Stylish bed and breakfast in Harrogate. Welcome.

Welcome to The Vicarage B&B. Situated just north of Harrogate, North Yorkshire, our boutique bed and breakfast is surrounded by some of the most photographed landscape in Britain. Nearby you’ll find more than 200 restaurants and plenty of things to see – from pretty towns to grand houses and breathtaking scenery.

But we’re also tucked away in a quiet part of the world (the little village of Nidd to be precise), where you can gaze across the paddock as the sun rises and sets, and have nothing to disturb you but the chime of the church bells and the unmistakable sounds of partridge and pheasant that that call our place their home. You might not have heard of Nidd before, but you’ll be surprised at the well-known names who know about this hidden gem.

You won’t be disturbed by us or other guests either, as each of our guest rooms has a private entrance and parking space. Our B&B is adults only and our popular #BathrobeBreakfast can be enjoyed in the comfort of your stylish abode at any time you please. That said, we’re always on hand if you need us and will go out of our way to make your stay memorable.

So, who is ‘us’, you ask? Visit our ‘About’ page to find out, or if you’re sold already, head straight to our secure online booking page.


Our three ensuite guest rooms are in a separate building to The Vicarage itself. OAK, ASH and YEW each have their own entrance and parking outside each room in the courtyard. It is all ground floor and just one step up from the door. You are free to come and go as you please. If you’ve stayed with us before you can check yourself in using the keysafe.


Breakfast is our trademark, yet it’s not a full English.  We lived on the continent for years, so we know a proper continental breakfast spread when we see one. We designed a special breakfast pantry in each room, so you serve yourself precisely when you want. Midnight snacks, breakfast in bed, brunch. The choice is entirely yours. Bathrobe breakfast anyone?


We are your hosts Eileen and Robin.

We decided on North Yorkshire in 2016 after decades away from the area.  Between us we have years of experience in Germany, South Africa, Hong Kong and the United States – sometimes calling them home, sometimes visiting. We can chat to anyone, but much prefer listening to our guests. We can do both in German, French and Yorkshire!

Eileen has a lifelong passion for sumptuous fabric, colour and clever use of space, so it’s no surprise that she designed every inch of the B&B rooms.  Robin’s your man for all things food-related.  He produces all the different breakfasts and adores dreaming up new options.

On arrival at this hidden gem, we were pleasantly welcomed by Eileen and Robin who were very attentive to our needs. The room we stayed in was immaculate in every way with attention to detail throughout. Our stay was super comfortable and the self-service breakfast was excellent in every way. It’s a shame we didn’t have more time to enjoy this superb setting and cannot thank the hosts enough for their hospitality. I highly recommend this high-quality accommodation and will certainly be returning to soak up some more of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
A superb setting and a great location. 1st class. Thank you. x

I have found a real gem & somewhere that I know I will return to when I need to relax & recharge.
What did I like? Everything! Locations was idyllic, and perfect for me as my family were staying at Nidd Hall. Very friendly welcome, room was beautifully done, & to a high quality. I loved that it was self contained & the breakfast pantry was in the room, with a great choice of quality produce. Lovely little table & chairs in the room. Great attention to detail, e.g a dimmed light underneath sink came on when entering if dark. There was a torch in the room which came in very handy! The bed was so comfy & Eileen so accommodating, offering table & chairs to sit outside for breakfast in morning if I wanted.

The Vicarage Harrogate is a B&B with a difference in the small village of Nidd, just north of Harrogate.
