Property code: 74150

A perfect escape for anyone wanting to discover North Yorkshire, set in a quiet area of Knaresborough yet close to superb walks and nearby character towns, a perfect base for business or pleasure.

This charming mid-terrace house is located in the picturesque market town of Knaresborough, 4 miles north-east of the Victorian spa town, Harrogate. Spacious and full of character, it will feel like a home away from home, whether you're in Yorkshire on business or for pleasure. As well as being close to the Harrogate Convention Centre and Yorkshire Events Centre, the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Beauty is within 10 miles, as are plenty of visitor attractions.

 

This traditional Yorkshire cottage is as attractive on the outside as it is on the inside. Heading through the hallway into the lounge, the tasteful traditional decor adds character and comfort, with the open fire providing the finishing touch. Moving through the spacious dining room, you will come to the large, well-equipped kitchen that leads out to the rear garden. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms (one king-size, one double and one bunk bed) and a family bathroom, which is in addition to the ground-floor shower room. Outside, a pretty garden offers the perfect spot for a morning coffee as the sun rises.

 

Steeped in history, Knaresborough is a wonderful market town with lots of narrow streets of shops and eateries to explore. It also has good transport links with York and London, via Harrogate. Sitting above Nidd Gorge, it has a castle, museum and what is thought to be England's oldest tourist attraction, Mother Shipton's Cave and Petrifying Well. Nearby Nidd Gorge (2 miles) offers a peaceful setting where you can enjoy the scenery and wildlife whilst taking a leisurely stroll. You could also visit RHS Garden Harlow Carr (6 miles).

Very comfortable and well equipped house, particularly the kitchen facilities. Spacious rooms. Location slightly out of Knaresborough centre but just close enough to walk. Only negative was traffic noise in the front bedroom as on a main road. Would recommend for friends & families.

We had a lovely stay at Fenton House - welcoming, comfortable beds, well-equipped and nicely decorated. The main road is quite noisy in the mornings but wasn't a big problem. It's a great location with a 15 minute walk to town and railway station for day trips to York, Harrogate and Leeds. I would stay here again.

Fenton Cottage is perfect for a base in Yorkshire, so handy for Harrogate. Wetherby and York. Lots to do and see locally and plenty of great pubs for lunch/dinner. The house itself was delightful. Cosy, clean and was really a home from home. Perfect for two couples or families as had two bathrooms. Great entertaining space in dining room off of kitRead morechen. I would definitely recommend and also at a very good price for a week staycation. Thank you Fenton House, a few more memories made. Hide

We found the property was very well equipped, clean and tidy and had plenty of room for our party of five, although it will sleep six. Having two showers was really helpful and the kitchen was really well equipped with almost anything you could possibly need. The only drawback we found was that being on a busy main road meant that light sleepers miRead moreght find the traffic noise in the front bedroom intrusive. Overall we found the location ideal for easy access to multiple places of interest. Hide
