2 Bedroom Apartment

5 Star Self Catering Holiday Accommodation - Sleeps 4 max plus a baby (children welcome)


In a perfect location from which to explore and enjoy all that York has to offer, The King’s Apartment, which overlooks the famous and historic King’s Square, is a well established, highly regarded property offered by multi-award winning York Luxury Holidays, for unrivalled holiday accommodation in York.

On the first floor of a beautifully converted Georgian building, your lounge and kitchen 'floor to ceiling' windows open out directly onto the square. The beating heart of York throughout the ages, King’s Square still plays host to talented street artists during the daytime, which adds an energetic vibe to the place and provides the perfect backdrop for you to indulge in a relaxing session of people watching.Or you can venture minutes out of the front door and explore the many historical, cultural and culinary sites within the City walls. You really don’t have to go far to soak up the magic of this city full of surprises.  Just twenty seconds away is the famous Shambles, leading down to the unusually named Whip-Ma-Whop-Ma-Gate (one of the smallest streets in York). Continue down Fossgate and you are onto what is fast becoming known as ‘Restaurant Street’, where there are many interesting eateries, ranging from Indian and Thai, to French, Italian, Polish and Nepalese! Leave the apartmentin the opposite direction and just a few minutes brings you to The Minster, the recently refurbished Theatre Royal, Betty’s Tea Shop or the Yorkshire Museum. You really can’t get much more central than this!



The King’s Apartment is just one of four apartments in this imposing property, which has been redeveloped to a very high specification.It offers a modern and luxurious interior, beautifully furnished throughout with luxurious deep pile carpet underfoot and with heating at your control.

With free parking a short walk away, this magnificent two bedroom property is accessed from Church Street (just off King’s Square), through the building’s secure entrance door and up a flight of stairs to the first floor.  

From the spacious first floor landing you will enter the apartment via a hallway that leads to two sumptuous bedrooms, both with high quality king sized beds, TVs and original Georgian feature windows.  The masterbedroom has a beautiful ensuite with shower and a much prized dressing room.  There is also an attractive separate family bathroom, with bath and shower over.The living-dining area has full floor to ceiling double-glazed sash windows offering stunning views of King’s Square.  If you like people watching this is the place to stay in York!  The beautiful living area has two extremely comfortable recliner chairs and a large sofa, and there is a lovely wooden dining table, which seats four.  The open plan kitchen is of a very high spec with a kitchen bar area and equipped with everything you could possibly need to create a delicious meal (though with the enormous variety of cafes and restaurants on your doorstep, you probably won’t want to use it much!) There is also the added advantage of a separate utility room with a washer-drier.

Guests can stay for two nights or more, and can arrive any available day.

Children and babies are welcome (and we are right next door to York’s Chocolate Story, a big plus for the younger ones).

This is a unique property offering guests a high standard of accommodation. With its superb location, wrap-around views andhome comforts, it offers an experience to be cherished and, judging by the high rate of returning customers, one to be repeated!
