Fox Cottage - 24 High Street Helmsley, North Yorkshire, YO62 5AG


Welcome to Fox Cottage in Helmsley, North Yorkshire. Beautifully renovated in 2013, this Grade II listed cottage is situated a short stroll from the picturesque market square. Retaining much of its original eighteenth century character, it features beamed ceilings, an open fire and lots of period charm. Accommodating up to four people, the cottage is wonderfully cosy but there are one or two low doorways. It is well equipped, attractively decorated and furnished to a high standard. Fox Cottage is conveniently located in one of the prettiest and well-loved rural towns in the country.

A thank you to all our customers and friends


Our sincere thanks to all of you who booked holidays at Fox Cottage in 2021 and 2022.


We were hit hard, like everyone else, with the effects of COVID-19. Two national lockdowns meant we were forced to close for large parts of 2020. We reopened in July 2020 and and then were hit by a third lockdown at the start of 2021. We reopened at the end of April 2021 and your support has meant that we have made a strong recovery. Our thanks to all of you who took a holiday at the cottage. Your support is very much appreciated!
