Pear Tree House
This 2-bedroom York holiday home is perfect for couples, friends and families alike. It’s in a quiet street that’s just 5 minutes walk from both The Shambles and York Minster so you can park up the car (it comes with private parking) and forget about it.
The open plan living space leads directly onto the garden (which looks out over the city walls) and everything inside is top notch. Each bedroom is on a separate floor with plenty of wardrobe space and a private bathroom. Find out more.
Lendal Tower is very special indeed – perfect if you want to immerse yourself in York’s rich history. This holiday home with a difference dates back over 700 years and is housed in a medieval tower.
It has plenty of character and original features (well it is Grade I listed) and the star of the show is a roof terrace. Sit out and enjoy panoramic views over York. Find out more.
Moat Hall Cottage
If you like to have your cake and eat it to, Moat Hall Cottage could be the holiday home for you. It’s set in the peaceful hamlet of Little Ouseburn so is handy for both York and Harrogate.

Seaves Cottage Brandsby
This Grade II listed stone cottage is set on the edge of the beautiful Howardian Hills and dates all the way back to 1427. You can drive into York in just 15 minutes and spend the day exploring this Medieval City. We recommend heading to Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre in Summer 2018.
The picturesque village of Brandsby is perfect for a short break. The excellent Durham Ox at Crayke is just a short drive away.
Darcy’s Cottage is perfect for a romantic weekend break. This beautiful one-bedroom bolthole is just a 15 minute drive from central York. It’s set in the charming village of Holtby in the Yorkshire Wolds. You can enjoy a walk through the gently rolling hills one day then enjoy the best of York the next.
We think Harry’s Stable has got the country cottage look just right. This luxury holiday home has been beautifully designed and the setting is absolutely gorgeous. It’s set in the grounds of a 16th century farmhouse that’s a short 15-minute drive from York City Centre.
The perfect country retreat but in easy reach of the city – what more could you want?
There’s so much to see and do in York that it’s hard to know where to start. Make time to walk along the city walls, take a boat trip up the river, and visit York Minster for starters. Children will love a trip to Jorvik Viking Centre and York Museum has recently launched Yorkshire’s Jurassic World which is well worth a visit.
