“Great B&B in an excellent position in Ripon”
Reviewed July 8, 2008

Found the Boxtree Cottages from tripadvisor and booked direct by phone. The property is very close to the centre of Ripon, a pleasant market town at the Eastern edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and just 3 miles from the World Heritage site of Foutains Abbey.
The property is the conversion of several old cottages, on a quiet street and is set in a nice garden and has excellent off-street parking. From the property it is a 5 minute walk to the Market Square.
Boxtree Cottages are run by two couples who take it in turn to be the charming, helpful hosts. We met B&B (Barbara and Brian) who looked after us very well.
The rooms are great. We had a twin (room 2) which is spacious and has an excellent ensuite bathroom. TV, tea/coffee making etc are all provided. Breakfast was full Yorkshire and great. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay.

If (when?) you stay at Boxtree cottages, be sure to see the nightly ceremony of the Ripon Wakeman in the Market Square. At 9pm prompt he blows his horn to set the watch to ensure that the citizens are safe - he has been doing this for 1122 years (i.e since 866AD)!
