Property Details

The Space
Holt Cottage has a spacious open-plan living, kitchen and dining area. Featuring a neutral colour scheme and large windows, there is a tranquil and welcoming feel. The living area includes a sofa, two armchairs and a TV so it’s the perfect place to unwind during your stay. For autumn and winter, the cottage is cosy as it is heated by a Biomass boiler.

Split-level in design, the kitchen and dining area can be found up a few stairs. Fully equipped, the kitchen boasts a dishwasher, washing machine, oven, hob, kettle, microwave, toaster and refrigerator so you’ll have everything you could need for a self-catering break. Ideal for family meals, the dining area has a large wooden dining table and matching padded chairs.

The property boasts three bedrooms. The master bedroom includes a double bed and an ensuite shower room with a WC and wash basin. The second and third bedrooms are twins, and also boast their own ensuite bathrooms, both of which with bathtubs and overhead showers.

Valley View Farm Holiday Cottages are set on a working farm in the village of Old Byland. There are stunning views of the countryside everywhere you look, and the site is the perfect base for walkers and cyclists looking to explore North Yorkshire with its beautiful scenery and wildlife.

A short drive away is the picturesque town of Helmsley. The only market town in the North York Moors National Park, it is a charming place to stay and provides a fantastic base for exploring the countryside.

The town has a bustling market square, specialist boutiques, Michelin-starred restaurants and even a microbrewery so you can really make the most of your staycation! You won’t find high street chains here, just independent stores selling everything from designer clothes, jewellery, homeware, books and gifts. When it comes to eating and drinking, you’ll have lots to choose from! Whether you would like fine dining, cosy tea rooms, fish and chips or just a quiet drink - Helmsley will have the perfect spot for you.

There are also plenty of attractions on offer. Helmsley’s Walled Garden sits beneath the ruins of Helmsley Castle and spans 5-acres with vibrant flowers, vegetables and fruit growing throughout the season. You can also visit Helmsley Arts Centre and the National Centre for Birds of Prey.

For eating, there are two Michelin Star restaurants close by - The Star in Harome and The Black Swan in Oldstead.
