York riverside apartment.

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Central location with stunning views of the river Ouse set in refurbished mill.

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.

Stylish comfortable and perfect position

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had a wonderful week. The apartment was well appointed. Comfortable, and stylish. It was just across the river from the centre of York, and it was easy to walk to all attractions. There were a couple of small grocery stores within a block of the apartment. When we were not exploring all that Edinburgh has to offer, we could watch life on the river from the lounge room and one bedroom window. As other reviewers have noted, there is some noise from the pubs over the river, but not really a significant issue- apart from reminding us of our advancing years! The owner and her cleaner made checking in very smooth. I would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I note that you mention Edinburgh, which I believe is your next destination, hence your confusion. We look forward to your return visit.

Great property but bait and switch on price

  • 4 of 5

This is a great base for a York holiday. My wife, daughter and I really enjoyed the central location and the well-appointed flat. The flat overlooks the rivers and couldn't be more central. If it is hot, there is no air conditioning so beware. Our only complaint is that once we made the initial booking, the owner came back saying it would be another 50 pounds for the two night stay. It was short notice so we sucked it up, but it left us with a bad taste.

Spacious and central

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was spacious, clean, and a 10 min walk from York centre, with buses around the corner. Apartment was well set up, bright, with great outlook over the river. It was a bit noisy in the night due to some hotels accross the river- earplugs fixed that. Supermarket around the corner, shops nearby, safe neighborhood. I was there for a week for work and it was a great base- I felt at home. Excellent book selection!

Little disappointed

  • 3 of 5

Whilst initial view of the apartment seemed good, on closer inspection the whole place is a little 'unclean' maybe we have very high standards regarding cleanliness, but the bathroom was a big let down, cobwebs in a lot of places, bin in kitchen not good and the cupboards, while there was a lot of dishes and cutlery! Were overflowing with mismatched items. Just a little disappointed! There is no wifi in the apartment, which nowadays is really a must. And the parking in York is at a premium. There are car parks close by that cost a bit to park in, but if you are happy to walk about a mile and leave your car in a side street, then the apartment is so well located for all city centre attractions you do not need to use the car for the whole time you are in York. I pointed out all the above to the owner so hopefully these issues have been sorted out now.

Owner's Response: I am very perplexed and upset to read that you were so concerned about the cleanliness of the apartment. In the visitor book most guests comment on how clean and smartly presented the apartment is. I have checked through all the crockery and removed the one item that was chipped, an egg cup. All crockery is white apart from the coffee cups. The waste bin has been replaced, this had gone unnoticed as needing to be replaced, thank you for pointing it out. Since your stay the bathroom has been refurbished with a new sink and toilet, this was on our 'to do' list once we had a week free of visitors. As you rightly point out, parking is at a premium in York. This is reflected in the price charged to stay in our apartment. This is clearly mentioned in the details. For an apartment in the centre of the city with river views and two bedrooms you would have had to pay at least 40% more than you were charged for four people, if we had parking. We take on board your comment about wifi and are endeavouring to put this right. We have visitors to the apartment all year round, from all over the world, all of whom leave excellent reviews and comments in our visitor's book. Around 40% are returning customers which speaks for itself. I can only say how very sorry we are that you were disappointed.
