Overview

About the property

Central location with stunning views of the river Ouse set in refurbished mill.

FREE WiFi.

Ideal as a City Break, this newly refurbished apartment offers stunning riverside views in a peaceful, central location. Two double bedrooms, bathroom, living/dining room and separate kitchen.

Situated in a newly refurbished mill, our 2-bedroom apartment is furnished to a high standard as a home from home, with light-oak furniture and fresh linen. It offers both comfort and convenience and an outlook directly onto the river so that you can just relax and watch the boats passing by and the tourists feeding the geese and swans.

Just a short walk (5 minutes) to the busy shops and historic city centre. Walk down the famous medieval street, ‘The Shambles’ leading to the magnificent cathedral, York Minster. Visit one of the many galleries and museums including the Jorvic Centre which provides a realistic and graphic experience of what life was like during the Viking occupation.

For a different view of the city, take a river cruise or dare yourself to join the nightly Ghost Walk (suitable for children) and learn some of the grizzly secrets of York’s past.

Enjoy an evening out dining at one of the many excellent restaurants or have a pint of beer in an Olde English pub and then dance the night away at a Nightclub. There are Theatres, an Opera House and a specialist Film Theatre with programmes to suit all tastes.

Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool and even London are all reachable within a day by train. The seaside town of Scarborough is reachable in under an hour.

Unfortunately there is no on-site car-parking at the apartment but free overnight parking is available from 6pm to 8am on the riverside beneath the apartment windows (please observe the strict times). Daytime parking is possible on the neighbouring streets but there is a fee for this. Free on-street parking is possible a short distance away but this would involve a walk of about 15 minutes back to the apartment. There are, however, two bicycles available for your use, as there are pleasant cycle paths alongside the river.

Stylish comfortable and perfect position

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had a wonderful week. The apartment was well appointed. Comfortable, and stylish. It was just across the river from the centre of York, and it was easy to walk to all attractions. There were a couple of small grocery stores within a block of the apartment. When we were not exploring all that Edinburgh has to offer, we could watch life on the river from the lounge room and one bedroom window. As other reviewers have noted, there is some noise from the pubs over the river, but not really a significant issue- apart from reminding us of our advancing years! The owner and her cleaner made checking in very smooth. I would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I note that you mention Edinburgh, which I believe is your next destination, hence your confusion. We look forward to your return visit.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Great property in a great location in the centre of York, not far from the train station. Property well looked after and Margaret was very helpful, even when I rang her later in the day to ask about parking. Will definitely be using again.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is excellently located, being close to all attractions, amenities, while at the same time remarkably quiet and relaxing. We stayed on a very warm weekend, so bars were full, inside and out, particularly the ones opposite the apartment, but this did not cause any problems with noise. The apartment is tastefully furnished, with two good sized double bedrooms and the views over the river and city are brill!! Just a 10-15 minute flat walk from the station. Owner was really accommodating for us and very friendly...Thanks!!

Would definitely book again....great value for money.

Great property but bait and switch on price

  • 4 of 5

This is a great base for a York holiday. My wife, daughter and I really enjoyed the central location and the well-appointed flat. The flat overlooks the rivers and couldn't be more central. If it is hot, there is no air conditioning so beware. Our only complaint is that once we made the initial booking, the owner came back saying it would be another 50 pounds for the two night stay. It was short notice so we sucked it up, but it left us with a bad taste.
