About this listing
The ice cream factory, York
Large room in city centre with your own private bathroom.
Your room is on the sunny second floor with a double bed, comfy chair, wardrobe, large glass table and 40 inch TV with DVD. On the same floor is your own private bathroom with separate bath and shower. There is unlimited wifi throughout the house.
Located within York city walls in a quiet street, our home was once a 1940's built Italian ice cream factory which we converted into a unique three-bed house. It's an interesting and spacious home, with a contemporary feel and we've tried to retain some of the special character of the original building.
We are a few minutes walk from the railway station, right amongst the shops, bars, clubs and restaurants, in fact a short walk from most of York's attractions.
We are 1.9 miles from York University, 1 mile from St Johns University, 1.5 miles to York Racecourse and only 10 minutes walk to York's Minster.
On the ground floor is your own private mini kitchen with fridge, microwave oven, grill, toaster and kettle, plus a table for two. You get your own key, so come and go as you please. We are happy to chat if you need any help, but we also understand that you want your own space.
Fresh bed linen and towels are provided.
There is a secure garage on the ground floor, its £5 per day to hire but must be booked beforehand.
Very spacious and comfortable bedroom and bathroom. Very convenient location. All the facilities one would need while travelling are available.
The ice cream factory was a fantastic place to stay in York. It is very convenient, but also quiet, even on the city wide chaos of Race Day. Mike was a terrific host -- very accommodating, and very cool! Be sure to stop by his bar on Fossgate!
Great location with a short walk to the centre of York. Mike was nice and helpful. Both the room and the bathroom are large, clean, and well-decorated. Well definitely stay at again next time when we visit York!!
FAB!!! Booked my parents into the Ice cream factory and they had a fantastic stay! The place was perfect location, central to town and Mike was the perfect host. It had everything you needed for an enjoyable and pleasant stay and I Will recommend to more friends and family for future visits to York :)
Mike met us at the door the moment we arrived at the apartment. He was very cordial and hospitable and even brought our luggage up to the top floor for us.
The bathroom was one of the best I've experienced in my AirBnB stays. Also got to do laundry which was a plus. The bedroom was spacious and very comfortable for two.
Great location; short walk from York station and to various attractions like York Minster. Would highly recommend this place to anyone spending a few days in York.
Look no further, this place is the best. The room is elegant, immaculate, and huge. A large glass desk and space aplenty for your stuff. A big, beautifully equipped bathroom, and a 'guest' kitchen with all you need right at hand. A grocery store and restaurants, two minutes away, and York and its glories, an easy ten minutes. Mike is warm and welcoming, and even provided a 'guide' he created with a map of the best the city has to offer. I would return to York just to stay here again! A big thank you, Mike, for sharing your amazing home.
Mike was an excellent host and the accomodation likewise. It was central in the city and to the railway station enabling us to walk wherever we wanted to go. Comfortable bed large clean room with our own bathroom and guest kitchen plus laundry facilities including drier.

About the Host, Mike
I've lived at the ice cream factory for 5 years, slowly getting the place into shape.
I'm relaxed and easy going. Pop in and say hi, or keep yourselves to yourselves, I don’t mind.
I am self employed and create websites, I use a downstairs room as an office so I'm available all day if you have a question.
