  • "The facilities are exceptional - every bit as convenient as being at home, but without the many down-sides!"

    The location is quiet and VERY convenient both for the centre of Ripon AND for taking the dog for lovely walks in the woods and with areas nearby for letting her off to run wild. We're moving to live locally so won't be renting in Ripon again but wouldn't hesitate to recommend Holmefield House as an excellent touring base.

  • "Disappointed that the bath was not useable."

    The shower was ok but apparently the previous weeks guests had broken the bath plug system and it wasn’t fixable until after our stay. As I personally prefer a bath, this was disappointing. Otherwise, the house was spacious and well equipped and in a good location for exploring North Yorkshire.

  • "The cottage was not hugely clean, there was rubbish left in the office on the 3rd floor."

    The home wasn’t suitable for small children, nothing was fixed to the walls, I had to move a bookcase out of the bedroom our children were sleeping in in case they pulled it over. The garden whilst enclosed was very sparse & we didn’t use it as it was directly overlooked from the weird granny annex which was uncomfortable. There was a Lot of every crockery, cutlery & utensils you could need but the high end appliances could do with a proper clean, they all smelled & had mildew.

  • "Disappointing, dirty n definitely wouldn't recommend it."

    Chipped crockery, 2 dirty utensil drawers full of crumbs. Filthy washing machine soap dispenser. Rust encased on bathroom soap dispenser. Layer of dust on towel heater. Settee full of crumbs and lounge carpet would benefit from a shampoo. Only one set of keys. Household rubbish bin full on arrival. In general standards simply not good enough.

Thank you for your comments regarding he carpets we will look into this. Again I am sorry but hope issues you highlighted did not take enjoyment from your holiday. Property Owner

  • "Myself and three fellow golfers visited holmefield house for the second year running."

    It is a superb accomadation with every facility you could possibly want. It is in a quiet location but only a short walk to the centre of Ripon. We always go for three nights and play three different golf courses in the area. The golf courses are also superb.We will be going again next year without doubt. The only possible way you could improve on this property would be a second toilet. Having said that it is never really an issue.
