We enjoyed this spacious apartment with well-appointed kitchen, large living room, excellent wifi and 2 bathrooms! This area of York, opposite the race course, is 15 minutes walk (or you can take a bus) from the centre of the city. There are plenty of green places and quieter roads to explore and we even watched 2 hot air balloons take off on our first evening. The owner very kindly texted us to make sure we had everything we needed during the week.
We stayed for a couple of days with our dogs and it was a perfect location for them to be taken out for a quick walk due to a park very close by. If you are staying for the race course then you couldn't be much closer and the city centre and other local attractions are within 15 mins car journey.
The apartment is really well furnished with a nice homely feel and good kitchen facilities for self catering. There was some bread and eggs for us on our arrival and the cupboards had some condiments etc, which was a nice touch as it meant you didn't have to buy everything if you wanted to rustle up a quick snack.
Bed was very comfortable and it was also very quiet so we had a good night sleep during our stay. If we were to make the trip again we would definitely look to book here for a second stay as it suited our needs perfectly and Helen was exceptionally friendly and helpful in her communication before and during our stay.
Ideally situated in a peace full location. Great to go to York by bus. Only cost a £1.00 one way, and no cost for dogs. (No 4 Bus to get every 10min)
Apartment very clean, well fitted with everything you may need. Excellent value for money. Thank you for leaving bread and milk and eggs for us. Good walks for dogs, racecourse right opposite the apartment and a great pub there too.
Had a lovely time
Thank you, will be back.
Clean and everything you need. Ideally situated for both city and surrounding areas. Nothing to add to previous reviews which we based our choice on.
The apartment was excellent, exactly like the photos and very quiet. Alison the owner is a pleasure to deal with and even left some bread and eggs for us to use. Perfect stay. We will be back.
We are keen racegoers and this apartment was very close to the racecourse. A ten minute walk in fine weather but rather longer, as we found to our cost, if heavy rain forces you into the car. Getting back through almost grid locked traffic took an age! We found it very useful to have the two bathrooms and the dressing area was a good place to store cases etc. Some storage room in the bedroom would have been useful. Comfortable, if a little gloomy, living room. Excellent, speedy wifi. Decent television with freeview stations.
The local Coop was about a ten minute walk away and provided most of what we needed including daily newspapers. Didn't try going into town centre because it would have taken too long to get back for the start of racing.
We had an enjoyable evening and meal in the Cross Keys pub just beyond the Coop. Great, friendly atmosphere, good staff and (very) hearty food.
