  • "We had a very relaxing short break and complete peace and quiet in this cosy, tastefully furnished and extremely clean cottage in a beautiful part of the country."

    Owner Graham is really welcoming too. The cottage has everything needed for a short stay, the bed is comfy, and there is plenty of drawer storage space. It was fab that for once we didn't have to navigate around sizable amounts of old paperbacks, stacks of board games and an array of ornaments when unpacking our belongings. There's plenty of storage space for food as well. The description does not really do this cottage full justice, e.g. there is free wifi and Netflix, and a power socket in the living area has USB ports, as do the bedside lamps in the bedroom. Whilst there is no cooker (which we knew beforehand and didn't need), there is a plug-in double hotplate in one of the kitchen cupboards. Just a heads-up for anyone on the larger side: it can be a bit of an adventure for more voluptuous guests to try and squeeze through the little gap at the side of the shower screen, which is firmly installed in situ (going by the online photograph, we had assumed that this would swing open). The shower itself is absolutely divine though. We returned home totally relaxed and would gladly stay in one of Graham's properties again.

  • "Lovely, quiet, comfy, warm, cosy and with good parking."

    We alreadyknew the cooking facilities were basic but, since we ate out (no hardship with all the restaurants, cafes, pubs, etc. in Knaresborough & surrounding area) and only snacked in the evening, it was fine for us. The shower and the heating are first class. Graham was welcoming, very helpful and gave us useful advice on places to visit, parking etc. We certainly hope to return.

    E. cheap plastic twist and slides don’t stay up, caution leaving shower through small gap with a high step down to floor , valve for money, Questionable,

  • "Had a great stay."

    The owner, Graham was very welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We have suggested that a fan would be a good addition to the facility, especially during hot weather. Keep up the good work Graham!

The property

Nestled on the outskirts of the lovely Knaresborough in North Yorkshire, is this charming single-storey property, Tom's Cabin.

Benefitting from an open-plan living area, off-road parking and close access to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Tom’s Cabin welcomes two guests, perfect for a romantic escape with your loved one.

Upon entering your new home-from-home, kick back and relax in the plush sitting area as the designated chef gets to grips with a modest range of appliances to rustle up a tasty dish; settle down at the dining table ready to tuck in or venture out onto the private lawn area to enjoy an alfresco affair as the stars appear overhead.

If the evening grows cooler, retreat back inside and treat yourself to a warm shower in the en-suite bathroom before climbing into a sumptuous double bed where you can slope off into a night’s refreshing embrace.

If you can tear yourself away from this charming base, venture into the centre of Knaresborough where you’ll find all your nearest conveniences so you can stock up on the essentials or delight in a hearty pub lunch on the days you don’t feel like cooking; here, you can also tour the 14th century ruins of Knaresborough Castle, take a relaxing stroll along the River Nidd to reach Knaresborough Viaduct, or look for Mother Shipton’s Cave.

Further afield, spend the day in the lovely spa town of Harrogate, home to the Royal Pump Museum, Valley Gardens Harrogate and of course, the renowned Bettys Café Tea Rooms, where you can sample a whole host of tasty treats!

Traverse the Yorkshire Dales National Park to discover the National Trust sites of Brimham Rocks and Fountains Abbey, in addition to Hardraw Force Waterfall, Ingleborough Cave and Malham Cove, all with plenty to fill your days.

For your next romantic retreat with the one you love, choose Tom's Cabin.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
