Latest reviews | Events in Harewood | 10 Places to Stay

Pronunciation first: it used to be spelled Harwood, and it is posher (and probably correct) to pronounce it thus, but most people say Hare-wood. The choice is yours. Harewood sits on the A61 between the vibrant city of Leeds, booming commercially and culturally, and the genteel spa of Harrogate with its strange contrast of little tea shoppes and smart stores side-by-side with the giant conference centre. The village provides a good base for visiting (or doing business in) both places, but of course has a spectacular attraction of its own in Harewood House. One of the great English stately homes, Harewood House is still in the hands of the Lascelles, the family that built it in the mid-18th century. It is salutary to remember that the construction of this most elegant of homes was paid for back then with money earned from slavery in the West Indies. Harewood’s place high in the pantheon of English country houses is not surprising when the names of those who contributed to it are considered: Robert Adam was one of the designers; Capability Brown did the park; much of the furniture was by local-boy-made- good Thomas Chippendale (he came from nearby Otley); and in the 19th century Charles Barry, architect of the Houses of Parliament, added a grand terrace and made changes to the façade, making it still more impressive. There are attractions within this attraction too: for those wanting to see one sort of star there is the Yorkshire Planetarium in the grounds; for the more earthbound the outdoor set of soap opera Emmerdale is found in another corner of the estate; and for those who like to see others trying to get nearer the skies in the shortest possible time there is the Harewood Hillclimb here too.
