We live west of Harrogate in Birstwith. We moved here in the summer after only living in city centres. I wouldn't go back to a city now. The countryside is so beautiful and quiet (in a good way). It only takes us 10 minutes to get into the centre of Harrogate anyway. I feel like we've got the best of both worlds.
Wetherby is a proper town, not a village. Nice though.
sbt2 - I live in Pannal too but grew up in Bilton which I loved - it's on the other side of Harrogate and has the library (as long as they don't close it!), plenty of local shops etc and two primary schools.
If you are more of a towny have you considered the area round the Dragons in the town centre? We used to live there pre children and loved it, a walk into town, to the cinema, to the train station, to Asda etc! ONly downside was the odd pizza box chucked in your front garden on a Saturday night!
Can't comment on Wetherby, used to work near there but never lived there!
Thanks! Yes i drive, two children age 3 1/2 and 4 months. Price range £240mark so not rich lol. I am a towny i suppose, i like eating out, theatre, cinema, taking kids to clubs and baby classes. Would need a shop! Not churchy, friendly and easy going - sounds like a dating ad lol
Did go to spofforth and panna; which was nice but couldnt afford much there...
There are lots of nice villages around Harrogate. I live in Pannal which I love. Other villages I would consider are Follifoot, Spofforth, Beckwithshaw, North Rigton and Kirkby Overblow. Hope you find what you're looking for!
