“Flat ideally located for visiting York,great flat and well equipped”
Reviewed 4 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

15 mins walk from city centre. parking space and all the essentials needed for a comfortable relaxing stay. Quiet location off the road in shared block. corner shop and Chinese/chip shop very close to flat. loved the milk, bread and butter left for use and didn't need to rush out to buy supplies on first day. Would recommend this flat and would definitely use again when visiting York.

“Lovely flat, excellent location.”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We think Foss flat is more than excellent value for money. It is a well presented flat that gives you just that little bit more! Having York such a short walk away meant that we could forget the car and enjoy the city by foot. Would definitely recommend.

“Delightful cosy apartment centrally located”
Reviewed 11 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

My husband and I spent 3 days in York in this beautifully clean, warm and cosy apartment. It's located only a short walk from the walled city with so much to see and do. The apartment has everything you need so if the weather is very poor, you could happily snuggle up on the sofa and watch TV or a DVD with a home cooked meal. We were warmly welcomed by Chris, who showed us around and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely return.

“Amazing Little Flat”
Reviewed 24 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have had a wonderful 4 night stay at this amazing little flat. So much thought and detail has gone into it. It is well furnished with everything you need for a holiday, bed and sofa so comfortable.Kitchen well equipped, loads of hot water and warm and cosy as the nights were getting a bit cooler About a 15 min walk into centre but a good half hourly bus service nearly drops you at door if you are a bit weary after exploring York.Thank you to Chris the housekeeper who welcomed us. Will definitely book again.

“Perfect Place to Stay”
Reviewed 28 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Very Well Kept Flat, 5 Min Drive to Asda and Aldi superstores, Sainsburys a 5Min walk,
York is a very easy 10Min walk with pubs on the way.

The flat has everything you need for a perfect city break and a bonus with the parking space although a tight squeeze,

We wouldn't hesitate at all to book again

“Lovely little flat”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Very nice, clean and comfortable. Very well equipped and nice to have bread and milk supplied. Good location as easy walk to centre. Having a parking space is a definite plus. However the bed may need a new mattress as woke each morning with a sore back.

Management Response

The whole flat was kitted out last year, so the bed and mattress (Warren Evans) are only 15 months old. We're sorry that you found the mattress uncomfortable. We'll make sure that it is turned regularly.

“ideal, well equipped place for a couple, 15 min easy walk from city centre”
Reviewed 21 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Just returned from a 4 night stay here, stopped with my young daughter. Flat was very clean, equipped with everything you would need, & importantly both a comfy bed & sofa. Owner provides lots of helpful information & milk, tea, coffee, sugar & bread are all provided, which is a lovely touch. There is also a supply of cleaning materials, cooking oil, spices to use, which again is thoughtful, as it can be frustrating to buy something to only use a small amount. There is a parking space provided (invaluable in York) & is a pleasant walk along the river into the city (15 minutes with a reluctant 8 year old!) Flat was warm, cosy but not cramped & quiet, although not for you if stairs are a problem (1st floor flat up about 15 steps). We will definitely return next time we visit York, excellent value for money, thanks again.
