Sparkling clean14 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

A secluded getaway. Night life only extends to the twit twooing of the owls. Nestled into the forest with a beck trickling by. It's perfect for those wishing to log out and explore the countryside on foot. Tons of walks including a gorgeous 4 mile round walk taking in 11th-centuary Rievaulx Abbey ruins and a cup of tea at the cafe along the way. The chocolate box town of Helmsley is just five miles away with walled garden, castle ruins, shops, restaurants and amenities.

You won't find a more peaceful and cosy retreat if you tried. Katy's place is nestled in a quiet valley with only the sound of the stream and the wind in the trees for company. The cottage itself is tastefully furnished and has everything you need. Five stars.

Such a lovely spot in the most gorgeous valley. Fabulous walks on your doorstep and Helmsley only a 10 min drive away. A well equipped kitchen has now been installed which isn't shown in the pictures. Such a lovely couple too and super friendly and helpful.
