A 17th century building with a staircase to match. The owners have sensibly retained the historic look of the interior of the old deanery. Room 3 has a splendid view over the north face of Ripon Cathedral. Bedroom and bathroom are wonderfully spacious. The staff were extremely friendly and supplied much interesting historical information about the building.
The only slip in the service was our being told on arrival that the restaurant was fully booked for lunch and then being informed soon afterwards that there had been a cancellation and we could eat there. When we went down, we found there was only one other couple in the restaurant. The staff then forgot to put the cost of the lunch onto our bill.
The large and beautiful garden at the back is a work in progress, with new planting planned for this autumn.
