The Property

This delightful, mid-terraced cottage lies close to the centre of the historic market town of Pickering, known as the Gateway to the North York Moors National Park. Renovated to a high standard, this Pickering cottage is perfect for couples or small families wanting to enjoy this beautiful area and the nearby coastal resorts of Whitby and Scarborough. Retaining much original charm and character, this Pickering cottage offers a spacious sitting room with dining area, boasting beamed ceilings, wood floors and stripped pine doors. With a cosy gas fire, this comfortable room provides a warm and welcoming place to relax after a day spent exploring the local area. A galley-style kitchen leads from the sitting room, whilst up the traditional cottage stairs you will find a tastefully-styled double bedroom and additional bunk bedroom. To the rear of this Pickering cottage, steps lead up to a sheltered, decked patio and lawn, a perfect place for enjoying a glass of wine as the sun goes down. A few minutes’ walk from this Pickering cottage brings you into the hustle and bustle of this popular market town, where a wide array of individual shops, tempting tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and a weekly market along the main street await you. The Beck Isle Museum and the castle ruins are worth visiting, whilst both young and old will enjoy a magical trip on the steam railway, which winds its way through the heather-clad moors to the small village of Grosmont. The surrounding area has much to offer, with gardens and stately houses to visit, including Castle Howard (from Brideshead Revisited) and Duncombe Park, along with the pretty market towns of Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside. Golfing enthusiasts can enjoy a round at the excellent courses at Malton and Kirkbymoorside, whilst culture lovers must visit Byland and Rievaulx Abbeys. With easy access to the coast and wonderful walking through spectacular countryside, this Pickering cottage provides a good base, all year round.
