Ideal as a City Break, this newly refurbished apartment offers stunning riverside views in a peaceful, central location. Two double bedrooms, bathroom, living/dining room and separate kitchen.
Situated in a newly refurbished mill, our 2-bedroom apartment is furnished to a high standard as a home from home, with light-oak furniture and fresh linen. It offers both comfort and convenience and an outlook directly onto the river so that you can just relax and watch the boats passing by and the tourists feeding the geese and swans.
Just a short walk (5 minutes) to the busy shops and historic city centre. Walk down the famous medieval street, ‘The Shambles’ leading to the magnificent cathedral, York Minster. Visit one of the many galleries and museums including the Jorvic Centre which provides a realistic and graphic experience of what life was like during the Viking occupation.
For a different view of the city, take a river cruise or dare yourself to join the nightly Ghost Walk (suitable for children) and learn some of the grizzly secrets of York’s past.
Enjoy an evening out dining at one of the many excellent restaurants or have a pint of beer in an Olde English pub and then dance the night away at a Nightclub. There are Theatres, an Opera House and a specialist Film Theatre with programmes to suit all tastes.
Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool and even London are all reachable within a day by train. The seaside town of Scarborough is reachable in under an hour.
Unfortunately there is no on-site car-parking at the apartment but free overnight parking is available from 6pm to 8am on the riverside beneath the apartment windows (please observe the strict times). Daytime parking is possible on the neighbouring streets but there is a fee for this. Free on-street parking is possible a short distance away but this would involve a walk of about 15 minutes back to the apartment. There are, however, two bicycles available for your use, as there are pleasant cycle paths alongside the river.
York Opera House, providing a varied programme to suit all tastes, is directly opposite the apartment on the other side of the river.
River cruises leave regularly from the quayside across the river.
Historic walks and talks as well as several museums and galleries.
Walk along the walls that surround the old city of York and enjoy the spectacular views.
Popular clubs and pubs are just a short walk away.
Many restaurants to choose from.
3-screen cinema showing a variety of films ranging from the latest releases to specialist independent productions.
Cycle pathways around the city and along the river (2 bicycles available).
At least five golf courses to play (transport required to get there).
