About Dove Cottage

***Just Launched June 2017!***

Welcome to Dove Cottage, a charming 3-storey traditional cottage set in the pretty market town of Pickering. This lovely little cottage is perfect for couples and small families who enjoy town and country life, with lots of cafes and restaurants on your doorstep and the stunning North York Moors National Park just a few miles away...

Dove Cottage is set within a terraced row just a few minutes' walk from Pickering town centre. It is Grade II listed and retains much of its historic charm, with beamed ceilings and original features throughout giving it a cosy authentic feel.

Step inside to discover a good-sized lounge featuring a beautiful inglenook fireplace and wood-burner. There's a comfy sofa to curl up on and two easy chairs you can pull up to the fire each evening. Pop open a bottle of red, unwind and catch up with your loved ones. For your evening entertainment there's a TV with Freeview, a DVD Player and MP3 docking station. Wi-Fi is also provided if you want to catch up online.

Make your way through to the rear of the cottage to find the kitchen / dining room. This is a lovely bright space with an open tread staircase leading upstairs. The kitchen has cream shaker-style units, a white porcelain sink, gas hob, microwave and electric oven. There is also a washer / dryer and freezer across the courtyard to the rear of the cottage. The dining table seats up to 4 and offers a pleasant space to enjoy dining together. Pick up some Yorkshire produce from one of the local shops in Pickering and settle down to a holiday feast.

Both bedrooms in Dove Cottage are upstairs. The gorgeous master bedroom is on the first floor and offers generous proportions, a King-size bed, cast iron fireplace, original wooden floorboards, beams overhead and a charming window seat to watch village life go by. The house bathroom is next door. There's a bath with a shower overhead, perfect if you fancy a long hot soak each evening.

Head up to the top floor to discover the second bedroom. Another spacious room with wooden floorboards, this time offering twin beds which can also be configured as a super-king if requested. The comfy chair up here also converts to a single sofa bed should you need it.

Please contact the owner directly to confirm how you would like the beds to be configured if different from standard set up.

Outside the cottage you'll find a small courtyard with patio furniture offering a sheltered space for al fresco dining. It's also a nice spot to take your morning coffee in the warmer months, easing yourself into the day over the daily papers.

Local Area

Dove Cottage has a fantastic location in the heart of Pickering, a beautiful North York Moors market town.  Grand Georgian architecture stands alongside cosy traditional cottages to create a picture postcard setting.  There are several excellent restaurants, pubs and cafes in the town, all within a stone's throw from the cottage. 

The wonderful North York Moors Railway starts in Pickering (the station itself is just a few hundred yards away) where you can catch a steam train to Whitby and back again through some of the most picturesque countryside in Yorkshire.

Beyond the town lies Dalby Forest and the amazing North York Moors, a landscape of gentle rolling hills of heather, ancient woodland and lazy rivers winding through lush green valleys.  If you want to get away from it all take a trip to the top of the high central moorlands.  Also a great option if walking is your thing.  For families the lure of Flamingo Land may be difficult to resist with its high octane rides and wild animals and Go Ape and Dalby cycling trails are a short distance away.

In addition to Pickering there are many well-heeled towns and villages dotted about the Moors, where honey-coloured sandstone buildings lend warm contrast to the deep purple and green of the surrounding hills.  The beautiful market town of Helmsley is close by and is well worth a visit. If you fancy a little pampering you'll find a fantastic day Spa here; the Verbena Spa.  Perfect for a little me time indulgence! 

You're also close to Castle Howard, York, Scarborough and the North Yorkshire coast with the RSPB nature reserve at Bempton, for keen sea bird watchers. So lots of choice for day trips

Whitley Bay GB Family
Dove cottage is in a perfect location for the many shops and places to visit. The beds were very comfortable and we all had a peaceful nights sleep. The street noise was not an issue. However, cleanliness was not as it should have been. The grill was full of grease and the lamp bases in the bedrooms were dusty. The cottage was very cold on the first night/morning as the heating had been switched off. At this time of year I would have expected it to have been set to come on at some point. A dishwasher would be nice to add to the kitchen at some point. I`m afraid we found the property over priced for what it is.

Small but very cosy and nicely decorated cottage, well equipped and perfectly located to enjoy Pickering and the North York moors. A dishwasher would be a plus and the main road where sits the cottage can be busy. Excellent stay overall, with very good dining options just a few steps away.

Lovely cottage with beautiful decor. Very comfortable and every need considered.
Fabulous location - lots to do on your doorstep but also within easy reach of Darby Forest, Filey beach, etc...
Communication with the owners was excellent and the welcome basket was a lovely touch!
Cannot recommend highly enough.
