A wonderful character cottage right in the centre of Helmsley. Spacious and well appointed.
A great cottage for families with everything you need at hand. Helmsley offers loads of shops pubs and restaurants for all tastes and you are central for the Moors and Coastal trips.
WONDERFUL COTTAGE, TOWN AND PEOPLE
Had the most wonderful time getting together with my widespread family in Osbourne Cottage, 16 Castle Gate, Helmsley. Just the most gorgeous cottage and town. An ideal base from which to travel around this area and beyond. The Yorkshire people were helpful and friendly especially all the people we dealt with to do with renting the cottage for our stay. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED.

Auntie Annes bakery is only a few doors up from the cottages, for your freshly baked breads in the mornings. There are several pubs and hotel bars to suits every need and budget, most serving food plus an Italian and a fish & chip restaurant/take away. Helmsley has a couple of extensive delicatessens, a fabulous local butchers, two mini markets for your basics, 3 banks and a petrol station.
Whether you are looking for a gentle stroll or more of a hike, there are numerous routes within touching distance, a popular route being the Cleveland Way to the ruins of Rievaulx Abbey.
Helmsley also boasts a restored walled garden, which is certainly worth a visit, as well as the ruins of the 12th century castle and The Meeting House dramatic arts center. Alternatively while away your days wandering around the shops and boutiques.
