  • "A delightful cottage, peaceful yet very central to all the local amenities."

    Well appointed with thoughtful touches and cosy. A property I would definitely consider returning to. Slight downside is the non-availability of immediate parking but I always found spaces in Church Lane.

  • "This Cottage feels like home from the very first moment."

    It has all the little touches of a home rather than a commercial enterprise. For instance there is adequate lighting, the kitchen is stocked with all the utensils you would expect at home and the decor is personal and individual. The situation is ideal, secluded and quiet, yet in the very middle of town and unexpectedly there is a lovely little garden to sit out in. I have had one of the best Sykes holidays in all my years of booking Cottages and very much hope to return.

  • "Lovely, quirky pieds a terre in a quiet location very close to the town centre and an easy walk from the bus station."

    The cottage had absolutely everything one could need. The kitchen had such a good array of utensils that if I'd been so inclined, I could have cooked a four-course meal! The bed was very comfortable -so important after busy days enjoying oneself. The sweet little garden space was a boon. Handwritten notes meant I felt a real connection to Anna and Naomi who respectively own and run the cottage. This is the only place I've ever stayed with a piano - though, fortunately for the neighbours, I can't play.

  • "Lovely location."

    Hidden away behind the shops in town. Loads eateries on the doorstep. Parking was no problem even though no parking at property. Free parking on the town square from 18;00 until 08:00. We will go back there.

  • "This was a lovely cottage which had everything you could possibly need."

    Great location. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Bijoux property surprisingly quiet."

    South facing sitting area. A few minutes walk from centre with numerous restaurants/pubs to choose from. Parking was a concern but should not deter. Free/24 Hr Blossomgate (despite so few spaces and poor reviews) provided space when we needed, with some additional chances in adjoining roads. In extremis cathedral car park allows leave and return so an all day ticket covers flexibly. Small but good Thursday market. Thoroughly recommend.

The property

Set in the heart of Ripon, just outside of the Yorkshire Dales National Park is this charming, single-storey, mid-terrace cottage, 3 Westgate Mews.

Perfect as a romantic retreat or a base for a solo traveller, this enchanting cottage offers a garden with seating and a quaint interior, while being a stone's throw away from the local amenities.

Arriving at the cottage, make your way through the garden and into the home where you will come across the snug/dining area, complete with a piano and a selection of books, providing you with an alternative evening of entertainment.

From here, the kitchen has all you need to cook hearty meals to fuel your days out, as well as a sitting area with a TV, for when it is time to unwind.

Moving through the cottage, the double bedroom invites you to rest your head before another adventurous day, while the bathroom is there for freshening up after a day of walking, or before you pop out to one of the local restaurants.

Outside, be sure to take advantage of the garden space, home to a bistro set so you can dine alfresco in the warmer months.

When you are ready to explore, why not make your way down to the Workhouse Museum, set in a restored Victorian workhouse, or if you want to make the most of the weather, enjoy a picnic in the nearby Ripon Spa Gardens.

A scenic car journey will take you to Harrogate, beautiful town with plenty of things to do in the area, including visiting the Valley Gardens, Mother Shipton's Cave, and Killinghall Moor Country Park; you can also enjoy a day of pampering at one of the town's many spas, such as the Turkish Baths Harrogate.

Further afield, you can head into the city of York for a day of shopping or make your way towards the coast for a day at the popular resorts of Whitby and Scarborough.

Whatever your style of adventure, choose 3 Westgate Mews as your base.
