The grand Victorian spa town of Harrogate is regularly listed as the best place to live in the UK. The truly gorgeous Yorkshire town combines traditional elegance with contemporary style effortlessly. And the Duchy suburb is well known as being one of the most desirable postcodes in town.

Best known for its antiques and fine art, Harrogate has antique dealers and galleries around every corner, particularly around the Montpellier Quarter. If buying old paintings and furniture isn't your bag, there are a host of other reasons to part with your cash in Harrogate. High fashion outlets nestle alongside lavish interior boutiques, punctuated with enough fine restaurants and cafes to keep you fuelled for weeks.

A visit to Bettys tea room is a must and, if you have time, we highly recommend a session at the famous Turkish Baths. Rejuvenate spirit and soul after a day on the town. If you're travelling with children, Harrogate is famous for its outdoor space with lots of parkland and greenery everywhere. The RHS Gardens at Harlow Carr are also a fantastic option for families.

Harrogate is also very close to the Yorkshire Dales and North Yorkshire Moors so makes the perfect base from which to explore the glorious Yorkshire landscape and its many stunning natural sights. The breath-taking Nidderdale is 16.5 miles north of the property and heading south-west, you will be driving through some of the most dramatic Dales scenery. Guests, both young and old, may also like to visit other picturesque attractions such as RHS Harlow Carr (6 miles), the National Trust’s unique Brimham Rocks (13 miles) or Ripley Castle and Gardens (10 miles).

The ancient walled city of York is 29 miles away and well worth the journey as it has plenty to see and do, such as the National Railway Museum, the Jorvik Viking Centre, The Shambles (a labyrinth of cobbled streets packed with shops and eateries) and York Minster Cathedral.

Had a great week at this quaint old cottage. It was clean, cosy, and very peaceful. The outside terrace is lovely and a great spot for dining alfresco. The lawned area is on quite a slope and there are more steps down to it than we expected. Only a problem to us as our dog is old and unstable on his long legs making it very tiring for him.

The owners of this cottage have ensured that you have every comfort. It is so well decorated and very thoughtfully designed. Quiet and easy to get to. Beautiful garden with seating areas. A bottle of wine and shortcake biscuits welcomed us and even a bottle of milk in the fridge with coffee in the coffee tin. I would certainly stay in this cottage Read moreagain. Hide

Harrogate is a thriving, historic town at the heart of North Yorkshire and at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This fantastic town is a hit with culturists, historians and holidaymakers alike. Dubbed ‘The English Spa’ in 1596, the town boasts spa water high in iron, sulphur and salt. The Royal Pump Room is still open today as a museum, showcasing the original equipment that was used in its heyday. Two other major draws to the town are the Harrogate Convention Centre and the Great Yorkshire Showground. The former is a multi-purpose venue large enough to house huge conventions and business conferences. Many of the events are fan-based like the Lego-themed attractions and comic-cons. The latter is an outdoor venue that hosts even large events and shows, namely the agricultural Great Yorkshire Show.

Fancy a day of walking? Head to the Valley Gardens, home to a multitude of landscaped gardens that embrace different styles and influence. For further horticultural foray, head to the RHS Garden, Harlow Carr. The stunning gardens provide a leafy retreat where you can wander through woodland and alongside waterways.

The town centre is home to an array of boutique fashion shops, as well as high street favourites in and around the Victoria Shopping Centre.
