Atelier 22 York

I know we keep saying this about our places to stay, but this self-catering townhouse is extra special. A gorgeous atelier in a tranquil spot yet just a few minutes walk from the river, the railway station, Museum Gardens and all the sites and interests of York.

Anita and David are both artists, they’re also friends of ours, which means we’ve watched them painstakingly create this fabulous, self-contained one bedroom apartment in the basement of their five storey Victorian terrace.

By basement, don’t think dingy; there is plenty of space and light across the spacious sitting room/bedroom which has been divided by a set of beautiful 18th century chateau doors. The sitting room is dominated by an off-white linen Chesterfield, the bedroom by a French mahogany-frame bed dressed with pure linen sheets. You want more? There’s a gorgeous wet-room style shower, underfloor heating and eco toiletries.

The small but well-equipped kitchen is off the main sitting room and while the apartment is primarily for self-catering Anita and David provide a breakfast hamper of artisan bread, cereals, juice, organic eggs and Betty’s tea and coffee.

Everywhere there are distinctive features: original art, handmade lamps, solid wood floors, antique rugs, reminding you that Anita and David are artists who have a creative eye and an attention to detail. With free Wi-Fi and free parking in the centre of York, it’s just about the perfect York city centre stay. To book Atelier22 email

How Much? £140 per night, £600 a week.

Kid's Stuff? It's more a romantic hideaway

Well Placed? Absolutely. A stroll through the lovely Museum Gardens to the heart of the city and all it has to offer. Close to the river and the railway station. No need for a car here.

Good Grub? Delicious breakfast hamper. Star Inn the City, Brew and Brownie, Mannion & Co and Betty's a stroll  away.
