Because we are such a small set up with only one apartment, we are able to control every aspect of guests' communication and environment. The introduction of Touchstay, has been a great boost in helping guests understand the apartment and local area. We supply a 'covid pack' of masks, gloves and small portable hand sanitiser for each set of guests. We have been able to operate safely throughout the pandemic so far, and hope to continue to do so.
Our Inspector's view
Stay somewhere a little bit different – a ground-floor, one-bedroom, luxury apartment created from the old public rooms of this historic station. Visit the North Yorkshire Moors, coast and wolds, Castle Howard, York and the lovely market towns of Malton, Beverley, Helmsley and Thirsk. The apartment will appeal to walkers, cyclists, nature lovers and train enthusiasts. Dogs are positively welcomed.

About the area
Discover North Yorkshire
North Yorkshire, with its two National Parks and two designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is England’s largest county and one of the most rural. This is prime walking country, from the heather-clad heights of the North York Moors to the limestone country that is so typical of the Yorkshire Dales – a place of contrasts and discoveries, of history and legend.
The coastline offers its own treasures, from the fishing villages of Staithes and Robin Hood Bay to Scarborough, one time Regency spa and Victorian bathing resort. In the 1890s, the quaint but bustling town of Whitby provided inspiration for Bram Stoker, who set much of his novel, Dracula, in the town. Wizarding enthusiasts head to the village of Goathland, which is the setting for the Hogwarts Express stop at Hogsmeade station in the Harry Potter films.
York is a city of immense historical significance. It was capital of the British province under the Romans in AD 71, a Viking settlement in the 10th century, and in the Middle Ages its prosperity depended on the wool trade. Its city walls date from the 14th century and are among the finest in Europe. However, the gothic Minster, built between 1220 and 1470, is York’s crowning glory.
