A delightful, bijou holiday cottage tucked away in a quiet location in Helmsley, one of the prettiest and most visited market towns in Yorkshire. Perfect for small families

Situated within a five minute walk to the centre of Helmsley's vibrant market square, you are spoilt for choice with independent shops and mouth-watering eateries, take your pick from local delis, tearooms or a traditional pub for a hearty meal. Helmsley itself offers so much there is very little need to explore too far afield, local attractions include Helmsley Castle, National Centre for Birds of Prey and The Walled gardens, or sample some local ale at the Helmsley Brewery. Step out the front door and head off in any direction, there are many walking routes that start and end in Helmsley. Or, drive to Pickering and take a ride on the famous North York Moors Railway which runs to Whitby, all set against the glorious backdrop of North Yorkshire.

Upon entering the stone-built cottage, which is crammed with character and a homely feel, guests will immediately feel relaxed and make themselves at home. After a day of adventures on the North York Moors, take your walking boots off and relax in the cosy open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Kick back on the sofa with a good book or curl up to watch a favourite programme or movie on the Smart TV. Rustle up a home-cooked meal in the kitchen which features an electric oven and hob, dishwasher and fridge with icebox and then dine at the breakfast bar. There is also a handy washing machine, just the trick after a bike ride or moorland stroll. When the night draws in, head upstairs to bed where you find two beautifully furnished bedrooms, a king-size and a small 4ft double (suitable for children) with storage for your clothes. Completing the accommodation is a bathroom with shower over bath and WC and a separate ground floor WC.

Enjoy the last of the evening sun with a drink in the garden on the outdoor furniture in your peaceful surroundings, whilst planning your next day's adventures. There is one allocated parking space and additional visitors spaces.

The sofa & bed were both comfy and the shower was very good. Sturdy outside furniture is available if needed.
