    “We stayed for a Christmas break and found the cottage to be perfect for our needs.”

    Situated very well in Pickering town this was a warm and cosy cottage. It was clean and had a lovely roomy kitchen with plenty of space and equipment provided. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds very comfy. There is lots of talk about the parking in previous reviews, so this is our take on it. The owner arranges free parking for one car at a nearby long stay car park - this is a 5 min walk from the cottage and you can usually walk through the station, making it a pleasant walk too. ...

    Situated very well in Pickering town this was a warm and cosy cottage. It was clean and had a lovely roomy kitchen with plenty of space and equipment provided. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds very comfy. There is lots of talk about the parking in previous reviews, so this is our take on it. The owner arranges free parking for one car at a nearby long stay car park - this is a 5 min walk from the cottage and you can usually walk through the station, making it a pleasant walk too. There is free night time parking across the road (6pm - 8am) during the day this is restricted, but the owner gives top tips for other free parking and at the long stay car park you can get a half price deal if you chat to the nice lady there and let her know you are part of the cottage party. If you have dogs (or toddlers or both) then be reassured that there is plenty of space downstairs and all the flooring is laminate or tiled (phew!). We loved the little nods to trains - the hearth, the dining room display and the bathroom sign were our favourites. Of course we didn't make much use of the little garden, but in the summer I can imagine it will be great space to sit and enjoy the evenings. There are plenty of walk from the doorstep, as well as good pubs and restaurants. It's half an hour drive to Scarborough, Whitby and Filey and just 10 mins to Flamingoland. All in all a great family destination. Loved it!

The property

A delightful, stone terraced cottage, situated opposite the steam railway and just a few hundred yards from the centre of the bustling market town of Pickering.

A period cottage, this wonderful Pickering holiday home has been fully restored to offer stylish and comfortable accommodation throughout, and is well placed for families and friends to enjoy time together exploring the North York Moors National Park and the nearby resorts of Whitby and Scarborough.

The cottage features a cosy sitting room with corner sofa and a warming woodburner in a feature fire surround, while a handmade Grandfather clock, a lovely rocking chair and little extra touches link the house back to its original era.

Upstairs in this Pickering cottage, the three spacious bedrooms are tastefully furnished, and offer excellent flexibility to suit the whole family.

The front bedroom of this Pickering cottage has a feature window which looks directly out across the railway station; a must for steam railway enthusiasts.

A short stroll from this Pickering cottage brings you to the centre of this historic town, with a weekly market, a rich array of tea rooms and pubs and some lovely independent shops.

Why not visit the interesting Beck Isle Museum or climb the steps up to the castle?

For both young and old, a trip on the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway is a must, as it winds its way through the stunning scenery of the heather-clad moors to Grosmont and Whitby.

With local walks through the woods and trout fishing just opposite, family and friends can get together, relax and enjoy this lovely old market town.

A lovely holiday home in a great location, ideal for a family holiday.
