The Space

This one bedroomed apartment is part of a converted Victorian town house, it consists of a small new modern kitchen, a bathroom with a bath and over-head shower. It has a large living room with a period fire place, a smart T.V, DVD player and wifi internet. It is furnished and decorated to a high standard,with everything you might need to make your stay a memorable one.

The apartment also has a shared garden.
It is approximately a 15 minute walk from the train station.

There is on street parking with permits only, these cost £2.50 per day, please mention if you would like some on booking.

The apartment is on Portland street, just off Gilygate.
Situated just outside the medieval city walls, Gillygate is a street of very varied shops and businesses including a large variety of interesting places to eat and drink.

The street, which takes its name from the now demolished medieval church of St Giles, forms an important road link between the Bootham district and the area around York St John which is York’s second university.

If you leave the city through Bootham Bar ( the oldest city gateway), you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of Gillygate and then stroll along Lord Mayor’s Walk with its fabulous views of the city walls, including Robin Hood Tower, and then return to the city through Monk Bar( the tallest city gateway).

The Neighborhood

Great bars, shops, and heritage all within walking distance.

Getting around

Good bus service, but not needed as in the city centre

  • The position of the flat could not be better: The main areas of interest for visitors to York are within easy walking distance. Yet Portland St feels like a quiet, secluded residential area. The flat is a good size for a couple. We were three, a couple and a young teenager, which meant that one of us had to sleep on the sofa (as it says in the airbnb presentation). The sofa proved to be comfortable.
    We appreciated the inate charm of the building, the tastefulness of the home decoration and the fact that everything worked.
    York is a charming city with lots to see and do and plenty of good restaurants, tea rooms pubs etc. I can warmly recommend this apartment and a visit to York.

  • This (email hidden) to stay. The apartment was exactly as pictured and described. Clean, airy and uncluttered. Everything I needed was there. The location, just a few minutes walk from the bustling heart of old York, but far enough down a side street to be very quiet, was perfect for exploring York on foot. I visited several of the restaurants, pubs and coffee shop that Clair recommended and found them all to be great. I would definitely stay here again.

  • We had a fab stay in Claire's lovely apartment. Amazing location - so close to city centre and loads of amenities right on the doorstep. The apartment is perfect for a weekend stay (or longer!) - clean, quiet and comfortable. We'd definitely book again! Thanks, Claire :)

  • (email hidden), right in the heart of York. Absolutely perfect for a trip away, so much nicer than a hotel.

  • The flat was excellent- really well equipped, comfortable, centrally located but very quiet, and with good parking outside (using the parking permits Claire can provide). And Claire answered every question thoroughly and speedily, which we greatly appreciated. Our first airbnb, and an excellent introduction to it! Olwen and David.
