Hello it’s been another glorious week and yes we have a NEW NAME – what do you think? Underneath I’m still all about ‘OUR STYLE of LOVE’ and it’s been a wonderful part of my journey but felt LIFESTYLE | YORKSHIRE was more the direction of the future and the name is a little more ‘does what it says on the tin’.
Throughout Summer, I was aware of so many people visiting RHS Harlow Carr… even my daughter went twice and without me! I was told it was awash with Summer flowers and would be an amazing place to go take photos let alone be such an enjoyment. Still I just never got there; summer passed…
One day last week, quite unexpectedly, having gone to meet my sister for another purpose, she said “do you fancy Harlow Carr?” and so with my two nephews in tow, we went on one of those gorgeously sunlit Autumn days that are so rare in their absolute perfection…. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!
Once the gardens had been explored, it was time to refuel at Bettys (how delighted was I they had a Bettys!) followed by a browse round the very well stocked and surprisingly large book and gift shop. This is the kind of place to take your time, to wander… to take in your surroundings.
Harlow Carr is a must-see if you are ever in the Harrogate vicinity. There is an entrance fee but if you can hook up with someone who has an RHS annual pass that’s the way to go! I look forward to returning in the Summer at the latest as I can imagine it will also be magical covered in frost and snow! You can visit their website here.
