This stunning apartment sits within a grade 2 listed building which has been sympathetically renovated and manages to preserve the integrity of the wonderful original features whilst adding some modern, eclectic touches.

Being the birthplace of Joseph Rowntree the building is adorned with old photographs and artefacts that give you a real sense of the history of the building.

Superbly positioned just opposite ‘The Shambles’, you really couldn’t be closer to all that the city has to offer. That being said the apartment has a great balance of being a quiet retreat away from any street noise.

Upon entering you will find a well presented kitchen equipped with all the amenities you’d expect to find, such as a dishwasher, fridge freezer and washing machine. There is also a dining area to accommodate 2.

The lounge is equipped with a very comfortable sofa and separate chair. There is also the striking original feature here of the old stove. Certainly something you won’t see in your typical city centre property!

The master bedroom is spacious and accommodates a double bed, wardrobe and dressing table. The bathroom of the property comes with a bath with shower over.

Although there is no parking with the apartment, paid for parking is available just a couple of minutes walk away at the Q Park where you can park for a full 24 hours for £19.

Spent a few nights here and really did not want to come away today. So pleased with the apartment, felt really at home and safe as soon as we walked in the door. Decor is lovely and the sofa and bed are both really comfortable. Location is perfect and meant we could park up and forget about the car completely, with plenty of bars and restaurants on the doorstep. That being said, the apartment is really quiet, despite being so close to everything. Will definitely recommend this apartment to any friends coming to visit York.

Perfect accommodation for a weekend in York! The location couldn’t have been better and the property was exactly how you see in the pictures, if not better!

Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect stay, thank you so much for hosting such a beautiful apartment. Location was a step away from the centre of all amenities and the apartment itself felt like home.

lovely stay, fantastic location, and you are no further than 5 minutes walk from everywhere. marks and Spencer just across the road for essentials and loads of great places to eat nearby.

Lovely stay just needs a couple of tweeks

The apartment is in an excellent location, is very tastefully furnished and immaculately clean. Amenities are also good. The duvet was clearly excellent quality but was far too warm - a lighter one for summer months would be a good idea. There was a nespresso machine but no pods in the welcome pack. The welcome pack was insufficient for two breakfasts for two people (only 2 coffee bags and 2 sugars - had to buy extra) and would have expected fresh milk for this price. TV didn't work as per welcome pack instructions. Checkout time of 10am is a little early. Having said all of that, these are minor issues and we had a lovely stay and would definitely recommend.

Stays York Replied:

Thank you very much for taking the time to review the property. We are really pleased to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay. With reference to your feedback, we will ensure that there are some Nespresso pods left for our guests and will update the operating instructions for the TV. As the apartment is self catering the welcome bags are a small gift from ourselves that include some coffee, tea and treats to welcome you to the property and ensure that you have something to get your holiday off to the right start. We hope that the above will ensure that future guest will fully enjoy their stay with us and we hope to welcome you back to York in the not too distant future.

A beautiful apartment in a great location right in the centre of York, loved it all and especially the heated floor in the bathroom and the electric blinds were great. Very clean and well equipped with everything you may need, the instructions manual was very clear and easy to understand as were the directions to locate and access the apartment.

Great location for a stay in York. Great location and a lovely old building that's been nicely refurbished with the addition of some modern features like keyless entry and under-floor heating in the bathroom.
