  • “We found Roecliffe cottage to be very clean and centrally situated for all the places we wished to visit such as Knaresborough, Ripon and York.”

    Although the cottage is situated next to quite a busy road inside you could hear very little road noise. Boroughbridge village, a few minutes away, is very pleasant and has several bakers, coffee shops and butchers etc. It was however disappointing that the owners didn’t provide an information book promoting both Boroughbridge and wider Yorkshire! We arrived tired and hungry and shopped at a small Spar not realising there is a very large Morrisons just a few minutes away. Also, several neighbours (who were all very pleasant) appear to have different views on the dedicated parking for the cottage. We did park on the main road in the end but it felt safer to park in spaces behind the cottage and obviously more convenient to take cases and shopping in etc. We never did find the answer to the parking question! It would also have been useful to know about recycling. We did however find an excellent small tourist information office in Boroughbridge a few days before we left. They were very helpful regarding local walks and places of interest. In the cottage the kitchen was well equipped, but it would have been nice to have a toaster rather than having to use the electric grill. Positives though were the washing machine and separate dryer. If we had one major complaint about the cottage it would be the poor-quality mattress in the main bedroom. This has been mentioned in previous reviews, the mattress is clearly not fit for purpose in a cottage of this standard and price!!! All in all then a pleasant place to stay and once the mattress is sorted Roecliffe cottage will become a lovely holiday home.

The property

Resting in the small town of Boroughbridge is Roecliffe, a charming mid-terrace cottage offering four guests a lovely spot to call home when exploring North Yorkshire.

Set over three floors and benefiting from a fronat private outdoor area and a shared courtyard at the rear, Roecliffe makes an excellent touring base for visiting York, Ripon and Harrogate.

Be welcomed into the entrance hallway before entering into the attractive sitting room, where a gas fire adds extra warmth in the winter months, and two pink sofas provide somewhere to relax while you enjoy watching TV after a big day.

Make your way into the kitchen/diner when you're feeling peckish to rustle up a feast in the fitted kitchen, with further appliances in the adjoining utility area, including a washer/dryer.

Head upstairs to find the first bedroom, boasting a king-size bed with plenty of storage for your things, with a bathroom on this floor too, hosting a bath with an overhead shower.

Climb another set of stairs to the attic room beneath sloping ceilings, where a double bed sits below Velux windows.

Sip your morning coffee in the shared courtyard to start your day before you set off on your first adventures.

The cathedral city of York rests less than 20 miles away and is bursting with things to see and do; take a tour of the beautiful York Minster before a stroll around the York City Walls and a trip to Clifford's Tower and the York Castle Museum, or travel further back in time at JORVIK Viking Centre where a Viking village has been replicated including the sights, sounds and smells!

Yorkshire Museum is home to five galleries showcasing archaeological treasures, with beautiful museum gardens home to Roman ruins, whilst The York Dungeon, Shambles, and York's Chocolate Story are all well worth visiting too.

Head to the spa town of Harrogate for a delightful afternoon tea at the famous Bettys Café Tea Rooms, before exploring the scenic Valley Gardens and The Stray, Mercer Art Gallery and Royal Pump Room Museum.

Newby Hall & Gardens is a great day out for families with thanks to the kids' adventure playground here, part of the 25-acre grounds of this Georgian house with a café and shop too.

Walkers can delight in hiking through the Howardian Hills AONB and the Nidderdale AONB, with lots of lakes and rivers nearby for some excellent fishing, and of course lots of cycling opportunities along the scenic country lanes.

Make memories to last with your loved ones at Roecliffe.
