How to get there
Arriving by train: The number 1 bus goes from directly outside the station and will bring you within a 5 min walk to the apartment. Arriving by car: We are approx 5 mins from the A64, take the A1237 turning for York, then at the roundabout take the 3rd turning signposted 'Foxwood' & Leisure Centre. At the mini roundabout go straight on, Grange Lane is the turning just before the next mini roundabout. The apartment is down a private lane, right at the end of Grange Lane. Please refer to map as Sat Navs have a habit of taking you to the other side of the ring road. Once on the private lane bare left over the cattle grid and follow the drive round. PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO ACCESS FROM THE A1237 RING ROAD.
