Ideal break with our dogs
We have just returned from a week's break at Pegs Cottage in Pockley, close to Helmsley. It was a perfect break for us and our two dogs who were secure in the grounds of the accommodation and able to explore the whole garden area. We had our own parking space which was close to the cottage and away from the road. Tonia made us all very welcome and we felt at ease when she told us our dogs were free to explore the whole garden area which was secure throughout. Our dogs loved exploring Tonia's garden as well as the small orchard where they could run around or have a leisurely sniff! The cottage is lovely, very cosy and clean with all amenities. The log burner warms the whole cottage in minutes for cosy evenings if the temperature outside is cold. The kitchen is equipped with everything you might need if you choose to prepare your own meals including different serving dishes and plates. We were provided with milk, tea, sugar and coffee as well as bedding and towels and cleaning products. The lounge flooring is wooden so easy to clean if it is wet outside and you have children or pets. The double bedroom is cosy with plenty of room to store all your clothes and the en-suite has a spacious shower with a heated towel rail. We bought fresh eggs from across the road which were probably laid the same morning we cooked them. Helmsley is a short drive from the cottage where there are a couple of small supermarkets for food shopping, pubs, deli's and many other shops and attractions. We sampled a meal from the Helmsley Spice Indian Restaurant during our stay and would highly recommend this as well as Hunters of Helmsley for fresh local produce including cheeses and pastries. We will certainly return for a visit in the future.

Great little cottage with country charm.
Good location only a few minutes away from Helmsley with its quaint shops and vibrant Friday markets and from the abbey ruins at Rievaulx and Castle Howard with its extensive gardens and interesting history as well as access to walks on the Moors. The cottage is well quipped with all amenities including washing machine and the hostess is nearby if any help is required. We enjoyed our stay in this quiet little village with plenty of interest in the surrounding neighbourhood. The cottage was clean, comfortable and had a welcoming ambience.

It was a lovely peaceful location in a quiet village/hamlet. The cottage had everything you needed and as we took our two dogs the garden was ideal as it is large and enclosed. It was a lovely relaxing holiday and we hope to return to this part of Yorkshire as there is lots to see in the area.

We liked the situation. Although we didn't use the garden because of the weather, in the summer it would be a huge bonus. There was a good selection of books about the area and DVDs for cold, wet evenings. In all we had a very good time in Pegs Cottage.
Mr Stevenson

Lovely, spotless, modernised cottage in a delightful area, ideal for exploring the Yorkshire North Moors. Very warm welcome by owner. Very effective heating during the cold snap we experienced, comprising gas central heating and a gas fire log effect log burner.
