About Nigel Smith
My wife and I are both professionals and currently live in the USA. We have four boys and Blake Mews is our holiday home in the UK. We only get to use it a couple of weeks per year so we hope you enjoy it!
Nigel Smith purchased this Townhouse in 2007
Why Nigel Smith chose York
An award winning small development in the heart of this historic city with views of York Minster. For overseas visitors, York is a great base from which to explore the UK with London and Edinburgh readily accessible by direct trains (just 2 hours to London). Leave the car at home and enjoy a break in this lively city. Blake Mews is a modern town house that was developed to a high standard in 2007. The mews is safe and secure but in the center of town. Linens etc. are provided. The kitchen is well equipped but with all of York's restaurants and bars so close at hand you may never use it. Fantastic location for a weekend break or holiday with older children. Property sleeps 4 adults and 4 children in a bunk room. Winner of York Design Awards, 2008.

Superb location, good sized property would strongly recommend
A superb location - only a few seconds from the Minster, this property is ideal for a family looking to visit York. A good sized house over three levels it would accommodate a large family easily. Well equipped and with good sized rooms this was a comfortable place to stay for a week. The management company were excellent and when there was a problem with the alarm it was fixed very quickly with a follow up call the next day to check that everything was ok. We loved our stay in York and this property really added to the visit.
Literally around the corner from Princess St. And 2 short blocks from the train station. Loads and loads of steps but these got easier to climb after a couple of days. Very basic basics were provided. Watch for low ceilings in corners . Lovely views. Enjoyed our stay.
Really very charming.
A beautiful modern hideaway. And it has a wonderful neighbor who was very helpful. Nigel, your place is a hidden gem. Thank you, Randall
Beautiful apartment in York
We loved this apartment in the heart of York. It was like our hideaway in the city. The apartment is furnished with anything you might need and had beautiful views from the master bedroom. We could walk basically anywhere in downtown York. Some days it was just awesome to sit and listen to the bells of the Minster chiming. The only down side is the noise from the downtown party people from 1-3am.
Brilliant location in a lovely historical City
Second time visit for us (family of 5). The property is high spec in a great location by the Minster. Apart from a trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Gardens near Wakefield we just parked the car up and walk every where we wanted to visit. As we drove out of York we were discussing when we would be back.
Comfortable, modern house in the perfect location.
Blake Mews is a beautiful house in the perfect location. Hidden behind a secret door in the centre of historic York, it is spacious, clean and full of all the modern amenities and home comforts you could wish for. You can see York Minster from the bed in the main bedroom and the roof terrace outside, and listen to the bells - don't worry, not at night. You are seconds away from the streets of the city with all its shops, bars, restaurants, museums and historic sights and, most importantly, a short stroll from Betty's Tea Rooms. There is plenty to do in the city for grown ups and kids, but drive out and you'll find fabulous countryside, country houses and the ruins of castles and abbeys. My family and I spent a very lovely few days at Blake Mews celebrating a birthday with a zero in it. It softened the blow magnificently.
Glad you had a great time - thanks for posting the the review.
