    “2, Mews Cottages, Pottergate ,Helmsley We thoroughly enjoyed our week.”

    Sitting in the garden with a cup of tea a real pleasure! ...

    Sitting in the garden with a cup of tea a real pleasure! The modern cottage is quietly situated only a few minutes walk behind the High Street. It is one of five in a row, four of which are second homes or holiday lets. The access is pedestrian only, from the private secure parking area with one allocated parking place and no spare parking places. therefore all your luggage and shopping has to be carried. The kitchen functions well and is only a few steps from the dining area which has a large table. The living room furniture is leather and not over comfortable - low and slippery but that is personal taste. Beds are comfortable but, as a previous client said,the bedrooms lacked chests of drawers for clothing that did not hang up, a dressing table and a chair of any sort - basic not 4 star luxury. We understand that the property is new to the owners and is being redecorated and hopefully some additional furniture provided. We would book this property again if we wanted to stay in the area as the central location and local shopping was perfect.

The property

This pleasing stone-built mews cottage is discreetly sited within a five-minute walk to the centre of the picturesque market town of Helmsley, on the edge of the North York Moors National Park.

Lying behind a communal security gate, this cottage provides an ideal retreat for those looking to explore this popular area on foot, cycling or by car.

The sitting room with dining area is comfortable whilst the kitchen is well-equipped with a modern feel.

There is a walk-in shower upstairs and a useful cloakroom on the ground floor.

The master double bedroom upstairs has a spacious walk-in wardrobe for added convenience and the second double bedroom is equipped with chest of draw storage.

Outside to the front is a patio area with furniture, and a small lawn beyond.

This small mews development fosters a tranquil atmosphere in a sheltered spot, away from the hustle and bustle of the nearby market square.

There are excellent amenities on the doorstep whereby guests have lots of options to fill their days, be it sampling the fine selection of local inns, delis and restaurants, or the inviting cafés and bookshops.

A short walk brings you to Helmsley Castle and the Walled Garden, whilst a longer hike winds up the vale to the spectacular ruin of Rievaulx Abbey.

This area is a walker's paradise with many trails leading through glorious countryside, and Helmsley sits at the head of the Cleveland Way.

With easy access to the pretty coastal seaside towns, the North Yorkshire Moors and the historic city of York with its many attractions, this comfortable property is well placed to leave a lasting impression of a wonderful holiday.

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.
