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 walking distance 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.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
