Getting around

You are within easy walking distance of the city centre and its many attractions. Many guests do not use their car at all after arrival, knowing it is safe in the secure underground carpark. The train station is a 10-15 minute walk or short taxi ride away. There are both bus and train links to the east coast, North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales.

I will be there to welcome you, give you access to the secure car park and tell you everything you need to know. I am also available, if needed, during your stay whilst respecting your privacy. I am happy to share my local knowledge of this historic city and the many tourist attractions.

Very Good

“Well placed accommodation”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2019

The flat was just right for 2 people. It contained all you need for a city break. The owner met us as we arrived and showed us around the flat which was a nice touch. Really appreciated the complementary supplies, including a bottle of nice wine. More over it was so convenient for all the attractions which could be accessed after a short walk. York is a great place to visit. There are lots of attractions over and above the minster. We recommend the castle museum and if you want a bit of fun try the dungeons. Lots of nice eateries to suit every taste. We liked The House Of Trembling Madness, one situated in Stonegate and the other in the side street by the Mansion House. Both serve good old fashioned British food and really good beer!! All in all a good experience helped by lovely accommodation.

“Wonderful Aapartment with Parking”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2018

We had a really good stay. The apartment is well equipped and superbly maintained. Maggie is really helpful and the welcome pack was most appreciated as it meant we didn’t need to go straight to the shops. There is so much to do in York, and the apartment is so central, that we did not move the car all week.

Great place to stay. Walking distance into town with car park under the apartments. Very clean and has everything you need for a home from home

“Super apartment”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2017

We stayed in this lovely apartment for four nights. It is just as shown on the photographs,centrally located,warm and with lots of little extras.

“Fabulous for a York stay”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2017

We enjoyed our stay so much for 6 nights! The location makes it very easy to walk into the city and the train station. On a quiet (we saw the review about the gym noise.. saw the spinners but never heard a sound!) and upscale street, the apartment is just as you see in the photos- comfortable, immaculate, with every detail attended to in the furnishings, bathroom, and the kitchen. Maggie was so helpful with her communication before arriving, and welcomed us so warmly with great information about the apartment and the area. Highly recommended and we would be delighted to return!

“long weekend”

second time staying at this property and will be back again. Lovely location and property is immaculate to a high standard. Safe car parking. Welcome pack and met by Maggie which is great. 5 minute walk into center of York. Plenty of shops and restaurants on your door step.

“Just Perfect”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2017

This was the second time we have stayed at this flat and is perfect for a short stay in York. Maggie meets and greets you, helps you park your car, which is in a secure car park. The flat itself is spotless and comfortable and has everything you need and more. We will always check this flat first for a vacancy when visiting York.
