Book Now





The cathedral city of Ripon is steeped in history and home to magnificent historical buildings and long observed traditions. There are award winning museums and a gothic cathedral that dates back to the 7th century.


With a thriving market place and a magnificent cathedral, this busy little city will earn a place in any visitor’s heart. Reaching out from the market square are small streets and snickets that are home to the eclectic and specialist shops for which Ripon is so loved. Amongst them are cafes and pubs, offering refreshment and home cooked food throughout the day.


Markenfield Hall with Tea & Cake


A Mediaeval, moated and much-loved family home – Markenfield Hall is a historic house unlike any other.


Set within stunning Yorkshire countryside south of Ripon, medieval Markenfield has remained largely untouched, and is one of a handful of moated, medieval manor houses that could still be recognised by their original owners; indeed the Hall is instantly recognisable thanks to its crenelated silhouette reflected in its encircling moat, which was patrolled by two Black Swans until 2019 when the moat acquired an Otter… Despite its bloody history, the Hall exudes a tranquil and welcoming atmosphere and, although only open generally for short periods of time, there are opportunities to visit throughout the year.


Enjoy a talk and tour followed by tead and exceedingly good homemade cakes!
