Forge Cottage is a charming stone-built detached property situated in the beautiful market town of Helmsley. The spacious conservatory looks out onto the good sized enclosed mature back garden which has a small pond and a patio where you can enjoy a meal or glass of wine after a day exploring the North York Moors. The cottage has been furnished and decorated to a high standard; it is very well equipped and has all modern comforts. Original features include wooden beams, Yorkshire style sliding windows and an open fire. Forge Cottage is full of charm and character and is an attractive choice for a self-catering holiday. There is off-street parking for three cars at the property.

A stroll of about five minutes will bring you to the centre of the pretty town of Helmsley. Here you will find a great variety of tea-shops, restaurants and pubs offering a choice of cuisine. The town is centred around a market square where independent shops offer a delightful change from the usual high street retail chains. Visitor attractions in the town include Duncombe Park which has several events throughout the year and a wonderful estate parkland which is perfect for walking and a Bird of Prey centre. Helmsley Castle is a fascinating Norman Castle and Helmsley Walled Garden is a delight for all gardeners. The Cleveland Way National Trail starts in Helmsley but if you don't fancy walking the full 109 miles, why not walk the first few miles as far as Rievaulx Abbey, the ruins of a Cistercian Monastery dating from the 1100s.

Area Information

Famous for its character and charm, the historic market town of Helmsley is situated on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and the Valley of Pickering. It has retained its medieval layout and the Market Place is surrounded by some interesting period stone-built cottages and many charming traditional shops and tearooms. In the middle of the Market Place there is a statue of William Duncombe, 2nd Baron Feversham, whose family has been associated with Helmsley since 17th century. Helmsley with the nearby area offers a fabulous choice of places to visit, such as ruins of the Helmsley Castle built in 1120, Duncombe Park - the beautiful dwelling of the Barons of Feversham, the International Centre for Birds of Prey, Helmsley Walled Garden, Rievaulx Abbey, Nunnington Hall and the Sutton Bank. The 110 miles long Cleveland Way National Trail starts in Helmsley. The beautiful towns of York, Thirsk and Pickering are an easy drive away.
