  • We’ve been to Knaresborough lots of times but never actually realised the cave was here. When we spotted it on the map we decided to take a stroll down Abbey Road to find it. There is some beautiful s...  more »

  • This is not a grand place to visit, but the cave in which St Robert lived is there and there are information boards telling his story. It is easy to imagine what it was like when he was there and the setting itself helps to recreate that atmosphere. For a detour of just a few paces, it is a very interesting place to see.
  • Great little place to immerse yourself into the life of a hermit. Beautiful setting lots of people just walk past without having a look. Their loss. Go, hi right now. You really should.
  • Always a nice walk down Abby road to Saint Roberts cave lovely little place
  • Easily accessible for those comfortable climbing steps, helpfully informative, and beautifully tranquil beside a secret stretch of the Nidd. For a quiet moment fifteen metres from the road (a sleepy, residential one), this place takes some beating.
  • Nice little local visit for some knowledge of the town
