Harrogate is a Victorian spa town and rural district that contains the medieval city of Ripon, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and four charming but very different market towns; Boroughbridge, Knaresborough, Masham and Pateley Bridge.
Set in the heart of Yorkshire this beautiful town is the perfect place for downsizers, investors and families to find their dream home with a wide range of amenities on your doorstep. From convenient and cosmopolitan townhouses and apartments to grand houses and even remote and idyllic country cottages.
With plenty of outdoor space surrounding the town, known as The Stray and The Valley Gardens and the Yorkshire Dales on the doorstep there is plenty of scope for adventure activities, from mountain biking to rock climbing and abseiling, annual events or just a bracing walk across the fells.
For the more metropolitan, the reputation of Harrogate’s shopping streets for exquisite retail opportunities is well deserved and the spa heritage is evident to this day, with spa treatments new and old available at the Turkish Baths or the newly built Rudding Park Spa.
Yorkshire prides itself on its food and drink, and Harrogate District flies this flag with pride, from its own gin, to the delicious local produce available across the town. As well as familiar names you will find independent restaurants, such as Stuzzi, or traditional café restaurants, such as the famous Bettys Tea Rooms, all offering carefully prepared ingredients served to please the eye as well as the appetite.
