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


This holiday home boasts delightful walks, a cosy interior and many places to enjoy an evening out with friends - truly something for everyone to enjoy.

Peacefully located in the centre of the delightful market town of Helmsley, this traditional stone built cottage-style property enjoys a contemporary interior, high specification finishes and private parking. The impressive open plan living area has a cosy wood burner that is perfect for chilly evenings, and on a warm summer’s night, open the French doors that lead out to an enclosed patio garden, and relax with a large glass of wine and your favourite book. Luxury extras include, a Sonos surround sound system, and both bathrooms having inbuilt televisions!
On the doorstep are award-winning eateries, gastro pubs and numerous interesting shops and boutiques. Helmsley boasts an Art Centre with live events and film programmes, 5 acres of beautiful 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. During the summer months there is an open-air swimming pool.
The surrounding areas offer wonderful walking and cycling. The Cleveland Way starts out from Helmsley and the first part of this leads to the magnificent ruins of Rievaulx Abbey. Nestled close to the North Yorkshire Moors, Helmsley is well placed to enjoy all that Yorkshire has to offer including the famous steam train which departs from Pickering, 13 miles away, and transports visitors through stunning scenery to the ancient fishing port of Whitby. Flamingo Land and ‘Go Ape’ in Dalby Forest appeal to all ages and the spectacular coastline is within an hour’s drive. Days out can be enjoyed at the great houses of Castle Howard and Nunnington Hall. The vibrant, medieval city of York, 24 miles, is steeped in history and brimming with attractions, including the iconic Minster and the National Railway Museum. Shop, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    Ideal holiday cottage in a perfect location. Comfortably furnished and not cluttered, very clean. Wooden flooring on the ground floor perfect for dogs. All 3 bedrooms are good sized and have ensuite bathrooms which was great for 6 adults. Loved the TV in the bathroom! We had a fantastic Christmas.

    The cottage is well appointed and tasteful, built with modern features & technology which was intuitive to use. A major plus point in relation to the cottage was that even though the listing did not include a high-chair or cot when we booked, the owners were able to provide them for us on request. This was a really big help for us, so they get my thanks and a big thumbs up for the service.

    We were visiting Helmsley for a family wedding. The cottage was brilliant just what we needed and only round the corner from the black swan where the wedding was. Thank you.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thanks for the review. Thanks too for letting us know about the Cafetiere, this has now been replaced. Unfortunately, the original Cafetiere, was broken, unbeknown to us, by a previous guest.

    Rye Cottage is a stunning property in a beautiful location. The finish in the house is first class. Everything you could need has been provided along with some extras - tv's in the bathrooms! Helmsley is a lovely place with, again, everything you could need. We enjoyed 2 weeks of beautiful weather also so made it a great holiday.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for the positive feedback. Glad you enjoyed the house and Helmsley.

    The cottage is new and modern and was very cosy (we stayed during a blizzard). There was underfloor heating and a log burner so the downstairs was very warm and the bedrooms were as well. There was enough space for 6 of us (and a Labrador) and the cottage was in a very quiet location (all you could hear was church bells). The location was great - quite near the centre of Helmsley and handy for the Cleveland Way. I would definitely go back (but maybe in warmer weather!)

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you, appreciate the review and glad you had a nice stay at Rye Cottage.
