Step into a perfect country life when staying in our Ripon North Yorkshire holiday homes and cottages, where everyday hustle and bustle and history combine perfectly. Located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, discover a rich cultural heritage, exciting eateries and boutique shops based around a market square which is very much the heart and soul of this small city. Ripon market day is Thursday and Sunday, and proudly retaining its tradition the hornblower can be found ‘setting the watch’ every evening around 9 pm.

The imposing 7th-century Ripon Cathedral dominates the skyline, and the streets are lined with historic buildings housing a diverse range of stores from independent boutiques to high-street chains offering fashion and traditional gifts. A stay at Unbridled or Feathered Nest, our nearby luxury cottages, should include a trip to Studley Royal Water Gardens in Fountains Abbey on Ripon’s outskirts. Close by are more family-friendly attractions such as Newby Hall, Ripon Races, and Lightwater Valley Theme Park for an action-packed family day out.

Realitea

If you are willing to widen your pallet, Realitea is a tea room with an Indian twist. Reading the menu has you drooling before you’ve even stepped foot through the door. A short walk from Unbridled, we recommend a trip during your stay at the cottage.

The Royal Oak ripon

The Royal Oak

For an evening meal, The Royal Oak should be the place to go. With truly hearty pub classics, you couldn’t feel closer to Yorkshire. Located on Kirkgate, this restaurant is in a prime location around the corner from the market place, so you don’t need to trek too far before resting your feet.

Ripon Cathedral

A place full of events and exhibitions is Ripon Cathedral.  The Cathedral provides a sanctuary on a rainy day exploring the area around your Ripon holiday cottage, a beautiful focal point as you stroll the city’s streets and relax in one of many award-winning cafés. Doubling up as a fantastic events location, the Cathedral offers music by candlelight, silent discos and more. By day, the Cathedral holds lots of hidden treasures. One to look out for is the misericords (carvings on choir seats) inspired by the characters from Alice in Wonderland.

Fountains Abbey

The perfect Yorkshire day out is not far at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden, a stunning World Heritage Site run by the National Trust and one of the largest and best-preserved monastery ruins in England. Whether you’re looking to soak up the history and atmosphere or to explore the miles of award-winning scenic gardens and tranquil moon ponds or discover deer in the deer park, Fountains Abbey will always have a special place in your memory. For guests staying in our Ripon holiday cottages nearby, this really is a top place to visit.
