An extraordinary place to stay. With nothing other than the chiming of the Minster bells to be heard from this three-storey, Georgian terraced house where generations of Minster clergy lived and contemplated.
2 Precentor’s Court was relinquished by the church in 2013 and the Cain’s have pulled-off a clever renovation combining the building’s old ecclesiastical charm with modern, uncluttered liveability, quirky, fun and family-friendly touches.
Exploring the city on foot is easy from here. Climb to the top of one of the finest medieval buildings in Europe, walk nearly three miles of city walls, stroll the cobbled Shambles, dip into designer and artisan shops, trendy cafes, tea shops and restaurants. There’s off-site parking if you do bring the car, maybe to head for the wilds of the North York Moors National Park and on to the coast.
