We booked Rosies Retreat last minute and only for 3 days. It was an absolute tonic for 2 winter worn and weary folks. Cosy, warm, comfortable and so clean and tidy. Walking from the doorstep to Knaresborough and Harrogate and a good bus service from the main road meant car free days too. We loved our stay, just wish it had been for longer.
