Watch the River Foss flow by your window seat, so close you’ll want to reach out and dabble your hands.

Ground floor high-spec bright/sunny riverside studio feat. the 19th-century brickwork of Rowntree Wharf built 1864.

Quiet yet 2 mins from the centre... the best of both worlds is so rare!

Privately-owned/operated by the same people who run Cocoa River and Cocoa Isabella (both 5* & 10/10).

Shopping or history, cuisine or nightlife, you’ll have a superb stay here in the heart of the city.

The space
It's so peaceful you simply won’t believe you’re only a few minutes from the heart one of the UK’s most popular and friendly cities, winning national awards for eating out (Skosh, Los Moros), craft beer (Brew York), spirits (York Gin), tourism (York Dungeons, York Minster) and even Britain’s best fish and chip shop (Millers).

No wonder Sunday Times readers voted us “Best Place to Live in the UK” and “The perfect mix of heritage and hi-tech”.

Did we mention the free, allocated and secure parking?

Cocoa Lily is brand new but here’s what they say about our other properties in the same building:

“Super clean, stylish, private, better than a hotel. Host went above and beyond with his hospitality”.

“Beautifully appointed apartment in a nice riverside location. Lovely personal touches that make all the difference. Most comfortable bed we have slept in for ages, almost took it home”.

“Close to centre of York so easy to walk everywhere but still quiet”.

Where you’ll be

York, England, United Kingdom

Bang in the centre of beautiful York, a city founded by the Romans in 71 AD and now voted not only one of the friendliest European cities but also “Best Place to Live in the UK” (Sunday Times) described as “the perfect mix of heritage and hi-tech”.

This magnificent university and cathedral town is bustling with national award-winning independent restaurants and bars as well as a high street featuring the major shopping brands.

Not to mention some of the country's (and in some cases, the world's) most popular and historic tourist attractions such as York Minster, The Shambles, The Jorvik Centre, Ghost Walks, three miles of walkable mediaeval city walls, The National Railway Museum and much much more.

Hi there, I've spent a career in leisure and hospitality and believe that it's the little touches that make a difference. Like a personal hand-written greeting, some simple treats to get you going rather than having to search for a shop as soon as you land, and an absolute commitment to cleanliness, comfort and getting a good night's sleep! I have three grown-up daughters and four grandchildren but, in my defence, I started young... I love spending time with my children (and their children), live music, food, travel, keeping active and Match Of The Day.
