Reviews

We had a wonderful stay at Tenter Turret. The owners were lovely and the house was very clean, inviting and lovely and warm. As it was Christmas time, they had decorated it with a tree and lots of Christmassy trimmings. We really appreciated it. Gorgeous house in a gorgeous location.

The house was gorgeous, had everything we needed as a family. It was a great location along the banks of the Nidd, close to the heart of Knaresborough. There were teabags and biscuits so that we could have a refreshing cuppa after our long journey getting there. We would stay again, it was absolutely lovely.

Booked to stay here for a long weekend with my husband, mother and brother in law and my Dad to celebrate my mother in laws 60th Birthday. The cottage is just as it looked on the website, gorgeous. The roof terrace was amazing with the most incredible views of the viaduct, really amazing. It has its own little cave just off the living room and 4 cosy bedrooms, one with a small balcony at the front of the property facing the river. Large bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower, this was also fantastic. My Dad is disabled but can walk with the aid of sticks so he was ok, however if you are a guest with limited mobility then I wouldn't recommend this property, as there are lots of steps up to the property and due to its unique design, lots of steps inside too. I would absolutely recommend this property and hope to be able to return there myself.

Just spent 5 nights at Tenter Turret in Knaresborough . what a wonderful quirky house with roof top seating what a fab view. Its own quirky cave not many holiday homes can say they have their own cave can they. Place was clean and tidy welcome pack on arrival with tea coffee sugar milk and biscuits. Beautiful vase of roses in the window what more could you ask for . If you want a place to stay that's a bit different then Tenter Turret is the place for you we would definitely go back we all loved it.

We just wanted to say Thank You for letting us stay in your beautiful and quirky house. We had a fantastic holiday and will be recommending it to all our friends. The sunny patio was lovely and we would take it home with us if we could! Thanks again!

I can't praise the accommodation enough - incredibly interesting period property, exciting to explore, fantastic views from the bedrooms and roof, and stunning scenery all around.
