Fox Cottage - 24 High Street Helmsley, North Yorkshire, YO62 5AG


Welcome to Fox Cottage in Helmsley, North Yorkshire. Beautifully renovated in 2013, this Grade II listed cottage is situated a short stroll from the picturesque market square. Retaining much of its original eighteenth century character, it features beamed ceilings, an open fire and lots of period charm. Accommodating up to four people, the cottage is wonderfully cosy but there are one or two low doorways. It is well equipped, attractively decorated and furnished to a high standard. Fox Cottage is conveniently located in one of the prettiest and well-loved rural towns in the country.

A thank you to all our customers and friends

The empty weeks were used for painting and decorating, the installation of a new shower and other improvements. Our sincere thanks to all of you who booked holidays at Fox Cottage in 2019! In 2020, we were hit, like everyone else, with the effects of COVID-19. We reopened in July and made a strong recovery. Again, our thanks to all of you who decided to travel and took a holiday at the cottage.
