“Brilliant location with lots to see and do in the area.”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Brilliant location with lots to see and do in the area. The longhouse has a fabulous main lounge with French doors that open out onto the pretty seating space- perfect sunny spot for breakfast. There are some excellent pubs, I particularly recommend the Cropton brewery which we cycled to. The owners Gillian and Ivan were exceptionally warm and friendly and recommended some wonderful walks and cycle rides. This is a good stay for anyone active or, indeed, anyone who simply wishes for some peace and quiet.

“Lovely cottage in amazing market town”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in August 2013

Pickering and the surrounding area were an incredible surprise. The woods (a few minutes drive) and secluded beaches (about 30min) were stunning. We speny a few days with a group of friends in this cottage, just a short walk from the town centre. The accommodation was clean, spacious and really charming. The hosts were lovely, welcoming and helpful. Planning to return later this year.

“Great place to stay with friends”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in August 2012

Stayed with a group of friends from school days and had a great weekend. The large kitchen was ideal for shared cooking duties and the double height cruck beamed ceiling lounge has real 'wow' factor, the doors out to a lovely sunny courtyard, were well used. Easy walk into Pickering for supplies and local cafés etc - the Castle and the North York Moors railway are added extras. A great base to explore North Yorkshire from including the moors for more serious walking and Whitby for sea air and good fish and chips!

“Great location with lots of character.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 for a stay in July 2013

Lovely property with lots of character, especially the fabulous lounge with vaulted ceiling and big fireplace. Lots of nooks & crannies & original beams give this a medieval feel yet it has all the mod cons. Within walking distance of the town and some great local walks, and an easy drive to Whitby and York.
