The property owners kindly left a welcome pack of cake, tea, coffee, milk and a lovely jar of honey from their own hive. We were made to feel very welcome and they even done a clothing wash for us to save us finding a laundrette. All in all we had a lovely stay.

Good location and only a 20 minute walk to the centre of Knaresborough where there is plenty to see and do. The Riverside down Abbey Road is wonderful and the views from the castle spectacular.

Had a very pleasant week away in Yorkshire. The property is just a 20 minute walk from the centre of Knaresborough so we could leave the car behind on several occasions. Everything you need to cater for yourself is in the little kitchen area but there are several pubs and restaurants nearby for eating out too.
