first visit here as we have been to York several times and always missed this one. We were not disappointed, beautiful house in lovely location. The room guides were very helpful and enthusiastic and full of information about Frank Green and the house. We also did the tour down into the cellars which is on top of a roman road,... More

Loved it here as it's a lovely building with a lot of history. On arrival you are given a set of headphones that basically guides you round the building whilst informing you of the history of the place. We visited here using the York Pass so it worked out good value but the actual entrance price is quite expensive.

My second or third time here so I guess that says it all. The staff are very affable here and there is a terrific tour of the cellar which is not to be missed. Cafe is very good with reasonable prices and nice cake, better than many National Trust cafes for sure.

This is a lovely well kept house which is run by the national trust. We paid for extra tours aswell as admission to the house which was well kept and interesting, with access to a variety of different rooms. The first tour we went on was exploring the attic and walking along the roof of the house, which had great... More

We discovered this lovely little gem whilst wandering round York, looking for something to do on a cold afternoon. This house is a hidden treasure by York Minster and houses some lovely furniture and antiques, the staff are all very knowledgeable and make the rooms come to life. The tea rooms are a treat too, and it was here that... More

If you like ghost stories, this is the place for you. The owner put studs around the furniture and said he would come back and haunt the house if the furniture was moved. An interesting, if quirky house and the ghost story told in the cellar added an extra dimention. Excellent, welcoming and friendly guides.

I enjoyed this National Trust property immensely, (and consequently was late meeting my partner!) - the rooms are attractive, filled with period decoration and the custodians are most friendly and eager to interact and discuss all aspects of this little 'Treasure-trove'! Well worth the visit.
