REVIEW | Harrogate Tribe’s Blogger Breakfast at The West Park Hotel
I was delighted to be involved in a Harrogate Tribe event last week. The Harrogate Tribe’s Blogger Breakfast event was held in the scrumptious surroundings of the West Park Hotel. Timed perfectly for just after school drop off, the promise of meeting like-minded bloggers whilst indulging in some lovely grub sounded like a perfect Friday morning.
I duly starved myself all morning. Drooled over the kids’ scrambled eggs and even stared longingly at Hubby’s home-made ginger and greens juice. Then once the school run was finished, I dashed into town, threw my change into the parking machine and waltzed into the hotel, trying to disguise my rumbling tummy.
The Blogger Breakfast was hosted in a private conference room towards the back of The West Park Hotel.
I was warmly greeted by Victoria – The Harrogate Girl – and Chelsea, the two lovely ladies behind Harrogate Tribe and then I was let loose at the pastries. I had three. In case you’re wondering. A plain croissant. A custard-filled croissant and then I finished off with some kind of pain au chocolat.
Stomach temporarily satisfied, I then met several fellow bloggers. The variety of bloggers in the room was impressive. From lifestyle bloggers, parent bloggers and skincare bloggers to professional bloggers and those tackling the tricky subject of mental health, the room was packed full of very talented and passionate writers. I tackled my steadily rising imposter syndrome by ordering breakfast.
The menu was impressive. Many of those around me ordered the avocado and poached eggs, or the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs.
I ordered a sausage sandwich. It was delicious and very posh. Served on a toasted ciabatta with delicate peak shoots, I couldn’t actually eat it all. No wonder, given the number of pastries I’d shovelled down my neck.
Harrogate Tribe’s Blogger Breakfast was a super event to be involved in. I met some fabulous fellow bloggers in my local community and felt privileged to be invited along. We were also invited just along the road to take advantage of a free dinner for two from Cook – frozen, home-made dinners just like you’d make at home.
Thank you to The Harrogate Tribe for organising and for having me along. Thank you also to The West Park Hotel for the food and the fabulous service.

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
GREAT GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM | He’ll love this immersive Crime Scene Investigation Experience in Yorkshire
Anyone who fancies themselves a bit of a sleuth. If you’re an armchair detective and work out “whodunnit” before Poirot even twiddled his moustache or love watching real crime documentaries then this CSI Experience in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire is for you. Vouchers don’t have to be bought in pairs but I would say that to get the most out of the experience you’d be best off going with likeminded, crime-fighting friend.
If you love food and don’t know Sheffield very well then the Kelham Island Food Tour could be the one for you. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, filled with many tasty delights whilst discovering new places around the much loved industrial part of town. The first time I ventured away from my city-centre haunts was shortly after finishing uni, when we discovered the Fat Cat pub and (more importantly) £2 pints of ale. It dumbfounded us that we’d never even heard of this part of town, so finding such an amazing place to drink after four years living in Sheffield was quite a late discovery!
I am a pub girl through and through and a glutton for a good, hearty menu. Forever hunting out new locations to catch up with my friends or to go for lunch with the family, so was super excited to discover this little gem situated in the beautiful Sutton.
