York Minster can be seen from the apartment and is just a few minutes walk away. Leading off are all the medieval streets such as Stonegate, Petergate and The Shambles ('gate' is the old Viking term for street) with their wonderful shops and restaurants. The York Art Gallery and Theatre Royal are just a few metres away. Photos of shops and attractions shown were taken within a few minutes walk of the apartment. There are lots more but not shown on this site!

There is a luxury bedroom with a king sized bed, hand painted furniture and original water colour paintings on the walls. A fold out single bed is available, suitable for a child. Baby Chair and travel cot also available. Bedding and towels are freshly laundered for each guest.

About Lucy Stevenson

My name is Lucy and I am the propery manager for the Gillygate flat. If you have any queries please don't hesitate to get in touch with me!

Lucy Stevenson purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Lucy Stevenson chose York

So close to the tourist centre it makes a very attractive holiday let with everything within strolling distance (except the Railway Museum but that is walkable). I know how important it is when visiting a City like this to have restaurants, theatre and bars nearby for the evenings and the shops and historic attractions close during the day.

What makes this apartment unique

It's self-catering accommodation as close to the Centre as possible. Hotels near the Centre tend to be expensive. There is a local Sainsbury's a few yards away if you are self catering.

Its also close to St John's University for those visiting their children there.

You can hear the Minster Bells!

Our stay in York met all of our expectations and more. The flat was clean and well appointed and close to everything. We could return to the flat for a rest and set off again. We loved the floral greeting!

Comfortable apartment in the heart of York making it perfect for seeing all that York has to offer.

  • 5 of 5

We would thoroughly recommend it. It was good to have a parking space. We left the car there as we didn't need to use it at all. You can easily walk to all the city sights from the apartment. You can pop back at lunch time, relax and then head out again. Also, nice Italian restaurant just across the road for the evening. Brilliant!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

What a great find. Couldn’t fault this property for our short stay. Immaculate inside, photos don’t do it justice. A proper home from Home, beautifully furnished and stocked with everything you need. We appreciated the tea, filter coffee and milk. We had planned to eat out but decided to return on the 1st night and cook in as we looked forward to settling in to the comfy lounge after a day seeing the sights

Great host, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment is ideally situated for exploring York and is only minutes away from York Minster. Plenty Pubs and Restaurants in the immediate vicinity including a lovely Italian across the Road, Mamma Mia’s is well worth a visit. With the added bonus of allocated parking to the rear this is the perfect location. Some reviews mention traffic noise but as the bedroom is to the rear of the property this really isn’t a problem. The bottle of wine and fresh flowers were much appreciated. We are looking forward to returning later in the year.

This flat is in the historical and tourist Centre of York. It is a few minutes walk to the famous York Minster (which can be seen from the flat)and many other must see historical places. Also the centre is full of shops. An ideal place to visit York as all the attractions are within walking distance. A few meters from the flat is the pedestrianised tourist area of York. Photos shown are of places withing a ten minutes walk or less. Some are very close. Personal parking space by the flat - so no parking costs. (do not use the post code shown on this site, please use YO30 7BR) 1.5km from the station but suggest a short taxi ride with luggage.
