Description

York and Harrogate make interesting days out from these lovingly converted barn which are just a mile from the centre of Knaresborough. Lovingly restored to provide independent, co-ordinated and very comfortable year-round accommodation, The Stable and The Dairy are tucked away in a courtyard where visitors can sit peacefully listening to the tumbling water from the attractive water feature, and The Cartshed enjoys a private garden enclosed by a rustic fence. Enjoy extensive walks from the owners’ farmland to the River Nidd. The bustling market town of Knaresborough is well served with shops, pubs, restaurants and a Wednesday market. Famous for Mother Shipton’s Cave and Petrifying Well, Knaresborough boasts an interesting castle, painted by JMW Turner, perched high on the cliff top. Stroll along the riverside promenade, relax with an ice cream or hire a boat and spend an afternoon ‘messing about on the river’! Just upstream visit Nidd Gorge, a great place for walks and wildlife watching. Explore the elegant spa town of Harrogate, 4 miles, with its Royal Pump Room, restored Turkish baths, theatre, wonderful shops and tearooms (with Betty’s heading the list). For a good day out, the medieval city of York is just half an hour’s drive away. Steeped in history and packed with attractions including the iconic minster and Jorvik Centre, York appeals to all ages. The Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and the coastal resorts of Scarborough and Whitby are all easily accessible. Shop and restaurant 1 mile, pub ¼ mile.
The Stable can be booked together with The Dairy (CC217024) and The Cartshed (UK2225) to accommodate up to 10 guests.

About the local area

Known for its splendid Victorian architecture, huge parkland gardens and its health spas, Harrogate has plenty to offer for a great break in the country. While it lies just 20 miles from York, Harrogate and its surrounding area have enough attractions to make it an ideal holiday destination in its own right.

Among the highlights here are the famous Pump Rooms, which continue to function today just as they did when they pumped water to the Royal Baths from the mid-ninteenth-century.

Also well worth a visit are the parkland areas of Harlow Carr Gardens and Valley Gardens, both of which are open all year round and have a wealth of fascinating plants and wildlife. Between enjoying the gardens, you may want to visit the famous Betty's tea shop for a spot of lunch.

Many of the attractions, however, lie just outside Harrogate itself. For example, Knaresborough Castle -- situated on the York Road, three miles out of town - dates back to the 12th century and sits gloriously on the banks of the river. A little further out (15 miles) is the World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal. Built in the 12th century, the abbey grounds include a water mill and an exquisite Elizabethan mansion. The grounds of Studley Royal, meanwhile, are home to more than 500 deer.

Further highlights include Harewood House (7 miles out of town), Skipton Castle (20 miles) and the Settle to Carlisle Railway line, which starts at Settle (30 miles from Harrogate) and is regarded as one of the most spectacular lines in the country.
