The Vicarage BB

Natalie, Frankfurt – ASH & YEW

Our group stayed in ASH and YEW at this wonderful little B&B. The interior design was such a surprise – in a word: lush. Not only was the in-room breakfast a pleasant variation on a theme, but the amenities (WiFI, your choice of streaming platforms incl. Amazon Prime, Netflix and YouTube) really made you feel “at home”.

Coupled with the beautiful countryside surrounding this tranquil area made the whole trip a very pleasant one. The hosts were attentive but not intrusive and provided a good variety of breakfast options (such as toast/crumpets, selection of teas, etc).

We will definitely go there again.

Grev, Sussex – ASH

Excellent, beautifully appointed room. Very friendly hostess.

I was the high bidder on an auction for three nights staying with Eileen and Robin. How lucky was I! The room (Ash) is one of three that have been converted from an outbuilding. The location being a very quiet village which is a short drive from Knaresborough and Harrogate. It is beautifully appointed with such tasteful decorations and thoughtful touches – I am thinking notably about the soft light that turns on when you enter the bathroom, which at night, emits enough light to use the toilet without having to turn on the main light. There is a very fast usb charging port, smart tv, kettle, Nespresso coffee maker, fridge etc. The fridge is filled with items ready for a continental breakfast every morning. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I would heartily recommend. A gem.

Meet your Hosts

We’re not the types to splash our faces around the internet much, but thought it rude not to introduce ourselves. So here we are, Eileen and Robin, the duo behind The Vicarage B&B.

Our travels around the world have taken us to dozens of countries, including Germany, France, South Africa, Cyprus Hong Kong and the United States – some of which we’ve called home. While living abroad was incredibly rewarding, we were enticed back to North Yorkshire in 2016 after decades away from the area.

The house we chose to make our home dates back to 1679 and used to be the vicar’s residence. We did a radical redesign on the house and brought it into the 21st century. The stables next door were looking a little dilapidated when we arrived, but we immediately spotted the potential. After a significant renovation, we converted the building into three purpose-built guest rooms and The Vicarage B&B was born. Of course, that’s only a fraction of the story.

Thankfully our skillsets also lend themselves nicely to running a boutique bed and breakfast. Eileen has a lifelong passion for sumptuous fabrics, colour and clever use of space, so it’s no surprise that she meticulously designed every inch of our stylish rooms. Robin, on the other hand, is a keen food and wine lover, and handles the preparation of our continental breakfasts.

We also love talking to people, which in our opinion is one of the greatest joys of managing boutique accommodation. We’ll happily chat to anyone, but much prefer listening to our guests. We can do both in German, French and Yorkshire!

Nevertheless, we know when to keep our distance too. If you’re the type who would rather enjoy the peace of the countryside on your travels, we’re all for that. Being on hand when you need us and being invisible when you don’t is our signature style (checkout our #BathrobeBreakfast to see what we mean).

We live a stone’s throw from the guest rooms, so you can give us a shout if you need anything (perhaps not literally; mind the serenity) and we can usually be there in a jiffy. We give you our mobile number on arrival, so you can simply send us a text if you prefer.

Now you know a bit about us, take a look at our beautiful rooms. Pick your favourite then securely book direct through our website to get the best promotions and up-to-date information in the run up to your stay.

We look forward to seeing you at The Vicarage soon!

Yew is the neighbouring room to ASH. It is just a little smaller, but doesn’t feel like it with its high ceiling. A good choice for spotting wildlife.


Oak is the room closest to the main house with windows to the east and south. It has its own courtyard and barbecue.


Ash is in the middle of the mews building and is the largest of the rooms with a little more floor space and a high ceiling.

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