The hotel is idyllically situated in the market
town of Knaresborough, with its many ancient
walkways, cobbled alleyways and historic buildings.
Knaresborough is surrounded by some of the most
varied and beautiful scenery to be found anywhere in
the whole of the United Kingdom.
The town itself is just a stone’s throw away from the
cosmopolitan centre of Harrogate, Leeds and York and
is situated just 4 miles form the A1.
The town is also served by all major road networks and just 25 minutes from Leeds/Bradford airport.
Whatever time of year the grounds and the House make for a memorable and fantastic setting.
During the summer imagine Pimms, cocktails and canapés on the lawn, followed by glorious homemade food, or in the winter, mulled wine served to you and your guests by our roaring log fires.
Our Head Chef Victoria has created a selection of menus for you and your guests to enjoy.
Put this together with our extensive wine menus, friendly atmosphere and professional service we are sure you will have an occasion to remember.
