A jewel in North Yorkshire's crown, you will be perfectly situated to explore the ancient walled city and all its attractions by foot. The history-rich city has become somewhat of a cultural and commercial oasis over the years boasting a vast collection of independent shops, charming eateries and welcoming restaurants and pubs, offering a wonderful trip to be enjoyed by the whole family. Located just by Lendal Bridge, the bustling city centre and the famous York Minster and The Shambles are within walking distance. Embrace the historic 14th-century city walls, enchanting cobbled streets and delightful attractions such as the Jorvik Viking Centre and Victorian Castle Museum.

Although much care and attention has been paid to retain the character and historical features of this charming home, you will find contemporary comforts throughout to create a unique stay. As you make your way inside, you'll step into a surprisingly spacious home. The ground floor is home to the lounge, kitchen and dining area. The lounge is a welcoming space complete with comfortable seating, exposed oak beams and a double height ceiling taking you up to the mezzanine floor. Next door is the kitchen diner, home to all the amenities you'll need to enjoy some home cooking throughout your stay before sitting at the grand dining table to enjoy family meals. Make your way upstairs to discover the first of three restful double bedrooms; a stylish bedroom housed on the mezzanine level. Continue onwards and upwards to arrive at the second bedroom boasting a traditional wood burner. The third bedroom is much the same, with both boasting en-suite bathrooms. Following a day of discovery sink into the bubbles as you enjoy a dip in the luxurious copper bath located in the master. There is also a handy WC and shower room located on the ground floor.

Outside is equally as impressive, boasting an attractive garden offering uninterrupted views along the river; a perfect spot for al fresco dining during the warmer months. There's no better start to the day than enjoying a fresh coffee as you take in your peaceful surroundings with the sound of the river flowing by. The star of the show is the rooftop terrace offering 360-degree views of York; a truly enviable luxury offering you a birds eye view of the charming medieval city. This property offers off-road parking.

The jewel in North Yorkshire's crown, York is one of the best destinations in England for a break away; York is a favourite amongst even the most seasoned of travellers and this ancient walled city has been the north's spiritual capital for 2000 years. But that's not say it is stuck in the past; York's affluent young student population and its influx of tourists 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.

This property enjoys an enviable location by the river in York's city centre. Located just by Lendal bridge, the bustling city centre and the famous York Minster and Shambles are just a few hundred metres away.

Everywhere in York is easily reachable by foot as this small but perfectly formed city houses most of its main attractions within the old 14th century city walls. Middle age town planning means it can take quite some time to get your bearings but finding your way around the labyrinth of jumbled streets is part of the fun. A word of warning to the girls: bring some flats for sight-seeing and shopping as the cobbles play havoc with heels!

And what's more, it really is a year-round location. Summer days can be spent lounging in one of the many gorgeous parks throughout the city 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.

We loved it ! Couldn't have been better situated in the heart of York. Scottish family came down to join us there specifically for the annual Viking festival and, among other things, were able to watch the fireworks from the roof terrace. We were blessed with most unseasonal February weather and managed to have Sunday afternoon tea in the gardeRead moren. We loved every moment of our stay there. The kitchen is most well equipped. The only problem was that the extractor / fan in the ground floor toilet, which has no other ventilation, was not working. Hide

Since my return, I have raved to everyone about Lendal Tower as being the best possible place to stay in York which must be the best possible small town to visit in the UK. Despite the direst weather, we had a brilliant time.
