“Beautiful house in an excellent location, everything we needed for a great time”
Reviewed 5 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

We stayed as a large group and found the house really spacious, the younger ones loved playing hide and seek. The house is beautiful and great to return to after visiting the local area. We loved the sound of the steam trains and the smell of bacon from the sandwich shop over the road in the morning!

We had a fantastic day out on the North Yorkshire Moor Railway visiting Whitby and Goathland. Also visited Scarborough and York. We used the park and ride system for York which was much better than trying to find parking in the City Centre.

There are quite a few pubs in the town, some which did food but weren't really suitable for a large group (especially with children). However, the Co op is just over the road and stayed open until 10pm (very handy for topping up supplies).

Must mention The Sun Inn on Westgate. This is very much a locals pub but we were made so welcome that we visted every night. The bar staff were great and were happy for the kids to sit in the corner and play cards on the nights they came out with us. They served fantastic real ales and although they do not do food they are more than happy for you to take your fish & chips in from the local chippie!

The owners were really friendly upon arrival and all our dealings with them up to arrival were excellent. Would recommend and stay again.

Thank you for your fab review. You were a pleasure to have staying in the house and I do hope that you will consider returning again in the future. You are so right, the house is fantastic for large groups and as it is in the centre of Pickering you could park your car and leave it there for a week! Thanks again. Alison, Garry and Lillie-Beth

“Fantastic choice of property and location”

person found this review helpful

A very roomy and well presented house in a perfect location for a holiday in northern yorkshire. The old town of Pickering has enough activity and facilities to fullfil all requirements for convenience while is small enough so you arent fighting the crowds.Alison and Gary couldnt do enough to help and put a lot of effort into this house and guests. My only regret is that we didnt spend two weeks there instead of one. I thoroughly recomend this house to any one without any hesitation, you couldnt do better!
