    Fantastic location , the minster bells wasn't as noisy as we thought, so don't let this put you off. Loved how the house had character, sloping floors ,wonky walls, the only thing was we couldn't open windows upstairs and was a very warm weekend but again would not put us off from coming again.

    Nice little location with lots of character - would benefit from a nice hot tub up the top end of the garden and some unsqueaky beds but couldn’t fault the location!

    The house was in an excellent location. We were well received on arrival and were pleasantly surprised that we were left basket of lovely things when we looked in the kitchen. Everyone in our party loved the house and we all enjoyed a good nights sleep whilst we stayed there. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone who was looking for a characterful place to stay with all the comforts of home.

    dear old york , rented this house in york for the weekend, as it was my wifes 70th birthday, so we could take the kids with us for mum and nan nans celibration, the house was absolutely cracking, everything in there to make your stay really comfortable, even a welcome hamper and wine, the house is really old and the kids thought it very harry potterish, i bet they thought they may have discovered a secret passage or two, the youngests,sixteen oldest twenty four, they never outgrow harry potter, the house was lovely and warm all weekend just like home, andrew the owner even trimmed the house with balloons and banners for my wifes birthday, a true gentleman, he and his family are lovely obliging people, so if you want belrefy house i suggest you dont waste time it really is a wonderfull old house in a wonderfull spot, so get in there before i return, you will not regret it.

    What an amazing house. Location was brilliant, right in the heart of York and so close to everything you needed. The house has so much history and the quirkiness of it only added to what was a fabulous weekend. The beds were clean and comfortable and the living room was so cozy and welcoming. The kitchen was well equipped and having a table to accommodate us all for our Friday night takeaway was perfect, a couple of the chairs could do with some attention as not very steady. Ear plugs are useful given the proximity to the Cathedral and the bells! Collection and drop off of the key couldn't have been easier, Andrew was so kind and helpful and very flexible on our day of departure. Sadly we did not encounter the resident ghost! Would definitely stay at Belfrey House again.

    We loved the quirkiness of the cottage and the rooms. Everything you need is provided. Would love to stay in the summer and make use of the outside. The down side was we had to clean both bathrooms although everything else was fine. Would definitely go again.

    I have stayed in Belfry House with my family twice and each time we have really enjoyed ourselves. Arrangements for collecting the key etc were very convenient and the owners/ letting personnel couldn't have been more helpful. We will certainly be returning to Belfry House .

    Excellent location, bathrooms need improving, and could do with the addition of Wi-Fi. But the house has great character, would stay again.

    We enjoyed a fabulous week staying at Belfrey House. The house is very quirky with mad staircases and floor angles! Beds were comfortable and the house was well equipped and clean. The house couldn't be in a more central area of York, you can almost touch the minster and everything is walkable. We used a car park on North Street through JustPark which was a much better price than the NCP car parks and only a 5-10 minute walk. Being in the city centre there is a fair bit of noise from passing pedestrians during the late evening, but it is quite entertaining!! If travelling with older relatives I would recommend only the more nimble in the group use the very top bedroom as the stairs are very steep! It was ideal for our teenagers. Only improvements could be that the back yard looks a little tired, and the only opening windows are in the twin back bedroom. This wasn't a problem for us as it did minimise the noise from outside, and the weather wasn't too hot.

    Enjoyed the central location next to minster, fully part of York city experience. House is old, so wonky floors and dodgy staircases, but full of character and very cosy. Plumbing all works - 3 toilets and 2 showers very good. Also enjoyed the dishwasher and clothes washer. Both kitchen and lounge great to gather and chat as family. Outside space is nice to have as another family area, but little view and lots of noise from the pub. Being central means a lot of noise! The windows are ancient and do not keep out the revelry, which goes on to 4am at weekends. Then street cleaners/ deliveries begin at 7am. Do the maths! We had a lovely week, and being central really helped us. Top tip- sort out parking before arriving in york. We used 'your parking space' to buy a week long space behind some shops- so much better than £26 per day in council car park!

    Had a great weekend. The house is amazing and I can't wait to return. Location can't be beaten, character unique. The owners were great and left a lovely hamper. Stories of haunting and ghosts didn't bother me, in fact I slept in the attic and had no encounters. Quirky, unique and we loved it
