  • "Although I fell ill during our stay it did not detract from our stay."

    The cottage was so handy for the cheap bus service that we utilised the service quite a lot and left the car parked. It was a relatively quiet spot given that we were on the main road and slept well in the comfy beds. A local shop was only 100 metres away and it was a five-minute walk to get into the town centre. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

  • "Lovely cottage with a brilliant kitchen."

    The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom was excellent. The cottage is ideal for exploring the town, close to shops and the White Swan, a dog friendly pub with great food and its own brewery! There are some great walks to be had so we didn’t need to drive at all.

    Thank you Norman for the positive response. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay in Pickering and Cobblers Cottage. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is in a fantastic location with the old market town just minutes walk, there's many choices of dining especially if you don't fancy cooking whilst on holiday."

    York, Whitby and Scarborough are not that far away. I would highly recommend a visit to the teddy bear orphanage down eastgate called Tinks, they're only open weekends but it's such a fantastic place, we ended up adopting 3 bears.

  • "The cottage was charming with everything you needed for a family holiday with a well equipped kitchen for those quiet nights in and 2 large double bedrooms and a good sized single."

    The location gave plenty opportunities to travel to the coast or venture inland to the dales, all within a 30 minute to 40 minute drive. The village had Indian, Italian, Chinese dining and good old English chippy as well as a few pubs that served food. Good walks were also close by so in all a great location for families and those adventurous types.
