Located on Kirkgate St, it is just a street below the Knaresborough castle thus a few minutes walk from the castle carpark where we left our car (pay-and-display parking at £1 for 2 hours, but if you arrive after 6pm...

A very lovely B&B, clean and comfortable with an owner who can't do enough for you! With generous quality breakfasts of good local food. Owner remembers needs and requirements of returning guests - so kind and thoughtful.

Just gorgeous, beautiful owners, super warm and friendly, loved interborough, so pretty, get yourself some Drake's fish and chips and enjoy them looking at that million dollar view from the castle. Parking is a bit of a pain but it's worth it. We caught the train to York for a day as well, to easy and a beautiful city.

A lovely property, 2 minutes walk to the riverside where there are cafes and boating. Knaresborough castle just round the corner and an outdoor pool ideal for kids. The property has very friendly owners who provided a delicious breakfast to start the day. The room was very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended.
