The Harewood Estate was developed into a purpose-built set for ITV’s Yorkshire village soap opera, due to its original filming location, Esholt, becoming too disrupted by tourism to continue production.

The estate contains a life-size replica of the town they filmed in for 22 years. Harewood House is only 20 minutes away from our hotel!

Happy Valley features Yorkshire landmarks such as Hebden Bridge and Sowerby Bridge, and areas in Huddersfield, Elland, Kirklees, Calderdale and Bradford.
