Explore North Yorkshire from this delightful mews cottage in Knaresborough. Sleeping four guests, the two-bedroom cottage is set within a former stable building in the historic market town. Well positioned for visiting Harrogate and spending time in the picturesque rolling hills of Nidderdale, it is also ideal for days out to York and the scenic Howardian Hills.

Open the front door to this pretty, Grade II-listed cottage and find yourselves in the cosy lounge. Choose a book from the shelf, find a film on TV, or settle on the sofas to plan your next Yorkshire adventure. The kitchen/diner is a generous space, where you can unpack the groceries and fresh Yorkshire produce you have sourced in Knaresborough before whipping up culinary feasts for your friends and family to enjoy. Pull a bottle of chilled wine from the fridge then pull chairs up to the round table to dine together. There is also a useful utility room close at hand. When you are ready to turn in for the night, ascend the stairs up to the first floor of the cottage. Here, you will find two super-king-size bedrooms that have zip-and-link beds and can therefore also be made up as twins if required and discussed in advance. One of these bedrooms enjoys the luxury of an en-suite bathroom while the other features an en-suite shower room. Carry your morning coffee out into the shared courtyard on sunny days. Have afternoon tea here too after your days out in the summer.

Stroll 0.5 miles into the centre of Knaresborough to potter in the shops and dine out. See the ruined castle overlooking the River Nidd and visit the enchanting Mother Shipton’s Cave and the Petrifying Well. Enjoy a walk through the wetlands at Staveley Nature Reserve, 4.5 miles away.

A fantastic stay - just too short! From the initial correspondence to handing back the keys, the whole experience was seamless. The cottage was beautifully furnished and comfortable, the hosts exceptionally friendly, and the location was perfect for us. Even our dog loved it. Full marks all round.

The cottage is extremely comfortable with added parking which is always a bonus. Lovely en-suite to each bathroom and bedrooms were spacious with good quality bed linen and towels. Kitchen had everything you could ask for with additional extras such as milk, shortbread and Prosecco.
