|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
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.
We visited York for 3 nights at the beginning of December to catch up with family and visit York Christmas Market. This lovely property is just as described. It is very stylish, well equipped and clean. It is in a perfect location with very easy access into the city with all its eateries and tourist attractions, all within a short walking distance. Both Myrna and her housekeeper Margaret were very friendly and helpful in every aspect. Margaret was there to welcome us, advise us where to park and show us around the flat when we arrived. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return ourselves in the not too distant future!.
We just had a whistle stop visit to York and the apartment was superbly situated for getting out and about into town! It was immaculately clean and had everything you would need for two nights or two weeks. Margaret the housekeeper was lovely and very helpful although we never managed to meet!!! Maybe next time!
A parking space would be a bonus but we used the long stay in St George's Fields which was closer than residential parking outside the parking zones.
We would definitely come back and would certainly recommend it to friends and family.
Being in the centre, the apartment was in an ideal location for a visit to York. It was spacious, with a lovely view of the river. The apartment was clean, well-maintained, containing everything we needed. We had a lovely welcoming from Margaret the housekeeper and Myrna provided excellent customer service.
The apartment was very stylish and brilliantly presented with all the possible amenities and comforts.
I loved sitting at the window over looking the river watching the boats and geese and the world go by.
I wish our stay had been longer.
We were met by the the pleasant property manager who informed us of the various events going on and locations of the local attractions and made us feel very welcome.
York was amazing as this was our first time to the city we wanted get as much site seeing in as possible, we visited the Lendal sellers for drinks, sampled Jamie Olivers which was delightful, Bettys tea room which was a lovely experience and The Olive Tree restaurant which was very tasty as well excellent food in York. we also found a gem of a bar that sold different Belgium, Flemish and dutch beers
We took a trip round the castle wall visiting the various museums, Roman baths and castle which was brilliant, Found the famous Shambles, and enjoyed the many Independent shops.
We will most certainly be returning to York and would definitely be staying here again.
We unfortunately arrived during heavy rain for several days and the river flooded so high that our access to the apartment was restricted requiring us to wade through deep water to get into the apartment on several days.
Fortunately the apartment itself was not affected and everything worked superbly. We loved the views of the flooded river (from up real close) and got lots of pictures. During the days we just toured all the museums and sights of the city. So much to see and do and York has so much to offer. We bought food and ate our dinners in the apartment (great oven). The apartment had everything we needed and was very modern and roomy.
I would strongly recommend that the apartment get wifi access as we had difficulty communicating with the housekeeper and owner during the time we were there.
If you have any plans on staying in York for a short or longer break, then look no further than this apartment. Situated looking over the River Ouse it could not be in a better place for the ideal holiday location. Just a short walk from the city centre it really is perfectly located and one that would suit all the family.
As for the apartment itself, it is beautifully furnished to a high standard and has all the requirements to make it the perfect home away from home. We certainly found it very hard to leave as we were so comfortable there. The views from the apartment of the river were priceless, we really could not think of a better place to be than this. Like all good things though it all ended to quickly but we are already planning our next visit. We would definitely stay there again as it was everything we hoped for and more.
