About the Owner

We fell in love with Pickering on our first visit and have returned so often that we felt like we were already living here. After spending many a weekend or longer when we could manage it, we finally decided to relocate and now live about 15 minutes from Pickering. We still love visiting Lavender but now that we are not booking it ourselves, we would like to encourage more people to visit this lovely part of the country. We have tried to provide a real home from home in the cottage and we have received lovely reviews from all of our guests. They have also provided a book of comments, recommending places to visit or sharing the highlight of their trips - please do come and stay and add your experiences - Yorkshire is definitely for sharing!

Comfortable and quirky

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Lavender, especially the cosy fire in the evenings as it was such a cold week in March . We found everything as described online and the cottage was clean and welcoming on arrival. The cottage is very well equipped and well-maintained. We appreciated the comfortable beds and the general high quality of the interior. Shame we cold not enjoy the garden more - it must be lovely in the summer! Thanks again to Anne who was very helpful on the I

initial contact - we can thoroughly recommend this cottage.

Perfection in Pickering

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is idyllic, relaxing, perfectly equipped and decorated to a very high standard. It is always spotlessly clean and the owners can't do enough to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We have visited before and would visit again in a heartbeat.

Last time we visited we stayed with friends who were blown away by this lovely little cottage- we even got to use the garden this time which is excellently scaped and perfectly secluded for dining alfresco.

Within easy distance of Goathland, Whitby, Hemsley and Malton you are never stuck for things to do and the pubs and restaurants in Pickering itself are fab too. But if you fancy having dinner at the cottage you will have everything you need to make a tasty treat.......or the takeaways are yummy too!!

Pay lavender cottage a visit and you are sure to be pleased as punch!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage and we have used several times now. It has all the facilities that you need and is just a short walk from the centre of Pickering. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and the cottage is also dog friendly. The cottage also has a secure garden to the rear of the property that is very private and a decking area for sitting out in the summer. Pickering itself has a lot to offer with excellent eating places and lots of different pubs to choose from and of course the steam trains. The walking in the area is fantastic with Goathland just a 20 minute drive away and the seaside (Filey and Scarborough) a 40 minute drive. Overall we would recommend anyone to stay at the cottage and the area.

Location

From the Owner

We first came to Pickering a few years ago and stayed at the White Swan after a hectic Christmas and New year. We sat at the table in the window with the fire blazing and the coffee steaming, watching the snow settle outside and we were hooked! We have been coming back to this area year on year and we fell in love with Lavender cottage the minute we walked in and we hope that you will too.We love to wander round the Castle or the many Antique shops and a visit to the Flea Market is a must! Soak up the atmosphere over tea and cake in one of the many tea shops and just watch the world go by. If it's a special occasion, why not book dinner or afternoon tea on the Steam Train to Whitby or dine in the White Swan.

Facilities

From the Owner

The cottage has many original features (stone walls, beamed ceilings) and has been renovated to a high standard. We love spending time in the cottage and after a hectic week at work, there is nothing more welcoming than a bottle of wine in front of the cosy fire during the colder months or sat under the gazebo in the summer. You can escape the madness for a few days and enjoy the warm and friendly welcome that Pickering offers. The cottage is perfectly situated for restaurants and pubs. The deli provides freshly cooked meals which can be re-heated and enjoyed in the comforts of the cottage and the black pudding sausage rolls and scotch eggs must be tried !
