  • “Property actually on Brant Hill not Bursgate.”

    Not suitable for people who find steps difficult. Lovely views from patio. Pickering a great base for moors and seaside and town is full of interest. LOCAL MUSEUM is great. A tray would have been useful we adapted a lid from our cooler box to aid us carrying to patio.

The property

Situated on the edge of the majestic North York Moors, resting amidst the vibrant market town of Pickering is this stone-built cottage, Dovecote.

This outstanding accommodation is equipped for a family seeking to explore all that this countryside setting has to offer, as well as the Yorkshire Coastline promising a superb summer’s day out.

Upon entering the property, be welcomed into the stylish kitchen with the marble effect countertops complementing the neutral tones of the cupboards, and the quality appliances left to assist you during your self-catering holiday.

Enjoy your culinary delight within the dining room, perfect for gathering all of your loved ones together to plan the day’s ahead whilst tucking into your breakfast or your heart-warming evening meal.

After dinner, make your way up the staircase to unwind into your evening within the first-floor sitting room, where you can sink into the plush seating arrangement and tune into the TV.

As the evening draws to a close, head back to the ground floor and drift off to a night’s refreshing embrace within one of the elegantly-appointed bedrooms.

Here, you will find a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room, whilst the king-size bedroom is supported by the gleaming family bathroom.

To the outside, you and your loved ones can open up a bottle of something and savour the balmy evening, or the table and chairs offer an alternative spot for alfresco dining.

For your local amenities, take a short stroll into the centre of Pickering, where you will be spoilt for choice by the shops where you can stock up on the essentials, in addition to a couple of pubs for celebrating that special occasion.

The town comes with a vast array of attractions that a group of all ages will enjoy, including The North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Pickering Castle and Beck Isle Museum.

Wihtin the surrounding area you will find opportunities for exploring the Great Outdoors, including the iconic Cleaveland Way and Dalby Forest, or if you are bringing your bike along find a number of tracks upon the National Park.

Dovecote is a wonderful retreat for a memorable holiday to this part of Yorkshire.
