“Exceptional position for York centre "what a view" BRILLIANT, we'll be back!”

Probably the Best position in our opinion, The flat is on the second floor overlooking the River Foss (and lock) , the river Ouse and York castle, if the weather's not so good, what a view you have from the French windows overlooking the rivers and the two bridges, the flat was warm and comfy ( we went in the winter and central heating warmed up in minutes!! ) well equipped with everything you could need, very clear instructions and directions to the flat, car park just outside the front door, there are of course stairs to climb but all is well lit , owner and housekeeper exceptional,
We left the car in the car park it's only approx five minutes stroll to the city centre, which is another saving no car parking fees !!!
Free internet , tv ,DVD player ,and comfy sofa !!
Highly Recommend

“Cosy, quiet hideaway in York”

Fewster Way is just a short walk from the City Walls and is a great, but quiet and cosy place to stay. I like the bright colours of the decor. The apartment has a great view of the Foss with barges, swans and geese.
Its easy to get to all the shops and attractions and there are lovely riverside walks.
This was our second stay here, would highly recommend.

“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A great central location, not only for visiting York, but as a base for exploring Yorkshire further. Comfortable and cosy, well-furnished, terrific Wi-Fi and easy to contact the owner or housekeeper. A marvellous stay.

“Excellent. Thoroughly recommend”
Reviewed 12 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just spent a week staying here. Loved everything about the flat and location. Flat was ideal for my hubby and I. Lovely and clean with all you'd need for a home from home type of break. The flat is ideally set at end of a quiet cul de sac and overlooks the river Foss. If you struggle climbing upstairs the flat is on 2nd floor. The only noise was the geese as they seem to like the grass beside this part of the river at about teatime before flying off for the night. We travelled to York by train and a taxi from the station was £5 approx. Centre of York 10 -15 mins walk to visit The Minster, Shambles etc
We didn't need to cook for the entire week as there's Wetherspoons just 2 min walk away( ideal for breakfast) and numerous restaurants and take aways within 5mins walk. You'll need to take tea, coffee sugar if you fancy a cuppa. There's a Sainsburys Local and Tesco Local open till 11pm on Piccadily which is the street into town next to Wetherspoons/|Travelodge.
We'll definitely book this flat again for our next York visit.

“Really good”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I will get the only issue out of the way first. The Wifi was adequate but rather slow. The owner is planning to look into this. Otherwise everything was really good from location, just outside the city walls, and view, especially if you like swan watching, to the décor of the living room and the equipping of the kitchen (a goodish kitchen knife for example) and bathroom (bath handles and a non-slip mat for the bath.) I could connect my iPod to the nice little stereo and there was a good range of TV channels.
All in all, a place I would be happy to live in all year round. Very quiet but still very connected to the outside world.
