“Luxury B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Took notice of recent comments on Trip adviser when looking for somewhere to stay for a couple of nights.Knabbs Ash more than lived up to every expectation.It is a wonderful place-very homely,spotlessly clean, superb breakfast with the added bonus of a Residents lounge. Would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B to anyone who appreciates excellence.

My husband and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at Knabbs Ash and we didn't want to leave. Ideally situated just outside Harrogate but within easy reach of Ripon, York and the surrounding areas we couldn't have chosen a better location.
The B&B is set back off the busy A59 but it felt like a peaceful and quiet oasis of calm.
Our room was full of thoughtful touches to make our stay special- chocolates by our bedside, sherry in a decanter and a range of soaps and lotions in the well fitted bathroom.
Our bed was extremely comfortable and we particularly enjoyed sleeping under crisp white sheets and proper blankets- sleeptastic!
We didn't use our courtesy tray but it was stocked with tea/coffee and hot chocolate drinks.
Sheila is a fabulous hostess, kind, thoughtful and very welcoming. we had a cuppa on arrival and some very nice lavender shortbread- well to be honest it was delicious and I ate it all!!
Breakfast was a delight and the food is just lovely- nothing is too much trouble and the marmalade (homemade) was particularly lovely. My husband really enjoyed the sausages and the freshly squeezed orange juice was the icing on the cake.
Views from our bedroom were spectacular and it was lovely to watch the dog and new little pup play in the morning.

***** Note to guests travelling from Harrogate if you are using a SatNav; it will take you to Knabbs Grove. Drive a few meters further along the road and take the very next turning!!
Can't rate this home from home highly enough.
Thank you x

Room Tip: We had room 2, this room has wonderful 180 degree views and a seriously excellent bed.

Had a lovely time on our recent visit to Yorkshire. Knabbs Ash is perfectly situated to some of the best parts Yorkshire has to offer like Knaresborough, York, Harrogate and Skipton etc.

Knabbs Ash is a super clean and very well furnished with everything needed for a really comfortable stay. We found the bed very comfortable and the breakfasts are great with proper man size full English portions :-)

Set off the road the B&B is very quite with great views from room 2 and with a couple of very nice local pubs evening meals are easy to sort out.

10 out of 10 for Knabbs Ash and wouldn't hesitate in recommending this lovely B&B in the heart of Yorkshire. We would definitely stay again next time we are oop north.

Thank you Sheila for making us feel very welcome.

This is a truly excellent b&b. The welcome is warm, the rooms are furnished to a high standard with every convenience and thoughtful touch we could think of and the breakfast was delicious. The bed linen, towels and toiletries are very good quality which ensures comfort and a feeling of being well looked after. Sheila has clearly put a lot of thought into every detail and it shows. We enjoyed 2 peaceful, comfortable nights and would definitely return, I didn’t want to leave actually!

If you're looking for a place to stay that makes you feel at home then this is the place! From the offer of tea and cake on arrival to the chocolates and maderia in the room, this place is heavenly! There are slippers and bathrobes, fresh fruit and the best cooked breakfast, the attention to detail is lovely. We had room 2 and the bath was bath sized, not one of those ankle deep can just about sit in it types you normally get! Overall I can't recommend this place enough, one of the best we've stayed in.

What a super b+b, first class. We had a lovely stay at Knabbs Ash. On arrival we were met by our friendly host Sheila. After showing us to our room she gave us a most welcome cut of tea in the residents lounge. We had a lovely room at the rear of the property which had super views of the countryside.The facilities were excellent, there were things we didn't expect to find but were added bonus. - torch, first aid kit and sewing kit. The bedding was pretty but not over fussy, with crisp cotton sheets and fluffy white towels.The toiletries were of good quality and the tea making tray and biscuits was well stocked and replenished daily. Breakfast was good - something for everyone. There was fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurts and or cooked breakfast all served in a warm and sun filled pretty dining room.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends.
Thank you.
