A little gem!

A beautiful cosy period cottage with all the modern touches you need, a real home from home. Thank you for the lovely cake, wine, beers, milk etc, we didn't take our dog but there was collars, leads, ball for throwing and bowl's if you'd forgotten them, everything you need. We had a lovely few days in the picture's village, Pately Bridge, only a few minutes walk away with it's lovely oldie worldie high street and fabulous foodie shops. Pork pies from the bottom butchers were great, as were the cakes and bread from the Bake House and lovely real home cooked food in the local pub's (beware the portion sizes! make sure your hungry). Lovely friendly people and a great base to explore from, taking in Harrogate and York, it was a shame we couldn't have stayed longer. Thank you Denise and Nigel for eveything

The apartment was very comfortably laid out and thoughtfully furnished, including some basic grocery items. Terrific comfortable beds and nicely appointed kitchen and bath. Cozy lounge with blankets and seating for relaxing after a long day. Excellent location literally 2 minutes' walk from Ripon Cathedral and the town square (with a Sainsbury's and shops). Don't miss meeting and hearing the Ripon Hornblower every night at 9 pm in the square! 5-10 minute drive to Fountains Abbey. Lovely green parks are a block away. Karen was a pleasure to deal with and sent all the necessary information to us before we arrived. Would highly recommend a stay here!

Good local bus service and amenities on the door step. Didn't use the car once during our stay. Apartment surprisingly warm, given its age. Has all necessary equipment for a self catering break. Beds comfortable, linen and apartment spotlessly clean. Fantastic communication from Andrew, who immediately relsoved one little 'issue' we encountered whilst there. A real gem of a place, with the benefit of a super cleaner. Thank you.
