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.

=======================
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.

    So our Summer Essentials promotion has hit our stores but has dragged the rain with it! But don’t worry, an essential piece of kit from our summer range keeps you dry but also allows you to breath – the Elite jacket.

    Available in two colours for both ladies and gents, the Elite is the perfect lightweight waterproof to have with you on warm days when the heavens could open at any second. It is highly engineered to provide excellent protection from the elements. The ideal take-along for hillwalking, biking or commuting.

    Take a quick look here:

    Gents http://www.rohan.co.uk/mens-travel-and-outdoor-waterproofs-Elite-Jacket-ss16?ocode=04278G53

    And at 20% it would be silly not to at least try one on. So pop in to our shop and the team will sort you out.

    See you soon

    As my time here at Rohan Harrogate draws to a close, I’ve spent some time looking back over the past couple of years at all the clothing I’ve managed to accrue and picked out the one product that is head and shoulders above the rest as my favourite and it is undoubtedly…

    Drum roll please…

    The Trailblazers. These have been my go to trouser for pretty much every and any occasion, with plenty of stretch, loads of pockets and the added benefit of Insect Shield to keep the nasty’s away during the summer or just while out walking.

    They were the first pair of trousers I bought and I’ve had several more since and will certainly be picking some more up after my time here has ended.

    Pop in and see the team here at Rohan Harrogate and check them out!

    What a beautiful few days we’ve been having here in Harrogate! It’s coming to that time of year now when the sunny days start to outnumber the rainy ones, and we can just about get away with calling it summer without jinxing it.

    The thing is, however, that summer time in the North isn’t really that warm. And when there are a few moments of heat, they can retreat as quickly as they appear. So what is a well-prepared individual supposed to wear?

    The answer is Merino wool. Originating in the coats of New Zealand sheep, this fabric is a wonder of natural innovation. It’s antimicrobial so your sweat won’t smell, it washes and dries with ease, and it feels lovely and soft on the skin. But most importantly for the matter at hand, it’ll not only keep you warm when it’s cold, it’ll cool you down when it gets too hot. We mix ours with a little polyester to add to the durability, and use it in an awesome range of long and short sleeved tees for both men and women.

    Check them out at the links below, or come into your local shop and ask the staff about the wondrous stuff that is Merino wool.

    Hopefully it’ll be staying sunny wherever it is you are! See you in-store soon.

    Good afternoon!

    There are certain inescapable facts in this world which will always be true: what goes up must come down, the bigger they are the harder they fall, the Rolling Stones will never actually retire and Jeremy Clarkson will always think he’s far smarter and funnier than he actually is.

    One other inescapable fact, a universal truth that can never be disputed is that our Bags trousers will never, ever go out of fashion. Rohan’s Bags are the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be.

    The original, the best, like no trouser ever was; multi-functional and with over a million sold, if there’s one pair of trousers you need this summer, it’s the Bags.

    Coming in a wonderful variety of colours, our Bags are an absolute must have.

    We hope to see you in store soon to try on a pair!

    It’s sunny here in Harrogate…and pleasantly warm! Perfect weather for the gorgeous Tangier Trousers and a lovely Strata Top.

    This combo is ideal for warm weather travel and smart enough for a spot of sightseeing on a city break. I can just imagine sipping an ice cold glass of Prosecco watching the sun set by the leaning tower of Pisa whilst wearing this outfit!

    Check it out online or even better, pop in to see us here at Rohan in Harrogate!
