Solar power, now available from the Estate’s own solar-energy farm, will let tenants promote a greener profile while benefitting from substantial savings – typically 20 per cent – on their energy bills.
Mark Mackaness, owner of Rudding Park Estate, said:
“Haggs Farm has always been an attractive and popular place for businesses to operate from as we are not only located in the heart of the Yorkshire countryside but have great access to Harrogate, Leeds, York and the A1(M), as well as plenty of car parking.
“Now we are delighted to say that everyone working here has access to broadband speeds that can compete with the UK’s major cities, which will make it even easier for them to work in the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside.
“Our tenants can also make substantial savings with our solar energy, which is something we wanted to introduce at Haggs Farm Business Park as part of a general drive to make the Rudding Park Estate more sustainable.”
Haggs Farm Business Park is situated on Haggs Road between the A658 and Spofforth, three miles south of Harrogate town centre.
Units range from 431sqft to 1400sqft in size, and are for office use.
Chris Hartnell, lettings agent at Carter Jonas, said that five units are currently available – and these latest improvements will mean they will let quickly.
“The offices at Haggs Farm provide businesses with good quality offices in an attractive rural location with ample car parking.
“The recent improvements to the broadband speed will not only help existing tenants but ensure Haggs Farm is a viable location for a wide range of local businesses.”
Occupiers can make use of health and fitness facilities at the adjacent Spa Bottom Farm on the Rudding Park Estate.
The A658 Harrogate southern bypass lies half a mile to the west and provides good connections to the A61 Leeds Road, the A59 York Road and the A1(M).
Major railway stations are at Harrogate, York and Leeds and the Leeds Bradford Airport is only 12 miles away.
