Welcome to Mickley Bed & Breakfast

For those of you in haste to get to the point, click here (or above tab Our Rooms) to see our charges!

Mickley B&B is a luxury Bed and Breakfast 5 miles north west of the historical city of Ripon, which is, we believe, the oldest and smallest city in England and tradition has it that the Town Crier blows his horn every evening at 21:00 to signify the setting of the watch, this has been done every night for well over 1000 years!
Mickley is one of the most traditional and unspoilt villages in Nidderdale's AONB and is situated between the North York Moors and The Yorkshire Dales.

Trip Advisor's Certificate of Excellence

Mickley Bed and Breakfast is a Certificate of Excellence Winner, click here to see all our wonderful reviews! This prestigious award places Mickley B&B in the top-performing 10% of all businesses worldwide on Trip Advisor, something we are very proud of.

A home from home family run Bed and Breakfast

We opened in 2012, having converted two of our spare rooms into two very comfortable and well equipped B&B bedrooms. We have very high standards and our guests’ wellbeing and comfort is our priority, nothing is too much trouble for us and we try to ensure that our guests enjoy their time here being looked after in the manner in which they would like to become accustomed!


For all astronomers, we have no street lights in Mickley so on a cloudless evening you can almost touch the moon and stars. Although we are not in an official 'Dark Sky Area' it is certainly worth bringing your telescope when you come and stay.

Children and Dogs

We are a Child-Friendly and Dog-Friendly B&B, but please advise of bringing either or both when booking. We have a high chair, a changing mat and books and toys you can borrow, all free of charge. We also have a dog's water bowl, dinner bowl and dog towels you can borrow.

There is room for a couple of children to be with their parents in The Amber Suite, a nominal charge will be made for this – please ask. We do not have camp beds so parents will have to provide sleeping bags, pillows and camp beds for their children.

Breakfast at Mickley’s

Should you require something extra for breakfast, like fresh fruit, please just ask when booking your room. A newspaper of your choice can (hopefully!) be delivered in time for you to read with your breakfast. Where ever possible we get local food. At no extra cost we will bring you breakfast in bed. This will be coffee or tea, juice, croissant, bread or toast with jams of your choice - just the same as on offer downstairs but we can not do a cooked breakfast for eating in the bedrooms.
