Lavender House
Ranked #9 of 19 Ripon B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 July 2014

There's little point in repeating the excellent detail of the many 5 star reviews of the excellent Lavender House. Suffice it to say, we had the same experience and unreservedly endorse those comments.

Room Tip: There are two rooms and both are excellent.

This guest house surpasses our high expectations and offers great value for money as you stay in comfort and style. The rooms are wonderful and the bathroom is a delight in itself! Barbara and Bill are most welcoming and are eager to please you. If you want to stay in this marvellous and ancient city in North Yorkshire then look no further

Stayed here whilst attending a wedding in Ripon. A beautiful property. Room was spacious, light and decorated beautifully and the bathroom huge and luxurious. Breakfast was lovely and the owners are very welcoming. Definitely recommend.

My partner and I cycled the Way of the Roses cycle route and booked to stay in Lavender House for 1 night. We arrived exhausted from a whole day of cycling and were greeted by two lovely people, Bill and Barbara. They made us both feel so very welcome. The house was beautifully and tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and homely too. We stayed in Jervaulx. There was homemade cake waiting for us in the room when we arrived and the comfiest bed I've ever slept in. The room was fabulous, as was our bathroom, which also contained those added little luxuries of Molton Brown hand wash and hand lotion. We asked if they could recommend anywhere nice to eat, and they couldn't have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. They were the perfect hosts, incredibly welcoming without being obtrusive. Breakfast was first class too, freshly made to order, and included wonderful home-made bread. Our experience of Lavender House and Ripon too was fabulous, and we plan to return to both very soon. Thank you Bill and Barbara.

We have just spent the most amazing weekend at Lavender House and the owners Barbara & Bill are two of the most wonderful people you could ever wish to meet. The B&B is immaculate throughout and decorated to a very high standard. They have thought of everything to make your stay there excellent, including finding home made cake & cookies left in your room on returning there each day. We stayed in the Fountains room which words and photos can't do it justice as it is massive and so so beautiful. The bathroom is next door to the bedroom on the landing which is no problem at all and the slipper bath and the walk in shower are just DIVINE! The towels are thick and fluffy and the dressing gowns are a lovely touch as were the beautiful toiletries, we even had a beautiful fresh flower arrangement in our room. There is more than enough storage for clothes and cases etc in the room and all the bedroom furniture is beautiful as is the MASSIVE bed which is like sleeping on a giant cloud and the room is so quiet too so a good nights sleep is guaranteed which then leads us to tell you about the breakfast! O boy, it is all freshly cooked to perfection by Bill and what a FANTASTIC breakfast you get (thank you for flipping my egg Bill ;-) ) All the food is of high quality and locally sourced. Bill even bakes his own bread which was to die for and Barbara had made the seville marmalade which was delicious too. We really didn't want to leave and have voted the Lavender House as the BEST B&B that we have ever had the pleasure to stay in and I know that we will be staying there again when ever we are up in Ripon. So all in all if you are looking for some where to stay in the Ripon area do not hesitate to stay here it is PERFECTION personified. Thank you very much Bill & Barbara for all the hard work you two put into your stunning house love Jules & Stuart xx

This was not the first time I have stayed at Lavender House B&B and it definitely won't be the last. Their hospitality when we arrived after a very long flight from Australia was second to none! We stayed in Fountains, and just like Fountains Abbey itself, it was a wonder of the World! The bed was like sleeping on a cloud held afloat by marshmallows, the bathroom made you feel like a well-to-do character off Downtown Abbey and your nose is lead down the stairs for breakfast by a cartoon like smell of freshly baked bread. The luxurious touches of antique lace and molton and brown products don't go unnoticed. Lavender House B&B is heaven on Earth! Already counting down the days until my next visit.

Room Tip: Fountains is extremely spacious and the bathroom is to die for!

My girlfriend organised a surprise weekend away taking in a number of sights in North Yorkshire. The highlight of the weekend was her excellent choice of B&B.
Bill and Barbara were perfect hosts, incredibly welcoming to their beautiful home without being obtrusive. We were shown to a stunning room, tastefully decorated and extremely well appointed. The bed was one of the best we had slept in!
Next door we had our own enormous bathroom with a fantastic bath centre stage, a powerful walk in shower and plenty of thoughtful toiletries.
In the morning we sat down to what i thought was easily the best breakfast i have ever had in a B&B. Fruit was provided, dressed with mint and accompanied by silky yoghurt. Fresh orange juice, coffee and tea, fresh toast (we could smell it baking in the morning!) and homemade jam all preceded a wonderful full english breakfast or smoked salmon and perfectly poached egg. The tomatoes we fresh from their allotment and incredibly fresh and stole the show!
Bill and Barbara clearly take great pride in their wonderful gardens, their tastefully decorated home and their homegrown food.
This isnt one of those places you have to weigh up the pro's and cons, there is no doubt you will love staying here. Book it now whilst you can, you wont regret it.
