Fantastic place to stay

By James on 22-Mar-2022

Forge Cottage was a fantastic place to stay and was a perfect base to explore parts of Yorkshire. The cottage was clean, extremely well equipped and had all the pleasures to transport you to a country cosy retreat. Garden was superbly sized and was a treat for my 2 year old to play around. Thank you.

A lovely comfortable cottage. Highly recommended.

By Judith on 24-Sep-2021

We found the cottage very comfortable and ideally situated to access the local facilities in Helmsley and it's surrounding countryside. We appreciated the provision of books, jigsaws and games and the garden provides a lovely place to enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

Lovely cottage, great location!

By Sue on 10-Sep-2021

We stayed here in September 2021 for a week. The situation of the property is great, an easy level 10 minute walk to the centre where all the lovely shops are, also the Castle and Walled gardens. The cottage was warm, comfortable and very cosy. Everything you needed was there and the garden with seating was gorgeous - private, enclosed and well looked after. We enjoyed listening to the birds out there throughout the day. Bedrooms were all a good size, both bathrooms great, although I had a problem with the lock on one of them! The owner called us early in the stay to check everything was okay... nice touch! We were a little disappointed with the Welcome pack though, and thought it could have had more content and variety. All in all, for the quality of the cottage and it's convenient position, I would definitely stay here again.
