Eating out in Harrogate

Our favourite restaurant is by far the Konak Meze. The food there is exquisite! It has been open just over 4 years and has become enormously popular so if you’re planning on dining there on a Friday or Saturday evening, book early!

Harrogate Illuminations!

If you’ve never visited Harrogate during the winter months, then you ought to! At night, the trees surrounding the Stray are illuminated with dozens of coloured lights which look fabulous and create a quite magical atmosphere. It’s not Blackpool, but very tasteful! Harrogate really is an oasis and if you haven’t already been then add ...

Guest Reviews

At the time of writing April House has 183 reviews on Tripadvisor: 160 of which are classed as excellent, 21 very good and 2 average, yet we are ranked only 24th of B&Bs in Harrogate – very puzzling!
