“Beautiful city hideaway has it ALL!”

We spent Christmas week 2014 in York and were delighted with our stay at Popes Head Court. This bright and spacious apartment was beautifully decorated and immaculate, with fresh floral bouquets throughout! Everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing vacation was provided. The kitchen was well stocked with a selection of tea, biscuits, spices, and so much more…and when we realised we’d forgotten to purchase gravy for our Christmas lunch we even found a tube of Colman’s Instant Chicken Gravy in the cupboard. The lunch was rescued!

Liz was a lovely hostess who provided excellent information—from how to find the apartment to how to operate everything in it (which was appreciated since, as non-Brits, we were unfamiliar with some of the ‘technology’ used in the U.K.). Liz made us feel so welcome by tastefully decorating the apartment for Christmas and leaving a luxurious fruit cake from Betty’s Tea Room and fresh croissants on the counter, milk in the refrigerator, and even a Christmas card and festive scented candles for us.

The apartment’s central location was amazing and the view over the city rooftops through the apartment’s huge windows was lovely. We were just steps from the outdoor Christmas market and The Shambles, and a few minutes’ walk from York Minster (where we attended the midnight Christmas Eve service). If you like to cook for yourself there are several grocery stores to choose from just a short walk from the apartment. If you prefer to eat out, you would have to stay for months to try all of the restaurants, cafés, and pubs in the area!

I could not think of anything that would improve this well-priced, beautifully appointed apartment and I would highly recommend it to other travellers. I hope we have the opportunity to return to York again and to Popes Head Court!

“Wonderful Place to Stay in York!”

One way I select an apartment or cottage rental is how helpful the owner is and if the owner is willing to answer all my questions. Liz was the BEST! She was so helpful and had step by step instructions for everything from how to find the garage to how to walk to the apartment from the garage to where to eat and what to see. It was Fabulous! My husband said he would like to go back and stay a month which is high praise!! The apartment was everything advertised and then some. It was so comfortable for two couples and had everything we needed. It was so conveniently located and we loved the Snickleway. York is one of our favorite places in England and staying here made our experience even better. We came back to York on Christmas Eve for the day and Liz was even available to recommend restaurants for lunch. She was really great and we appreciate all her help and loved staying here. It was so convenient to have the parking place and the elevator as well. Loved, loved, loved it!!!!! Thanks for everything, Liz.

“Cosy apartment in the Centre of York”

Dealing with Liz regarding Popeshead Court is very easy, she is extremely helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The property is located down a very small street in the centre of York, the directions from Liz were spot on and we had no trouble locating the property. The apartment is beautifully furnished and every comfort is accounted for, even Bettys Cakes and lots of other nice touches. I would not hesitate in recommending this property for anyone wishing to experience all York has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and hope to be able to return in the not too distant future.

“Beyond my expectations”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Booked for a weekend visit to York. All of the information supplied in advance of our trip was spot on, directions to the garage and from the garage to the apartment, only a short walk. First impression of the apartment was wow!, I really could live here. Everything had been considered, some supplies to keep us going, instructions on how to use everything. The apartment is immaculate, we could not find fault with anything.

The friends that we traveled with said that we had done well to find such a lovely place, we all said that we will definitely stay here again.
