“A warm welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

Bailey Motte cottage is a lovely little B & B, with the added bonus of having a lounge area as well as a warm and cozy bedroom and fabulous bathroom. Lynn and Andy are very friendly and have provided everything that you might need to enjoy your time there. It is ideally situated to explore Knaresborough and the surrounding areas. Breakfast was fantastic and set us up for the day.

We are so glad we found Bailey Motte Cottage through TripAdvisor.
Andy and Lynn are the perfect hosts; providing wonderful accommodation for just 2 guests on the whole top floor of their beautiful cottage......a comfy lounge with TV and HiFi, a delightful bedroom, a large bathroom and a separate shower. There's no way it could be improved! Breakfasts are top quality and I definitely recommend the smoked salmon bagel!
The view of the cottage and the fabulous garden are a lovely surprise as you turn the corner into their property.
Knaresborough is a picturesque and fascinating town.....we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Just 2 guests at a time ...its very exclusive!

After deciding to visit Knaresborough we spent some time searching for the perfect b&b and Bailey Motte Cottage stood out a mile so we booked to stay for a weekend. What a fabulous decision that was!
From the second we arrived Andy and Lynn who are the owners of this breathtakingly beautiful cottage made us feel so welcome. They showed us to our "room" which can only be described as an apartment, we had our own lounge with a wood burner, freeview tv, wi-fi, full stereo with record player and a selection of records and a giant comfortable sofa which is perfect for those Cosy nights.
The bedroom was very large with lots of windows all of which have beautiful views including the castle moat, there is a full length mirror and separate power shower at the end of a walk in wardrobe area. The bathroom has a corner spa bath more than big enough for two! ;-)

The location is perfect. Knaresborough has a lot more to offer than we initially realised.
Lynn's breakfast is exceptional and kept us full until tea time.
The little extras provided by Andy and Lynn put this place in a league of it's own and we cannot wait to return. The best b&b we have stayed in, fantastic value for money and a real home from home. If it's a romantic relaxing break you are looking for then you won't find better than Bailey Motte Cottage.

OK. First let me say that I did not stay at the Bailey Motte. I live in Knaresborough and we recently had some visitors from New Zealand who booked into the BM having found it on the Knaresborough website, the link to which I had forwarded to them. They stayed at the BM for 3 days and talked about it constantly. We went to look at it as it is always good to be able to recommend places to friends and relatives. We found it just as good as our friends had said, if not even better. It only takes 2 guests at a time so you have the whole of the top floor to yourselves, including a 3/4 size corner jacuzzi type bath. Fabulous lounge, large bedroom and separate shower too. All delightfully furnished yet retaining the old world charm. Apparently the breakfast is great too although I cannot vouch for that. A fabulous little place but probably not for those people that are unable to get about easliy on their legs, although the same can be said of Knaresborough in general. All in all a wonderful place to stay in a wonderful little town. I should know, I have lived here for almost 30 years.
