Guests will find a warm welcome in College Penthouse, a beautifully appointed and newly developed apartment in a conservation area close to the centre of Ripon.

The city of Ripon, with its famous cathedral and open air market, is full of character. It is set in some of the most beautiful countryside in North Yorkshire.

This apartment is convenient to a number of popular destinations. The International Conference Centre in Harrogate is a pleasant 20 minute drive.

There is a wealth of attractions in the area to suit a variety of interests and age groups.

It is our aim to make your stay in this area one you will never forget. We feel it is important to pay attention to detail and offer a high standard of accommodation which we hope will be like ‘a home away from home’

NB To get an idea of the apartment location- to take a look on the "street view" in

(if you search for “Steven Way, Ripon” you will be able to see the grounds at the front of the apartment – in “street view” if you traverse to the car park at the top of Steven Way and put the “N” in the 3 o clock position you will see (top right) the 7 dormer windows of the third floor College Penthouse apartment – traversing down Steven way from there you will get a nice view of the wooded landscaping on the left hand side of the lane and you will see the children’s play area further down on the right – if you traverse to half way along “Thirlmere Drive” with the “N” in the 9 o clock position you will get a nice view of the grounds which form part of the walk into Ripon city centre.

Hopefully, this information will give you some impression of what we think is a great location for the College Penthouse apartment in Ripon.

"fabulous, comfortable, spotless flat in great location for families"

Our family stayed for a week in April (3 adults, 1 five year old) and could not fault the accomodation. Clean, well appointed and beautifully decorated throughout. The flat is set in the old college grounds so ther is lots of space for children to run around. There is also a small play park which my grandson loved.
The flat is in walking distance of Ripon which has lots of shops, restaurants, pubs etc. Harrogate and Knaresborough are a short drive away and York and Leeds less than hour. We come from the area but it was lovely to revisit all our old haunts then come back to the comfort and cosiness of the flat.
Would definately recommend this property and hope to stay again
