“No tears at Teardrop”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

Staying at Teardrop Cottage is not so much of a bed for the night as a way of life! It all starts with brilliant communications from Mike and helpful, accommodating supplements. Mike does everything. Because it is His house, it if furnished by Him to his tastes; I was impressed by the pictures.
The cottage sized bedroom was impeccably decorated and, of course, sparkling clean. The bed was comfortable and my wife and I slept well. There is a roof terrace which is a marvellous place to chill-out with a bottle of wine or a pot of tea; very nice.
Breakfast is outstanding; I would gladly propose it the best in Britain. An expansive selection of fresh fruit, freshly squeezed orange juice and a terrific main ‘English’, attractively presented and perfectly cooked.
We stayed two nights and enjoyed a couple of stimulating pre-breakfast strolls along the River Nidd and up to the castle ruins with its immaculate gardens.
I have posted some ‘photos of some nearby features, all within an easy stroll, but there is a need to negotiate some steps to reach the much rewarding castle.
Thanks Mike for a most enjoyable stay.

We stayed at Teardrop Cottage for three nights in the delightful town of Knaresborough. We were in the lovely luxury room with its own little courtyard. It was beautifully furnished and decorated with a wonderful comfy bed, luxury bathroom and great attention to detail throughout. The breakfast room was lovely with an excellent choice of food prepared by Mike who was attentive and friendly. Highly recommend!

So as indicated two firsts here...

1 - This is my is my first review on Tripadvisor. But really felt that I should after my stay at Teardrop Cottage.

2 - I know it sound terrible, but this was my first stay at a B&B.....So, I am truly delighted to say what a wonderful experience it was. Everything was perfect and really couldn't be bettered. Position was perfect, accommodation terrific, breakfast fantastic. Mike the owner was really helpful and went that "extra mile" that is so lacking in some larger establishments.

Teardrop Cottage - "More than Rock N' Roll" !

Lovely warm welcome on our return to Teardrop Cottage. It really is the most amazing place to stay. Mike the owner is so charming and helpful and obviously just wants you to enjoy your stay. We like the luxury room with its own courtyard. It's a lovely room with everything you would need along with some little treats, fresh flowers and free wifi. As we had a sunny evening the day we arrived we were able to enjoy a glass of wine on the roof terrace with fabulous views over the river, Mike kindly provided wine glasses. Teardrop Cottage is in a lovely position on the waterside and yet is only a few minutes away by bus to Harrogate, the buses run very regularly until late at night. We loved every minute of our stay and will be returning again hopefully in the not too distant future.

Room Tip: The luxury room is on the ground floor with patio doors on to the private courtyard.

We stayed at Teardrop Cottage for two nights, in the Chocolate Brown room. Mike, the owner is a charming host, who made us feel so welcome. Our room was small but very comfortable, with an outstanding view of the viaduct and riverside. We had access to the roof garden, which overlooks the riverside walk, and this was a real delight, especially as the weather was so warm. The cottage has loads of atmosphere and a timeless feel to it which made it very easy to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Breakfast was freshly cooked and delicious, and nothing was too much trouble. We couldn't have wished for a better place to stay, and will definitely return, hopefully later in the year.

Room Tip: The black and white suite has en suite bathroom, and its own private courtyard garden. It is also lo...

My wife and I had a wonderful time during our stay at the Teardrop Cottage in Knaresborough, Yorkshire. We stayed there for 5 nights last month (May-2013). This B&B is a comfortable cottage that is set on the hillside next to the Nidd River. The proprietor (Mike) made us feel very welcome and comfortable. His great sense of humor and easy-going nature made our breakfasts at this B&B a lot of fun. The breakfasts that Mike prepared for us each day were very good and he was great about accommodating our special vegetarian dietary needs. Our bedroom had a beautiful view over the river and the train trestle and the bathroom facilities were clean and well maintained. We would highly recommend a stay at the Teardrop Cottage for anyone that is planning to visit the Harrogate / York area.

This was our last stop on our tour of Yorkshire & was by far the best lodging we experienced. We arrived a little early, but Mike, the owner seemed genuinely pleased to see us, even though the place was fully booked.
The room was beautifully decorated and the bed comfy and soft, with a great view of the river and 19th century railway bridge.
We were really made to feel like valued guests, with access to the lovely living room and kitchen. Mike pretty much left us alone, but was a mind of local information when we needed him.
The breakfast (which Mike was happy to prepare at 10am!!) was a work of art, with fresh local ingredients. Best sausages in Britain :) We'll be back...

Room Tip: We had The Pink Room - great view...
