4 Bedroom Victorian Townhouse

Self Catering Holiday Accommodation - Sleeps 8 adult guests, + 2 infants

Children any age welcome.



This newly refurbished Victorian Townhouse is now a beautiful holiday home offering guests wonderful accommodation from which to enjoy our city.

The interior design of The City Escape is stunning, offering guests the perfect place to relax and enjoy, inside and out.

There are 4 sumptuous bedrooms, including a rarely found king bedroom with an en-suite shower room at ground floor level, overlooking the garden area. Also at ground floor is the entrance hallway, a large open plan and super-comfortable sitting-dining room, brand new kitchen and a lovely south-west facing walled courtyard garden.

Upstairs is a further king bedroom and a twin bedroom, both sumptuously designed, and a totally unique kids room with 43” Smart TV, X-Box, further gaming and a large corner sofa-bed. There is an immaculate family bathroom with both a bath and a shower unit, and also a separate cloakroom both with underfloor heating.

Located on a quiet Victorian residential street, only a 10 minute walk to the city at Bootham Bar (Bar in Jorvik means Gate!), The City Escape is exactly what it says - a truly wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is a place to which guests will return, time and time again.

Guests can stay for two nights or more and can arrive any available day. (Please note restrictions apply at Christmas and New Year.)

The property is perfect for reunions, gatherings and get-togethers for family or friends. It is exceedingly close to Number 41 for any larger group needs.



The City Escape is a beautiful newly refurbished Victorian Townhouse, located just off Bootham, which is the main historic city entrance road from the north ring road/A19, and is just about a 10 minute walk from the city’s historic Bootham Bar entrance gate to the city, where the Theatre Royal and Art Gallery are located. It is also just a short walk to the Museum Gardens and the river area for river walks. Close by, in the opposite direction away from town, are a few lovely specialist shops, delis and cafes.

The accommodation itself is spread over two floors and is a Tardis! Furnished to the highest of standards it offers lots of space, quality and comfort, inside and out.

The main entrance door leads from the front garden into an entrance lobby area and then into a lovely long hallway with beautiful tiling. The super-comfortable sitting room, seating seven guests, looks over the front of the property through large windows. There is also a 43” Smart TV with Netflix and an electric wood-wood-burning effect fire. The sitting room is open plan with the dining room, which offers a large dining space for up to eight guests. French doors from the dining room lead into the private south-west facing walled courtyard garden, where there is seating and lighting. The superb modern kitchen offers everything a guest could need, and from which there is a door leading into the courtyard garden.

At the rear of the property, at ground floor level, is a spacious king sized bedroom, overlooking the garden area, with a brand new en-suite shower room.

On the first floor is a further king bedroom and a twin bedroom. Both are beautifully furnished with high quality bed linen and everything needed for a relaxing sleep.

There is also a 4th bedroom/kids room offering a 43” Smart TV with Netflix, an X-box and further entertainment for the kids, with a large corner sofa bed.

There is also a brand new immaculate family bathroom with a bath, a shower unit and sink, plus a separate cloakroom, both with underfloor heating.

Parking for one vehicle is on the street at the front of the property using a permit. An additional vehicle may also be able to park on nearby streets at the front of the property where a permit is not required, or at nearby Marygate car-park.

This really is a tremendous holiday property offering guests a terrific location from which to explore York, and to be away from the hubbub at night.
