“Good on the whole, minor niggles plus be aware - garden NOT fully enclosed for dogs”
Reviewed April 30, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Firstly, reviews can be subjective. If you spent £650 for a week here your view would be different from someone spending over £2000. This view is based on us spending around £1400 for a week.
This is a nice property and the location in relation to Helmsley can not be faulted. Such a short walk to the market place it's fab. Helmsley is a lovely little town with more dog friendly eateries than anywhere I have ever been!
The house is large , but I think the occupancy should be less. Luckily we were not at capacity but I think it would be quite uncomfortable if we were. Firstly the bedroom with 2 extra beds, we had one pulled out and that was enough. With 2 out there would no floor space between them. The other issue is the kitchen. When the table is away from the wall it leaves very little maneuvering room for cooking and serving and feels quite cramped.
I had a real problem with the lack of privacy glass in the en-suite. Most of the time you therefore had the blind down and the light on. Unfortunately the very noisy extractor fan carries on for a ridiculous length of time after the light is turned off. At night this was especially annoying. I would have used the mirror light but the bulb was missing!
My other major issue was in thinking the garden was enclosed. Although I was outside with our dog, I did not realise he could get through the hedge - one minute he was there, then he was gone after a cat next door. Several minutes later he returned following frantic shouting from all the family but it was a heart stopping time.
Other little niggles; Only one toilet roll in each bathroom and one bin bag in the kitchen with no spare?!
Ridiculous bottom rack in dishwasher with no real space for plates and a big crash when you pulled it in or out.
Constantly dripping tap in kitchen.

I know I seem like I am being negative but I feel there are issues with this property that need addressing. I try to give honest reviews and I feel this is.
On a final note, this is the only property I have ever stayed in where I have been asked to strip the beds and empty the bins - they said only if you have time but really?!

“Couldn't fault it”
Reviewed November 20, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This house is warm and welcoming in a snowy November, fully equipped with everything you could need for a family weekend away. The owners are friendly and efficient making the organising very easy. The location was great for us both walking distance into Helmsley and easy access to great dog walks. All we need now is to book again in the summer to make full use of the garden.

“Fabulous house in the centre in Helmsley”
Reviewed August 15, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We visited Helmsley as a group of two families, in all there were 9 of us and 2 dogs. The house was easily large enough to accommodate us without us getting under each others' feet. Every room is beautifully decorated, with four good sized bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a lovely large kitchen, living room and conservatory. Plus a really nice, secluded garden and decking area, with private parking for one car. On arrival, it was clear that the house was spotlessly clean, and there was even a small welcome gift awaiting us. The owners provided logs for the fire, use of bicycles, ideas for things to do / see / eat, and really everything anyone could need for a great holiday on the edge of the North York moors. We spent most of our time walking, but also used Helmsley's outdoor pool, visited the castle, Rievaulx Abbey and Mount Grace Priory. We mostly ate in the house kitchen in the evening and then retired to the conservatory for a glass of wine. We did venture into the village for a wonderful meal at the Black Swan one evening - thoroughly recommended, but with prices to match the quality of the food!

In all, a wonderful relaxing week in a beautiful part of the country. Thinking of returning, maybe for a winter break.

We couldn't be happier that you enjoyed your break at Castle View, thank you for taking the time to tell us about it. It is great to hear that you had everything you needed to hand there for your group, and your evening routine of dining at the property and retiring for a glass of wine sounds perfect for unwinding at the end of a day walking! We will be sure to pass your comments along to the owner and hope you return for another holiday soon.

We couldn't be happier that you've had such a wonderful experience at Castle View, thank you for sharing your thoughts on your stay there. Having views of the castle from the bedroom sounds fabulous, and having such a great place to call 'home' after being out and about exploring all that the area had to offer sounds just perfect! We certainly hope that you will be back for another holiday soon!
