Lovely house, lovely village, lovely family. Andy and Lucy made us very welcome and comfortable. They went out of their way to look after us. Thank you so much!
We had a wonderful stay with Aileen and Mike. Such a friendly couple who made us feel so welcome, they were great hosts. The room was just as described, the bed very comfortable. Would recommend for a visit to Edinburgh.
Great place to stay for a visit to Knaresborough. Only one or two minutes drive to the village center. We missed meeting Andy and Lucy since they were away, but they had everything laid out nicely, and all went very well. Highly recommended
Nice to see Andy again and to meet the rest of the family. A pleasant and friendly stay as usual. Clean, comfortable and friendly. Thanks.

All very useful. A lovely friendly family amazing breakfast beautifully presented. Would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone.

About the Host, Andy & Lucy
We welcome you to our home.
We know the Harrogate/Knaresborough areas very well and have many great local tips for days out, eateries and drinks etc. We too love travelling, we are big music and arts fans and love a good chat. We have a chatty 8 year old daughter and a friendly 5 year old greyhound. We've been told by Air BnB and numerous guests that we're SUPER HOSTS, but see what you think! Feel free to say hello any time.
