    “We had to wash kitchen floor on arrival.”

    Main oven not working only two slots of the toaster worked. Only one bin liner and recycled rubbish bin full to the brim right outside the entrance with bottles, etc on the ground. Very very noisy location particularly when windows open in the heat making sleep very difficult

About the property

Enjoying a peaceful position within the picturesque rural village of Ferrensby, North Yorkshire is The Old Chapel, a traditional, detached cottage.

Next, is the well-equipped kitchen/diner, complete with everything you could possibly need to cater for yourselves, as well as a spacious dining table to relish in the company of your loved ones.

About the location


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. This quiet village, also has some attractive Georgian properties. 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, Knaresborough 14th century Castle, "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.
