Bedsit apartment in the converted attic of Victorian terraced townhouse near York city centre. The house is only minutes from the train station, racecourse, and the historic city walls. The flat has its own kitchen and private bathroom.

The space

The attic room would comfortably accommodate a couple. There is a double bed, a small dining table with seating for two and a fully equipped kitchen with washing machine.

The flat is accessed through the main house, so guests will have access to the internal corridors. The rest of the house is private.

At least one family member will be resident during guest stays. We will be around for assistance, advice and recommendations.

The proximity to all local amenities is fantastic. We can walk to the city centre in minutes, where there is always something happening. Similarly we are very close to York's famous historical attractions, such as the Minster, Cliffords Tower and Castle Museum; you walk through, and can walk along, the Medieval City walls to get to and from the Centre. In the other directions we are a short walk from the famous Knavesmire racecourse, Rowntrees Park and the river Ouse. Further afield, but within an hour, lie the North York's Moors and the Yorkshire Dales.

The train station is only a few moments walk - within 500m when the station car park rear gate is open - so getting out to explore more of Yorkshire is easy. There are train links into the Moors, Dales and the Peak district. The road and rail network give easy access to Leeds Bradford and Manchester airports. York lies close to terrific motorway links such as the M1/A1, M62 and A19. Unfortunately like many Cities, parking is restricted but there are plenty of car parks and areas to use. The nearest car park is at the railway station. We can assist and advise if needed.

Tea and coffee provided.
Towels provided.

We had a lovely stay. John was easy to communicate with for check in. The location was great - close to train station and city walls. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Highly recommended!

Lovely bedsit in a very handy location in wonderful York. Claire was out of town and we were met by her friend Sara. Our train was delayed by 75mins and we had cell phone issues that made it hard to communicate this, but Sara waited patiently to meet us which was much appreciated.

John's attic is ideally situated a stones throw away from a nice local pub, mini market and both bus stops and the train station. You can walk into central York in less than 10 minutes but there's also plenty of entertaining places to visit en route. The house itself is easy to find and long stay parking is available at the train station car park (NOT THE NCP). The house and attic are nicely decorated and well kept. I can't imagine you'd need anything extra during your stay as the attic has it all really and has been well thought out. Thanks John for making our trip a memorable one and we hope to visit again in the future.

We had a great time exploring York with this apartment as our base. It is lovely and clean and cosy, and John is a very discreet host. The location is great - close to the station and various pubs/cafes. We had an excellent weekend.

This attic apartment is the perfect size for two and comes equipped with anything you might need for a comfortable stay. The location which is incredibly close to the train station was super convenient for day trips, plus a short walk to anything else in the center of town. The bed was quite comfy and the bathroom spacious, with good water pressure. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a pleasant place to stay in York!

This is a lovely apartment. Everything is spotlessly clean and very well organised, we had everything we needed! It's a very convenient location, so close to the station and into town yet quiet at night. Would definitely recommend staying here. John was also an excellent and helpful host! Thanks again
