  • "I was happy enough with the property."

    However the fact that the main oven was broken and replaced with a tiny table top oven and we weren’t informed of this before we arrived was not acceptable. We had brought all our things for Christmas dinner and the weekend to cook and was made impossible by this. If we’d known we could have done something about it and prepared differently. Or more likely changed the booking to another property.

    We were assured the part would arrive and be fitted before your visit. Unfortunately this didn't happen due to circumstances beyond our control and we bought the mini oven as a temporary replacement. The oven has now been repaired. We truly apologise for the inconvenience and disappointment this has caused but hope you have overall enjoyed your stay in Pickering . Jan & Roger Property Owner

The property

Nestled in the historic market town of Pickering, Robin Cottage is a cosy two bedroom cottage tucked away on a small quiet road and just 2 minutes walk from the town centre. Enjoying a superb location, it is an ideal choice for couples or families and offers the perfect base for exploring the surrounding area.

Guests can unload/load their cars outside the cottage then head to on-street parking which is available close by on a first-come, first-served basis. On entering the property, the hallway has space to leave outdoor clothes and shoes, and guests are then welcomed into a lovely, cosy lounge with a comfortable seating area, flatscreen Smart TV, a flame effect electric fire and Wifi.

The dining area is spacious and perfect for relaxing in after a day of exploring.

It leads directly into the well equipped kitchen offering everything you may need during your stay including an electric range-type cooker with a handy large cavity oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.

Upstairs there are two comfortable bedrooms, one superking (zip/linked) which can be twin on request, the other has a king sized bed.

The bathroom has been fitted to a high standard and offers a large shower, wash basin and heated towel rail. The private enclosed garden enjoys a sunny position with garden furniture and there is also a lovely summerhouse situated in a sunny corner of the garden to relax in and enjoy the evening sun.

Pickering and the Surrounding Areas There is just so much to enjoy during your stay.

Explore the town which offers a full range of amenities with independent shops, great pubs and an array of cafes and restaurants.

Just a five minute walk from Robin Cottage is the famous North York Moors Steam Railway which was used for years in the filming of Heartbeat.

It was also used in the filming of Harry Potter's 'The Philosophers Stone'.

Hop aboard and take a nostalgic 24 mile journey through the beautiful national park as far as Whitby.

Delve into history and visit Pickering Castle and Beck Island Museum.

Book lovers will enjoy a visit to Yorkshire Quality Books, (next to the Fortune Inn), which stocks an incredible range of pre-loved books at reasonable prices.

Visit the Church of St Peter and St Paul situated at the top of Market Place to see the amazing medieval wall paintings. Pickering is ideally located to explore the seaside towns of Whitby (where you can sample some of the best fish and chips in the country) and Scarborough.

Both York and Harrogate are a 40 minute drive away.

The regular Coastliner bus service from Leeds to Whitby is said to the most scenic bus route in the country.

Pickering Library at The Ropery holds a good stock of information leaflets detailing all the local attractions such as Eden Camp, Flamingo Land, Sea World and Dalby Forest which is brilliant for outdoor activities for adventurers of all ages.

There are 13 walking trails, 4 running trails and 55 miles of cycle routes, and much more. Explore the charming nearby villages (and their pubs!) of Hutton-Le-Hole, Appleton-Le-Moors, Sinnington, Thorton-Le-Moors (Bangers and Cash fame) and Lastingham with the ancient Church of St Mary with its rare crypt which is said to be unique architecturally for England and possibly the world.

The picturesque market town of Helmsley is just 13 miles from Pickering and home to its own magnificent castle, a beautiful walled garden, and arts centre, the Helmsley Brewing Company, an open-air swimming pool, and the breath-taking Duncombe Park with its National Centre for Birds of Prey.

Further afield, you’ll find Scarborough, where you will find the attractions of Scarborough Open-Air Theatre, Rotunda Museum, the sea life centre, Scarborough Castle, Scarborough Beach, and Peasholm Park.

Robin Cottage is the idea base to rest and relax after busy days spent exploring and discovering.
