Property code: OC-Y114

Set in the bustling and picturesque market town of Pickering, this wonderful home is perfect for a group of four friends looking to explore the North York Moors and experience the heritage railway. The town itself has a variety of independent shops, pubs, and plenty of lovely eateries to enjoy. Historic Pickering Castle is well worth a visit, or head 8 miles to Hole of Horcum (8 miles), a natural amphitheatre in the valley. Take a trip by car or on the steam train to Whitby (21 miles) and soak up the sun on the sandy beach at this seaside resort.

This cottage dates back to the 18th century and though renovated, contains its traditional character and charm. Head up a couple of steps and enter into a spacious hallway which has plenty of room for coats and boots. The lounge has a warming wood burner set in an inglenook fireplace, exposed wooden beams, and plenty of comfortable seating for cosy evenings in watching films. A contemporary kitchen/diner has everything you need to cook up a storm, while the dining area is tucked away in a cosy nook with seating for all guests. A handy cloakroom with WC completes the downstairs. Heading up the staircase with open balustrades, you will find two double bedrooms. Both of which have en-suite shower rooms with WCs, and the front bedroom overlooks the railway line.

At the rear of the cottage and down a few steps is a lovely gravelled garden. Surrounded by colourful flowers, the patio has garden furniture. Take a seat of an evening with a glass of wine and ponder the day’s events.

A lovely base for our week in Yorkshire. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The music playing as we arrived made it feel very welcoming and the goodies that were left were much appreciated. We will definitely book again if we are in the area.

The cottage is located close to the railway track, but the view is largely obscured this time of year by the foliage of the trees and wild area opposite. It is well located for the NYMR station and for the town centre. The cottage is dark inside if the sun isn't shining, but that is the nature of an old building. I personally found the bed too hRead moreard and my daughter also found her bed to be the same. I know that beds have to withstand a lot of use by different people, but it just wasn't comfortable. The cottage is well equipped and there is a range of pots and pans if you want to eat in. There is also a plethora of cleaning equipment which you need to use before you leave. It was not pointed out that we should contact the owner 24 hours in advance, so with only one bed made up as there were only two people coming to stay, the owner was put to the inconvenience of returning with additional bedding. The management company should make this clear, but don't, so be warned. Parking, via a permit left in the property, was good and readily available at the end of the day. There is a welcome basket of food and a bottle left for clients but we were unable to take advantage of these due to special dietary requirements. For a train enthusiast, you couldn't wish for a better located property. Be aware though, that if you like a lie in, trains do start running quite early in the day, so look at the timetable to see when your 'alarm call' will be activated. Hide

The details provided by Original Cottages. As much as the cottage was very nice, clean and quiet, the unloading and loading of the car was stressful as their is no car parking, you are causing traffic disruption when doing so as traffic is two-way and cars are having to stop to allow other cars coming in the opposite direction. Although we were aRead moreware that there was no parking, the picture of the road looked like it was a side road and not a main route. That was the only drawback of the property. The owners were very helpful indeed. Hide
