Shallowdale house was a comfortable place to stay . Anton and Philip are very welcoming and very helpful . My room was clean , very spacious and comfortable with beautiful views over the valley whatever the weather . Breakfast easily set me up for the day . There is parking at the property and two guest lounge area's pleasant to sit in and read book or just relax. The location is just 5 miles from Helmsley and very easy access to lots of walks in the North Yorkshire National Park. I had travelled alone and would be happy to stay here again.
