Property code: G0109

Set in a quiet courtyard in the heart of the city centre, this property is under half a mile from York's top attractions. Walk the city walls, browse the cobbled streets of The Shambles, relax on the grass of Dean's Park or stop for a bite to eat at world-famous Betty's Tea Rooms. Escape the city for a day and head 25 miles north to the breathtaking North York Moors National Park, perfect for blowing away the cobwebs. This area of Yorkshire is also home to a string of charming market towns, including Harrogate (22 miles) to the west and Thirsk (25 miles) to the north.

Inside, a spacious and open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is at the heart of this home. One wall is lined with stylish and contemporary duck-egg kitchen units, topped with chunky wooden work surfaces and every appliance and utensil you could need. Dine at the circular table nearby before settling down for a relaxing evening of TV or film on the cosy L-shaped sofa. Set over the first and second floors, each of the elegant bedrooms has access to its own private bathroom facilities. The large master bedroom boasts a super king-size bed, contemporary oak furniture and a spacious shower room, while the king-size bedroom upstairs has access to a bathroom with overhead shower and wonderful views of the York Minster. There is also a delightful dressing room on the second floor.

Step outside to discover a charming sheltered patio garden, finished with colourful pot plants and a table and chairs for al fresco meals with a view of those famous city walls. Unusually for York, there is a dedicated off-road parking space for one car outside the property.

The jewel in North Yorkshire's crown, we think York is one of the best short break destinations in England. But don't just take our word for it. Voted 'Best UK City' by the Telegraph's travel section in 2008, York is a favourite amongst even the most seasoned of travellers. York topped the Bing 2011 survey as Britain's 'Most Beautiful City', and in Lonely Planet's 2014 Best List, Yorkshire was described as the ‘best place in Europe’ and ‘third best in the world’, to visit.

This ancient walled city has been the north's spiritual capital for 2000 years, but that's not to say it is stuck in the past; York's affluent population and its influx of tourist pounds has helped to create a cultural and commercial oasis. History seeps out of every cobbled street, but the crooked old buildings house a fantastic range of contemporary designer shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Everywhere in York is easily reachable by foot as this small but perfectly formed city houses most of its main attractions within the city walls. As this property is right on the walls, you don't have far to go to reach all of its many attractions, in fact, it's less than 5 minutes' walk to the Shambles. Middle Ages' town planning means it can take quite some time to get your bearings but finding your way around the labyrinth of warped streets is part of the fun.

If you are looking for outside space in which to relax, you have the choice of a number of parks and gardens, including Dean's Park just around the corner next to the Minster, the Yorkshire Museum Gardens and next to the River Ouse, and slightly further afield, Rowntree Park with its children's playground, tennis courts and bowling green.

The best holiday let we have been on EVER. We have been to numerous, supposedly 5* lets, and this one beats them out of the water. Would highly recommend this unique property.

The cottage is in a perfect location with walking distance to all the tourist attractions and to the shops and restaurants. The cottage has everything you need and is very comfortable.

We did come to the same place last year, and hopefully will be coming again next year. Very clean, excellent location, high standard of accommodation. The owner is very helpful, especially in ringing us to advise of road works taking place outside, and giving alternative access details.

Great location with everything right on the doorstep (unless you want to go to the outlet mall, but even that's only a 5 min drive away). The town house was very well equipped with all the mod cons and instructions just in case. Would highly recommend this property and would definately use again.

A group of four friends we go away every November to visit Christmas Markets. The Pear Tree cottage was perfect for our stay in York. We walked in to a warm inviting home from home. The beds were so comfortable the kitchen had everything and more than you needed. The fact there are two bathrooms one on each floor was perfect for us. The chocolateRead mores wine and crisps made you feel welcome (although we resisted).On leaving the cottage it is literally 5 mins walk and you are amongst shops and restaurants we tried the Italian La Piazza a truly family run restaurant with Pappa on the reception the food was lovely also.All in all a lovely break made all the better by us booking the 5* Pear Tree Cottage If we go back to York Hide

If you want a clean and comfortable home within walking distance of Yorks shops etc this is perfect. With the additional convenience of a parking space the location was perfect and even though it is close to the inner ring road it was remarkably quiet!

Reviewed by Sally 20th October 2018

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay at Pear Tree House. It is the annoying details that usually let a place down and from the start, the atention to detail was abviously taken very seriously. All internet communication, instructions, payment, etc, were taken care of efficiently and that sets you up forRead more a good stay.The house is top quality and felt luxurious; again the eye for detail worked, but with a couple of caveats. Like other guests (guestbook comments) we remarked that there should have been a blind at the back door. We did a lot of cooking and having only glass cutting surfaces meant that all the knives provided were completely blunt. You could also do with instructions on operating the 2nd-floor shower!But these are only minor points and suggestions, overall it was an enjoyable and very comfortable place to stay.

Response from hide & sleep:

Hi Sally,Thank you for taking the time to complete a review. We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Pear Tree House and the owner always takes feedback seriously so thank you for your suggestions. Since it was first brought to the owners attention, they have been in search of a premium blind to match the top quality interior. Unfortunately given it needed fitting to the glass of the door it has taken a considerable amount of time to source and fit however, this is now in place. The glass chopping boards were an intentional choice with the hygiene of all guests in mind but the owner has now sharpened the knives and left a sharpener should guests need to use this in the future. Thank you again for your positive comments about Pear Tree House and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.Take careLouise Hide
