About Olwen Glynn Owen

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.

Olwen Glynn Owen purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Olwen Glynn Owen chose York

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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

A lovely flat in a great location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

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.

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.

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!
