    “This was our second visit to Spire View, a cosy comfortable flat, an ideal location for exploring North Yorkshire and just 100 meters from the Heritage Steam Railway.”


    Unfortunately I noted that the owner has still not attended to the sash windows which I (and several other people) commented on in the Summer - they need new sashes - the windows are likely to pinch fingers when trying to open them so we spent a week without airing the flat. Also, on a domestic note, it would be useful to have larger plates for serving up dinner (or perhaps we are just greedy eaters!) and it would be useful to have some pirex dishes or similar for heating food in the microwave or cooking in the oven. We like cosy winter nights at home on holiday so I cook on holiday but perhaps other people don't!

The property

Situated in a lovely position, overlooking the cobbled main street in Pickering, is this first floor apartment, set above a gift shop.

With the famous steam railway just a two minute walk away, it is just the ticket for couples wanting to explore this popular market town, known as the Gateway to the North York Moors National Park.

Internal stairs lead up to the apartment, which is cosy and comfortable, with a compact kitchen with dining area and a separate sitting room, with views over the town to the church spire beyond.

With off road parking for one car in the courtyard at the back, guests can safely leave their car behind and hop on the train that puffs its way through the heather-clad moors to Grosmont and Whitby.

All amenities are at your fingertips, with quaint tea rooms, coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and independent shops at your disposal.

Pickering has much to offer visitors, with its castle ruins, museums, bike hire and trout fishing ponds.

With spectacular scenery on the doorstep and a wealth of stately homes and gardens to visit, including Duncombe Park, Nunnington Hall and Castle Howard, there is plenty to keep you busy.

Take a trip to the nearby market town of Helmsley, visit the castle and be sure to take the two mile walk along the valley to the beautiful Rievaulx Abbey.

With the east coast seaside towns of Whitby and Scarborough within a half hour drive and the wonderful historic city of York an easy drive, you are well placed for an interesting and varied holiday.
