Fairy-tale castle in Harrogate up for sale for the first time in 100 years

This magnificent fairy-tale castle, set within its own enchanted wood, has hit the open market for the first time in more than 100 years.

Grade II Knox Hall in leafy Harrogate, North Yorkshire, is a stunning four-bedroom property dating back almost two centuries.

It boasts majestic cylindrical wings at either side and large, beautifully crafted arch windows offering far-reaching views of the Yorkshire Dales.

The handsome residence, which has been put on the market for £875,000, is also set in four acres of woodland at the back of the plot.

Knox Hall was built in about 1850 in the ‘cottage orné’ architectural style, which means ‘decorated cottage’.

Such homes were built to make a good first impression and were usually elevated to provide a clear view of the building against a wooded backdrop.



Knox Hall is understood to have been built by the owner of a nearby mill which was dated about a century earlier.

The property was purchased by its current owners, who are in their 70s, in the mid-1990s and has been offered for sale so they can downsize.

It’s being marketed by Harrogate estate agent Beadnall Copley.

The property has been restored and enlarged under the guidance of Listed Buildings Control, due to its listed status.

It has a grand entrance hall leading to a sun room that opens on to a raised terrace with views of the Nidderdale Valley.

The ground floor is centred around an impressive 22ft drawing room. There is also a formal dining room, kitchen, utility room, study and cloakroom.

On the first floor are four bedrooms including a master suite with en-suite and dressing room.

Knox Hall’s gardens feature raised beds, terraced seating areas and a pond.
