Nicely maintained and appealing property, well equipped, comfortable and spacious (for four) in quiet yet central situation very convenient for all amenities - good shops , restaurants , pubs etc. Even an arty cinema close by. Evensong in the Cathedral well worth attending. Interesting sights within in the city and other scenic smaller towns in the locality.

Thank you for our wonderful stay at St Wilfrid's Loft in Ripon. We have enjoyed our stay thoroughly and were extremely comfortable there. What a lovely place to stay and what luxury. It was nice to know every day after visiting various places such as Castle Howard, York, The Dales and Aysgarth Falls that we could come back to that lovely warm apartment in Ripon.
