From York to Scarborough (a lively seaside town with attractive double bay and castle) is 40 miles (and takes about an hour by car). It is also accessible by bus and train. There are plenty of other appealing seaside destinations within reach, for a day trip including Flamborough Head, Robin Hood's Bay and Whitby.
The nearest airports are:
East Midlands airport (96 miles or 2hrs by car).
Leeds/Bradford airport (30 miles or 1hr by car).
Manchester airport (82 miles or 1hr 45m by car).
The airports are also accessible by bus and train. A car is not necessary for exploring York. Everything is nearby and accessible on foot. A car is useful, although not vital, for further afield sights such as the Yorkshire Dales or the coast.
York is ideally placed as a base to explore the beauty and tranquillity of Harrogate and the Yorkshire Dales (about a 2 hour drive) and the North York Moors National Park (approx 1.5 hours drive).
Local shops such as the supermarket, chemist and a wide selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants are all available within a few yards of Minster View. The majority of the sights of York are available within a 5 - 20 minute walk.

About Anna Ward and John Willer
Anna Ward and John Willer both have long links with Yorkshire. Anna was born in Hull and John has run marathons over pretty much all of it. We keep up our connection by spending some time every year here at Minster View in York. We really enjoy strolling round the city, we get to go to the cinema on the river on a near daily basis and we top up our marmite supplies. (If you're puzzled by the last point it's because we live in Granada in Spain the rest of the year.) For us, spending time between Granada and York is pretty much perfect - and we know how lucky we are...
Anna Ward and John Willer purchased this House in 2002
Why Anna Ward and John Willer chose York
What we love about Minster View is pretty much summed up in the name! We have views of York Minster from all of the rooms at the back of the house, which is lovely. I particularly like looking at the Minster when doing the washing up. (Don't worry - we also have a dishwasher.)
What makes this House unique
York is a great city for strolling, with everything easily accessible within a few minutes walk. And because we are right in the centre we can pop out, have a look around, and then nip back for a cup of tea….. Perfect. Gillygate has some great indie shops.
