Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
This charming Yorkshire cottage offers a delightful break in the fabulously quaint city of Ripon. Sleeping up to four guests, Kirkgate Cottage is nestled away on a quiet lane, meaning you and your loved ones can relax and unwind in peace. The cottage is ideal for couples on a romantic break, small family escapes and small groups of friends looking to explore Ripon and the wider North Yorkshire countryside.
The cottage has a shaker-style kitchen that has been hand-painted. With its modern amenities and rustic, cottage style, it is the perfect place to prepare a delicious meal whilst enjoying a nice drink. Once dinner’s prepared, enjoy it around the bistro table in the dining area or take your meal alfresco in the pretty courtyard garden.
The living room is a nice place to socialise with its beautiful oak flooring and super-comfy seating. Settle in with a bottle of wine and spend long evenings catching up or get comfy on the sofa and enjoy a movie night. This is also a delightful spot to lose yourself in a good book or challenge your loved ones to one of the board games provided.
When bedtime beckons, head up the wonky staircase to the two bedrooms and bathroom. The first bedroom is situated at the rear of the cottage and provides some delightful views out over the historic cathedral and courtyard garden. This room has a big, comfy double bed and a blackout blind to guarantee you a peaceful night’s sleep. The second bedroom at the front of the property has a small double bed, blackout blinds and offers views over the court house gardens. This room is large enough for two adults but is also perfect for two kids, should you be travelling with the little ones in tow.
The family bathroom is pretty and has been nicely styled, featuring a luxurious rainfall shower and fabulous locally made toiletries.
After you've risen, take your morning coffee out into the courtyard garden where you can relax in the peace of the trees, birds and the chimes of the cathedral.
When it comes to spending your days at Kirkgate Cottage, there’s plenty to see and do in the area. Head out and explore the marvellous city of Ripon in North Yorkshire. This quaint cathedral city is steeped in history and home to magnificent historical buildings and long-observed traditions. Be sure to visit the cathedral before exploring the many independent shops, pubs, restaurants, antiques and art galleries in the city.
Lovers of the great outdoors can also leave Ripon and explore the wider Yorkshire countryside, including the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North York Moors National Park, both of which are a short drive away.

A wonderful 4 days in Ripon and exploring the wonderful countryside! The cottage is stylish and comfortable with all the facilities you need. The surprising September sun allowed early evening drinks in the secluded courtyard. What wasn't to like with all the choice of restaurants/cafes on the doorstep. Thanks for the welcome pack of bread, butter, milk and other goodies-very useful and convenient if one arrives late. All in all a wonderful time was had! Thanks Nick and Nicola
