About the neighbourhood
Monkgate is very popular with visitors. It is closer to the Minster than many of the properties inside the city walls and County House Retreat has the advantage of private gated parking at no extra cost. We also have a full size Supermarket as on of our neighbours. Visitors like us because we are close to all the attractions, restaurants and bars but tucked away so you aren't disturbed by the city's night life.
Getting around
The city centre location means we are within 4 minutes walk of the Minster and close to many shops, restaurants and the all main tourist attractions. It's about a 15 minute walk from the Railway/Bus Station and there is a electronically gated private car park (one space - no extra fee) for those who bring a car.
