The property

Minster Secret Garden is a first floor apartment in the heart of the stunning medieval city of York.

This lovely apartment is almost hidden within York's Minster Quarter with the Minster at its core and the walls around its border, and is ideal for a romantic break.

The apartment offers the best of both worlds, a private oasis in the very heart of York, coupled with its amazing location tucked away from the busy thoroughfare of Low Petergate.

This attractive apartment is approached through wrought iron gates leading to a most beautiful and leafy communal garden with a private view of The Minster.

There is a staircase or lift to the apartment and through the front door there is an open plan living area which offers guests the choice of cooking a delicious meal in the well-equipped kitchen or just relaxing after another memorable day.

The bedroom and sitting area overlook The Minster Choir School and the Church of Holy Trinity on Goodramgate dating back to around 1082.

The king-size bed provides a blissful night's sleep and there is a sofa bed for extra guests, together with a bathroom.

There are beautiful views from most of the windows in the apartment.

Low Petergate is one of the most picturesque in the Quarter and is named after the Cathedral of St Peter known as The Minster, steeped in history and rich in architecture.

The apartments have been superbly weaved from a 300-year old building which was latterly a girls' school educating some of the most important women in Britain.

It is a very peaceful place, despite its closeness to the hustle and bustle of the surrounding medieval streets.

York is a most beautiful city overflowing with history.

For a great appreciation of the city, take a boat trip along the River Ouse or a sightseeing tour by bus.

If walking is your preference, take an elevated tour via the walls.

At over two miles long, they offer an incredible opportunity to take a bird's eye view of the city including a new vista following a restoration project.

The choice of museums is endless, including the National Railway Museum, Castle Museum and the Chocolate Story Exhibition to delight your taste buds!

Of course, no visit to York would be complete without the quintessential afternoon tea experience at Bettys world-famous tea rooms.

A superb apartment in a truly spectacular city centre location.

About the location

YORK

The city of York needs no recommendation, for it teems with interest for the holidaymaker: the Minster, its medieval walls, boat trips on the River Ouse, York Races, museums (including the famous National Railway Museum and the Castle Museum), and the internationally-renowned Jorvik Viking Centre and its "time trip" experience. Summer and winter, there is something to fascinate the whole family. Explore York’s quaint streets and hidden corners, or take an excursion further afield to the Dales, Moors or the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. Yorkshire is rich in stately homes, with Harewood House and Castle Howard just two of several within an hour’s drive. A cycling city boasting two theatres, character pubs and great shopping, York has it all.
