Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
York is consistently voted one of the best places to visit in the UK. Staying in this newly fitted (2014) luxury city centre apartment allows you the opportunity to experience everything the city has to offer – on your doorstep. Only yards from the famous Minster and Bar Walls, the apartment is situated in a street full of cafes and restaurants, delis and independent, quirky shops.
The spacious living room, with solid wood floor, has a very comfortable leather sofa plus two easy chairs which convert to single beds if needed so that the apartment in total could accommodate 4 people. Whilst there is full central heating, a wall mounted electric fire offers a pleasant focal point. There is a new flat-screen TV and free wifi which extends to the whole property.
The kitchen leads from the living room and is fully equipped with a high-quality ceramic hob and electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, washer drier, fridge, toaster and kettle. It also contains a dining table and four chairs.
The carpeted bedroom has a hotel quality super-king size bed which can be offered as two full size singles if required. The bedding is Egyptian cotton. There is plenty of drawer and wardrobe space and a second flat-screen TV with dvd is also provided along with a hairdryer.
The shower room is fully tiled with a walk in shower, toilet, basin and a heated towel rail. Plenty of large, fluffy white towels are included in the rental and there is space to store your toiletries.
There is a garage for a medium sized car.
To welcome you to York, we provide a bottle of wine, a loaf of bread, tea, coffee, sugar and milk.
York has a compact pedestrianised centre ideal for exploring on foot. The apartment is within very easy walking distance of the rail station and all central attractions.
