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 single) 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).

Lovely House, everything new, beds very comfy. Parking was tight, would advise reversing into lane. Would recommend to others.

Reviewed by Heather 18th August 2019

A very well appointed cottage. Very comfortable with all we needed to make our stay very pleasant. We found the evenings cool with no instruction on how to adjust the heating. The heating cam on in the mornings which was welcome, but we were out for the days. We have recommended the heating which is very adequate when on is adjusted.

Harrogate is a thriving, historic town at the heart of North Yorkshire and at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This fantastic town is a hit with culturists, historians and holidaymakers alike. Dubbed ‘The English Spa’ in 1596, the town boasts spa water high in iron, sulphur and salt. The Royal Pump Room is still open today as a museum, showcasing the original equipment that was used in its heyday. Two other major draws to the town are the Harrogate Convention Centre and the Great Yorkshire Showground. The former is a multi-purpose venue large enough to house huge conventions and business conferences. Many of the events are fan-based like the Lego-themed attractions and comic-cons. The latter is an outdoor venue that hosts even large events and shows, namely the agricultural Great Yorkshire Show.

Fancy a day of walking? Head to the Valley Gardens, home to a multitude of landscaped gardens that embrace different styles and influence. For further horticultural foray, head to the RHS Garden, Harlow Carr. The stunning gardens provide a leafy retreat where you can wander through woodland and alongside waterways.

The town centre is home to an array of boutique fashion shops, as well as high street favourites in and around the Victoria Shopping Centre. The Montpellier Quarter also offers exclusive shops and a huge range of antique dealers, ideal for hunting out a unique bargain. This fashionable spa town also plays host to many Michelin-starred restaurants too.

There is a host of places to visit and spend time at in and around Harrogate. We have a selection of holiday homes that include chic apartments, elegant townhouses and cosy cottages for romantic stays to inspire your break in Harrogate. Why not visit our collection to find your perfect property?
