There's a host of attractions within walking distance including York Minster, Jorvik Viking Centre and National Railway Museum. Bootham Bolt Hole is a delightful apartment for a couple on a romantic retreat.


Brilliant apartment for 2 persons
The location of this apartment is central only 5 minutes walk from the minister, but is not on a busy road so very relaxing. You have all the amenities on your doorstep yet loads of great walks. The apartment has everything you need for a self catering holiday. We had a great time in York mostly down to having a great apartment to stay in. We will definitely want to stay here again.

Outstanding stay in every way.
This apartment is ideal for those couples looking for a relaxing or active few days away in a beautiful city. The apartment is in a great location for exploring the city and surrounding area, and the accommodation is spacious, well presented and very comfortable. A bonus at this property was the fact there was parking at the property, whereas a lot of the properties in York didn?t provide parking or there was an additional charge. We ate out a couple of evenings and I can highly recommend both restaurants which are in walking distance of the apartment. Little Italy, Italian obviously and a nice Indian restaurant called Raj near the minster. Another great find was the Burr coffee shop nearby, and their Eggs Benedict are just amazing.

Superb! classy, comfortable & contemporary.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Our family are repeat visitors to Bootham bolt hole, enough said! Well ok, the reviews have to be a minimum 100 characters. Lol. Love the location. Short walk to the Minster/river and the sights of York. lovely apartment that our family of 4 always enjoy, the main bed is top quality and even the sofa bed is surprisingly good. This has the usual holiday rental key safe, handy so not stuck to ridged check in/out times. This property is as it says in the description, nestled in a quiet backwater, has a free off street reserved parking bay. We have stayed in other flats in York but we have found them noisy if right in the centre and parking was up to £12 per 24hrs so adds up over the week also you have to drive round looking for a space. Not a worry with the bolt hole. I know this is the owners actual holiday home, we find that reassuring as they would want everything to be just right for when they stay. A genuine home from home. The fixtures are all good quality and are clearly expensive, (I love the wardrobe), the TV is a large curved screen Samsung smart internet type. Good for Netflix. The dinning set is the trendy industrial style. The bathroom is gorgeous and the shower is amazing. The owners have always been very approachable, friendly & happy to give recommendations etc. Their advice to visit Helmsley, Sutton bank, Goathland and Whitby was spot on. We definitely highly recommend & do so to our Friends & family. We are already booked again for our next trip. Now that's enough said!

Absolutely superb accommodation & location
Central location with a 5 minute stroll through the museum gardens, river bank or Bootham to the centre of York. Easy check in/out with a key safe, awesome waterfall shower (i could stay in it all day), free allocated parking saves a fortune in York, very comfortable, classy, light and airy. Close enough to the attractions yet just tucked away in a peaceful leafy lane. No lift but only two flights of stairs so no problem for us. every thing you need, free tea & coffee, 40" smart TV, free wifi, comfortable beds. Highly recommended. One of the best self catering accommodation properties we've stayed in.

Fantastic property, location and owners
The Bolt Hole is 10 min walk from the City Walls so there is no need for your car once you have parked up in the reserved space in the car park behind the building. From the moment we were greeted by the owners to leaving we could not fault the place. Janine and Chris explained everything to us and were a phone call away if needed. We didnt need them as it was perfect. The rooms are immaculate with everything we needed. Beds were comfortable. We used the day bed and pull out bed too which were more than adequate for us all and had excellent nights sleep. The shower was amazing. There was enough hot water for the four of us. We stayed for a week as we got married in the beautuful City and Janine and Chris made our stay extra special. This accommodation is so much nicer than a lot of Hotels and Bed & Breakfasts we have stayed in over the years in York and we have stayed in a lot. We hIghly recommend staying here. It is quiet, has everything you need and the perfect place to either just relax or take a walk into the City to sightsee. Thank you for having us. We will definately be booking another stay with you in 2018 ... hopefully our first Wedding Anniversary
