Important Bits!:

The keys are now collected from a local shop which closes at 5PM on Fridays. This gives a greater degree of flexibility for you, our lovely guests, but obviously needs factoring in to your arrival plans. If you are planning to arrive at the weekend, then you'll be met by our brilliant housekeeper Polly.

Note on prices:

Trip advisor always advertises the cheapest nightly rate based on a 7 night stay. Usually in the low or standard season we will accept 2 night bookings at a rate of £350 plus the fee which Trip Advisor charges on top, making it around £377. However please do contact us if you want to make us an offer!

The apartment is situated right at the heart of the city of York within the city walls, in a peaceful location overlooking the ancient Merchant Adventurers Hall.

Fantastic location, right in the centre of town. Beautifully maintained, clean apartment with lovely balcony overlooking the river. Excellent communication from the owner. Our two boys (aged 6 and 9) really enjoyed the railway museum, the Jorvik Centre and Dig as well as a self-drive...More

The apartment is excellent and well presented, very comfy beds. Very helpful on arrival. They even provide a car parking pass to use - which is useful as the charges in York are surprisingly expensive. It is positioned ideally for access to the Yorvik Museum...More

About the neighborhood
Merchants Place is - as the reviews show - in a central location, about 5 minutes walk from the city centre. It is at the heart of a newly re-developed area of the town and surrounded by smart coffee shops, bars and also traditional pubs. The flat itself is slightly hidden away on the second floor of a modern apartment building, and we have found it to be peaceful and convenient, affording the ability to pop back for lunch on the balcony before getting back out to explore...but don't take our word for it, read the reviews from our guests to get a feel for the experience of others, which are in the main all 5 star!
Getting around
The flat is ideally located in the centre of town...the best way to see the sights is just to walk to them. You could get an open top bus tour around the city locally or for further afield you could walk to the rail station and go exploring!
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Manchester: 80.8 mi
Railway: York: 1.2 mi
Ferry: Hull: 49.7 mi
We provide parking in the form of a pass which affords access to a number of York city centre car parks. The best parking itself is about 2-3 minutes walk from the front door once you work out which is the optimum space (which we will tell you about in our arrival information document, sent to you on booking). We'd recommend coming on the train if you can, as its all just so easy! There is also a secure underground area in which a bicycle could be parked if you are keen on using two wheels.
