    • “Not just "will", AM doing it again.”

    • “Stayed at Cathedral Way for two weeks starting in late July, extending into August (2014). Very nice accommodation for up to six easily. Three nice sized bedrooms, comfortable living space, small but well-done dining area. Furnishings were of nice quality and all the kitchen goods were of good quality and in good condition. Only exception, knives could do with a good sharpening. TV and internet were very well done though there were some dead spots for internet - moving just a little fixed all that. Entry is directly off a not-quite-main street so very easy to get to the market square and only moderate street noise and very quiet at night. There were a couple of "glitches" - light bulb burned out in spectacular fashion - but the slightest thing that wasn't perfect was fixed immediately. Owner checked in with a couple of times to ensure we had everything we needed and offer more towels, etc. should we like. This is an older but very well cared for building. Stairs to the upper unit can be daunting and there are steps within the unit itself so if mobility is an issue think twice. The downstairs unit, though smaller, is more suitable for anyone troubled by stairs. We have booked the lower unit (Cathedral Mews) for a Christmastime break. It was the pleasure of our July/August stay that convinced us to make the trip especially from The U.S. for the ambiance of Ripon and the holiday lodgings.”

    • “A really wonderful place to stay.”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Given the nature of my job, we regularly hire holiday lets and by comparison to most this was excellent. First, it has the advantage of being quite literally in the centre of town, so all the shops, restaurants etc are within very easy walking distance. We were also delighted to have our own allocated parking space which made matters considerably easier. The interior of Cathedral Way was clean, modern and stylish. The weather when we were there was not too good, so it really was a pleasure being able to return to such an agreeable accommodation. The bedrooms were warm and the beds extremely comfortable. We were charmed by little things, such as a welcoming bottle of wine or sufficient tea bags to see us through our weeks stay. My only criticism is that if you are especially tall, you needed to take care of one or two beams throughout the property.”

    • “Best Self Catering Ever”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Photos do not do justice to this apartment. It is spotlessly clean and everything you need and more is provided and in excellent condition. Beds are fresh and comfortable and you could not find softer and fluffier towels. The location is very central and only one minute from the centre of Ripon and as an added bonus has its own parking. Quirky and character building and could not recommend it more.”

    • “Apartment is clean, comfortable and has everything you will need. It also has plenty of little extras which show that the owner goes that extra mile for guests, there are board games, plenty of DVDs, free view tv and good information on local restaurants/pubs/attractions. We enjoyed our stay so much that I was tempted to leave no review so it would be easier for us to book in future, but honesty is the best policy. The location in the centre of Ripon is ideal with several good restaurants within easy walking distance. Marios is excellent both service and food and very reasonably priced. Can't wait for our next visit, and this time I will take bikes for the miles of cycle paths and a fishing rod for the local rivers.”

    • “Great base for touring the Dales!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Cathedral Way is a lovely modern apartment right in the centre of Ripon with every mod-con you could need - three comfy bedrooms, a good hot shower, freeview tv and two parking spaces, all within walking distance of the Market Place. Thoughtful touches like cosy throws and a welcome tray. There's lots of literature on attractions, plenty of books to read and some games and the use of the little courtyard garden. All in all a perfect comfy and warm retreat after a day exploring the area. I can highly recommend this property, it was a real home-from-home.”

    • “Beautiful, central flat in Ripon”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We had a wonderful stay in Cathedral Way. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner and she made sure our stay was special with a great welcome basket of goodies. The rooms were beautifully furnished and everything had been thought of, a great range of Dvds and local tourist information. The car parking in the centre of town is great and being just off the Market place means a wonderful variety of restaurants on a 2-3 minute walk of the front door. If you are budget conscious the supermarket is off the square and the cooking facilities are great too. It is a wonderful spot to take off into the Dales and a days drive to go into the Yorkshire moors.”

    • “We couldn't have asked for more in Cathedral Way - great apartment (actually its much bigger than I expected), well furnished with clean, modern furniture and really close to pubs, restaurants and, in our case, the diamond jubilee celebrations in Ripon's market square. Lots to do nearby. The only downside of this apartment is that I am quite tall at 6'5" so the low doors and beams were testing at times, but that would not put me off visiting again.”
