For a comfortable stay you will find a comprehensive range of accommodation in Harrogate offering something for everyone, from convenient and cosmopolitan townhouses to remote and idyllic country cottages.

Caring for the state beds

Caring for the state beds

How do you look after fragile beds that are more than 300 years old? With considered care and attention to detail. 

Alana Bates, Collections Assistant, Beningbrough Hall, Gallery and Gardens knows all about it. Read her fascinating insights here.

As part of the conservation team we not only look after the fabric of the building but also the collection inside; even when rooms are closed. Each piece is unique and has their own management plan right down to the detail of what tools to use and how often. Here’s a peep behind closed doors and under the dust sheets.

New collaboration and funding protects heritage and landscape

Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is home to important landscapes, rich in heritage and wildlife. One of its jewels is Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden, the country’s largest monastic ruin, and a UNESCO world heritage site. Cared for by the National Trust, it routinely tops the top ten lists of Britain’s favourite historical attractions, thanks to its landscaped gardens, deer park, ancient oaks, follies and vistas in a spectacular setting by the River Skell.
