Good Hotel Guide Review
Denise Carter’s welcoming B&B is in the centre of a charming market town, a few minutes’ walk from Knaresborough Castle. From its secret passages to its (alleged) castle stones, the 300-year-old town house is home to some intrigue. The traditional bedrooms, however, are straightforwardly comfortable, and thoughtfully stocked with books, magazines, still and sparkling water, and a hospitality tray. In the evening, bars, pubs and restaurants are all a stroll away – the hostess has recommendations aplenty – but ask for a simple supper, and you might receive a bowl of soup, an omelette, a sandwich. Breakfast is an event. A Slow Food adherent, Denise Carter bakes her own sourdough bread and makes jams and compotes on the Aga; small-scale producers supply the eggs, milk, smoked fish, bacon and sausages on the menu. Sitting room (honesty bar, books, magazines, newspapers, games), dining room, conservatory. Small courtyard garden, ‘wildlife’ area with bird feeders. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Classic FM (breakfast). Parking. Children (cot, high chair, books, games and toys, family room) and dogs (in 2 stable block rooms with outside access; home-made treats) welcomed. 4 miles from Harrogate. 12 bedrooms (2 on ground floor, suitable for disabled; 2 in converted stables). Per room B&B single £60–£100, double £85–£125.
