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.
Excellently situated accommodation for all sights and amenities in York
I have walking difficulties so the distance from the centre of york was ideal. The welcome pack and friendliness shown by Mary made us feel very welcome. The flat was perfect. It was the coldest weekend in December but the flat was great lovely and warm with its xmas tree. There are a variety of places to eat at the end of the street. We couldn't have asked for more. We hope to return.

A lovely little gem of a place, clean and homely. Just right for 1 person and near the centre of York. The owners were so friendly and kind and went out of their way to offer any help.
I would certainly stay there again.
The only minor thing I would change is the location of the microwave - too low down and in cupboard. It was kind of fun to cook my tea sitting on the floor!!
Mary and Philip owners of Monks Retreat gave us a warm and friendly welcome to York. The cottage/ ground floor flat was very luxurious and it had all the facilities a couple would want on their holiday.
Monks Retreat well deserves the 5 star rating it has achieved over the years. We thoroughly recommend this accommodation- you will not be disappointed. Lastly this flat is literally 10 mins to the city centre and 5 mins walk from York Minster.

A great little bolt hole for the centre of York. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Only 10 minute walk to the Minster via picturesque Monk Bar. Small but adequate for two people sharing a bed. Very friendly and welcoming hosts.
We had a great holiday at Monks Retreat. It is the perfect location to explore York. The apartment was very well equipped and spotlessly clean.
We would highly recommend it to any couple visiting York.
Wonderful place to stay, really central with free secure parking. The owners were there to greet us and provided lots of information about the area as well scones, bread, tea, coffee,milk and other lovely touches, all of which were very much appreciated. It will be a pleasure to stay here again.
