From the moment we arrived we felt at home in this lovely cottage. It is very close to the centre of Pickering and just a couple of minutes walk down to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. The cottage is well equipped; the bed linen and towels are very good quality and we appreciated all the little extras such as the cake on arrival, the basic toiletries and a good selection of cleaning products. It was also very quiet at night which was an unexpected bonus. Off road parking and the private location make this a perfect spot for a short break or a longer holiday. We hope to return before too long! Highly recommended.
Excellent base for walkers. Pickering woods walk was lovely. Pickering is lovely town with good amenities. Easy reach of Whitby, Filey and York. Used the train from Malden to York excellent service. 13 miles to Helmsley a lovely market town. This was our second visit.
My husband and I have just spent a week here at this lovely pet friendly accommodation. This is our 4th visit and we will return again. Everything you need is here at the cottage. Perfect location for a walk into town, taking the Steam Train up to Whitby, walks around the Castle/woods and surrounding area and then also for visiting nearby places of interest. So much to see and do. We can highly recommend staying here. Thank you Lucy and Paul for their hospitality.
What a lovely place to stay for the weekend, both the house and the town! The communication I received from the owner was great, and we found the house using her directions without any problem at all. The house was warm and cosy when we arrived, and we were very happy to find a chocolate cake and tea bags waiting for us when we walked in! A very nice touch after travelling for 4hrs.
The kitchen is very well equipped, and the beds were very comfortable. We put the fire on for Saturday night, and it was so toasty inside. The house is only a few minutes walk from both the town centre and the castle, so really is perfectly positioned.
Pickering itself is a lovely town. I spent quite a long time walking around it on Sat evening whilst the kids and hubby watched a film, and it is a very pretty place with lovely shops and restaurants/pubs. We travelled to the coast to have an afternoon at Robin Hood's Bay on the Saturday, and it only took about 30 mins in the car, as far as I can remember. A really lovely place to spend the weekend, and we would definitely consider staying at this lovely house again. Thank you for putting us up!
Castlegate coach house is in a great location - minutes away from the Castle, the station and the high street. Beautifully clean and well equipped accommodation - ideal for the two of us and our dog, but with room to sleep another 2 people if needed. Welcome addition of an outdoor seating area (although we didn't make much use of it as the weather was chilly). There are some lovely walks in the vicinity and Pickering is well served with dog friendly pubs. We took the train to Whitby for the day which was lovely and well worth the trip.
I've lost count of the number of times we've stayed here and hope for lots more holidays here in the future. The accommodation is extremely comfortable in a great location and dogs are welcome. Pickering is perfect for visiting the N Yorkshire Moors and the beautiful coast with great places to eat, walk and just have a good time
This is a lovely self-catering cottage which is sparkling clean with excellent soft furnishings. It has a very good free Wi-Fi and use of the phone which is a bonus! There is a TV and a separate DVD player. It is well appointed and the kitchen has everything you need including a washing machine and dishwasher. The owners live next door and are very helpful. The cottage is in a quiet location but close to the High Street, the market on a Monday and a short walk to the beautiful North Yorkshire Moors steam railway which goes to Whitby. When you arrive you will find tea and a wonderful cake to greet you! This is the second time we have stayed here and we just can't fault it. We have already booked for our third stay!
