City Breaks to York without the Commotion…
York is a hugely visitor attraction on account of its stunning Gothic architecture which make the city a treat to walk around and its wide range of visitor attractions where you are sure to find something to keep people of all ages and interests entertained. In fact, York proudly claims to have the largest density of visitor attractions per square mile of any destination in the UK.
All of this makes the city itself a rather busy place which means that the inner city hotels tend not to be to everyone’s taste as then often preclude the opportunity to enjoy a little bit of peace and relaxation.
Thankfully, you can now combine the best of both worlds when you book a stay at the Kilnwick Percy Resort which is within easy driving reach of York city centre but embedded in the tranquil Yorkshire Wolds. This gives you the opportunity to take advantage of everything that York has to offer, whilst also getting the chance to enjoy a bit of quiet time.
