  • "Coranation Cottage is very handy for getting to the shops resturants in the centre of Helmsley."

    The only drawback is the lack of parking on site but there are usually spaces just a short walk away. Everything nice and clean, beds very comfy.David the owner is next door and had left milk & biscuits for us which was a nice touch. Hope to return in the near future .

    The Cottage was well equipped and had everything to make a perfect getaway. Helmsley is a gem and the cottage was right in the centre but tucked away in a quiet location. Perfect.

    Lots of great cafes, pubs & shops close by. The WiFi is very sketchy & not reliable, if you want to work at this cottage don’t rely on the WiFi.

  • "Coronation cottage is a very cosy cottage in an excellent location, right in the middle of Helmsley, close to shops, pubs and cafes."

    Very comfortable, with excellent facilities. Thoroughly recommend Helmsley for a fabulous holiday- it’s an excellent base from which to explore the Yorkshire Moors.

  • "Coronation Cottage fulfilled our hopes, being quiet, well located for exploring an unfamiliar region, comfortable bedding (more so than than the sofas), and well equipped kitchen."

    It had been cleaned well and some essentials left in the kitchen which were appreciated. The village offers a full complement of shopping opportunities, but it is unfortunate that the A170 road runs straight through. Lack of direct parking access was readily resolved. The slightly temperamnetal wifi signal posed occasional problems, but then our Somerset village has even worse signals! A strong request would be for the interesting information about the cottage to be made available in printed/typed form.

  • "Lovely little cottage in a good location in an attractive village."

    Although there is no parking at the cottage there is an area for a quick load or unload before having to park in nearby streets. Very warm and cosy. Might be worth noting that attractions around the area do not open until end of March for those intending to visit local museums etc. Lots of eating out options in the village; we liked the Royal Oak in the square, good food and good choice of real ales. Some lovely walks around the area, would recommend

    The holiday and cottage was great the only downside was the lack of a parking space for the car so this meant you had to find a parking space in a near by road

    A brilliant cottage hidden away in a secluded spot but in the heart of Helmsley. It was very comfortable and clean with lots of lovely touches to make it feel like a home away from home.

    Coronation Cottage is located right in the heart of the quaint little town but once inside you would never know! It was quiet and peaceful and very homely. It was lovely to hear the robins in the garden and I am sure in summer the garden would be beautiful! I would definitely stay there again!

    It was ideally situated for visiting places of interest; we visited Castle Howard, Nunnington Hall and Rievaulx Abbey as well as Helmsley Castle. All well worth a visit. We would certainly recommend this cottage to others and if in Helmsley again would certainly stay here.The owner came and introduced himself to my friends husband which we thought was a very nice touch he'd also left milk and biscuits and also a bottle of water for each of us (never had this anywhere else.Thank 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.
