This charming cottage set within the traditional market town of Helmsley is brimming with character and is perfect for a family of walkers wanting to explore the North York Moors National Park.
Discover the pretty streets of Helmsley and experience Yorkshire charm in abundance, choosing this delightful terraced cottage as your cosy bolthole. Sleeping five guests across three bedrooms, your homely abode is tucked down a private snickelway and the traditional stone exterior reveals a welcoming retreat characterised by cosy interiors and an open fire.
Simple yet stylish with a slight hint of Art Deco-inspired decor, the capacious lounge/diner has a relaxed atmosphere for chilly evenings snuggling under throws with your hands clasped around a hot chocolate. Warm your toes on the open fire and watch exciting films on the TV, breaking out the board games before enjoying a cheese board and your favourite tipple. A curved archway leads through to the dining space, an elegant nook with further comfortable seating, a rustic wooden table and quirky decorative accessories.
The enthusiastic cooks amongst you will quickly fall in love with the muted shaker-style units, Range-style eclectic oven and wooden flooring in the kitchen. Your fellow guests can perch at the bijou table and prepare the wine whilst you rustle up a culinary masterpiece, transforming an array of locally sourced ingredients into mouth-watering meals fit for a celebration. Gather your entire party in the dining room to enjoy each other’s company and celebrate your Yorkshire get-together.
Open the French doors and let the outside in, or step outside for an al fresco meal in your private courtyard at dusk. With gravel underfoot and garden furniture available for your sole use, your outside space is a real suntrap for sipping an afternoon drink. On the nights you need a break from cooking, Helmsley has a whole host of restaurants to choose from.
Back inside, the steep cottage-style stairs are ingeniously concealed behind an unassuming wooden doorway. Ascend to the first floor and refresh tired limbs in the marvellous shower room. All three bedrooms carry a country cottage vibe with soft bedding and furniture, whether you choose the attractive twin bedroom with its identical beds, the sweet single bedroom, or the cheerful double which has the added bonus of its own TV. This is an excellent option if you are in need of a quiet sanctuary to recharge your batteries.
