We have just returned from a week at Peg's Cottage.
It's a lovely cottage, all very new and nicely decorated.
The cottage is ideal for couples as it has only one double bedroom, with open storage space, and a small hanging space, open shelving and a corner dressing table, with mirror, there is a lamp on the dressing table and wall lights above the bed, the bed has extra storage below, which makes it a bit of a hard bed to sleep on.
The shower is raised and has a folding door, this would not be suitable for anyone who needed level access shower, I had the help of my Partner to get in and out of the shower, the grab rail is placed too far back on the wall, nearer to the corner, away from the shower, it is very nicely tiled and has a toilet and handbasin, along with a heated towel rail, that warms the bathroom, there is a basin light with shaver point.
The bungalow has laminate flooring, in the hall, lounge and bathroom, the bedroom has fitted carpet, and the kitchen has quarry tiles, with a bit of a lip between the lounge and kitchen floors, a bit of a trip hazard.
The lounge is spacious with a two seater sofa, and arm chair, small TV, coffee table, and table with the TV on, a pine dining table and two dining chairs, ideal for eating breakfast and dinner.
The kitchen is WOW, its a lovely kitchen anyone would love to have in their home, it has plenty of saucepans, baking sheets, and other ovenproof dishes, gorgeous work services, and a lovely deep sink with laboratory style mixer tap, microwave, electric cooker, toaster and coffee maker, washing machine and fridge, all the essentials you could need, however, a few little things like colander, grater, which would be a bonus.
The cottage is centrally heated, but the icing on the cake is the gas fire, in the style of a log burner, which on a cold night would be heaven, we did try it a couple of times, and it took minutes to warm the place up, I wish we had one at home, its gorgeous.
As this is her first year doing a holiday let, I can say she has thought of everything, the secure on site parking, double glazing, comfy sofa, fluffy towels, constant/instant hot water, are a big plus in a holiday cottage.
When we go back to Yorkshire we will definitely book Peg's Cottage, its a safe secluded and quiet bolt hole, ideal for a relaxing holiday without constant traffic and ideal for star gazers, as no street lighting to mar the view of the sky at night.
Its only 2 miles from Helmsley town centre, which has ample shops, CO-Operative, Cost Cutter, as the supermarkets, the smaller shops are a deli selling loads of cheese, olives, cooked meat, pies, bread and a wealth of pickles, jams, spreads and cakes, voted the "Best Little shop in World" and a few other small shops, selling fruit and veg, original sweetshop, gifts , jet workshop, jewellery, newsagents, flowers and clothing, for the more decreeing, there is a a Brewery, which has a shop and also does brewery tours, of the brewing process, not far from this is the Birds of Prey Centre, we didn't get chance to visit, but we will next time, there are pubs, restaurant's and take a ways, Fish and chips, and a department store Browns, and for that really special gift, they have a shop Monsoons for Moorcroft, and it is the real deal, along with antiques shops and all the usual gift shops, Friday is Market Day, we tried the Chocolate Brownies, made local, they were to die for, along with the antique stalls and the usual weekly market stalls, Helmsley is the place to visit and to stay at Peg's is perfect, relaxing, quiet and ideal for that special get away.
