With a fantastic location in the centre of popular Pickering, this property is surrounded by grand Georgian architecture, cosy traditional cottages, excellent restaurants, pubs and cafes. From Pickering, the iconic North York Moors Railway travels through scenic countryside to the coastal town of Whitby, a journey not to be missed while in North Yorkshire. Beyond the village lie gentle rolling hills of heather, ancient woodland and meandering rivers just waiting to be discovered by walkers or cyclists. This magnificent countryside is dotted with historic market towns including picturesque Helmsley (13 miles). Set across three floors, downstairs you will find a spacious and inviting lounge, complete with exposed ceiling beams and sash windows. With plenty of comfortable sofas for everyone to relax, this room is also fitted with a TV, DVD, MP3 docking station, Nintendo Wii, PS3 and PC. A charming country kitchen is kitted out with everything you should need and is open plan with a charming dining area, where a wood burner sits within a rustic brick inglenook fireplace for atmospheric mealtimes. On the first floor are three individually decorated double bedrooms and a lovely bathroom complete with roll top bath for soothing those aching muscles. On the second floor, there are two further bedrooms, a twin and a double with an additional single bed, together with a shower room and separate WC. Outside, a charming patio area sits to the rear of the cottage, perfect for enjoying an al fresco BBQ on a warm summer's evening. There is off road parking.
