  • "A lovely cosy property in thats in a great location for visits to the NY Moors, all seaside towns in N Yorkshire and York."

    We've stayed there twice now so obviously it fits our needs. Pickering has everything youll need during your stay and very friendly. One improvement for me would be an opening window in the bedroom as my personal choice is an open window at night.

    Cottage was conveniently situated, plenty of small stores and a Lidl. Thought it might be a bit noisy,but the back room was quiet. Lovely bathroom and good central heating system. Appreciated the wine and biscuits. Pickering is delightful,and I enjoyed my morning walk around castle with my dog before heading off to the moors. Thank you Matthew.

  • "Having read the reviews before booking we were a little bit torn, however this cottage was fantastic and absolutely suited us as a family."

    The parking was fine for our Skoda Roomster and my children loved the bathroom, which to be fair is huge and very well laid out. If you have younger children it’s probably best to know the stairs are open and that they are steep, however, that said my five year old was absolutely fine after a few trips running up and down! We hope to visit again!

  • "Good value holiday cottage, clean, comfortable and quite."

    Shared walled gravel court yard/car park with cottage attached at back of Coopers Cottage, sat outside a couple of times in the evening (no views other than the walls), but nice to be able to have some outside space. Lots of nice villages within driving distance/walking distance (if you like walking), Thornton Le Dale (1 hour walk away), Hole of Horcum (15 minutes drive), Whitby & Scarborough 30 - 40 mins drive. We had a meal at Indian restaurant in Pickering, 4 Spices (5 minute walks from cottage) and gave the food 10/10. Not all pubs were open when we stayed last week (re Covid19). Nice bath and separate shower in cottage.

  • "My wife, granddaughter and myself were happy with the cottage."

    It was very atmospheric and we were thrilled with that. With it being cold weather it would be nice to have a couple of throws to sit and watch tv. However, you can always take fluffy socks and a jumper. The tv upstairs is small for the room and we couldn't get it to work at all. In the bedrooms there was only 1 socket with plug in adaptors. Nowhere to charge phone, laptop and iPads etc. A weak wifi signal. Could do with a shaving socket in the bathroom. Luxury bathroom with quite a high bath, so be aware of that. Combi boiler meant lots of hot water. The beds were comfy and warm. One of the quilts was eiderdown, so be aware if you have allergies just ask for a different one. One of the bedrooms had a privacy curtain wall. That was ok for us. It was fab as our base. It's between a Chinese and an Indian takeaway. You can't notice smells at all. We tried the Indian takeaway which was very tasty. There's a canny little shop nearby. Out of the gate, take a left and walk approximately 100m, cross the road and it's next to the fish shop. All in all, having been to many other apartments and cottages, this was great and suitable for 3 people or 2 couples. It was definitely an experience, walking in the steps of others through the centuries.

  • "Described in different parts of the web site as an end of terrace and mid-terrace cottage, nowhere did it say it was a terrace of shops and the cottage was sandwiched between a Chinese takeaway and an Indian restaurant/takeaway."

    We found the rooms dark and draughty, not at all like the photos on the website. The steps up to the bathroom had to be negotiated sideways. There was no frosted glass in either of the bathroom windows, and no blind or curtain at the front window, we hung a bath towel over it! After struggling to get into the high bath and slipping, then unable to get out again, I dare not use the shower again, a bath mat or rail may have helped but the side of the bath was very high. We came home on Thursday as my husband was unable to sleep very well due to the noise into the early hours. We have stayed in other cottages before and we were very disappointed with Coopers Cottage.

    Reviewed by SallySep 2019

  • "The cottage looked fantastic in the pictures."

    . in reality it was nothing like them. It was jammed between a Chinese take away and Indian restaurant. The bathroom windows were not fitted with frosted glass and was visible from the main road outside as no blinds or curtains were fitted to the front. To top it off, the staff from the Indian restaurant stood on the wall opposite the cottage and looked right into the bedroom. The place was dated and to be honest we nearly went straight home. The only thing we could do was leave early in the morning and only come back to sleep. We did cut our holiday short by coming home on the Thursday instead of Saturday. I know the place was grade 2 listed but I've stayed in them before and the standards were much better.

    The cottage itself had everything we needed, was clean and warm. We thoroughly enjoyed the quiet aspect of the cottage even though it was close to a main road. The second bedroom had a heavy curtain as a partition between the stairs and the bedroom instead of a wall, which did not bother my friend and I as it gave us enough privacy. On arrival there was a welcome pack including tea, coffee, milk and biscuits. My friend and I would certainly use Coopers Cottage again.

  • "The cottage is comfortable and very close to the centre of Pickering."

    The outside space is only really suitable to park a small car (Focus size max) as it is shared with the neighbouring cottage, and is not really suited to sitting outside. There is an Indian restaurant one side and a Chinese takeaway the other, once inside the cottage you wouldn’t know they were there. The town is ideally located for touring the Moores and coast. It’s a 10 min walk to Pickering Castle, which is ideal for walking dogs through the woods.

    The outside sitting area had changed completely with nothing appropriate to sit on which was such a shame as the area was a sun trap and it would have been nice to sit out in the evening. I wouldn't have booked this cottage if I had known there wasn't anywhere to sit outside. Upstairs was nice. Spacious bedrooms, comfy beds and a large bathroom. The main road is very busy in the mornings so very noisy. The indian restaurant and Chinese takeaway were both brilliant and there was no noise or smell from them at all. The location of the cottage was perfect for exploring the area and Pickering is an absolute delight.

    Matt, the owner, is really helpful. The photos don't do the cottage justice as the front room has been updated and the bathroom, which isn't pictured, is really lovely.
