A mixed bag
We fully agree with other reviews regarding the location and cleanliness of the property, it was spot on! The owners clearly take great pride in their property and many little extras are provided. In that sense it was a real home from home. If you wish to use the twin beds however, it would be advisable to stipulate this on booking. The website pictures give the impression that both beds are made up, but we ended up using 2 rooms. Another reviewer has mentioned internal noise and our first night was horrendous. We were woken at 2am by doors banging, loud voices and even louder music. This lasted until 3.30am. The music then stopped but the occupants continued to shout and bang doors loudly until 5am. It appears the occupants were then away for the remainder of the week as all was quiet. We fully understand that the owners have no responsibility for this, but feel we should mention it for other visitors to the apartment.
A cosy little home away from home
We had a wonderful two week stay in the apartment. It is beautifully located between the river Skell and Ripon Canal and it is only a five to eight minute walk into town. The flat is ideal for families as there are loads of things to do like feeding the ducks (duck food is sold by Richard if you stand in front of the entrance door and turn slightly right) and playing at (and in) the river. Directly in front of the house is a perfect little farm shop called "The Forge" where you can buy yummy sandwiches, cakes, milk, eggs, etc. You should see Ripon Cathdral. It is very impressive.
The flat itself is very cosy and offers wonderful views. You can hear the bells from Ripon Cathedral which is beautiful. We stayed for two weeks and even got the linen and towels changed after the first week plus we had vine, cookies and other goodies waiting for us when we arrived.
Second time we stayed here this year. Good size rooms everything you could need including a washing machine and some provisions. Close to the city centre.
We agree with other reviews about how comfortable and well equipped the apartment is, also very light and bright even in November. It is obvious that the owners, and cleaner, take great care of it and it shows. The bedrooms are surprisingly spacious and the lounge is big enough for a dining table. The foregoing are the positives but to be fair to people who use reviews to help decide on a property the following is also what we experienced.
Bearing in mind that the apartment is in a small block with three others nevertheless we did not expect the level of sound intrusion from especially the apartment below. This family were going about their lives but it isn't something we wanted to be able to so easily hear when on a holiday. Having said that there was never any noise during the night and our sleep was never disturbed. The other issue that we weren't expecting was the level of traffic noise into the bedrooms. The road that runs alongside the apatments is busy morning and late afternoon, in the morning the traffic starts at around 7am and did wake us. The double glazing, for some reason, did not take out much of the noise at all.
