With views of the magnificent York Minster and centrally located to enjoy the historic buildings and many attractions York has to offer.

Situated opposite the west front of York Minster, this luxury first floor apartment enjoys a peaceful position right in the very heart of the city. Beautifully presented to a very high specification and with stunning views of the Minster, this is certainly the perfect place for a relaxing break in this vibrant city.
From the doorstep, visitors can immerse themselves in all that York has to offer. The railway station is close by for those wishing to leave the car at home, however private parking is provided. York appeals to all ages throughout the entire year, with the Jorvik Viking festival in February through to the Christmas markets and carol concerts in December, and an abundance of attractions to visit in between.
It is a cobbled world of contrasts with a wonderful mixture of old and new; exquisite architecture and narrow streets packed with independent shops and high street favourites. Visit the Art Gallery, Museum Gardens and the Railway Museum, step back in time at Barley Hall and the Castle Museum, and climb to the top of Clifford’s Tower and the Minster for stunning views across the city and surrounding countryside. There are restaurants, inns and traditional teashops to suit all tastes, with the famous Betty’s being a favourite.
Days out can be enjoyed visiting stately homes at Castle Howard and Beningbrough Hall, whilst the North York Moors, The Yorkshire Dales and the coastal resorts of Whitby and Scarborough are all easily accessible. Shop, pub and restaurant 5 yards.

    The property is extremely well located with a spectacular view of the West front of York Minster. Overall, the furnishings are of a very high specification. On our arrival the apartment looked fantastic. Therefore, it was very disappointing that during the course of our weeks stay so many snags occurred. The light bulb in the utility room exploded towards the end our stay. Luckily the falling glass missed my Wife. This left lights not working in the utility room, hall way and second bedroom. Without over dramatising this we hope that this does not indicate a serious issue with the internal electrics. In addition, the flush on the en-suite toilet failed on our last morning. We contacted the property agents and reported the above incidents, along with several other minor issues which hopefully they will be able to rectify before the next visitors arrive. Whilst the property has a superb location, we have only answered ‘no’ to the would we recommend question as a result of the genuine and severe shock caused by the exploding light bulb. We enjoyed a great week here in York, we have been visiting the City for many years and we hope to continue return in the future. Thank you for this opportunity to give our views on the appartment and our stay. Best Wishes

    Response on behalf of the agency; Thank you for your feedback, we do appreciate hearing from our guests. We are very sorry to hear about the snags you encountered during your stay, I can only imagine the shock your wife experienced when the light bulb blew. As you know from your communication with the maintenance team, the issue with the light bulbs was in already in hand and I am pleased to confirm that the bulb was repaired following your departure. Similarly, the flush was an easy fix, it had simply been pushed in with greater force than was required. It is such a shame that despite having enjoyed your stay, despite these snags, you were compelled to leave such a low score. We do hope that you will return to us again and enjoy this delightful property now they have been remedied.

    The apartment is in a quiet, peaceful location, yet within walking distance of all of York's attractions. The apartment is spacious and well equipped, with stunning views of York Minster. Our stay was slightly spoilt by the two sofas, one in particular was too uncomfrotable to sit on.

    A well-equipped and comfortable apartment in a superb location, with wonderful views of the Minster. We would recommend this property and would definitely return. It is not suitable for anyone with mobility problems as there is no lift and the apartment is on the first floor.

    Second time staying and absolutely loved it. Love the heated floors. It’s such a quiet place in arguably the best location. You can’t beat the views of the Minster. Thanks for having us!

    Great location. Could have provided more dish towels but otherwise all other supplies fine. The living room furniture should probably be replaced or restrung, couches were low and hard. Loved watching the people and the Minster from the living room. Would definitely return.

    We had a lovely stay at The Brierley. I would recommend The Brierley to anyone wishing to seek a centrally located apartment in York.
