This warm and welcoming cottage on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors is a haven for two with a traditional style, warming wood burner and an invigorating private hot tub for relaxation. Foodies will be delighted to visit the Michelin-starred restaurant which lies just a mile away, or the broad selection of eateries on offer in York (23 miles) boasting a plethora of cuisines and experiences.

Luxurious leather sofas, an authentic wood burner and beautiful exposed beams make the living room a cosy space to kick back and relax with a film on the TV. With light pouring in through the large windows during the day, and the crackle of the fire at night, this is an idyllic spot to spend time with your loved one at all times of the day.

Next door, the kitchen/diner has a quirky style with everything you’ll need to cook meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a quaint breakfast bar with views out to the garden. Situated in the sunroom is a dining table for intimate evenings, as well as an extra sofa where you can sit and lose yourself in a good book.

Take the staircase to the first floor to find the generously sized bedroom in earthy tones featuring a super-king-size zip-and-link bed and an exposed stone feature fireplace.

Come morning, noon and night, the garden is a serene haven for you to make the most of, be it sipping your morning coffee on the bistro-style table and chairs, or soaking in the hot tub under the light of the stars.

For the outdoor adventurers amongst you, head for the Howardian Hills (12 miles) to immerse yourself in nature with a range of walking trails varying from easy to challenging. In contrast, spend a day wandering the cobbled streets of the city of York to immerse yourself in local history from its Roman origins to its Viking connections all housed within its architectural walls.

Nestled in the picturesque landscape of North Yorkshire, Helmsley (11 miles) beckons visitors with its rural charm, vibrant culture and rich history. From characterful restaurants and fine dining experiences to fascinating historical landmarks and a dedication to the arts, Helmsley has something to offer for everyone.

Boasting a history dating back to mediaeval times, you can take a step back in time and learn of what life was once like with a visit to the ruins of the 12th-century imposing Helmsley Castle. Not only does the castle offer historical significance, but also breathtaking views of the town from its towers with a remarkable panoramic viewpoint at the top.

Helmsley Walled Garden is well worth a visit whilst staying nearby. This horticultural paradise offers a serene retreat for a day out with whimsical walks and the opportunity to stop for tea and cake. Stroll through colourful flower beds, admire the meticulously maintained greenhouses, and be inspired by the natural beauty of the grounds. Alternatively, pay a visit to the sprawling estate of Duncombe Park showcases both nature and architecture with glorious gardens, woodlands and the intricate building of the house itself.

Just 13 miles away, you'll find the stunning Rievaulx Abbey, a ruined Cistercian monastery. Here you can explore its Gothic architecture and picturesque surroundings, making it a favourite among history enthusiasts and photographers.

For outdoor adventures, the North York Moors National Park is just a stone's throw away. Embark on scenic hikes, and mountain bike rides, or simply revel in the beauty of unspoiled nature.

Whether you're seeking history, outdoor adventures, or simply a relaxing getaway, Helmsley has something to offer everyone.

Fabulous cottage with plenty of character. Access is tricky, as others have pointed out, but doable. We had a cycle rack on the back which made parking even trickier but still managed. Storing bikes was also tricky given the compact nature of the property. Overall a lovely cottage in a beautiful, peaceful location

Tickleberry cottage is quaint and beautifully renovated. The lounge is cosy with the log burner and the super king size bed is super comfy. The hot tub is clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed our stay. The garden is not very dog friendly as it is astroturfed and not grassed.

The cottage is cosy and well appointed. The only drawback is the narrow cobbled lane you have to drive up to reach the cottage. There is parking on the road but its not convenient for loading and unloading the car.
