Perfectly located in the idyllic setting of the North Yorkshire Dales, on the edge of Barningham and Holgate Estate’s grouse moor and wildlife conservation area.

Perfectly located in the idyllic setting of the North Yorkshire Dales, on the edge of Barningham and Holgate Estate’s grouse moor and wildlife conservation area.

This delightful cottage is situated in the tiny and remote hamlet of Helwith in the North Yorkshire Dales on the historic Barningham and Holgate Estate. Helwith Cottage is a standalone property with far reaching views of the Dales. It is surrounded by grouse moorland, grazing sheep and a vast array of wildlife. Helwith Manor Farm sits 100 yards below Helwith Cottage. The cottage was once the vicar’s house for the now demolished church, which comprised a thriving congregation when the hamlet was inhabited in the 18th and 19th centuries due to the lead and tin mining activities in the area.

Helwith Cottage is decorated in keeping with its traditional surroundings with a mixture of antique and contemporary furniture using fabrics from Colefax & Fowler, and Linwood, giving it a warm and natural ambience. Lighting includes pieces from the Jim Lawrence collection.

The cottage is surrounded by stunning views over to Braithwaite’s Gill, Hurst and Arkengarthdale Moors, Telfit Moor, Barningham and Holgate moors. Helwith beck, running through the valley below, is crossed via a small bridge which featured in the opening credits of the famous ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ TV series. The nearby Manor House Farm with a tea garden, offers cream teas to walkers and cyclists enjoying the wonderful walks in the area.

Marske, 5 miles away, is the nearest village, and a further 5 miles from Richmond. It is located on Marske Beck, just before the river’s confluence with the River Swale. Close by, Barningham is a picturesque village between Richmond and Barnard Castle. Named ’Best Small Village’ in 2010 by Durham Rural Community Council, Barningham has a village green, a park, a tea room and a village hall, and is on the edge of the moors stretching westwards to Cumbria, making this a good base for walking the local dales and hills.

There is a wide range of activities to pursue in the area including walking, cycling, fell running, birdwatching, wildlife spotting, fishing, shooting and stalking. History lovers can also enjoy the rich Bronze Age heritage that can be found at remote sites on Barningham Moor, including Chieftan Burial Mounds and the Cup and Ring Stones. Visit historic market towns including Barnard Castle, 6 miles, offering many shops, cafés and restaurants, as well as a large supermarket. Other attractions in Barnard Castle include the Bowes Museum, Witham Arts and Cultural Centre, Rokeby Hall and The Chocolate Fair. Richmond, 10 miles, is also worth a visit where you will find Richmond Castle, and a large cobbled market square surrounded by shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants. Other attractions include Auckland Castle, Raby Castle, High Force Waterfall, The Forbidden Corner at Leyburn, Duncombe Park, Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Gardens, which can all be reached in under an hour. Pre-made dishes, artisan breads, cakes and puddings are available by request from the Coach House tea room caterers, for your arrival or throughout your stay, and groceries for the fridge can also be pre-ordered. If you prefer to dine out, there’s a local village pub just a short drive away, which serves food daily, along with a selection of real ales, beers, wines, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages. For a little pampering, why not try some spa treatments at a nearby hotel? Shop and restaurant 6 miles, pub 6½ miles.

    Fabulous, comfortable cottage in an idyllic, away-from-it-all location, which was very relaxing. Lots of lovely walks from the door. We were lucky to have great weather and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.
