Had our last night of a cycling holiday here and despite some lovely stays en-route, really did feel we'd saved the best til last. The house is absolutely charming. It's obviously been a real labour of love for Bill and Barbara over the years and they have managed to create a luxurious, high quality B&B, whilst not losing the charm... More

We were greeted with a very warm welcome and could have accepted the offered cake which looked very tasty (sadly, we are both trying to watch our calorie intake). The super-king sized bed was very comfortable and the room was spotless (not all B&B's are); our bathroom was beautiful, Victorian in style with a nice bath. The choices for breakfast... More

You are made to feel very welcome indeed at this wonderful Victorian property. The refinement of the room and facilities is high, relaxed and luxurious. A 5 star night was followed by a 5 star breakfast. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this excellent B&B and stay there again.

If you intend visiting the Ripon area, I urge you to stay at Lavender house, it's superb. If ever two people have found their true vocation in life, it is the owners Bill and Barbara, they are delightful hosts, so helpful and welcoming, after a few minutes conversation, you feel that you've known them all of your life.

We were guests at a wedding at Fountains Abbey so required to stay in Ripon and discovered a gem of a B & B, as a family we have stayed in some luxurious hotels in the world but we were so delighted to stay at the Lavender House for our overnight stay, both Bill & Barbara made us all feel... More

The other reviews say exactly what we want to say. The B&B was just out of this world. The decor was beautiful, the location was perfect and Bill and Barbara were fantastic! We arrived Saturday morning ready for the races, greeted by Bill who showed us to our gorgeous bedroom. My parents had one room and me and my other... More

My husband, daughter and I stayed in this thoroughly delightful B&B for two luxurious nights in June 2014, part way through a six month European camping holiday. I have just consulted my diary and found this entry ... " I am penning this from the depths of probably the most beautifully comfortable bed I have ever experienced." We cannot recommend... More

I think most previous reviews have said everything I would like to, but just to reiterate this b&b is an absolute gem. Bill & Barbara are lovely and share their wonderful home with both warmth & complete professionalism. Their standards are impeccable & the decor us outstanding, the pictures do not do it justice. Will definitely return.

This is the place to stay! A small gem. Luxurious in every way. Beautiful rooms and bathrooms, with high quality soft furnishings to rival the Ritz. Vary warm welcome and hospitality. Superb breakfast to send us on our way. Paul and Marian

This is a delightful place to stay. Both of the rooms are tastefully furnished and very comfortable. Our bathroom was fabulous and included my favourite Molton Brown hand wash. The whole house is immaculate. Breakfast was delicious; everything was so fresh. The owners were lovely and made us feel very welcome. We would definitely stay again and have no hesitation... More
