For over 30 years, English Country Cottages has featured Hungate Cottages in its brochure.

"Two time winners of prestigious Pickering in Bloom 2013 and 2016 - relax in the beauty and tranquillity of Hungate’s award-winning gardens . . ."

A short stroll from the heart of this charming old country town, Hungate Cottages are tucked away with a delightful ‘secret garden’ atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. A wonderful holiday location, with the vast and magnificent North York Moors on the doorstep, there is easy access to the beautiful east coast, the city of York and a whole host of fascinating places to visit. Outstanding comfort and style of these cottages, combined with a superb location, makes this an ideal all-year holiday destination.
Pickering is a delight - old fashioned friendliness and an unhurried pace of life combine with charming old inns, 12th-century castle, museums, and remarkable medieval frescoes in the local church, and the North Yorkshire Moors Railway takes visitors on a nostalgic journey through spectacular heather-clad moorland scenery to Grosmont. City of York 26 miles. Castle Howard, setting for TV’s Brideshead Revisited, Nunnington Hall (NT), Duncombe Park, and Rievaulx Abbey, are just a few treasures to discover. York offers the majestic minster, the fascinating Jorvik Viking Centre, the Castle Museum, the National Railway Museum, and excellent shopping facilities. On the east coast lie Scarborough and Bridlington, the picturesque fishing villages of Robin Hood’s Bay, and Staithes, and the fascinating old port of Whitby, with its Captain Cook connections, as well as 3 miles of sandy beaches and a colourful harbour, while the popular resort of Scarborough is 17 miles away offering excellent shopping and family entertainment. Closer to home visitors can enjoy free use of Pickering’s swimming-pool, just 3 minutes’ walk away, good cycling in Dalby Forest (bikes can be hired in Pickering), as well as forest walks, fishing, pony trekking and golf. Local cricket pitch 50 yards. Shops 200 yards, pub 175 yards.
The cottages have been converted with great flair by the owners, Mike and Sue Kitching, from the outbuildings of Hungate House. The delightful setting includes eight secluded gardens, courtyards and an orchard, as well as an enclosed play area with basket swing and wendy house for children. The gardens are beautiful and peaceful, and have been well kept, to ensure a relaxing environment. They are a real haven in a lovely Yorkshire town. Each cottage retains much character, with old stone arches, fireplaces and beams carefully retained. Immaculately maintained, warm, clean and superbly well-equipped with free high speed Wi-fi, these cottages are truly a ‘home from home’. No wonder so many visitors return time and again. The owners provide plenty of helpful information on the huge choice of places to visit, as well as menus from the local restaurants.
Visitors have unlimited free use of Pickering’s swimming pool, 1 free multi-entry car pass to Dalby Forest (two passes with Hungate Garden Cottage - ICH). Enjoy 1 free return journey on the North York Moors Railway! Walk to Pickering Station and board an iconic steam train for a breath taking journey across the stunning North Yorkshire Moors - 1 adult return journey per cottage will be reimbursed on presentation of a receipt, for stays of 1 week or more, excludes special events and Pullman Dining Trains, see NYMR website for schedules. Also an exciting children’s adventure playground, and free entry to Ryedale Folk Museum, only applicable for stays of 7 nights or more.

    Booked because it was dog friendly. It was okay. But certainly not luxurious There are no dressing /vanity tables in any bedroom so nowhere to put anything. We had a winter break and found the open coal fire an old fashioned Dirty and messy thing to deal with in todays modern world. Lovely once lit but not so nice when not. The cottage needs to invest in a more mordern wood stove. The front door opens directly onto a busy road and into the living area. There is a small area to park for one car at the rear of the cottage. Bedrooms are a good size but the small living space downstairs would be very cramped if fully occupied by 6 persons.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are sorry to hear that the cottage did not meet with your expectations; however we would like to take the opportunity to respond to your concerns. We do not advertise that the cottage is luxurious, just 4* cosy and inviting. Each bedroom has a chest of drawers which is waist height or slightly higher with space on top where guests can place personal items. Most of our guests find the open fire to be a welcome addition to the cottages. We provide free logs, not coal which can be messy and 3 of our cottages do have wood burning stoves. The cottage is not located on a busy road, but on a dead-end road leading to a retirement complex. There is also a gravelled garden area and a footpath in front and its own parking space and garage at the rear. You have mentioned how you felt the living space would feel very cramped when fully occupied. We have never to date had a complaint about the size, with Levisham mostly being booked by 4 adults and 2 children. The open plan living space has enough seating and dining space for 6 people.

    My family and I had a lovely holiday. We stayed in the Levisham Cottage, great view across the cricket ground. Pickering is such a great base from which to explore Yorkshire and we would certainly book Hungate Cottages again.
