About Mrs Amanda Welch
Hi I am a busy mother of 3 boys, dogs, cats and ponies. I spend a lot of my time on the rugby touchline or other sporting fixtures. When I get the chance I run or ride accompanied by the dog, swim, cycle and compete in the odd triathlon. I am always on the go! We moved to Yorkshire when my this son was on the way as we fell in live with the county and have now been here 12 years. We do not plan to leave!
Mrs Amanda Welch purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Mrs Amanda Welch chose Helmsley
It started because my Mum who was living in Italy full time wanted to come back to England for 6 months in the winter. I arranged somewhere for her to rent for three months and chose Helmsley as I thought she would love it. She did and in fact she loved it so much that we purchased a property that we could let out in the summer and she could live in in the winter. We thoroughly enjoyed doing the holiday lets so ended up purchasing the property next door when it became available. We have great pride in our properties and love leaving them immaculate for the next guests. We hope you enjoy staying in them.
What makes this Cottage unique
One of the keys things mum realised when she was renting another property in Helmsley was that the property must be within 1-2 minutes from the centre and had to have off street parking, as there is nothing worse than coming back and not being able to park outside your house!

Comfortable accommodation in a convenient location.
Well equipped and comfortable. Nice and quiet with a great view of the church. The garden is secure and dog friendly. There is a quality vacuum cleaner which is important as I do like to leave the place clean and tidy. Helmsley has loads of eating options and a decent co-op. Great walks from the door. Our favourite was the Cleaveland Way to Rievaulx Abbey.
A decent place to stay and a very enjoyable holiday. Thank you.
Four relaxing weeks
This is our second long visit to the property. It is in superb condition with everything you would need. Very spacious. Nice to have off street parking. This location is 100 yards from the center of Helmsley and all its shops, its theater, public transport etc. It is however very quiet. The road is a dead end with only four or five houses -- so no traffic, no parked cars. No houses behind the house and a no obstruction to the view out the front towards the castle and hills. Garden is quite large, attractive, and very secluded (and very secure -- if you have kids or animals). Helmsley as a town is the nicest location in the Moors area and is also handy for visits to York. Owner is delightful and helpful in all things. We are a retired couple resident in the USA. We often rent holiday homes in Europe. This is the best and we hope to be back..
My overall impression was first class
The property is in very good order with a lovely garden. The access arrangements were without fault. If I had to be picky I would say there was very few power points downstairs so13A extenders were essential, these are provided. The WiFi worked well but dropped out once, it was possibly a faulty connection at the front door (gave it a wiggle) . The parking was adequate for two cars and extra spaces were available across the street. The proximity to the centre of town is a real plus. The cycling in this area is second to none (esp if you like hills). The choice of restaurants in the area is more than adequate all within walking distance. My favourite pub is the Black Sawn Hotel. The owner is very easy to deal with. I had some initial problems with the Home and Away web site but were resolved after registering with the site. I would definitely use this property again.
Beautiful house in a lovely area. House extremely well equipped and clean. Amanda has thought of everything!
Perfect holiday cottage
Superb cottage in an ideal location, minutes away from the market square, in a peaceful cul de sac. It's comfortable,spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you need.There is an enclosed garden, perfect for us and our dog. Highly recommend it and hoping to return for a longer stay.
A home from home. Perfect for our needs
This was the perfect property located in the beautiful town of Helmsley. The house had everything we needed for our family of four and the town was handy for meals out, takeaways and shopping. Will definitely be returning.
The International Centre for Birds of Prey is situated in Duncombe Park only a short walking distance from the house. This is open daily from 1st February to 24 December 10am to 5.30pm (or dusk if earlier) There is the Helmsley Heated Open Air Swimming Pool also a short walk away. Helmsley Art Centre shows films and hosts Art Exhibitions. Slightly further afield is the Ryedale Folk Museum, Castle Howard, North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Yorkshire Lavender, (open March to October 10am-5pm) and countless other attractions too numerous to mention. It goes without saying, that this is the most perfect spot to start out for the day walking close by from the house or up on the Yorkshire Moors . Stop for a relaxing lunch at the many pubs situated in the villages or take a picnic. A great way to unwind!
