This house has been made from three buildings and each room is designed by the original owner in different periods. The great hall is impressive but was never there in earlier times.Lovely gardens at the front planted with lots of white tulips.The volunteers in each room were a little too enthusiastic for my taste. I sometimes like to make my... More

The NT guides are outstanding in their welcoming nature and very knowledgable historical anecdotes which they impart to visitors in an engaging and friendly manner. The house has the very... More

Only disappointment ordered barmbrack and wyenslydale with a cup of tea and there was no cake -they had sold out. Considering we were in York and it is traditional... More

While in York and being N.Trust members we visited The Treasurer's House. Frank Green who used to own the house before donating it to the N T certainly did some travelling and rebuilt what was once a number of small houses, into one big place which you can see today. It is filled with many artifacts from all over the... More

A really interesting house with a lot of character and history. What makes this place really worth a visit are the volunteers whose knowledge and enthusiasm with which they impart it.

The house is full of beautiful furniture and lots of other things, also ask about the studs in the floors! We also did the... More
