This two bedroom house is able to sleep up to four people and is located close to the village of Helmsley.

This traditional, stone-built, cottage is a semi-detached property that adjoins the owner’s house on a working livestock farm near Old Byland. Just seven miles from the market town of Helmsley, this cottage is set in a peaceful location within the National Park, and offers far reaching views across the North York Moors. With its open plan living area, the property is composed of two bedrooms - one double and one twin - a fitted kitchen, dining area and lounge with electric fire. The structure itself retains a great deal of charm and period features include ancient low ceiling beams and pine doors. In addition to the indoor space there is a large, lawned garden outside, as well as off-road parking.


Great area, lovely owners
Cottage overall was fine, although double mattress needs replaced and some small glasses needed as pint ones are too big. There is no freezer although owners let us share theirs. Must mention cleanliness, it was immaculate and good quality bedding

I had a wonderful time at Wethercote Cottage. The owners were lovely, helpful people. I will definitely consider staying here again.
Ms Beckley

The cottage was in a quiet country location which was to our liking and the owner's were very welcoming.
