This delightful cottage has been fully modernised and equipped to high standards. It's special attraction is the rail side location and watching the steam locomotives pass slowly by is a real treat. The railway is a tourist attraction and trains only run during the day.Please note that trains do not run during some winter weeks. Footpaths and bridleways radiate out in all directions from the front door and open up to the whole of the North York Moors national park for the keen walker or cyclist. Places of interest such as Castle Howard, Whitby(we also have a cottage in Whitby E2561), Scarborough and York are a short drive away. The cottage has a well equipped kitchen, sitting/dining room, two bedrooms, bathroom and a garden with furniture and BBQ. It is cosy and warm with gas central heating and double glazing. The main bedroom has a superior king size bed and the twin room has two full size adult single beds. There is free WiFi access at the cottage and a TV digital recorder.

About David Wilson
I am a recently retired community pharmacist and my wife is a retired teacher.We love using the cottage ourselves when not occupied by guests and take a pride in presenting it to a high standard. As we live less than an hour away from the property we are able to clean and service it ourselves to ensure standards are maintained.
David Wilson purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why David Wilson chose Scarborough District
My wife and I had spent several years trying to decide where to buy a holiday cottage. By good chance I happened to be trawling through the property websites and found a cottage just outside Pickering which had recently been refurbished. One quick look at it on a snowy day in the middle of winter and we were both smitten. The area is stunningly beautiful and when the sun shines we honestly can't think of anywhere better than the North Yorkshire Moors.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is under a mile from Pickering and we always enjoy the walk through the woods or along the beck into town. Although we did not think we were railway fanatics when we bought the property we are still unable to avoid rushing to the window to watch the steam trains go by. Sir Nigel Gresley is our favourite. We have become a bit like the railway children as we can't help waving at the people on the train. Pickering is a really friendly little town where people seem to have the time to stand and chat. There's loads of good eating places in and around the town. We are still finding new pubs to try each time we go over to the cottage. We are keen walkers and mountain bikers and we have yet to exhaust all the possible routes from the cottage. What more can I say - we just love it!

Beautiful, peaceful, cared for, loving little touches, welcoming, a home from home.
It was for us a simply perfect place to stay. Steam trains passing the window, birds at the bird table, comfortable, restful, beautifully cared for. We are going home filled with gratitude. We can't wait to come back. Pickering is an easy walk away, and lovely walks all around us. Admittedly we are steam enthusiasts! The railway was the real draw, but everything else was wonderful too.
We are so glad you enjoyed your Christmas stay in our cottage and thank you for taking the time to write your review.
Lovely cottage with all we needed. Fun location.
The cottage was nicely and comfortably equipped with all we needed thank you. We had a relacing stay exploring North York Moors and loved watching the steam engines go by (especially our two boys). Good location to walk into Pickering to the station and town so nice to leave the car put every now and then. Thank you for the welcoming bubbly too.
Lovely cottage and very well equipped in a great location.
The Cottage was everything as described. Beautifully decorated everything we needed was there but with no loss of character. The Trains being so near was wonderful and we would certainly like to visit again. Thank you.
Heaven for Steam Enthusiasts
Great little Cottage in excellent location for anyone interested in watching trains on the North York Moors Railway - even from the bedroom window if it's raining.
Only one mile from Pickering station, so an easy flat walk.
Well equipped, in all departments, with the added bonus of being able to record TV on the Freesat box.
We are looking forward to booking a return visit very soon.
Thanks for your kind review and we agree that the bedroom is a great place to watch the steam trains pass by though the decked area is even better when the sun is shining.
Great property and location!
Lovely comfortable, well equipped cottage. Nice touches like hairdryer and kitchen essentials such as salt, pepper, vinegar and teabags. Lovely to have steam trains running past and see them being prepared and put to bed from the bedroom window! Easy access to York, Coast and beautiful moorland around Goathland and Hole of Horcum.Pretty garden and seating area.
We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
