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 CHARACTER OF HUNGATE
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). There is also free entry to Ryedale Folk Museum for all guests.

Rosedale (KAP) may be interconnected with Farndale (KAN) and booked together to provide accommodation for up to 11 guests.

Hungate is best summed up by a visitor who wrote, "There was nothing more we could have wished for in a holiday home. We loved the fire, the free logs and little touches such as fresh flowers – it felt like home. The children loved the freedom of the gardens and could not wait to get home from our excursions! We loved coming and going through the heavy black gate into an oasis in this nice town."

Sitting room with open stone fireplace. Corner dining area with chapel-bench seating. Modern fitted kitchen with granite worktop.

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review. We are currently looking into adding additional radiators to the main bathroom as it is a very large room. The living room and kitchen both have large radiators in them and the thermostat for the house is in the living room and may have just needed altering if you weren’t as warm as you would have liked.

    Although we had terrible weather it did not affect our holiday as there was so much do in he area. We loved our stay in Ellerbeck and will definitely be back. It is so peaceful in and around the gardens, and the birds singing was magical. Difficult to believe there is a busy road through the front gate as you can't hear the traffic at all in the cottage or gardens. It was an easy walk to al the facilities in Pickering.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your wonderful review. Even though the weather wasn't great it sounds like you found lots of things to do. We are very lucky to be in such a wonderful part of England and especially lucky to be so close to all the amenities of Pickering and yet it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere in our beautiful gardens. We hope to see you again in the future.
