With a spacious country kitchen, bathroom with roll-top bath and lounge with exposed beams and a wood-burning stove, the property is able to sleep four people in one double room and one twin with adjacent dressing room.

Nestled in a quiet position in the peaceful village of Knayton, this charming stone-built, semi-detached cottage is just five miles from the market town of Thirsk. Formerly part of a larger Georgian house, this wonderful little cottage manages to seamlessly combine period features with practical, modern accommodation and has been furnished to a very high standard. The cottage comes with small, enclosed front and rear gardens - ideal for outdoor dining – however, for activities such as ball games, the house is only a few yards from the traditional village green.


All the previous reviews are spot-on. The photographs of this cottage do not do it justice. It is spotlessly clean and an absolute delight. The furnishings are first class and you'd need to go a long way to get a better welcome hamper. We, a family of 4 (kids 11 and 8) have stayed in several holiday cottages the length and breadth of the UK and this is by far the best. The owners, who live next door, have created a wonderful little gem.

This is an exceptional property - well worth the high Tourist Board rating.
Mrs Venter

This cottage was so lovely, clean, comfortable, well furnished, with great soft towels, with everything you wish for..., not to speak about the decoration... I had to take pictures of every rooms to show to my daughter who wasn't with us. Flowers in every rooms, amazing welcome treat, the cottage was behind expectation as you say in english! It's such a pity we are living so far away...because if not, I would book it for Christmas! The yorkshire moor is also a discovery, you can really do nice walks over there. There are lots of things to visit.

Our second visit to Knayton. A lovely well furnished cottage with friendly owners, a real home from home.
Mrs Skilling

The cottage was fabulous, everything that you required was there. Central to get to all locations in the area and the local pub in the village was excellent with fabulous food. Would highly recommend this cottage for a break.
