Dray and Shire Cottages in The Stables at The Royal Oak

Hidden away in the secluded, award-winning cobbled courtyard of the historic Royal Oak in the oldest part of Knaresborough, Shire and Dray Cottages offer surprising privacy whilst being just minutes away from the major attractions of Knaresborough, Harrogate and surrounding areas.

Equipped to an exceptionally high standard, the Stables have enjoyed very high occupancy rates and gained rave reviews from guests. An ideal location for the Yorkshire Showground, the Pavilions and Harrogate International Centre with buses running every 7 minutes and a regular train service.

Dray Cottage sleeps 4 people and Shire can sleep 6 (or 8 if using the sofa bed) but they have added bonus of being accessible as one unit for larger groups. The cottages are separated by a (lockable!) door adjoining the two cottages.
