  • "Had the most amazing stay, the house was beautiful and we instantly felt at home, everything you could possibly need was provided and an unexpected food parcel was extremely appreciated."

    The Christmas tree was a lovely thought and the fact that it snowed during our stay made it extra special. Pickering itself is a great base with Whitby, Scarborough, Dalby forest and other walks and places to visit within a short drive. Would definitely recommend and would love to come back and stay again in the future. Thank you so much to Alan and John.

  • "Lovely comfortable house."

    Few comments: Table in kitchen very small for 4 people. Couldn’t find a corkscrew. No large bowls. Pamphlets on local attractions would have been useful.

    Thank you for your review, we have now supplied a corkscrew and salad bowls, thank you for bringing this to our notice. We think turning the table round so guests can sit at each side and at each end may be more suitable. We will be supplying more information about the area. Property Owner

Welcoming four guests and boasting a well-equipped kitchen, enclosed garden and off-road parking, Derwent House is the ultimate base for beginning your next adventure in North Yorkshire.

Cross the threshold into your new abode, ready to kick back and relax in a homely sitting room complete with Smart TV as your other half whips up a tasty meal in the well-equipped kitchen; take advantage of a great range of high-quality appliances, including a dishwasher so you don’t have to worry about the clean-up!

Settle down at the dining table to relish mealtimes as a family, pouring a glass of wine and reflecting on your favourite memories so far or if the weather permits, step out into the enclosed garden to savour a late-night tipple and admire your tranquil surroundings.

When the evening draws to a close, retreat to the first floor where you’ll find a spacious family bathroom, ideal for indulging a long soak before completing your evening skincare routine and retiring to bed; a neatly-presented super-king-size (zip/link) and a double wait for you to rest your head in preparation for another day of adventures.

Begin your exploration in Pickering where Newbridge Park and North York Moors Railway await, as well as a great selection of shops and pubs so you can stock up on the essentials or treat your loved ones to some hearty fare.

A short car journey away, discover the bustling city of York where York Minster, York City Walls and Betty’s Café Tea Rooms all reside, in addition to a wealth of shopping opportunities; alternatively, if you prefer to spend your days along the coast, Scarborough is not too far away and boasts Scarborough Castle and Scarborough Beach.
