Visited this very interesting house. The reason why I have only rated it two stars was because the children were excited to see the part where the roman legion were seen. Upon arrival we were told that this area was only accessible by guided tour ONLY and all tickets were sold for the day. This is not mentioned at all... More

Very close to York Minster and well worth a visit. Gives great insight as to how the "books" were balanced over the years

Had visited before, and was disappointed that many rooms were closed off. But the garden is lovely, and for the first time I got to visit the 'haunted' crypt! That was fascinating, and well worth it!

Visited some time ago but since then more rooms have been opened up. Extremely interesting and one of the National Trusts earliest acquisitions. Highly recommended.

Having already visited the treasurers house on a previous trip it was great to see the revived garden planting in front of the house. The blues and whites contrasted beautifully while providing a serene space for people to sit, eat lunch or read a book

A fab National Trust house, right in the centre of York. Beautiful gardens which are free to enter (we had our picnic on a bench!) and the house is full of gorgeous treasures and spooky tales told by friendly, knowledgeable staff! Check it out! You won't be disappointed!

We enjoyed our visit and paid extra to do the servants quarters, which involves a climb up to the roof. We also did the basement tour seeing the remains of the Roman Road, always good hearing ghost stories.

The house is next to the Minster. Its last owner, Frank Green used the house to show off his furniture and left the house and its contents to the Trust early in the twentieth centure. There are volunteer guides in all the rooms. The access to the gardens is free. There is a tea room / cafe in the basement.

What a surprise! The previous owner, Frank, gifted this fine structure to the NT and all of the furniture on display, the strange mixtures of furniture collected by Frank over his lifetime certainly ranks him as the LAWRENCE LLEWELYN of his day. Don't think I'll be taking any of his tastes into my own house though!

House tucked away behind the minster. Dark green decor and interesting minstrels gallery upstairs. Tea rooms downstairs plus shop in the old kitchen. NT members offered extra bonus of visiting the cellar for guided tour to see and hear the story of where Roman soldiers where seen from knee high upwards walking along the lower Roman road which runs through...
