  • “Dove Cottage has everything you could want from a holiday cottage, from a lovely hamper on arrival to super soft bed linen.”

    The cottage is also really warm and cozy and well placed for Pickering which I think might be the friendliest place in Yorkshire!

The property

This Grade II listed, three-storey cottage is situated in the heart of the fascinating market town of Pickering in North Yorkshire.

Renovated to a very high standard while still retaining many period features, Dove Cottage offers the perfect base for couples and small families, with many cafes, pubs and restaurants within walking distance.

Pick up some delicious Yorkshire produce from one of the local shops and settle down to a holiday feast.

After a day of exploring the North York Moors, look forward to unwinding in the cosy lounge, complete with a beautiful inglenook fireplace and woodburning stove.

The stylish, contemporary cottage kitchen/dining room has cream shaker-style units, a white porcelain sink, dishwasher, gas hob, microwave and electric oven.

From the kitchen step out into the private courtyard, with side gate to the car park and access to the utility room and secure cycle store.

The courtyard has comfortable patio furniture where you can enjoy alfresco dining or your morning coffee in the warmer months, easing yourself into the day by reading the paper.

Both bedrooms in this Pickering cottage can be found upstairs; the boutique-style master bedroom offers generous proportions with a king-size bed, cast iron fireplace, original wooden floor boards and a charming window seat where you can watch the village life go by.

Next door is the bathroom, where you’ll find a bath with an electric power shower overhead.

Head up to the second floor to discover another large bedroom, offering twin beds, which can also be configured as a super-king, if requested.

Pickering is well located to enjoy a wide range of attractions, including Eden Camp, Flamingoland, Rosedale & Helmsley.

Pickering is the home of the famous North York Moors steam railway that winds through the heather-clad moors to the village of Grosmont, ending in the beautiful sea-side town of Whitby.

Dalby Forest is the perfect place to picnic, or explore on foot or by bike and if you have a head for heights ‘Go Ape’.

If you fancy a day at the beach, resorts of Sandsend, Whitby and Scarborough are less than a forty minute drive away.

The history and splendour of Castle Howard, or the city of York make for a great day out for the whole family.

Dove Cottage provides luxury accommodation in the heart of North Yorkshire, providing an enjoyable holiday to remember.
