About Pear Tree House

Welcome to Pear Tree House, a stunning 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom luxury holiday home which looks directly out onto the historic city walls in central York. This beautiful property has recently been subject to an outstanding refurbishment and is the ultimate city pad for those looking for 5 Star Hotel quality with all the benefits of self-catering thrown in. Unusually for York there's a lovely outside space to enjoy, and with off-road parking outside and all the delights of the city just a short stroll away, this property is pretty much perfect.

Set in a quiet courtyard in the heart of the city centre, Pear Tree House is a sophisticated and elegant holiday home which feels luxurious at every turn. On the ground floor you'll find a bright and spacious open plan living area home to the lounge, dining space and kitchen. Everything in this stylish property shouts quality, from the warm Karndean wooden-style floors to the contemporary comfortable furniture.

The lounge features a generous L-shaped sofa which is perfect for stretching out on after a busy day sightseeing in the city. There's a large 4K SMART TV on the wall so its the perfect place to snuggle up and enjoy some chill time. Wi-Fi is provided too.

The modern bespoke kitchen is very pleasing to the eye; gorgeous duck egg blue units and a chunky wooden work-top create a calm and peaceful look. There is a washing machine, a tumble dryer and a dishwasher. The cupboards are well stocked with all the equipment you'll need to cook up a storm and it comes with all mod cons. The pretty dining table and chairs sits next to the lounge, a nice spot for breakfast and lunch whilst you plan which of York's famous attractions to visit that day. Downstairs also has a handy WC.

The bedrooms in Pear Tree House are set over the first and second floors and each have access to their own exclusive bathroom facilities. The first of which is a large master bedroom; a beautiful room which boasts a Super-king size bed, which can also be set up as two singles. (please note this will need to be requested at the point of booking), exquisite bed linen and contemporary oak furniture. A spacious shower room sits next door on this floor. Up to the second floor to discover another lovely bedroom, this time with a king-size bed. Both beds feature top of the range hand crafted natural fibre mattresses with breathable layers of wool and luxury cashmere. This floor also features a dressing room and a second bathroom complete with a bath and double-headed shower over-head. You can see the York Minster from this bathroom window, a little reminder of your historic setting!

Outside to the rear of the house is a very pleasant sheltered patio garden which enjoys uninterrupted views of the city walls, a real luxury in York. Patio furniture is provided so you can enjoy a long lazy lunch al fresco here. Indulge with a glass of something good while you admire the historic city walls just feet away. One of the charming things about Pear Tree House is that York Minster and The Shambles are less than 5 minutes' walk however the location is deliciously quiet tucked away down a peaceful courtyard - the perfect retreat from the city.

Unusually for York, there is a dedicated off road parking space for one car right outside the house.

Local Area

The jewel in North Yorkshire's crown, we think York is one of the best break destinations in England.  But don't just take our word for it.  Voted 'Best UK City' by the Telegraph's travel section in 2008, York is a favourite amongst even the most seasoned of travellers.  York topped the Bing 2011 survey as Britain's 'Most Beautiful City', and in Lonely Planet's 2014 Best list, Yorkshire was described as the best place in Europe and third best in the world, to visit.

This ancient walled city has been the north's spiritual capital for 2000 years, but that's not say it is stuck in the past; York's affluent population and its influx of tourist pounds has helped to create a cultural and commercial oasis.  History seeps out of every cobbled street, but the crooked old buildings house a fantastic range of contemporary designer shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. 

Everywhere in York is easily reachable by foot as this small but perfectly formed city houses most of its main attractions within the city walls.  As this property is right on the walls you don't have far to go to reach all of its many attractions, in fact it's less than 5 minutes' walk to the Shambles.

Middle Ages' town planning means it can take quite some time to get your bearings, but finding your way around the labyrinth of warped streets is part of the fun.   A word of warning to the girls; bring some flats for sight-seeing / shopping, the cobbles play hell with heels.  

If you are looking for outside space in which to relax, you have the choice of a number of parks and gardens, including Dean's Park just around the corner next to the Minster, the Yorkshire Museum Gardens and next to the River Ouse, and slightly further afield, Rowntree Park with its children's playground, tennis courts and bowling green.

Good place to stay. Just a few minutes walk to York city centre. Surprisingly very quiet and a parking space to boot! The house was pleasant, clean and comfortable with excellent showers etc. Would we stay again? In a nutshell, yes.
Not cheap but most places that are any good will cost a tad more.
We would certainly recommend this house to other people.
The only thing we noticed was a lack of leaflets for local restaurants that will deliver a takeaway...hardly a criticism though.
Overall, a very enjoyable stay.

Pear Tree House is situated ideally for a visit to York. The house is furnished to a very high standard with all you require provided. The only downside was the size of the living area for 4 adults. Luckily we were out most of the time but its a shame as its such a lovely house.
