  • "We would highly recommend this property."

    The location was perfect, quiet and peaceful with a pleasant short walk through the cathedral grounds to the town centre. It was an ideal base for exploring this part of Yorkshire. The facilities at the apartment provided everything required including parking. We would hope to return sometime in the future.

  • "We had a lovely stay here."

    The apartment was very clean and there were welcoming gifts such as milk, tea, coffee, biscuits and flowers which were a nice touch. The position of it near the canal and so close to the centre of Ripon was ideal. It also made a great base to explore other areas such as Fountains Abbey, Harrogate, York and Durham. There is a regular bus nearby to Harrogate if you want a day off driving. Would recommend this place to others.

  • "The flat has a good location, it is bright and nicely furnished."

    Communication with the landlord was easy and friendly. Unfortunately, the bedrooms face the street and the windows are not very soundproof. The flat needs more attention in general. The kitchen desperately needs new pans and kitchen tools. The Teflon pans are so encrusted and scratched - you don't want to cook with them. The kettle urgently needs descaling. The extractor fan: don't touch it! We had to clean a lot before we could start cooking. The seal on the glass partition by the bathtub: Oh no! Etc.

    I am sorry you found problems with cleanliness. I will forward your comments to the housekeeper. My wife is going to do the change - over this week and will attend to all the points you raise. I will accompany her to attend to any other problems. We do value feedback from our guests and apologise for the lack of attention to detail. Thank you for your helpful comments. Property Owner

    Spotlessly clean, comfortable and airy. Tastefully furnished with nice pictures also! Best holiday rental we have stayed in. Very nice welcome of wine, flowers, biscuits and milk - gratefully received after a long journey from Kent. Lovely touch. Access to the apartment was easy but the key safe is a bit stiff and took me a few attempts- two hands needed!

  • "The apartment is very well equiped and good located, at the edge of the towncentre, next to Ripon Canal and very close to the Skell River."

    The Yorkshire Dales can be entered by several, very nice routes. We like to stay in a town that is not too big (like Ripon), with a good choice of shops, restaurants and pubs and not too far from walking possibilities. We enjoyed making trips every day to historical towns and villages, monuments, woods, gorges, waterfalls, trainviaducts and were very pleased by the kindness of the people we met. The Yorkshire Dales offer a lot of beautiful and interesting places; it was difficult for us to choose and find a good balance between nature, towns, abbeys, castles and gardens. Tourist Information of Ripon was a good help to us for making choices. We loved The Dales and its tales!

    A true home from home. In a beautiful location, it is close to the centre of Ripon and one evening I spent an hour listening to bell ringing practice in the cathedral, although far enough away not to be intrusive. There are a lots of things to do in the area. Sadly I missed some of the ice cream parlours and will have to come back.

  • "The downside to this apartment was the road noise which can be heard in the bedrooms during the night."

    The double glazing clearly needs upgrading and also noise from the apartment below a young mother with two children under five years could clearly be heard shouting at them when they were crying all of which can be very distressing to listen to. On viewing the visitors book other people staying there had had the Same problem and on this basis we would not stay there again or recommend it to anyone else.
