Relaxing Christmas Break
This cottage, as already identified by other reviewers, is perfectly placed. The NYMR is across the road, the main town around the corner, there are lovely walks on the doorstep, coastal towns of Whitby, Filey and Scarborough just 30min away, Flamingoland 10min away.
There are some lovely little shops in the town and a market on Mondays. Supplies can be bought from Co-op or Lidl, both within walking distance from the cottage.
The cottage is spacious, yet cosy, warm and clean. There is plenty of storage space. The beds are comfy and bedrooms spacious. An added bonus is the provision of Wifi.
The owner provides bed linen and towels and sets you up with milk tea and coffee - so you can have a cuppa without searching for your own stuff!
Downstairs provides plenty of space for toddlers and dogs to run around and the laminate / tiled flooring means most mishaps can be soon cleared up!
Free parking for one car is provided 5 min walk away and it's a pleasant walk through the NYMR station to get back to the cottage. Half price parking is available for second cars - you just need to tell the car park attendant when you enter.
The little yard is pleasant and would be lovely for a summer evening and the multi-fuel fire is great for cooler nights.
We loved the quirky train theme in the decor.
The owner gives recommendations for eating / drinking and these were spot on! We ate at The White Swan (pricy but worth it) and drank at The Black Swan (good atmosphere and attractive decor.)
We really really enjoyed our stay and have returned home re-charged and ready for 2019!
This lovely cottage is located opposite NYMR. Fantastic location, if you enjoy the steam engines. Had a very enjoyable week here. The cottage is deceptively spacious, clean and cosy, with a lovely log burner for cold evenings in.
Pickering is a beautiful market town with everything you need. There are plenty of places to walk dogs if you have them in tow, and most of the pubs are dog friendly.
Would definitely recommend as a perfect place to stay.
Great property in a perfect location
This deceptively large holiday cottage is situated in an ideal location opposite the railway station next to the main high street in Pickering. We found the house to be clean, well maintained and very presentable. The owner was very friendly and proactively contacted us to provide key details, local information and mobile numbers in case of any issues (of which we had none). The house is pet friendly with a secure back garden however there was no sign of previous pet visits making it still more than suitable for visitors without pets. FOC on street parking is available directly outside of the properly outside of the hours of 8-6, and 1 hr parking is available within these times. A parking pass is available for the Trout Farm which is about 900yds up the road to use as and when required.
A great cottage in a lovely location, we would definitely return!
A brilliant holiday cottage and a lot more space than appears from outside. Nice compact back garden. Everything you need and want for a holiday cottage
