Feature Locations: Knaresborough Removals

Written by on January 11, 2017


Feature Locations by McCarthy’s moves into North Yorkshire looking at the historic and popular town of Knaresborough which is the equally as impressive neighbour to the spa town of Harrogate.

Moving to Knaresborough

Knaresborough has kept its values as a picturesque market town which has enhanced its appeal as a place to live. Knaresborough’s charm is unrivalled and the closure of the Co-operative supermarket means that there is no mainstream supermarket in the town centre. This means that around the Market Place is full of independent shops, pubs and restaurants which really adds to Knaresborough’s appeal. The St James retail park on the outskirts of the town provides access to some of the more mainstream high street chains.

Leisure & Attractions if Moving to Knaresborough

Knaresborough is one of the most loved areas for tourism in Yorkshire and the north of England. The view over the River Nidd from Knaresborough castle is one of the admired in the country and the rentable rowing boats provide a chance to be a part of the this scenic landscape. The castle itself is full of history and attracts a lot of visitors.

One of the most well-known landmarks however is Mother Shipton’s Cave which is the site of myth, legend as well as natural wonder. The story of Mother Shipton attracts many visitors each year as does the Petrifying Well on the same grounds which first opened to public in 1630. If an object is placed into the well and left for a period of time then the object develops a stony exterior.

I stored my belongings in this space for one year, and it was absolutely pleasant experience. The staff is extremely professional and helpful, and they take time to understand the requirements of the client.
Even after not visiting my locker for one year, the storage is in excellent condition even after getting it back. I would recommend this to anyone. Really good experience!

Everything was just easy and straight forward. I've used other self storage places in the past but this was just so much better. The manager Sarah was great and really friendly. I would definitely recommend this company and will be using them again next year!!!

Jodie was fantastic and getting the storage booked was really easy. The unit was perfect for what I needed to store over the summer.
