If you are thinking of passing through Knaresborough in Yorkshire, DON'T. Go and stay there instead!
The Newton House (tele: 01423 863599) is run by friendly people and is a lovely place to stay with great facilities and an amazing breakfast menu. I'm not easily amazed at breakfast, believe me.
La Bella Sicilia is a Restaurant in the market Square - Castlegate. tele:01423 869918 to book. What's not to like? But their lemon icecream flute with Italian Lemon Liquer is for the tart at heart like me.
The town itself offers splendid walks and spectacular views and is close to so many other places of interest. Go there!
