We have just returned home from a 2 night stay in precentors court with my family. The house was stunning and wonderfully kept. The location could not of been any better, with stunning views of the minster. The house was fully equip and everything was thought of. 6 of us stayed here and we had plenty of room, would defiantly recommend this house to anyone who wants to see York but to also relax in a home from home environment.

“Hit the Spot!!!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Dad and I stayed here for two nights in late May and were totally delighted! We hunt for neat character filled accommodations in the heart of fantastic historic cities...and this place was just perfect! Here are the cliffnotes: historic building in the heart of the historic district, architectural details, spacious, extremely clean, modern bathrooms, big dine-in kitchen, wonderfully fluffy bedding, washer/dryer, and lovely property management. We loved it! :-)

This house was beautiful! attention to detail was superb and the house so well situated in York. The owners were brilliant and made everything so easy in terms of finding the place, parking and whats on and around York. We were made to feel very welcome and the property felt like home! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wanted to escape to York for a few days!

It's the most beautifully decorated house right opposite York Minster, in the middle of the city. They've thought of everything - top of the range linen, quirky furniture & art work, groovy internet TV, very own parking space (up the road) etc. etc etc Can't say enough good things about it - we had the best time.

“Beautiful property - a hidden gem in a great location”
Reviewed April 21, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I'm not often given to writing reviews of places I have stayed, but felt I just wanted to share with everyone what a fantastic property 2 Precentor's Court is! It is a truly gorgeous, historic house in a quiet little street right next to York Minster.

The property is beautifully decorated and oozes luxury and comfort - full of antiques, original art and lovely soft furnishings. The bedrooms are lovely, with views over the Minster and modern bathrooms have been imaginatively fitted into this characterful and historic house.

We loved the keypad entry, small courtyard garden to relax after a full day's shopping (!) and central, large kitchen diner for meeting up to plan the next day/evening. Free parking a short walk from the property was a real surprise in the centre of York, but being so central you can walk to all the main attractions and soak up the atmosphere.

We enjoyed a walk through the Museum Gardens and along the river, and found some great restaurants literally just round the corner (we especially liked No 8 in Gillygate).

All in all a great place to stay and a hidden gem. I had a great time with friends and will definitely return, hopefully for longer next time. Try a stay here you won't be disappointed. The Boxing Hare team think of everything and make your stay most enjoyable.
