The property

This beautifully-presented, end-terrace stone cottage, lies close to the centre in the historic market town of Pickering, the gateway to the North York Moors National Park.

Renovated to a high standard, this Grade ll listed property is perfect for families and friends wanting to explore the stunning surrounding scenery and the nearby seaside resorts of Whitby and Scarborough.

Full of warmth and character, there is a bright and modern kitchen, with a small dining area and a door opening onto the rear garden.

A cosy sitting room leads off from the kitchen, with a warming open fire set in the original fireplace, beamed ceiling and tongue and groove doors; a comfortable and welcoming room in which to relax after a busy day out.

Traditional cottage stairs take you up to the two pretty bedrooms and the family bathroom.

Tastefully furnished, with great attention to detail, the cottage has a lovely homely feel, ensuring guests have a very pleasant stay.

Outside to the rear, there are a couple of steps up to the sheltered lawned garden and patio, a perfect place for a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine!

With the added benefit of off road parking, rarely found in Pickering, guests can leave their cars safely behind.

A ten minute walk brings you into the hustle and bustle of this popular market town, where a wide array of individual shops, tempting tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and a weekly market along the main street await you.

There are many attractions in the immediate area, including the Beck Isle Museum and the castle ruins, whilst both young and old will enjoy a magical trip on the steam railway, which winds its way through the heather-clad moors to the small village of Grosmont.

Well worth visiting are the stately homes and gardens of Castle Howard (from Brideshead Revisited) and Duncombe Park, along with the pretty market towns of Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside.

Golfing enthusiasts can enjoy a round at the excellent courses at Malton and Kirkbymoorside, whilst culture lovers will enjoy Byland and Rievaulx Abbeys.

With easy access to the coast and wonderful walking through spectacular countryside, this splendid cottage provides a good base, all year round.
