“Birthday Long Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2012

We recently spent a long weekend at Rudding Gates celebrating my wifes birthday. On arrival we were greeted and shown around the apartment, the quality of this apartment is not done justice by photographs. The quality of fixtures and fittings utensils etc are exceptional, and the apartment extremly spacious, with two large bedrooms and a spacious longue area. We spent three nights in a wonderful part of North Yorkshire, spoilt for choice for things to do, our only regret is the visit was not longer. We will certainly be return visitors.

We had a weekend stay and the place is first class. High quality fittings and plenty of room for everyone. The welcome pack and other bits and pieces in the house are a nice touch and I would highly recommend the property to anyone.

The pre booking part is also very efficient providing keys in advance and all very efficient.

Only 5 minutes out of Harrogate so easy to get about and a lot quieter to stay in.

Spacious and luxurious, peaceful and tasteful, Rudding Gates effortlessly caters for all needs. The care, thought and attention to detail on so many levels cannot be surpassed. We loved the comfort, the crisp white bed linen, the piles of warm, fluffy towels, the amazing touches of technology, the secluded little patio for breakfasting, the superbly well appointed kitchen and bathrooms, the welcome we received - if I go on this would become a lengthy essay. Suffice to say that without being ostentatious (in fact the luxury is understated) Rudding Gates well deserves the 5-star and Gold Awards it has already received.

We emerged from our stay here totally refreshed and relaxed, delighted to have found such a super pied-a-terre in our favourite county. Until you've tried Rudding Gates, you won't know what excellence is.

Room Tip: There's no need to worry about choice at Rudding Gates. It is hard to convey the standard of exc...

First visited Rudding Gates in March 2011 and we were blown away by the sheer luxury of the accommodation. Beautifully furnished and equipped with everything anyone could possibly need. The lodge was warm and comfortable, it would be easy to just curl up and relax and not sample any of the easily accessible sights and attractions of the area. We sampled the bus into Harrogate from almost outside the door and found this a great alternative to taking the car. In December 2011 we made our second visit and were not disappointed, everything was just as wonderful as we remembered. The accommodation is fabulous and the attention of the staff from booking through to leaving was first class. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Beautiful apartment with every detail thought out.Like staying in a 5 star hotel with more space.Kitchen very fully equipped.Whole place SPOTLESSLY clean.I'm sure I will stay again.Very well situated to reach Harrogate, Leeds or York but peaceful setting.We loved feeling like the lord of the manor as the gates magically open for you!!Owner next door, checking everything was fine-which it was.My only small quibble was that the mattresses were a little soft for my personal preference.

Wow! What a great find Rudding Gates was. Lisa and the team not only made our stay a relaxing one, but really enjoyable. Going out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed for a lovely breakaway, we managed to enjoy both Harrogate and York stress free. Set at the top of the little village of Follifoot The Gates are quite imposing, but within are set two lovely apartments each ready to cater for two couples or a family. Beautifully decorated, amazingly clean (looks brand new) and with every mod-con I can imagine, there is no place I would rather recommend as a home away from home.

Thank you Rudding Gates!

Room Tip: Both amazing!
