Minster Garden House. Unique modern property with historic features

  • Ref: 8994
  • Sleeps: 6 (2 Bedrooms)

Is this the best location for a holiday rental in York? Situated in the secured gated development "The Purey Cust" next to York Minster.  A totally unique architect designed  2 bed (sleeps 6 with use of the sofa bed) property that combines history with contemporary features.


On the ground floor level – shower room, open plan living room, dining area, snug/office workspace and uber contemporary fully fitted kitchen with granite worksurfaces and integrated appliances. The living room has full glazing allowing light to flood into this space. 

Travel back in time down the historic stone staircase and archway from 1616 into the 2 modern bedrooms underground (one double and one twin) and the main bathroom. There is also a sofa bed in the main living room which will enable the property to sleep 6 in total.

Outside there is parking for one car (a major benefit for a York city centre property) and an area where you can sit and enjoy a drink in the evening or why not enjoy your cuppa  in the morning before heading out to enjoy all that wonderful York has to offer.

As you would expect from such a high class property wifi, bedding, linen and towels are all included together with complimentary toiletries, coffee maker and coffee pods. 

We provide a meet and greet service to ensure that you have all the information you need about the property and the area and you have personal contact throughout your stay should you need it. 

Check in is after 3pm and check out is by 10am. No smoking (The property and The Purey Cust Development are non smoking), hen or stag parties or pets.



Minster Garden House is so close to York Minster it is hard to capture the atmosphere in a photo but we hope you like these shots of what truly would be a great stay in York.

We absolutely loved it. You could not wish for a more perfect location with private parking. The property is stunning. Very tastefully furnished and well equipped. We wanted for nothing. The beds are so comfy. Bathrooms are spacious. The small area outside was perfect to finish the day off in the sunshine with a glass of wine. We will definitely be back. — JB, 17 May 2019
This place ticks the box at every level. Firstly it is in a private development right next to the Minster - very safe and secure and less than a stones throw from York Minster - fab location. The photos do not do the Garden House justice. It is very tastefully and stylishly decorated with a spacious living area, very well equipped kitchen, modern bathrooms, great showers and 2 bedrooms with very comfy beds. The arch to the downstairs (bedroom area) is 500 ish years old so steeped in history - this place is unique and perfectly in tune with such a beautiful historic city. Carol and Rachel were very efficient, great communication and quick to respond and help. So impressed with Minster Garden House - we will be back — AM, 21 Oct 2018
Thanks for a great place to stay in York. The house is lovely, and perfectly located for exploring the city. It was also nice to have a secure place to park the car during our stay. I'll be sure to recommend your place to anyone visiting York! Cheers J. — J.M, 06 Jul 2018
