The Yorkshire 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!

Central York

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.

"Beautiful apartment, great location"

The apartment is in a central location but is very quiet. It is very spacious with quality fixtures and fittings. The goody basket provided is also very welcome and welcoming. We would highly recommend a stay here for anyone visiting York.

"The best apartment to stay in when visiting York."

Stonegate Retreat was the best accommodation we had during our entire stay in the UK. Beautifully newly decorated, all the amenities and more you could ask for, stunning view of the Abbey, quiet and centrally located. Communication with the owner was topnotch, from when we booked until the day we left. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone going to York. We will return.

"Superb City Centre location and great accommodation"

Located in the pedestrian centre of York - totally secluded courtyard (such a surprise in a bustling city) with great views of the cathedral this two bedroom apartment has superb facilities for our family of five adults - lovely sized rooms, tastefully decorated with every amenity you would need and for the Christmas holiday some lovely touches provided to make our stay so very special. Beautifully clean and presented - well fitted bathrooms (en suite the family bathroom) which made it a real pleasure to host a family stay. We couldn't recommend it more highly...

"Amazing central location with view of Minster and high quality facilities"

We were well looked after before our trip by the owner and were not disappointed by the property which was clean spacious and modern. It is very central and Betty's tea shop can be seen from the front door of the apartment block not to mention views of the Minster from the apartment (it is just a few minutes walk away). Worked well for our elderly mothers but would suit any age group of family or friends. Good to have parking permit for local car park. Highly recommended.

"York Luxury"

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.

"Fantastic apartment - highly recommended"

My husband and I stayed here in September and it was fantastic. The apartment is so clean and comfortable, very chic lots of room and amenities. The location is perfect right in the heart of the historic sites of York everything is right outside your door. In fact there is a spectacular view of York Minster right outside the flat's living room window. I would highly recommend this holiday suite for a short or long term stay to anyone.

"Super apartment in the heart of York"

We had the most wonderful weekend in this apartment. The accommodation had everything and more that you would need on a holiday. It has been well thought out and is decorated to a high standard. It is so central yet so quiet once you are in the apartment. The view of the Minster from the balcony is lovely.
