Overview

About the property

A charming 1930's red brick period-property in the Georgian Mount Area of York

Newly listed with HomeAway, our two Poplar House Service Apartment's are part of an independent family-owned residential-building comprising 4 purpose-designed single-bedroomed apartments / flats with a large and mature communal garden area. The detached and tucked-away gem of a 1930's red-brick period-property operates a NON-SMOKING policy throughout. Each of the individual, self-contained, and private service apartments have been immaculately and tastefully furnished.

Both of the private apartment's / flat's comprise a large and airy family-sized double-bedroom which can be variously configured for a Queen-sized double-bed and / or assorted (max. 4 No.) single-beds (by prior notification), a full-sized independant bathroom and shower, a large reception-hall, a fully equipped all mod-con's white-goods kitchen ( with every utensil you would need!), as well as a large and comfortable integrated lounge and dining area. The apartment's are furnished with solid oak furniture throughout.

Each of the serviced apartment's has its own (free) private, exclusive, and secure off-road, on-site front of house parking, and as such are perfectly situated for York's inner-city visitor attractions, York's Universities, as well as offering easy access to York's city business's.

These exclusive, spacious, fully-serviced, and immaculately maintained double-bedroomed (as Standard) 1st Floor Apartment's / Flat's offer two delightfully sunny, warm, roomy, and fully-equipped self-catering / holiday lett's / serviced-flat's close-by York's iconic Georgian 'Mount' residential area.

York is a small city, and the city-centre and York Minster are just a very short 10 and 15 minute walk away respectfully from Poplar House. York's main historic inner-city medieval gateway (Micklegate Bar) is just a 3-5 minute stroll away with easy access directly onto the world-renowned, picturesque, and castellated City-wall's.

These larger-than-average apartments are also suitable (and safe) for accompanying infants / toddlers. A travel cot is also provided free-of-charge (but please bring your own child's bedding). High-quality folding 'Jay-Be' guest-bed's are also available for both children and adults.

In combination with the split double/twin beds these folding beds can be used to offer extra single-adult stay options ( maximum being 3 single adults per-booking per-flat).

As we offer 2 serviced / self-catering apartment's at Poplar House, together they can accommodate 6 adults comfortably across both of the independent units.

Both apartments have HD Wide-screen / Flat-screen TV's (Free-to-air & Freeserve only), a music-player, DVD, as well as Free Internet WiFi.

About Lilian Panich

Lilian has an arts and design background, but today is an IT Trainer in her full-time work for the NHS

Lilian Panich purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Lilian Panich chose York

Our aim at Poplar House is to provide guests with a large, comfortable, spotlessly-clean, and relaxing apartment space, free from the 4 walled head-banging confines of your bog-standard hotel 'box'. If you are travelling with family, or just with friends, you can choose an apartment at Poplar House with a variety of double and single-bed options.

If you are in York on business you can book an apartment with a big queen-sized bed, and relax in style after a taxing day. If you are holidaying with young children (Children up to 16 years of age stay FREE), the family-sized bedroom is but a 'world away' in the evening from the kids, so enabling parents to relax and get some well deserved, and hard-won quality time, in relaxed and private surroundings.

What makes this apartment unique

Poplar House Serviced Apartments offers different bedding arrangements (King-double and / or multi single-bed options), that are especially suitable for getaway couples or young family's.

We offer two single family-sized bedroomed apartments. Each private apartment / flat consists of a large and airy double-bedroom which can be variously configured for single beds (by prior notification); a full-sized bathroom / shower, a large lobby / reception-hall, a fully equipped all mod-con's white-goods kitchen ( with all utensils), as well as a large and comfortable integrated lounge and dining area.

The apartments can suitably (and safely) accommodate accompanying infants / toddlers and travel-cot, if so desired. High-quality folding 'JAY-BE' guest-bed's are available for older children (18 months and up-wards) and are free to children to 16 years of age. A surcharge is payable for the extra 1 Adult-stay option ( 3 Adults in total as a maximum booking).

Besides much else the spacious apartments have HD Wide-screen / Flat-screen TV's (Free-to-Air & Freeserve only), a music-player, DVD, as well as Free Internet WiFi.

Lovely apartment near to York

  • 5 of 5

Would recommend staying here if you intend to visit York. It had everything that we needed for our 3 night stay. Lilian was there to meet us and show us around the property and provide us with a map and details of the area and York. There were lots of leaflets and information for us to browse through. The apartment comprises of a large lounge with two settees and a dining table and television. The bedroom has a large bed and sofa bed with cupboards and an easy chair. The kitchen comprised of everything you needed, including dishwasher, washing machine, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, microwave, four ring oven and cooker, fridge, freezer, plenty of cupboard space with plenty of pans and cooking utensils. In fact there was nothing more we could have needed. Even the bathroom, had soap and shampoo, towels, toilet rolls and had a bath and shower, although the shower was difficult to adjust the temperature, so I ended up having a bath. Also a nice thought was a welcome pack of bread, eggs, butter, milk and jams, so we needn't do any shopping when we arrived. The coffee machine was also very useful, loved the coffee. It was about a mile to walk into the centre of York approx. 20 minutes, but there were a lot of pubs and restaurants along the way into the centre, so you didn't need to walk into York to have something to eat or drink. We had apartment 1, which overlooked the bowling greens, so it was a nice view, as well. It is all very clean and we had a lovely stay. We are very likely to stay again in the future, if we are up that way.

York is one of England's most historic and beautiful cities and is located towards the north eastern region of England, in the heart of the white rose county of Yorkshire (which is very nearly another country in itself!). The City of York has over 2000 years of recordable and fascinating history to explore within, and around and about its iconic architecture, and right across its beautiful countryside.

Criss-crossed by a variety of peoples through the ages; from the militant early-Briton federated Celtic Brigantes tribes to the Romans, Angles, Jutes, Wends and Saxons, and on to the Vikings and the Normans; and then more laterly culturally with the Georgians and the Victorians. As such, all these people have left their own deep and lasting imprint on the walled 'capital' city of t'North that more recently time, with the exception of the Victorian development of the railways, had often seemed to pass it by.

One of the first must-see places to visit is of course York Minster... Which dominates York's skyline. Comprised of 16,000 tonne's of hand-hewed and hand-crafted Tadcaster town's magnesian limestone, the 14th Century Minster is one of the largest and most magnificent Gothic Cathedrals in Europe. It was a gobsmacking wonder in the 14th century, and remains so to this day.

York in the 21st Century is a relatively small, yet lively city, full of contemporary shops and restaurants, and it buzzes with award-winning visitor attractions. If you haven't visited York before then what are you waiting for?

Local to Poplar House can be found good traditional Brtish Real Ale Pub's (notably The Swan and The Slip Inn), as well as an award-winning Quality Butcher (M & K Butcher's), two fine Grocer's, a superb Delicatessen (The Good Food Shop), a decent Baker (Thomas the Baker), 2 mini-Sainbury's, the highly-popular and family-themed bijou café (The Pig and Pastry), a traditional Yorkshire fish and chips shop (The Fisherman's Wife), a Reel cinema, the newly-opened and very swish Trinacria Café and Bar, along a wide variety of good British and ethnic restaurant's, and not least the well respected Hotel Du Vin bar and bistro.

Besides all of these establishment's there is a host of other excellent local shops, amenities, and choice venues - such as the nationally celebrated Barbican Theatre and Venue Centre. All of these top-range facilities are within a few minutes walking distance of Poplar House.
