Lovely one bed flat in city centre

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Gillygate, York, YO31 7EA, United Kingdom

The Space

Lovely one bedroom ground floor flat right in the centre of York. It features a combined kitchen and living room, a small entrance hall with storage cupboard, and a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

Please note that the bed has since changed since my photos were taken. It is now a divan base, which is a lot sturdier and not as creaky!

The flat is cosy but it has everything you need in a great central location. The bathroom has a bathtub (not always the case in smaller central flats!) so you can have a lovely relaxing soak in the evening after a long day of sightseeing, and there are plenty of DVD's that you're welcome to watch if you fancy a night in.

The kitchen has everything you need (except a toaster, but the grill works fine for this) and all the appliances have been newly installed.

Situated on Gillygate, there are plenty of fantastic cafes, pubs and restaurants along the street. You can walk to the centre of town in five minutes, where there are so many great bars and restaurants that you'll be spoilt for choice. York is very well-known for its excellent variety in restaurants. I'm more than happy to recommend some places for you if you'd like.

The famous and beautiful York Minster is a five minute walk away, the Theatre Royal is a 4-5 minute walk away, and has a great variety of plays on, and the Yorkshire Museum is 8-10 minutes walk away. You can have a lovely stroll by the river in the afternoon or evening, which is about a five minute walk away.

There is a bus-stop outside the flat on the main street, and there are excellent transport links to get you wherever you want to go.

Thank you for looking, and I hope you have a fantastic holiday!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The flat was absolutely lovely. Clean and tidy. Literally a stones throw from the centre. The bed was very comfortable as well!! I had a great stay and will definitely be back in touch the next time I am in York. Thank you very much :-)

  • Fantastic flat in central York, easy walking distance to all the tourist venues, and yet still amazingly quiet. Very clean and newly furnished, and the perfect base for a long weekend away. Rhiannon was most keen that we had a great time, keeping in good contact, and checking all was well. She explicitly invited us to help ourselves to wine and food from the fridge (she left a cold chicken for us!) and said we were welcome to use her shampoo, toothpaste, etc.

    The only slight negative was that my partner felt the bed was rather too hard for a comfortable night's sleep - but she is a bit fussy about that kind of thing. I slept like a baby!

    I'd definitely recommend this flat to anyone looking for a base in York, and Rhiannon as a perfect absentee hostess.

  • Rhiannon's place is a lovely, extremely convenient spot for a couple or an individual. She responded very quickly to the minor issues I had. (We Americans don't always get the ins and outs of the workings of plumbing etc.!) If you want a quiet retreat in a great place, I would highly recommend this flat.

  • Brilliant, lovely apartment right in the centre. Great host, really easy with no problems what so ever. Will definitely use again.

    February 2014
  • Amazing flat location, close to the station and just minutes to walk into the centre of York. The flat itself was lovely, clean, cosy and had everything we needed during our stay.
    Rhiannon was fantastic as a host, quick to respond to email, friendly and flexible with check in and out which was greatly appreciated!
    Would absolutely recommend this flat to anyone visiting York.

  • It was a pleasure staying in Rhiannon flat! Her flat is lovely and really central, easy walking distance to everywhere (cathedral, walls,...). Everything about this stay was easy, comfortable, and convenient, and I wouldn't hesitate recommending Rhiannon's place to anyone. Wonderful experience!

I'm 25, I love travel, meeting new people, experiencing new cultures. I enjoy horse-riding and I love the sun! My favourite travel destination so far has been Thailand, and I really hope to go back soon. I'm a big movie fan, and like all sorts - one of my favourites is True Romance. I LOVE food! I am willing to try most things, and I really enjoy dining al fresco. I try to be positive about things - a smile goes a long way :)
