Getting Here


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
