Helmsley is a very nice town. I really appreciate the Verbena spa, it is one of the best I have been to! Helmsley has really nice surroundings and many small boutiques with friendly, helpful staff. I'm especially fond of Libby Butler's jewellery. It is a great place for a romantic weekend, or a fun and relaxing weekend with friends.
It's a really picturesque market town - me, my husband and two boys love to go there on a day trip. There's loads of lovely independent shops, fab family friendly pubs and restaurants, a castle (my four-year-old loves it!), a walled garden and plenty of walks and fresh air! Well worth a visit. Always come away saying we wish we lived there!
Stay at the Feathers Hotel. Although there are several hotels in Helmsley, Feathers appealed for friendliness, convenience, and low-key comfort.
Use this as your headquarters to visit the abbeys - they are all quite wonderful and unique. And when sick of people, drive into the moors, especially in the "off" season such as November.
