Due to the current 'rule of 6' - we have vastly reduced the prices on this property to make it affordable for 6 people to stay. This is great news for travellers, as it means that you can hire a large property and spread out accordingly!! This beautifully restored Victorian townhouse with it’s fine period features is set in the heart of York. The famous York Minster is a 2 minute walk away along with a selection of fine restaurants, designer / gift shops and pubs within a few metres.

In fact the house is closer to town than the actual car parks Minster Bells is also ideal for family holidays, it is close to the art gallery, the National Railway Museum transfer terminal, Theatre Royal and Bootham Bar (with access to the walled walk). Bootham Bar leads you into the famous narrow cobbled streets full of a quirky mix of curio shops and cafes with street entertainers, the Shambles, museums, the Yorvik Viking centre and so much more within a short distance.More
