A holiday at The Cosy Duke provides guests with an authentic city break, close to the many attractions of this fascinating city. The property is situated within the city walls and looks out onto the medieval city walls which lead you on a circular walk, an ideal way to explore this beautiful area. The location provides a quiet retreat yet a 2 minute walk onto Micklegate to the bars and restaurants.
The little front private garden with a seating area on the patio is ideal for people watching, as visitors wander along the city wall above. Inside no expense has been spared in providing an indulgent welcome. Each room is gracefully furnished, with your comfort in mind. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and what a kitchen this is, with sweeping granite worktops, and copper topped dining table. The living room with two Chesterfield sofas encased in warm soft leather, is the perfect way to spend an evening after a busy day of exploring. Pop open a bottle of something special as you toast to an inspiring holiday, making memories with your closest loved ones. Each bedroom is exquisite, the furnishings are tactile and inviting, with high quality mattresses and bedding ensuring you wake up refreshed. Both the kingsize bedrooms have their own character and flare. Which will you choose? The four poster bed or the bed room with its own dressing table where you can pamper and preen ready for an evening at one of the many award winning restaurants or enjoy the night life at the nearby bars, clubs and live music venues. There is also a third single bedroom, which is more compact but equally well presented and cosy. The bathroom is sure to wow with its fabulous slipper bath, inviting you to wind down in an evening beneath a thick layer of bubbles as you self-indulge.
In keeping with the history, the property has been beautifully renovated to combine the traditional with the contemporary.
