English Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


Attention to detail and fabulous furnishings enhance this luxurious, homely retreat which is set amidst rolling countryside.

Traditional character and contemporary design combine to great effect in this truly charming holiday cottage. Renovated to a high specification, Poppy Cottage provides stunning accommodation for the most discerning visitors. Imagine curling up on the comfortable sofas in the cosy living room by the glowing fire or preparing a meal in the spacious kitchen, flooded with natural light from the bi-folding doors leading out to the lovely, enclosed garden. The interior furnishings are exquisite, with an abundance of luxury Abraham Moon fabrics, created at a Yorkshire woollen mill. Throughout the cottage, the exceptional attention to detail will surprise and delight. This is a perfect base from which to enjoy the quaint market town of Helmsley, being just minutes from renowned restaurants, superb delicatessens and quality shops. In this idyllic location, amongst rolling countryside on the edge of Ryedale, Helmsley has an art centre with live-event and film programmes, five acres of walled gardens set beside the backdrop of the castle ruins, and Duncombe Park, a country estate and home to the International Centre of Birds of Prey. The area is popular for walking, touring and country pursuits. From the popular market town of Pickering, 13 miles, the North York Moors steam train transports visitors to the fishing port of Whitby. Visit the abbey ruins at Rievaulx and Byland, stately homes at Nunnington Hall and Castle Howard and - not to be missed - is the ancient walled city of York which is less than an hour’s drive, steeped in history and brimming with attractions. Shops, pubs and restaurants 500 yards.

    The cottage is beautiful and very well equipped. The owner Debbie was there to greet us and left a very nice welcome pack for us. We were lucky with the weather which meant we were able to have breakfast in the garden most days. This cottage would be hard to beat and we would certainly book it again

    Poppy cottage was absolutely a great place to stay. Everything had been so carefully thought out. It had everything you needed plus more every effort has been made to make it one of the best cottages we have ever hired. The garden was also fantastic went away with ideas for our own gardens. We also had fantastic weather which meant most of our meals were eaten outside. A fantastic week.
