Set in over 5 acres of private gardens, The Old Swan hotel in Harrogate was once the famous retreat of Agatha Christie. Originally an 18th-century coaching inn, The Old Swan features en suite rooms with tea and coffee making facilities, a TV and trouser press. Some rooms have stand-alone baths and garden views. The traditional Swan Lounge and Bar offers a selection of beverages and afternoon teas, while the Wedgewood and Library restaurants serve fresh, locally sourced dishes. The hotel offers free on-site parking and is within 10 minutesí walk of many attractions and the train station.
