Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

The location of The Loft apartment is unrivalled in the city. It is located on the top floor of a converted warehouse (there is a lift) tucked away at the end of Peter Lane where three famous "snickleways" meet makes it accessible from all sorts of directions. It is literally steps away from The Shambles, the Minster is two minutes walk away, the Yorvik Viking experience is also just steps away and there are countless restaurants and shops surrounding the building. All this but still the apartment is calm and quiet, away from street noise, the Minster bells can be heard when the windows are open!

With two double bedrooms and two full size single beds on the mezzanine area, The Loft apartment can comfortably sleep up to six people, also has two bathrooms! There is a fully equipped kitchen for dining in or just a quick cuppa before hitting the shops again!

The master bedroom is en suite with a shower and the family bathroom has a lovely deep tub and a shower. The mezzanine is reached by quite a steep stairway but once up there, the space is large, bright and very pleasant with two single beds.

The two double bedrooms have smart televisions, as does the living room and there is a flatscreen television on the mezzanine level too.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you might need, we alos leave milk, juice, tea and coffee for when you arrive, There is also a selection of cereals, jams and other beverages for you to enjoy.

Wifi connection is excellent throughout the apartment and is free to use.

About Sharon and Dave Marshall

My husband and I ran a bed and breakfast in Scarborough for 13 years until earlier this year when we moved ourselves and our two teenagers to York. Our dream is to get the kids all grown up and then move into our apartment in the centre of York. We moved to Scarborough after having lived in Florida for 20 plus years and we settled back really very well into the English way of life, Dave is original from Sheffield whilst I was born and bred in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.

Sharon and Dave Marshall purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Sharon and Dave Marshall chose York

We love our apartment because it is modern and bright with an amazing calmness about it but with the fascinating city of York right below it. The location was the first thing we fell in love with but then the apartment itself with it's huge windows and the feeling of not being overlooked, you cannot see or hear a car or bus or a person for that matter but you are steps away from the vibrancy of one the best cities in the North of England and all the history, culture and diversity it has to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

Modern meets 17th century...Popeshead Court is a converted warehouse built in the 17th century but with all the modernity of a new build. There are exposed beams and vaulted ceilings and still some original steel posts running through the apartment.

Fabulous city centre location with York Minster and Shambles only 2-3 minute walk away. The apartment is in the very centre of the city and so all restaurants, bars and attractions surround the area.

The perfect place to stay in York!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful, with a distant view of the York Minster. It was so convenient we loved being able to walk everywhere in only 10 minutes or so. I hated to leave - it is the sort of place that you just want to stay in.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well situated to let everyone staying enjoy what york has for the tourist.

The loft apartment is only 10 mins away from the train station and with google maps it was easy to find.

Sharon was always available by phone or text for information.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

Great location and owners were very nice.

Room enough for our family of 4. Would recommend softer mattress in master and softer pillows. Other than that had everything we needed as well as snacks and fruit.
