Boutique Cottages in York

Just wow! This is the city that has everything, whether you’re fascinated by history, a foodie, an art enthusiast, keen on shopping or simply looking to soak up the vibrant energy, this incredible place has in bucketful’s.

Set equidistant between Edinburgh and London, York’s history dates to before the Roman times and was also of importance during Viking occupation. Today, you can walk through the city and see its history through its architecture, from the 13th century city walls, York Minster that began life back in 1080 and its host of Medieval churches and houses.

Today, there’s so much to see and do, from the Railway Museum and JORVIK Viking Centre to the award-winning York Castle Museum and hair-raising York Dungeons. For something a little more sedate, a boat ride along the river is just lovely, whilst  wandering around the shops will satisfy the pickiest of shoppers.

Foodies won’t be disappointed either with a huge selection of eateries from Michelin-starred restaurants to charming tea rooms, whilst markets, breweries, pubs and independent food suppliers abound.
