My wife and I and our son stayed here as the second main stop cycling the Way of the Roses from Morecambe to Bridlington. My wife was acting in a back up capacity carrying our gear from place to place. The guesthouse is in an excellent location near the centre of Ripon with plenty of restaurants near by. Car parking...

My husband and I only stayed for the 1 night whilst attending a function in Ripon, but Box Tree Cottages offered everything we needed. The cottages are in a perfect central location to everything Ripon has to offer. The beautifully decorated and maintained house has so much character and charm, and the owners were lovely too. Highly recommended!!!

We only stayed for one night but Sue and Barry made us very welcome and were very helpful in every respect. The location is very good as It's an easy short walk into Ripon. It's a Grade II listed building and the cottages and the garden have a lovely character and feel to them. The bed was superbly comfortable and... More

Charming owners with a charming house in easy walking distance of the centre of Ripon. Really enjoyed the breakfast- especially the sausages which were wonderful. We were only there one night but made it a holiday and ate supper at the excellent Lockwoods and followed it with a film at the Curzon!

Just what you would hope from a B&B experience: homely, welcoming, warm, everything thoughtfully set up, with useful little system to keep things running smoothly. The rooms are charmingly done, each with character and fully equipped with everything you'd need. You can tell the hosts haven't settled for less but had in mind for guests to enjoy all manner of...
