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.

Perfect weekend family getaway!
This was a new(ish) experience for us as our usual choice for a weekend away has been a hotel or B and B. What tempted us to try a rental property was the extra time it afforded us to be able to relax together, privately, as a family - the oh so important quality time together!
So, looking around for a suitable property, we found this.
It looked pretty impressive on the website and proved to be just as impressive, if not more so, on arrival.
Its location is excellent - an easy walk from the station (and for a weekend in York, a car is not needed), and right in the heart of the city, a stroll from the shops, bars and restaurants, not to mention the tourist attractions of the city - not often you walk back to your accommodation and find a couple of Vikings nearby!
The instructions re keys etc were spot on, as was all the other information we needed. The booking process was equally straightforward and the owners were very helpful with advice etc.
The accommodation felt so comfortable right from the start - in fact it was so comfortable that on both our evenings there, instead of going out for drinks or to eat, we chose to stay in!
There was plenty of room for us - five adults - and two bathrooms were a bonus. The bedrooms were comfortable and with great views over the rooftops of the city. The lounge diner had plenty of space for us to spread out in and we loved the mezzanine. In fact we spent some time discussing how we would like to live there and how we would use the different areas!
We appreciated the provision of well, just about everything we could have needed in terms of toiletries, kitchen bits and pieces (lovely cake - thank you) even spare batteries! Although we didn't do any cooking over the weekend ( lovely cafe for breakfast right by the front door to the apartments) the kitchen was very well equipped and there was plenty of crockery and glassware. I can't think of anything we could possibly have needed, it was so well equipped - our daughter so loved the hair straighteners she went home and ordered some exactly the same!
There has obviously been a great deal of thought, care and flair in preparing this accommodation for the rental market and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
We only get together as a family a couple of times a year and this was beyond perfect.
Oh my goodness, such kind words! You were the perfect guests and we really appreciate your feedback and thank you for your lovely comments.
Fabulous loft apartment slap bang in the centre of York
We had a fantastic two night stay in Sharon & Dave's exceptional apartment. The hosts attention to detail was evident throughout. The apartment is very comfortable, and well equipped with some really nice features. Most important of all is the fact that when you step out of the apartment you're right in the centre of York. Nearest parking is a short 5 minute walk away so that wasn't a problem for us and Sharon was extremely quick to respond to any questions we had. Perfect place to stay for a short trip to the beautiful city of York.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write about your stay...we are really happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We do try to stress that the location is superb, so we thank you for your comments!

Great apartment for family of 4. Fantastic location. Terrific hosts.
A pleasure to host these guys, great communication from the start. They were respectful and understanding when a plumbing problem arose. They also left the apartment in great shape! Thanks :-)
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.
Thanks for the kind words, glad you enjoyed your stay!
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.
