Lovely, clean and comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

My few days away were lovely. Pickering is a good base to get to the East Coast and do some good walking more locally. I was lucky to be able to visit Pickering theatre on the Saturday night which helped make my break more interesting. The cottage had everything you need for a very comfortable holiday and the free parking was a bonus.

Warm clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with cottage, comfortable bed "the double" the kitchen well equipped but I didn't like the bath, that's due to me having a small operation on my leg and wasn't able to use it, very annoying. When I come up that way again I will try and book the cottage again, for a longer stay next time.

Lovely cottage and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was bigger than expected, exceptionally clean and we'll equipped, bed extremely comfy. Ideal for families or couples. We stayed with our dog and we had a great time. You are spoilt for choice with places to eat and everywhere very dog friendly. Would stay again and definitely recommend. A great find!
