The space

The ice cream factory, York

Large room in city centre with your own private bathroom.

Your room is on the sunny second floor with a double bed plus an airbed, comfy chair, wardrobe, large glass table and 40 inch TV with DVD. On the same floor is your own private bathroom with separate bath and shower. There is unlimited wifi throughout the house.

Located within York city walls in a quiet street, our home was once a 1940's built Italian ice cream factory which we converted into a unique three-bed house. It's an interesting and spacious home, with a contemporary feel and we've tried to retain some of the special character of the original building.

We are a few minutes walk from the railway station, right amongst the shops, bars, clubs and restaurants, in fact a short walk from most of York's attractions.

We are 1.9 miles from York University, 1 mile from St Johns University, 1.5 miles to York Racecourse and only 10 minutes walk to York's Minster.

On the ground floor is your own private mini kitchen with fridge, microwave oven, grill, toaster and kettle, plus a table for two. You get your own key, so come and go as you please. We are happy to chat if you need any help, but we also understand that you want your own space.

Fresh bed linen and towels are provided.

This is a great location, close to sites of interest in York. The room is large, clean, quiet, and has its own washroom. Mike provided many useful suggestions for things to see (including his own cafe/bar, Fossgate Social, which is also worth a visit).

I've lived at the ice cream factory for 6 years, slowly getting the place into shape. I'm relaxed and easy going. Pop in and say hi, or keep yourselves to yourselves, I don’t mind. I own and operate a small bar in town and brew craft beer on the ground floor of the The Icecre…
