"One of my favourite things about Harrogate in North Yorkshire is how lucky we are to have such gorgeous quiet countryside and nearby walks to enjoy.  
Thankfully for me being a resident of Harrogate I don't need to #EscapeTheEveryday that often, as I have the best of both lives living here with a cosmopolitan town life and a protected Area of National Beauty so closeby. I feel very lucky." Jessica - Guest Relations, Sales and Marketing Manager 
#EscapeTheEveryday Harrogate North yorkshire Take A UK break this Autumn
If you want to go for a walk close to the centre of Harrogate, then you have several options. Perhaps a gentle stroll around the Harrogate Stray or through Valley Gardens and up into Pine Woods, before stopping off at Harlow Carr RHS Gardens and another Betty's Cafe Tea Rooms that appear off the beaten track. A timely appearance for a stop off to recharge with cup of tea or coffee and slice of cake. Maybe even try one of Betty's notorious "Fat Rascals" which are plump, fruity scones hand-decorated with a cheeky glacΓ© cherry and given a face made of almonds. This naughty but nice Yorkshire scone is a firm favourite and one of Betty's most popular products made using their special fat rascal recipe. 
If you want to go on a walk a little more off the beaten track, then you could wander into the nearby woodland of Nidd Gorge, which links Knaresborough, Starbeck and Ripley with High Harrogate at a sort of footpath crossroad, down the bottom of Bilton Lane. It's a lovely track to walk, run or cycle on, which is also pram friendly. It's not so pram friendly if you decide to turn off down to walk alongside the river though. We recommend you wear a good pair of walking boots or even wellies, depending on the time of year if you're planning to walk by the river.  
It is absolutely stunning and a wonderful place to enjoy some peace and quiet. If you rise early and are very quiet, you may even see Otters playing by the river, Deer in the fields, Badgers in the woods and all kinds of birds of prey etc. Keep your eyes pealed.  
Or if you are in the mood for a more challenging walk in Harrogate, that is quite a challenge and will likely take ALL DAY, then perhaps you fancy walking the Harrogate Ringway which is another fantastic walk but we warn you, it is a 20 mile circular walk around Harrogate so you will need the appropriate footwear. Then of course you need to follow this with a replenishing nibble and tipple in one of the many country style pubs, swanky bars and eclectic choice of restaurants Harrogate and surrounding area offers you which are still open for business and adhering to Covid-19 Government guidelines to keep you safe. 
The AONB, area of outstanding national beauty nearby is Nidderdale just a short drive away from Harrogate town centre. With so many wonderful walks to enjoy there it is truly a very special place.
