Urban Boutique Apartment is a luxurious holiday home close to the fashionable heart of Harrogate. It's 2,000 square feet of style and comfort, sleeping ten people in four bedrooms with an outdoor terrace, and lots of space to socialise and spend time with family and friends. You're a mere moments away from bars, restaurants, galleries and boutiques, and within easy reach of the spectacular countryside, which makes Yorkshire a fantastic year-round holiday destination.
Harrogate has been an upmarket spa town since the late 1500s when they discovered the health benefits of the local spring waters. However, like the most fashionable spa towns, the Georgians and Victorians transformed it into the elegant town you see today. Learn more about its past at the Royal Pump Room Museum and the former Promenade Room, now the Mercer Art Gallery with an impressive fine art collection. Other Harrogate attractions include the scenic 200-acre parkland known as the Stray after the practice of allowing animals to graze there in the late-1700s. Pack a gourmet picnic and head a few miles out of town to picturesque Plumpton Rocks, or admire the magnificence of the house, gardens and collections of Harewood House.
Staying in Harrogate means you can combine the urban delights of towns and cities with the rural bliss of the Yorkshire countryside. A favourite walk goes between Fountains Abbey and Markenfield Hall, but with the Yorkshire Dales National Park so close, you have a vast natural playground only a few miles away. Scar House Reservoir, the Crimple Valley Viaduct, and Fewston Reservoir are other great choices for a day out. You can explore Ripon, Masham and Knaresborough. Leeds is only half an hour away, while the ancient city of York is not much further. Depending on your preference, it's entirely possible to alternate days of culture, shopping and sightseeing with hiking, horseriding, golf, and mountain biking.
Urban Boutique Apartment is available for holiday bookings all year round, with short breaks possible depending on availability.
