    “The description doesn't do this cottage justice.”

    It's a perfect location for walking the Cleveland Way and visiting the gems that are dotted across the west of the North Yorkshire Moors all the way to the East Coast. The cottage itself is on a farm run by delightful and welcoming people who were very understanding about our pet number mix-up, and allowed us to take two dogs. If you're looking for 'away from it all' and spectacular views, this is the place to go. It's a very warm and comfortable cottage with every possible need covered. ...

    It's a perfect location for walking the Cleveland Way and visiting the gems that are dotted across the west of the North Yorkshire Moors all the way to the East Coast. The cottage itself is on a farm run by delightful and welcoming people who were very understanding about our pet number mix-up, and allowed us to take two dogs. If you're looking for 'away from it all' and spectacular views, this is the place to go. It's a very warm and comfortable cottage with every possible need covered. We tried very hard to think what else we might want, but could only come up with a second lavatory and a slotted spoon! There was even a collection of OS maps with walks highlighted. Helmsley is a few miles away and is a lovely little town which welcomes dogs in almost every shop and eatery, with 3 lovely pubs. The castle and it's surrounding area is well worth visiting, and the walk to Rivaulx is wonderful. The Abbey is another incredible site to visit. Going in the opposite direction from the cottage, the Cleveland Way has a good stopping point at East Paradise Farm's tea rooms which has fabulous home made cakes and serves savoury meals too. We can't wait to go back and have already booked to go in 4 months' time.

The cottage

Helmsley 7 miles.

A traditional, stone-built, semi-detached cottage, adjoining the owners' property on their working livestock farm near Old Byland, seven miles from the delightful market town of Helmsley.

Set in a peaceful location within the National Park, Wethercote Cottage has far reaching views across the North York Moors.

Cosy and comfortable, the open-plan living area retains much charm and character, including ancient low ceiling beams and pine doors.

A large, lawned garden complements the setting; the perfect place to sit and relax.

With numerous public footpaths in the area providing excellent walking opportunities, and Thirsk and Helmsley, with their pretty market squares, tempting tea rooms and country inns within very easy reach, this makes for a great holiday.

This lovely cottage is very close to Sutton Bank Bikes Ltd, where you can hire bikes for the day and explore the many cycle-ways and trails nearby.

Hop onto the Cleveland Way, which passes close by, leading from Helmsley, through Thirsk and around the North York Moors National Park to the coast and down to Filey.

Local attractions include Duncombe Park stately home, the James Herriot museum, Castle Howard and the historic City of York, to name but a few.

A superb Yorkshire cottage in a terrific location.

About the location

HELMSLEY

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.
