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.

    Good afternoon Rohaners,

    Today my Amblers came into store!
    Amblers are a dynamic, durable essential. They are lightweight and super comfy. I have only been wearing them for an hour and am already in love with them. They have a really soft lining inside and are stretchy so are easy to move in.

    Come into store and check them out!

    Or check them out online…

    I’ve often wondered how people walk around town wearing just a t-shirt with a shirt over the top of it, even in the frostier corners of this beautiful country. It always just seemed impractical to me – maybe they looked cool but surely they were freezing cold? I’d much sooner have something with some actual insulation in it.

    Now I know that you can actually have both, with our range of insulated shirt-styled jackets. Whether you prefer something smarter, like the Transit Jacket, or in that classic lumberjack check, like the Backcountry Shirt, you’ll be nicely wrapped up against the spring time chill without the hassle of a bulky coat.

    You can find the details at the links below, or feel free to drop into the shop and we’ll be more than happy to give you the lowdown.

    It’s been a bright day here in Harrogate, but it’s always hard to tell when it’s going to blow a gale or bucket down with rain when you live in such a hilly town. Out walking the dogs this morning, I had to quickly pull out my Elite Jacket to defend myself from the elements. But that’s never a problem with a waterproof jacket that takes up less space in my backpack than my lunch does.

    With a super-lightweight waterproof jacket you never have to worry about whether or not you’re going to need it. We have just got Elite Jackets in two new colours for the Spring Summer season into store today, and they are looking fantastic. Check them out by following the links below, or drop into the shop and we’ll be more than glad to talk to you about them – we’re super excited about all the new gear!

    We look forward to seeing you soon.

    With the harsh winter weather dampening the arrival of Spring Summer ranges, it can often be tricky to find new gear which is fit for the current weather. Fortunately, Rohan have found a fantastic solution in one of nature’s most technical materials – Merino Wool.

    Not only is Merino soft, UV protective and highly wicking, it also has anti-odour properties and an ability to regulate your temperature – giving you the power to embrace or escape the cold.

    Because our Merino products are so versatile and easy to care for, why not explore the range online? Or come into store to see for yourself!
