My husband and I have just returned from an overnight stay with friends at Gallon House. What a pleasure it was to stay there! From the moment we arrived, Rick made us feel very welcome. We all felt so completely relaxed as we enjoyed drinks and nibbles in the conservatory, watching the last of the evening sun settle over the gorge. The house is beautiful, with stunning views from the rear. We all felt like we'd escaped from busy lives in this peaceful idyll. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated with a high standard of cleanliness. There were nice little touches such as complementary fluffy robes, and a sample of the local ale. Gallon House is perfectly located for exploring Knaresborough on foot, and has great access to the surrounding areas such as York and Harrogate. We ate at a local restaurant in the evening -Carriages- just a few hundred yards walk away which was perfect. After a restful night, we were served a delicious breakfast, all expertly cooked by Rick and warmly served by Sue, who is lovely. They are both such wonderful hosts. Whilst we only spent a night at Gallon House, we left feeling revived, intend to return again soon. Next time we plan to dine in the evening, and take the opportunity to further experience Rick's culinary skills for which he has an excellent and well deserved reputation. We would all recommend a stay at Gallon House without hesitation. You won't be disappointed.
The double room at the top of the house has stunning views over the gorge.
