This apartment is perfect for a short stay in York, about a 10 minute easy walk into the centre. Even closer to the railway museum and station, just a 5 minute stroll.
The apartment spotlessly clean, spacious and well equipped, even arrived to bread milk and butter.
Special thanks to Simon for being so accommodating with arrival and departure times. Can't recommend this apartment enough.
A perfect stay.
My husband and I initially found the flat as we were looking for somewhere near to the National Railway Museum for us and our two boys, aged 4 and 1.
On arrival we had a very friendly greeting and tour of the flat. The flat itself is beautifully furnished and has everything you could possibly need. I enjoy cooking, and the fully equipped kitchen was brilliant, as were the ready-stocked essentials - there was tea, coffee, butter, bread, milk etc. all ready for our arrival. Having two small children, this was great - no emergency dash to the shops required. The washer / dryer was also very handy, having two little children who seem to keep clothes clean for all of seconds.
The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. It was great that the boys had a space to play in their bedroom, so often not the case in second bedrooms. The whole flat was warm and comfortable, and I might add spotlessly clean. There is plenty of storage space, which is great when you don't want to feel like you're living out of a suitcase.
The location is superb - you have the benefit of designated parking, and it is close enough to the city centre that we could enjoy an evening stroll along the walls, or doing a tour of the city's many fine bridges (a passion of my younger son).
We will shortly be booking our next stay. We cannot thank Richard and his team enough - it really did feel like home for a week, and we couldn't have asked for more.
Very comfortable and well appointed accommodation.
Owners have thought of everything. Good location with an easy walk to the centre of York.
Great to have a parking space near the centre.
Accommodation - the double and 2 singles layout is much better than double plus sofa beds elsewhere - plus it means the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner is usable!! Comfortable and simple, ground floor a bonus. Parking space is like gold dust in York - with this place you simply park up, use your legs and hey presto you're in the Shambles, on the walls or in the shops in literally 10 minutes!
Just come back from a stay in York. And we stayed at the Mallard, it is a great place to stay for York centre, and the surrounding areas. The best part was the fact my brother has to use an electric scooter and he could get into York it self without any problems ( we were a bit worried he might have had problems) and he could go to the national train museum on his own as it is just across the road. The flat is excellent, very comfortable, on the ground floor, no steps up the main door, and flat entrance to the flat. Thank you for a great stay Richard and Simon.
The Mallard flat is a wonderfully equipped, spotless and tastefully decorated modern ground floor apartment. It lies a stones throw from the National Railway Museum, with some handy local shops just 3 minutes walk and just 10 minutes from the heart of York City.
Myself, wife, daughter and her friend had a fantastic time time in York and a big part of that was where we stayed. If we return to York as again (which I'm sure we will) the Mallard will definitely be top of our list for accommodation! and a little extra thank you goes out to the house keeper Simon, who kindly posted my daughters coat back to us.
We stayed here over Easter weekend ( 2 adults 2 kids) and were over the moon to discover this place.
It was well equipped, clean and ideally located to explore York.
The owner and housekeeper were very accommodating and we really appreciated the extras that other self catering hosts don't offer.
We will definitely be recommending to our friends and family and hope to return again soon.
Thanks for a lovely stay.
