A treasure of a cottage!

The photos for this cottage really don't do it justice. First class accommodation where the owners have thought of everything. Have already booked my next stay!

Superb cottage

The cottage was the best we have ever stayed in. The owner,who lives next door, was very helpful. The village is very quiet, pub nearby! Really relaxing holiday, with lots of places nearby to visit. Highly recommended.

Loved it even more second time around

We have stayed at Knayton House Cottage twice now, our last visit being in May of this year (2011) and we really love it.. Susan and David, the owners, could not be more helpfull. The amenities are excellent with a well equipped kitchen and dining area. Living area and bedrooms are well presented and comfortable beds We find it a great location too for all points in Yorkshire be it shopping or touring . We used the York Park and Ride for a hassle free vistit to York. We like Knayton House.

A truly excellent holiday experience

The whole experience was super from beginning to end. The cottage was everything we had hoped it would be and the owners were extremely helpful. The location was excellent with access to the countryside (with spectacular views and beautiful little villages), the coast and also cities. A visit to York was simplicity itself, especially using the Park and Ride facilities. We never had time to visit the pub in the village but hopefully will next time.

I am reluctant to give Knayton House Cottage such a glowing review as I would quite like it to be a well kept secret! However, Sue has worked so hard to make the cottage perfect for her guests that it is only fair that I am honest! The photos don't do this property justice. Everything is such good quality and done to the highest spec. We have stayed here 3 times in the last 18 months and it looks like new every time and we can't believe that people have stayed there inbetween! Everything is immaculate and you get such a warm wlecome from Sue who ensures a hamper is ready for your arrival - Betty's bread, milk, cheese, fruit, eggs, fresh coffee, butter - she has thought of everything. Location wise, it is an easy distance from some great towns - Northallerton, Helmsley, Thirsk. A great base. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.
