Beautiful House!

We enjoyed touring this amazingly beautiful home. We learned about the haunted cell and enjoyed listening to the stories and history of this house.

This was very expensive for what you get. There wasn't much to see in the house so I would have skipped this place.

We were in York and have a National Trust membership so decided to visit Treasurer's House. We went into the basement for the short Ghost story. Highly recommended and very creepy! I struggled to find a rational explanation for it.... The house itself is an interesting insight into the mind of an unusual owner.

A very pleasant house in the middle of York with very pretty, though small gardens. I visited alone and had lunch in the café. I was treated with great kindness and the food was lovely.

Very much about the previous owner who bequeathed the house to the National Trust , Frank Green. The rooms are lovely and a testament to a social climber with OCD. Usual National Trust formula - house, tea room, gift shop. Ghost tours of the cellar cost extra (and the NT are not cheap to start with).

One of the better kept National Trust houses, from ghosts stories to the very comfortable tea rooms down in the cellars of the house. Well kept gardens and plenty of seating ares to relax by. For a medium size house there was something in every room that would take your attention as well as the staff being very knowledgeable about... More

This is a great place with really nice food too, the staff are very informative and the house is great there are lots of interactions for the kids and our favourite place was the underground ghost story (not scary)

Visited Treasurers House on the spur of the moment, it is well worth a visit, interesting house and plenty of interesting facts. Each room seemed to have a guide to tell you more snippets of information. Also lovely tea rooms in the basement.

Trying to get the most out of our National Trust membership, we stumbled on this little gem. Hiding at the back of the Minster this lovely house has exquisite views of the Minster. Does a funny ghost tour in the cellars under the house. Gorgeous garden and lovely cafe.
