My name is Karen and I own Commerce Cottages. I started this cottage as a holiday cottage a few years ago. I also have another cottage in Clifford, near Wetherby, that sleeps 4. The rest of the time I am a beauty therapist working in my own salon in Easingwold - Karen Elizabeth Beauty. I am closely involved in the upkeep and cleaning of my cottages to ensure that everything remains to a high standard.

I bought this cottage as I love the village, Killinghall. It is so accessible to everywhere; Harrogate, Knaresborough, Ripley, Ripon, Leeds and York. It is a great location for the Great Yorkshire Showground and it's year round events, the Conference Centre, as well as being on hand for the many events held at Ripley Castle.

Commerce Cottage is a stunning cottage sleeping 6 in three bedrooms. The nearby village offers pubs for eating and it's very own fish and chip shop! A short trip into the village of Ripley brings you to an array of shops with everything you need for your stay including groceries, cafes, restaurants, an ice-cream store, local butchers and a delicatessen.

There cottage is well served by an excellent bus service from the village into Harrogate. Its location makes it an ideal base for exploring all that the area has to offer as it is close to many major Yorkshire attractions, as well as the motorway network should you wish to travel further afield.
