Cosy flat with everything you need for a long or short stay. Great that other visitors had left basic food which you could use on arrival and replace. Very quiet area, the only people you see are cyclists and dog walkers on the cycle path which you can see from the balcony. No noise from any of the other flats.
It's about 15 minutes walk to the centre of York.
A big bonus is the parking space which is always a problem in York. We were a little concerned as one of the reviews had mentioned that the space was small but there was no problem. The parking space for the flat is away from the other cars so no worries about people opening their car doors onto you. A bit of an obsession with my husband!
I would recommend this to anyone who wants a home from home base to visit York.
Fantastic little apartment for a couple, great Location only a short walk from the city walls and 3 shops less than a ten minute walk away, that flat has every thing you need for a trip away. Really enjoyed our stay here.
We had been looking for a base for the week, that had parking and within walking distance to the center of York. Foss flat is spot on!
On arrival to the flat we were met by Simon, a nice chap who manages the flats. He explained everything and had bought us some supplies, very kind.
The flat is in a small block on the first floor, 1 bed etc with balcony. All very clean and well equipped. The kitchen holds some basics on a 'use up and replace'. There is also a washer, hairdryer and iron. The shower is easy to use and a good flow.
Parking space was a little tight for the long estate car we have, however, reversing in does make it easier.
The walk to the outskirts is about 10 mins, a pleasant flat walk alongside the river complete with geese that just wander across the road without a care!
Plenty to see and do, we had ordered a York pass (keep an eye on their website as they offer them at discount)
We mainly ate lunch out and made simple dinners at the flat. There is a local shop up the road and Sainsburys is the closest food shopping centre about a 15 min walk, with Morrisons slight further.
There are several large retail parks within 10/15 mins drive.
Booking and communication with the owner was straightforward. A really lovely stay, would happily recommended.
Fantastic Flat within a 10 minute walk of the City centre. Has everything you could want and there is even a little welcome pack of bread, milk, tea etc so that you don't have to worry about that straight away.
We were very late arriving but had advised that would be the case and the chap who looks after the flat (sorry, can't remember his name!) met us there and gave us all the information we needed.
All the previous reviews I read were bang on - it is perfect on every level and I will happily go back and recommend to others.
We would definitely stay again. 5/5 for location, 5/5 for amenities and 5/5 for the ease of booking.
We have just returned from a 5 night stay in Foss Flat, our second visit. This is a very comfortable, clean and well equipped apartment - cosy too despite the cold outside! It is useful to be able to park the car and just walk into York , the bed is very comfortable and although just off a busy road the apartment is surprisingly quiet at night. We have stayed in many different places in and around York and think Foss flat represents very good value for money. We willl definitely be back for another stay
