“Wonderful surprise”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We booked this venue because of the close proximity to Allerton Castle and were delighted when we drew up outside the Homestead. It is a lovely house in beautiful gardens, surrounded by open countryside.
The room was double aspect, light and clean, it had a comfy bed and everything you might possibly need, including things you may have forgotten.
The en-suite bathroom was attractive and roomy with a huge pile of towels and many toiletries. Pauline had thought of everything.
Pauline was the perfect host attending to our every needs, including a lift to and from the wedding at Allerton Castle.
The breakfast was plentiful, varied and delicious.
I can't recommend this place enough and look forward to an excuse to stay there again.

We stayed at this B and B whilst attending a party at a nearby village. Pauline put us up at last minute when a nearby pub over booked us. I think we were lucky as we were totally looked after. The room, particularly the bed, was extremely comfortable and there was everything you could wish for. The breakfast was delicious, fresh and tasty. And Pauline was good enough to give us a lift to our party and back again which we were very grateful for. Would certainly recommend this B and B as a place to stay, excellent and thank you.

Pauline has a lovely home and so pleased she is prepared to share it! We took all 3 rooms for 2 nights and it was certainly a home from home. I asked for information about local churches and was driven to a service. Never had such wonderful and varied breakfasts at a B&B and we have stayed in hundreds. Can't wait for an excuse to go again.

We have just returned from a wonderful night's stay at The Homestead, Knaresbrough.
We were attending a wedding at Allerton Castle, and Pauline the proprietor was extremely friendly. She also kindly gave us a lift to the wedding, and picked us up again afterwards.

We slept in the bedroom looking out onto the fields which was lovely - the bed was ever so comfortable.

And breakfast...delicious! Set us well on our way to get the next wedding we were heading for.

We would highly recommend this wonderful B&B :)

We have just stayed at this B&B as we were attending a wedding at the nearby Allerton Castle. We wanted somewhere closeby so that we didn't have to worry about travelling too far after the event. We dropped on this by accident when we drove around the area and it is literally 5 minutes drive away. When I contacted Pauline to enquire about a room she told me that she would collect us from the Castle so that we could enjoy the event and we didn't have to worry about a Taxi. The room was standard but she does have an En Suite Room and as she only has 3 rooms it isn't such a hardship walking to the bathroom and after all it is only for 1 night. The bed was very comfortable and it does feel as though you are at home or staying with a friend. The breakfast was excellent with everything you could wish for and extra if you wanted more.

I was so pleased that we found this property and would recommend it to anyone attending an event at the Castle.
