    • “We enjoyed our stay at Foxglove Cottage. It was tucked away in a nice quiet spot. It was only a short drive to Helmsley with it's great shops. The cottage was well situated for touring North Yorkshire. It was clean and well presented. Good parking too, which was what we wanted. My tip is to reverse into the driveway, it's much easier that way.”

    • “The location of the cottage is perfect - it provided the peaceful haven for writing and reading. The village was delightful and welcoming. The cottage was well set out and very comfortable. I loved the lay-out. The only small thing I would like to see in the cottage would be a shower over the bath. From the moment I arrived I felt quite at home. Thanks for a wonderful time I shall be returning.”

    • “This idillic cottage set on the outskirts of the main village was top notch accomadation. The service was excellent even down to the milk in the fridge for that much needed cuppa when we arrived. The cottage itself was furnished comfortably with impecable decor. Each room was well equiped for the needs we had. The cottage was situated centrally for all local attractions with in driving distance of where we wanted to go. The holiday was great even down to some late warm weather. Most definately a place to revisit again.”

About the location


Helmsley 3 miles; Kirkbymoorside 5 miles; Pickering 12 miles; York 23 miles.

The small, pretty village of Harome, on the southern edge of the North York Moors, is an idyllic place to stay. Old stone cottages line the main street and surround the delightful village pond, complete with ducks! Two excellent inns, one selling local produce, make up this little haven, whilst the prestigious market town of Helmsley lies just 3 miles away. Here, the traditional market square is surrounded by hotels, shops and tea rooms. An important area historically, Helmsley has its own 12th century castle and English Heritage's Rievaulx Abbey is close by. An excellent walking area, ideal for exploring the surrounding moors with their hidden dales and villages. York and Scarborough are less than an hour’s drive and Pickering with its famous steam railway just a 20 minute drive.
