“Perfect relaxing large cottage”
Reviewed September 11, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We spent a wonderful bank holiday weekend here with friends and our dog. Ideal location for walking into pickering or short drive to Dalby forest for excellent cycling and walking routes
Cottage is much larger than we thought and has everything you could need for a relaxing weekend. Although the wifi was intermittent there is excellent 3g phone signal

“Great Cosy location.”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Found as a last minute trip for 4 adults & 3 kids!
The owner was very helpful & accommodating with our short notice and reduced day request.
Cottage is ideally located for the town of Pickering and other local trips & visits.
Rooms are big and spacious, great cosy nights with the log burning fire on the go.
Beds are very comfortable.
As the description says some doorways are low and the floors upstairs are a little uneven.
Would Defo go back!

“fantastic holiday in amazing house”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just come back from a fantastic week in the Longhouse. It really has the wow factor and was incredibly well equipped and comfortble...especiall the beds. Gill and Ivan were very friendly and welcoming and always ready with helpful advice and information regarding the local area. It was great to have a couple of nearby walks for the dog and we found the town which is a ten minute stroll away friendly and with enough things to see for our teenage kids. Us adults enjoyed the large kitchen table and cooking on the range,while the big tv was a hit with the younger lot. The amazing scenery of the moors on the drive to Whitby was a highlite.

“Brilliant location with lots to see and do in the area.”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Brilliant location with lots to see and do in the area. The longhouse has a fabulous main lounge with French doors that open out onto the pretty seating space- perfect sunny spot for breakfast. There are some excellent pubs, I particularly recommend the Cropton brewery which we cycled to. The owners Gillian and Ivan were exceptionally warm and friendly and recommended some wonderful walks and cycle rides. This is a good stay for anyone active or, indeed, anyone who simply wishes for some peace and quiet.

“Lovely cottage in amazing market town”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 for a stay in August 2013

Pickering and the surrounding area were an incredible surprise. The woods (a few minutes drive) and secluded beaches (about 30min) were stunning. We speny a few days with a group of friends in this cottage, just a short walk from the town centre. The accommodation was clean, spacious and really charming. The hosts were lovely, welcoming and helpful. Planning to return later this year.
