We enjoyed our explore around this lovely building. Really interesting history. The kids did the treasure trail and that kept them busy looking for different things. Worth a look especially if you are NT members.

We visited on the Heritage Open day and so our visit cost nothing. The house was owned by an Industrialist who had an eclectic taste in furnishings. The house has a good number of rooms to visit with numerous ghost tales to be told. There are information stands in each room but I felt it was rather jumbled and learnt... More

We visited expecting just to see round the house but the experience is so much more ! Make sure you include the cellars and the old servants quarters in your day out and you won't be disappointed.

Sadly I didn't have a huge amount of time to visit this property and learn or it's history, and it is not as amazing or unique as other NT properties. However, as a member, it was still worth a visit and as usual there are some fine rooms, furniture and other pieces on display

Created by an eccentric Englishman it is a gem. NT property situated behind the Minster. The guides are very helpful and have lots of stories to tell. The cellar ghost tour is well worth doing. Cafe but we didn't partake this time. Recommended.

Not knowing at all what to expect as it was an unplanned visit, the Treasurer's House was a little gem. The delightful garden was a joy to sit in and rest the feet after a stomp around the streets, and the house itself was interesting and full of fascinating artefacts and quirky (slightly tacky, but interesting nonetheless) additions. The room... More

Close to the Minster this house and garden, in the care of the National Trust, is a very interesting reminder of the way people lived in York centuries ago. The café is excellent and can be accessed without going into the main part of the house.

We visited here with the York Pass. The Pass gives you 1/2/3 days of sightseeing around York and the surrounding countryside. The entry fee to the house is £7, but free with the Pass. The House is well names with some very interesting treasures. Look out for a most unusual clock!! Well worth the entry fee.

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
