    “A comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean cottage just a short walk from Pickering town centre.”

    Parking is off road and easy of access. The owners live next door and are friendly and welcoming. It is Ideally placed for exploring the NY Moors, and the NYM railway. We shall certainly return.

About the property

This attractive, semi-detached, stone-built cottage, adjoining the owners' home and bed and breakfast, is situated in the historic market town of Pickering, the gateway to the North York Moors National Park.

This cottage is well placed for families wishing to explore the spectacular surrounding countryside, with easy access to the popular seaside towns of Whitby and Scarborough.

Offering bright and airy accommodation, the cottage has two tastefully-styled bedrooms, as well as a modern, family bathroom.

An open plan living area features a well-equipped kitchen, a dining area where you can sit down to enjoy family meals and discuss the day's adventures, and a comfortable sitting area, where you can cosy up after a day exploring the Yorkshire Moors.

Outside are well-kept communal gardens, where you can sit on sunny summer mornings and enjoy a cup of coffee, before embarking on a day of adventures across North Yorkshire.

An easy ten-minute walk brings you into the centre of this popular, bustling market town, boasting a wide range of independent shops, tempting tea rooms and friendly pubs and restaurants.

Take a magical trip on the North York Moors Steam Railway, which winds its way through beautiful scenery to the small village of Grosmont.

History buffs will love to while away pleasant afternoons at the Beck Isle Museum and Pickering Castle, and for theme park lovers, Flamingo Land is a few minutes’ drive from this Pickering cottage.

Enjoy a fun-filled day riding the roller coasters and meet the animals in the zoo!

On lazy summer afternoons, why not try your hand at trout fishing at the local trout farm?

Visit the stately homes of Duncombe Park, Castle Howard and Scampston Hall, and marvel at the abbey ruins of Byland and Rievaulx.

With the North Yorkshire Coast merely a half hour drive away, and fantastic walking opportunities over the nearby open moors, this cottage truly makes a fantastic base, all year round.
