The property

A characterful stone-built cottage sitting just outside the excitement of the prestigious market town of Helmsley you will find Rednal Cottage.

Offering accommodation for four guests, this delightful mid-terrace is perfect for a rural family escape or a romantic retreat, with the surrounding wonders of the North York Moors National Park providing a charming base all-year-round.

Park up directly outside before bringing your belongings up the couple of steps and entering the traditionally-styled living/dining room, its characterful beams, rustic woodburning stove and elegant furnishings making the perfect spot to unwind each evening, equipped with a Smart TV and a selection of books for all your entertainment needs.

Move through into the kitchen to find even more beautiful beams lining the ceiling adding to the quaint charm of the property; here you can find all the essentials you could need to prepare a family-favourite meal, including an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge freezer and a dishwasher, along with underfloor heating to keep you toasty as you potter around.

Adjoining the kitchen you can find the glorious terrace garden, its winding path leading you to an impressive lawned area where your canine companions can enjoy playing as you enjoy your lunch alfresco-style.

Moving up to the first floor you will be greeted by the master double bedroom with ample built in storage space for all your personal belongings, as well as the family bathroom resting on this floor too where you can indulge in a relaxing soak with a good book in hand after a day of adventure.

Up on the second floor rests the twin bedroom sitting beneath the eaves of the room, a wonderful hideout for the little ones, boasting beautiful views of the town below.

Set out on a day of adventure by starting your day exploring the local town, with plenty of eateries to choose from where you can purchase a hearty brunch to prepare you for a day of rambling, as well as the popular market town boasting a bustling market square well-worth exploring along with an impressive 12th century castle, an arts centre showing films and shows and an outdoor swimming pool, offering excitement at any time of the year.

If you're seeking history, both English Heritage’s Rievaulx Abbey and Castle Howard are in easy reach, while the nearby Duncombe Park National Nature Reserve hosts an array of natural wonders, with ancient trees, rich birdlife and bats, as well as rare insects, trout, otter and birds such as dipper, grey wagtail, kingfisher, grey heron and sand martin being found in the flowing River Rye, there's no better place to enjoy a leisurely stroll.

You can find ample opportunities for walking on your doorstep with the start of the Cleveland Way being in the town and the Hambleton Hills to the north, while the wider area of the National Park boasts so many unique walking routes to uncover.

Venture out to Thirsk to find even more wonderful eateries, along with attractions such as The World Of James Herriot, the home and surgery of TV/writer vet, Monk Park Farm with its array of adorable animals with opportunities for feeding calves and lambs or stroking guinea pigs, rabbits and even baby goats, while the Thirsk Racecourse offers a family-fun day out whether you're watching the races themselves or attending one of its other fantastic events such as circuses, festivals, firework displays and so much more.

With York and Scarborough just a scenic drive away too, there's no better choice than Rednal Cottage for an action-packed escape to North Yorkshire.

  • Mrs Waters

    “Arrived at the cottage at scheduled time of 3pm.”


    On entering the property the room smelt and had a foisty odour which was very unpleasant. The table in the lounge and kitchen were sticky and dusty and didnt appear to have been cleaned, The kettle which had water in was glass and had white limescale on the glass and floating in the water i tried to clean it but could not remove it all. We had booked the cottage for a week, however, we decided to leave the same day as we checked in we could not stand the odour of the place.I emailed Sykes immediately and also called them the next day.To date i have had no support from either Sykes or the owner of the property.

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.
