“Tears of joy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

We spent the last night of our honeymoon here, to break the journey from Northumberland back to Wirral. We were not disappointed. Great location next to the river with all amenities close by.
Teardrop really lived up to all the other great reviews on here. Room gorgeous, we stayed in the ground floor room which had its own patio, which again was lovely. Rooms squeaky clean, and décor fab.
We didn't make it up to the terrace, but in the summer that would have been utilised.
Great host Mike who made the B&B experience one to recommend.
Breakfast lovely.
Thanks again Mike

Just spent two days in Knaresborough , using the Teardrop Cottage as my base. Mike ( the host ) is helpful and meticulous . From the minute I walked in Mike couldn't do enough for me.
The cottage is right next to the viaduct, the views from the Chocolate room over the river are fantastic , there is a sun terrace which gives better views and must be great for entertaining in the summer. The rooms are spotless and separate bathroom ( Chocolate room bathroom ) is the same. The breakfast is amazing , the sausages' are to die for . I've stopped in most bed and breakfasts in Knaresborough and I must say this is the best breakfast I've ever tasted. Will be booking again very soon. The downstairs area is so well laid out and spotless, plenty to do if you don`t want to go out , books and games if needed. With a large tv and a dvd player...

Room Tip: The chocolate room has a big separate bathroom ,

We had a 2 day mid-week break at Teardrop Cottage and enjoyed it immensely. The accommodation is gorgeous - clean, comfortable, lovely atmosphere and great host. The position of the cottage is fantastic and the place is close to excellent places to eat and drink. As has been said, in many reviews, Mike (the host) is a very helpful and thoroughly pleasant guy who gives great information and makes your stay such an enjoyable one. His breakfasts are the stuff of legend - top quality food and lots of it. Would not hesitate to go back there. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in the luxury en suite, so comfortable and beautifully furnished. A great location on the waterfront with lovely views and Mike is so accommodating with his knowledge of the area and recommendations for walks, days out and the best places to eat and drink. The breakfast is amazing!! We would highly recommend a visit and we will certainly be back in the near future.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Teardrop cottage...it was beautiful. Great location with lovely views of the river and viaduct. It was like being home from home. We had the luxury en suite room which was so comfortable and clean. Mike, the host, was most kind and friendly and cooks a fantastic breakfast. We would well recommend a stay at this B & B.

Couldn't have asked for more.Teardrop cottage is in a lovely location right on the riverside.Mike was super helpful and could not do enough to help. We stayed in the pink summer room which was beautiful with a small but more than adequate wet room en-suite.The room was absolutley spotless.Without a doubt the best breakfast we have ever experienced in a b&b!!Will be recommending to friends and family and will definitely visit again!
