This lovely house in Pickering sleeps six people in three bedrooms.

Platform 2 & 3/4 is a lovely terraced house opposite the steam railway line in Pickering. With three bedrooms, two doubles and a zip/link twin, it sleeps six people comfortably. The house also has a bathroom, kitchen and a sitting room with woodburner and dining area. Outside, there is both off road and roadside parking, and a small courtyard garden. Platform 2 & 3/4 is a great base for a family retreat, and most definitely for train lovers.


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

The cottage was lovely and made an excellent base. The owner was also very helpful.

The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped. It's an ideal situation to explore the coast and moors. Booking was easy. I shall definitely book again.
