Knaresborough 3 miles; Harrogate 6 miles; York 18 miles.
Ferrensby is a small rural village three miles from Knaresborough. Situated so close to the old Great North Road, it is not surprising that the biggest attraction in the village is an old coaching inn, the General Tarleton. The inn has been there for some 250 years, but in recent times it has developed into a particularly well reputed restaurant as well as remaining a proper country inn. At the edge of the quiet village, which has some attractive Georgian properties, there is an adventure maze to amuse and exhaust the kids. Nearby, Knaresborough is an ancient market and spa town on the fringe of the Yorkshire Dales, overlooking the River Nidd, and is one of the prettiest towns in North Yorkshire. Visit Mother Shipton's well, the Courthouse Museum, "Ye Oldest Chymist Shoppe in England" which dates back to 1720 and the House in the Rock. Enjoy wonderful walks by the river, cycling, climbing, fishing, boating or just take in the tranquil atmosphere and beautiful scenery. There are many interesting shops and galleries, and a market on Wednesdays. The historic cathedral cities of Ripon and York are close by, as are the Spa town of Harrogate, the great stately homes of Castle Howard and Harewood House, the Cistercian Abbeys of Fountains, Rievaulx and Jervaulx, and the castles of Middleham, Bolton and Richmond.

Previous visitors' comments about The Sun House:
Quiet location yet near to all we wanted to visit. The hosts were particularly friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive. We loved the gas burner in the living room and the attention to detail throughout.

The week we stayed here was more than perfect. We will be back soon to do some more exploring.

The property was an excellent base from which to explore the area and our hosts were friendly yet unobtrusive.
Ms Carnegie, Forfar, March 2013
This holiday was made perfect with the cottage. It is beautiful and perfect for anyone needing to get away from everyday life for a bit. The owners were lovely, helpful and smiley. I will be telling people to go there and will be trying to book another week off of work to go back there too.
