Mallard Flat

“… perfectly located for attractions in York (all within waking distance), and ideal as a base for visits further afield” September 2018

“The flat itself is clean, well equipped and comfortable throughout. The location is good, very quiet and great to be able to park up and walk to the city centre (about 15 mins). We had a fantastic trip to York and so pleased to have found Mallard flat. Thank you Richard, we are looking forward to booking again soon!” September 2018

Are you looking for a self-catering base in York for a weekend break or longer holiday let? ‘Mallard’ is a beautiful, well-appointed, peaceful, 2-bedroom (sleeps 4 comfortably), non-smoking ground floor flat in the historic city of York. The flat is double-glazed and centrally heated. It is situated on the edge of a landscaped complex of houses and flats. The complex was built about ten years ago and is close to the train station, National Railway Museum and city centre.   We run the flat in tandem with our local housekeeper, Simon, who meets and greets our guests and handles any enquiries or snags that may crop up during your stay.


To date, ‘Mallard’ has been enjoyed by couples, families, friends, business visitors, academics and disabled guests. It is well suited to non-drivers, as you can walk or bus everywhere in the City. It is also ideal for cyclists, and is close to Sustrans National Route 65.  What our guests say:

“The location is excellent especially for train loving James; it was wonderful to be able to walk along the river into the city; being a groundfloor flat makes life easy”. Alex

“The flat was amazing it met our needs really well! It is a great place to stay to explore York! To see the steam train chugging past the window was something our 3 year old never tired of”.  Gaz

“Many thanks for allowing us to share your beautiful home with you. We have had a lovely weekend in a peaceful area but also convenient for tourist attractions – highly recommended”.  Barbara
