Grays Court York is possibly the oldest continuously occupied house in the United Kingdom. Dating back in part to 1080 and commissioned by the first Norman Archbishop of York to provide the official residence for the Treasurers of York Minster, the house has an unrivalled history.
In 2005 the Dean & Chapter of York Minster made the decision to sell Grays Court. Unfortunately the building had become somewhat neglected and had an institutional feel, so in stepped John & Helen who immediately recognised the potential to breathe new life into the house as an exclusive retreat for discerning visitors. You can find it (with some difficulty!) nestled in the shadow of York Minster and the City Walls, and it’s true to say Grays Court is a true one-off – a country house in the heart of the city – just waiting to be discovered.
This is Emma during her bridal preparations in one of the stunning luxury bedrooms – perfect for such occasions.
