  • "Lovely cottage But a few disappointments No outdoor wooden furniture as before, only two small camping chairs."

    Could not alfresco. No instructions on how to use gas fire. No information left for emergencies ie chemist’s ,Dr etc. outdoor rubbish bin full so we had to balance ours on top at end of stay.. The details for collection s inside the cottage are out of date. On your pictures the gardens look wonderful but this is the second time we have found the planted areas chocked with weeds some could be harmful to children. These are mainly small points but they all add up. Saying all this we will be pleased to return as all can be rectified.

  • "My only issue was trying to warm the place up on a couple of days, had to keep adjusting the boiler settings."

    Apart from that I really enjoyed my stay and felt at home for the week.

  • "This is a lovely cottage close to local amenities, especially The George and Dragon, and a perfect base for exploring the beautiful moors and the many historic sites."

    The cottage itself is extremely comfortable, well equipped and a home from home.

    The garden is amazing, peaceful and a haven for birds. The cottage is so well equipped and comfortable we really didn't want to leave. The beds are blissful and a good nights sleep is assured. We love, love, love this cottage. Thank you so much for everything.

  • "What a wonderful cottage in a superb location for scenic drives over the moors to day trips on the shore."

    The house was beautifully equipped for home cooking and the High Street is just a five minute walk away with at least three pubs, a post office, and a convenience store for the inevitable ingredient you forgot to pack. There is secure private parking and wonderful views, and the owner is gracious and helpful. We'll be back for sure!

    There is an outstanding issue with a bathroom blind which will take longer as it needs skilled attention . Generally very happy at Howe Green and we intend to re visit .

  • "This cottage was perfect in every way."

    The owner Sue had thought of everything and more. A bottle of bubbly amongst other goodies on arrival, spotlessly clean, cosy we could live here! Just brililant, probably the best - of may good ones - that we have enjoyed with Sykes.

    York, Whitby and Scarborough are all an easy drive away. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. We will happily go back there!

  • "We have stayed at this property twice in the past with absolutely no problems."

    This time on arrival, we thought the cleaners were still in as the vacuum cleaner was on it's side at the foot of the stairs with the lead trailing around the room and rubbish left on the downstairs windowsill. However they weren't and it had just been left. There were cobwebs in the downstairs toilet and the toilet brushes were filthy. Several of the cups were dirty. There was no TV reception as the local mast was down. There was an extremely unpleasant smell from the drains when any water was put down the kitchen sink. I spoke to the owner about this and on the Thursday a plumber came out and unblocked the drains. Regarding the lack of TV reception, the owner was aware of this and advised us to buy some DVDs from a charity shop. I replied that if we had been informed of this in advance we could have made alternative arrangements e.g brought a laptop. Not very satisfactory.

    A couple of small things: (1) No instructions on how to use the thermostat (2) Instructions about when to put out bins were not clear - we put out the recycling and garden waste bins on the stated days but they were not collected (possibly because it was a fortnightly collection)

  • "It was the most amazing cottage we had ever stayed at."

    Everything was perfect apart from not recognising the actual cottage compared to the photo. This was due to the fact that the photo was a picture of the front and the one we actually saw was the garden side from the back. After riding up and down the street 4 times we found it, but no complaints. I will certainly be looking for another holiday with Sykes.

  • "Property listing states washer/dryer on the itinerary but property only has washing machine, no tumble dryer, otherwise a very clean well presented property with a lovely patio and garden."

    Very good value for money and we will definitely stay again at Howe Green Cottage as it is a great base for touring the North Yorkshire Moors, the East Coast and York.

The property

An exceedingly pretty, small and cosy stone-built, detached cottage situated just a few minutes' walk from the centre of Kirkbymoorside, whilst maintaining its distance from the general hustle and bustle of this charming market town.

Warm and inviting, this delightful, period property is ideal for a couple and has been lovingly decorated and furnished to retain many original features, including exposed, beamed ceilings and a beautiful Victorian fireplace in the sitting room.

The property also offers a large, well-established garden, ideal for relaxing and dining alfresco.

The town itself boasts excellent pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and craft shops, and the weekly market is well worth a visit.

With National Parkland, the Heritage Coast and historic York all within easy driving distance, this great property has plenty to offer.

About the location


Pickering 6 miles; Helmsley 5 miles.

The attractive old market town of Kirkbymoorside lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, in between the towns of Helmsley and Pickering. It is a charming place, full of Yorkshire character, and is the centre for the local farms and villages. Visitors will find a variety of shops from tea rooms, pubs and restaurants to antique shops, while there is a market day on Wednesday. The excellent walking and magnificent scenery of the National Park are close by, as are the picturesque villages of Hutton-le-Hole and Lastingham. Pickering is the base of the North York Moors Steam Railway - a ‘must do’ day out for all visitors to the area. Castle Howard, York, Whitby and the Yorkshire Coast are within easy driving distance.
