The garden is fully enclosed and there is a private parking space for one vehicle which is accessible from the rear of the property.

Please note 17 Hallgarth is a traditional cottage which as part of its charm has narrow steps, uneven floors and restricted headroom is some rooms. As it is Grade II listed major internal modifications are not permitted. Therefore we would advise that the cottage may not be suitable for guests with restricted mobility.

Please be aware. There is an increasing trend for scammers to place false listings on sites like this. As a responsible, independent property owner I would urge any potential guest to check out the existence of a property they are interested in by simply performing an online search using the property name. Scammers will rarely go to the trouble to set up fake web sites or pages on social media.

About Heather Yeabsley

My husband and I moved up to North Yorkshire in 2013 after we realised that we wanted to be in our 'holiday home' full time because we loved the area so much. We now live in Pickering and bought our cottage in the same town as an investment because we want to offer people the chance to stay in such a lovely area and enjoy it as much as we do.

We have tried to make the cottage truly a home from home and as we are in the area we are on hand to sort out any queries or problems that guests may have. We can also personally recommend places to eat and visit in and around the town.

Why Heather Yeabsley chose Pickering

This part of the country really has everything. Yorkshire is known as 'God's own County' and you can see why. We are at the foot of the North York Moors, one of my two favourite places and close to the coast with the seaside town of Whitby( my other favourite place) a thirty minute drive away.

Pickering itself is a lovely little market town with plenty of good places to eat and a good variety of shops, including a couple of supermarkets and plenty of smaller independent shops.

What makes this cottage unique

We have tried to make our cottage as comfortable and homely as possible. If is equipped to a high standard because I believe that when you are on holiday you want to be able to spend your time relaxing and enjoying yourself so you want things like a dishwasher and a washing machine to get the annoying jobs out of the way as quickly and easily as possible. The cottage is equipped with free WiFi and a Freeview TV with a separate DVD player so technology still exists even in Yorkshire. For those of you seeking an escape from technology there is a comprehensive library of books and a selection of board games.

  • 5 of 5

17 Hall Garth is located very conveniently for Pickering town centre. It is a very cosy, nicely furnished cottage with all mod cons.

The owner couldn't have been more helpful.

We had a lovely stay and look forward to a return.

Awesome holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What an absolute delightful cottage in the centre of town, and with such peace and tranquillity it was the perfect home from home for us. The hamper was a pleasant surprise on arrival and the enclosed garden was perfect for a drink outside in the evenings whilst the dog could just play about with no fear of him getting hurt. The cottage itself was maintained to a very high standard and we look forward to spending our next short break there again. Thank you.
