    Needs attention to detail like as a previous visitor mentioned , numerous lightbulbs out , no battery replaced in clock , very tired around the edges and the cleanliness for us was the worst . Black mould in areas , bathrooms look like they had ,had a wipe but not a full clean , things felt grimy , grease running down front of dishwasher unit . Dog mess left in garden that previous people did not pick up . We did not eat in the cottage and maybe it is us that like things looking perfect but the pictures can’t be recent as it is looking tired now . Shame but wouldn’t stay there again . All is needed is bleach spray ,we bought a fragrance candle to remove the smell of damp . On a positive note the area is lovely and cottage in a good spot ,parking is easy enough and within walking distance .

The property

This mid-terrace stone cottage rests in the heart of Pickering, a fabulous location for train enthusiasts, and a historic market town with an abundance of charm and character.

Join family or friends for a memorable stay at Platform 5 & 3/4, your own delightful home away from home, wrapped in a warm ambience with thoughtful features gracing the accommodation.

The lounge is most appealing, housing comfy sofas, and a woodburning stove which is tucked away into a rose coloured fireplace.

Laminate flooring guides the layout round to the contemporary kitchen.where sage units sit amongst calm purple walls, and built-in appliances provide everything you need for a delightful getaway.

Straight ahead, there is a charming table with characterful pew seating, a lovely arrangement for a gathering with your loved ones, or breakfast in the early hours.

On this floor you will also discover a shower room, whilst a magnificent bathroom is situated upstairs housing a freestanding bath.

The bedrooms promise a lovely night's sleep, from the king-size room with pretty bedside tables and a wardrobe, to the family room which reveals both a double and a single bed with a further single room which can only be accessed from the family room.

Finished in a simplistic yet stylish overtone with pleasant outlooks, this retreat is perfect all-season-round.

Outdoors, the garden is your own haven for some well-deserved relaxation, boasting a patio with furniture, lawn area, and lastly a summer house which rests to the other side.

Enjoy a ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway, ideal for exploring some of the locations used in the filming of The Philosopher’s Stone!

The Beck Isle Museum is also well worth a visit, with its unique collection of black and white photography and displays of rural life.

Walkers will be spoilt for choice by the rolling hills, valleys, rivers and abundant wildlife of the North York Moors, whilst the city of York and the Heritage Coast are just half an hour’s drive away.

Somewhere special to build some memories.
