Lovely city centre apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Great communication with the owner & as a family of 4 with two young boys this apartment was perfect for us. We parked the car & didn't use it again for the rest of our 4 day break. The apartment is ideally located for York town centre, a short stroll across one of the bridges & you are in the lovely town centre. The apartment is superbly well equipped & the boys appreciated the 'smart' tv! It is comfortable & very quiet considering it is such a short distance from the centre of York.

We have booked this apartment again for a pre Christmas break & the boys are delighted to return!

Owner's Response: We bought the apartment to use as a family so we know that it works for guests with children! The Smart TV is a recent addition and my teenagers are not impressed that it's better than our TV at home! Not that you need to watch much TV in York - there is so much to do for all ages - but because everything is within a few minutes walk, it's possible to keep popping back for a spell of relaxation before going out to explore some more!

Terrific location for exploring York.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot for walking tours of York. We came by train and never wanted a car. It is about a ten minute walk from the train station. This is a perfect spot for a couple. We were four adults and it was fine, but a bit snug. The second bedroom is small. However, we were hardly ever in the apartment because there is so much to see. Almost everything is within a ten minute walk.

Lovely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in York and loved the apartment. In a quieter area of town but still with shops, bars and restaurants nearby and within easy walking distance to Minster, Shambles, etc. Good communication with the owner and lots of valuable information. Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to leave a review. We deliberately sought an apartment that was within easy walking distance of all attractions and amenities so I am pleased that you appreciated that. I look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Excellent location. Good facilities. Bring ear plugs

  • 4 of 5

Great location, a short walk from all York’s attractions and free, secure car parking too.

Beds v comfortable, kitchen v well equipped and nice lounge area with freeview tv and plenty of wet weather books / DVD’s etc if required (we didn’t need them - too much to do in the city in the wet or dry).

The walls are very thin and you do hear the door bell ringing even when not for this flat and people coming in etc. Generally v quiet but this was Easter weekend and so there was a lot of noise when neighbours came back late at night on Friday / Saturday (but only for a short period - quickly quietened down again).

Would we stay again? Absolutely

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am sorry that you experienced some disturbance during your stay. As you can see from many other reviews, our guests usually comment on the peace and quiet so I think you were very unfortunate! I am pleased though that it hasn't put you off considering another visit. I look forward to welcoming you back.

Scarborough 41 miles by car; also accessible by direct train

Whitby 50 miles


York is less than an hour away from Leeds Bradford airport and not much further from Teesside and Doncaster (Robin Hood) airports.

York is on the main East coast rail line and the railway station is only a few minutes walk from the apartment.

Travelling by car, York is easily accessible from the A1, north or south, with the apartment being just ten minutes drive away from the ring road. Once there, you will have little need for a car as the whole city is easily accessible by foot.


There is so much to see and do in York that you will easily occupy a whole week's stay without leaving the city.

If you crave even more history, the stately homes of Harewood House and Castle Howard are 25 miles and 15 respectively.

Should you wish to explore further afield, the North York Moors, Yorkshire Dales, and the beautiful Yorkshire coast can all be reached by car in an hour.

Further Details:

All the main supermarkets have high street outlets within 3 minutes' walk of the apartment.

You are spoilt for choice if you want to eat out, with cafes, restaurants and pubs every few yards making the city centre as lively by night as it is by day.

History lovers will love rambling around York's historic streets such as the Shambles and Stonegate, and delight in visits to the Castle Museum and the Yorkshire Museum as well as the Minster.

Arts lovers can fill their time with visits to York Theatre Royal, the Grand Opera House, the Barbican concert hall and York City art gallery, as well as the two city centre cinemas.

Fancy a break from the hustle and bustle of the historic and shopping areas? Then walk or take a cruise along the River Ouse or visit one of the city's two main parks - the 20-acres of Rowntree Park and the ten-acre botanical Museum gardens - both but a short stroll away from the apartment.
