14 Cloisters Walk is tucked away in a quiet cul- de - sac near Monk Bar. This comfortable accommodation is convenient for the many attractions on offer in York. There is a Sainsbury's supermarket close by, very handy for the barbecue in the secluded, secure rear garden. There is plenty of space under cover at the side of the house for bicycles. Private parking for 2 cars just outside the property is included as is WiFi and broadband internet connection.

Top marks across the board.
Over the years we have rented other houses in York and although we have been satisfied with them all 14 Cloisters Walk is the best by far. We have now taken this beautiful and cosy house several times and look forward to many more visits.
Perfect holiday home
We have returned for several years now. Have always had a great time. The house is spotless, well equipped and convenient for the City. Dawn is a great hostess and the welcome pack gets better every year!
“Dearest Sandra, David and Keri, Thank you so very much for your lovely Review – it means such a lot to me that my guests are kind enough to spare their precious time to get back in touch especially over the busy Festive Period. It is always a real treat for me to see you all, especially at Christmas, and to welcome you back. After all, because you have been coming for so long you have become part of my ever extended Family Hee Hee. I love getting all the Christmas Decorations out and to “get my twinklie lights on for the Harts” as I know Christmas means a visit from you my lovelies. I am thrilled that you enjoyed my Welcome Pack as I always try and get you your favourite mince pies from Thomas the Bakers and never forgetting the scrummie pork pie this year from the Little Sausage and Pie Shop on the corner of The Shambles – I didn’t get a chance to taste mine as Trevor ate it all!!! Well, it is Christmas after all ,………. You take good care of yourselves my lovelies, and each other, and I wish you all every happiness for the New Year in 2019. My very warmest and sincerest regards Dawn Lacy x”
We’re totally hooked!!
This is our 2nd stay (my 3rd!) at Dawn’s “little house”, and it was as ever, absolutely wonderful. Warm and comfortable, with everything we needed, it was perfect accommodation in a perfect location. We’ve been coming to York for several years and this is by far the best place we’ve stayed in.
Dawn remains a glorious hostess, and surpasses herself in everything she does to make our stay perfect. The welcome pack had to be seen to be believed...in fact I had to send a picture to my sister! We didn’t have to do much shopping, that’s for sure!
The first thing I did when we got home was to book next November’s holiday in no 14! Thanks Dawn, we look forward to seeing you next year! X
Dear Jayne and Jim, It was so lovely to see you both again (as always) and of course Thank You so very much indeed for your lovely Review and kind comments. It really does mean such a great deal to me as I appreciate, only too well, the time and effort it takes once you return home getting back into the swing of things there. I just try to give all of my guests a “Home from Home” experience (with a sprinkling of “Yorkshire” magic) whilst on holiday and yes I am indeed very lucky to have my Little House in the location that it is as the delights and sites of the York City Centre are just a couple of steps just around the corner. I am so very pleased that you both saw all the Christmas Lights of York – they’re quite magical aren’t they – not to mention the Bar Walls all lit up looking simply superb. In addition, the brilliant St Nicholas Christmas Fair incorporating Thor’s Tipi (which I absolutely love getting all nice and cozy in there with my Hot Chocolate Brandy), Then there’s all the Festive Food Stalls and Local Market etc etc. We are very lucky here in York. A huge big Thank You for booking again with me for next year – you’ll have to let me know what cake you would like me to bake for you. Until then you take good care of yourselves and each other. My very warmest and fondest regards Dawn Lacy x”
Location excellent, property wonderful, and the welcome exceptional. Book it now!
This end terrace house just outside Monks Bar is serviced and prepared with care. Two parking places are available (very much worth having in York!) and the house itself has everything you need for a self-catering stay. There is easy walking access to York city centre and all its sights, and also restaurants, takeaways and grocery stores (a big Sainsburys is next door). The accommodation was spotless, in excellent decorative order, with comfortable beds and fluffy towels in the bathroom, all superb. The welcome from the owner was exceptional - the "goody pack" prepared for us was a magnificent banquet of Yorkshire delicacies; not just the usual bread/milk/tea/coffee but also a bottle of Prosecco (OK not Yorkshire), a fabulous York Shambles butcher's Pork Pie, and crisps and confectionery among many many others. Also Welsh Cakes (hmm). We were made to feel truly welcome, shown around, given full info on the property and a "help" phone number if required. Such attention is truly above the norm. Mrs L, you are an exceptional hostess, thank you.
Some points of interest:
As the kitchen equipment is comprehensive for foodies like us - brilliant - (e.g. I think I counted twelve chopping boards, four frying/sauté pans), we found there was limited cupboard space to store our own groceries;
The dining table only has three chairs which was OK for us, but the house does sleep four.
The house backs on to the York inner ring road, and despite double glazing inevitably the delivery lorries at 6.00a.m intrude if you are in the back bedroom - not much at the front.
These are niggle points. Bottom line: would we stay here again?; would we recommend this accommodation to friends and family?; Yes and Yes.
Fabulous stay. Thank you so much Mrs L - you are a wonderful hostess.
Second time staying at 14 Cloisters Walk.Prior to this visit had stayed in another in Cloisters Walk run by same company Inyork holidays as this was not free.This is by far best.Excellent host.Nothing too much trouble.Dawn even texted next day to ask if everything ok and to wish me happy birthday.Lovely touch(.Didn’t have any contact with owner in previous house so did feel isolated.)Very well kept house everything you could wish for.The welcome pack was outstanding.Thought we might come home few pounds heavier as lemon cake was delicious but we soon walked it off around York.Great location with free parking.
Thank you Dawn.
Friends on my return have enquired about this property as I was singing it’s praise.
“ Dear Jill and Norman, Awwwwww bless you both – thank you so very much for your lovely Review it is so very kind of you and I really do appreciate it. I am so very pleased that you have enjoyed your stay with us here in York and I am always thrilled to see returning guests like yourselves as you become part of my extended family. I try to give a welcoming “Home from Home” experience and of course always a Hearty Yorkshire Welcome which would never be complete, in my opinion, if a cake wasn’t involved ?. I am extremely lucky in that I live locally to my Little House so I am always in the area which not only allows me to cover all my own Meet and Greets (no matter what time of day or night) but I think it’s always nice that my guests know that I’m always available to pop by, or for them to telephone or text if I’m needed. Many many thanks again for choosing my Little House for your holidays and I do so hope to see you both again soon in the not too distant future – another Lemon Cake will be freshly baked to welcome you back. My very warmest and fond regards, Dawn Lacy x”
Home from home. Outstanding!
This 2 bedroom property is immaculate and ideally situated to enjoy a city break. The welcome was warm and inviting including an amazingly delicious gift of goodies to enjoy on arrival. The property has everything you could need for a self-catering break and the supermarket is literally a few hundred yards away. Whether you've come for the sightseeing, historic places or the shopping you are in short walking distance to all and yet it is a quiet retreat with secluded barbeque area. We had a wonderful short break and highly recommend it to others.
“ Dear Joan, Thank you so very much indeed for your lovely Review and I am so very pleased that you both enjoyed your stay with us here in York and in my Little House. I do try and give all my guests (both new and returning) a hearty and genuine Yorkshire Welcome and that simply would not be complete without the odd treat or two and a freshly baked home-made cake. I do so hope that you come visit again and enjoy the many delights that York has to offer but until then, I wish you both all the very very best. Sending you both my warmest regards, Dawn Lacy x
