Everything you need is close by....

We're situated in a vibrant bustling area just outside the city centre. 

Chill out in one of the superb local cafes and restaurants in York's award winning  'Bishy Road'

At the bottom of our street, take a stroll along 'Bishy Road' as it's affectionately known. With a variety of independently owned shops and cafés it has recently been voted the third best High Street in the UK.

Treat yourself to some of Bepe's delicious homemade ice cream at Trinacria, Steve's mouth watering lunches, gorgeous freshly made cakes and pastries at The Pig and Pastry and fine coffee at Stanley and Ramona.

Relax in Rowntree Park or stroll along the river

Walk through pretty Rowntree Park and discover the Reading Cafe, one of our hidden gems, with a great supply of books and newspapers and a view of the ornate lake.

Crack open a bottle of wine and watch the sun go down on Millennium Bridge and watch the party goers on the riverboats pass beneath.

Jump on our bikes and ride along the river into York or enjoy the many cylce paths that lead to Bishopthorpe, the Knavesmire, Naburn Marina, the National Trust, Beningborough Hall and many other beautiful places. 

Walk into town along the beautifully preserved city walls - if you're feeling really energetic you can walk the whole 3.4 km of the wall! Or hop on the York sightseeing bus to get great views of the whole city.
