Welcome to this comfy twin room.
The house is in the centre of the Spa town of Harrogate. We are just across the road, 1min. from both the Turkish Baths and the famous Betty’s café. The rooms are comfortable and quiet and there is a spacious bathroom on each floor.
For those of you who are exhibiting at the Conference Centre or performing at the Royal Hall they are at the bottom of the hill, 5 mins walk, or if you are performing at the Wesley Chapel it is 1 minute away. There is also a theatre, cinema, and numerous restaurants and bars within 5 minutes walk of the house.
Breakfast is usually a selection of seasonal fruits either fresh fruit salad or poached, with cereals and yoghurt, followed by scrambled egg and smoked salmon, poached egg and spinach, or boiled eggs, and then toast and marmalade, jam, marmite, or honey, really, lots to choose from!
First we are opposite Betty's, famous for delicious pastries and coffee or light meals, and then there are any number and a huge variety of restaurants within 5 minutes walk of the house. Dinner? In Harrogate? No problem!
There is a TV, radio, hairdryer, and tea and coffee in all the rooms or by arrangement, and use of an iron and ironing board if needed.
There is a lane by the house where you can load and unload and then parking for one car by the house. If you would like to come by train, the station is 10 minutes walk away.
Harrogate is in the middle of the Dales with glorious wild walks from hilltop villages like Middlesmoor, where, it is rumoured, Lytton Strachey once stayed at The Crown. If you prefer a more serene splendour there is the National Trust’s Fountains Abbey where you could walk to Studley Royal along the water-side and back along the wooded banks, and the Woodland Trust has restored Hackfall Wood, a must for those of a romantic frame of mind. If you love gardens, the RHS gardens at Harlow Carr are only an hour’s walk from the house. Harrogate’s famous Stray is across the road for a morning or an evening stroll.
Rachel is a lovely hostess, and me and my mother enjoyed our stay very much. Rachel prepared a very generous and tasty breakfast for us, and gave us tips and advice for us to make the most of our stay in Harrogate.
The house is beautifully decorated with art. The rooms are tidy and the beds comfortable, and the house is in the middle of the centre of the city - easy access to train station, restaurants and shops nearby.
Highly recommend Rachel's B&B :)!
Perfect place to stay right in the middle of Harrogate. Rachel is a great host who made sure our stay was enjoyable - her breakfast , including her home-made apple tarts each morning as well as the traditional full English breakfast sustained us all through the day. The ambience of her house with her interesting antique furniture & beautiful artwork on the walls plus the informative chats made us feel as if we were guests in her home. Thank you Rachel for making our stay so enjoyable.
