No one would guess that an unassuming door in one of central York's most bustling streets provides access to the haven of peace and beauty that is Stonegate Court. Once through this door, you take the lift to a private piazza giving a dazzling view of the full length of York Minster — one of the largest and finest examples of mediaeval architecture anywhere in the world. You can sit on one of the benches there and marvel at the sheer grandeur of the place — then step straight from the piazza into your apartment and delight in its space and airiness, its elegant decor and furnishings, the fine linens and toiletries, the three TVs and all the other high-end equipment designed to make your stay as comfortable and carefree as possible. And while feasting your eyes on the sheer luxury of it all...No one would guess that an unassuming door in one of central York's most bustling streets provides access to the haven of peace and beauty that is Stonegate Court. Once through this door, you take the lift to a private piazza giving a dazzling view of the full length of York Minster — one of the largest and finest examples of mediaeval architecture anywhere in the world.

And while feasting your eyes on the sheer luxury of it all, you can also enjoy the tasty treats awaiting you in the super-stylish kitchen! Go back out into the street, and you can choose between body and soul: yards away on your left is the world-famous Betty's Café, just around the corner to your right is the magnificent Minster: in whatever order, both places are definitely worth a visit! Wander through the ancient network of streets and 'snickelways' and you will find old, very old and extremely old domestic architecture, mediaeval churches of every size and description, and splendid iconic buildings such as Clifford's Tower, St. William's College, Merchant Adventurers' Hall, and the various 'bars' or gateways that lead through the venerable city walls — on the top of which you can walk almost all around the city, with magnificent views at every turn. If this gives you an appetite, you couldn't be in a better place: York is the only English city that made it into a recent TripAdvisor list of Europe's Top Ten hotspots for food and wine. In the evening you can slip into one of the countless wine bars and pubs, take in a performance at the Theatre Royal, or scare your socks off on a guided ghost tour. Then after all that you can escape from the noise and jollity by slipping back though that secret door into the peace and quiet of Stonegate Court, and settle down for a sweet sleep in your luxurious bed... If on other days you fancy a break from street life, you can hop on a river steamer just 100 yards from the apartment, you can take a pretty bus ride direct to the seaside (a trip to Whitby is worth it just to have fish and chips at the famous Magpie Café!), or you can visit such spectacular places as Beningbrough Hall, Richmond Castle or Rievaulx Abbey. No matter how long your stay, you will never be short of things to do! NB We have our own PRIVATE PARKING SPACE (free of charge).More

As Stonegate Court is a small residential development, I am afraid we are unable to accept stag or hen party bookings. We also ask guests to respect the fact that the apartment is one of very few holiday rental properties in the development, and that our neighbours need to be undisturbed at all times.

About the neighbourhood
York is so famously unique that it scarcely needs an introduction. Once the capital of the entire Roman empire; home to waves of Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Normans; the location of the largest Gothic cathedral north of the Alps; site of one of the decisive battles of the English Civil War: it would be difficult to imagine a city more steeped in history. Almost entirely encompassed by ancient walls, the central city with its maze of streets and mediaeval alleyways has a spectacular range of beautiful buildings from every era — the most stunning of which, the famous Minster, is in full view from our private piazza. The Shambles, a couple of hundred yards away, was recently voted the most picturesque street in England, and a very short walk in the opposite direction takes you to the riverside...
Getting around
Stonegate Court is so central that you can happily dispense with your car. Indeed, you'll have a happier time getting around on foot. If you want to travel further afield to one of Yorkshire's many tourist attractions, we are a short walk from the railway station - or you could hop on a Coastliner bus!
