This apartment has everything one could wish for in a rental apartment from the warmth of the welcome by its owners to the immaculate condition of the place. It has quality furniture and fittings and the range of kitchen utensils is remarkable for a holiday let.
It's bright and airy with french doors leading to a small patio with garden furniture. There is a Sainsburys next door but the apartment is equipped with basics such as milk, bread,butter, tea, coffee, salt, pepper, soap, tissues,and toilet roll, so you don't need to rush out to shop. There is secure parking. The location is wonderful; just outside the city walls and within easy walking distance to all attractions in York. We especially appreciated the fact that it was quiet. I think I can say it was the best holiday let that we have ever stayed in and great value for money. Thank you Mary and Phillip for running a superb establishment.

Spotlessly clean, short walk to shops, Minster and bus stop. Very well equipped and the courtyard was an unexpected delight, had the weather been kinder we would have made full use of it. We thought it might be cramped with 3 single beds but it wasn't, we all agreed it was a lovely apartment, a beautiful city and we look forward to our next visit!

“Fabulous apartment.”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is our second visit to one of Mary and Philip's properties and we were not disappointed. We received a very warm welcome and the scones and goodies on arrival were much appreciated after a long journey.

The property itself is perfect. Ideally situated - just minutes from the town centre- with a parking space and a garden. What more could you ask for. It is also very well appointed with absolutely everything you could possibly need. The perfect place to stay when visiting York, we fully recommend staying here (or at Monks Retreat - Philip and Mary's other property).

Prompt and friendly service. The property is located in a quiet area in an imposing, recently renovated building, within a few minutes walk of the Minster. A Sainsbury's Supermarket is within a short walking distance from the apartment. Private parking is available. The friendly owner met us on arrival, showing us through the property. Nice touches were scones and jam, parkin, milk etc. awaiting us on our arrival. The property is in an immaculate condition. The ceilings are high and windows large. The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances and a coffee filter, but does not have a dishwasher. The lounge has a large flat screen TV with decoder. We did not make use of the mini Hi-Fi.

“excellent first trip away with our 10 month old”
Reviewed 28 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We arrived for our first trip away with our ten month old daughter and were greated with an afternoon tea for us and a little chocolate bird for her, which she immediately devoured!The apartment is immaculately clean with every utensil you could possibly need in the kitchen, and a travel cot and high chair were provided which was a great help to us. There is even access to the apartment through a side door which was much easier with a pushchair. It is in a great location within easy walking distance of the tourist attractions in the centre of York. We would definitely stay here again.
