This ground-floor apartment sits 2 miles from the centre of the walled city of York and is perfect for couples wanting to explore the city and surrounding countryside.  The city is the capital of Yorkshire and offers an eclectic mix of pubs, restaurants, shops, tearooms, the infamous Minster and cobbled streets leading to many historical monuments. The apartment also has easy access for venturing further afield towards the Yorkshire coast, the Dales, visiting lovely market towns or walking in the North Yorkshire Moors. An array of National Trust properties are on the doorstep in addition to Goddards, Benningborough Hall, Dalby Forest, Go Ape and the beautiful Castle Howard.

Once a farmhouse, this conversion is contemporary, compact living at its best. Light and airy throughout, it has everything you'll need for a comfortable stay on the outskirts of a popular city. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is practical and comfortable. The well equipped kitchen has everything you'll need to rustle up a meal, electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher and microwave, whilst the two-seater sofa is perfect for snuggling up in front of the TV of an evening. The double bedroom is stylish and clean, with plenty of storage and the wet room-style shower room completes the accommodation.

The ground floor apartment was very well appointed with allocated offroad parking alongside.A choice of several buses from a stop nearby took us into York so we rarely needed to use the car.A perfect location for access to the city , the racecourse , Goddards (NT) across the road and the Fox and Roman on the doorstep.

The availability of one bus or another every few minutes, and the proximity of bus stops, made York so accessible. And this bright, peaceful little apartment was well-based for going further afield by car. Senior bus passes and National Trust membership were richly used. In one week: six NT properties, one just up the road; a ride on the North YorkRead more Moors steam train; the National Railway Museum; a taste of the breath-taking Dales' scenery; services in York Minster and Ripon Cathedral. And more. Hide

What a great little cottage, a true little gem. The location is fantastic, 5 yards from an excellent gastro pub and a beautiful 15 minute walk through the trees ,opposite the race course until you find yourself In the city centre. York itself is a must see, full of charm and dripping in history and gorgeous medieval streets. We will definitely retuRead morern and the cottage and city will always been close to our hearts as we got engaged the weekend we stayed! Hide

You will need to take toilet roll, do not get any spare rolls, in terms of warmth and comfort it was very good no issues at all. Location it is about 2 miles from city centre on a really good bus route, there is a pub on the corner but you could not hear any noise. There is quite a lot of damp on the walls but does not smell, the drain outside is bRead morelocked and fills the path with dirty water. The property looks like it is subsiding big cracks on the walls. Overall we had a nice stay. Hide

Flat was ideal for 2 - well equipped and clean and modern. Excellent pub and restaurant next door and bus stop 2 mins away going into York (2 miles) every 12 minutes (parking can be difficult/expensive). Would recommend property to anyone visiting York.
