Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

Key Info
  • Not suitable for children
  • No pets allowed
  • Car not necessary
  • Nearest beach 70km

This luxury apartment has everything you need to enjoy your stay in York. Fine furnishings and contemporary design throughout with Egyptian cotton bedlinen, hand made mattress and a choice of goosedown or non-allergic bedding. All the best of a hotel suite with total privacy and the freedom to do everything in your own time.

So you don't have to bring loads of extra shopping, we fill the fridge with milk, bread, butter, eggs and drinks. The store cupboard include treats, a wide range of teas & coffees, cereals, chocolate biscuits and all the jams, marmalades, condiments and sauces you may need. No need to bring any extra household supplies either, as we provide spares of everything...from binliners and paper towels to detergent and tumble dry sheets. In the bathroom there are gorgeous indulgent soaps, lots of soft towels, extra loo rolls and plenty of hot water. There are no hidden charges. All is included for you to use and enjoy.

You have a choice of fabulous restaurants for all budgets within a few minutes walk but the modern kitchen is fully equipped if you prefer to self-cater. There are two sofas as we reckon one doesn't give you enough space to stretch out and relax. For a quiet evening in there is the TV/DVD/CD and a choice of books, magazines, music and films.

Just get yourselves here and you can start to unwind!

Northern England region

Yorkshire's award winning gardens and parks are some of the finest in England, from the mirror-like pools of Studley Royal water garden at Fountains Abbey to the riot of architectural features at Castle Howard. Yorkshire is still designing and planting some of Europe's most exciting new gardens such as the Gardens at Scampston, nr Malton, winner of the White Rose Awards Small Visitor Attraction of the Year. Excellent tea shop there too!

Yorkshire offers a whole world of sport for you to enjoy. From headline grabbing rugby league, union and football to top class cricket, from thrilling horse races to great golf courses, you'll find it all here. Regarded as one of the UK's premier cycling cities, York is the ideal base for cycling holidays in the area. So whether you want to watch sport, or get involved, it is all happening in Yorkshire.


York is renowned for its Roman, Viking, and Medieval heritage and wealth of attractions like York Minster, Fairfax House, Clifford's Tower, The Treasurer's House and the Jorvik Centre. Broaden your mind at our world class museums, theatres and cinemas, visit a host of magnificent events, take guided walks and enjoy boat trips on the River Ouse....there is something to keep you entertained every day of your stay.

Everything you need is available within walking distance from excellent neighbourhood shops, markets and favourite stores. Wondering what else you can do in York? Then walk a section of the ancient walls, wander down the Shambles and Stonegate, enjoy the city's vibrant café culture then simply watch the world go by while sipping a drink at a riverside bar or indulging in afternoon tea at Bettys ...and just relax.
