About the property

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!

Lovely apartment close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for weekend (4 people) and loved it. The welcome was punctual, thorough and friendly. Everything you needed was there and there is loads of space. The view out over the Cathedral is wonderful. I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting York.

Fantastic flat, great location

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of four (two adults, two kids, 13 & 11 yrs) that stayed for three nights in early January 2017. The flat is in a great, quiet location, just outside of the walls (Monkbar) near York Minster and had also had car parking which was a bonus. It is a short walk to all the attractions in the city and there is Sainsbury's very close by to walk to. The flat itself was fantastic, homely, comfortable, good size and was even better than the pictures. There was a great view of York Minster from the living room which was great to look at whilst relaxing on the sofa. The flat was modern, clean and had everything we needed. Julia was great to deal with and although we didn't meet her, she had everything organised for us to get into the flat and made sure we settled in ok. The flat had free Wi-Fi with a good connection. There was even some provisions being milk in the fridge, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits. We loved York and wished we had a few more days, we certainly recommend this flat and would definitely stay again.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just perfect. Very smartly decorated , with everything you would need in the kitchen.

Very clean, and the manager of the apartment was very friendly and helpful.

Location couldn't be better, and it was very nice and quiet.

I would recommend this apartment, and would certainly like to stay here again.

Thank you Julia

Spotlessly clean and great location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in this lovely apartment, and it was beautifully clean and very welcoming. We stayed in January, but it was lovely and warm with plenty of hot water for bubble bath! The owner was brilliant and it was easy to book our stay. Secure parking outside is superb, and the two minute walk into city centre added to our enjoyment. Cannot fault this place. Everything we needed and I would recommend to anyone. We will definitely stay again. Thanks to Julia and Jim.

Excellent accommodation and location.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment, ideally situated within minutes of the Minster. Set in the grounds of a former maternity hospital in a quiet and private complex, the apartment shares a quiet prvate garden. Private parking is an added bonus as was the supermarket 2 minutes walk away. The apartment is spotlessly clean with high quality furnishings and equipment, everything is provided for your needs. There was a warm friendly greeting from the caretaker who showed us round the apartment and explained the working of the equipment. Julia, the owner, was most helpful. The information she provided was just what was needed to make our stay so enjoyable. Definitely the place to stay in York. Thank you Julia.
