You've catered to our every need and we can't thank you enough - also thanks for the cakes and mile. What a lovely gesture! Thank you."

Beautiful Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful holiday at Daisy Cottage. The cottage is well equipped and ideally placed being just a short stroll to Pickering high street. The view from the front windows over to the steam train station was particularly loved by our boys. We also found it to be a great base for exploring the North York Moors. We loved it so much we will be returning next year.

Wonderful cosy & cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four who had a lovely stay in Daisy Cottage in Pickering. Great location as Pickering is a busy little village with good choice of pubs and restaurants and is an excellent base for visiting East Yorks. The cottage is right opposite the Steam train which we took from Pickering to Whitby and is a great day out, interesting watching the trains come and go. Cottage itself is well equipped and cosy, was perfect for our base whilst exploring. Owners really helpful, nothing too much trouble.

Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

A splendid location and ideal for us with two young children to explore the N York Moors National Park. The house is great and as described and the owners were very helpful ensuring our stay went without a hitch. The only negative is the parking as the parking space in front of the house is not suitable for large family cars or estate cars and is located on a narrow road although the neighbours were accommodating. No hesitation in recommending the cottage.

A really lovely cottage - great location

  • 5 of 5

We were recommended by friends who have stated at the cottage previously to try to book into Daisy Cottage - and we were not disappointed!!

The cottage is all you would expect from a period property in Yorkshire, but with the added bonus that the cottage is kept in immaculate condition and looks like it has only recently been done up.

Location was brilliant for access to the town centre on foot, and to local pubs and attractions.

The owners were very helpful and could not do enough for us before the stay to make sure we had everything we needed.

All in all a great experience we would recommend to anyone,

From the Owner

The cottage is so well placed, 5 minutes walk from the main street in Pickering, but yet tucked away down a nice quiet lane - and best of all you can watch the steam trains leaving from the front windows!
