Luxury apartment and stylishly refurbished throughout to provide a luxury finish whilst retaining 16th century original features and boasting views of York Minster and great attractions on the doorstep

This stunning 16th-century apartment in the heart of the walled city of York is ideal for couples or families wanting to explore the sights of the city and the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside. Situated above an artisan delicatessen in the city centre, you are surrounded by independent shops and eateries amongst the cobbled streets, as well as having views of magnificent York Minster. You're also within a few hundred metres of York's many interesting attractions. Beyond the walls, there is some picturesque countryside to be explored on foot or by bike, with the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty approximately 15 miles north and the Nidderdale AONB approximately 30 miles west.


As its age would suggest, this charming apartment is packed with original features, but these are blended seamlessly with contemporary style and decor to create a luxurious apartment. Whilst exposed beams, wooden panelling and exquisite fireplaces add character, the crisp white walls and neutral palette make it feel bright and fresh throughout. Occasional pops of colour add comfort and interest.


After ascending the staircase past the Mannion Cafe below, you will find yourself in the kitchen/diner. This light and airy room is well-equipped with everything you'll need to cook up some tasty treats. It has bespoke cabinets and an interesting breakfast bar for dining at. Moving through the lounge, you will appreciate the sense of comfort. Its focal point is the beautiful fireplace and open fire, whilst velvet-effect sofas in a range of rich colours invite you to sink into them. Once again, exposed beams in the walls remind you of the apartment's heritage. There is the added bonus of a piano in this room for those with an inclination to tinkle on the ivories.


Also on this floor is one of the two bedrooms. This double room has magnificent wall-panelling painted white for a contemporary twist and the sumptuous curtains add to the sense of grandeur.


The peaceful master bedroom is upstairs with a king-size handmade bed, made by the finest bedmaker in Britian. The vaulted ceiling adds space and light, but there is restricted height in places.


Outside there is a small seating area and an outbuilding down the stairs housing a washing machine. There is no parking included with the property but NCP Tanner Row offer parking just 5 minutes away and the train station just a 7-mnute walk away.


  • 3 bedrooms – 1 king-size, 1 double and a single bedroom

  • Wifi included
  • Miele Induction oven and hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and microwave
  • Utility room in outbuilding with washing machine

  • Regret no parking included
  • Regret no dogs
  • Shops, restaurants and pubs within easy walking distance

  • Situated above Mannion deli, the apartment is reached via the café or through the café courtyard

The jewel in North Yorkshire's crown, we think York is one of the best short break destinations in England and is a favourite amongst even the most seasoned of travellers. This ancient walled city has been the north's spiritual capital for 2,000 years, but that's not to say it is stuck in the past; York's affluent population and its influx of tourist pounds has helped to create a cultural and commercial oasis. History seeps out of every cobbled street, but the crooked old buildings house a fantastic range of contemporary designer shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Everywhere in York is easily reachable by foot as this small but perfectly formed city houses most of its main attractions within the city walls. Middle Ages' town planning means it can take quite some time to get your bearings but finding your way around the labyrinth of warped streets is part of the fun. Make sure you take in York Minster, The Shambles, the Railway Museum and Betty's tea room whilst you're there.

If you are looking for outside space in which to relax, you have the choice of a number of parks and gardens, including Dean's Park next to the Minster, the Yorkshire Museum Gardens and next to the River Ouse, and slightly further afield, Rowntree Park with its children's playground, tennis courts and bowling green.

And what's more, it really is a year-round location. Summer days can be spent lounging in one of the gorgeous parks and in the autumn, York comes alive with shop windows sparkling in the dusky light. Its central location also makes a great base from which to explore the rest of glorious Yorkshire, with the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and Yorkshire Coastline all within easy reach for beautiful walks and adventurous days out.

If walking or cycling is your thing, there are lots of beautiful paths and routes in the area. If you fancy serious hiking, the North York Moors landscape offers some of the best trails in the country. Take a trip up to the top of the high moorlands around Blakey Ridge (42 miles) and breathe in that clear Yorkshire air.

The beautiful market town of Helmsley (24.5 miles) is within easy driving distance and is well worth a visit. Head 18 miles east to find Malton, another gorgeous market town offering lots of lovely independent shops and cafes to indulge in, or the charming market town of Easingwold is a great option at 13 miles from the city.

We had a lovely week long stay, the location is perfect for exploring York. The apartment has loads of character and feels very homely. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and there are dozens of great options for food on the doorstep. I can't think of a holiday let I've enjoyed more.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
