It ticks all the boxes, just the holiday location we like!- Mrs Miles, September 2020
“Brilliantly equip kitchen.”
The owner was great to chat too from reassuring over being covid-19 safe to a local playground in the village for the kids at the cricket ground to quieter sea side areas dog friendly and places to walk. Lovely enclosed garden too. Great holiday- Ms Harris, August 2020
“This was a brilliant locality for a holiday with plenty to see and do.”
Our favourite trips were to Helmsley town and birds of prey centre, and to Castle Howard. The holiday cottage was lovely and comfortable with everything we needed for a great break.- Dr Blake, July 2020
“Lovely cosy cottage with comfy beds and carefully chosen equipment in the kitchen.”
We enjoyed our stay with three grandchildren very much. Very handy for Birds of prey centre at Helmsley, Brimham Rocks and Catching crabs on the harbour at Whitby.- Mrs Hoeft, October 2019
“Well positioned for exploring the whole area.”
There was everything we needed in the Cottage. Wifi was a bit slow upstairs,and we had no mobile signal when inside. Could do with seat cushions on dining room chairs (as we played scrabble/cards in the evening - and the chairs became hard after a while!) Found the mattress nearest the window in the twin room too soft (everyone must prefer this one) The electricity went off one evening, found the fuse box after a search above the entrance to the property and reset it. Might have been easier to find if there was a sticker on the door, or info in the house book.- Mr Howard, June 2019
“We loved Archway House, every thing you could possibly need and more.”
3 generations and a little dog had a lovely stay here. It’s all the nice little touches, toys and books and little table and chairs in the child’s bedroom, lovely family selection of DVDs and really well equipped kitchen, safe and secure garden. Great location.- Mrs Wilson, June 2019

Didn't try local F&C shop or Indian so can't comment.- Miss Hughes, June 2018
“Archway House is a superb example of an ideal holiday cottage.”
We had such a lovely holiday. The area is very quiet and peaceful with the road out the front being only used by local residents and occasional tractors.

This charming end-terrace cottage is quietly tucked away in the small village of Nawton, midway between the pretty market towns of Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside.
With spacious rooms, the property is perfect for families wishing to explore the stunning scenery of the North York Moors, with easy access to the seaside towns of the East Coast.
The entrance is through the archway and stable door, into the modern kitchen with twin aspect windows throwing in plenty of light.
The generous-sized, traditional sitting room is comfortably furnished, with a dining table to one end, a cosy gas fire and French doors opening onto the pleasant rear garden.
Upstairs are three attractive bedrooms, one with a romantic four-poster bed, along with the family bathroom, while there is an additional shower room on the ground floor, allowing lots of flexibility.
Outside the cottage, the tranquil and private garden enables guests to relax in the sunshine and enjoy a morning coffee on the decked patio, with lovely, rural views.
A gentle stroll brings you to the local pub, the fish and chip shop and an excellent Indian restaurant, while nearby Helmsley is an absolute delight with quaint tea rooms, restaurants, speciality shops and a small beck running through.
In the summer months, the hanging baskets that adorn the stone buildings are spectacular and a real tribute to the town.
With a 12th century castle, Duncombe Park with its walled garden and beautiful walks, it provides an excellent day out.
The lively market town of Pickering lies ten miles east of Nawton and offers twice-weekly markets along the main street, along with museums, a trout fishing lake and the terminus of the North York Moors Steam Railway.
This wonderful nostalgic trip takes you through the heather-clad moors to Grosmont and Whitby.
With many attractions to enjoy in the area, this cottage provides the perfect base.
