This charming, detached bungalow in Pickering, North Yorkshire, can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

The Hollies is a wonderful, detached bungalow in the market town of Pickering in North Yorkshire. The property can sleep four people in a double room, a twin room and a bathroom and there is a kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room with a gas fire. Outside there is off road parking for two cars and an enclosed garden with a patio and furniture. Set in a lovely spot, with great walking and easy links to York nearby, The Hollies is a wonderful Yorkshire holiday destination.


The property was very clean and the d?cor was of a very high standard, whilst still providing a 'home from home' feel. It was only a 5min walk into town so there was easy access to bars and restaurants and it was well placed to travel to moorland and coastal walks.
Mrs Howell

We particularly liked the warm welcome given by the owner of the Hollies on our arrival This was one of the best properties we have stayed in; everything was first class making it very warm and welcoming to return to after a days sight-seeing.
Mrs Lowe

This is a lovely bungalow with a contemporary look beautifully transformed by the owners who we met upon arrival to explain how everything worked. Parking for 2 vehicles on the drive and only a short walk into town. Facilities excellent with good quality equipment and even basics provided to keep you going like tea coffee and biscuits. Lounge a decent size with more than enough room for 4 people. Beds very comfy with plenty of hanging space in the wardrobes and mirrors in both rooms which is good if like us, you are travelling as 2 couples and both females need to put makeup on or dry their hair. The bungalow is just off the main road into Pickering with a garage and shop at the end of the road. There are a couple of supermarkets in town close to the railway station. You can use the recreation club opposite if you don't want to go far and there is a swimming pool just around the corner. We went into Picketing both nights and would recommend the Black Swan for food but book as it does get busy and they stop serving food at 8.30pm. Would also recommend the wine bar on the high street. On Saturday we drove to Helmsley which has a lovely square to walk round with 3 pubs if you get thirsty. Ventured into Pickering on the Sunday to see the arrival of the Flying Scotsman but not many shops or cafes open for the early morning arrival. Overall a fantastic place for a weekend break and I wouldn't hesitate to stop here again. Thank you Peter I will pass your booking details to friends and family.

A lovely bungalow which was decorated and furnished to a high standard by the owner. Located only a short walk from the centre of Pickering with parking at the bungalow for 2 cars which is convenient. Would highly recommend.
Mrs Painter

The Hollies is of a very high standard. We have been to Pickering many times and this is one of the best cottages we have stayed in. We particularly like Pickering in winter because we can visit so many favourite places, York, Helmsley, Malton, Whitby. Pickering is a lovely small town and we will definitely be back for next new year
