Find historic charm, beautiful scenery and modern living with a new home at Orchard Gardens
A stone’s throw from the centre of historic Knaresborough and with the best of Yorkshire within easy reach, Orchard Gardens could be your perfect place to call home.
Situated in the northern reaches of Knaresborough, a 15-minute walk from the market town’s attractive and bustling centre, Orchard Gardens is Persimmon’s stunning new development of two, three and four-bedroom homes. Perched on the cliffs above the River Nidd, three miles from the large spa town of Harrogate, Knaresborough has long attracted buyers and tourists alike for its beautiful town centre, many amenities, active community and scenic location.
The charming town centre offers a good range of shops for everyday needs or simply browsing. There's a weekly market, which has been taking place in the town square for over 500 years. There are several large supermarkets including an Aldi and Lidl or a range of major brands including M&S and Next at St James Retail Park, just a five-minute drive from the development. Harrogate is home to a fantastic range of high street and independent shops, as well as mouthwatering eateries including the famous Bettys Tea Room, while York and Leeds, both major shopping cities, are less than 20 miles away.
There are number of schools within walking distance of Orchard Gardens, including the ‘Outstanding’ Meadowside Academy 0.2 miles from the development, St Mary’s Catholic Primary School 0.7 miles away, and The Forest School, a special education school, 0.6 miles away. You’ll also find several good secondary schools spread between Knaresborough and neighbouring Harrogate, meaning all children are catered for here.
From a dose of culture to a peaceful hike, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors in and around Knaresborough. The town’s ancient Norman Castle overlooks the River Nidd and is now also home to a museum, while the fascinating Mother Shipton’s Cave has been a beloved attraction since the 1600s. You could take a stroll around the attractive riverside Bebra Gardens, go for a walk or jog around Jacob Smith Park, or explore the beautiful trails of Nidd Gorge. Then of course there are the stunning Yorkshire Dales including the Nidderdale AONB just a half-hour drive from the development.
Knaresborough is very well connected by road, with short routes to the market town of Wetherby, picturesque Harrogate, and a wealth of charming villages. York and Leeds are both easily accessible by road, while the A1 is just 4.4 miles away, leading up towards Newcastle and down to the Midlands. The area is served by a bus network, and Orchard Gardens is positioned within easy reach of Knaresborough train station, connecting you to much of Yorkshire and beyond. The nearest airport is Leeds Bradford International Airport, a half-hour drive away.
