... After a 13hr flight we arrive at Gatwick Airport, pick up our PRIORITY luggage (lucky luggage) for our onward journey to York; not bad timing as we landed at Gatwick at 7am and were at home dead on 11am.



FINALLY, A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THAT TOOK THE TIME TO READ OUR BLOG AND ESPECIALLY TO THOSE POSTING COMMENTS; WE HOPE YOU ENJOYED ...

A Walk, A Church, A Pub

... and propagate.

The last leg of our journey was described as a very steep slope - not an understatement! After following a very narrow path for at least a mile, we had a steep descent to a rapidly flowing stream which we had to cross. Then looked up to see the path continued almost straight up. What a feeling of accomplishment to climb it!

Our reward, once again, was another terrific pub ...

Another Thursday arrived and we realized it was time to get back to our walks. It was Peter's turn to plan where we would go. After about a 45 minute drive towards Helmsley, we arrived at our destination - a walk on the moorland at ArdenHawnby Estate.

Weatherwise, the day looked promising. Temperatures were moderate and the skies were blue. England has had a very rainy winter and we were prepared ...

The final day.

We drove back to the airport via a winding mountain road that took us up through majestic pine forests right over a saddle of Table Mountain, and led down to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. The rest was pure horror - motorways, wrong turnings, car drop-off, endless sitting around in the departures terminal...but now we're jetting towards Paris, be home in about 12 ...

Jorvik Viking Centre

... and are slowly taken through a reenactment of an old Viking village, while there is a running commentary on the scenery from the speakers behind your head. There were animated mannequin type Viking villagers all through the exhibition who were going through their daily businesses, and some of them even had a chat to the lady in the speaker! One of them had a face that was modeled on an actual Viking whose bones were found and digitally reconstructed. It was ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Warrens York

    Lovely place

    from

    I am currently staying at Warrens Hotel in York and I am writing this

    Relaxing, romantic break

    from

    Stayed at Warrens in York, booked a Four Poster room, arranged for a bottle of Champagne for arrival. We had a perfect weekend, possibly because I could leave the car in the car park and walk everywhere, most of the museums are within 10 minutes walk, restaurants and bars are closer.

    Lovely room, lovely breakfast surprisingly they have a bar and serve evening meals and snacks, but they dont seem to advertise it, we ate there the day we arrived and it was good.

    We really liked this place, bit of a find actually!

    Most surprising

    from

    What a find! Friendly, clean, accommodating and competatively priced.

    A Little Disappointed

    from

    We were just there over the Easter holiday. The hosts are very nice and accommodating and clearly they have a lot of work to do running this place themselves with a little help from family. However, Warren's Guest House was a little disappointing in that it was located further away from the city center than we would like to be. It was more than a 15-20 minute walk and we're fast walkers. At night (before the time change) it was a little scary to be on the streets and no one around or an occasional homeless person. The B&B room was okay nothing fancy. The one thing that was a bit of a surprise was that they are very frugle with their soap. They gave us a sample (tiny!) size piece of soap to use for both the sink (which was in the room) and the shower. When I asked for more soap we only got one extra little bar. The next day we went to Marks & Spencer and got a proper bar of soap. Maybe they assume you bring your own. The traditional English breakfast was ordinary nothing to rave about. There were no little extras or choices like muffins, or brown toast instead of white or maybe offer potatoes instead of beans once in awhile. We will probably try another place that is closer. One plus was they are close to Melton's Restaurant, which is a place to go for that wonderful dinner you want to have - expensive however. We also went to Blue Bicycle again another fabulous restaurant. For lunch we went to Melton's, Too (a partner of Melton's) and it too was good but much more informal and perfect for lunch.

    Flying visit.

    from

    We didnt intend staying over in York as we only came over for a days shopping but dropped on this lovely B&B quite by accident.

    The rooms are nicely decorated, clean and fresh, hosts very welcoming and the food was spot on. We will be back again, next time with more than a toilet bag for a longer stay.

    Thank you for a wonderful night.

    Loved the place!

    from

    We have had a wonderful short break at Warrens in York.

    We booked a Four Poster room, arranged for champagne and choclates for our arrival and had a fantastic 3 nights.

    Warrens is only a short walk from the City Centre some of the best restaurants are in the vicinity. The welcome was great, the ambienece was wonderful and we will be back at Christmas for another romantic break. Thank you!!

    Good place for a family stay

    from

    We enjoyed our recent stay at the Warren's guesthouse. My family of 4 was very comfortable in their family room which had a double bed and 2 singles. The guesthouse was very convenient for walking into York city center. We would return to Warren's.

    Simply the best

    from

    We had a beautiful stay. Warrens is decorated to the highest standard, there is an Oak panelled reception and lounge area, leading on to a large and bright conservatory where we ate breakfast. Our room was well appointed with four poster bed and views toward the Minster. We were very suprised at what we got for our money...we have paid a great deal more at other hotels and received a lot less for our money...we will be back!!

    Warrens great place great welcome great breakfast

    from

    We stayed at the Warrens last year and had the best time ever. We booked for 2 days and stayed for 5 days. Beautiful Old City, ancient walls, quaint museums, very good restaurants...surprisingly for England. Warrens' rooms were large and comfortable, breakfast is served in a beautiful conservatory and the sitting room is wood pannelled. It is quieter than other most hotels this close to the city (5mins walk to the walls and museums) we paid 55 for our room and it was better than some places we have paid double that price. Richard and Jenny know all the City's history, and what they dont know Richard makes up. Simply wonderfull.

    The warmest welcome

    from

    We have had a wonderfull time at Warrens in York. Our hosts Richard and Jenny were great. They told us the best places to visit in the few days we were there. Our room was the biggest we have stayed in in the UK...(most British Guest House rooms are much smaller than at home). We were recommended by friends who stayed last year, freshly cooked breakfasts, a car park and 5 minutes walking distance to the City Center. It felt like a home from home!
