The apartment is set down a quiet leafy suburb in the grand Victorian Spa town of Harrogate. Regularly listed as the best place to live in the UK, Harrogate is a truly gorgeous Yorkshire town which combines traditional elegance with contemporary style effortlessly. And the Duchy suburb is well known as being one of the most desirable postcodes in town.
The property is just a short and very pleasant 2-mile walk away from the centre of town. A walk that takes you down through the famous Valley Gardens, highly regarded for its stunning flower displays and beautiful landscapes.
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 Betty's Tearooms 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.
The apartment 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 breathtaking Nidderdale is 15 miles away and heading south-west you will be driving through some of the most dramatic Dales scenery. We highly recommend a day trip to gorgeous Ilkley (18 miles) combined with a visit to Bolton Abbey - all just a short drive away.
York is within easy reach (23 miles) and a day-trip to this beautiful medieval city is well worth it. So there is lots of choice, if you can drag yourself away from this beautiful apartment!
