“The cottage was well well laid out inside, with good washing / d”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.

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 with a Michelin starred restaurant, 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.
