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.

Yorkshire has some of the most beautiful scenery in the UK and is a joy to tour. Other places of interest include Harrogate and the seaside resorts of Bridlington and Scarborough.

York holds many festivals throughout the year. To name a few there is an Early Music Festival in July, the National Book Fair and a food festival in September. York's famous mystery plays are performed each year in August at the city's museum gardens. York race course holds several events throughout the year. York also holds a Christmas Market which is hugely popular given the atmospheric setting that the city provides.

There are plenty of cultural activities in the area and many places to visit including historical attractions and some wonderful shopping, including Designer Outlet stores. Further afield Yorkshire has some great walking country. This location offers scope for as active or relaxing a holiday as you choose!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Layerthorpe, York, York, York, UK:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Own parking place Free Wi-Fi BT sports channel on flatscreen TV Extremely nice decor Convenient for city centre and university Very comfortable beds and quality bedding Owner accepts debit or credit card payments
