Self catering accommodation in York, England

Whether you are in York for a romantic weekend away, a family holiday with the children, a short break with your best friends or flying in on a business trip from abroad, you will find 109 Nunnery Lane perfectly equipped to meet your every need.

Before arrival we will message you with instructions on how to access the property. We live just round the corner and are always on hand to answer any questions that you have about the house, the city and surrounding areas and then leave you in peace to enjoy your stay.

There is always something home made and freshly baked for you to enjoy, as well as everything you need to make yourself a nice cuppa as you settle in to your surroundings.


Our open plan lounge and kitchen diner is the perfect space to relax and unwind after a long journey or a busy day out exploring the city. The lounge area comes complete with two stylish comfy sofas, a 40” TV, a DVD player and a good supply of books and games to entertain yourself or the children. You can also play or stream music, using our Bluetune Roberts music system.

Cooking and Eating

Our kitchen is superbly equipped with an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave and a large Smeg fridge/ freezer. The dining table and chairs seat four and an original tiled fireplace completes the space. If you enjoy cooking you will find absolutely everything that you need to prepare a proper family meal or to roast your Christmas turkey. There are plenty of lovely wine glasses, coffee mugs and even brandy glasses for your goodnight snifter. You will find washing up liquid, dishcloths and tea-towels provided, so there’s no need to remember to bring them along or to go out shopping straight away when you arrive.

If you would prefer not to lift a finger in the kitchen during your stay, or would like to have a meal ready and waiting for you to pop into the oven after a long journey to York, we would be delighted to prepare some delicious food for you. We work with a local chef that prepares fresh food from scratch, such as fish pie, moussaka, lamb and apricot casserole, chicken and leek pie, spinach, mushroom and blue cheese lasagne and a whole host of other meat and vegetarian dishes. We can prepare fresh vegetables, crunchy salads and crusty bread, as well as delicious deserts like a blueberry and almond tart or a sticky toffee pudding.

Prices start at around £20 and provide two to three very generous portions. We’ll need to know what you would like us to prepare at least a week in advance of your stay. We can also provide delicious breakfast packs, which include homemade granola, home baked bread and croissants and homemade marmalade. You’ll find more information about prices and placing your food order on our Making a booking page.
