HOW TO FIND US

The Vicarage is perfectly placed for the road and rail network. This means you can easily stop by and explore our local area for a few days if you’re doing a road trip around the North (or a cycling trip for that matter, this is the home of the Tour de Yorkshire after all!). It’s  just 5 miles to the beautiful spa town of Harrogate, while the cathedral city of Ripon lies 8 miles to the north.

Our address is The Vicarage, Town Street, Nidd, North Yorkshire HG3 3BL.

It’s a tiny postcode of just three houses. Look out for The Vicarage sign. Street signs are in short supply around here.

DRIVING 

If you’re going to rely on your SatNav, here’s a heads up. Some systems are determined to send you to Nidd Hall Hotel. Be defiant, it will never work! From the hotel’s main road entrance, turn left then take the first left onto Town Street. There’s no street sign, just look for the red post box on your left once you have turned. Keep going for 3/4 mile and you’ll see The Vicarage sign on your right.

We are off the A61 Harrogate to Ripon Road. From the South, head from Harrogate towards Ripon. After the second Ripley roundabout continue towards Ripon and after 1/3 mile turn right onto Nidd Lane, just before a bus stop sign. If you miss it, take the next right which is Green Lane.

From the North, take the Ripon bypass and head for Harrogate.  After 3 miles there’s a short overtaking lane. Keep your eyes peeled for The Malt Shovel Inn sign and turn left.

Whether you are on Nidd Lane or Green Lane you will come to a T-junction. Turn right.  You’ll see The Vicarage sign on your left after a few hundred yards.

From Knaresborough go down the hill which is the main street and turn left at the mini roundabout. 50 yards later turn right at the next mini roundabout. Drive out of the town up the hill. After 2.3 miles you’ll see a sign for The Malt Shovel Inn and Brearton. Follow this road (but do not go into Brearton) for 2.5 miles and you’ll see The Vicarage sign on your left.

Turn into the gravelled yard and look for your designated parking spot – OAK, ASH or YEW.
