    “My stay at Bellwether was amazing.”

    I came in the summer and was blown away with the peace and tranquility it offers. Luxury, amazing hosts Fiona and Tim, confortable and a place to destress. I came again to see how it would be in the cooler months. I was just as happy and had the added bonus of using the log burner in the hut. With under floor heating too I was so cosy and warm. ...

    I came in the summer and was blown away with the peace and tranquility it offers. Luxury, amazing hosts Fiona and Tim, confortable and a place to destress. I came again to see how it would be in the cooler months. I was just as happy and had the added bonus of using the log burner in the hut. With under floor heating too I was so cosy and warm. You have definitely got to come and experience this way of living. If you like cosy, luxury, peace and quiet, fields and farm life then this is the place for you. A place to find yourself, relax or a great place for a romantic break for two. You have also got to experience a great massage from Fiona. Can’t wait to go back again.x

The property

Helmsley 2.2 miles.

Situated within the endearing countryside of North Yorkshire is this well-presented shepherd’s hut, Bellwether.

This wonderful base comes within striking distance of the majestic National Park and all of the delights of the market town of Helmsley, offering a romantic retreat for a couple seeking to explore this lovely part of the country.

This unique accommodation houses a stylish interior design and is well-equipped for you and your partner to spend some time within the countryside setting.

The well-equipped kitchen houses all the essentials to whip up a home-cooked meal that can be enjoyed at the dining table, or venture outside to dine alfresco with a glass of wine in hand, whilst soaking up the surroundings.

As the evening draws to a close, look forward to curling up on the well-presented double bed, whilst the woodburning stove fills the room with warmth during those chilly winter months.

If you can tear yourself away from this romantic base, a short drive will bring you to the market town of Helmsley where you will find a selection of pubs and eateries, as well as the Helmsley Castle and the Helmsley Arts Centre to keep you busy.

Brush up on the local history further, by visiting the ruins of the 11th-century Rievaulx Abbey or the Byland Abbey with its museum of artefacts.

For those feeling active, you will find miles of walking and cycling routes upon the National Park, with the popular Cleveland Way starting within Helmsley.

Alternatively, there is the National Centre for Birds of Prey, situated within the Duncombe Park estate, promising a splendid day out.

Bellwether is a wonderful base to return to each evening after a day exploring this superb 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.
