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 North Yorkshire

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.

Excellent. *****

  • 5 of 5

Fab apartment, nothing not to like. Everything you need - home from home. Quality furniture, bed linen etc. Location in the town centre was perfect. Sharon was a lovely host and all the little extras were much appreciated. We only stayed for two nights and it rained most of the time but we were very happy to come back to the apartment and dry out and sit in front of the fire with a glass of wine. We would return if there is another occasion and I feel I celebrated my birthday in style. Deb.x

A fabulous find in the heart of York.

  • 5 of 5

The loft apartment is very spacious and well equipped with lots of extras. We loved the view above the roof tops and the location is ideal for sightseeing. The owners were very helpful with our late arrival and any little problems that cropped up. We would thoroughly recommend it.

I can't say enough about how wonderful this apartment in York was on our recent trip to the UK. It was, by far, the best place we stayed on our entire vacation. Sharon was fantastic to deal with, going above and beyond to meet us in town center at check-in, walk us around and show us the neighborhood, and even purchase some milk, juice and cake for us to enjoy once we arrived. The apt. itself was in an ideal location, in the heart of old town York. Everything was exceptionally clean (kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, linens) and there were many, many, many amenities (soaps, shampoos, lotions, tampons, tea, biscuits, candies, dish soap, umbrellas, and the list goes on). The layout of the apartment was perfect for me, my husband, and our twin 16-year old boys. The loft upstairs has two twin beds, and the two bedrooms on the main floor each have a double bed. The master bedroom has it's own bathroom, and the hallway has another full bathroom. The apartment also has a tremendous amount of visitor information for anyone new to the area. All shops, pubs, restaurants, banks, points of interest were literally right out the front door. I would be thrilled to stay here again. Thanks so much Sharon for a terrific stay.

Ladies York Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic apartment in a fabulous location only a stones throw from many York highlights. All rooms where clean, extremely well equipped and with lovely modern decor. The apartment had a really quiet and safe feel about it, a true home from home.

The little touches provided were wonderful and much appreciated, I don't think there was anything Sharon hadn't thought of. Communication was fantastic even when we had an unexpected incident during the evening.

Polite note, the ladies staying on the mezzanine level said blackout blinds would have been useful as the early morning sun did tend to stream through but this was definitely a minor detail.

I will definitely be recommending the apartment to all my friends and family and will be back again. We have stayed in many hotels and apartments in York over the years and can definitely say by far this is the best.
