My husband John and I had a really lovely time in Helmsley, which is really picturesque,and your cottage is beautiful. It is ideally situated for the market place which we visited each evening. There was plenty to see and do and the views along the way were stunning.

A really lovely, well thought out place to stay. Clean, every comfort and the amenities made the stay so good - June

Excellent Home in picturesque Hemsley

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious, comfortable and immaculately clean home set in a village immediately adjacent to the North Yorkshire Moors and close to Whitby and York. It also has a lovely garden.

The facilities and the condition of this house are of a high standard. It is a short walk to all provision needs, shopping and restaurants in Helmsley centre. Parking is ample.

We enjoyed a beautiful circular walk to Riveaulx Abbey and other walks in the Moors themselves. Day trips to Whitby and York were easily managed. We can recommend lunch at Ampleforth School.

We could easily have stayed another week or more. Thanks to Sarah for maintaining such a high standard.

From the Owner

We had a weeks holiday in Helmsley in 2007 and loved the town and surrounding area that we decided to buy a cottage there. Helmsley is a pretty, bustling, thriving market town with a variety of tea rooms, restaurants and individual shops. The countryside surrounding the town is magnificent. We find that there is something to suit everyone from young families to serious walkers in the area.
