  • "A lovely cottage in a prime location- quiet, but yet so close to everything."

    Cottage was very comfortable. clean and warm ( very important for a winter stay!) Would recommend.

  • "The property was comfortable and in a good location for the market square."

    Also nice and quiet. Good off road parking , although a number 8 on the wall would help. Also recommend a torch, as the lane approaching the property is very dark.

  • "Had a great stay, Helmsley always a great place to visit and people very friendly, plenty of places to eat and weather was very nice for the time of year."

    Cottage nice and warm, bathroom was very hard work, could have done with a few hooks and a shelf would have come in useful as there was nowhere to hang clothes or place anything. Regards Rick Davis

    The appliances in the cottage were of good quality, and it was clean and warm. We would certainly book the cottage again.

  • "The cottage is exceptionally clean and felt very Covid safe."

    The position is only two minutes walk from the main square in Helmsley where the shops restaurants and country walks make it an excellent base both for the North York’s Moors and the coast.

  • "The only problem we had was with the directions, we could not see/find a Black & white 'Stone Arch' sign with a black arrow, so we drove up and down Pottergate a few times before we found the narrow roadway."

    Found the bin store a bit awkward and could not see any obvious recycling bin. However the cottage was lovely - clean, tidy, well equipped and very cosy. It was in an ideal location with an easy walk to the main street. We absolutely loved Helmsley and are planning to visit again next year.

  • "Clearer details on exactly where to park the car, we were asked [politely] to move it by a neighbour which I did, my car is only small but felt it was quashed into a corner and difficult to get out so moved it onto the road, not ideal."

    the only other moan is not at all clear where exactly the turning into the Mews is and when we eventually found it we were unsure which house it was owing to no number on the door. The cottage is in a lovely position , is incredibly warm and has more or less everything we needed [had to buy oven gloves and scissors], all in all very good value for money

  • "Although the cottage was comfortable there was no information pack, which caused problems in a number of ways: - when the boiler failed I had to call the owner and Sykes for information on how to fix it - I only chanced on the Wi-fi password in one of the cupboards - no information on recycling and which bin to leave for collection - no information on medical services I am surprised you let cottages in your name when there is no information pack and I would like your response on the matter."

    I note, as you should have done, an identical comment on lack of information, in an October feedback.

    Thank you very much for your comments and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts. Customer feedback is very important to help us continually improve our standards. I am happy to tell you there is now an information pack in the property. Once again, we thank you for taking the time to give us your valuable feedback. The Property Owner and Quality Assurance Team will receive your feedback in order for them to act upon any areas you have highlighted. If additional information is required a member of our Customer Service Team will contact you.

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.
