Cottage in Pickering, North Yorkshire Moors, England - Cosy 4-Star Cottage Ideally Situated In The Pretty Market Town Of Pickering, Close To York And Coast

Lavender Cottage can be found on Eastgate, a tree-lined street just a short stroll from the centre of Pickering. It has 2 bedrooms and is fully equipped for self-catering guests, providing a real home from home for visitors to this beautiful part of the country. Whether you're looking to explore the stunning Yorkshire Moors or visit the coastal towns of Whitby, Scarborough or Filey - Lavender is the perfect base and offers a warm welcome from your travels. Alternatively, just want to get away from it all and take things at a slower pace, then bring your favourite box sets and settle in.

About Ann Mathe

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!

Ann Mathe purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Ann Mathe chose Pickering

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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 !

Clean and comfortable well equipped with beautiful garden. Close to local emenities and pretty town

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The enclosed garden was perfect for our two Jacks. Lavender Cottage was clean well equipped and very comfortable. Beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard. Pickering town centre within easy walking distance with great restaurants and gift shops. We visited Whitby and Scarborough and would have to say preferred Scarborough. We went on the steam train to Goathland and the train journey was very pleasant and we were able to take our dogs. There is so much to do and see in the area and hope to return in the near future. The weather was glorious which added to the lovely holiday. Thank you.

Good position in walking distance of the shops and restaurants etc. Easy parking on road .

  • 4 of 5

A very comfortable and well appointed cottage. Had everything we needed including WiFi which our grandson was very pleased about.

A nice touch was the milk in the fridge and tea bags and biscuits. We didn't use the garden but would think that in summer this would be a nice place to relax in.

There are a lot of interesting places to visit which are less than an hour's drive away so we were not short of things to do. We had an excellent meal at the Black Swan in Pickering one evening. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

Beautifully appointed, with everything you could imagine there for our use. Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We came for three nights to enjoy the NYMR Steam Gala weekend. Lavender Cottage was just a short walk to the station, with many restaurants and pubs in between to tempt us. We really can't say enough about how enjoyed the experience and will definitely book again when we return.

Fantastic place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, my wife, son and Jack Russell really enjoyed the place, perfect for our week's holiday. The cottage is small but really had all the space you need.

It is perfectly situated in the picturesque town of Pickering and even has a general store about 75 metres away. The town's pubs and eateries satisfied us on every occasion and the shops are a delight.

It's perfectly situated for the coastal resorts of Scarborough and Whitby amongst others but there is plenty to do in the area.

The garden area of the cottage was superb and we had three barbecues and sat out enjoying the lovely weather we had.

The host was communicative and friendly and the cottage was stocked with home essentials, which we used and replaced in readiness for the next occupant.

The minor moan was the head room, I'm six foot two and three doors are about five foot eleven, but I only connected once. The other thing is the host sells themselves short! There is a selection of great DVDs, it has a sound bar, which I connected my streaming source to and had great music and the WiFi is super fast and faultless.. We would stay again without a doubt.

Stylish cottage in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Pickering is an interesting town in its own right and a good base from which to explore the area. The weather during our week here wasn't great but didn't dampen the fun.

We enjoyed a variety of cuisines dinning in the local pubs and restaurants, but also used the two medium sized supermarkets and local independent shops to source ingredients for cooking in the well-equipped kitchen.

It’s called a cottage but other than the second bedroom all the rooms were spacious. The garden was an unexpected bonus as it was usable even in the rain.

Location

Coast/Beach:

30 minutes drive to Scarborough. Filey, Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay are a little further but well worth the visit.

Distances:

30 minute drive from York and many visitor attractions.

The Railway Station at Pickering is the base for the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway and travels to Whitby, Goathland, Grosmont.

The Great Dalby Forest is only 5 miles away and Flamingo Land only 4 miles away.

York is around 30 minutes away and the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Village is on your way!

You are within easy reach of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and there are lots of small market towns or coastal villages.

Further Details:

You will find a local supermarket, pubs, restaurants and many interesting shops in Pickering and make sure you visit the Market if you're here on a Monday.
