Discover the Moors, the coast and the city of York. This ancient
market town lies midway between York and Scarborough, making it a
great base to explore North Yorkshire and its many attractions. And
everything you could wish for is just a short drive from our
Pickering holiday cottages.
Dominating the skyline is the soaring spire of St. Peter and St.
Paul's, a splendid church of Norman origin decorated with an
extraordinary collection of medieval murals. Built by William the
Conqueror, Pickering Castle is a classic example of a 12th Century
motte-and-bailey castle, while the Beck Isle Museum of Rural Life
showcases an extensive display of Victorian artefacts.
Ready for a spot of shopping? There's an excellent choice of
shops to browse, from everyday provisions to galleries and gift
shops, along with a popular street market on Mondays.
Spectacular countryside is all around, so get out and explore!
Follow the nature trail at Bridestones Moor, a nature reserve where
curious rocks punctuate the landscape. Or hop aboard the North
Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway, which starts in Pickering and
provides access to numerous walking and cycling trails.
What else? Learn something new like the art of angling at
Pickering Trout Lake, or go off-roading in 4x4s. Look out for
filming locations used in 'Harry Potter and the
Philosopher's Stone'. 'Go Ape' at Dalby Forest.
Other attractions within easy reach include the Ryedale Folk
Museum, Flamingo Land, Castle Howard and Eden Camp.
After a day's adventure, sample Pickering's inviting
restaurants and cosy pubs, or grab a take-away and relax in your
Pickering holiday cottage.
