Bathroom with shower over bath, sink and toilet. YORK York is a living museum, with evidence of Roman, Anglo Saxon, Viking, Norman and Tudor visitors, yet is still a lively, modern city with shopping, tea shops, riverside pubs, restaurants and a vibrant night life. The Yorkshire Dales, the North Yorksire Moors and Coast, Durham and Harrogate are all an easy drive. Shop, pub and restaurant 50 yards. More

About the neighbourhood
County House is very close to the parts of the city you will want to visit. All the attractions are within walking distance and the Minster is only 4 minutes walk away. We are in a quiet residential building with an full sized supermarket next door.
Getting around
The York Sightseeing Tourist bus goes past the front of our entrance road but our visitors usually walk as we are close to all the attractions.
