Seasonal markets, with all their vibrant stalls and exciting atmosphere are just steps away. At our apartment, your really couldn't get more central. Yet, up on the top floor, with wide panoramic views of York's higgledy piggledy rooftops, you will experience spacious and calm "loft-living". Situated down one of the city's famous snickleways, Peter Lane, the apartment welcomes you into a spotless and gracious interior and the hubbub of the city retreats. Our very central location means we don't park onsite but we can offer free parking for 1 car about 7 minutes walk from the apartment. For extra cars we can provide full details of city car parks to suit various budgets. We are not a business running multiple holiday lets. We maintain, clean and prepare the apartment for you ourselves, so we can be sure everything is as perfect as possible and presented to the highest standards. We leave an information booklet in the apartment giving details on how everything works and guidance on where to eat, buy groceries and see the sights. We also have a box of leaflets on the tourist attractions and plenty of maps. And of course will do our best to answer any questions you may have. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: .

York 2023
This was my second visit to this apartment and I can only say it was as fantastic as it was the first time. I was with my husband and friends and I’m so happy that they loved it as much as I do! The apartment building itself is very secure and once you are inside is very quiet and peaceful. The beds are very comfortable and we all had great sleeps. I love a bath and I made good use of the big deep one in the main bedroom. I love the big windows in the bedroom and sitting area. Liz has a great eye for decor which flows throughout the apartment, everything is very tasteful. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The little touches of fresh flowers was really lovely as was the milk, prosecco, tea, coffee and cake! Liz really has an eye for detail and it’s all these little things that make your stay and the apartment more special. The location itself is really the best with everything on your doorstep. The information provided before our stay snd also the information book in the apartment is really useful and we tried a few recommendations! Lucia’s, Cote, Bengali and a few bars were all excellent! Liz made us feel so welcome and nothing is too much trouble. This is part of the reason we will visit again! Cannot wax lyrical about how amazing our trip was, we loved York snd we love the apartment and cannot wait to visit again soon.

Amazing gem .
This was our 3rd visit and there will be many more to come. I can honestly say you couldn’t ask for a better host , Liz goes out of her way to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible with the special little touches like fresh flowers in vases throughout the apartment. Milk , biscuits for a cuppa, Betty’s buns and Prosecco. The apartment is beautiful, inviting and very clean with everything you could possibly need. It’s in the very heart of York with shops restaurants and the minster within a few minutes walk but very quiet and relaxing when you close the door . I would recommend for everyone to come stop in this GEM .

wonderful - as ever!
We’ve been staying in 21 Popeshead Court for many years. It is not only clean and welcoming, with goodies in the fridge and the cupboards, but Liz makes sure everywhere sparkles. There are extra pillows, blankets and anything else you might need (4 umbrellas in the cupboard!) And she is so helpful. Can we come a bit early? Can we stay on a bit? Nothing is ever too much trouble. In fact, she sets such a high standard that when we have to stay in another town, we are invariably disappointed.

A tranquil sanctuary in a vibrant city
A perfectly located modern well-maintained apartment, we really enjoyed our stay and Liz had thought of everything we would need. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

We couldn't have chosen better
5 of us stayed here recently for the weekend to celebrate a 50th birthday. We chose it because of it's location, right in the heart of York, yet tucked away from the noise in the evening. The icing on the cake was that it had a lift which was ideal for older members of the party as we were on the top floor. The apartment itself is fantastic 2 double bedrooms (One en-suite) as well as a very comfortable double bed settee up on a mezzanine level in the lounge. There were plenty of plates/cutlery/utensils if we wished to self cater but York has plenty of fine restaurants and we ate out Liz provided some tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and even a bottle of Prosecco which was a lovely touch. The whole party really enjoyed the weekend and we've already recommended the apartment to other family and friends. From my first contact (prebooking) with Liz she was fantastic and going forward always quick to respond to any questions we had. We were initially a little late to arrive for check in to meet Liz and get the keys etc, again nothing was too much trouble. When visiting York again for the weekend we would always look to return to Popeshead Court!

Fabulous apartment
2 couples stayed for 2 night stay in this emmaculate apartment. Everything catered for. Fabulous location. Owners have thought of everything and were so helpful with everything. Would thoroughly recommend. Might be a bit of a squeeze if more than four in the booking.

Map
About the neighbourhood
York is a wonderful compact city with much history. There is a wealth of information to be found on the internet. We are located very centrally making us an ideal place to base yourselves to visit out beautiful city. The apartment is amazingly quiet despite its central position, as it is located on the top floor of the building which itself if set back from the street down one of the ancient snickleways for which the city is famous. You are literally steps away from the city’s top sights, attractions, bars shops and restaurants. Our location is much praised in all our feedback.
Getting around
York is small and the centre is pedestrian only, so plan to see everything on foot. Everyone does. You’ll only need a car, bus or taxi if travelling away from the city or to somewhere outside the main city area, such as the racecourse. (Although that is perfectly doable on foot if you don’t mind walking). For getting here, the train is ideal and we are a short and easy walk from the station. Trains from London are frequent and fast, travel time is about 2 hours. If you come by car we offer you free parking in a private car park just seven minutes walk away. This will save a lot of money as York parking charges are quite high.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
We provide full directions of how to reach us by car, (either with or without a sat nav). You are guided to the nearby carpark and have a map and walking directions for the short 7 minute walk to the apartment. Being very central, our apartment is governed by York foot-street hours, so vehicular access directly to the apartment is possible only before 10:30am and after 5pm.For those arriving by train we send a map and walking directions.
