About the home
Pickering is a historic market town ideally located in the heart of North Yorkshire. Home to the North Yorkshire Steam Railway, Castle and Dalby Forest, the town has an interest for all. Access to the countryside and the East Coast. The cottage originates from the 17th century and has kept with the character, with low beams, thick stone walls and Yorkshire sash windows. The property has a large garden, patio/BBQ area and conservatory. A large entrance hall gives way to the living room, carpeted with fire place. A TV with freeview and DVD is provided for use with a comprehensive selection of movies for all ages. A downstairs toilet runs off the entrance hall. The country style kitchen is fitted with a Range cooker and has all expected provisions to meet the needs of any self-catering holidaymaker. For the kids we have a packed cupboard in the downstairs hall full of toys and games.
There are 3 bedrooms and a large bathroom. The first two bedrooms are the larger with bedroom 3 a small single room. Together they will sleep a total of 7 people with the provision of 2 double beds, 1 single bed, then a 2 seater sofa bed in the lounge. Additionally we have a good supply of airbeds which can be used in both double rooms, just ask for details if your party is larger than 7. Provisions for babies can be made by request, there is a junior bed for under 5's in bedroom 2 and a travel cot which will fit nicely in the main bedroom or bedroom 2. Pets are welcome with no charge, but please respect future use. The cottage is being further equipped all the time, therefore the advert here is the minimum you can expect for your stay.
