About Mrs Amanda Welch

Hi I am a busy mother of 3 boys, dogs, cats and ponies. I spend a lot of my time on the rugby touchline or other sporting fixtures. When I get the chance I run or ride accompanied by the dog, swim, cycle and compete in the odd triathlon. I am always on the go!

We moved to Yorkshire when my this son was on the way as we fell in live with the county and have now been here 12 years. We do not plan to leave!

Mrs Amanda Welch purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Mrs Amanda Welch chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

It started because my Mum who was living in Italy full time wanted to come back to England for 6 months in the winter. I arranged somewhere for her to rent for three months and chose Helmsley as I thought she would love it. She did and in fact she loved it so much that we purchased a property that we could let out in the summer and she could live in in the winter. We thoroughly enjoyed doing the holiday lets so ended up purchasing the property next door when it became available. We have great pride in our properties and love leaving them immaculate for the next guests. We hope you enjoy staying in them.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the keys things mum realised when she was renting another property in Helmsley was that the property must be within 1-2 minutes from the centre and had to have off street parking, as there is nothing worse than coming back and not being able to park outside your house!

Fabulous property in a great area to explore

  • 5 of 5

Really impressed by the quality and cleanliness of this property in Helmsley. It has everything you would need and is located less than 2 minutes walk from the centre of Helmsley which is itself a lovely village with plenty of great places to eat and drink. The enclosed rear garden was a real bonus. We will definately be staying again!

Great location, great place.

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very clean and comfortable cottage. A very well-equipped kitchen was the perfect place to return to after days spent buying beautiful produce from the lovely delis and bakeries in the area. Helmsley is a wonderful village with everything you need: shops, restaurants, a castle and even a spa. Would definitely bring my family here again.

Absolutely first class.

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed with plenty of appliances and utensils. Spotlessly clean. Comfortable beds. just a few minutes walk from the centre of the lovely old town of Helmsley which itself is ideally situated for exploring the North Yorks Moors and within easy reach of York (use the park and ride) and other towns.

Would thoroughly recommend.

Super cottage for holiday break

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well-equipped, and in a very quiet location yet only a couple of minutes walk from the town centre. Helmsley itself is quaint with lovely shops, good cafes and restaurants and is located in stunning countryside. An ideal holiday let for country lovers.

Further Details:

The International Centre for Birds of Prey is situated in Duncombe Park only a short walking distance from the house. This is open daily from 1st February to 24 December 10am to 5.30pm (or dusk if earlier) There is the Helmsley Heated Open Air Swimming Pool also a short walk away. Helmsley Art Centre shows films and hosts Art Exhibitions. Slightly further afield is the Ryedale Folk Museum, Castle Howard, North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Yorkshire Lavender, (open March to October 10am-5pm) and countless other attractions too numerous to mention. It goes without saying, that this is the most perfect spot to start out for the day walking close by from the house or up on the Yorkshire Moors . Stop for a relaxing lunch at the many pubs situated in the villages or take a picnic. A great way to unwind!
