Guy Fawkes Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for the 1st week in November. The owner could not have been more helpful with the information regarding both the flat & the area. Everything was just as he described & on bonfire night the houseboat opposite held a firework display on the green shown in the picture. We were able to stand at the juliet balcony & watch a fantastic private display. We had a brilliant week at this apartment & the City of York & I would recommend it to anyone wanting a clean, comfortable & realistically priced property.

Special interest holidays:

The City of York lies at the very heart of Yorkshire once England’s largest county with the most geographically diverse landscape in all of England. From wild windswept crags and moors, high coastal chalk cliff tops to long sandy beaches, beautifully wooded dales and National Forests & Parks.

The stately home of Castle Howard is just north of York, often described as one of the grandest private residences in Britain, still home to the family of Catherine Howard, the second of Henry Vlll's wives. As well as being open to the public most times of the year, holds its own classical music festivals in its magnificent grounds.

A little further away, 45 miles to the east of York, an hour by car, are the seaside towns of Scarborough, Bridlington or if a quieter old world charm is preferred, to the north east across the North Yorkshire Moors lay the wonderfully peaceful coastal fishing villages of Runswick Bay, Staithes and Robin Hoods Bay neatly nestled beneath high towering cliffs.


Airport: Leeds Bradford 45 km

Ferry Hull: 50 km

Train station: York 4 km

Further Details:

Along the same section of coast is the old whaling town of Whitby, home of Captain Cook and where two of his ships the Endeavour and Resolution were built. Whitby sits on the estuary of the river Esk and is dominated by the cliff top remains of its 7th century Abbey and nearby St Mary's Church and seafarers’ graveyard dating back to the 1100's. Walking around these gravestones beneath the Gothic ruin it’s not surprising that this is where the story of Dracula begins and was originally penned.

Approximately 25 miles to the west of York are the market towns of Harrogate and Skipton gateway to the Yorkshire Dales and Bronte country. Skipton lies at the centre of the19th century industrial revolutions navigation canal system, where visitors can take a river trip on some of the well preserved and beautifully painted canal boats.

There are also steam railways, heritage trails and even deep underground limestone cave systems to visit. For the literary minded, visit Howarth, 800 ft up in the Pennines where the Parsonage home of Emily and Charlotte Bronte is located and is open to the public most times of the year.

Yorkshire possesses a multitude of picturesque towns and villages, medieval castles, battlefields as well as grand stately homes to visit and the City of York is and excellent city to choose as a base to explore this very diverse county.

Evening attractions; dine at one of the many fine restaurants’ close by. All within easy walking distance and all offer a diverse array of cuisine from exotic Asian or Arabic to Italian or Mexican, or enjoy a quiet sundowner or traditional fare at one of the riverside Bistro's or ‘Ye Olde English’ riverside pubs. For night owls there are spooky Ghost walks or visit the Theatre, or see whats on at the Opera House and of course there are Nightclubs too.

Events / festivals; The York Mystery plays - held every four years in the ruins of St Mary's Abbey; The Viking Festival, Ebor Race Week and much more.
