Handsome Grade II listed property sleeping six guests and featuring a spectacular turreted rooftop terrace offering views over the River Nidd and Knaresborough’s medieval castle.

Stay in a Grade II listed turreted property with its own cave cut into the side of the cliff and roof-top terrace with views of the River Nidd. All this can be yours, and it’s within 0.3 miles of Knaresborough town centre. This unique property is a great place to stay, whatever the reason for your visit to North Yorkshire.


A fantastic blend of period features and contemporary fixtures and furnishings, this quirky  property is the perfect spot for a truly memorable stay. Beamed ceilings in almost all of the rooms as well as exposed brickwork give the property a charming appeal, whilst views to the river and castle can be enjoyed from two of the four bedrooms as well as the roof terrace. The ground floor offers an attractive kitchen with a 200-year old floor, seven steps from which lead to the spacious lounge/diner, which in turn leads through to the cave cut into the cliffs. The bathroom has a sumptuous rolltop bath and separate shower cubicle. Please not that children and pets are not permitted to use the roof terrace due to the low railings, but there is separate garden accessed via the first-floor landing which is a great spot for BBQs.


Situated right on the riverside in the market town of Knaresborough, this property is ideally situated for easy access to the town centre shops and eateries, as well as for the station which is situated just a stroll away, a few hundred metres along the river, allowing easy, frequent access into Harrogate for its convention centre and spa baths.

Reviewed by Roy 21st December 2019

The cottage is quirky, with plenty of steps and stairs. The bedrooms divide nicely into two blocks of 2 (one double and one single). Overall a good position, both for riverside walks and for access to the town centre.

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?
