Lovely little cottage with everything you could need for a few days away. John & Helen were very friendly. Knaresborough is a very pretty place to visit and we loved a lazy morning on the river. Great location, so close to some gorgeous villages and dales.

Good location and only a 20 minute walk to the centre of Knaresborough where there is plenty to see and do. The Riverside down Abbey Road is wonderful and the views from the castle spectacular. The cottage is bijou but has everything required for the stay. The owners are friendly and very helpful with suggestions of where to go and what to see.
