The property is ideal for visiting the area. It contains everything you'll need for a stay. Easy to walk into Knaresborough centre. I would say Harrogate has better and more choice for evening restaurants. The property is on a very busy main road and can be noisy with hgvs and buses passing. I didn't manage to get parked close to the property but tRead morehe nearby side streets seemed safe enough to park in. Hide

We had a really lovely stay at this excellent house. Ideal for a family, really well equipped, spotlessly clean and nicely decorated throughout. Knaresbrough is such a lovely part of the world, and the walk into the centre is very easy. Good transport links to explore Leeds, Harrogate and York too. We had a great time!

Very comfortable and well equipped house, particularly the kitchen facilities. Spacious rooms. Location slightly out of Knaresborough centre but just close enough to walk. Only negative was traffic noise in the front bedroom as on a main road. Would recommend for friends & families.

We had a lovely stay at Fenton House - welcoming, comfortable beds, well-equipped and nicely decorated. The main road is quite noisy in the mornings but wasn't a big problem. It's a great location with a 15 minute walk to town and railway station for day trips to York, Harrogate and Leeds. I would stay here again.

Fenton Cottage is perfect for a base in Yorkshire, so handy for Harrogate. Wetherby and York. Lots to do and see locally and plenty of great pubs for lunch/dinner. The house itself was delightful.

We found the property was very well equipped, clean and tidy and had plenty of room for our party of five, although it will sleep six. Having two showers was really helpful and the kitchen was really well equipped with almost anything you could possibly need.
