“Nice breakfast, shame about the rest.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2011

Room was cramped and bed uncomfortable. Pillows limp. Room not hoovered during 3 night stay. Grim brown, flat pretend wood doors. Nice antique- pine furniture. Towels laid out as if new each day but had our tell-tale toothpaste stains and were damp because they'd been rolled. Bath only with no hand shower attachment on taps even to make hair washing a possibility. Lots of hot water. If furniture had been arranged differently, the room would have felt far more spacious.

Room Tip: Would stay in Helmsley itself next time.

plumptoncourt, Owner at Plumpton Court, responded to this review, 16 May 2011
I would like to thank the reviewer, at Plumpton Court myself and all my staff take great pride in providing the friendliest most comfortable environment we possibly can with the facilities at our disposal.

The comments made have been very helpful and we are taking appropriate measures to improve and have changed the pillows in question.

With regards to the towels this was a housekeeping error and has been reviewed.

We do usually ensure the towels are left completely dry.

Unless soiled we dry and replace the towels each day as we are all encouraged to save on laundry to protect the environment, each room is centrally heated so there are radiators available.

With regards to the layout of the room Plumpton Court was originally built in the 17th century so the rooms each have their own individual character, as the owner I present each room in the best possible way and the room in question is arranged to give the most space available.

Most of our rooms have a bath and shower this particular room is the only one with a bath only.

The fake wooden doors are fire doors and as such difficult to replace but I have looked into the possibility of painting them.

It is our aim to provide the very best in Yorkshire Hospitality and our room literature encourages our visitors to bring any issues to my attention so they can be rectified immediately.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2011

We have just returned from a 2-night stay with friends for the New Year. The owner (Chris) is a really friendly bloke who goes out of his way to make you feel at home. The rooms were very clean, the breakfast excellent (much needed after 4 hrs sleep on New Years Day!) and the place is ideally located for exploring the North York Moors area. The facilities in Nawton are the only restriction for this place - the local pub is simply awful and the cip shop was shut for another week. Thankfully, the local Indian restaurant was top drawer. I would definitely return again.

My friend and I have just returned from a long weekend in North Yorkshire and what a find Plumpton Court is.Lovely clean room,fresh towels every day,superb breakfast and a homely feel to the place. The owner Chris is very friendly and we had a real laugh with him.There is a small bar with very reasonable prices,the village of Nawton has a superb Indian restaurant which we ate in (called Desai Spice Club), again this is highly recommended.
This b&b is ideal for touring round the North York moors and is within easy driving distance of Whitby,Scarborough and the surrounding area.
We had a lovely weekend and I look forward to going back sometime.I also recommend the home made marmalade at breakfast, its delicious.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2009

We stayed here for two nights last weekend and had a great time. The B&B is located a few minutes drive from Helmsley in the quiet village of Nawton. Nearby facilities are limited to a pub (we popped in for a quick drink on the Saturday afternoon after a walk, it isn't great but has a nice enough beer garden), a curry house and fish and chip shop - neither of which we sampled.

The B&B is in a lovely stone house, we received a friendly welcome and were made to feel at home there. The bedroom wasn't the largest but the bathroom was a good size and was very clean. The usual bits in the room with tea and coffee and a TV provided.

Breakfast was a highlight, fresh local produce cooked very well, there was a very good atmosphere in the dining room too.

I would have no problem recommending Plumpton Court, it is in a great location to explore the beautiful countryside and we had a great stay.

Stayed here for 2 nights in May bank holiday weekend. Had a friendly welcome from the host Chris, Fair sized room, with a large en-suite bathroom. TV, coffee making facilities in room. Bar & lounge downstairs for guests if required. Also had adequate parking for guests at back of property. Wonderful selection of breakfast foods available and cooked according to your preference. Very convenient location for North York Moors, just outside of Helmsley.
