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.

Previous visitors' comments about Holly Cottage:
Quiet location. No traffic sounds at night and very little in the daytime. Very close to quaint market town with pretty shops and good dining. Very warm with excellent heating and non-stop hot water. Large garden full of birds and rabbits. Fresh eggs from farm opposite.

We enjoyed our stay at Holly Cottage very much. The log fire was a welcome addition on rainy evenings in the comfy sitting room. The rural setting was wonderful and the garden was delightful and beautifully kept as was the house. We loved the general quirkiness and the peacocks opposite. Beautiful area.

An excellent cottage, really warm and cosy. We would certainly go again. There was a nice garden with plenty of room to relax in. The chairs and table were perfect for alfresco dining.
