This apartment is just a few yards from the City Walls and Walmgate the most ancient of the gated entrances to the old walled city. It is possible to walk along the walls around most of the city centre and past York Minster one of Europe's oldest and most famous gothic cathedrals.
The apartment location is also close to the university campus and is just a minute's walk from two of York's best supermarkets - Waitrose and Morrisons. If you dont want to self-cater, the apartment is a mere five minute walk from some of York's finest restaurants including the Blue Bicycle, J Baker, and other celebrated restaurants in Fossgate.
The city centre, old shopping streets and The Minster can be reached on foot in 15-20 minutes.
I bought this property for my son whilst he was at University in York. After he left I couldn't bear to sell the flat as I love it too much. I also wanted a good reason to keep on visiting York - my favourite city.

This property was furnished for the owners with quality items. This makes it stand out from run of the mill rental apartments which can be sparsely and cheaply furnished. The property has a great location - right on the city walls - just a short walk from the city centre, close to the university and almost next door to a Waitrose supermarket.
Own parking place
BT sports channel on flatscreen TV

Convenient for city centre and university
Very comfortable beds and quality bedding

This was an ideal property. When we arrived it was spotlessly clean and well equipped. It's just outside the city walls, so ideal for exploring the town - we particularly enjoyed exploring nearby Walmgate, with it's quirky shops and many, many food and drink options. The parking space is invaluable, in a city where parking is at a premium. There's also a Waitrose five minutes up the road, so we could stock up on food quickly and easily. Although we only stayed for the weekend (for the York marathon, for which it's ideally located), it would also make a fine base for a longer stay. The owner was also excellent - lots of useful information was provided, and the booking was entirely hassle-free.
Had a great weekend in York. The apartment is clean spacious well equipped, perfectly placed with the real bonus of a car parking space. Most of all communication with the owner was prompt, efficient, courteous and helpful.
Very comfortable apartment at the foot of all there is to see in York. Highly recommended.
My daughter and I spent 2 nights in the apartment. Booking was easy and Olwen answered any questions very quickly and was most helpful. Everything was as described, very clean and comfortable, and lovely and warm.I would definitely stay again when I next visit York.
York is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the UK. The city itself is rich in history and contains some beautiful old buildings and historically-themed attractions, in particular, York Minster, one of the finest Gothic cathedrals in Northern Europe with stunning stained glass windows. Another ancient and beautiful cathedral nearby is Selby Abbey.
York is also home to The Shambles and Stonegate, medieval streets with many fabulous independent shops, boutiques, and cafes. Talking of cafes, no one should miss a visit to Betty's.
