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.

Our favourite staycation property in the whole of the U.K. We love it!

We've been to 14 Cloisters Walk several times and it feels like a home from home. It is very comfortable and Dawn leaves it thoroughly spotless and smelling lovely. The bathroom is sparkling! Dawn also, very generously, leaves edible goodies in the kitchen so you could have a nice cold lunch before you go out to choose a restaurant for dinner. The location is very good. There is a Sainsbury close by and the house is only a very short walk to the Minster. And then just a few minutes to our many favourite restaurants. Over the years we have stayed in some other properties but since finding Dawn's little house we can't think of going anywhere else. We love everything about it.

Christmas shopping in York

We come every year to York from Somerset for Christmas shopping. It is a wonderful place to shop with a great Christmas atmosphere. We have stayed at 14 Cloisters Walk for many years now. Dawn is a wonderful host making sure every comfort is catered for with a bubbly enthusiasm, always making us welcome with an ever surprising welcome pack. The house is in a perfect position just outside the city walls so that we can keep going back to drop off our shopping before going back for more. It is always in excellent condition and I think the only thing that could improve it is if it was snowing whilst we are there! We will be back again next year.

Mrs Dawn Lacy - Owner Replied:

“My dearest Sandra, David and Keri, thank you ever so much for your lovely review, you are too kind truly. It is always such a pleasure for me to welcome you all back year after year. We were trying to think last week weren’t we how long it actually has been and I have worked it out that you have been coming to visit my “Little House” for the last 6 years?!?! It must be the home baked cakes hee hee and my own mince pies this time as when I popped in to Thomas the Bakers for you this year they had sold out – how scandalous of them?!?! Hee Hee!!! Absolutely thrilled to bits that you have all enjoyed your stay here with us in York – not to mention all that Christmas Shopping you do well to pack it all in the car David. Next time I will endeavour to look out for and hire a snow machine for you so that you feel extra Christmassy. Here’s to welcoming you back for future years and festive visits to come and of course the biggest Yorkshire Group Hug goes without saying. Take good care of yourselves all of you and until we meet again I am sending you all my very bestest of wishes and my fondest regards, Dawn Lacy x x x “

This was our 3rd stay in Dawn’s lovely little house. Each time we’ve stayed longer! Dawn is completely wonderful, providing a mega bespoke welcome pack (Jim ‘needed’ to taste a Shambles pork pie and a Yorkshire curd tart)as well as a big Yorkshire Group Hug! It was great not having to go shopping because of all the yummy goodies, but when we did have to go, how easy with Sainsbury’s a few steps away. The house was warm, cozy and spotless. Dawn even got out a fleecy throw for extra coziness! The little house is in a perfect location, a short skip and a hop through the Monk Bar and into the city. We went to the Christmas market every day or evening, enjoying ambling through the crowds with a mulled wine. York is such a beautiful and vibrant city, especially this time of year with the Christmas market. It’s such a huge plus not having to worry about parking, with parking attached to the property. A big bonus in York! It meant we could explore other locations in North Yorkshire without fear of losing our spot! I had a James Herriot/Yorkshire Vet moment, so we had to go to Thirsk to see the Skeldale museum. Well worth it. All in all, it was a wonderful holiday in our home from home. Thanks lovely Dawn for everything you do to make it so special. It means so much to us both. We’ve been coming to York off and on for 30 years and your little house is by far the best we’ve ever stayed in. Fact!

Mrs Dawn Lacy - Owner Replied:

“My Dearest Jayne and Jim, Lovely to hear from you and thank you (from the bottom of my heart) for your wonderful review. I really do appreciate your kind words, not to mention I am absolutely thrilled to bits that you still enjoy coming to visit year after year. I am sure it’s because you like your Shambles Pork Pie too much Jim. Yes, I must admit we are very lucky indeed because at this time of year York is quite simply a festive delight to behold what with all the twinklie lights decorating all four Bar Walls; not to mention all the shops in town really do go out of their way to make everything look just oh so Christmasy (if there is such a word)?!?! And also, not forgetting all the culinary delights and treats that are on offer in the City itself and at our St Nicholas Christmas Fair AND our own local Shambles Market AND the local Mulled Wine which I have to say goes down an absolute treat it’s just too yummie scrummie for words don’t you think Jayne? Always an absolute pleasure to welcome you both back year after year. After all, you’re both like family now so there is no escaping my Yorkshire Tea Loaf for next time you come and stay. Take good care of yourselves and each other and I wish you both a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Sending my fondest regards with a Group Hug attached, Dawn Lacy x o x”

Mrs Dawn Lacy - Owner Replied:

“ Dear Mr & Mrs McLaughlin, thank you ever so much for such a lovely review and for your kind words. It is greatly appreciated. It was so lovely to meet you both and yes I must admit I was getting a little worried re your ETA but these things happen and you had undertaken such a mammoth journey all the way from Oban, Scotland, to come and stay in my Little House. I always try to do the best that I can for everyone who chooses to stay at 14 Cloisters Walk and I always aim to be there to meet and greet all of my guests whatever their time of arrival may be (be it day or night time) I will be there. And, of course, a good ole fashioned “Yorkshire Welcome” never goes a miss after such a long journey – and my chocolate cake always brightens anyone’s day (so I’ve been told). In my opinion, I think there is nothing worse than at the start of any holiday you arrive to find an empty house so it was my absolute pleasure to be there and to welcome you both to York, to Yorkshire and to my Little House. Lovely to meet you both. My kindest regards to the both of you, Dawn Lacy x x”

Just returned from a week in York in this cosy little house. Immaculately clean and an extremely pleasant owner. So handy to walk into the centre of York in less than five minutes and great to know that if you go out in the car you have TWO secure private car parking spaces to come back to. We had a more than generous welcome pack when we arrived which we thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you Dawn. Even though the house backs onto the ring road we slept in the front bedroom and we not disturbed once. We loved the immaculately-kept little garden where we had a couple of G&Ts. Would we stay here again? Most definitely.

Everything about Cloisters Walk was excellent, from the friendly welcome from Dawn to all the nice touches round the house. As everyone says, the welcome hamper is outstanding: freshly made cake, cream, fresh fruit, biscuits, two loaves of bread... more than enough to keep you in light breakfasts and snacks for your short stay in York. The location is fab too, a short walk takes you straight into the centre. One small criticism, the television could do with an update. It was a little temperamental and the menus/volume didn't always work, but it really is a minor point in such a lovely, welcoming home.

Mrs Dawn Lacy - Owner Replied:

“Dear Colette and Gareth, Thank you so very much for your wonderful Review. It was so very kind of you to take the time as I appreciate only too well that once you get back home, the demands of our day-to-day lives seem to take back control with earnest. It was so lovely to meet and welcome you both and I am so very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in my Little House – and the Wedding too sounded like you all had a simply magical and wonderful time. Lovely to hear you enjoyed the Welcome Pack – I do like to make my guests feel that they can relax the minute they arrive, with not having to even think about popping to the shops for tea, coffee, milk, bread & butter etc and I’m thrilled that you enjoyed my home baking. So very sorry to hear that the telly was playing up and I do so hope that it didn’t spoil your stay or inconvenience either of you too much and I thank you for bringing this matter to my attention. I have since checked and it was the batteries in the remote so I have replaced these and it appears to be working brilliantly now. These things happen and again please accept my sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused (I appreciate only too well there is nothing worse if you’re just about to settle down to a little bit of telly and it’s playing up). Thanking you both again for choosing to come and stay in my Little House it was lovely to meet you both and I do so hope that I get a chance to bake you a Chocolate Sponge Cake in the not too distant future. My kindest regards, Dawn Lacy x”

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!

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 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.

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.

Mrs Dawn Lacy Replied:

Thank you both so very much indeed for such a wonderful Review, it was an absolute delight for me to read. I am truly thrilled that, by the sound of things, you both thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us here in the Great City of York. I feel that, as a local girl myself, we are so very lucky to be able to enjoy all the delights and attractions that York has to offer, and it is my opinion that York has a little “special something” for absolutely everyone and of all ages too. I am also very pleased that you enjoyed your Welcome Pack – well, a visit to York and Yorkshire itself simply would not be complete without a couple of local delicacies and I must admit when I popped into town for your Pork Pie on the morning of your arrival : I simply had to get one too because they just smelt absolutely delish (no surprises there as they had just come fresh out of the oven). I usually bake a Cake for my guests but not everyone is a “sweet tooth” like myself so for the “savouries” amongst us, like your good selves, I pop into town and get a fresh Yorkshire Pork Pie from The Shambles which I feel and hope always goes down a real treat. With regards to your points of interest I welcome your comments and thank you very much indeed for taking the time to raise them with me. May I respond as detailed below: - I do apologise for the kitchen being a little too “over equipped”. In my defence, however, I must admit I cannot break this habit of mine that when I go shopping for my own home I am always constantly thinking of my Little House too; especially with regards to items such as chopping boards - as I do love them so myself and have I think 15 at home – (well now, they’re just so useful though aren’t they?) not to mention the pots and the pans etc. My humble apologies, but I cannot help myself because I feel that if it is good enough for home then my Little House needs one also. I fear I may be a potential hoarder in the making, so I will have to rethink and take stock the next time I go shopping for house items Hee Hee. You will be pleased to know Marek that I have taken your comments on board and completely agree with you with regards there being no room for my guests’ own groceries. An excellent point to make and a brilliant idea to which I thank you for alerting me to. I have now cleared one of the cupboards out completely (the one to the right of the microwave which has three shelves). Like you say, this then offers a complete and empty space for my guests’ own groceries should they need it. I can confirm that there are in fact four dining chairs. There are three in situ in the living room. The fourth dining chair is located in the under-stairs cupboard where the mini Guests’ Library is and where the Traditional Games Box is also stored there [so too are the house hoover(s), the toddlers’ highchair and the spare umbrellas’] – the storage space does go back quite considerably to say the very least (a real bonus, I feel, for a Little House). I have to admit though that the fourth chair can be very easily missed, but rest assured it is there. In addition, I also have located (again in the under-stairs cupboard) two adult sized bean bags which I tend to find goes down well with the children and teenagers that sometimes stay in my Little House (they like to get all cozy and cuddled in in front of the telly - a bit like mine do at home). I am so very sorry to hear your sleep was interfered with regarding the delivery lorries in the early hours. Unfortunately, my Little House does back on to the York Inner Ring Road and The Hilton Double-Tree Hotel is my next-door neighbour. The traffic noise is sometimes inevitable even with the double glazing. However, I do feel that this is a small price to pay when you think of the fantastic location Cloisters Walk is situated which is a stone’s throw away from your local corner shop Sainsbury’s, the Monkgate Area and Monkbar, the Minster and the vibrant City Centre of York itself. Finally, it was an absolute pleasure meeting you both and I am thrilled to hear that you would not only come back to York and chose to stay in my Little House but that you would recommend my property to your friends and family. That, to me, is an absolute treat to hear and I thank you for that from the bottom of my Yorkshire Heart. Take good care of each other until we meet again, hopefully in the not too distant future. Sending you both my warmest regards and all the very best, Dawn Lacy x”

We received a warm welcome from our host who contacted us prior to our visit to confirm arrival time and answer any questions we might have. We were even asked if we would like a home-made lemon or chocolate cake.It was delicious as were all the 'goodies' left for us and great to have not only the essentials such as bread, croissant, milk, tea and coffee but also cake, strawberries and cream, fudge and wine. The house was immaculate and details such as the tablets for the washing machine and baking foil very thoughtful. There was ample outside furniture and it was good to relax in the little garden after a day out. The beds were really comfortable. Location was excellent as it was only a few minutes walk to the wall and to the restaurants, pubs,shops and many attractions of York centre.

The house is immaculate with Christmas decorations and everything. The owner (Dawn) is always there to greet us (or in this case to say goodbye) and is so bubbly and lovely. We look forward to our Christmas visit every year.

Best self catering accommodation in York

Our favourite place to stay in York. The house has everything you need and is spotlessly clean. Close to centre and lots of fab restaurants. Sainsbury's is close by should you not want to eat out. Parking spaces a bonus. Fabulous warm welcome from the lovely Dawn and wonderful goodies and treats. Christmas decorations make it feel very homely. Have already booked another break.

This property is our new favourite.

We have stayed in several different properties in York and enjoyed them all but this one is our absolute favourite. Located in a cul-de-sac only just outside the city walls and just a step from Sainsbury for supplies it is a very short distance to reach excellent restaurants and pubs, shops, and York Minster. The house is really comfortable and stylishly decorated with an attractive, walled patio with barbecue. It was a bit cool and it snowed while we were there so we didn't need the patio. The deal breaker for my husband is the off road parking for two cars. Dawn, the owner, welcomed us on our arrival and provided a very generous selection of essential, edible goodies. Delish! Thank you, Dawn, we'll be back.

What can I say? Dawn was so welcoming and accommodating, with all manner of thoughtful touches to make our stay so wonderful. Thanks for all the yummies Dawn! We’ve finally finished the lemon sponge! The house was lovely, clean, warm and comfortable. The location couldn’t be better. We loved being able to walk out every day in the beautiful city of York, with the Xmas lights and the Xmas Fair up and running. Sampling all the mulled wine stalls was good too! Many thanks for such a fantastic holiday. We look forward to coming back.

Lovely, comfortable house in the most convenient location for everything York has to offer. Dawn is the best host and provides lots of treats and essentials to get your break off to a great start. Courtyard garden is a sun-trap even in autumn/winter and the car parking spaces are a welcome bonus too. We won’t stay anywhere else in York now.

Lovely welcome, with special touches

A phone call the day before we went, and a very friendly and thoughtful welcome from Dawn (who lived in the house for several years and obviously loves making it a special stay for guests), set us up for the holiday and made us feel at home. A really nice welcome pack including basics in the fridge and lots of special touches, being able to park our car earlier in the day, and the house very clean, pleasant and comfortable. Just outside the city walls meant we hardly needed to get the car out all week, and very convenient for Sainsbury's. Just a couple of things for potential guests to bear in mind: it is two double beds (no twin beds) (we had forgotten but as our daughter couldn't come this was fine for three of us); it's a lovely big bath so make sure the bath mat is in if you aren't very tall or keep it shallow! Also traffic and emergency vehicles can be a bit noisy outside the front bedroom at night with it being a main road, so put your better sleepers in this room... Altogether a really comfortable relaxing stay and one we would happily repeat if we stay in York again.

Absolutely perfect!

Simply could not have found a better place to stay in York. Dawn is a fantastic host , very friendly and very welcoming. We even had a goody bag of food on our arrival, which we did not expect, and Dawn was there to greet us. The house was, well, lovely. We could not find anything to criticise. well furnished, well maintained, and obviously well loved. 2 minutes from Sainsbury's, 5 minutes from the Minster, 10 minutes from the Shambles and 15 to 20 minutes from the National Railway Museum. What more could you want?

Die Unterkunft ist geschmackvoll und gemütlich eingerichtet - ein absoluter Wohlfühlfaktor. Auch der Empfang durch die Eigentümerin war äußerst herzlich. Ich kam Sonntag Abend an und sie hatte extra den Kühlschrank für mich gefüllt!!! So etwas habe ich in diesem Ausmaß noch nie erlebt. Die Wohnung liegt sehr zentral, gleich außerhalb des Stadttores "Monk Bar". Von dort kann man auf der Stadtmauer spazieren und dabei das Minster halb umrunden. De Wohnung hat zwei völlig gleichwertige Schlafzimmer in der 1. Etage und ein gemütliches Wohnzimmer im EG. Wunderbar ist auch der schöne Innenhof. Selbst im März habe ich ihn bei Sonnenschein genossen.

What a fantastic start to our holiday , our host Dawn had thoughtfully provided a fabulous hamper of goodies , even though there is a supermarket within walking distance . The property was 2 minutes away from York centre which meant no driving so the car was left in the private parking space next to the property. The property itself was in excellent condition with a beautiful courtyard . Dawn made it clear that we could contact her for anything if needed . A beautiful house in a good location we will definitely be returning .

It was brilliant to be able to park the car in the city centre to visit all the museums with the children, plus the Sainsburys over the road was very handy.

In a very quiet residential area despite the close proximity to the city. Very warm and cozy, equipped with everything you could possibly need. Wonderful garden area with seating and barbecue, which would be lovely in the warm weather. A wonderful warm welcome from the owner Mrs Lacy, who is very helpful & nothing is too much trouble. An extra special touch is the amazing welcome pack which was very much appreciated. We can't recommend this accommodation enough. Hope to return very soon. Thank you.

Dawn, the owner, met us and showed us around, she had tastefully decorated the house for Christmas and left us lots of goodies to enjoy , her attention to detail was great. Dawn was very attentive especially during the floods which York had over that period. The house was not in any danger from the floods but Dawn still came to make sure that we ok. The house itself was warm and comfortable, it is close to town - just a 10mins walk through Monkbar. We cannot recommend this house enough and would stay in again in an instant. This is one of the best houses we have ever stayed in.

Booking through Inyork holidays was really easy and quick, they responded very quickly to queries and put us in touch directly with the owner of the property. This is a great place to stay, just right next to the York city walls it's so close to everything and there is a supermarket just across the street for everything you might need. I stayed here with two friends for four nights and it was a great size for the three of us and had everything we needed. Dawn the owner was fabulous, she was there to meet us when we arrived and gave us loads of helpful tips about the place and about the city, made us feel right at home and even left us some biscuits and cake when we arrived! There was no problem changing our arrival time and she was really accommodating and easy to get in touch with before and during our stay. The house was super clean and really nicely decorated. There is private parking for two cars which was great as finding parking in York can be very difficult. Overall just a great place to stay and I would definitely stay here again!
