Charming 18th century cottage offering comfortable accommodation for five guests, enjoying a pleasant location close to the River Nidd in the historic market town of Knaresborough.

Set just metres from the River Nidd in the town of Knaresborough, this is an attractive period cottage dating back to the mid-sixteenth century which has been lovingly updated by the owners and sleeps five.

Stepping inside this semi-detached cottage, guests will find a warm welcome awaits them in the cosy lounge with its beamed ceiling, warming wood burner, and inviting sofas. Those who choose to eat in are well-catered for in the kitchen/diner which comes with a good range of equipment. A beamed double bedroom is situated on the cottage’s first floor alongside the spacious bathroom which boasts a bath as well as a separate walk-in shower cubicle. The second bedroom, on the second floor, is a triple room which can be set up as either a double and one single, or with three single beds on request. Please note that this room has some areas of low-ceiling height. A courtyard area outside the cottage provides guests with a pleasant place to enjoy al fresco drinks or dining.

From the front door of this cottage, step just across to the road to find a friendly pub serving both lunch and dinner. Another pub can be found just 200 metres away, across the river bridge. Continue along the river to find a pretty waterside area with a tea room and boats for hire or head up the hill into town to discover a range of shops as well as the town’s railway station which offers frequent direct links to both York and Harrogate.

Cozy and well equipped. The kitchen and living room are small, but had everything that was needed. The rooms were ample and charming and the bathroom had great space. The village over delivered. Walkable with restaurants and a train station, Knaresborough oozed charm everywhere. This is a great place to visit the Yorkshire Dales and I'm very glad IRead more did. Hide

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?
