The Yorkshire region

York is surrounded by three National parks making it an excellent base for exploring the local countryside, including the windswept North York Moors, Yorkshire coastal towns like Whitby and Scarborough and the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, all within easy reach.

Central York

York is packed with Viking, Roman, Saxon and Georgian heritage. You can see much by walking around the City walls with amazing views of the Minster, Yorks’ architecture and its 2000 years of history.

The city's iconic landmark is York Minster, the largest medieval cathedral in England and the seat of the Archbishop of York. There are other fine medieval churches in the city of York, all well worth exploring.

If you enjoy culture as much as history then you’ll be spoilt for choice with the many world class museums and attractions. The famous National Railway Museum has the Flying Scotsman engine and the Japanese Bullet train amongst its exhibits and the Castle Museum has its own recreation of a Victorian street with cobbles and original shop fittings.

York plays host to a full calendar of events. Year round you’ll find street entertainment, concerts, historical re-enactments, York racing events, entertaining guided walks, ghost tours, and boat trips on the River Ouse, the Christmas market is also a real treat. Most sight seeing can be easily done on foot or from the top deck of one of Yorks double-decker tour buses.

York has a vibrant café culture, it also has stylish riverside wine bars and old fashioned pubs and taverns serving local ales. York even has its own brewery within the City Walls. If you prefer afternoon tea you will not be disappointed, a visit to the world famous Betty’s Tea Rooms is a must!

York is also great for shopping with a mix of designer labels, independent boutiques and well known high street names. After shopping, there are a huge number of restaurants, cafes and bars to choose from. Again, you’ll be spoilt for choice with world class fine food restaurants, more traditional Yorkshire fare and informal bistros serving the best of local produce.

A lovely experience from my first enquiry to the very end. The owners and manager have been incredibly helpful and made everything very easy. The apartment is in a quiet, lovely complex by the river and only a short walk from York city centre. We were met by Chris, the manager, and he made sure we had all the information we needed and was on hand all weekend should we have needed him. The apartment itself was well maintained and sparkling clean, comfy beds, a super powerful shower, well equipped kitchen great living room with comfortable sofas, dining table and TV with lots of channels and DVDs provided and useful balcony. Only one tiny down point is that the shower is fed from a tank so you will need to get the water boost on if more than one of you wants a hot shower. We managed one and a half short ones the first day! I will definitely be returning.

Hi Samantha Thanks so much for your great review and glad to know that you found our place comfortable. Hope that you managed to see and do everything you wanted to in York. Very glad to know that you'll be returning - we look forward to hearing from you. Have a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year in the meantime. Best wishes Rachael & Rob

"Perfectly located for a family to enjoy an exploring holiday in York."

A lovely clean flat. Very close to town and attractions. Good variety of attractions and activities within walking distance. No need for a car to explore.

"Even better than last year"

Ever since our first stay in the Apartment in York (March 2013) we have been looking forward to going back. This year we arrived on Good Friday and were so pleased to find that nothing had changed. Actually, that's not quite true because the owners, Rachael and Rob, have made some improvements to "furniture and fittings" that reflect their commitment to offering a great holiday experience in a wonderful city. The Apartment is spotless and fully equipped and the Housekeeper, Chris, is extremely helpful. Look no further if you're seeking super self catering accommodation with private garage parking in York - you won't be disappointed.

Hello - thank you so much for your review and great to know that you had another lovely stay in York. Yes we've made a few improvements recently - new carpets, new TV and a bit of decorating to keep things fresh. And, we agree that Chris is great - he's been looking after our place and our guests for 7 years now, we consider ourselves very lucky to have him. Hope to hear from you again - our very best wishes, Rachael & Rob

"Comfortable accommodation and perfect location for a visit to York"

We found the apartment very comfortable and had everything to hand that we needed during our visit. The location down by the river was ideal for walking and jogging as well as being handy for the nearby shops, cafes and pubs. The short walk into the centre was also very convenient and we just needed to cross the road to get onto the closest section of the city walls. A most enjoyable stay.

"You won't find better anywhere in York"

If you're looking for a quality self catering break in York then you won't find anywhere better than "The Apartment in York." I can say this after sampling numerous flats and apartments in the City over the last 25 years. The accommodation including rooms, furniture, crockery and linen is spotless and the whole feel is modern, light and airy. The location, close to the river bank and with access to the Walls, is incomparable and there are several different routes to walk into the City Centre which take only 10 minutes. The garage under the property is a huge advantage and our car had its own holiday, not moving from one Friday to the next. The whole transaction from booking to when we picked up the keys was handled both pleasantly and professionally and I would like to thank the owners Rob and Rachael and their Housekeeper Chris for their excellent efforts on our behalf.

Thank you so much for your glowing review. Delighted to know that your enjoyed your break in York and found the apartment comfortable. We hope to hear from you again. In the meantime - our Best wishes and Happy Easter! from Rachael & Rob

"Superb flat in a wonderful city"

York is one of our favourite places and it deserves a property like this to savour its delights to the full. The flat is very comfortable, sophisticated and thoughtfully furnished by the very helpful owners. Its location is both peaceful and convenient for central York and is characterful as well as relaxing. From the moment we arrived we felt at home and much look forward to returning.

So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your feedback and kind comments. Just picking up on your point about a washing machine - unfortunately we didn't have quite enough space in the kitchen to plumb one in. It was a toss-up between a mini dishwasher and washing machine or a decent sized dishwasher! We made the decision to go with the full sized dishwasher as felt it would get more use. However our housekeepers provide a collect and return wash/dry service - they charge about £7 per load currently for this service and the guests arranges this directly. The apartment does have ironing and airing facilities. Look forward to hearing from you again Best wishes Rachael & Rob

"Clean tidy and well equipped apartment in very good location"

Ground floor apartment comprising kitchen, lounge, 2 bedrooms and bathroom with storage cupboard. Step in entrance hall so not suitable for wheelchairs. Balcony external. Very clean and in good decorative order. Kitchen recently refitted. Located in a quiet complex of apartments and houses just outside the City walls and with river view. Good to sit outside in evening and see the boats go by. Close to the excellent and vibrant Bishopthorpe Road shops and a 10 minute walk to the City Centre. Also very close to lovely riverside walks up to and over the Millenium Bridge and into Rowntree Park . Always plenty going on in the neighbourhood but good to have this peaceful place to return to.

Many thanks for your kind review. Good to know that you enjoyed your stay in York and found the apartment comfortable. Glad also that you made use of the bikes and did the riverside walk past Rowntree park and to the Millennium bridge(our favourite walk). Best wishes Rachael & Rob

"Excellent apartment in an ideal location with parking facilities - 100% recommended."

The apartment is located within close walking distance of the centre of York set back from the River Ouse in an attractive development. There is almost everything you need in the apartment for a comfortable break including a dishwasher - no washing machine but laundry can be arranged through Chris who looks after the property - You will be greeted by Chris who is friendly and helpful. One big plus is that you are provided with a garage meaning that if you don't wish to use the car during your stay it is safe in the locked garage. York provides loads of opportunities for entertainment and history and all within walking distance. This apartment is highly recommended.

Many Thanks Kie and Ann for your feedback. Glad you had another great stay in York - despite the weather not being so kind this time! Hope to hear from you again soon. Best wishes Rachael & Rob

"Great location, comfortable, contemporary, clean and cosy!"

The Apartment in York was the perfect base for our holiday - when we arrived we parked up in the secure garage underneath the apartment and just walked everywhere. The apartment itself was super comfortable, warm and quiet - great for people with young kids. The apartment is really close to the city centre however there is also a main road a few minutes walk away which has some lovely takeaways, a deli and some general food shops. The owners were really helpful with the booking process and we even received a lovely welcome pack of tea, coffee, biscuits and a bottle of wine on our arrival. We thought this was a lovely touch. We will definitely be back again to use it as our base to explore more of Yorkshire soon!

Thank you for your lovely feedback, we're very glad to know that you enjoyed your time in York and found the apartment comfortable. Look forward to hearing from you again. Best wishes Rachael & Rob
