    About this property

    • Once part of the Duncombe Park Estate, this charming cottage dates back to circa 1880. The property sits on a sizeable plot, behind a pretty front garden and generous driveway. Currently used as a successful holiday let, the property would work equally well for someone looking for a private residence that is well-placed for access to Helmsley's excellent amenities.

      This three bedroom cottage is arranged over two floors, with living accommodation extending to just over 1,300 square feet. The well-proportioned layout includes a handmade Treske kitchen with granite worktops, built-in fridge/ freezer, dishwasher, gas Rayburn cooker and additional gas hob and a washing machine and dryer. Just off from the kitchen is the guest accommodation which comprises a downstairs shower room, living/ study area with fitted cupboards and wardrobe and stairs leading to the bedroom.

      Continuing through the ground floor is a sizeable sitting room with beautiful exposed wooden beams and an open fireplace.
      A further door leads to the recently finished conservatory which enjoys particularly nice views over the garden.

      Ascending the main staircase to the first floor, a spacious landing leads to two further double bedrooms and the house bathroom. Of particular note is the principal bedroom which benefits from a full wall of fitted wardrobes.

      Externally the property offers parking for up to three cars on a gravelled driveway. To the rear of the property is a particularly private garden, flanked by mature trees and hedges, well-stocked borders and a pond.

      There is a sizeable timber outbuilding with electricity, providing additional storage.

    Forge Cottage is such a delightful cottage, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the market square but close enough to wander in and enjoy all that Helmsley has to offer.
