Year Purchased: 2007
About: My wife and I are both professionals and currently live in the USA. We have four boys and Blake Mews is our holiday home in the UK. We only get to use it a couple of weeks per year so we hope you enjoy it!
Why York: An award winning small development in the heart of this historic city with views of York Minster. For overseas visitors, York is a great base from which to explore the UK with London and Edinburgh readily accessible by direct trains (just 2 hours to London).
Leave the car at home and enjoy a break in this lively city. Blake Mews is a modern town house that was developed to a high standard in 2007. The mews is safe and secure but in the center of town.
Linens etc. are provided. The kitchen is well equipped but with all of York's restaurants and bars so close at hand you may never use it.
Fantastic location for a weekend break or holiday with older children. Property sleeps 4 adults and 4 children in a bunk room.
