About Rachael


We're Rob and Rachel, owners of The Apartment in York.

We love York and lived there for a number of years before moving South for work. We still visit York regularly and as often as we can.

Our holiday apartment is perfect for our own needs and we try to make it perfect for others like us - who have similar requirements and tastes.

We always say 'we won't stay anywhere that doesn't look as comfortable as home'. Key things for us are secure parking, internet access, a safe and peaceful location and a comfortable nights sleep. Also the perfect holiday pad needs to be within very easy reach (on foot) of restaurants and shops.

Rachael purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Rachael chose North Yorkshire

We bought the apartment in 2006 having lived in Bishops Wharf several years previous to this.

We knew this was the perfect location so grabbed the opportunity when it came along.

The apartment has a real holiday feel about it with it's balcony and views toward the river.

It's the perfect holiday location - and it has parking!

What makes this apartment unique

The location of the apartment couldn't be better. It's close enough to get anywhere in central York on foot, yet far enough away for peace and quiet when not enjoying the sights.

All the local shops you need including a great butchers, delis, cafes and friendly pubs are just 2 minutes walk away.

Also on your doorstep is the entrance to the city wall, the riverside for lovely walks and Rowntree Park is about a 10 minute walk along the riverside.

The city centre is so close that if you want to shop and visit attractions all day, then come home to rest and walk into town later for dinner it's all very doable on foot.

And during your stay you can leave your car safely tucked up in the garage!

And, if you absolutely MUST bring work with you then free wifi access is all yours!

Clean, handy flat

  • 4 of 5

Lovely little flat in a great location. Very handy for the city centre without actually being right in the centre and therefore quite peaceful. Nice bonus to be able to see the river from the balcony and living room. Not too far from the station - we came by train and walked to the flat which took about 15 to 20 mins. Very clean. Very helpful housekeeper who let us in early as our train had arrived. Slightly annoying kitchen layout but as we didn't do much cooking, it wasn't a big issue. Would definitely return and would recommend.

I lived in York for 2 years about 20 years ago and it was wonderful to return.

Personally I love Betty's but some say it's overrated and have had bad service. We went 3 times on this trip! I really couldn't fault it. I also love Cafe Concerto opposite the Minster for excellent cakes in a more informal setting.

I went to a service in the Minster which I found very atmospheric and the choir blew me away. However, I realise it might not be everyone's cup of tea and in fact my husband and son climbed Clifford's Tower while I was there. All 3 of us enjoyed the Railway museum for different reasons.

We had an excellent weekend.
