Knaresborough is full of surprises, a warren of medieval streets and stone staircases that weave their way up and down the hill.  The town centre is perched on the cliffs above the River Nidd and the imposing railway viaduct across the Nidd Gorge offers an amazing view to visitors as they arrive by train

Fishing

The River Swale runs through Burton Grange farm and guests are welcome to while away the hours enjoying the superb fishing. The river is within walking distance of the accommodation and is also accessible by 4WD vehicles. The Swale is home to large numbers of Barbel and Chub. An average sized fish for these rivers is 4lb-5lb with a specimen being anything above 7lb, however a 16-pounder has been banked several times from the Swale, a truly massive fish that hints at the potential of the river.
