  • "Water coming through ceiling in the kitchen and master bedroom during heavy rain."

    Double bedroom on second floor not suitable for adults even short ones. All beds uncomfortable. Parking difficult due to awkward neighbour. Overall not a homely feel. Sofas very uncomfortable.

  • "We had a very enjoyable week ay this property."

    We found it spotlessly clean and the welcome pack was most "welcome". The location of the property is excellent for walking around the village and the facilities and equipment within the house were very comprehensive extensive and the furniture and beds very comfortable. It made for a very peaceful and memorable week away.

  • "The cottage was very comfortable and clean and had everything you needed."

    The only thing that could be made clearer was that you do think you are getting the whole house and this would include the back area, but you don't get that as the back of the house belongs to someone else. This made absolutely no difference to us but families with young children need to be aware that there is no safe outside space to play. Other than that PERFECT!

    We felt welcomed from the start with a fantastic welcome pack - the best I have ever seen, anywhere. We found a number of walks and despite being somewhat muddy coming back we felt reassured that the owners accepted this could happen and had provided a place for footwear and wet gear. We had a fabulous week. Thank you.

    I needed to ask the owner a couple of questions and they were extremely responsive and a pleasure to deal with. The property was very well equipped and was really comfortable for our holiday. The property was exactly as described and highly recommended, although the lack of an outside space (clearly described in the listing) would have been harder to deal with had the weather been as hot as earlier in the summer.

    The mattress in the master bedroom was particularly comfortable. The village was beautiful with everything you needed. We were a little cold in the evening as the heating was set and couldn’t be adjusted and we did not want the hassle of lighting the wood burner, this wouldn’t be a problem in the warmer months. We parked right outside the front which was very convenient. Overall a fantastic property.

  • "Sykes are very easy to book through and information thorough."

    With regards to the property: Amazingly covid thoughtful owners. As hermits for the last 18m we were worried about a break away. But all the covid precautions are in place and we were immediately at ease. Very good location and the parking for a large family car was easy. The pre-arrival info from the owner was brilliant. House was very well furnished. (The photos online need updating as the house has been refurbished since the current photos - so you will be in for a wonderful surprise. ) We didn't require one on this visit, but the only suggestion I'd make to the owners is to consider installing a washing machine & drier or washer/drier, possibly in the spacious bathroom. Overall it was really relaxing staying here and I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in the area.

    The welcome pack was great. When I contacted the owner about the keys and asked if we could arrive earlier she said she would check with the cleaner (Kristy). She rang me and said that would be OK and that Kristy would meet us there and take our bags up to our rooms. I had told her previously that we were four ladies in our 80s. We had a wonderful time - the owner rang us during the week to see if everything was OK and said if we would like Kristy would come and take our bags down stairs when we were ready to leave (we said we could manage). Everything possible was done to ensure we had a great time and we are looking forward to go again in the not too distant future

The property

An attractive end-terrace Edwardian property, in the charming village of Thornton-le-Dale, just two miles from Pickering market town.

Ideally placed for exploring the stunning countryside of the North York Moors National Park and the many nearby attractions, it provides a very comfortable holiday home.

The sitting room retains the original high ceilings, with a large bay window overlooking the quiet street and a cosy multi fuel burner to relax around on cooler evenings.

Traditionally furnished in keeping with the age of the property, there is a modern kitchen with dining area and three family bedrooms, which are situated over the top two floors.

A five minute walk brings you to the centre of this very pretty village, with a stream meandering down the main street.

The children will love the traditional play area with its scooter park and Astroturf ball court.

Enjoy a gentle stroll around, with its array of interesting shops, tempting tea rooms, pubs and restaurants.

Walkers will delight in the many footpaths leading from the village, while a must for cyclists is nearby Dalby Forest, with numerous biking trails and adventure centre.

Two miles away is the bustling market town of Pickering, with its castle, museums and the terminus of the renowned North York Moors Steam Railway, which winds its way through the heather-clad moors to Grosmont, a wonderful day out for both young and old.

If you fancy a day on the coast, the seaside towns of Whitby, Scarborough and Filey are all within a forty-five minute drive.

With many local attractions, including Duncombe Park, Castle Howard, Rievaulx Abbey and the historic city of York, this well-placed Thornton-le-Dale holiday home provides an excellent base, any time of the year.
