About the Owner

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.

Beautiful cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my dog Belle from Monday to Friday. Upon arrival I was very pleased to find a fantastic welcome pack and even something for Belle.

The cottage is very very clean and in a great location for the coast and moors. I've been coming to the area for over 20 years and this is by far the best I've stayed in.

I will not hesitate to go back.

Many thanks to Heather for allowing me to stay. You have a great place.

Cottage with lots of character

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is in a great location, clean and well maintained. The welcome hamper was first class and much appreciated. I'm sure the cottage garden is superb in the Summer months and could possibly return to enjoy it!

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely week here. Appreciated the hamper and the milk, cheese and butter left in fridge. Pickering is a lovely place with lots of lovely shops, restaurants and tea rooms. Market day is Monday, well worth a visit. The North Yorkshire Moors Railway and Beck Isle Museum are within walking distance and well worth a visit.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Pickering Nearest Train : Main line service Malton at 8 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Pickering Nearest Beach : Scarborough at 18 Miles


The coastal towns of Whitby and Scarborough are approximately a thirty to forty minute drive away.

Further Details:

The town of Pickering contains a good selection of shops including supermarket and many smaller independent shops which provide a range of goods and services. There are several banks and a Post Office. There are good pubs, cafés and restaurants within easy walking distance of the cottage. The town is home to the North York Moors Railway a heritage railway which runs steam and heritage diesel trains between Pickering and Whitby.

From the Owner

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.
