Majestic York

On your doorstep

There aren't many locations that offer you the best of all worlds - the joys of a local community, the diversity of a vibrant city and the breathing space of rolling countryside...

In York you've got it all. Spend your afternoon walking the ancient city walls stopping at one of the many pubs or cafes along the way to taste the best of what Yorkshire has to offer.

Outside of the city there's an abundance of countryside to explore with the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales National Park's within easy reach.

An historic gem

Whether you're local to York or new to the city, the depth of its history never fails to amaze. Combine that with contemporary shopping and leisure opportunities you'll see why it's such a fantastic place to live.

The Shambles, one of the best preserved medieval shopping streets in Europe, rubs shoulders with the latest brands. Great pubs and bars (one for every day of the year, so the saying goes) bump horns with a Viking past while Bettys, famous for its Fat Rascals, gazes at the spire of York Minster.


Situated on the outskirts of the city centre, The Cocoa Works is a ten-minute cycle ride from the cobbled streets of the Shambles and York Minster, whose spires and towers can be seen soaring above the York skyline. 

Across the city you'll find York racecourse and the mainline station, which is served by a regular bus service from your doorstep, from there you can get to anywhere in the country.
