    Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your wonderful house “The firs”! The owner contact with Kate was warm and very welcoming. The house was well equipped with all the necessary things we need for our stay. The weather was very “British” but perfect for the fun diving adventures and hiking in the Yorkshire national park, for crabbing at Withby and driving with – our son says – The Harry Potter Train. I would highly recommend the house equipment with dish washer, washing machine, lovely and quiet bed rooms with comfortable beds and large property around the house. The house is placed in the hart of the small village Helmsley, with short way in the morning to the bakery, food market and sometimes the fresh market in Helmsley with fruits, vegetables, meat and cheese. Thanks for your hospitality and sharing your home with us.

    We spent a lovely 4 nights at The Firs. The property is spacious and well appointed, with high quality furnishings and decor. We had fantastic weather so spent much of our time outside the house, with sunny or shady spots throughout the garden and patio areas. After a wet weekend camping prior to our stay, the washing machine was very welcome! Helmsley itself is lovely and well within walking distance. There's plenty to do locally but it's a great place to base yourself for trips further out in the area.
