with the best hosts! Stephen and Christine have carefully furnished a comfortable, fully-equipped apartment in a convenient central location with views of York Minster. Set in a garden in the midst of the city, this is an oasis for either a relaxing or an active holiday. As if that weren’t enough, the extra goodies were a welcome and pleasant surprise. You could not ask for more, and we are already planning another visit.
Excellent small apartment in very central location, close to all the sights. Well equipped, friendly welcome by Stephen.
This is our 4th time (in 2 years) staying at this fantastic apartment. Excellent location: quiet, peaceful, and yet in the centre of it all. Truly steps from the Minster.
Stephen & Christine are marvelous hosts, and the flat has everything you could need for a short /longer stay (we were there for 3 weeks).
Thank you for yet another wonderful holiday. We will definitely be back - and hopefully very soon!
Stephen and Christine’s apartment is modern, very attractive, impeccably maintained, very well equipped, and extremely quiet. All of this, (including the quietness) and located right in the thick of things on Low Petergate, set within an inner garden courtyard from where you can see the Minster a couple of hundred yards away. All of central York is at your doorstep. If you have a car with you to allow exploring further afield, private and secure parking is available with the flat, a genuine two to three minute walk away.
Apart from exploring all of the wonderful nooks and crannies of the medieval city, and generally getting lost driving around the Moors, I highly recommend a day trip to Robin Hood’s Bay and Whitby, and visits to Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Gardens, as well as Castle Howard.
For the best coffee in York go to Spring Espresso, down the hill in Fossgate, and La Vecchia Scuola, the Italian restaurant right next door to Talbot Court, is extremely good.
This is all topped off by truly very good, warmly welcoming and responsive hosts in Stephen and Christine. From initial booking enquires through to pre-arrival information, meeting at the apartment, and being available during our stay, Stephen was excellent... attentive, responsive, charming and very personable. You can book this apartment with absolute confidence that you will receive great customer service from start to finish.
We loved our stay at Talbot Court
It was such a lovely apartment, a pleasure to return to after being out
It is so central and yet so quiet
Stephen and Christine cannot do enough for you and they helped make our stay so special
We will never look for anywhere else to stay when visiting York
