Hello, welcome home!

A very warm welcome to Westway Cottage, a friendly, cosy Bed & Breakfast set in the picturesque market town of Helmsley, on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors.

We are privileged to live in such a beautiful part of the world and we are pleased to be able to offer Bed & Breakfast accommodation once again. There have been many changes since we last opened our doors to guests; the main ones being we are older (and wiser?!) and our babies are now grown up; Matt is living in London and working as a freelance TV and video editor (watch out for his name on the credits!) and Amy is a visual merchandiser who has worked for the likes of Burberry, Liberty and Selfridges. We are very proud of them both!

The house too has been transformed; we now have 3 double letting bedrooms – 2 en-suite and one with private bathroom. We hope you will approve of the décor and furnishings, which are a mixture of old and new; from antique pine and French oak furniture, Victorian brass beds to DAB radios with iDock and mini fridges. The beds are made up with luxurious down duvets and Egyptian cotton sheets. There are fluffy white towels, plenty of complimentary toiletries, freeview TV’s, free WI-FI and well stocked tea trays with homemade goodies, all provided to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. 

We have put a lot of thought into the rooms and hope you will enjoy the finishing touches and attention to detail…but please let us know if there is anything we have forgotten!

We are looking forward to welcoming guests old and new…

Jane and Jeremy
