    Monks Retreat is a beautifully maintained cottage. We received a very warm welcome and informative description of York. We were very impressed by the cleanliness and equipment provided. Also very thoughful of owners after our long journey, to provide essentials and cake. The location was perfect and on the outskirt of the city walls; there is lots to do! The railway museum is a definite must and walking the walls. Whitby is only an hour away and certainly worth a visit. We would happily stay here again.

    Monks Retreat was lovely. The property was immaculate and was very well equipped for anyone wanting to dine in. The only slight problem we had was using the bath tub which has quite a high side but that is more a indication of our physical condition than a criticism of the property. Location wise, my wife has mobility problems but we managed to get around to most areas without ever using the car. It is a lot closer to the centre than it appears on maps. I would not hesitate to recommend it to others even though the rate was higher than some other properties we considered. In this case you seem to get what you pay and that is quality. also the little extras like the welcome treats.

    We were greeted by a friendly owner, who made us feel at home and kindly provided scones, cakes and beer. A big thanks for this. The location was great, quiet but right next to the City Walls with the added bonus of secure parking. We had a great time exploring the many places to visit and things to do in York.
