Located just a stone's throw away from York Minster, this charming 1 bedroom property is something of a hidden retreat.

It benefits from being set just off the street of Gillygate and enjoys all the benefits of being just a minutes' walk from the very heart of the city centre. Once you access the door on street, the entrance porch way transfers you to something of a hidden gem right by the city walls.

The property benefits from having an enclosed patio area at the rear that has views of the city walls and a charming garden area complete with beehive. Almost unheard of for a city centre property!

Inside the ground floor apartment itself there is a spacious lounge area with dining table. A fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine. The bedroom comes complete with a king size bed and the bathroom features a walk in shower.

Fantastic location! Nice little flat. Adequately equipped. Big comfy bed. Garden to look out at as well as part of city wall. CouldnÂ’t sit on terrace because of bees all around beehive in garden. Second visit so we knew all about access. Arrived on rubbish day so passage way a mess and difficult to access by disabled. Still no stool in the bathroom.

Great accommodation

This was our second visit.Apartment is like a home from home.Location only minutes away from city centre ,yet very quiet. Pretty garden view(although grass could have done with a cut).We really enjoyed our stay.

Great location, walking distance to all the main attractions.

Excellent location. Loved the fact we were in the city centre but once the front door was closed we could have been in the country !

A lovely place to stay in the centre of York. It's a large one bedroom flat with a decent sized garden. You would never know you were next door to a pub. It's so quiet. It is truly a home from home a lovely comfortable feel about it. I definitely would stay here again if returning to York.

Cosy, spacious apartment with every amenity and very central. Everything was so cosy and clean and excellent! A wonderful, flexible space, perfectly situated. We’d stay here again in a heartbeat!

Good stay with some issues, most of which were addressed by agent, but not all.

To enhance the stay which we enjoyed, we would make the following minor comments: Limited kitchen equipment; Advertised coffee maker not working; The flat is not ideally suited to disabled people because - its Exterior access was poor - restricted with refuse and paint pots- untidy; Not ideal on arrival because correct door was not marked - sign on correct door needed; Back door blind not functioning; Bedroom overlooked from pub; Lovely flat - these small improvements would enhance the stay. Very enjoyable fortnight.

Nice stay but not quite as good as expected

We had a great week in York staying at the Annex and would consider staying there again but there were areas that did not meet our expectations and we would probably look for something else nearby. The house is comfortable and well furnished and the location in terms of visiting York attractions probably could not be beaten. It was however the outside space that sold the property to us and unfortunately there were some issues. The wild garden look at the rear of the garden by the amazing city walls was great and the beehives really interesting with the old walled turret a unique view, however the patio was covered with weeds and dead flowers (someone must have come in on the 6th day and just pulled out the worst of these), the grass was unkempt, uncut all week with quite a lot of old animal excrement and in general there was broken pots and bin liners full of who knows what strewn around the garden. For awareness the garden is sandwiched between a pub garden (pub was quiet and very pleasant) and a Vegan kebab restaurant outside area, there is some noise during the day but it was never a nuisance and for us tended to enhance sitting out there (that with people looking over the walls) made sitting out quite atmospheric Inside there is nice furniture, plenty of room, a comfortable large bed, good tv and an excellent shower. Only complaints is the large beautiful old wardrobe but with just a single hanger (no parking so most people would I guess travel by train and not bring their own) and the cafetiere was not cleaned from the previous guest (apart from this the cleaning had been very good). Reading this back it comes out as more negative than intended. It is a nice apartment with a close to unique outside area that just needs the real selling point of the garden cleaned up and better maintained. Hence I would recommend subject to this caveat

“The Annexe was immaculately clean, spacious, well appointed, warm and comfortable. It was a great location within easy walking distance of the Minster and other places of interest and restaurants. The host was very helpful with quick responses to any queries we had. Highly recommended.”

Loved the apartment and York and look forward to returning soon. Excellent location, just outside the city walls, close to restaurants and bars and a Sainsbury's Local, you wouldn't really know it was there at all. Good pub, The Gillygate next door, maybe too close for us as we like a few scoops! The apartment was lovely, comfortable and well appointed with a nice seating area out the back looking up at the historic walls. We would definitely stay here again when we return to York.

This beautifully appointed apartment has a beautiful garden and patio in the back yard. The glass doors out to it full the living room with a relaxing view right in the centre of York. You can walk to museums and the cathedral and my husband used a walker. groceries were close. Ancient city arches and walls. It was a trip through time in York, starting before the Romans were there. I would definitely stay here again. The management staff was very helpful and nice

The Annex is a fabulous place to stay when visiting York. It is spacious and very comfortable with your own patio area over looking the garden and the stork wall. Lovely little cafes very nearby. It is a 5 min walk to get into the York walls and the attractions that York has to offer. We would love to stay here again and will be recommending to all friends.
