Unique, elegant and characterful self-contained apartment in our newly restored period town-house.

Ideally located in a quiet residential street 5 minutes walk from York Minster and the hustle and bustle of the city centre with its museums, fine restaurant dining and shopping. 8 minutes walk from York station.

With an eye for the unusual and attention to detail Royal College of Art graduates David and Anita have created the perfect, dreamy get-away.

Selected by Alistair Sawday's 'Special Places to Stay' (the only one in York). This spacious apartment has been lovingly restored and styled by its artist owners and features their original artworks (paintings/lights). The apartment has solid oak flooring, antique Persian rugs and a combination of period French and contemporary designer furniture which contributes to the apartment's special character. A stunning set of 18th century chateau doors divide the living and bedrooms and provide the 'wow factor'.

A welcome basket of Prosecco or red or white (please let us know in advance) olives, artisan made bread, preserves, cereals, organic eggs, fruit juice, Betty's/Yorkshire tea and ground coffee provided for your own breakfast.


The living room with its vintage linen covered chesterfield sofa, large format art books, 42" Smart HD TV with Freeview, DVD player is perfect for a cosy night in.

Wet-room style bathroom with walk-in shower, heated towel rail, underfloor heating and plenty of white fluffy towels (organic eco shower gel and shampoo etc.)

The kitchen - reclaimed slate work-tops, Victorian tiled floor. Induction hob, oven, fridge, microwave, electric kettle, coffee maker, toaster etc. Washer-dryer, steam iron and ironing board.

The apartment is within our family house but completely private and with its own entrance. Your hosts are on hand, though, for advice on local attractions, restaurants and places to visit for day trips.

York's many attractions, including The Minster, Yorkshire Museum and Gardens, Treasures House, Fairfax House, Castle Museum, National Railway Museum, City Walls, Theatre Royal, City Screen Cinema, Betty's famous Tea Rooms are all 5-10 minutes walk away as well as beautiful riverside walks and restaurants, pubs and bars too numerous to mention.

A walk through the tranquil Museum Gardens, a couple of minutes away, past the medieval ruins of St. Marys Abbey and the restored 3rd century Roman Multangular tower brings you into the pedestrianised heart of the city.

York station (with coach stops for excursions to Whitby, Castle Howard and the coast) 8 minutes walk.
