The historic market town of Knaresborough is one of the prettiest in Yorkshire. Renowned for its numerous attractions such as Mother Shipton’s Cave and 12th Century castle ruins, it’s a popular tourist destination. Steeped in history, close to one of Yorkshire’s most popular towns, bursting with excellent businesses and near to some of Yorkshire’s most beautiful scenery, Knaresborough is also a very desirable place to live.
We’ve been have a nosey at what’s currently on the market in Knaresborough and we came across this magnificent property. McKinnell Lodge is a 6 bedroom detached house with over 4,000 SQ FT of living space. Set in a private location with formal gardens and a large heated swimming pool, it’s the ultimate entertaining house!
