  • "A fabulous appointed apartment in easy walking distance from York even for us creaky oldies."

    The pictures do not do it justice as the upgrade it has had is excellent. The bed is extremely comfortable and the shower excellent. Parking place is very good and a bonus when visiting York. Last but not least thank you for the fizz and card for my birthday it was a fantastic surprise. If I was visiting York again I would look to book here in an instant

    Thank you for your lovely comments and 100% positive rating. We really appreciate it, the feeling is most definitely mutual as you rate 100% positive as guests too. Thank you for leaving the place spotlessly clean and as you found it. We look forward to welcoming you back next year. Glad you appreciated the recent upgrades, as it is our second home and not just an investment property we want it to be as comfortable as possible, hence we go the extra mile. This is for our own selfish reasons as much as anything, we stay there as much as we can ourselves, but it does benefit our guests too! Particularly the king size bed with the most awarded mattress ever and our favourite, the Alexander and James sofas. Glad you enjoyed the fizz and had a fab birthday at the bolt hole, Thanks again :) Property Owner

  • "Excellent flat in all respects:easy walk from railway station, but also good parking space; close to centre of town, but quiet(as long as you're OK with occasional trains!"

    ); spotlessly clean, cosy, warm. The only improvement we would make would be better lighting(maybe an extra lamp?) as it wasn't really possible for two people to read in the evenings. But we would definitely come again

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are really glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back. We take on board your feedback with regards to the lamp and glad it hasn't put you off wanting to return. Guests usually appreciate convenient parking space and the savings on car parking fees which can be expensive in York city centre. You mention the occasional train, yes there is around one an hour through the day, as it is only a local branch line (none through the night) however, a fair point thank you. It has not been mentioned before by previous guests, apart from them enjoying the steam trains when they pass. Looking forward to your return. Property Owner

  • "Comfortable apartment with designated parking space."

    This means you can leave the car to walk around York to visit all the interesting places, shops and open spaces. Recommend the slow stroll by the river or the ten minute quicker route by Bootham. Shops cafes restaurant river and train station all within easy reach. Quiet location but not too far from everything you need. And you can see the top of the Minister through the trees!

    Thank you for your fantastic comments and 100% positive feedback and that the Bolthole exceeded your expectations. We certainly recommend you 100% as guests. It sounds like you had a wonderful stay and thoroughly enjoyed what the local area had to offer. We also love the river walks and local cafes and restaurants when we stay at the Bolthole ourselves. Thank you so much and we look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

    It is cosy, comfortable and well furnished. It is in a quiet street, a short walk into York Minster area. We enjoyed being able to leave the car in it’s allocated parking place, great to have parking included in the cost. We loved our week spent exploring York, coming back to stretch out on comfy settees, relaxing with a glass of wine. Loads of nice places to eat nearby with recommendations from the owner also. Will definitely be back.

    A delightful (flat) walk into the city taking no more than 10 minutes and even closer for a local shop, eateries and some excellent independent shops. The apartment itself was tastefully decorated with plenty of living space. The owners have gone to great care to make you feel at home and we commented that we felt like we were staying in their home as opposed to a holiday let.

  • "Bootham Bolt Hole is a fabulous apartment situated in a beautiful area of York."

    The locality means that once you park your car in its own reserved parking space you can navigate the city easily on foot. Seeing the Minster from the lounge window is a delight and a reminder of just how special this city is. The apartment is furnished to the highest standards and offers total comfort and relaxation in a quiet street, yet only a few steps from the bustling city centre. With dishwasher, washing machine, freezer, full central heating, constant hot water, Sky TV .... I cannot think of anything which is missing. The Bolt Hole comes with attentive friendly owners who checked in that all was well at the start of our week and wished us well at the end.

    Thanks to Chris, who sorted this out by booking us one night in a hotel nearby. Not the best start to our holiday, but it sorted the mess out. Chris added an extra day to our stay in his Bootham Bolt Hole, enabling us to enjoy a full week there. We loved York and didn't need to use our car once. Loved the trains too!

A superb river walk is accessed at the bottom of Bootham Terrace and well worth a visit, we walked all the way to Bishopgate and then got a taxi back, dont miss. The apartment itself was clean, well equipped and comfortable with fine views towards The Minster. Car parking at the property was a bonus. Highly recommendable.

  • "Just returned from a fabulous pre Christmas break at Bootham Bolt hole."

    As soon as we walked into the property we were impressed by the decor and space. It was a real home from home and within easy walking distance to the city (5 to 10 mins) it was a perfect base. Chris the owner was very helpful before, during and at the end of our stay. He was able to sort out a minor issue very quickly over the phone but was not at all intrusive. Everything you could need for a comfortable stay was available in the property and the little extras such as tea, coffee and milk were a welcome addition. The property had been decorated for Christmas too which made it even more special. The only downside was the noise from the train line at the front of the property but it certainly didn’t affect our stay and some noise is to be expected in a busy city. The allocated parking space is a must if traveling by car and we made full use of it. The car didn’t move from arriving to leaving but the train station is only a short walk away too. I would highly recommend the property and would book here again without hesitation if it was available. Thank you Chris for the use of your lovely home.

The property

Bootham Bolt Hole is a second floor apartment nestled in a peaceful backwater, located in a quiet and leafy street, within the wonderful and historic city of York.

This superb apartment is an ideal base for a couple, it's only a short stroll to the plethora of attractions in this most beautiful city.

This contemporary apartment has a boutique hotel feel, the double bedroom offers a haven of comfort with a heavenly pocket strung mattress.

The separate shower room has a spa shower with waterfall feature, and the open plan living area is the perfect space to dine, relax and stream your favourite movie onto the Smart TV, whilst relaxing with a glass of wine.

Also from the lovely wooden double glazed sash window, which are wrapped with designer velvet full length curtains you can partially see the Minster during much of the year.

You're within an easy ten minute walk of most of York's major attractions, and although this property has allocated free car parking there's no need to take your car as it's only a 5 to 10 minute stroll from York train station, via a footbridge.

There's so much to see and do with the museum gardens, Yorkshire Museum, art gallery, River Ouse and Theatre Royal within 500 metres, and the famous York Minster is less than 650 metres from door to door.

A wonderful apartment for exploring York and beyond!

About the location

YORK

Leeds 25 miles;

The city of York needs no recommendation, for it teems with interest for the holidaymaker: the Minster, its medieval walls, boat trips on the River Ouse, York Races, museums(including the famous National Railway Museum and the Castle Museum), and the internationally-renowned Jorvik Viking Centre and its "time trip" experience. Summer and winter, there is something to fascinate the whole family. Explore York’s quaint streets and hidden corners, or take an excursion further afield to the Dales, Moors or the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby and Filey. Yorkshire is rich in stately homes, with Harewood House and Castle Howard just two of several within an hour’s drive. A cycling city boasting two theatres, character pubs and great shopping, York has it all.
