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.

    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!

    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.
