The Old Post Office

Stay in a conservation property in North Yorkshire’s “best village to live in” – Yorkshire Post 2017.

The Ingilby family have lived at Ripley Castle for over 700 years and the village is full of history.

The property is the former Post Office flat (first floor in the photo) the Post Office having re-located elsewhere in the village. It is part of the Hotel de Ville built for the community by the eccentric William Amcotts Ingilby in 1854.

The flat is available for the first time in 2018 and has a newly fitted kitchen and bathroom. It also has a large lounge and a double bedroom.

The flat is situated on the first floor and is reached by a turned staircase. It has a large, walled garden ideal for BBQs or for pets to play safely.

The property has plenty of parking and is situated in the centre of the village close to the Boar’s Head which is open for food lunchtimes and evenings. Ripley also has a shop, art gallery, “world famous” ice cream, tea-room, church and castle.

There are many attractive walks starting from the village and for those interested in cycling the Greenway cycle path leads to Harrogate and then on to Knaresborough.

The village hall and Star Club are also located within the Hotel de Ville and there is free membership for holidaymakers to play snooker, badminton etc. The club’s licensed bar is open Monday to Friday from 7.30 but this does not cause any disturbance to the flat which is on the other side of the building.

The flat is ideal for those relying on public transport as the Harrogate – Ripon bus passes through the village every 15 minutes.
