Mr Terry B,


Area Information

The bustling market town of Pickering is a great place to enjoy a self-catering break. Our cottages in Pickering offer easy access to the town centre while the Vale of Pickering offers a peaceful location to relax. On Mondays you''ll find the popular Pickering Market in the town and there are a variety of independent shops to potter around, with cafes and tea rooms to drop by and indulge in after a day of exploring. You'll be spoilt for choice for things to do in the area, from the North Yorkshire Moors Railway taking you from Pickering to the coastal town of Whitby through breathtaking moorland, Pickering Castle and the Beck Isle Museum of Rural Life. Each October you'll catch the annual Pickering War Weekend, where the town is transported back to the 1940s with fantastic costumes, stalls and period vehicles everywhere to be seen.
