Self-catering holiday accommodation in Knaresborough
A picturesque maze of medieval streets and stone staircases, the peaceful market town of Knaresborough is the perfect destination for self-catering retreats in Yorkshire. Well-known for its striking railway viaduct that crosses the Nidd Gorge, its castle ruins and nearby famous attractions, it calls to all those looking to chill out and head out to explore from their luxury accommodation. Step out from one of our Knaresborough cottages and visit the town’s marketplace for a cup of tea, before enjoying a leisurely stroll along the stunning suntrap promenade that runs along the base of the town’s imposing cliffs. From beautiful woodland strolls to picnics by the river, there is plenty to keep you entertained during a holiday in this beautiful part of the county.
Perhaps one of the best-known attractions in Yorkshire is Mother Shipton’s Cave, located on the other side of the River Nidd within half a mile of the town centre. Believed to have been a 15th-century soothsayer, Mother Shipton has long been the focus of local legend and her cave, along with the site’s intriguing Petrifying Well, is believed to be England’s oldest visitor attraction. Branching further out from our luxury cottages in Knaresborough, cyclists can ride along the Beryl Burton cycleway starting from Knaresborough and leading to Harrogate, Bilton and Ripley by traffic-free routes. To secure your Yorkshire adventure, take a look at our Knaresborough holiday cottages and look forward to exploring the county from the most idyllic private retreat.
