York, North Yorkshire, England
This apartment is ideally placed and comes with its own allocated parking space. Situated just outside one of the medieval entrance gate (built on the original Roman gate foundations which can be seen in the cafe nearby)) and entrance to the city walls.

Booked this apartment for two nights and was very happy with it. The location close to York Minster is excellent and the private car park is a real bonus. Inside the accommodation was very clean, warm and comfortable (Christmas decorations were a nice touch!) and the well equipped kitchen meant we could eat in if we felt like it. Both...

Management response:

Chris many thanks for your review. Glad you enjoyed your stay in York. Its a magical place even in the Winter! David

Beautifully decorated and clean apartment with everything you may need. Kitchen was well stocked with all utensils and crockery (including sharp knives! Very rare in a holiday rental!) Walking distance from everything York has to offer, and some great pubs and food right on the doorstep.

Management response:

Matt many thanks. Glad you liked the apartment and enjoyed York.

About the neighbourhood
The Apartment is in Gillygate which is an ancient road which was part of the Roman road from the military headquarters to the North. The site of the Roman entrance is only a few yards away and is now the 13th Century arch and entrance to the City and the City Walls.

Gillygate is famous for its individual, privately owned, character shops and cafes and is a favourite of both locals and visitors.

The correct address is 8, St Giles Gate Flats, Gillygate, York YO30 7BR. The post code shown is really for the BBC York building through a car park called Bootham Row. Proceed to the entrance of BBC Radio York and carry on around the building. Watch for a very steep speed ramp. Drive slowly. You will see parking space 8 on your left. The apartment is in the left section of the apartment block. Either ring my mobile (supplied on booking) or the button by the door.

If arriving on foot or by taxi
The address is 8, St Giles Gate Flats, Gillygate, The apartment block is next to Wacker’s Restaurant. Go to the rear of the building. Either ring my mobile (supplied on booking)...
