Howe Green Cottage Cottage description

Holiday home
Built from stone, this cottage retains many of its original features, such as a Victorian fireplace and exposed ceiling beams. Today, it offers sleeping accommodation for groups of up to four people, making it an idyllic retreat for a small party of friends or family. To the rear of the property is a well-maintained garden in which you can enjoy a drink or two as the sun sets in the summer months. There is even a small library of books and board games for cosy winter nights, snuggling around the fire.

Kirkbymoorside is an unmistakably Yorkshire town. Blessed with a natural bypass and surrounded by green hills, farmland and villages, it has quiet amenities and shops serving the needs of local people and visitors alike. Kirkbymoorside is mid-way between Helmsley and Pickering, and developed as the gateway to the Moors - the road through the town to the north gives access to the North Yorkshire Moors. The Kirkbymoorside Golf club is highly regarded as one of the finest in North Yorkshire and boasts some of the most unique holes you will ever encounter with breath-taking views. Known as the gateway to the North Yorkshire Moors, Kirkbymoorside is a great starting point for walks or visiting coastal towns like Whitby, Scarborough or Filey. The wealth of abbeys around Kirkbymoorside include Rosedale, Rievaulx, and Byland, all set in the charming North Yorkshire countryside and easily accessible by car.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

Gas central heating with open fire in sitting room and gas stove in dining room. Gas oven and hob, microwave, fridge, washer/dryer, TV with Freeview, DVD, radio/CD player and a small library of books, DVDs and board games. Fuel, power and fuel for open fire inc. in rent.

Mr Finch
September 2013
Howe Green Cottage was a wonderful place to spend our family holiday. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay perfect. Cottage and garden are immaculate. Very comfortable, peaceful location, ideal central location for Moors, coast and a trip to York. Perfect in every way. We cannot recommend this property enough. We would love to visit again.
Mrs Laing
July 2013
The owners appeared professional and friendly when we phoned for directions. The gardens were lovely and well maintained. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived. It was just perfect. The skater park was a god-send for the kids. It meant we got peace and quiet.
Mr Coats
July 2013
The cottage was extremely comfortable. As soon as we walked through the door, my wife and I felt it was the type of home we could live in permanently. We will certainly return at some time and would have no hesitation in recommending it as a holiday base
Mrs French
June 2013
We felt so comfortable as the cottage had a lovely atmosphere and everything had been thought of - even to milk, tea and coffee on arrival. All the places we wanted to visit were within easy reach - it was just a lovely relaxing week.

Mrs Daniels
October 2012
A very cosy welcoming cottage, very well placed. The garden was very well laid out and maintained. It felt like a home with all the extra knick-knacks and open fire and yet had all mod cons. Two reception rooms made it very versatile.
Mr Bavin
July 2012
It was in a good location for all shops and eating places.
Mr Anderson
July 2012

A nice cosy cottage that was ideal for the two of us. It was very quiet even though it was on a road. Lovely area and nice to be able to walk into the town. Kirbymoorside has butchers, bakers, deli, chemist, pubs, restaurants and take aways.
Mrs Speak

Howe Green Cottage was cosy, comfortable and very well located. The garden is lovely and it would be an excellent place to be in the summer months.
Mrs Roach
September 2011
This is a brilliantly equipped and spotlessly clean cottage with lots of child friendly touches with DVDs and lots of books. There is also a great park just over the road from the cottage. It was a 5 minute walk to the shops and 5 minutes into the countryside for fab walks! A lovely place to stay.
Mr Cronshaw
September 2011
A lovely clean, quiet cottage and well located in an excellent village. Close to both towns/ villages and the peaceful North Yorkshire Moors. The cottage felt very welcoming.
Mrs Hogg
August 2011
The cottage was spotlessly clean and there was a great attention to detail, providing everything you needed, even a pint of milk in the fridge when we arrived! Having the open fire in the evenings was a real bonus too. A beautiful area to explore, there is so much to do! We loved Eden Camp and The Rydale Folk Museum, both near by. Kirkbymoorside is very attractive and offered a great base for our holiday with the local mini-supermarket and post office. For children there is a great park just across the road from the cottage, which our 6 year old loved!
Mrs Greenwood
July 2011
Good situation - it was within a few minutes walk from Kirbymoorside with excellent eating houses.

Mrs Jupp
April 2011
Our 3rd visit to this cottage and found everything to be very good. We like the area and the position of the cottage, it's very convenient for both the village and the moors. It was a nice touch to have milk, coffee and tea to start us off and the supply of logs and coal was very welcome.
Ms Wilson
March 2011
The cottage contained everything we could possibly need or want and the cleanliness was first class. It was quiet, cosy and comfortable. Accessibility for the Moors and coast was wonderful. The supply of coal and logs was a bonus otherwise we would have had to go out and source our own at other cottages - a definite plus!!
Mrs Ball
February 2011
Lovely little cottage, generally very well appointed and loved the real fire. The location was excellent as it is ideal for exploring the coast or moors. Kirbymoorside is a great little village with good amenities. Liked being able to walk to shops and it has some excellent pubs/restaurants.

February 2011
We have a 2 year old son and really appreciated the children's DVDs/bath toys/books/crockery and cutlery that were in the cottage.

The open fire was very cosy as the evenings were cold. There was everything we needed in the cottage and it was nice and close to town but also quite central for visiting the coast and York.
Miss Turland
December 2009
The location was great, easy to get to a lot of places for days out.
Miss Peers
December 2009
It was a home, not a holiday cottage, with an amazing amount of crockery utensils. Extras such as coffee, tea and milk for use on arrival made all the difference. Very convenient for the town, yet in a quiet area.

We thought the cottage was in a great position for exploring the area. The open fire was very relaxing after a busy day exploring. I have already recommended it to family and friends.

Ms Mitchell
October 2008
The location of the cottage was perfect, a short walk to village shops and central to plenty of attractions for days out, especially the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, taking the steam train is the best way to see the beautiful scenery.

The cottage was perfectly situated. I have visited Kirbymoorside many times and it was lovely to just be round the corner from the High Street in Kirby. It is also easy to get to lots of other places in North Yorkshire. The cottage was warm and cosy and very clean with lovely comfy beds. The owner was very helpful and recommended some good places to eat. The information booklet was very useful.

Only 200 yards from the main street in Kirkbymoorside with good shopping, restaurants, pubs, street market and bus services. Great food at the Plough Inn Fadmoor only 2 miles. 10 mins drive from the Appletree at Marton which we consider the best place to eat in the North of England.
Mr Jackson

It was a beautiful, immaculate cottage and we really enjoyed our stay.
December 2016
We had a perfect stay, lovely cottage in a great area. Lots of local amenities walking distance shops, cafe's chip shop etc. The place has recently been re-carpeted and the beds were very comfortable. The open fire in the main living room was lovely to sit an enjoy on an evening with a glass of wine. Definitely would recommend and I will return again soon.
April 2014
Lovely cottage,very clean and comfortable ,lovely open fire and a lovely gas stove,lots of places to visit and lovely countryside all round a truly wonderful holiday
September 2016
Our first stay at this cottage. very clean and well fitted out. New Carpets due by Xmas after one guest(s) badly stained one/some. Garden large and well maintained by a Gardener. Washing Line no longer usable as Garden shrubbery has grown since the Photos used on various sites were taken. I suggested to the owner that a folding Dryer would be useful but a Washer Dryer is fitted. It is on a quiet road in Kirby Moorside across from a playing field which may be noisy in School Holidays. Only a 200 yard level walk to the Market Place in Kirby Moorside which has a Spar and a Co-op. No big supermarket. Several Tearooms, two of which at least have Wifi. The cottage does not have Internet or Wifi Access. We would definitely stay there again - as seasoned Cottage renters this is way up near the very top of the list of the best we have stayed at. Hate to give such a glowing reference as it may make it difficult to book it again! WE saw and heard Barn owls in the Garden and a Raptor, ? a Sparrowhawk crash landed on the lawn near to where I was sitting when it just just missed a pigeon and hit a hedge - it stayed on the lawn, regathering its dignity for a magical minute or two before taking off again. Low local light pollution makes star gazing good too! Pickering and Helsley Castles, Riveaulx and Byland Abbeys well worth visits as is Nunnington Hall (in Season) and the North York Moors Railway runs Steam from Pickering to Whitby and back. The Hutton le Hole Rural Life Museum, sounds boring, but it is fascinating - allow 3 or 4 hours there - and if you recognise lots of the exhibits like we did you know that you are older than you think! We will return!
May 2013
This cottage has all anyone needs to have a great holiday.
Alan Cumberbirch
July 2013
We were greeted with a warm welcome, including gift basket, to an immaculate, comfortable and well equipped cottage in the delightful town of Kirkbymoorside. All basic amenities are immediately available within this friendly town, which is well located to give easy access to a myriad of exciting and eye-catching destinations throughout North Yorkshire.
December 2012
We enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable cottage which was warm and had everything we needed for an ideal base. There is plentiful parking and it is only a couple of minutes from the shops and pubs. Helmsley is only a few miles away and it is within easy reach of York, Scarborough and attractions such as Castle Howard and Eden Camp which are well worth a visit. This was our second visit and may not be our last.
January 2012
We rented this cottage for the Christmas week. It was lovely and cosy. So well equipped,clean and comfortable for the two of us. Even though it was on a road it was very quiet. Kirbymoorside is a lovely market town that has a butchers, bakers, deli, chemist, pubs, restaurants and takeaways and is only a 5 min walk from the cottage.
September 2011
The cottage was very comfortable and clean with a gorgeous garden and in a in a quiet location. It was a 5 minute walk away from the village which had all the amenities you would require.The towns of Pickering and Helmsley were just a short drive away. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.
September 2011
Very happy with our booking, we had a comfortable stay
September 2010
We loved the cottage. It took us a little while to find the fridge but all's well that ends well (it was hidden in a cupboard). Scenery was beautiful and the garden was immaculate. A lovely, quiet place on the edge of Kirkbymoorside. The only slight annoyance was the shower was rather weak and we couldn't really get a good flow of hot water. Other than that, a perfect holiday cottage in a beautiful town. Try the fish and chips from The Lemon Tree - superb. Overall, a wonderful holiday with easy access to some great tourist attractions. Recommended!
December 2009
Excellent service and always obliging to help with further information. The cottage was very clean, and the bed extremely comfy. The garden was immaculately kept and a pleasure to sit in. The town had all available shops required and very close by. The only gripe we had was the plumbing in the cottage. It had two toilets and neither worked very well.
December 2009
The cottage was lovely.Set in a very pretty village with all the amenities we needed.We stayed in Feburary but the cottage was warm and cosy. Our 2 boys really enjoyed themselves and didnt mention their computers for a week. The cottage had a great kitchen and the bedrooms were really nice. Our only complaint was that the dining chairs were a bit ricketty!! We enjoyed days out in Scarborough and Whitby.The moors were amazing with snow on them.
Mr Coats
July 2014
As with last year, the Cottage was a perfect base for our holiday. This year we took our daughter, son in law and 11 month old grandson with us. The garden and especially the park opposite were a big hit. We would have no hesitation in recommending the cottage as a great place to stay.
Mr Parker
September 2014
This was our second holiday in Howe Green Cottage - it's delightful and just a few minutes walk from the Market Town centre - a quiet area away from the bustle! Highly recommended.
Mrs Peek
October 2014
A beautiful cottage and felt very homely. Will certainly be going back and would highly recommend it. Nice to be near village and near to other places of interest.
Miss Campbell
March 2015
The perfect cottage to spend the week in. It was very clean, very comfortable and in an excellent location. There is also a very useful box of leaflets/info and walks in the area which we used several times. The owner was very helpful and friendly when arranging the key collection which was simple and hassle free. We would definitely come and stay again!
Mr Macrodimitris
May 2015
Very cosy accommodation, it was well equipped and the location is excellent. The garden is lovely and having the playing field so close by was great for the children. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
Mr Roberts
July 2015
The cottage was excellent in every way and the garden was exceptionally beautiful. The cottage is close to the centre of Kirkbymoorside, (with a choice of pubs and restaurants) in a quiet road with a green area opposite.
Mr Howard
July 2015
A lovely Cottage in a very convenient location. Close to the amenities but far enough away to maintain peace and quiet. A perfect base for exploring the area.
Mr Marson
March 2016
It was that good that we have booked again.
Mr Ross
June 2016

Mr Maxwell
