Apartment No2 is on the ground floor having recently been acquired Apartment No 4 is on the first floor. Both have wonderful views of the Minster, the Minster Song School and 13th Century Holy Trinity Church. The layout of the apartments is similar and they are furnished to the same high standard.
We holidayed in Talbot Court ourselves in 2011 and enjoyed our stay so much so that when the opportunity arose we bought Number 4 so we could offer the same wonderful experience to others. In 2014, we took the opportunity to acquire Number 2 which was the actual apartment we stayed in during 2011.
Talbot Court is in a fantastic location close to the Minster with stunning views of the 13th Century Holy Trinity Church.
The apartment is beautifully decorated in an extremely unique way. Nothing is too much for our hosts and all the little toouches from fizz, to croissants to cakes made my stay in York for my 25th birthday extremely special. Would gladly recommend to friends and definately won't stay in a hotel again !!
This apartment is A star ++++
We had a wonderful stay in this lovely cosy apartment Stephen and Christine made us feel so welcome on arrival and there thoughtfulness in making this a home from home place to stay with all the special touches ie wine cakes and chocolate etc, we have stayed in many self catering cottages but this is certainly at the top of our list.
Wonderfuy situated apt right in center of town yet quiet and peaceful, looking out over green church courtyard. Hosts left us wonderful croissants tea and coffee for our first morning. Greatly appreciated since we has just flown in. Couldnt be a more pleasant stay. Weather coorperated as well. York is a lovely city!
I don't write many reviews, but I so thoroughly enjoyed myself that this was a must do.
Stephen & Christine's apartments are great getaways right in the middle of the action in York's ancient walled city. At the same time they are very quiet and secluded. Inside the apartment everything is calm and quiet, with ability to listen to the bells from the minster, and views of the quiet private garden. But cross the courtyard and exit the secure gate and you are right in the old part of town on Low Petergate, and just steps from all the other sites. Full scores for location.
The apartment itself is very cozy, with comfortable furnishings, and a fully equipped kitchen. Everything was very clean, fully functional, and as the listing states, very modern. The care the Stephen & Christine take with the property is very evident, without imposing with "your in my house artifacts".
As hosts, Stephen and Christine made sure the apartment was fully prepped, and even took time to acquire brochures and guides specific to my interests which was very thoughtful! They responded to enquiries quickly and clearly, and also reached out to make sure that all was well without being obtrusive at all.
I will not hesitate to stay with Stephen & Christine again, and heartily recommend their properties to others.
Thank you for a great stay!
My husband and I spent a weekend with our adult daughter in 4 Talbot Court and could not have had a better experience. The apartment is utterly central yet secluded, with lovely views to the choir school and the Minster. Stephen met us on arrival and was very welcoming. The apartment is a real home from home - in fact better than home as we do not have a dish-washer at home! The kitchen has all the necessary equipment, everywhere was spotlessly clean and there were so many extra touches that made our stay special, from macaroons to fluffy dressing gowns. We highly recommend the apartment and hope to return.
Clean, quiet, and good water pressure all things were amply provided. Nice to enjoy the peace with the windows open with just the sounds of the doves and the laughing children if they are out for recess. Then walk out the front courtyard and the town is bustling with tourists but they leave by 6 PM and it's just you and the locals to enjoy pubs and restaurants. Short walk (five to fifteen min,) to everything in town. Could not ask for a better location.
Owners Stephen and Christine have created a superbly comfortable flat with every convenience a traveller could want. The generous continental breakfast provided was especially welcome after a trans-Atlantic flight. And they made it clear that any time I needed to contact them for any reason they would be available. The location right in the heart of York could not be better for exploring all the history that the city offers. Numerous restaurants are within minutes, as are a wide variety of high-end shops. Five stars is not enough for this rental!
