Welcome to Skyview Retreat - A fantastic example of a 2 bedroom apartment that’s at the very pinnacle of holiday let properties in the city.

Ryedale House is an exclusive, private development in the heart of York’s historic core beside the River Foss. Skyview Retreat sits on the 5th floor and offers skyline views over parts of the city and a great view of open skies over the rooftops of York to the distant Howardian Hills. The property benefits from full, professional interior design throughout and does not fail to impress.

The tech savvy will no doubt be impressed by the lightening quick fibre WiFi that offers typical download speeds of 600Mbps and upload speeds of 100Mbps. The TV is an LG OLED 55" smart TV with logged in service for Netflix, Amazon Prime, BBC iPlayer and all catch up services plus Freeview.

Upon entering the open plan lounge, kitchen and dining area for the first time you will be immediately struck by the amazing amount of natural light coming into the apartment from the floor to ceiling windows. The property occupies a corner position on the building which aids this.

The kitchen area has been designed to the highest standards and features premium Neff appliances such as the oven and induction hob, fridge freezer and dishwasher. There's also a high end Smeg toaster and kettle plus a lovely DeLonghi espresso machine. There is a large island unit and bespoke worktop creating a sophisticated and contemporary living space with breakfast bar seating for 2.

The dining area can seat 4 for dinner and occupies a lovely corner position in the room that’s just perfect for taking in the views of the city or a spot of people watching! There's a floor to ceiling sliding window with Juliet balcony too. The high quality engineered hardwood floors throughout the apartment also have the added benefit of underfloor heating with smart controls.

The master bedroom contains a king size bed, feature wallpaper and large wardrobe. The bedroom also has a fully tiled ensuite complete with underfloor heating and walk in shower.

The second bedroom of the apartment again features a king size bed. Both the bedrooms benefit from having USB sockets near the beds and high quality carpets throughout.

The beds in both bedrooms are King size 150cm* 200cm with "Which" award winning 'Emma' mattresses.

The main bathroom in the apartment is again fully tiled with underfloor heating and features a spacious, luxury walk in shower.

The apartment also has the added benefit of a secure, allocated car park space onsite.

Children welcome over 8 years old.

Skyview Retreat is a wonderful apartment located within the prestigious Ryedale House in Central York. I was impressed from the start with the sophistication, the views, the high-end concierge and the quality of the apartment. Stays York ensured the apartment was clean and all provisions were on hand. Will definitely be back!

Brilliant apartment, very modern comfortable and spacious main room with a pleasnt outlook from the 5th floor. Every item you might need and all in perfect order. Good position in York for walking into the main area in just 5-10 mins but enough away from the centre to be not too rowdy at night. Our second stay at Skyview which makes returning from prolonged hikes around York's busy street that much more enjoyable, Apartment block very secure and the large modern reception hall with manned reception desk could put many a high class hotel to shame. All in all a very pleasant apartment. Just one minor niggle and why I marked 4 for cleanliness perhaps a little unfairly. One of the bath mats was folded as if laundered but it had large dirty marks on it. There will always be the occassional errors in any busy system, next day we happened to be passing Stays York Office and popped in to report. Thirty minutes later while walking the city walls Stays York phoned to again apologise and say that a clean bathmat had been left at the apartment.

Perfect in every way

This place was fantastic in both style and location. Very welcoming space in the living room with lovely large windows and the place was outfitted with everything we needed for a beautiful week's stay. Stayed here with a 1 yr old baby and felt perfectly at home. he loved running around the kitchen island and having all the space to play freely without being worried about topping things over.

Perfect apartment for a break in York

We stayed in Skyview Retreat for three nights at the beginning of May whilst attending our daughter's graduation. The apartment was perfect, spotless, comfortable and in the ideal location. We will be back. Sorry about losing the parking permit!

Wonderful stay in York

The apartment was just as lovely as I'd hoped when booking. The floor to ceiling windows gave lovely views. The apartment was well maintained - very clean and comfortable. The communal areas were also excellent - beautifully maintained and very clean. It was a real bonus to have a parking space. Thank you for a lovely base when visiting York.

Everything is great. Next time we will stay here again . Comfort, space, no problems with settling in, cleanliness, beautiful view from the windows, close location to the city centre, warmth and comfort in the bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen (there is enough utensils for cooking), etc. All new. Everything is excellent!

Lovely luxury apartment only a short walk to the town centre and all it's historic buildings.

A great place to relax. The apartment is absolutely stunning - designer everything. It was largely immaculate (literally spotless) with a couple of very small exceptions, noted below. Smeg kettle and toaster, no less. Beautiful bathrooms and bedrooms with an open plan living room with dining area, kitchen, living area and floor to ceiling windows. Lovely welcome pack. Short walk to the attractions of York.
