“Difficult to improve!”
Reviewed 7 February 2011 for a stay in January 2011

A brisk and interesting walk from the railway station, past the Minster, to just outside the city walls, and there's County House Retreat with the owners waiting to welcome us.
The apartment had every thing needed, and was spotless. The city is a good place to visit for a break. Should we return to York to see things for which we didn't have time, the rest of the Railway Museum for example, then we'd want to stay here again.

“The perfect home-away-from-home to explore York and the countryside....”

This was an absolutely delightful place to stay - a real treasure! Mary and Philip graciously met us upon arrival (and had stocked milk, tea, coffee, scones, bread, butter and jam ahead of time to add to the warm welcome). We spent four nights playing house - everything was there for our comfort, so much so that one day we just stayed in and relaxed. The location was perfect for exploring York - you can leave your car parked for your entire stay if you like. Just a few minutes' walk to a huge variety of pubs, restaurants, shops, and the Minster, it is ideally placed. It was great to have an impressively kitted-out kitchen for breakfasts and evening home-picnic options (there are many great delis to tempt you!). The bed was extraordinarily comfortable, rooms well-lit and warm, everything was sparkling and fresh, like new, and the place itself is a historic property which made us feel grand walking up to as we'd come 'home' from outings...nothing at all could be improved upon. I highly recommend County House Retreat as a perfect place to get away and recharge, without having to deal with airports, timetables, luggage limits, etc. We'll be back!
