An absolute joy! Our all-too-short stay with Anita and John was very special. Their attention to detail for our every need was matched by the craftsmanship, design and creativity of their beautiful home. The welcome was a very warm one, and we enjoyed chatting with them both immensely. The breakfast was beautifully presented and creatively cooked - fruit, yoghurt, muesli, full cooked English, toast, pancakes etc. They thoughtfully accommodated my gluten sensitivity too. With their help we managed to get a real flavour of Knaresborough during our short stay. We hope to be back for a longer one soon.

A beautiful room with incredibly comfortable beds and close enough to the tourist centre for an easy walk (but not too close). Amazing breakfast - I was absolutely stuffed! - and both John and Anita are delightful to talk to. Great place to stay to do some of the nearby walks or just enjoy Knaresborough. Thank you for such a great stay!
