|Further details indoors|
This is a lovely quiet flat on the second (top) floor of a four storey building. It has a view of York minster and the city centre. As you walk through the door you walk into a light and carpeted hallway, to your left is the new bathroom, straight ahead the downstairs bedroom, to your right a doorway to the kitchen and dining area and then the stairs leading in two directions, one to the mezzanine bedroom and the other to the mezzanine lounge. The apartment is very light as it has two long windows about ten foot long which bring light to both floors. The apartment is very cosy and warm and has all that you would need for your stay. I have lived there myself and have made it very comfortable. The second floor of this building is mainly occupied by business people for second homes or retirement. You will have no noise from the street or noisy neighbors.

"Fantastic apartment in York's centre."
Hi Sandra,Just a personal thanks for the recent weekend's stay at your apartment. We have thoroughly enjoyed York this year and found our stay at your home fantastic. A great location and living … More

"Excellent apartment for all of York's attractions"
We stayed in this apartment for 2 weeks with our children aged 6 and 8 and we could not have hoped for better, more comfortable, or clean accommodation! We have two boys but there would have been no way they would have slept in the upstairs double bed together (early waking guaranteed!!) so Sandra very kindly made up a spare bed for us in the study-perfect! The mezzanine lay out is very quirky, and for us being able to hear when one of the boys woke up or moved out of his bed was good! However as others have said you do hear every little snore or movement in the upper bedroom from the lower bedroom! This is definitely not a criticism as it wasn't an issue for us, but handy to know if you're going with other couples! Plus you have the option of the study being made up! Having Sainsbury's literally 100 steps away was fantastic, no roads to cross or anything, just follow the path, plus absolutely no noise from it! We walked everywhere with the kids which was a huge bonus as no need to worry about parking in York, many a day was spent having picnic's in one of the many parks. We had fantastic weather for the full 2 weeks which definitely made our holiday even better. Can recommend Caesar's Italian just along from the apartment, very child friendly! All in all one of the best family holidays we've had and would not hesitate to stay in this apartment again, Sandra was most attentive from when we booked, to us leaving! Also recommend Creepy Crawlies/The Web play area for kids, we didn't see it advertised anywhere and just came across it, totally fabulous for kids and comfy loungers for exhausted parents!

"Attractive, convenient flat with awesome location!"
We agree with most of the other reviews. The location is fabulous! 1 block from city walls, close to shops and restaurants, and next door to Sanisburys supermarket. Quiet spot (except some construc… More
Update. Sainsbury's (our added bonus)) had a complete refit, but it is completed now and all is quiet again:) With regard to the mezzanine, most people absolutely love it!!! but for those who are unsure there is always the 3rd bedroom.

"Excellent stay, highly recommended."
I stayed here with my girlfriend and her parents for 4 nights during June. The apartment was spotless and very spacious. The Sainsbury's next to the building was really handy, and we used the kit… More

"Lovely place to stay in a great location"
A lovely place to stay in a beautiful old building and parking is a bonus for the centre of york.
It was very clean and tidy and had every amenity you would need for a self catering break away.
Everywhere in york is within easy walking distance.
We had a great time and would have loved to stay longer.
The security deposit was also returned extremely quickly.
One tip though and it certainly is not a criticism - it is best if you know your fellow travellers well as although we were staying with my parents - due to the mezzanine bedroom being located over their bed room below - if snoring is an issue - you may end up sleeping in the lounge as there is no getting away from any noises or if the light is put on in the room below, if you are a light sleeper it may wake you up. Although it certainly made for an entertaining time :)
I would not hesitate coming here again but for me personally just as a couple.
Short note- for those needing extra privacy there is of course the additional smaller private bedroom/office.

"Superb accommodation - return again & again!"
Truly marvellous accommodation. The apartment is warm, spacious & clean and very comfortable to stay in. The location is second to none being only a couple of minutes walk into the city centre of York, with gated parking and right next door to a Sainsbury's, so getting provisions is no problem at all.
This was our 4th visit and we never tire of it. Already planning our return. Sandra the owner is as welcoming, friendly and helpful as ever.
A highly recommended place to stay! The best we have found in York.

"Our stay at the property could be summed up in one word, superb."
The whole experience, from booking, being met by Sandra on arrival, to our very enjoyable stay in the property,can be summed up in one word ,superb. We stayed there during very cold weather and found the apartment to be really warm. The location is excellent,the centre of York just a short stroll away. Warm,comfortable,quiet,spacious,difficult to imagine how the weeks stay could have been better.Looking forward to returning very soon.

"First class accommodation."
This was a last minute decision to spend a few days in York. We knew exactly where the apartment was and its convenience to central York. The accommodation was first class, comfortable, quiet and a pleasure to stay in. Sandra, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful. Even the unexpected snow did not diminish our enjoyment and it was a delight to return each day to such a cosy apartment. We would certainly hope to return another year.

"Fabulous place to stay"
The apartment is very comfortable. Kitchen is modern but basic utensils if you wish to cook dinner or breakfast. 2 Tv's great for families. Downstairs shower is wonderful (I prefer showers to baths) Upstairs bath was luxurious for the other family members. Internal heating very pleasant, Huge Sainburys right next door, brilliant. 1 minute walk to York town centre. I would definitely stay again.
