Our signature continental breakfast

We’ve stayed in many a bed and breakfast in our day, and while we’ve always loved the personal touch of boutique accommodation, we weren’t always so fond of fronting up to the communal dining table at a set time or submitting our egg and toast orders the night before.

We thought there has to be a better way. And you know what, there is.

It’s called the #BathrobeBreakfast.

This is a delightful breakfast spread that will land in your room pantry just before you arrive or while you’re out. You can help yourself whenever you please … in your plush white bathrobe if you so wish. A selection of tasty goodies in your room is really handy if you have to leave bright and early or if you’re partial to a late night snack. You can eat while gazing out at the beautiful church and you don’t have to make small talk with anyone. Bliss. Even more blissful if you are staying in OAK where you have your own exclusive outdoor area, ideal for al fresco breakfast.

Now for the important part: the food. We don’t do a traditional fry up, instead it’s a proper continental breakfast with a Yorkshire twist. Expect Spanish, German or Italian charcuterie and cheese, along with crumpets, Weetabix, juice and fresh fruit. We won’t judge if you want to nibble your cheese the night before with some vino.

We’ve also perfected our overnight oats, or Bircher Müsli to give it its proper name. The wonderfully creamy flavour develops while you sleep and can be topped with a rich berry compôte and cinnamon yoghurt.

In your room you’ll have a toaster and an easy-to-use electric egg boiler so you can prep everything exactly as you like it. Each room also has its own Nespresso machine, coffee pods and milk. Of course there’s proper Yorkshire Tea too. That’s a given. (Plus other varieties if you’d prefer.)

Our breakfasts are delightfully satisfying and don’t compromise on quality – we only serve food that we happily eat in our own home (and we’re rather fussy).

Looking for a vegetarian or vegan B&B experience? No problem, we’ve got a customised breakfast menu just for you. Simply flag your dietary requirements when you book through our site and we’ll take care of the rest.

Lovely escape to the countryside, quiet location. Our room including ensuite shower room was decorated and furnished to a very high standard. We enjoyed our hearty continental style breakfast which offered a wide choice of food. Our friendly hosts made us feel very welcome.

Janice & Hector, Perthshire – OAK

Stayed 2 nights at The Vicarage in Nidd when visiting the Great Yorkshire Show.  What a lovely tranquil place. Bedroom standard was excellent (wonderful shower), almost boutique standard at an affordable price and the breakfast setup fitted our needs perfectly as we had an early start. Eileen & Robin were lovely hosts.  You can tell that this business is very personal to them both.  What a gem of a find! We look forward to returning to the Vicarage someday.


The Vicarage is a stylish, North Yorkshire B&B in the little village of Nidd just outside Harrogate. A tranquil escape from the everyday for couples where you can unwind at your leisure, perfect for a great night’s sleep and breakfast in your room any time you want it.
