“A brilliant find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We stayed here with a group of friends for a mini type of reunion of old work colleagues and their partners. It was a really good find. Pickering is a lovely place that I'd definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get away, but with plenty of amenities. Add to this the Bramwoods and you have a fantastic weekend. The standard of the house was well above my expectations; I could have just chilled in our room all day it was that comfortable an environment. Then there are the proprietors, Helene & Richard, who were welcoming, fun and very accommodating - they made you feel right at home. This isn't a B&B, it's something more than that.

My wife and I stayed with two of our friends at Bramwood Guest House having travelled on the North Yorkshire Pullman to celebrate a birthday. Helene & Richard who own the Guest House are really friendly and very hospitable. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the breakfast is absolutely delicious. We would recommend it highly to anyone. We will stay here again.

This property is 2 minutes walk from the center of Pickering. The room was very comfortable, with beautiful bedding, luxury complimentary toiletries and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was beautifully cooked using local produce. The atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. I would certainly return and recommend Bramwood to friends.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the lower level if you have any mobility issues.

I spent 8 days at Bramwood's Tack Room cottage and it was a perfect experience in every way. Helene and Richard are ideal B&B owners, always smiling and helpful, and producing the most delicious breakfasts in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. My cottage had a comfortable bed with quality linens and the most luxurious huge bathtub, as well as everything else I could possibly have needed. The garden was a lovely place to sit and read and the 3-minute walk into town was a highlight of every day. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else and look forward to my next visit.

Many thanks for taking the time to post a review, it was a real pleasure to meet you and we look forward to seeing you again - hopefully next year? We are ideally situated for the town centre, being as close to the centre as you could be, but having the benefit of being on a quiet side street.
Love your profile pic by the way!

We will definitely return to Bramwood. It has a lovely relaxed and informal atmosphere, the room was spotless and very comfortable. The Breakfast was excellent! This B&B is in the heart of town, (there is parking to the front and rear) very quiet with a lovely garden where we sat and had afternoon tea with delicious homemade Lemon cake. Thankyou for a wonderful weekend we will definitely be back.

Stayed at Bramwood 31/08 for two nights. Would thoroughly recommend staying at this lovely B&B in the centre of Pickering. Great location as only a minutes walk to all of the towns amenities. Hosts Helene & Richard made our stay very comfortable and were warmly welcomed and made our stay very enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble.
Our room (2) was lovely, spacious and extremely comfortable with all the things you would expect. The room was spotlessly clean (infact the cleanest accommodation i've ever stayed in).
The breakfasts were superb. Fabulous choice with daily specials as an added bonus. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this great value B&B....you won't be disappointed.
