rooftops to Helmsley Castle has twin beds which can be zipped together to make a superking bed. There is a further double bedroom and a room with twin beds. The family bathroom has a power shower, WC and wash basin.

On the ground floor, there is a large, well-equipped kitchen / dining room with electric double oven, gas hob, microwave and dishwasher. A separate utility room has washing machine, condenser dryer and a WC with wash basin.
