Apartment 1 is a first floor apartment located in a converted Georgian building on Bootham, York, just a one minute walk from Bootham Bar, the medieval gateway to the City of York and the spectacular York Minster.
This apartment is perfectly placed for exploring the City.
Located opposite York Museum Gardens (just the perfect place to take a break and sit a while in the beautiful gardens overlooking the River Ouse), with York Minster, York Art Gallery and the Theatre Royal are just a stones throw away and with plentiful shopping and so many restaurants and bars, you are never far from all that York has to offer.
Retaining many of its original period features, three large sash windows and Georgian high ceilings combine to give a bright and spacious feel with open plan living area which overlooks Bootham below.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need and the comfortable and cosy living area is complimented with low level lighting, flat screen TV with Freeview, DVD and CD players, so kick back and relax after a hard days enjoyment.
The double bedroom has a large bay window and is quietly located at the rear of the apartment with plenty of wardrobe space, white Egyptian cotton bedding on the comfortable double bed and has wall mounted flat screen TV.
The stylish L-shaped bathroom with exposed timbers, one of the original period features of the building has a bath with shower over, heated towel rail with soft white towels and two white cotton waffle dressing gowns.
All you need for a relaxing and romantic break.

This was my first experience of an Airbnb stay, and I'm glad that I did! For more or less the same price as a chain hotel on the outskirts of York we had a beautiful flat a moment's walk from the Minster, complete with fluffy towels and dressing gowns in the bathroom, a few books and games in the living area, and teabags, coffee, a pint of milk and some fat rascals in the kitchen! Sarah was extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
My boyfriend and I stayed in Sarah's lovely apartment in early January and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The apartment is beautifully decorated with a lot of little extras that made us feel very welcome including some delicious scones on arrival! Sarah is an excellent host, easy to communicate with and very adaptable when we were running a bit late on arrival and wanted to stay a little bit later on our last morning.
The apartment is also very well located in terms of nearby attractions being a few moments from the Minster and the old town centre and just a short walk to the train station (where we arrived and departed from).
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again...hopefully I can have a longer visit next time as I really didn't want to leave!

Sarah's lovely apartment is situated on the first floor of an impressive Georgian property, above street-front retail premises below (a new and rather nice-looking cafe was in the process of opening while we were there). Despite its town centre location the apartment was quiet and peaceful. The bedroom is at the rear of the property.
The apartment is really well-appointed, to a high and very tasteful standard, all consistent with the site photos. Everything you would want to see and experience in York is within easy walking distance.
Sarah was a very communicative and friendly host and a pleasure to deal with. I'm very happy to recommend her apartment to others looking for a high-quality base from which to explore the lovely city of York.
Our stay could not have been more perfect.
The apartment is stunning. the pictures do not do this beautiful apartment enough justice. It is in a superb location right in the thick of everything. With its cosy lighting and comfortable furnishings, every little detail of Sarah's apartment is homely and welcoming.
Sarah was a great host offering a beautiful apartment.
Sarah could not have been a more perfect host. Her wonderful apartment is in a superb location and very close to a supermarket and almost all of York's tourist attractions, and only 2 minutes away from the hop-on-hop-off bus (and evening ghost tours). We had a fabulous time and Sarah's welcome basket was the "icing on the cake". We walked from the railway station to Sarah's apartment, dragging heavy suitcases, and it was a relatively easy walk (with a couple of short breaks along the way). Also, lots of coffee/tea cafes, bars and restaurants, and many other shops, banks (and ATMs) & markets are only a few minutes away. Thanks Sarah; we hope to return soon.
Our stay here was wonderful. The location couldn't be any better, and Sarah was very welcoming. I would recommend this apartment to anyone considering a stay in York.
A great place to stay. Very close to all the centre of things, a very spacious and comfortable apartment which is well equipped. Sarah is a friendly host who went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable.
Excellent location, very nice modern finish and super friendly hosts - definitely recommended.
