Description from owner
Sandra Depledge Winner 2014 'Certificate of Excellence' Tripadvisor. This impressive period property is on the very doorstep of all that is interesting and exciting about York, you could not be better placed for a perfect city break. The area of Monkgate is a very upmarket residential area very close to York Minster and the city walls. The apartment is on the top floor of the very beautiful County House apartment block (this before converted was the County Hospital). The rooms are, spacious (much larger than they appear in the photographs) and light, and are furnished and equipped to a very high standard. There are two double bedrooms with double beds, one is en suit. There is an additional office/3rd bedroom with double bed, (used as an ALTERNATIVE to the mezzanine bedroom if preferred, please agree the use of a third bed with me before booking as there maybe a charge for linen and servicing).There is also a lounge ,a family bathroom,a kitchen diner and a large hallway

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 4 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 neighbours.

“Ideal Location, Ordinary Accommodation”
A great location in a beautiful old building just outside the ancient city walls. The design of the flat was unusual given that the lounge and a bedroom were on mezzanine floors. Not ideal as these rooms lacked privacy from those below. The heating was by storage heaters which appeared to be on a programme which heated in the afternoon and not overnight as one might expect resulting in not much heat in the morning. Also they were not switched on when we arrived, so it was quite cold in the apartment. Sadly the lift was out of action the whole time we were there meaning a climb up six flights of stairs - with cases etc!
I am very disappointed with this review. I guess you 'can't please all the people all the time'. The heating IS overnight storage heating and was on when the guest arrived. The apartments are very warm and cosy and guests are usually very pleased with the layout and space provided. I cannot be responsible for the lift, although this is the first time in over 3 years that it was not working, the engineer did come out on Xmas day!. Sorry you did not enjoy your stay.
“Beautiful and spacious apartment in an ideal location”
This apartment will wow you as soon as you drive up to the building....once you're inside...it's spacious...beautiful and is a home from home with everything you need inside. It's lovely and quiet...away from any traffic and there is a huge Sainsbury supermarket...2 mins away behind the building. I can't wait to stay again...it's right in the centre of york with only about a 5 minute walk to the attractions....
“Fantastic Accomodation - lovely owner”
The accommodation was lovely, Sandra was really informative, excellent value for money, had everything you needed, ideal for break with friends and family.
“Superb apartment, ideally located, everything you need for a perfect stay.”
We stayed here for 3 nights in October. The apartment is set within a beautiful building, the old County Hospital. Split over two floors, the layout is quirky but works. The rooms are spacious and airy, the kitchen is well-equipped, there is private gated parking and you're only a short stroll into the main streets of York. We were travelling with two kids and there was plenty of space for us all. Would definitely use again, and have recommended to friends.
“Very convenient location”
Very nice apartment.,with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. Mezzanine level bedroom ok for family or a girly break as this opens up onto the main bedroom. Beds very comfy.If you want a little privacy let Sandra know you will need the spare bed making up. It can be a little noisy from the early morning commuter traffic and the Sainsbury deliveries. Sainsburys is just round the corner and so very handy for shopping , the apartment overlooks the Sainsbury car park. Very convenient to walk into York, we didn't use the car at all during our weeks stay.We had a lovely week and would recommend to anyone who wanted a comfortable and convenient base to explore York City.
This apartment is perfect and suits everyones needs. You couldn't ask for a better location with only a few minutes walk to City Centre. The apartment itself is stunning and there is also secure parking. I could not have asked to stay in a nicer place and I want to give a big thank you to Sandra who was amazing. She kept in contact before, throughout and after our stay and I will definitely be returning again. I would recommend anyone to stay at Apartment 1
Excellent apartment ,good location, easy to find ,five minites walk to york minster, onsite parking and a sainsbury next door it really has got everything you need
I would highly recommend this apartment and its amenities. We stayed for a week with our niece and were very satisfied with its cleanliness. The kitchen is well equipped and all the rooms are tastefully decorated. The television in the kitchen is a nice touch and certainly much appreciated as we didn't eat out very much and preferred instead to return to the apartment most evenings. The living area on the mezzanine level was very nicely furnished and the seating areas very comfortable. We decided to stay in the bedroom on the mezzanine while my niece used the ground floor bedroom with the ensuite bathroom. We found this perfectly adequate and certainly there were no issues around privacy. There is of course the other double ground floor bedroom should you wish to use this as an alternative. However we loved the quirkiness of the layout and it certainly only added to the enjoyment of our stay. As previous reviewers have said, you are right next door to Sainsbury's and also within a few minutes walk of York city centre. We also found our own dedicated car parking space and secure car park a real plus point. I very rarely leave a review on trip advisor and we don't usually return to the same rental property again. However, I have made an exception on this occasion and loved our stay so much we have booked again.
“Lovely apartment - utterly superb location.”
We had a fantastic family holiday during half term. I never had to drive one as all amenities and attractions were within walking distance. The Dungeon and Ghost walk were our favourites and whilst the girls were at the Chocolate Story tour I had a few pints at The House of Trembling Madness. We love York and we love the apartment. Thanks Sandra.
“Stunning apartment in a great location”
The apartment is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for a good old catch up, including a central location, a well equipped kitchen, and a sweet mezzanine snug with easy chairs and a sofa. Sandra was helpful throughout the booking process and was on hand to show us around on arrival. York is a lovely city with great places to eat and drink and a good range of shops for a bit of retail therapy. All in all, the perfect choice for a girls' get together!
