About the property

Cottage in Newbridge, Nr. Pickering, North Yorkshire, Gateway to Yorkshire Moors National Park, Walk to Pickering for shops, pubs and restaurants

This former railway workers cottage will appeal to steam railway enthusiasts, walkers and families alike.

The cottage is double-glazed, gas central heating & constant hot water, fully equipped kitchen & lounge/diner with satellite TV, open fire & additional sofa-bed. 2 bedrooms (1 double/twin & 1 with adult bunks).

About The Owner

We are a family of four, living in the beautiful South West of Ireland, but originally from England. Our extended families mostly live in the North of England and manage the cottage for us. We enjoy outdoor activities such as walking, cycling and the beach. A holiday is an important time for families, and we aim to provide an experience that exceeds expectations! We are proud that we get a large number of repeat visits to the cottage through many 'word-of-mouth' recommendations.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2009

Why The Owner chose Ryedale District

We visit the UK a few times a year and were looking for a base that we could also rent out as a holiday cottage. Railway cottage met all our criteria. It is in a peaceful hamlet within the national park & is close to the beach & many tourist attractions. We believe that we have the best of both worlds in that there is an easy walk into Pickering, which is a picturesque, small market town, with atmospheric pubs and restaurants, but being in a peaceful area, surrounded by fields, quiet lanes and woodland walks. There is great wildlife around, and we often get visited by a woodpecker & other wild birds! The cottage has been converted and modernised in 2009 and is extremely well equipped. From the moment you arrive you will feel like you are on holiday - you cannot help but relax!

What makes this cottage unique

Railway cottage is ideal for families, and will be a memorable holiday. It offers a rare experience to watch steam trains, on the most popular steam railway in the UK, from the comfort of the living room and bedroom as they pass slowly past the cottage. Have a look at the video on our website! Most visitors have said that they end up shouting 'train' every day, rushing to the window to wave to the passengers to see which of the magnificent steam trains is passing! The cottage is very cosy, comfortable and warm. You will be well looked after, and we have been told that we offer great value! Since first renting out the property in March 2009, we have been booked almost every week, mostly to families and train enthusiasts, and we hope you decide to visit!

Guestbook comments from the owner

From the children's point of view it was fabulous to have steam trains going past. It was extremely well equipped. From my point of view it was spotless and had a lovely welcoming bottle of wine!!'



We enjoyed our stay in your warm & cosy cottage & the bed was very comfortable. The situation was perfect for train spotters either through the window, a quick dash outside, or by the level crossing. We did not need for anything!



It was one of those holidays that flew by and we wished we had more days. We had the best week ever and loved Railway cottage. We loved the peace and quiet, & the trains. We enjoyed watching the various birds on the feeder. Cannot think of anything we did not like about the Cottage & it was by far the nicest we have ever stayed in. Clean comfortable and fresh but still with character!



*** The cottage was very comfortable & the kitchen had everything you could need. The goodies left by Lizze were a lovely touch, the homemade jam was delicious.'

Reasonably comfortable and well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunately due to illness on my husbands part and an accident on my part we were not able to go to Pickering.

We have stayed 4 or 5 times in previous years and really like the accommodation. We like being so close to the steam trains and the accommodation suits our needs.

Steam Train Enthusiasts Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a lovely clean well equipped cottage with everything you could need. But it''s the location which really sets it apart. If you like steam trains, you will love this place. It's position, right next to the North York Moors Railway makes it perfect as the massive trains trundle past on their journeys throughout the day.
