Welcome to the Rudding Estate, home to a range of commercial office lets and houses for rent near Harrogate. The Rudding Estate was purchased by the Mackaness family in the early 1970’s and is now owned and run by Mark & Jan Mackaness. Set in 1300 acres of wonderful Yorkshire countryside, the estate wraps around pretty Follifoot village and is close to the spa town of Harrogate. The majority of the land is still farmed but traditional farm and estate properties have become desirable homes for rent, luxury apartments and commercial business parks, with offices to let. With space to live and work, the homes for rent on the Rudding Estate are pet friendly and the offices to let offer countryside views, fresh air and ample parking whilst being close to major transport routes to Harrogate, Leeds and the A1(M).
Within the Rudding Estate, situated just outside Harrogate, homes for rent are located all around the estate and are a mixture of the traditional and the very new. From two and three bedroom homes, country cottages and luxury apartments to award–winning five bedroom family houses, all have gardens, private parking and offer pet friendly accommodation.
The homes for rent and offices to let are let by estate agents Feather, Smailes & Scales but managed by the estate and are serviced and maintained to a very high standard. The original gatehouses to Rudding Park, now part of the estate, are also homes for rent, and behind the listed gates lay luxury apartments, offering deceptively spacious ground floor accommodation at the very heart of Follifoot village.
Haggs Farm and Spa Bottom Farm are now Business Parks with a difference. Traditionally stone built farm buildings, with names such as The Mill, The Byre and Tithe Barn, are now modern offices to let which have hi-speed broadband, solar powered energy and stress free parking for Harrogate businesses, their staff and clients. The fresh air and countryside views are complimentary and belie the fact that major transport routes are so close. Companies on the estate offer a wide variety of services to individual markets and each other and the Rudding Estate works closely with many of them. To check current availability, see our letting agents Feather Smailes & Scales.
Farming is still very important to the Rudding Estate and the arable fields are sown annually with wheat, barley and oil seed rape. The grassland is grazed by sheep or cattle and the woodland managed for timber and wildlife, all providing an ever changing Yorkshire landscape for residents and businesses on the estate.
We hope this welcome to the Rudding Estate has explained what it is, 1300 very special acres in which to live or work near Harrogate.
