About Railway Cottage

Railway Cottage is a fabulous 5 bedroom period townhouse located in the heart of a pretty North York Moors village. It is the perfect large luxury cottage in Yorkshire for families and groups of friends. And in 2014 Railway Cottage was awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for consistently excellent reviews!

This historical building actually dates back to 1793 when it was used as a Saddlers. Many of the original features have been restored including wonderful oak beams from Whitby ships and a huge inglenook fireplace in the dining room. The decor and furnishings throughout are contemporary but the inherent character of the house remains.

The accommodation is set across three floors. Downstairs you'll find a lovely open plan kitchen and dining area with a cosy wood burner in the fireplace, perfect for the colder months. There is a generous lounge complete with all of the creature comforts you would expect including a large LCD TV and DVD Player. The house also includes an MP3 docking station, Nintendo Wii, a PS3 for the kids (or the grown-ups!) and a PC available for guest's use.

There are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. The second floor has a further two bedrooms (a twin and a double with additional single bed) and a shower room with separate WC.

There is a charming patio area to the rear of the cottage which includes patio furniture and a BBQ for guest's use. The front of the property faces the Main Street in Pickering and is a delightful spot to watch the world go by.

Local Area

Railway Cottage has a fantastic location in the heart of Pickering, a beautiful North York Moors village.  Grand Georgian architecture stands alongside cosy traditional cottages to create a picture postcard location.  There are several excellent restaurants, pubs and cafes in the village, 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 village lies 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.

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 and the North Yorkshire coast, so lots of choice for day trips.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Railway Cottage! It was clean, tidy and a real home-from-home so easy to relax in. The local amenities were lovely with choice of food and drinks. The cottage was easy to find with free parking close by. We were a group of 9 women and there was plenty of room for us all. We will certainly be visiting again! :)

When we arrived at 4pm the cleaners were still in the property with bedding and towels being dried on the radiators. The whole place smelt musty and run down and in our opinion well overdue for a complete refurbishment. We did not like the property at all so we decided not to stay and checked into a local hotel.

What a wonderful cottage! We were absolutely thrilled to bits with our recent stay, and the property certainly had the wow factor. We were so comfortable, everything we could want and more. We will certainly recommend this property to our friends and family as it was faultless. Looking forward to staying there again.
