Ivy cottage is situated overlooking a pleasant green a two minute walk from Helmsley town centre. The accommodation is suitable for all ages. The cottage has three bedrooms, a double, twin and a single. The bathroom has recently been refurbished. There is a conservatory situated at the rear of the cottage. Stairgates are available for the safety of young children, as well as a high hair and travel cot which can be made available upon request. Helmsley is an ideal place for both families and walkers. There is plenty to explore with a ruined castle in Helmsley and several abbeys near by. Helmsley has an excellent market on a Friday as well as craft fairs on certain Saturdays throughout the year.
We are a couple who enjoyed staying in Helmsley so much that we decided to buy a place there. We hope you enjoy staying there as much as we do.

We had a weeks holiday in Helmsley in 2007 and loved the town and surrounding area that we decided to buy a cottage there.
Helmsley is a pretty, bustling, thriving market town with a variety of tea rooms, restaurants and individual shops.
The countryside surrounding the town is magnificent.
We find that there is something to suit everyone from young families to serious walkers in the area.
My husband John and I had a really lovely time in Helmsley, which is really picturesque,and your cottage is beautiful. It is ideally situated for the market place which we visited each evening. There was plenty to see and do and the views along the way were stunning.

This is a spacious, comfortable and immaculately clean home set in a village immediately adjacent to the North Yorkshire Moors and close to Whitby and York. It also has a lovely garden.
The facilities and the condition of this house are of a high standard. It is a short walk to all provision needs, shopping and restaurants in Helmsley centre. Parking is ample.
We enjoyed a beautiful circular walk to Riveaulx Abbey and other walks in the Moors themselves. Day trips to Whitby and York were easily managed. We can recommend lunch at Ampleforth School.
We could easily have stayed another week or more. Thanks to Sarah for maintaining such a high standard.
