Interaction with guests
Feel very fortunate to live in Ripon and I want to ensure guests make the most of their visit. I work from home so guests will have a warm welcome. Also respectful of those who just seek peace and quiet! Happy to arrange and accompany guests on walking trips by prior arrangement.
Ripon has 3 beautiful rivers, a World Heritage site within walking distance from our home and a Cathedral dating back to the 7th Century. Although technically a city it has the feel of a friendly town with a traditional market square. For cyclists and walkers it is Heaven! Ripon is the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales.
An excellent bus system operates from Harrogate (and Leeds) to Ripon via Ripley where you can visit the castle. During the summer months there are buses into the Dales and shuttle buses to Fountains Abbey. York is a 45 minute drive away, or catch a frequent train from Harrogate station. There's plenty of parking outside my home.
Other things to note
The house is extremely easy to find whether you're coming from North, South, East or West! Our address is Kangel Corner, Kangel Close/Dallamires Lane, Ripon HG4 1DE. Satnav may send you into Kangel Close but the front door is on Dallamires Lane! Leave Dallamires Lane roundabout on the A61 (Ripon by-pass) heading in the opposite direction to ATS Tyres. You'll see a bungalow on your right and our stone built house next door (look for the Sewing Oates sign in the garden). If you go past conifer hedging you've gone too far!
It's obvious, isn't it? We respect each other and smile! Please don't bring your pets or your cigarettes!

I am a cheerful lover of the outdoors, especially cycling and gardening. As a self employed dressmaker I am lucky to work from home but I do try to take time out to explore and always find inspiration wherever I visit, especially if food and music are involved. I am a tidy and respectful host and guest. I've lived in Europe, the Far East and Middle East and can't ever imagine losing the travel bug or the desire to meet new and interesting people. I genuinely enjoy hosting guests and helping them to get the best out of this lovely area.
