Luxury apartment and stylishly refurbished throughout to provide a luxury finish whilst retaining 16th century original features and boasting views of York Minster and great attractions on the doorstep

In this stylish period apartment, you will be perfectly situated in the city centre to explore the ancient walled city and all its attractions by foot. The history-rich city has become somewhat of a cultural and commercial oasis over the years boasting a vast collection of independent shops, charming eateries and welcoming restaurants and pubs, offering a wonderful trip to be enjoyed by the whole family. Located just by the famous York Minster and The Shambles are within walking distance. Visit the renowned Betty’s Tea Rooms, Clifford’s Tower, enjoy a riverboat cruise down the River Ouse and see the city from a different perspective. Venture further afield towards the Yorkshire coast, the Dales, visiting lovely market towns or walking in the North Yorkshire Moors.

Enter the property past the Artisan delicatessen below up to the first-floor apartment and into the open-plan kitchen/diner, with space for coats and boots by the doorway. You will have the feeling of entering a piece of history with lovingly restored period features throughout the 16th Century property. Prepare a meal in the well-equipped kitchen, with bespoke kitchen units, induction oven and hob, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher. Enjoy your meal around the dining table with seating for everyone or enjoy a relaxed meal for two at the breakfast bar. Also on this floor is the lounge, with traditional handmade furniture and period features, ideal for relaxing after a long day enjoying a day’s shopping or exploring in the city with friends and family. Catch up with a programme on the TV, or play a tune on the piano whilst others snuggle in front of the open fire. On this floor you will also find the first of the bedrooms, a King-size bed with wooden panelling on the walls and views towards York minster. Heading upstairs you will find a double bedroom with period features including oak beams. Completing this floor is the shower room with shower cubicle and WC.

The jewel in North Yorkshire's crown, we think York is one of the best short break destinations in England and is a favourite amongst even the most seasoned of travellers. This ancient walled city has been the north's spiritual capital for 2,000 years, but that's not to say it is stuck in the past; York's affluent population and its influx of tourist pounds has helped to create a cultural and commercial oasis. History seeps out of every cobbled street, but the crooked old buildings house a fantastic range of contemporary designer shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Everywhere in York is easily reachable by foot as this small but perfectly formed city houses most of its main attractions within the city walls. Middle Ages' town planning means it can take quite some time to get your bearings but finding your way around the labyrinth of warped streets is part of the fun. Make sure you take in York Minster, The Shambles, the Railway Museum and Betty's tea room whilst you're there.

If you are looking for outside space in which to relax, you have the choice of a number of parks and gardens, including Dean's Park next to the Minster, the Yorkshire Museum Gardens and next to the River Ouse, and slightly further afield, Rowntree Park with its children's playground, tennis courts and bowling green.

And what's more, it really is a year-round location. Summer days can be spent lounging in one of the gorgeous parks and in the autumn, York comes alive with shop windows sparkling in the dusky light. Its central location also makes a great base from which to explore the rest of glorious Yorkshire, with the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and Yorkshire Coastline all within easy reach for beautiful walks and adventurous days out.

If walking or cycling is your thing, there are lots of beautiful paths and routes in the area. If you fancy serious hiking, the North York Moors landscape offers some of the best trails in the country. Take a trip up to the top of the high moorlands around Blakey Ridge (42 miles) and breathe in that clear Yorkshire air.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley (24.5 miles) is within easy driving distance and is well worth a visit. Head 18 miles east to find Malton, another gorgeous market town offering lots of lovely independent shops and cafes to indulge in, or the charming market town of Easingwold is a great option at 13 miles from the city.
