A Weekend Escape | Baytree House, Harrogate



We set off Friday morning for a long weekend in Harrogate for my Birthday and a bit of R & R.  After what seemed like an eternity, we pulled up at the stunning Baytree House, a strikingly beautiful B&B situated on the corner of a picturesque street. Our home for the weekend.


If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have gathered that I'm home décor obsessed. Baytree House did not disappoint! You arrive through a pretty floral front garden, which leads up to the beautiful porch. The pale grey door and chandelier entrance are captivating. I already knew I was going to love it here before we made it through the second door!




We were led up to the second floor and shown to our room, number 10. It was bright, spacious and inviting. We had a huge sleigh bed, and a little snug single bed! A perfect corner for a coffee and a good book!






The bathroom was exquisite, with gorgeous tiles and a generous sized shower, it was everything you could want. I particularly loved the little extra touches; the mini shampoo & shower gels, as well as the shoe bag on the door. It's the little things that make a place so much more homely.


After returning back to the B&B from our first day of exploring, we dove straight into our big comfy bed, and fell into a peaceful slumber, almost immediately!


Morning came all too soon, but breakfast was on the cards, and we were excited to see what there was on offer. Plus, I had spied the pretty dining room when we first arrived, and couldn't wait to have a proper nosey around it!




The dining room is so homely and is very country chic in design, with little ornamental hens dotted around, and flowers on the tables.


There was a wide choice for the continental breakfast which included; home baked bread, fresh fruit, yogurt and a good selection of cereals. There was also a cooked breakfast option, which had so much variety to choose from too. There was; eggs benedict, a full Yorkshire breakfast (which also had a vegetarian option!), porridge and more!


We opted for the Yorkshire breakfast and Porridge with Honey, and it was delicious! Also how cute is that honey pot!










 We were very impressed, it was super filling and delicious. A good hearty way to set us up for another day of exploring.


  Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Baytree House, and I would definitely go back again. The location is perfect, as you can just walk straight into Harrogate centre, where all the bars and restaurants are. The owners are brilliant, they made us feel comfortable and welcome from the moment we arrived, and most importantly the room was perfect.


  We had the best relaxing stay, which was much needed amid the hectic wedding planning we have going on right now - as well as home renovations! Life is all go, and a break was just what the doctor ordered, we feel re-charged and ready to carry on!
