“Wow! What a find!”
Reviewed November 30, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

A warm welcome to a fantastic cottage.
We arrived to find lights and music on, tea pot and cake ready and waiting.
Staying with our 4 year old son, we had forgotten to pack any toys (in a rush to pack). Within 10 minutes of arriving, Lucy and one of her sons came to the rescue with 2 big boxes, one containing books, the other trains and tracks.
The cottage is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable.
The photos make the place look good, but it is better 'in real life.'
Perfectly situated for a stay in Pickering or as a base for exploring other parts of the North Yorkshire area.
Off road parking next to the cottage (Lucy even let us leave our car there for a few hours after 'checking out', instead of paying to park in Pickering).
We've stayed in numerous B&Bs, hotels and self-catering accommodation in the North Yorkshire area and this one beats them all.
Thanks Lucy and Family. X

“A wonderful place to stay”

In the spirit of full disclosure I am related to the owner and operator of this holiday cottage. However, all natural biases aside, this is a wonderful place to stay in North Yorkshire. The cottage is beautifully furnished and wonderfully equipped with everything you could need for your stay. The village of Pickering is very quaint with a wide variety of shops restaurants and pubs. The cottage is within easy walking distance of the central of the village. This is a wonderful place to stay when vacationing in this part of the world.

This cottage is brilliant. Just a couple of minutes walk into town. Set back (behind the double gates) from the road, so nice and private with parking.
Lucy made the cottage really welcoming, there's everything you'd need.
We took our 11 month old daughter and Lucy made it baby friendly by putting up stair gates, supplying a box of toys/books/DVDs, highchair and travel cot.
We also took our dog, and the cottage was perfect for her as the courtyard is secure.
Would certainly recommend.

“Lovely Holiday Property in a great location”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Just returned from a 1 week stay at this property and could not really fault it. The property is well maintained and the facilities are great, My kids loved having wi-fi for their gadgets

It is also nice to have all linen included in the rental, along with a dishwasher.

The welcome cake for when we arrived went down very well after a long drive to Pickering.

Only a couple of very minor issues, the TV is not the latest, and did not have an HDMI connection, so could not connect my laptop to play downloaded programs. Also we arrived on an unusually hot weekend and upstairs was really hot, so it would of been nice to have a couple of fans for the night, but both these are really niceties and are not a critism of the property.

“Fantastic holiday cottage, central to all of Yorkshires amenities.”
Reviewed August 1, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A beautiful, well equipped, private cottage situated in the heart of Pickering close to the castle for ample dog walking facilities. We enjoyed a fantastic weeks break here, very comfortable beds and everything you need. Lucy and Paul made our stay very welcome from arrival to our departure and couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. A lovely touch upon our arrival was a beautiful freshly baked cake and tea making facilities, most welcome after a long journey. We thoroughly enjoyed chilling out at night with a bottle of red and the log burning fire to create a warm, cosy ambience. We will definitely return to Castle Lodge in the future. Thankyou again, Lucy and Paul.

“Excelent accomodation in a strategic good spot”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The coach house is excelent for a longer stay in North Yorkshire. You can cyle the Moors, steam to the sea and take the coach (bus) to York. No dull moment in Pickering.

Ideally placed cottage in Pickering with all the amenities you could wish for within easy walking distance. Cottage is well equipped, comfortable and cosy. On the weekend we stayed we had sleet and snow whilst on the North Yorks Moors Moorlander Pullman coach which was nothing short of amazing (including the sceanery - very pretty). The wood burning stove when we returned to Castlegate was a real treat - loved every moment, thank you to our hosts for welcoming us with cake and refreshments.
