Whether you want the stunning scenery and history of the North York moors, the attractions of the seaside or the cultural delights of the city of York, then YHA Helmsley is the ideal base. Located in one the prettiest market towns in North Yorkshire, this cosy purpose built property provides a perfect base to explore this unique region overflowing with history, heritage and unrivalled scenery. Around the market square is an eclectic mix of cafes, bookshops, galleries, and delicatessens, providing the best Yorkshire has to offer. This was recognised in the town receiving the Best Market Town award in the 2015 British High Street Awards.
Rievaulx Abbey and Castle Howard are both on our doorstep, whilst the cultural delights of York, Fountains Abbey, and the seaside resorts of Whitby and Scarborough are all within easy reach. The Cleveland Way begins from Helmsley in the shadow of the imposing 12th Century castle ruins, and mountain bike routes abound on the surrounding heather-covered moorlands and at nearby Sutton Bank and Dalby Forest. With quiet country roads in the Vale of Pickering and Howardian Hills, and more challenging routes across the North York Moors, the area is equally popular for road cycling.
