The delightful York Hop Store; self catering apartment is all on one level, on the second floor of the award-winning Ogleforth Brewery conversion, with access by lift or stairs. The generous open plan living area is light and airy, thanks to the large warehouse windows and Juliet balcony that look out over the York Minster precinct. These, plus the high, beamed ceilings create a real sense of space that is enhanced by the soft neutral tones and bold splashes of colour chosen for the furnishings, whilst underfloor heating keeps each room warm throughout. Deep sofas offer ample seating for four, and these are complemented by modern light oak furniture and rich brown leather chairs in the dining area. Home entertainment is catered for with a flat screen Freeview television, a DVD player, an iPod docking station and free WiFi broadband. We also provide a free telephone for calls within the UK. Nothing has been overlooked in the superb solid oak kitchen area. Classic cookware, cutlery, crockery and glassware will add style to a simple brunch, a romantic dinner, or even a quick and easy take-away.
The master bedroom is generously proportioned, with a king-size bed, matching bespoke built-in wardrobe, dressing table and bedside cabinets, and a flat screen television, iPod dock/DAB radio alarm. Contemporary, easy to close internal shutters let in as much or as little light as you wish and natural-fibre luxury bed linen, soft Egyptian cotton towels, cosy duvets, and warm Yorkshire-made wool throws help ensure a relaxing and good night's sleep. (For the comfort of guests with allergies, no feather pillows or duvets are used). The large en suite shower room is beautifully tiled, naturally lit, and has a powerful shower and quality fittings. The twin bedroom, with Minster views, also provides similar guest comforts in addition to internal easy-to-use shutters, flat screen television and iPod dock/DAB radio alarm system. A second bathroom, serves the twin bedroom and has a bath with powerful shower over and the same tasteful tiling and fittings. There is a free telephone service and free WiFi for use with your own laptop. The small but charming courtyard area with outdoor furniture, shared with other residents and guests, provides an ideal spot for relaxing.
