York Luxury Holidays – The City Escape

Self Catering


The City Escape is a beautiful newly refurbished Victorian Townhouse, located just off Bootham, which is the main historic city entrance road from the north ring road/A19, and is just about a 10 minute walk from the city’s historic Bootham Bar entrance gate to the city, where the Theatre Royal and Art Gallery are located. It is also just a short walk to the Museum Gardens and the river area for river walks.

Close by, in the opposite direction away from town, are a few lovely specialist shops, delis and cafes. The accommodation itself is spread over two floors and is a Tardis! Furnished to the highest of standards it offers lots of space, quality and comfort, inside and out. The main entrance door leads from the front garden into an entrance lobby area and then into a lovely long hallway with beautiful tiling. The super-comfortable sitting room, seating seven guests, looks over the front of the property through large windows. There is also a 43” Smart TV with Netflix and an electric wood-wood-burning effect fire.

The sitting room is open plan with the dining room, which offers a large dining space for up to eight guests. French doors from the dining room lead into the private south-west facing walled courtyard garden, where there is seating and lighting. The superb modern kitchen offers everything a guest could need, and from which there is a door leading into the courtyard garden.

At the rear of the property, at ground floor level, is a spacious king sized bedroom, overlooking the garden area, with a brand new en-suite shower room. On the first floor is a further king bedroom and a twin bedroom. Both are beautifully furnished with high quality bed linen and everything needed for a relaxing sleep. There is also a kids room offering a 43” Smart TV with Netflix, an X-box and further entertainment for the kids, with a large corner sofa bed sleeping 1-2 children. (By prior agreement the sofa bed may be available for an adult to use instead.)

There is also a brand new immaculate family bathroom with a bath, a shower unit and sink, plus a separate cloakroom. Parking for one vehicle is on the street at the front of the property using a permit.

An additional vehicle may also be able to park on nearby streets at the front of the property where a permit is not required, or at nearby Marygate car-park. This really is a tremendous holiday property offering guests a terrific location from which to explore York, and to be away from the hubbub at night.
