Pickering, North York Moors & Coast
A sweet terraced property, originally an old railway cottage, in the market town of Pickering, the gateway to the North York Moors. Situated opposite the steam railway station, this Grade II listed Pickering cottage has been lovingly renovated and provides cosy and welcoming accommodation, with a snug sitting room and a compact kitchen. Steep cottage stairs lead up to two pretty and traditionally furnished bedrooms, with views towards the station. Outside this Pickering cottage is a communal path that leads up to a small, sunny garden with a lovely little summerhouse – the perfect spot to sit and listen to the sounds of the steam trains, whilst enjoying a morning cup of coffee! With all the amenities of the town on the doorstep, this Pickering cottage is ideally placed, with an excellent selection of pubs, tea rooms, individual shops and restaurants and a weekly farmers' market. Take a stroll up to the impressive castle, visit Beck Isle Museum and, not to be missed, take a trip on the steam railway. Surrounded by the beautiful heather-clad moors, there are good walking and touring opportunities, with numerous stately homes in the vicinity and the seaside towns of Whitby and Scarborough within easy reach. A charming Pickering cottage all year round.
