You'd be hard pressed to find a better starting point for your special weekend in York than The Bishop's Retreat! This newly renovated townhouse is within easy walking distance of everything that's kept one of Britain's oldest cities so popular to this day, including Betty's Tea Rooms (550 yards), York Minster (900 yards) and the stunning nightlife of Micklegate (220 yards) with some of the UK's best clubs, bars and pubs. But when you grow tired of the crowds, this trendy property will be the perfect place to find rest and relaxation with the hens.

Amidst the stylish interior decor and the luxury furnishings you'll find a plasma TV to keep the ladies entertained between activities, as well as free WiFi so you can share your best snaps of this enviable property online (#nofilter required). There's private parking for anybody arriving by car, while York Central Station is only 9 minutes away on foot - so you won't be dragging your suitcases for miles when it's (sadly) time to leave.

The Bishop's Retreat has a gorgeous contemporary kitchen with all the latest appliances, so you'll have everything you need to rustle up a tasty breakfast for the girls after your late nights. Or if you really can't be fussed? Host your own Naked Brunch with a Private Chef to do the cooking and our Hunky Hens Hosts to do the serving! The choice really is yours.

This property is extremely popular, so why not send us your enquiry and check availability right away?
