If you have any questions or require recommendations for the local area please just ask.

Lisa and Pete Sumners purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Lisa and Pete Sumners chose North Yorkshire

The property was chosen as its close to the city centre ( a 15/20 minute walk ) and also on a direct bus route. So you can get in and out of town quickly. It is close to all the local shops and has all you need for a nice short stay, and, its also close to some nice local restaurants. The local area is known as Fulford, it a nice and peaceful residential area between the University and Race course. You are a short bus ride away from the Designer Outlet shopping park which is on the outskirts of town.

What makes this apartment unique

Unlike a number of city centre flats, ours is much larger and comes with two bathrooms. Parking is easy with an allocated space. At night it is very quiet unlike some of the city centre apartments.

Lots of space and very clean, modern and comfortable. An easy walk into central York and a useful Sainsbury's Local very nearby. A very useful welcome/information pack from Lisa and Pete. We would recommend staying here. Thank you!

Really want to keep this one a secret!

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic apartment about 20 minutes walk from the centre of York along the riverside. Very well appointed, the apartment is in the centre and to the back of this modern building with a parking space allocated; a bonus in York. If you Google it, you will find it is near a light industrial estate - do not let this influence you - there isn't any noise from this at all. The apartment is spacious and light. The open plan living space is huge, with two settees (one a sofa bed) and a dining table that seats 6. The kitchen area is well appointed and there is a good sized fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Two very good sized bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room and the second next to the large bathroom.

A highly recommended apartment.

The apartment is very clean, spacious, very well equipped, walking distance into town. Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in York. Lovely apartment. It is clean, spacious, well equipped, walking distance to the University and into town about 20-30 minutes, either along the river or along the main road. It's near to shops etc. It is quiet, beds are comfortable and the owners are very accommodating. The welcome pack was absolutely ideal! Thank you. I would highly recommend the apartment and hope to revisit.

Walking distance of York

Cons (and I'm being picky here just to have something)

The electric hob was confusing at first

Thank you for a wonderful experience

Fabulous, spacious apartment, spotlessly clean and in an excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay at this excellent apartment. There was plenty of room for 5 adults and the sofa bed was an added bonus. The standards of furnishing are high and the property is very comfortable and warm. Having a car parking space was very useful although we enjoyed walking to most places. Having a Sainsbury's store around the corner was ideal for food shopping and they stock all the basic groceries you may require. We enjoyed an excellent meal at The Plough Inn in Fulford and we would highly recommend it.

York itself is a beautiful city with so many things to see and do. We particularly enjoyed walking the city walls, The Minster, The Treasurers House (National Trust), the National Train Museum, The Shambles and the Christmas Market. The highlight however was a visit to Castle Howard where the Christmas decorations have to be seen to be believed.

This was a pre- Christmas break for our family and being able to stay at this lovely apartment made it a special holiday.

Really good accommodation close to York's centre

This was a very comfortable spacious apartment close to the centre of town. A highlight was a morning walk into the centre along the nearby river.
