Holly-Garth Holiday Cottage – Home

Helmsley is a beautiful little town and is the gateway to the North York Moors. There are many opportunities for walkers, cyclists and general holiday makers to explore this stunning area. The Cleveland Way begins in Helmsley and the awe-inspiring ruins of Rievaulx Abbey are a couple of hours walk away. Close to the town are the magnificent Helmsley Castle, the Walled Garden, Duncombe Park and The International Birds of Prey Centre. There are myriad shops, restaurants and pubs in and around the town. In a quiet street but close to the square, Holly-Garth is a Luxury Holiday Cottage. It is a perfect and relaxing base from which to explore all that Helmsley and this part of Yorkshire have to offer.

As owners, we take a pride in the finish and standard that we offer to our customers. We constantly strive to improve, be it with replacement furnishings, fresh decor, or major works like the new bathrooms that were installed in 2021. Our wish is for people to be surprised and delighted when they enter the property, and we also want our clients to feel totally at home.
