“Home away from home”
Reviewed May 7, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Had a fantastic stay at Kings Haven Cottage in Pickering. Location is amazing, close to local amenities and attractions (like Flamingo land and Dalby Forest).

The cottage was perfect for two; spotlessly clean and tidy. The owner (John) had taken great care in the place and it was furnished to a high standard.

A private parking space to the rear of the cottage was a bonus!

On arrival we were greeted with bread, milk, eggs and home-made preserve, along with a personalised welcome note and weather forecast. The cottage was equipped with everything, even local takeaway/restaurant menus, maps of the area and an abundance of leaflets.

It s clear from the comments and "thank you" cards in the guest book that others have enjoyed this little gem, too.

Can't speak more highly of John, who arranged an early check-in so we could watch the Tour de Yorkshire race.

Fabulous place, we will be back!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed April 17, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

A truly beautiful cottage that is equipped with everything you could possibly need. People have reviewed as a home from home, it isn't, it's a holiday from home, and that is the reason for not staying at home. It has the most comfortable bed and pillows you could ask for. It is immaculately clean and very well decorated. It is situated perfectly for shops and eateries. It is also extremely well priced, which makes it even more attractive. Don't worry about anything, just book it and then enjoy. You won't be disappointed.

Great place, beautifully and thoughtfully renovated. Cosy and very welcoming. This is our third visit, perfect for the NYMR, shopping and the super coastline. Thank you for helping us to unwind yet again and restore the sanity!

“chilled out ...cosy & warm”

person found this review helpful

This is a beautiful cottage sympathetically renovated. We stayed over New Year and found it really cosy comfy and warm. The parking at the rear was a bonus as Pickering can have parking issues. The bed was sooo comfortable with good quality bedding. The chill out area on the landing was a bonus. The kitchen was well equipped with fridge freezer...washing machine... Dish washer...full oven & hob. One of the nicest touches was the welcome pack consisting of bread of your choice...butter...fresh orange juice....home made preserve...tea & coffee...milk & sorry if I've forgotten the rest!! And to top it all a bottle of champers to see in the new year. Thank you John for a very good stay.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed November 9, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

From the moment John contacted us to confirm the booking we knew we were going to be very well looked after. The directions to the private off road parking area were easy to follow and the key was waiting for us when we arrived.

The kitchen was very well equipped with quality cookware, utensils and tableware. It was large, modern and spotlessly clean with a fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Perfect to cook all our meals at home if we had chosen to. The welcome hamper was a special treat with fresh eggs from the owners' hens.

The rest of the cottage was thoughtfully refurbished with a modern bathroom and more traditional lounge/diner on the ground floor and a separate bedroom and relaxation area upstairs. The central heating was very welcome on a cold November evening and very quick to make the cottage toasty warm.

We loved every minute at Kings Haven and would return in a heartbeat.

“Well-appointed, charming cottage in a great location.”

We had a wonderful welcome to this charming cottage/ terrace house. The 'welcome pack' was much appreciated. Pickering is an excellent location from which to explore Yorkshire and our hosts provided much information and great advice on walks, restaurants etc.
