Walker, cyclist & dog friendly – the 11 bespoke bedrooms will provide the perfect home away from home in a unique, historic setting.
Enjoy Yorkshire hospitality at its best in this award-winning hotel.
With its secret gardens to the rear and truly special location, The Old Deanery Hotel is also fast becoming one of the most popular wedding & event venues in North Yorkshire.
How about a little history? Ripon Minster, as it was known until it became a cathedral in 1836, lost most of its revenues in the 1530/40s at the Reformation and was left with only poorly educated vicars to look after the extensive parish of Ripon. But in 1604 the Minster was granted a new charter by King James I, adding a dean and six canons, one of whom was to reside in Ripon, so it was necessary for a suitable residence to be provided. The Old Deanery was the home of the Dean of Ripon until, it appears, at the end of World War II. There are several stories of secret passages from the magnificent Cathedral to The Old Deanery and nearby Fountains Abbey, however none have been verified (or found!).
The lovely team of staff are led by Director & General Manager, Chris Brown, who looks forward to welcoming you to The Old Deanery Hotel soon.
