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 Layerthorpe

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

Great Weekend Away!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the flat for a lovely weekend in York. There was 4 of us in our party and the lovely owner Olwen was happy to help with setting out 4 beds, (3 and a sofa bed)

The flat was amazing, very clean and tidy and had a cute balcony. There was also tea, coffee and milk already kindly provided.

If I had to come back into York with a small group again, I would definitely try to book this holiday home.

Excellent apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped apartment with parking for one car. A few minutes gentle stroll takes you straight into the heart of York. Easy walks to all the main attractions in York. The local pub -the Rose and Crown serves good food and drink and is two minutes walk from the flat. We would certainly book again.

Very good place to stay in York

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed, very clean and an excellent position to walk to the centre of York, it had parking but we didn't need to use the car and supermarkets just round the corner. Would highly recommend and if visiting York again would stay there.

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!
