Monks Retreat - 4 Minutes From The Minster
average rating of 5.0 based on 5 reviews

Excellent and quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Immaculately clean, really handy parking space, and a three to four minute walk into town. The house has everything you would need, is well equipped and in a really convenient place. A perfect location for all of York's attractions. Highly recommended.

Easy booking from the USA. My husband and I stayed 8 nights and could have stayed more

Mary was at the flat to greet us on our arrival, and only a phone call away if we needed anything.

Thank you Mary and Phillip for a wonderful stay

I had booked this apartment as a surprise for my husband and it did not disappoint. The flat was immaculate throughout and perfectly situated for a city break in York. Mary good not have been more helpful and even arranged for some shopping to be done beforehand so we did not have to worry about buying in any provisions.

A perfect stay all round.

A wonderful warm and cozy welcome from our hosts only added to the pleasurable stay in the compact and very clean apartment! With the added bonus of being only a few minutes walk from the city centre and off street parking the location was just perfect for exploring York. A very enjoyable experience! And one to recommend to others.

Het was een top appartement waar alles in aanwezig was en de eigenaar had er voor gezorgd dat er aan niets ontbrak. Zeker een aanrader.
