Helmsley  Walled Garden

Helmsley Walled Garden is absolutely stunning in August and September. This garden is a great place to visit and you can combine it with a visit to the market town of Helmsley, a visit to see the Birds of Prey at Duncombe Park or an afternoon at Rievaulx Abbey for a full day out.

Wow - our guests have given Jade Cottage such rave reviews on Reevoo over the last year that we have won a Customer's Choice Award. Jade Cottage had an overall rating of 9.5 or 10 (or higher!)

This picture is the view from the kitchen window of Jade Cottage.

A pair of Great Spotted Woodpeckers (Dendrocopos major) have reared a pair of young in our woodland - no wonder I have to keep topping up the feeders.

Out and about

Out and about on the North York Moors this weekend we spotted a lovely barn owl.

We are located in the Yorkshire Wildlife Triangle and often spot wildlife. This week we have seen deer and a tawny owl at dusk and a fox very early in the morning. We have vole holes and mole hills too!


"Froggy would a wooing go..." At the weekend there were no frogs in the pond but they have now started gathering.
