We could see the front of the Minster from the front door and thus very easy to pop across for Evensong or for the children to have a little run on the grass of Dean's Park. We had travelled to York by train and I...More

I'm going to give this review in two parts: location and the house itself. The location is breathtaking. Central to the city, it is literally 15 yards from The Minster itself. It is history actually on your doorstep. The main parts of the city, including...More

Expertly renovated town house with enough mod cons to make the stay comfortable without detracting from the history and quirkiness of the historic property. Literally a stone's throw away from York Minster and the Shambles so no need to use your car to get around...More

About the neighbourhood
The Property is situated right next to York Minster, Northern Europe's second largest Gothic Cathedral and listed in Lonely Planet's top 10 global 'sights to make you feel small'. It is on a small and quiet street most of which dates from the early eighteenth century. Precentor's Court is a dead-end (though there is a small 'Snickleway' that comes out by the Hole in the Wall pub), and therefore is almost traffic free apart from the occasional van or resident's car.
The historic and picturesque City of York crams an awful lot into its medieval walls. It is a very compact city, much of which is pedestrianised, and most places can be easily reached on foot (which is by far the best way to explore a place). When you get tired there are always buses and taxis to...
