  • "Thank you for allowing us to stay in your wonderful apartment - what a special holiday residence!"

    The entrance hall and floating staircase are akin to those found in stately homes - we visited Beningbrough Hall during our vacation and found ourselves favourably comparing Highfield House with such National Trust properties! The whole building is amazing and Apartment 6 is beautifully furnished and luxuriously appointed. The quality of the fixtures and fittings is second to none. There's even a tap giving instant boiling water! An excellent base from which to explore the lovely town of Ripon and all the various countryside villages in this special part of God's own country - which of course is Yorkshire!

    William. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with valuable feedback on your stay at Apt 6, I'm so happy you had a lovely time in such a fabulous building . it sounds like you had some lovely adventures whilst in the area. we would love to welcome you back anytime. kindest regards lesley Property Owner

  • "When we booked this apartment we were expecting to have a relaxing break for our silver wedding anniversary, however, we were mistaken, from the second day of our break there were builders in the communal areas pulling up carpets and installing pipes,we went out for the morning and on our return we had to climb over the pulled up carpets, and pipe work to get into our apartment."

    Due to the disruption we decided to go out for a walk, but on our return we found that there was a builder in our apartment draining the boiler. We were not told that they would need access to our apartment. On speaking to the builder he said that it was a planned job and that the owner had known about it in advance, and he had been told that we had vacated the property. He said he would be contacting the owner later. The intrusion made us feel unsafe and uncomfortable, we were not aware that anyone had keys to our apartment and to find someone there without our permission was quite a shock. I personally couldnt settle so we left the property early and came home. The owner did contact me via text message to apologise but her account was different to the builders and it still didnt make us feel any better or safer hence why we left early

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Apartment 6."

    The hosts were enormously helpful and quick to help out. The location, near Ripon was wonderful to explore- walking and driving. The house and apartment are of the highest quality, we agreed it was the most comfortable bed we had slept in for a long time. We stayed with two of our sons and could not think of anything that could have made our stay better. There are several residents who permanently reside in the house and they were friendly, welcoming and had great recommendations for local places to visit and eat. The original features of this building make this a special place to stay. We would definitely return if in the area.

    Many thanks for spending time to provide us with valuable feedback. I'm so happy that you had a lovely stay and that you enjoyed this fabulous building and surrounding areas as we do. we would love to welcome you back anytime. Kind regards Lesley Property Owner

  • "Apartment 6 is FANTASTIC."

    It’s a wonderful and perfectly appointed apartment, in a stunningly beautiful (and secure) building. The pictures will give you a good idea of how lovely this place is - it really is as great as it looks - but in addition: Great communication from the owner - clear and timely instructions. The fittings and furnishings in the apartment are very high quality. It was literally spotlessly clean. The apartment is on the first floor, accessed via two wide flights of stairs in the extremely grand entrance hall. I am pretty sure there is a lift, but DO check this with the owner if this is important to you. We didn’t use any of the cooking facilities in the apartment as we ate out, but I would be confident it’s equipped with what you might need. The parking for two vehicles is at the front of the property, and clearly marked. It’s on flat gravel. The building entrance and parking is illuminated early dusk/dark and sensor lighting thereafter - you can see your car/s from the apartment. It’s very peaceful! It’s an easy 10/15 min walk into Ripon. We felt very safe in the area, even walking back fairly late at night. Loads of nice places to eat and drink in Ripon. It was quite busy, even mid-week. A large M&S Food is a short drive away, as is a Morrisons. We’ve been using cottages and apartments for short breaks for years, and this is by far the best place we have stayed. We’d love to go back - but it’s so lovely, we suspect it will never be available again!!!

    Racheal so kind of you to write us a lovely details review. im so happy that you had a lovely time as we do when we are there. it really is a relaxing space. I hope to welcome you back anytime. regards Lesley Property Owner

  • "We had a pleasant stay in a comfortable, well positioned and nicely presented property."

    The other residents were welcoming, and we particularly enjoyed the daily visit from the local friendly pheasant! The short walk into Ripon was pleasant and convenient. The only slight downsides were the seemingly lack of instructions for the induction hob and the omission of oven gloves, in an otherwise well appointed kitchen.

    Peter, many thanks for your feedback. I’m glad you had a great time at apartment 6. I will take onboard your comments and get these rectified. With some oven gloves and instructions for the hob. Many thanks Property Owner

    The kitchen was well-equipped, and although a hairdryer would have been useful, we had everything we needed for our stay. The property's in a convenient location for lots of nearby attractions, and only a short walk from the centre. We had a lovely, relaxing time here, and would happily return/ recommend it to others.

    The location is superb, the house containing the apartment is very picturesque and the apartment itself is outstanding. We were able to find a launderette as ours was a longish stay, but adding a washer/dryer would make the perfect offer. We would highly recommend.
