    Our 2nd stay at this lovely house. There were 10 of us and there was plenty of space and equipment .Would recommend to all our friends for a fabulous weekend .The location is ideal once you have parked your car you can walk into Pickering in a few minutes. The house has a lovely feeling like it's embracing you we all felt at home.It is also an ideal location for exploring the local area .

    A fabulous house for a gathering of friends. Fantastic central location within driving distance of the coast and York, but also plenty to do in and around Pickering. Only one small hiccup - the AGA - there's an art to cooking using an Aga, one that we weren't prepared for. It was a challenge that we finally got the hang of but some more instructions would have been helpful. This didn't spoil our stay at all though. There are plenty of cooking vessels, utensils and serving dishes should they be required. The conservatory is a lovely room and we spent a lot of time in there. The bedrooms are all equally lovely and well served by warm and spacious bathrooms. The main lounge is a great space for fun and games while there is a second sitting room for quieter moments or for children to enjoy. Parking is a lucky draw, but we always managed to get a space "near" the house. We would definitely recommend this property.
