About Nigel Smith

My wife and I are both professionals and currently live in the USA. I was a student at the University of York and we love the city. We have four boys and The Brierley is our second holiday rental in the UK and we hope to build on the success of our first property.

Nigel Smith purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Nigel Smith chose York

This property has been renovated by the same people who built Blake Mews. The location is fantastic- right in the city center yet very quiet.

What makes this apartment unique

Concierge service available.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a beautiful apartment! We have loved our time here - thank you for all the thoughtful touches that make this such a perfect place to stay.



This was a wonderful way to start Christmas, especially the minster bells this morning.

1st Floor Luxury Apartment - Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

This first floor apartment is beautifully furnished to a very high standard but still remains extremely welcoming and comfortable and very warm and cosy. The bed linen is lovely and soft with comfy beds and there are large white fluffy towels in the bathrooms. The whole apartment including the stairs and lobby are spotless.

Located right in the city centre next to York Minster you are only a couple of minutes walk to anywhere. There are lots of restaurants and tea rooms to choose from, but try the tearooms in Mulbury Hall (fine china and ornaments) - the cinammon tea cakes are yummy.

This is an ideal place to stay if you want to explore York on foot, and I would not hesitate to recommend it.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of three could not have asked for a better place to stay during our week-long visit to York. This apartment is in a quiet, secluded little corner of York with a private gated entrance. Yet…it is only a couple of minutes from the Minster with a stunning view of it from the living room. This place comfy, roomy and beautifully renovated with many amenities: spacious living-room, stunning kitchen with every gadget imaginable, comfy beds with elegant linen, plush towels, great washer and dryer. The list goes on. Best of all, it is in a perfect location, and within walking distance of many of York's great sites. Grocery shopping is breeze with a local Sainsbury's close by. Good restaurants abound as well. The wi-fi set-up is top-rate. And so are the televisions and cable hook-ups. The list goes on. We WILL stay here again if we return to York!

5 star apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay over Christmas in this beautiful apartment. The flat is very comfortable and warm with everything you could need. The location is perfect in a quiet street with amazing views of the Minster from the living room. Shops, restaurants and train station are all within easy walking distance so we could pop in and out. We will definitely be back. Highly recommended.

Quiet luxury

  • 5 of 5

Brand new, stylish two bedroom apartment situated in the heart of York with amazing views of York Minster. The two well fitted bathrooms came in very handy. Large open plan living/dining area and fully equipped modern kitchen with everything you need for a holiday stay or longer. Incredible range of appliances, utensils, cooking and eating facilities. The location is everything you could wish for – being so close to the Minster and seeing it from the sitting room light up at night was a real treat. It was like staying in a luxury hotel. Managed to visit Betty’s Team Rooms too many times for the waistline!

Organising keys and parking with the very helpful Kimberley (the concierge) was simplicity itself.
