The spacious living room, with solid wood floor, has a very comfortable leather sofa plus two chairs which convert to single beds if needed so that the apartment in total could accommodate 4 people. Whilst there is full central heating, a wall mounted electric fire offers a pleasant focal point. Also in the living room there is a new flat-screen TV and free wifi which extends to the whole property.The kitchen leads from the living room and is fully equipped with a high-quality ceramic hob and electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, washer drier, fridge, toaster and kettle. It also contains a dining table and four chairs.The carpeted bedroom has a hotel quality super-king size bed which can be offered as two full sized singles if required. The bedding is Egyptian cotton. There is plenty of drawer and wardrobe space and a second flat-screen TV with dvd is also provided along with a hairdryer.The shower room is fully tiled with a walk in shower, toilet, basin and a heated towel rail. Plenty of large, fluffy white towels are included in the rental and there is lots of space to store your toiletries.

Getting around

York is well served by Manchester and Leeds airports and a very fast east coast train line. There are frequent buses to the coast and countryside.

Interaction with guest

The keys are available in a keypad next to the front door of the apartment. I will send you an email a few weeks before your arrival with the keypad number and information on how to reach the property. My telephone number is available to you at all times and I am happy to advise and recommend attractions, restaurants etc. if you so wished. However, there is a large folder in the apartment with lots of information which I hope you will find helpful. I also supply tourist information leaflets to give you ideas for things to do which saves you going to the local Tourist Information office. The apartment also has books about York.
