  • "Lovely accommodation."

    Plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses, cooking utensils. Very clean and clear information provided. Nice little back Pateo. Very near to ripon cathedral and centre. Restaurants within 5 mins walk. We enjoyed a canal trip and a walk along the river at the end of the road. Excellent bus service. We caught the bus to Harrogate. Central position for visiting various other parts of the Dales. Have already recommended to some friends and would definitely return to this accommodation if visiting the area again.

  • "Our stay in Ripon at no 8 was great."

    The location is ideal with everything within walking distance. The house is very clean and comfortable and well equipped We have friends a five minutes walk away so it was lovely to meet up with them. Definitely will book another stay at no 8.

  • "A good place to put your head down at night."

    Ideal for Ripon town centre. Some elements of stay needed improvement. Furniture uncomfortable(including beds, pillows and sofas). Some kitchen gear needs replacing. Welcome pack very basic. A hairdryer would have been helpful. Neighbours very loud/noisy, and have dogs that bark constantly, we couldn’t sit in the courtyard because of this.

  • "Lovely house in a pleasant complex very handy for the city centre."

    Well equipped and comfortable. Useful courtyard at the back for outside dining but on our stay, next door’s dog took exception to our dogs (that weren’t barking) and barked continuously even though the fencing obscured sight of them. Nothing much the owners could do about that I guess. Good parking facility though could be tight if all the spaces were occupied I imagine. Would definitely book again.

  • "Lovely location for exploring Ripon and the area."

    The house was ideal for the two of us and the dogs. Just a minor point it would be great if there was salt, pepper and vinegar supplied in the kitchen as it is not always something you bring with you.

  • "Lovely holiday home in an excellent location."

    Only a very short walk to the shops, pubs and restaurants of Ripon. We did a lovely walk to Fountains Abbey, straight from the property, which I would highly recommend. The property was comfortable, and the kitchen well equipped. I would have preferred to see a dressing table in the main bedroom, but I worked round it by bringing a dining chair up! A couple of side tables in the lounge would also have been good. Overall a lovely stay.

  • "The only downside to our visit was the property had not been cleaned by the time we arrived."

    I had to ring the owner to inform them of this. He apologized for this and said there had been a miscommunication between Sykes and the owners. Cleaners did arrive by 17-00 and completed cleaning within the hour.

  • "It would have been helpful if the parking places for the cars were explained before you left for the holiday rather than having to read it in the welcome brochure as they were in 2 separate areas not at all visible on arrival."

    The house was lovely but as I cook evening meals I think spare plates, small pudding bowls, a measuring jug, would Pyrex bowl be helpful. We bought bits and pieces and brought them home with us. The spacious fridge, good cooker and hob was excellent I would recommend this property for a holiday.

    It was really convenient having stones parking space. Ripon is a great location to explore Yorkshire. We met the hosts dad and he was very helpful and friendly. A great place to stay would recommend.

  • "We had a lovely stay at 8 Williamson Drive."

    The cottage is in a great location, just a few minutes walk to shops, restaurants, pubs, parks and play areas. The cottage was clean and provided all that we needed for a comfortable stay. It was good to see that the owners are keen to meet the needs of their guests. A previous review mentioned the need for a dining table in the cottage so we were pleased to see that a fold out table and chairs had been provided and other household items were added at the beginning of our stay. A lovely place to stay, and dog friendly too!

  • "This is a very good place to stay, but a few additions would make it even better."

    The lounge needs a dining table and chairs. A couple can just about manage on the kitchen breakfast bar (we did), but a family could not. The kitchen needs a frying pan, extra saucepan, oven glove, potato peeler, spatula. In the bathroom, the washbasin plug doesn't fit properly, and it also needs to be unblocked with a plunger. Both bedrooms need a light bulb replacing, as does the lounge. We wanted to recycle items, but the box and bag mentioned in the folder were not in the cupboard under the stairs, so we took our recycling home.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. All kitchen equipment has been added to the property. A folding table and four chairs has been added for use either in the living/dining room or in the garden. We have also ordered a clothes rail for the second bedroom and replaced the plug in the bathroom sink. Once again thank you for your feedback. Property Owner
