  • "Well appointed cottage, very quiet and Graham was friendly and helpful."

    Weather was very good and we enjoyed our trips to Knaresborough, York and Harrogate. We used the local bus service to Knaresborough which only took about 15 minutes. Also we would recommend the Guys Fawkes Inn for a meal which was a 30 minute walk from the cottage.

  • "We loved our stay at this cottage."

    It was a lovely cottage, clean and homely. Very spacious and thought it was a lovely touch having jigsaws/games provided in the cottage. The owner was easily contactable and very friendly. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others

  • "We had a great stay in Plum Cottage."

    Location was ideal for this part of our holiday: a short drive outside of Knaresborough, and around 20 minutes from Harrogate. We took the picturesque train journey to Leeds on one day, which takes you over the viaduct overlooking Knaresborough's riverside attractions. The cottage was great for our needs: ample parking, clean, comfortable beds, good shower, well equipped kitchen, and spacious living room. Graham the owner was very attentive. Highly recommended for a holiday base in this lovely part of Yorkshire.

  • "A nice property with a bright spacious living area and parking just outside."

    The owner was very helpful and the property very clean apart from some mould in the shower. Unfortunately the double bed was the most uncomfortable I’ve ever tried to sleep in, it was lumpy and felt like it had two people sized shallows in it. A shame in an otherwise very comfortable house.

  • "Nice quiet cottage well laid out."

    Good base for exploring Knaresborough, York, Harrogate and eastern end of the dales area. Owner was very helpful. One tip: directions say last section on Market Flat Lane is 1.0 mile. It is more like 1.25 miles and is just after a new estate on the left.

The property

Tucked away on the outskirts of Knaresborough, in North Yorkshire, is this fabulous, ground-floor abode, Plum Cottage.

Benefitting from an open-plan living space, an enclosed yard and easy access to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Plum Cottage is a fantastic choice for a family of four looking to escape to this serene part of Northern England.

After a day of hiking, look forward to unwinding in the open-plan living space, curling up on the sofa and tuning into your favourite shows on the Smart TV.

Move over to the kitchen and begin preparing something tasty, utilising the electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge with ice box, whilst the addition of the washing machine means you won’t need to bring your whole wardrobe.

As the night grows dark, head to the bedrooms to catch your rest; there is a double and a twin serviced by a gleaming shower room.

To the outside of Plum Cottage is an enclosed yard and there is off-road parking for one car.

Head into the centre of Knaresborough for a choice of amenities, including several convenience stores from which you can stock-up on the essentials, whilst there are also restaurants and pubs should you fancy a night away from the kitchen.

Walk off all that food around Mackintosh Park, tour the Mother Shipton’s Cave or take the opportunity to see the remains of Knaresborough Castles.

Knaresborough also has a train station which provides great links to the East Coast mainline at York and to Leeds in the other direction, whilst there is also a bus service that runs to the spa town of Harrogate.

The city of York is 20 miles away and offers beautiful architecture with the imposing structure of York Minster, plus there is a great selection of shops and a thriving arts and culture scene.

Escape to Plum Cottage and experience the best of North Yorkshire.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Harrogate 2 miles; York 18 miles.

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. Its location makes it ideal as a base for touring the stunning countryside of the North Yorkshire Moors and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. For lovers of history, St John’s Church, Knaresborough House and the now-ruined Knaresborough Castle were built by the Normans in around 1100 AD. Other attractions in the town include Mother Shipton’s petrifying well, the Courthouse Museum, "Ye Oldest Chymist Shoppe in England" which dates back to 1720 and the quirky House in the Rock. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy wonderful walks by the river, cycling, climbing, fishing, boating or just sitting and taking in the tranquil atmosphere and beautiful scenery. The town centre has many interesting shops and galleries, and there is a colourful and lively market held on Wednesdays. The fascinating, 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.
