A delightful, stone and pantile end-terrace cottage dating back to the early 18th century, situated with views overlooking the steam railway, in the pretty market town of Pickering.
Warm and welcoming, Briar cottage is ideal for steam enthusiasts as well as those wishing to explore the admirable scenery of the North York Moors National Park.

The kitchen holds a contemporary design and provides an ideal set up for preparing meals from morning through to evening.
A delightful dining area is tucked into the corner, with bench seating so everyone can gather together and socialise after a busy afternoon of exploring.
