“stunning house in a magical location”
Reviewed 18 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We had such a wonderful long weekend at 2 Precentor's court celebrating a special family birthday. Even with a 2 year old in the party everything in the house was perfect. From the complimentary betty's Christmas cake and prosecco to the exceptionally comfortable beds and beautiful linen we couldn't have asked for more. The house was spotless and decorated with such great attention to detail. It was a truely magical house. For a large party of 8 adults and a toddler we had absoultely everything we needed and more. The location is second to non and incredible at the festive season. Very kindly the house was decked out for Christmas which just added to its charm. I can't praise this place enough, We will definately be returning asap! Many Thanks to Jane for everything.

“Fantastic holiday rental in the very centre of York”

person found this review helpful

A brilliantly located holiday rental in the very centre of York. Opposite the minster with all of York's attractions on your doorstep. The house was furnished immaculately and had everything we could need. The hosts were brilliant and gave us all the info we needed before we arrived and provided us with lovely extras such as the house decorated for Christmas, a bottle of prosecco and a Betty's Christmas cake....extra special touches!!! Would highly recommend it to anyone. We travelled as a group of 8 adults and 1 toddler and found the house perfect in terms of size and provisions.

“What an amazing place to stay!!!”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This house is gorgeous, quirky, modern yet very old. All the mod cons with a touch of oldy worldy charm!
The beds & pillows were so comfy I wish I could have taken them home. The situation is fabulous, seconds away from all the shops, culture & delicious restaurants, pubs, tea rooms & eateries!
Only down side is not enough seating in the living room for 8 of us, had to sit on kitchen chairs or cushions on the floor & with the very efficient heating it was very hot! Which is far better than being cold! Would definitely go again if travelling to York!

“The Place to be in York”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Had a great stay during August. Relatives wedding was the purpose for the trip and I found the location, accommodation and facilities a perfect compliment for the visit.
Spacious, convenient, modern (in a listed property), in fact extremely enjoyable.

Liked best: Special location and exceptional accommodation.
Liked least: Parking was not outside the door. No rain so the walk to car park was pleasant if not convenient. But the location is special.
