Five-star stable conversion property sleeping four guests, located in a quiet courtyard close to the centre of Knaresborough and just a few minutes walk from the town’s medieval castle.

Enjoying a fantastic tucked away location in a historic cobbled courtyard in the charming market town of Knaresborough, this lovely property is only a short stroll to the bustling shops, restaurants and dog-friendly pubs. Explore the cliff-top Norman castle and take in the far-reaching views across the River Nidd. Stroll along the picturesque riverbank to sniff out the tranquil Bebra Gardens and stop for a treat in one of the dog-friendly riverside cafes.

Step through the front door of your cosy cottage and into the warm and welcoming lounge/diner, a lovely space to sit and relax in one of the comfy chairs while your hound sprawls on the large rug. Prepare delicious dinners in the fully equipped kitchen. Once the stables harness room, this is a room full of character where cooking is a pleasure. The first of the bedrooms is on this floor, an indulgent room with super king-size bed, en-suite wet room and two-person sauna. Galleried stairs lead to the first floor where you can rest your paws in the master suite, another super king-size bedroom with luxurious en-suite bathroom. Stepping outside, catch the last of the evening sun in your pretty courtyard garden.

Perfectly positioned to stroll into the heart of Knaresborough with all its amenities, your cottage is the ideal base to explore all the local attractions. Follow the river to the intriguing Mother Shipton’s Cave (0.5 miles) and the incredible Petrifying Well. Take your canine companion on a trip down the river as you hire a boat and row yourself along the scenic waters. Further afield, the historic town of Harrogate (3.5 miles) is within easy reach, as is the Viking city of York (17 miles), easily reached on the train which your dog can ride too.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

Really convenient for walking into Knaresborough, which is a lovely market town, and for trips to York, Leeds, Harrogate and the Dales. Everything you could want in the apartment, and Richard and Jackie on hand, friendly and helpful.

This cottage is spacious, very well equipped and decorated to a high standard. Centrally located with easy walking access to the town centre.
