  • "I really enjoyed my stay at Mole End cottage."

    The proprietor was welcoming and very helpful. The facilities were excellent and the cottage comfortably furnished. The view from the french doors across the wooded valley was a daily visual delight, and the peace and quiet of the country farm something special after the constant traffic of town life. I would like to recommend this cottage to future visitors looking for a restful base from which to explore.

    Thank you very much for your lovely review. We're very glad you had a comfortable and relaxing stay and that you enjoyed the peaceful surroundings.It was a pleasure having you here and we hope to see you again. Property Owner

About the location


Kirkbymoorside 6 miles; Thirsk 14 miles; Pickering 13 miles; York 26 miles.

Lying in a sheltered corner of Upper Ryedale, on the southern edge of the North York Moors National Park, Helmsley is a prestigious market town with a spacious market square surrounded by houses, hotels and shops. The area is important historically - Helmsley has its own 12th century castle and English Heritage’s Rievaulx Abbey and Castle Howard are close by. Helmsley also boasts an arts centre showing films and plays, and an outdoor swimming pool, which is open during the summer. There is excellent walking on the doorstep - indeed the Cleveland Way starts in Helmsley - and the surrounding North York Moors with their hidden dales and villages are pretty in all seasons. York is less than an hour's drive south, as is Scarborough, Whitby and the east coast, whilst Pickering and the beginning of the famous steam railway line (North Yorkshire Moors Railway) are a little over 20 minutes' drive.
