The Coun­try Liv­ing St Ge­orge Ho­tel, Har­ro­gate

Country Living (UK) - - A Month In The Country -

A stone’s throw from the bustling Mont­pel­lier Quar­ter and the Stray – 200 acres of grass­land, where cro­cuses flour­ish in the spring – this Ed­war­dian ho­tel, which opens this month, is an ele­gant re­treat in the heart of the town. As with the Lans­down, the rooms have been fur­nished in the Coun­try Liv­ing style by in­te­rior de­signer Oliver Redfern, so you can glean dec­o­rat­ing ideas and in­spi­ra­tion first hand. Af­ter a rest­ful night’s sleep, pay a visit to the Royal Pump Rooms for a glimpse back into Har­ro­gate’s af­flu­ent past or make the short trip to the RHS Gar­den Har­low Carr, to wan­der through wood­land and a wild-flower meadow be­fore recharg­ing at the on-site Bet­tys tea room. Come the evening, treat your­self to a meal at one of the town’s many award-win­ning restau­rants – Restau­rant 92 and The Fat Badger Grill come highly rec­om­mended. But if fin­ger sand­wiches and petit-fours are more your style, head back to the ho­tel for af­ter­noon tea. For those want­ing to ven­ture out into the coun­try­side, the York­shire Dales Na­tional Park and North York Moors (which fa­mously in­spired Emily Bronte’s Wuther­ing Heights) lie to the east and west of the town. Prices from £125 per night (coun­tryliv­ingho­tels.com). For more in­for­ma­tion and a spe­cial reader of­fer, see page 68.
