  • "We hope to book the cottage again."

    We were egg-static about the welcome half-dozen and the double mattress is the most comfortable I have ever slept on. The wi-fi was great too and the teenager was able to do his uni tutorials on Zoom. It was lovely to see The Grapes thriving in Slingsby and catch up with many local relations and friends.

  • "The owners are friendly and welcoming."

    The cottage is warm and comfortable. It is a little bit away from the village and no footpaths directly from the farm, However, we enjoyed our stay, it was quiet and relaxing and we enjoyed exploring the area.

  • "We have just returned from a lovely week at Summerfield Farm Cottage."

    The location was perfect for us as it was peaceful but not too far from walking/places to see and a shop in Kirkbymoorside. The cottage was well equipped and had everything we needed and they clearly consider Covid cleaning between stays. My only slight negative comments would be that some rooms are starting to look like they could do with a lick of paint and also maybe a clearer signage of the main farmhouse as the few quiet caravans that were there kept getting mixed up and trying to come pay us for their plot! This wouldn’t put us off staying here again though.

  • "Great location for exploring the North Yorkshire moors and coast, the house is a bit old fashioned but is clean and warm, the stairs are a bit steep and the bathroom is tagged onto the property in a cold extention, however there is a second shower room upstairs which is OK."

    The master bedroom could do with blackout curtains, we were woken each day at 5AM by the sun.

    Perhaps the best equipped kitchen in any cottage we’ve stayed in, even though we didn’t do any cooking. Fiona was very helpful and the eggs are just delicious!

  • "We had a lovely time at Summerfield Farm Cottage near Helmsley."

    It was warm, cosy and clean with good cooking facilities and really comfortable beds. The owners were very welcoming and respectful and provided gorgeous fresh eggs on arrival. We had booked to go in spring but when Covid hit I cancelled the booking and rebooked for later. Sykes were very good with communications, refund and rebooking and all information was clear. Thank you!

  • "Cottage was lovely, really had everything you needed."

    Lovely outdoor space ideal for our small dog as secure all round. Great swing which the kids enjoyed and seeing the pigs. Lovely touch with the fresh eggs left for us. Clean and comfortable. Beautiful area our first time of exploring, so much to do as long as you have the car as cottage out in the countryside. Beautifully quiet and peaceful a real get away. Great Covid secure plan and instructions. Definitely be returning.

  • "A beautiful, peaceful setting."

    gorgeous views from every window! Lots of places to go walking in the area. The garden is great for relaxing at the end of the day. We enjoyed exploring round the farm and meeting up with the animals. The cottage is very comfortable, clean and had all the kitchen equipment we needed. In these COVID times I would recommend organising a grocery delivery from one of the supermarkets based in Malton. The family were welcoming (loved the banana bread) friendly and available when we needed to ask anything but also gave us our privacy. We enjoyed a fantastic week.

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.
