Standing in the shadows of York’s Gothic Minster, this cottage is a real gem in the very centre of the city.

City centre location

This Grade II listed house, built in 1606 stands in the shadows of York’s Gothic Minster and is reputedly the first house to be built after the completion of the minster. Retaining many original features, it is set over four floors and is ideally located in one of the most picturesque streets in the very centre of the city with an excellent variety of shops, inns and restaurants at your doorstep.
There is a plethora of activities and attractions to keep you and the family entertained in all weathers all year round including theatre, art gallery, multi cinema and river cruises, all within 500 yards. The National Railway Museum, Jorvik Viking Centre and Castle Museum, all within ¼ mile.
There are numerous other attractions and sites to see in the city, including a leisurely walk around the city walls or along the banks of the River Ouse. You can discover numerous snickleways and alleyways running between the old cobbled streets, and a stroll down the narrow, cobbled Shambles with its range of curio and gift shops is a delight.
Within easy travelling distance are various attractions including Castle Howard where the TV series ’Brideshead Revisited’ was filmed. An ideal holiday base. The North York Moors National Park, 25 miles. Heritage coast, 40 miles. Race course, 1 mile. Shops 5 yards, pubs 20 yards.

    Our 9th visit! And booked for our 10th.. Fab location, near to all amenities that wonderful York has to offer... Only down side is the main bathroom! This could do with updating, but wouldn't stop us going again and again!! Andrew the host is great!! See you in December 😁

    Owners very flexible about arrival and departure, sofas and beds comfortable, showers powerful, lovely wine left in welcome basket. Fridge and cooker not clean on arrival. Milk in fridge on arrival, but fridge turned off. Lack of instructions for cooker, heating and other things. Didn't appear to have Wi-Fi. Cushions for outside furniture covered in bird muck. Yard unattractive and neglected. Paintwork needed update throughout. Bathrooms needed repairs. Problems shutting and locking doors to bedrooms, bathrooms and external doors. Broken window in master bedroom and noise on street side of house from passers by extremely loud thought the day and prevented a proper sleep in the bedrooms that side at night. Cottage in convenient location for all attractions. Beautiful quirky building. Tasteful decor. Cosy and comfortable. We had a great time during our stay. Cottage was very expensive and should be improved to provide value.

    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!
