    Monks Retreat is a very special place in the centre of York. Would highly recommend this cottage apartment - the owner met us with a lovely afternoon tea and helped to ensure we had a great stay and discovered some hidden gems in York.

    Excellent location being just a short walk into the centre. Very secluded and quiet. Made to feel very welcome by Mary. Cannot think of any faults with this property. Definitely recommended.

    A lovely quiet holiday home. So convenient for the City centra and all York has to offer. Once parked the car wheels never turned till we left. Easy wander to Sainsbury’s and so many restaurants and pubs, spoilt for choice. We look forward to returning.

    This was a fantastic apartment, we loved it. Everything you could imagine was provided and the location in the city was excellent. We were met by the owners who helped us in with our luggage and had a lovely afternoon tea waiting for us. We are booking again.

    A comfortable and well appointed place to stay within easy reach of all of Yorks places of interest. I would recommend it as a holiday location in the historic city of york.
