Property code: HH031

Five-star stable conversion property sleeping four guests, located in a quiet courtyard close to the centre of Knaresborough and just a few minutes walk from the town’s medieval castle.

Tucked out of the way in a quiet cobbled square, this five-star cottage and its sister property, Shire Cottage, enjoy a fantastic location in Knaresborough town centre. A Grade II listed converted stable, the cottage has been beautifully updated to create a stylish property boasting a wonderful two-person sauna.

Guests love returning to this pretty cottage at the end of a busy day and firing up the private sauna which can be found in the en-suite wet room to the property’s ground-floor king-size bedroom. Once you feel fully relaxed, whip up a favourite meal before sitting down with a film in the lounge/diner. In the property’s well-equipped kitchen. Wooden open-tread stairs lead up to the second bedroom, a super-king size room which can be made up as a twin on request, thanks to the zip-and-link beds. The en-suite to this bedroom is a stylish bathroom boasting a deep double-ended bath with a handheld shower: almost as relaxing as the sauna downstairs. Outside, a patio seating with garden furniture is shared with the neighbouring holiday cottage and off road parking for one car.

Situated at the heart of Knaresborough town centre, this cottage sits in an attractive cobble courtyard next to an historic former pub which is now a family home. Everything that the town has to offer is just a short walk away, including the atmospheric ruins of the town’s castle, the picturesque riverside, and the intriguing Mother Shipton’s Cave. Heading out of town, Harrogate can be found just 4 miles to the west, whilst both York and Leeds are situated less than 20 miles.

 

  • 2 bedrooms - super-king-size zip-and-links (which can be made into twins on request)
  • 1 en-suite shower room with WC and 1 en-suite bathroom with bath, hand held shower and WC
  • Oven and hob, microwave and fridge/freezer
  • Electric sauna for 2 people
  • TV/DVD and DAB radio
  • Cot and highchair available on request
  • Bike storage for 2 bikes
  • Off-road parking available for one car
  • Pubs and shops within easy walking distance

Really comfortable and well equipped cottage in a great central location. Knaresborough is a lovely Yorkshire market town which has a lot going for it considering its size. Particularly enjoyed the castle area and the walks along the Nidd Gorge. Highly recommended.
