About Emma Summersgill

My husband Tim and I have lived in North Yorkshire for most of our lives. The Cottage is in the grounds of our house so we will usually be on hand to offer as much or little assistance as you require

With 2 children aged 5 and 3 we moved here for them to experience village life yet be near enough to the towns and attractions we also enjoy experiencing.

Kind regards, Emma

Emma Summersgill purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Emma Summersgill chose Knaresborough

Staveley is nearer our friends, families and places we enjoy visiting. Minutes from the A1 yet overlooking open fields and hearing birds singing makes this our perfect location.

What makes this cottage unique

So many of the most beautiful attractions in Yorkshire are within a 30 minute drive of this property, no need to spend all day in the car finding places to enjoy

Lovely place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything we required, clean and in a quiet and private setting. The cottage is very handy for Harrogate, York and the surrounding county. It is lovely to come back to in the evenings where you can relax in the garden. We really enjoyed our stay and if we are ever in the area again, we will certainly hope the cottage is available

Cosy and homely.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and location was perfect for a holiday. So much to see within a small radius - Fountains Abbey, Knaresborough, Ripon and Harrogate. Owners were friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone who wants a holiday in the countryside but also lots of places to visit and walk round within a short drive. Love to return in the future.

Cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

We spent 6 very comfortable nights in this cosy cottage ,everything we needed was catered for

Situated in the owners lovely garden it was very peaceful and in a well positioned situation.Very handy for York and Harrogate and our particular favourite North Yorkshire Moors.We especially enjoyed Helmsley and Goathland.Our only quibble would be that the lighting was quite dull and did not lend itself very well to reading in the evening.

We had lovely meals at The Ship and The Blue Bell and would certainly stay in this cottage again.

Cosy, well equipped, good location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent days in Knaresborough and Harrogate and a night in the local pub at Staveley which did lovely food. We weren't so lucky with the weather but it didn't stop us enjoying ourselves.

Nice property but dark interior

  • 3 of 5

We did enjoy our stay (7 days) and the cottage was well equipped. Our only criticism was that the interior was dark and it being mid summer this was surprising. We found that if we returned a little earlier from a day out (4 -5pm) and the weather was not warm enough to sit outside then the best place to relax was in the bedroom, a beautifully light space having big windows on two aspects.

In the lounge we moved the little table to underneath a window which helped when enjoying breakfast or a meal as this was a nice view of the garden below.

Unfortunately I am not sure how the dark space could be overcome without major alteration (further velux window? All glass front door?).

Having said all this it was a nice self contained space in a very peaceful area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback I'm glad to be made aware you found the sitting area dark as this has never been mentioned by any previous guests. May I take this opportunity to say to any future guests that the seating area has 8 spot lights and a table lamp and if anyone finds the area dark please let me know and I will provide additional lighting. I'm glad you liked the cottage and this was your only negative point.
