“Lovely cottage, excellently located within walking distance from Helmsley. We only stayed two nights but the cottage is extremely well equipped if you were staying longer. Leaving milk in the fridge was a nice touch. Thanks for a great stay”
“We had a wonderful weekend at Frankel Cottage. The house itself is beautiful and the setting is absolutely stunning. It is spotlessly clean. We were in love with it from the minute we stepped out the car. One of the most peaceful places I've stayed in, despite being a working stud farm. Waking each morning to rolling fields, horses and birds chirping was bliss. The farm is just under a mile outside Helmsley town centre but we walked in and out all the time no probs (so we could visit a few locals and have a wee drink without the car!)"
Absolutely stunning place to stay. Rural but close to the town and easy striking distance to loads of places in North Yorkshire. Hospitality was second to none, easy check in and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was beautiful, very clean and with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Highly recommended.
What a fabulous place! Set on a stud farm, with spectacular views, we enjoyed a fantastic long weekend with parents & our young toddler, who loved seeing the animals (particularly the lambs & the foal who was born during our stay). Lovely big garden which was enclosed for our little one to run around and play games safely. The house is very close to Helmsley, which is a beautiful village with nice restaurants & a couple of pubs. Lots to do in the area, including a couple of excellent national trust properties & a national park. The owners left lots of leaflets for nearby attractions in the house - very helpful! The house is very child friendly - plenty of plastic plates, cutlery etc & the owners also lent us a high chair, travel cot & buggy! Touches like this make it a lot easier when travelling with a young family! Thank you so much for such a wonderful stay - we will most certainly be back!
The location is just fantastic. Really lovely views, so secure and just a wonderful setting. The entire place exudes friendliness and was as well equipped as any place we've been to. It was also exceptionally clean. Just can';t fault the place or speak highly enough of it.
Could not have chosen a more fabulous cottage for location. The cottage far exceeded our expectations and is much larger than we thought. The working Stud farm is beautiful with wonderful views and very friendly staff. The cottage was really big and with 2 teenagers we were all able to spread out. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area, as its a great location for visiting coast or the moors. We really do hope to come back again one day. Thank you. Shirley
Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Our hostess was very helpful and easy to work with. I would definitely stay again.
Thank you for a lovely stay. Very comfy with charming decor. The whole cottage felt very cosy and although very close to Helmsley felt as if you were right out in the countryside. Excellent sleep on very comfy beds. Highly recommend! We will be returning 🙂
...in a great location.
Lovely cottage in a fantastic secluded spot overlooking Helmsley. Warm, spotless and just what we were looking for. We'll be back!
Really beautiful place, great location for what North Yorkshire has to offer. Kind and welcoming hosts.
Mike and Liz were outstanding hosts, the place is beautiful, with such amazing views of the surrounding countryside. The kids loved it here, even seeing a "baby horse" being born from their bedroom window - not something you get to see every day 🙂 Would thoroughly recommend!
My husband and his friend had a weekend of cycling up in Helmsley and had a wonderful stay at Natalie's place. He said the location was great, accommodation was very clean and well appointed, there was room in the shed for the bikes and they had a brilliant break. Thanks very much Natalie!
An excellent cottage property offering seclusion and village life. Luckily for Natalie she has a property in beautiful North Yorkshire. That is pure luck, but keeping the property in tip top condition is a big part of the charm of the place also. Well done Natalie and thank you for preparing the place so wonderfully for us. We had an excellent weekend!
Frankel Cottage is set in a lovely, peaceful stud farm overlooking Helmsley. The views are stunning. The house is decorated to a very high standard and the place is spotless. There is a garden at the rear of the property with table and chairs when we sat and enjoyed the August sunshine. Natalie was a great host and her communication was excellent.

The cottage is in an utterly delightful setting. Our host was very prompt with replying to all our queries. The welcome hamper awaiting us on our arrival was a great touch. The cottage was very clean, well equipped and just a short drive into Helmsley. Would highly recommend a stay up here.
A lovely and well equipped cottage in an ideal location.
My husband and I booked Natalie's listing for a trip to Helmsley for a family wedding, so that our brothers and one of their partners could also stay with us. It was the perfect size and location for us, just a 2-minute drive from the venue, with plenty of space for us to be comfortable and get ready for the event. The house was beautifully presented with everything we needed, and wonderful peaceful countryside surrounding us at the stud. Liz was on hand if we needed anything, and Natalie was extremely quick to respond to messages and easy to communicate with. The only downside for us was that it was such a flying visit! We could easily have stayed much longer! Would highly recommend.
We had a great time at Frankle cottage. We found it very homely and comfortable and loved the decor. It was also lovely to see the horses in the fields near to the cottage. We also saw Deer, Curlew, Hares and Rabbits. I'm sure we will be back and we will recommend the cottage to others.
Just wonderful. Perfect location if you want to visit York or the amazing villages by the sea. We arrived at night and when we woke up in the morning what surrendered us was breathtaking. The cottage is absolutely stunning. I just wanted to move in. A bottle of bubbles awaiting us was the icing on the cake. I truly recommend this awesome place for a peaceful time away from everything else. Will definitely go back.
