    The property was beautifully renovated and very well equipped. The owner left cookies and milk for us on arrival which was a lovely touch.

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.
