This secure first floor apartment with garage and within the City Walls is a recent conversion of a 19th century riverside mill. It has all the attractions of a modem apartment but retains a traditional cottage style. All the rooms have feature wooden beams, even the hall. Both the lounge and bedroom enjoy river views. The property has a four star rating from the English Tourism Council. Three road bridges cross the river Ouse at York and we have a one bedroom apartment just yards from the Ouse Bridge, that is the middle one that leads straight into the City centre, just a couple of minutes walk. The views over the river are spectacular, especially in summer when all the pleasure boats are running. In the summer you can sit on the balcony having breakfast, lunch or dinner absolutely entranced by the activity in front of you.
