We originally bought Ivy Cottage as a holiday home, as a retreat from the stresses and pressures of every -day life, in a location which combines natural beauty, tranquility and all the attractions of a unique  market town. Having refurbished it to a high standard,we are pleased  now to offer it to like- minded people who enjoy and appreciate this magnificent National Park location.

To ensure that your stay is trouble-free, Sarah, who lives locally, looks after the cottage and is available to deal with any issues that might crop up during your visit. 

Helmsley is a small, bustling market town situated on the southern boundary of the North York Moors National Park. In and around the town square area is an impressive array of shops, tea-rooms, restaurants, hotels (one with a leisure spa) and licensed premises. Within the town there is also a castle (EH), a recently restored walled garden, a heated outdoor swimming pool and just outside is situated  Duncombe Park, the ancestral home of the  Feversham family. Apart from the magnificent countryside of the National Park, other attractions such as Riveaux Abbey (EH), Nunington Hall (NT), steam railway at PickeringFlamingo Land and Castle Howard are close by. WhitbyScarborough  and Robin Hood’s Bay on the Yorkshire coast are a short drive away.
