Meeting Friends
We enjoyed our short stay. Room was compact but everything very clean and nicely presented. Loved the wallpaper. Breakfast of fresh fruit yoghurt orange juice and brown toast and preserves was perfect for us. Good quality and nice to have it brought to the room. 10 minutes walk to the river/old town centre. Good value for money and friendly staff. Would recommend.

A Gem
Small, gorgeous guest house with a 5 star heart. Don\'t even bother looking anywhere else for your stay in York, Holmlea is as good as it gets. Parking right outside the house, (I stayed for five nights and never had a problem getting a parking space). Breakfast served in the room and delightful owners. I was working away from home Smd looked forward to returning \'home\' to Holmlea every day.

Clifford`s Tower
North Yorkshire
In 1068, William the Conqueror built a motte-and-bailey castle on the present site of Cliffords Tower in York, to strengthen his military presence in the north. The tower is now the most prominant remaining part of the castle, which was rebuilt in stone in the 13th century. Today, views from the Tower over York show why it played such a key role in the control of northern England.

York Minster - Landmark

York Minster - Landmark

Distance 0.97 miles (1.55 km)
The magnificent Cathedral in York, known as York Minster is the largest Gothic Cathedral in Northern Europe, renowned for containing the largest collection of medieval stained glass in England. Built in the Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular styles it is a pure classic of the period. Five hundred and eighteen feet in length, it is two hundred and forty one feet wide at the transept and its central tower rises one hundred and ninety eight feet making it the largest lantern tower in Britain. Bede records that a small wooden chapel was built on this site in 627 A.D. for the baptism of Edwin, king of Northumbria. Edwin's successor Oswald enclosed the chapel in stone and dedicated it to St. Peter, as the Cathedral in York has been ever since.
