The North Yorkshire spa town of Harrogate has been voted the ‘happiest place to live’ in the UK for the third year running making it a very desirable place to call home.

The picturesque town centre – a versatile mix of historical architecture and facilities for modern life -  is a delightful juxtaposition of independent retailers, delightful cafes and restaurants and wonderful places to explore and enjoy.

Renowned for many things, Harrogate is also home to the Turkish Baths and Health Spa first opened in 1896, and was frequented by European High Society, and has now enjoyed a million pound renovation resurgence programme in 2004 to restore it to its former glory. It is one of only seven Turkish baths dating from the 19th century which remain open in the world today.

Harrogate is also famous for its tea and Taylors of Harrogate manufactures one of the most iconic tea brands in the world – Yorkshire Tea and, the town is also famous for Betty’s tearooms which can be found in York and at RHS Harlow Carr Gardens too which are just minutes drive from the centre of Harrogate.

On its doorstep are also some of the most visited attractions in Yorkshire – Ripley Castle, Fountains Abbey, Brimham Rocks and the town of Knaresborough  - famous for Mother Shipton who prophesied about modern day events. Furthermore, it is ideally situated for exploring the Yorkshire Dales and its delights.

It is a busy town with residents and day visitors alike enjoying the facilities that modern day life demands. It houses a selection of high quality, primary and secondary schools and the town’s college partners with leading Universities to offer 18+ education.

Situated close to a host of ‘A’ roads, the wider commuter network can be easily reached as can the nearby towns and cities of Leeds and York and with their renowned visitor attractions.

As the ‘Happiest Place to Live’ in the UK demand for homes is expected to remain high.

Chene Hall is the third Harrogate based development that Miller Homes has constructed in the last two years and offers a selection of four and five bedroom executive homes. It is located just a few minutes’ drive from the entre of town – homes are currently priced from £420,000.
