Beautiful cottage for a new year break

  • 4 of 5

This is an absolutely beautiful cottage in a great location, very close to the railway with steam trains (would recommend going on one) and shops in the small town centre.

Beds are super comfy, the bath is large and luxurious and the living room was cosy with the fireplace and Christmas decorations.

Fabulous cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay over the Christmas break. The cottage is immaculate and was very well equipped for our stay. The owners had decorated it for Christmas and left some gifts for us, which was a lovely touch

and very much appreciated. Parking outside the cottage was no issue during our stay. The location of the cottage is fantastic, with Pickering town centre within in walking distance and plenty of places to visit within a short drive. We will be recommending and would definitely return.

I'm sure we will return to Rivendell. The owners have obviously done their best to make it as comfortable as possible. We had everything we needed and felt welcome.

Stayed for 3 nights in October half term. Cottage was clean and cosy, heating could be adjusted and neighbours very friendly. Basics were provided although compared to other places I have stayed kitchen cupboards were bare.

Lovely, cosy cottage. Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

An absolute treasure of a cottage. Well appointed, a super comfy bed and lovely bath and shower.

Pickering is well located for the moors and villages of North Yorkshire. There is also the added attraction of the steam train to Whitby.
