Northern England region
York makes an excellent jumping-off point for the marvellous countryside and unique attractions nearby.
There are literally dozens of stately homes and grand houses within striking distance of York, many of them open to the public. One of the most famous of these is Castle Howard, known to millions of television fans as the location for 'Brideshead Revisited'.
The scenic and welcoming North York Moors, Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire Wolds and Yorkshire Coast are all just a short drive away.
And don't forget that North Yorkshire was recently voted the most beautiful county in England!
York has an amazing array of things to see and do. The ancient walled city offers more attractions per square mile than any other destination in the UK. York is one of Europe's largest pedestrian zones and you're never more than a short walk from one of York's awe inspiring sights or attractions.
Whether you are a first time or regular visitor, couple or family, there's a myriad of fascinating layers to discover throughout this beautiful and thriving city. Explore York's Roman, Viking, and Medieval heritage plus a wealth of attractions like the iconic York Minster, JORVIK, the National Railway Museum, Castle Museum and Clifford's Tower.
Perfect for your UK holiday, York offers unique surroundings and a warm ambience where you can enjoy a vibrant café culture or delightful street performance. Perhaps sip a refreshing drink at one of the stylish riverside bars or many heritage taverns.

Stonegate retreat was fantastic! It was in a perfect location, close to all attractions, yet away from the street so quiet for sleeping. Catherine was great, incredibly welcoming, allowing us to check in early and leave late. Having the parking permit was also great. The apartment was incredibly clean and bright with an excellent view of the Minster, one of the best places we have stayed on our 8 week tour of Europe.

"Fabulous apartment in excellent location!"
We had a great weekend in this beautiful, comfortable and well equipped apartment. Catherine was most welcoming and has made sure that everything is of a very high standard. The apartment is extremely well situated for exploring York on foot (although a parking permit is available for visitors) and provides a relaxing, quiet haven when you return from the hustle and bustle of the city. The view of The Minster from the courtyard is certainly a 'wow factor' as it was totally unexpected when you walk in from the street! Part of this view can also be seen from the lounge (room and balcony), and the sunrise over The Minster on Sunday morning was a delight to see. We would definitely stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending Stonegate Retreat to family and friends.
