Previous visitors' comments about Alfie's Place:
Location of the cottage was excellent for accessing Yorkshire Moors and Coast.
The cottage was spacious and quite well equipped.
Mr Jenkins, Norwich, February 2013
The cottage was warm, well equipped. and comfortable. The garden was reasonably secure and provided she was supervised our dog could have a good sniff about etc. I think that it is the best cottage we have ever stayed in.
Mr Shane, Barton-upon-Humber, March 2012
We loved everything about staying at Alfie's Place. Pickering is a lovely central point for a base, and local transport was really good and regular.
