A wonderful flat in a great location! It is exactly like it is depicted in the photos. After a nightmare train ride from London to York, the warm and friendly greeting by Philip and the little extras he provided(scones, jam, tea, loaf of bread and beer) brightened our day. We spent 8 lovely days in the flat and one day hope to return.

Clean. comfortable and convenient... Monks Retreat ticked all the boxes to make our week's stay in this splendid city all the more enjoyable - a great place to come 'home' to after a day's foot-slogging around York's historic streets (and walls) or exploring the surrounding countryside. Owners Philip and Mary Nelson were on hand upon our arrival to ensure we were fully familiarised with our accommodation and its amenities, explain access to the nearby secure parking, and share some of their knowledge of - and enthusiasm for - their city and Yorkshire more generally. A plentiful supply of guidebooks, brochures etc within the flat also helped us make the most of our week's stay. Clever use of the internal space meant that the two of us never felt cramped in what is admittedly a small apartment. We'll have no hesitation in booking Monks Retreat again next time we return to York.
