    “Location was excellent as we wanted to be by the steam railway for the gala, however a number of times our car got blocked in and we had to ask people from neighbouring properties to let us out when we wanted to go elsewhere.”

    (Not the fault of the property owner)

    (Not the fault of the property owner) The cottage is Quirky and has character but we missed little finishing touches like soap in the bathroom, a basics welcome pack, hairdryer and I never found the stairgate. Although I knew there was no WiFi or washing machine, I did miss the washing machine particularly as it was a wet week and we did get wet/muddy a number of times. Please bear this in mind when booking.

The property

The Sidings is a Grade II listed cottage steeped in history and was reputedly once a bakery and a public house, set in the thriving and historic market town of Pickering at the foot of the glorious North Yorkshire Moors National Park.

Nowadays it is a lovely cosy cottage with original beams set over three floors with three bedrooms, including a twin room on the second floor.

There is also a kitchen with a dining area where you can enjoy a meal together before relaxing in the sitting room.

The attractive patio is a real suntrap and is a perfect retreat for relaxing and alfresco dining at the picnic table.

Stroll across the road and embark on the Pullman Dining Train for an unforgettable lunch, afternoon tea or evening meal in luxurious style.

The cottage has off road parking just outside the front door and with so many options for exploring this fantastic area you can head off for a great adventure and the car can stay put!

There is a good bus service linking all the towns, villages, moors and coast.

Hop on and off the bus and sample some of the excellent walks on offer.

The Sidings offers tantalising views towards the North Yorkshire Moors Railway station and the railway is one of the world's greatest heritage railway experiences, seeing the 24 miles of amazing scenery is an absolute must.

For Harry Potter fans Hogsmeade Station is really Goathland in disguise!

The drive to Whitby is across the atmospheric and undulating moors whilst Scarborough is a pleasant and scenic route passing through pretty villages.

The North Yorkshire Moors is not all about the emotive landscape; comprising of over 1400 miles of pine forests, shimmering coastline, amazing wildlife, castles, abbeys and mile after mile of some great off-road cycling this National Park is breathtakingly beautiful.

The area is dotted with exceptionally pretty villages with hearty pubs serving traditional Yorkshire fayre making this a great choice for families and friends alike who are looking to explore the area.
