Brilliant location

5 of 5
Stayed here with my family from a Friday to Monday as we had a family wedding in York Minster. The location was excellent and the space in the cottage for 6 adults and four wee boys was more than adequate. Our double room with en suite was very spacious. The wee garden at the rear was a bonus too. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay here again if a group of us had a weekend in York. A few of us hadn't been in York before but all agreed that we would be back there soon.

Great location right beside city walls.

4 of 5
The apartment is quite spacious with large high windows. It's therefore very light but gets very hot as the sun comes in all day. Uncomfortably warm in the mezzanine living room but there was one small fan which helped. Keeping the curtains closed during the day helped. We used the study as a bedroom - small but functional. This is downstairs and the bathroom is upstairs with very creaky stairs! Main bedroom has mezzanine bedroom directly above. Apartment is nicely decorated and 2 bath/shower rooms are so handy. Common areas are very clean and it's next door to Sainsbury's which is handy but slightly noisy at night along with the ring road. Fully equipped kitchen.
