Trusted Trades Harrogate


Trusted trades are a compilation of trades people based in and around Harrogate who are genuinely recommended by Mumblers.

If you have received excellent service by a tradesman/woman and want to include them in this list then please contact us here with your recommendation, a brief description of their work for you and their contact details.

If you do use one of the trades people listed here make sure you tell them about Harrogate Mumbler!

All basic listings here are genuine recommendations and therefore are free of charge, however if you are a tradesperson who is already listed here and would like to upgrade your listing to a premium slot then please see our advertise with us section for pricing details.

The smallish print; I have put this list together as I know from personal experience how much of a nightmare it can be when you need something done, but have no idea who to call and how much is a fair price for the job. I hope it will be a good starting point for you but I would always recommend that you get a couple of quotes and then make your own choice. We at mumbler can’t take any responsibility for people listed here so if you do have any feedback (good or bad) then let me know here and if necessary I’ll remove the listing.

BCT Accountants Ltd

“I’d like to recommend Catherine Stork from BCT Accountants Ltd. Catherine was recommended to me by another Mumbler and I’m delighted with the service she has provided. Our initial meeting was at my home at a time to suit me (very helpful with young kids at home) and Catherine explained her services and her fees in plain terms with no hard sell or pressure.

She is very efficient and gently reminded me when my books were due in. She turned them around and submitted my accounts to HMRC in record time, keeping me fully up-to-date with the process at every juncture. She understands the pressures of small businesses, working mums and sole traders and I have no hesitation in recommending her services to other Mumblers.” Harrogate Mumbler Sept’ 14

Nik Pickard Photography – Creating Timeless Images.

harrogate portrait photography“I wanted something a bit different when I approached Nik. Not your run of the mill white background posed shots, but something earthy and real, that captured in all our dramatic glory me in a heavily pregnant state along with my 4 year old and 18 month old sons. Not an easy brief but the results were wonderful. I love Nik’s unique photographic style. I would highly recommend him.”
“Fantastic guy who produces the most beautiful, stunning, superb images. Really captured the essence of my daughters, would not hesitate to recommend Nik to anyone looking for a ‘proper’ photographer to do an amazing job. Wish there was an option for more than 5 stars! Keep up the great work Nik!”

Passport photos by Ian Hill photography

Ian Hill Photographers based in Ripon have a studio at home where they offer specialist baby and children passport service.

They take time to settle the baby or child to achieve the best possible passport photo. No squirming in a booth, or having baby placed on the floor of the shop, they believe in service with a smile and if baby is too upset to get the picture – they don’t charge.  The cost is £9.99, the same as their adult rate, and all the images are put through a passport checker programme on the computer to make sure it will pass first time.

Their website is or search for Ian Hill Photographers on facebook.

“After my husband googled passport photographers on the web we found Ian hill and I really can’t recommend them enough! Not only are they incredibly affordable, but the service from start to finish is fantastic. Both Ian and Jan take real pride in their work which is clear to see with their enthusiasm and passion for both photography and customer service. They made both myself and Son feel incredibly welcome and they even went to the trouble of taking some extra photos of myself and Bertie which they sent over after the shoot, just lovely!  We are now looking forward to our first family holiday in Spain with Bertie’s lovely passport! ” JM July ’14

“I was extremely happy with the service provided by Ian Hill Photographers and would recommend them to anyone looking to get a passport photo for their baby or young child. It all seemed a bit too good to be true, especially for the price of £9.99!” RI July ’14

The Money Coach

Are you worried about making the ‘right’ financial decision?  Do you feel like an ostrich with your head in the sand?

As a money coach I am here to clarify the financial world for my clients.  I eliminate the fear around making financial decisions by educating and mentoring (and sometimes hand holding) which creates financial confidence.

I know it’s not easy to open up and talk about money, which is why I offer a professional, caring and non-judgmental approach. Based on my solid financial training over many years combined with a lifetime of experience working with clients and their finances, I don’t use financial jargon or try to sell you financial products. Instead I work through realistic ways so that you can gain the financial security you seek.
