Located on Micklegate, and built in the 1500s when this would have been the main entrance into York from the old London Road. The property was restored in 1967 and later acquired by the York Conservation Trust.
From the front entrance, there is a stone flagged corridor leading to the yard at the back, and from this the entrance to the apartment above the antique shop. There is a large kitchen diner on the 1st Floor with plenty of room to sit and relax over a meal, the main double bedroom and a shower room. The second floor has a twin and a double bedroom, along with another shower room, and the 3rd Floor attic room has been furnished as a living room with two leather armchairs and bean bags. The smart TV can be used to view Netflix and Amazon Prime etc – so don’t forget your login details.
All the rooms feature old exposed beams, but please remember this a very old property which has settled over the years, so along with these features there are also uneven stairs and wonky floors – you will have to watch your head up the stairs, so please be careful..
Micklegate is within the city walls, and a lively spot with lots of bars and the best rated restaurant in town just across the road. Only 5 minutes walk into the centre of York and close to all the main historic attractions. Micklegate is also 5 minutes walk from York train station.
There is short term parking on the street outside on a meter, and longer term parking just a few minutes walk away in the Nunnery Lane Carpark.
