Superb cottage within walking distance of town and all the lovely shops. Just across the road from the steam railway so it was beautiful to hear the chuff chuff chuff of the engines. We used it as a base to explore the wonderful coast and beautiful forest and moors around Pickering. What a wonderful part of the world! We loved our stay, the cottage was warm, well laid out and really clean. Our seven year old little boy would move in tomorrow if he could! If you walk up behind the cottage you can walk around Pickering Castle and then through to a brilliant walking/biking route which was great fun. The artisan chocolate shop in Pickering also does amazing ice cream. Really friendly owner who responded quickly to any queries. All in all one of our favorite holiday cottage holidays.
