Offering spacious accommodation perfect for larger families and groups in the heart of York, Stakesby Holiday Flats are three apartments sleeping 2 to 12 within a beautifully appointed large Victorian house. The property sits in a peaceful residential area only a 10 minute stroll from the medieval city walls and the city's southern entrance at Micklegate Bar. Pubs, shops, restaurants and amenities are all nearby, and Stakesby is ideally close to York Racecourse and the National Railway Museum. Fast, regular bus links into the city centre are only a 2 minute walk away, and these fully equipped apartments come with free fibre optic WiFi broadband (available 24 hours) and free on-street parking adjacent.

"I booked Stakesby Holiday Flats for a friend’s Hen Party from the initial enquiry which was helpful, efficient and easy to contact and ask questions. All straightforward and easy to book. With varying budgets for 8 of us to stay in the wonderful annex it had everything we required. And at a price that’s suitable for all. Even for the hard to please, they couldn’t find fault. Clean and comfortable – plenty of space for 8 women to get ready. No easy feat.
A lounge area we could all sit comfortably and relax. (There is also another part to the house for larger groups.) But the Annex is perfect!! Really set the mood for an enjoyable weekend. Even an outside area that if the weather had been a little nicer we could have enjoyed more. Not too far from the town centre, easy to take a steady walk, plenty of buses and not too far for a taxi. We couldn’t have asked for more.
Also the Tour De Yorkshire was in town so accommodation was busy and expensive for the 2 nights we required, and some place refused to take groups. (Especially Hen parties). I would highly recommend for groups as you are all together (can only speak for the annex) rather than in a hotel, if you can even get in the same accommodation. The girls who visited all said they would love to make an annual event with Stakesby House as the venue!!!! So, I suggest you try to beat us to it. Highly Recommended!!!!!".

"I booked this venue for a catch-up of 12 friends, the accommodation was a good size, cleanliness was perfect and we were left to enjoy our weekend to ourselves. The garden was perfect with a decent gas powered BBQ. Would definitely recommend for an affordable stay close to York city centre". Matthew Hampson - Wednesday 6th of January 2016
"Loved this apartment. We've stayed for 2 hen dos but it's perfect for families too! Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for accommodation within walking distance to York. It's clean and the owner is friendly and helpful". Lizzie Richardson - Monday 4th January 2016.
"I spent a fabulous weekend in York staying in Stakesby Holiday Flat on St Georges Place with the girls from work.
The flat was great and we had an excellent time". Melanie Lucas - Thursday 1st October 2009.
"I arrived from Saudi Arabia with my twin daughters, we enjoyed our stay, it was nice and comfortable, very close to the city, the rooms were very clean and tidy and the kitchen had all we need to enjoy our meals at home. The host Anthony was very generous and kind with us. I would definitely recommend this flat for couples travelling with children and I'm looking forward to coming again". Aziza, Hala, Darina - Monday 4th May 2009.
I booked Bishopfields Garden Flat at Stakesby, St Georges Place, for my elderly relatives as we were going to a big family wedding. They stayed there for 4 nights and were extremely comfortable. This basement flat has 3 large bedrooms, a walk in shower with bath and w.c. It has a patio area with furniture and barbecue which unfortunately they did not have time to enjoy! They were very happy during their stay and would certainly recommend it - particulary for the less mobile". Janie Haroer - Wednesday 22nd April 2009.
