Our guide Nick took us to Rievaulx Abbey which was stunning and also to the medieval village of Crayke with a nice lunch at Beadlam Grange Farm. He was extremely knowledgable about the entire area, it’s geography, economy and especially it’s history, and he could tell us in detail everything about the Abbey from the it’s medieval founding to its dissolution under Henry VIII. I would highly recommend visiting Rievaulx Abbey with Nick, a magical and highly informative experience.

Calvin. Meg, I'm delighted you so enjoyed your "taste" of Yorkshire and were able to Breath in Yorkshire for the short time we had together. I have to say with someone as yourself; studying History in London at university; your own depth and breadth of both knowledge and understanding was "brilliant" also ! So pleased you enjoyed your Yorkshire goody bag; and your father and brother may be envious of too. So kind of you with your positive feedback and that my restaurant list, map of York and recommendations was so useful too. You were a delight to host with your mum. Warmest regards, Nick.

Spent a memorable day with Nick in the countryside outside York. His historical knowledge was superb and brought everything alive with stories and anecdotes. Highly recommended!

Nick gave us a property-hunting familiarisation tour of Harrogate and surrounding villages - so helpful, he filled in many gaps in our knowledge of the area and left us better prepared to make our decisions. We felt in such safe hands. He has taken Covid safety protocols fully on board, the vehicle is large enough that we are 2m distant from him as the driver, and everything is clean, airy and sanitised. We felt safer in his Mercedes than we did on the train. Besides this, Nick is a lovely man and he judges just right the amount of information to give you at any one time. Add to this the fact that he is an excellent driver, has worked for the ambulance service and been in the army - what more could you want in a guide!? You can trust him.

Thank you both for putting your faith and trust in me to "show you the villages"around Harrogate to "whet" your appetites for your home move from Hampstead Heath London, to Yorkshire. The weather was kind to you also; which I pre-booked to help your search day! I believe you now have a great feeling of the local areas and potential new homes for your property search. Thanks for helping other potential clients "on the move" to Yorkshire with this informative review. Looking forward to helping you both "Breathe In Yorkshire" after your re-location. Thank you, Nick.

We travelled to Harrogate by train so this excursion was brilliant for us to see Harrogate and other parts of beautiful Yorkshire. Nick picked us up from our apartment and from the start we felt at ease and COVID safe. We enjoyed every part of our tour. Nick is a blue badge holder, extremely knowledgeable and could answer any questions we had. We travelled from Harrogate to Ripley (stunning), to Rippon and a tour around the beautiful Cathedral. We stopped for lunch at the Fountaine Inn (highly recommended). Honestly, this tour is a must! From limestone to lead and the strange white domes ... we loved it all and found out so much about this part of Yorkshire. We highly recommend a tour with Nick and also thank him for his recommendation of The Harrogate Tea Room - best scone ever! And we visited the Valley Gardens in Harrogate to see the plaque mentioning Nick :)

How so kind of you; so pleased you both this, your first visit to Harrogate and enjoyed God's Own County. So pleased you found the memorial and plaque in the Valley Gardens too - rather special memories for me too. How kind and thank you . Hope to share Yorkshire with you again next year, warmest regards Nick

Once again Nick surpassed all our expectations - collecting us from the airport in timely manner well after midnight. He is always courteous and exceptionally helpful. He had sterilised his mercedes 6 seater with a full anti viral spray before collecting us in his fitted mask. We all had to use his hand gel before getting in. He even has a "visit England good to go" accreditation. What more could you ask for in these difficult times. Well done Nick! Until the next time Andy & Brigid Gough and family
