Blake Mews is a beautiful house in the perfect location. Hidden behind a secret door in the centre of historic York, it is spacious, clean and full of all the modern amenities and home comforts you could wish for. You can see York Minster from the bed in the main bedroom and the roof terrace outside, and listen to the bells - don't worry, not at night. You are seconds away from the streets of the city with all its shops, bars, restaurants, museums and historic sights and, most importantly, a short stroll from Betty's Tea Rooms. There is plenty to do in the city for grown ups and kids, but drive out and you'll find fabulous countryside, country houses and the ruins of castles and abbeys. My family and I spent a very lovely few days at Blake Mews celebrating a birthday with a zero in it. It softened the blow magnificently.
