Apartment in York City Centre, Yorkshire, England - Minster views from lounge.

This sunny, light and modern second floor apartment, ideal for all times of year, even in winter thanks to York's calendar of interesting seasonal events, is located in a purpose built block with secure gated parking. Situated at the head of a quiet cul-de-sac, it offers stunning views of the Minster and is less than 50 metres to the city walls and Monlbar.

The property is finished to a high standard and comprises two bedrooms; one double, one twin, a spacious lounge and well equipped kitchen /dining room to seat 4. Easy to use electric heating in every room. Furniture, beds and bedding are all of an excellent quality to ensure a comfortable stay. Towels,tea towels and other basic kitchen necessities plus a welcome pack are also provided in the price. For further requirements a Sainsburys store is tucked away 50 metres from the apartment.

A "meet & greet" service is offered alongside an information pack containing maps, guides, venues and up-to-date current events for you to make the most of your visit.

The lounge looks onto an enclosed communal garden with seating and covered dining area plus a sheltered cycle store for the more energetic visitor.

York is a surprisingly compact city and most major attractions; river walks and cruises, museums, Minster, shops and restaurants are all within easy walking distance of the apartment. The railway station can be reached on foot in around 20 minutes and the Railway museum is close by.

For people wishing to travel further afield by car or public transport, North Yorkshire offers a varied range of tourist attractions within an hour's drive, such as; spectacular coastline and beaches, historic houses and picturesque villages, all set in beautiful unspoilt countryside, even a nostalgic trip on the North Yorkshire Moors steam railway to Whitby for their famous fish and chips!

It was a wonderful place to stay and close to everything.

It was beautiful and well equipped. There was a grocery store just a 5 minute walk away. Beautiful garden area and surroundings as well. Owner and caretaker were welcoming and wonderful to work with. We would definitely recommend this venue to everyone.

Great apartment and excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was very well presented, contained everything one could need, including milk in the fridge on arrival, biscuits/tea/coffee, and extremely well situated to the main part of York. The owners provided outstanding service and excellent information on the apartment and York . I will highly recommend to family and friends.

Amazing Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing find on VRBO/HomeAway. The location cannot be beaten. It is walking distance to everything in York. No car is necessary, except for going further afield. There is plenty of beautiful sights to see in North Yorkshire.

The flat itself is first class all the way. Decorated with high standards in mind. It was very comfortable with everything one might need at hand. The front room has a stellar view of York Minster; especially at sunset.

Having gated parking gave piece of mind. Parking in York is so limited but we had a space to come to whenever we returned.

Prior to the stay, we had excellent communication with owner Julia, who made certain things were ready upon our arrival. When we did arrive we received a warm welcome from Jim and Julia, who introduced us to our temporary abode.

If the need arises, I would most definitely stay at this property again in the future. In addition, I would recommend this to my friends and family.

Top notch five star accommodation!
