The area of Monkgate is a very upmarket residential area very close to York Minster and the city walls. The apartment is on the top floor of the very beautiful County House apartment block (this before converted was the County Hospital).

This impressive period property is on the very doorstep of all that is interesting and exciting about York, you could not be better placed for a perfect city break. The area of Monkgate is a very upmarket residential area very close to York Minster and the city walls. The apartment is on the top floor of the very beautiful County House apartment block (this before converted was the County Hospital). The rooms are, spacious (much larger than they appear in the photographs) and light, and are furnished and equipped to a very high standard. There are two double bedrooms with double beds, one is en suit. There is an additional small 3rd bedroom with double bed, (used as an ALTERNATIVE to the mezzanine bedroom if preferred, please agree the use of a third bed with me before booking as there maybe a charge for extra linen and servicing).There is also a lounge ,a family bathroom,a kitchen diner and a large hallway leading to the two mezzanines upstairs (one has the lounge and the other the second bedroom) both mezzanines are private from each other. This beautiful converted Victorian hospital has great character, it is also set back from the road and therefore there is no road or street noise, very quiet. The gated car park is at the front of the building and free. From the apartment window, which is second (top) floor you have a view across the city, we are so close to the main area of the town. I am sure you will not be disappointed with this fabulous apartment in this very central location. The apartment is suitable for 2 or 4 people. Families,( who seem to love this upside down apartment), friends or romantic couples. Unsuitable for Stags and Hens. Also includes free Wi fi. Occasional 3rd Bedroom. Please note this third bedroom is to be used only as an extra bed when agreed with me when booking or as an alternative to the mezzanine bedroom. Thank you. Please note, Parking is in front of the building in a gated parking area with an allocated position. We are only allowed to have one car in this car park, if you park in any other area you may incur fines. Parking is at your own risk I cannot be held responsible for damage or theft to any vehicle.
