We were truly amazed when we walked into our apartment. Large, sunny rooms. Great kitchen, living room and bath. Kitchen included coffee, tea, eggs, bread, butter, preserves, milk, and a bag of ice in the freezer. Within easy walking distance to the town of York which includes numerous pubs and excellent restaurants. Shaun (owner) will pick up his visitors from the train station if requested in advance. Beautiful landscaped yard with a bowling green 2 doors down the street. York served as a Roman provincial capital in A.D. 71 and capital of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria after the fall of Rome. Henry VIII used the city's cathedral (called Minster which is an Anglo-Saxon term) as northern headquarters of his Anglican Church. The Minster has more original medieval glass than rest of England's churches combined. Some artifacts in the Minster date to A.D. 39. We attended the Evensong at the Minster where the Dean of the cathedral greeted everyone and the male choir along with the organist produced phenomenal music in candlelight. Day before we left the UK I read in the paper that the Dean of the Minster will become the first female bishop in the Anglican Church. Hope to return to York in this lifetime!
