Bishop Monkton – Between Harrogate and Ripon
With open fields to three sides The Old Telephone Exchange offers a real ‘get away from it all!’
Situated 4 miles from Ripon and 10 miles from Harrogate, Bishop Monkton is ideally placed to explore the area. The 36 bus passes 1 mile away every 20 minutes which travels to Ripon or Harrogate and then onto Leeds.
Bishop Monkton itself has a lovely village pub.
The exchange has 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom and a cosy log burner, as well as an outside area with a table and a view of the open spaces.
What our guests say….
A very relaxing and comfortable stay. Plenty of walking – to Ripon and back along the river and canal, further afield in Nidderdale – and plenty of coffee and cake stops. The Old Telephone Exchange is a great holiday get-away. Andy & Helen, August 21.
We had a really peaceful break. Enjoyed the location, views & sunsets. Well furnished with everything you would need. Thank you. Tim & Sandra, August 2021.
A wonderful stay at the most peaceful cottage that has everything you could need and more. We didn’t want to leave! Thank you! Ellie & Lewis, Cumbria. August 2021.
We had a wonderful time – the location is idyllic and The Old Telephone Exchange was perfect. The weather was good to us and we visited Harrogate, Brimham Rocks, Ripon and Richmond among others. A beautiful part of the country and we will definitely be coming back soon. Ian & Sharon, Bristol. July 2021.
Such a lovely, well looked after cottage in a beautiful location. It had everything we needed for a relaxing break. We had a particularly lovely walk round Bishop Monkton where baby Scarlett saw sheep, chickens and run away cows! Alex, Harriet & Scarlett (her 1st birthday!). July 2021.

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful cottage. The views are so peaceful and we spent each evening just watching the sunset from the porch. We had everything we needed at this idyllic retreat. Adam & Lola from Hungerford. July 2021.
The absolute perfect location for our honeymoon! The cottage was absolutely beautiful and the addition of sheep neighbours was a delight. The location was ideal for days out in York, Ripon and Harrogate. Definitely plan on coming back! Thank you xxx 🙂 Emma & Aaron. July 2021.
