Rohan Harrogate Team

Manager Linda has worked in the retail sector from she was 15 years old, but worked in the outdoors sector for over 15 years, grew up in a small farm environment, was always bringing home animals that were injured or lost, nursing them back to health and finding homes for them, loves being outdoors no matter what the weather is like, passionate for mountain biking and photography, always busy doing something from power-kiting to making polymer clay jewellery, watching marvel movies, very much into her technology, with bags of passion and knowledge of Rohan clothing.

Deputy Manager Josh is a real outdoorsman, having worked in the Outdoor Education industry for a number of years as both an Outdoor Instructor and as a Bushcraft/Survival Instructor working with children. Previously he travelled the world extensively and spent some time living in Barcelona. All this gives him a great deal of knowledge about the world outside the front door.

Liz has been with Rohan for over three years and has plenty of knowledge of our products to share. She enjoys creating mannequins to display our eye catching outfits. Living in Pateley Bridge in beautiful Nidderdale gives her lots of opportunities to test our gear as the weather gets pretty wild! Liz enjoys pilates, spending time with her family and exploring the countryside with her two crazy terriers, Sally and Patch.

Anthi is studying full time at Harrogate Grammar School. She has a wide variety of hobbies, which include dancing, yoga and caring for Alan & Steve her two leopard geckos.

Chris has recently graduated with a degree in philosophy from the University of St Andrews and is delighted to be back in his hometown here in sunny Yorkshire. Having travelled the world from a young age, he is always regaling customers with tales of his years abroad. He finds a way to go snowboarding every year, having carved up the pistes from the French Alps to Squaw Valley, California and is currently planning a trip to Germany. When he’s not out exploring someplace new, you’ll find him down the local rehearsal studio playing guitar with his rock band or in a coffee shop with his nose in a book.

Amy has recently graduated from the University of Edinburgh where she studied architectural history. She is also a talented musician and has performed all over Europe with different jazz orchestras. She is really enjoying her time at Rohan Harrogate and is getting to know all about the exciting kit. She is a great baker and often treats her colleagues to some delicious brownies! Amy loves to keep fit and has recently completed the Total Warrior Challenge in aid of The Dog’s Trust.

Charys is 17 years old and has recently joined the Rohan Harrogate team. She is in year 13 and is studying Philosophy and Ethics, Ancient History and Politics and Government. She likes cats and martial arts films and hopes to take a year out after her studies to take a gap year and travel. She also has a background in vintage fashion and loves hunting for bargains.

Stephen is a qualified graphic and exhibition designer. He is also currently studying on the Postgraduate Diploma in Teacher Training at Bradford College. His hobbies include sailing, archery, cycling and reading history (he has over 230 history book at home!)

Directions to our shop: The Harrogate train runs between York and Leeds with services every hour. Bus services run frequently from local townships and cities as well. Ripon, Skipton, Northallerton and The Dales are not too far away, so whether you are visiting Harrogate or coming through specifically to see what we have in our shop, it’s easy to get to.

Our store was opened in 2005 and is a converted three storey Victorian town house, directly opposite the train station and next door to the Victoria shopping centre. It is constructed from local Yorkshire stone and has a wonderful wrought iron canopy. The front of the building retains period iron framed windows and the overall effect is of a building that has retained its original charm.

We have a rolling exhibition of local photographers’ work around the shop including some very nice local shots by Robert Swindells and a selection of travel photographs by Sam Oakes.

The Nearest Parking – Victoria Multi Storey Car Park which is linked to the Victoria Shopping Centre by a bridge.

Local Knowledge – Harrogate is one of Yorkshire’s most beautiful towns to visit. Often people combine their visit to Rohan with a relaxing spa session in the Royal Baths or a trip to RHS Harlow Carr which is only a 45 minute walk from the store through the beautiful valley gardens.

No visit to Harrogate is complete without a visit to Bettys Tea Rooms where you can enjoy a cup of tea in very smart surroundings with a nice fat rascal (it’s a cake).

We are also home to the Harrogate International Centre which hosts some of the biggest events in the country and was the home of many a story from the early years of Rohan. It makes a great day out for any holiday in the Yorkshire Dales.

Staff Recommendations

When visiting Rohan Harrogate, make sure that you plan to spend lunch in town. Just on the square we have:

Carluccios, serving the best in Italian cuisine to eat in or take out. Bib and Tucker, bringing fabulous hand filled rolls made fresh infront of you and soup to the masses, Filmore and Union with a terrific selection of healthy vegan, veggie, celiac, tasty food, all very posh with superfood salads. The Harrogate Meatball Company, any guesses about what they sell?

Also, just around the corner we have Bettys Tea Rooms, one of the worlds best eating experiences, afternoon tea is serious treat food in rather fine surroundings. If that is too much for you then have a look into Baltzersens Ltd. a Scandinavian inspired cafe on Oxford Road, lovely cinnamon buns made fresh every morning or Hoxton North, a boutique coffee experience Parliament street, perfect for the true caffeine connoisseurs

If you get the chance to spend a weekend, you might enjoy a pint in the Old Bell, president Clinton’s favourite pub in Harrogate and catch a show in the Harrogate Theatre.

    Your journey to work in this horrible rain can be made vastly more comfortable with one of our Globetrotter Macs. The Globetrotter keeps you dry from head to toe and its smart styling is perfect for your commute. The barricade lining is extremely light and breathable, and the mac packs away into its own pocket so you can carry it with you easily and efficiently. The detachable hood also helps make the Globetrotter Mac perfect for the rain, or when the whether can’t make up it’s mind.

    Come into store to try one on!

    The festive season is approaching!

    We have the award winning Harrogate Christmas Market starting on Thursday, running until Sunday. There will be lots to see and do. Local crafts, tempting food stalls, abundant gift ideas, children’s rides, reindeer and possibly even the big man himself.

    The weather is looking promising at the moment, cold but dry.
    Our Downtown range is perfect for this type of weather. The ladies Downtown Coat is super warm and cosy but extremely lightweight. I have one and can highly recommend it.

    We also have a version for the men, all the same properties of the ladies one but just at hip length.

    You are guaranteed a warm welcome at Rohan Harrogate and we are looking forward to seeing you.

    With November moving past us faster than I’d like, the pressure is mounting to come up with ideas for presents not only for loved ones but also for ourselves!

    Something that I might be interested in is the Eagle Creek Pack-It System. I travel quite a lot, but I’ve never been able to get into the Pack-It stuff – with so many options available, it can be quite difficult to know where to start.

    Fortunately, however, there is a solution! We now have Eagle Creek Pack-It sets available in store, and they’re the perfect place to start with this ingenious packing system.

    There are two different sets available, the first features a new colour – Earth Green – and comes with a Quarter Cube, a Half Cube, and a full Cube. Perfect for casual wear, base layers, or any other sort of clothing that you’d be quite happy to roll up and tuck away. For more information on the Cube Set, follow the link below.

    The second set is the more versatile of the two, featuring a Medium Garment Folder, a Cube, and a Half Cube. This one comes in black, and is ideal for travelling with smart shirts and / or trousers that want to be folded up neatly before they’re packed away. More information on the Starter Set can be found by following the link below.

    And, of course, you can always come ask us about the Eagle Creek Pack-It system in the shop! We’ll be more than happy to help.

    Good luck with your gift shopping, and we’ll hopefully be seeing you soon!

    Chris @ Rohan Harrogate.

    I have seen lots of lovely Rohan waterproofs this morning as I strolled to work.

    Our range of coats are designed to cover all bases, whether you’re an avid walker, hiker, climber, cyclist, skier, or even if it’s just taking the dog for a walk, we have a coat that will suit you and your daily activities.

    For example, our classically designed Atlas Jacket.
    This jacket offers complete waterproof protection, but with an understated appearance.

    This is a breathable lightweight jacket that can be packed into its own Packpocket, meaning it is easily packed away in a bag ready for the ever changing British weather. This casually styled jacket is perfect for around town and has been very popular with dog walkers.
    This jacket comes in two colours for the women and two for the men.

    The Hilltop is another one of our outstanding jackets. It is a three quarter length jacket offering great protection for your bum and thighs. Perfect for hill walkers and outdoor professional! It includes internal zip pockets, one of which is able to fit an OS map. This a perfect all round coat which offers amazing protection against the British elements.

    Do you do outdoor sports? If you do, you may be interested in our Windshield jacket – come in to store and take a look! Gone are the days when windproof fleeces aren’t breathable! The windshield jacket is different, as the bonding between the two layers of fleece offers the perfect balance between breathability and wind resistance, whilst refusing to compromise on weight, comfort and ease or wear. This jacket is perfect for outdoor sports such as running, cycling, hill running – if you enjoy these sports then this is definitely the jacket for you!

    Hope you have a lovely day.
