About Stephen & Christine

We moved to York in 2013 and live in Heworth with our little Shih tzu dog called Chester. Christine took early retirement from the AA (lucky so & so ) whilst Stephen is a qualified Chartered Certified Accountant. We both enjoy meeting and greeting our guests and always go the 'extra mile' to ensure that they enjoy a warm welcome and comfortable stay in our apartments. We treat all our guests as we ourselves would expect to be treated. We deliberately make our apartments like a 'home from home' so our guests can relax as soon as they walk through the door knowing that their holiday is going to be a memorable experience.

Stephen & Christine purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Stephen & Christine chose North Yorkshire

We holidayed in Talbot Court ourselves in 2011 and enjoyed our stay so much so that when the opportunity arose we bought Number 4 so we could offer the same wonderful experience to others. In 2014, we took the opportunity to acquire Number 2 which was the actual apartment we stayed in during 2011.

What makes this apartment unique

Talbot Court is in a fantastic location close to the Minster with stunning views of the 13th Century Holy Trinity Church.

It is only 2 mins walk to the Minster and the Shambles. All other York attractions are within easy reach.

Great hosts. Amazing location. Super comfortable accommodations.

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

I don't write many reviews, but I so thoroughly enjoyed myself that this was a must do.

Stephen & Christine's apartments are great getaways right in the middle of the action in York's ancient walled city. At the same time they are very quiet and secluded. Inside the apartment everything is calm and quiet, with ability to listen to the bells from the minster, and views of the quiet private garden. But cross the courtyard and exit the secure gate and you are right in the old part of town on Low Petergate, and just steps from all the other sites. Full scores for location.

The apartment itself is very cozy, with comfortable furnishings, and a fully equipped kitchen. Everything was very clean, fully functional, and as the listing states, very modern. The care the Stephen & Christine take with the property is very evident, without imposing with "your in my house artifacts".

As hosts, Stephen and Christine made sure the apartment was fully prepped, and even took time to acquire brochures and guides specific to my interests which was very thoughtful! They responded to enquiries quickly and clearly, and also reached out to make sure that all was well without being obtrusive at all.

I will not hesitate to stay with Stephen & Christine again, and heartily recommend their properties to others.

Thank you for a great stay!

Perfect retreat in York

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

My husband and I spent a weekend with our adult daughter in 4 Talbot Court and could not have had a better experience. The apartment is utterly central yet secluded, with lovely views to the choir school and the Minster. Stephen met us on arrival and was very welcoming. The apartment is a real home from home - in fact better than home as we do not have a dish-washer at home! The kitchen has all the necessary equipment, everywhere was spotlessly clean and there were so many extra touches that made our stay special, from macaroons to fluffy dressing gowns. We highly recommend the apartment and hope to return.

Clean and located within city walls

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Clean, quiet, and good water pressure all things were amply provided. Nice to enjoy the peace with the windows open with just the sounds of the doves and the laughing children if they are out for recess. Then walk out the front courtyard and the town is bustling with tourists but they leave by 6 PM and it's just you and the locals to enjoy pubs and restaurants. Short walk (five to fifteen min,) to everything in town. Could not ask for a better location.

Best UK rental experience ever

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Owners Stephen and Christine have created a superbly comfortable flat with every convenience a traveller could want. The generous continental breakfast provided was especially welcome after a trans-Atlantic flight. And they made it clear that any time I needed to contact them for any reason they would be available. The location right in the heart of York could not be better for exploring all the history that the city offers. Numerous restaurants are within minutes, as are a wide variety of high-end shops. Five stars is not enough for this rental!
