Little gem of a cottage on the main street in Helperby. Owner seems to have thought of pretty much everything for a great stay and some nice touches like a welcome hamper and kitchen items. Heating was a bit temperamental, though the log fire was welcome. Owner was on hand via email, phone or whatsapp to answer any queries and was very responsive.
