Loved our time at Minster House!!!
There was nothing, not even the weather outside, that diminished our fun and nothing stopped us enjoying our time there.
We all would come back to stay in a heartbeat. The perfect house and situation for a big family gathering, and really good for people of all ages!!

All the communications with Janet were a joy. Her response time is excellent and all the instructions in the welcome folder are clear and concise.

Thank you!!

“Perfect for family -- a well located, well appointed and well managed rental home”

My family -- me, my wife, inlaws, and our two toddlers -- spent a lovely week at Minster House. It was wonderful to be so close to York Minster (an easy 10 min. walk), excellent pubs, the river, shops, etc. The owner, Janet, was extremely professional, easy to contact, and accommodating. This was our first international trip with our 1- and 2-year olds, and she provided a high chair, child dishware and cutlery, child cots, and lots of toys, which our kids loved. Janet also offered lots of detailed recommendations about things to see, places to eat, and shopping. The house itself is lovely, with a big kitchen, formal dining room, a delightful little back yard, and folding doors that allow easy flow between the house and yard. We had no real complaints, aside from some slow Internet service, which Janet said she would look into promptly. We would definitely stay at Minster House again!

“Fantastic house and location”

My family and I (8 in total) stayed for a week in early August and we couldn't have been happier with the house. The standard of cleanliness was excellent and the house was well stocked with clean towels, plates and utensils.
Janet was extremely helpful at all times and always replied quickly to any questions we had and the information left was very detailed.
The enclosed garden was perfect for our 2 year old and great for my Gran to sit out and enjoy the sun.
The house is very spacious, especially the kitchen and living room areas.
The house is located within easy walking distance to the Minster and the road links are great.
I definitely recommend the house to anyone, especially large groups/families.

“Fantastic house in amazing location!”

I come from York and every now and again like a trip back down memory lane. We booked this house as it was brilliantly located for the city centre, has parking (which can be tricky in York) and is on an easy to reach route out of town for the other local attractions such as The York Maze for the children and Designer Outlet for the Grandmothers! Having stayed in one of the owner's other properties in the past I was confident the Minster House would be of an equally high standard and the owners would be helpful. The house was modern, spacious and immaculately clean, you can tell that it is loved. Coming with several generations meant we needed a house that was safe and suitable for children, it has a great enclosed garden and the toys provided were fabulous, but that had the space for Grandparents to get a bit of peace and quiet when needed. The Minster House ticked all these boxes. Booking was simple and the owners responded quickly to queries we emailed them with. I would highly recommend a trip to York, there is so much to do, especially if you have a car and can get to the coast and Moors as well. The house has a brilliantly equipped kitchen but with all the fantastic restaurants and cafes York has to offer you won't need it! We found this house the perfect base for our large group and wouldn't hesitate to book it again.

“Friends gathering”

We recently stayed with friends in Minster House, with our group coming from a number of cities across the UK, including London, Manchester and Edinburgh. York was the perfect location, and Minster House the perfect house.

The accommodation was clean, well equipped and spacious and very child friendly with cutlery and toys for the little ones in our group aged 2-7. It is perfect for large groups and we couldn’t have asked for a better location. It is a short 5 minute walk to the convenience store and a 10 min walk to the tourist sights of York.

We loved the kitchen diner area which was fully utilised to prepare meals for our large group. And the main dining room was equally spacious. Everyone had a lovely time and spent quite a lot of our time just relaxing in the house.

Janet was quick to respond to all our queries pre check in. But she went above and beyond when our daughter left her favourite soft toy under her pillow at Minster House. We only discovered this during bedtime of our first night home. Janet was quick to confirm she located Chickie and promptly posted her home to us but not before sending us photos of Chickie in case our daughter was missing it. All I can say is in addition to having a lovely house she has a heart of gold!

We can’t wait to go back to Minster House and York.
