“A beautiful B & B that we would recommend highly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2011

We had only one night at Lavender House and would happily return . The hosts were friendly and attentive, the breakfast was locally sourced and delcious (including home made bread) and cooked to order. Bill and Barbara also gave good advice on eating places in Ripon .
The bedroom was beautiful, large and airy, tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. And the bed was enormous ! and very comfortable. The bathroom was also first class, with lots of nice smellies to use and lovely thick white towels.
This was a great place to stay.

Firstly I would like to thank Bill and Barbara for making our weekend a memorable experience. We immeditaly felt very welcomed by Barbara and Bill who are extremely friendly people.

The house is beautifully decorated and packed with original Victorian features.
Our room was out of this world. I've never been in such a massive bed!!

The breakfast was prepared from fresh local produce & even the toast was prepared from home made bread by Bill. When I told him that I didn't eat brown bread the next morning there was fresh white bread waiting for me at the breakfast table.
Each day there was freshly made cakes made by Barbara in your room. I tried the Almond fruit cake which was devine.

well situated only 10 min walk into Ripon.

Thank you Bill and Barbara for such an enjoyable weekend. We will be recommending you to friends and family. We will hopefully be back to stay with you in the future.

We booked this B&B on reading previous reviews.
Not disapointed at all. Cleanliness second to none. Bedroom & bathroom excellent, no expense spared. This isn't your usual en-suite! ALL fixtures & fittings top quality, topped off with the best bed ever. Breakfast cooked to order with fresh baked bread the smell which we woke up to mmmmm!! Bill & Barbara are excellent hosts & we left feeling that we'd made new friends. They have an excellent place here which we felt was like HOME FROM HOME. The best B&B by far that we've ever stayed in. We will return & hopefully this year

Room Tip: On a quiet residential street, 10 mins from centre

We stayed for only one night but it was a wonderful stay, The house is beautifully decorated and packed with original Victorian features and oodles of charm. The owners are extremely friendly and obliging with good knowledge of the area. The rooms are beautifully decorated and because there are only two rooms it makes the stay more homely rather than hotely! Bed was soooo comfortable and huge! Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Walk into town was only 10 minutes. I would definitely recommond this fabulous B&B to anyone.

Absolutely first class B&B accommodation, well situated only 10 min walk into Ripon town centre from a relatively quiet area. The rooms were both beautiful and extremely comfortable. The breakfast was prepared from fresh local produce & even the toast was prepared from home made bread by Bill - our host.
Not the cheapest around but sometimes paying a premium is worth it & this is such an eastablishment - truly worth every penny. Bill & Barbara will make you welcome from the moment you step into their house - very highly recommended.

If you are looking at staying in the Ripon area, please call and speak to Bill or Barbara to book your accommodation. It was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Friendly welcome, a stunning room, home made coconut cake (delicious!) and the attention to detail and presentation with breakfast.... Bill even helped us out with lifts to the wedding we attended. You cannot get better service than that! Enjoy the experience, we certainly did.

Just got back from a one night stay but would have loved it to have been longer! Ripon great but Lavender House is magnificent- huge beautiful room with enormous bed, gorgeous breakfast, and the ideal hosts - friendly, welcoming, but leave you to get on with your
holiday. Can't wait for an excuse to go back!
