Property Description

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

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

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 a safe, enclosed play area for children. Each cottage retains much character, with old stone arches, fireplaces and beams carefully retained. Immaculately maintained, warm, clean and superbly well-equipped, 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), free entry to Eden Camp, an exciting children’s adventure playground, and free entry to Ryedale Folk Musem. Free entry for Eden Camp and Ryedale Folk Museum are only applicable for stays of 7 nights or more.
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."

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Hungate Garden Cottage was everything we hoped from the booking details that it would be, and more. The accommodation was perfect for our needs, the garden beautiful, the situation in close proximity to Pickering ideal and the surrounding coast and countryside lovely. July 2012.
  2. A lovely cottage, really friendly and helpful owners, the kitchen with all its utensils and equipment was the best we’d seen - we were short of nothing. The owners also provided tea and milk on arrival, a nice touch. Beautiful gardens and great location for so many different attractions all of which can be found in the cottage info file. July 2012.
  3. Cottage was in the centre of Pickering, therefore, just a short walk to the shops and staggering distance to a couple of pubs, whilst remaining quiet and peaceful enough not to disturb the lttle ones. Lots of attractions just a short drive away to keep everyone happy. March 2011.
  4. This was the best cottage we have ever rented. Everything was lovely and a brilliant location. Also disabled facilities were great. Jan 2011.
  5. THe property is well managed by an efficient team who cared about the place. The property is ideally located for the town but is secluded. Aug 2010.
  6. It was excellent as you could not wish for anything else, as it had everything. June 2010.
  7. The cottage was within easy reach of shops, pubs, restaurants but still quiet and peaceful. The cottage itself was just as the brochure said with ample room for our party, in particular the disabled accommodation was excellent and the kitchen was a dream. March 2010.
  8. Spacious, well equipped, good location. Oct 2009.
  9. Hungate Cottage is the best property that we have visited so far through your company. The house and garden were beautiful and were immaculately kept with all the equipment that we could have hoped for. Usually there is a bedroom that nobody really wants to end up in but not this time as all the bedrooms were fantastic. The complex was run very efficiently and was a total pleasure to stay in. July 2009.
  10. Homely, ideal for family get together, very central for coast or country. Jan 2009.
  11. Cottage was 100% more than we expected, all rooms were perfect, kitchen more than well stocked with all untensils and garden was beautiful. Perfect disabled facilites for our parents and everyone in party thoroughly enjoyed staying there. May 2009.
  12. The cottage’s garden was lovely and the play area was great. Oct 2008.
  13. The cottage exceeded our expectations in every aspect, our break was in February and the cottage was warm and cosy with plenty of logs to burn in the evenings if required. Every appliance needed in the kitchen was supplied with plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses. Every room was spotless and spacious.The location was excellent for accessing Pickerings town centre and visiting nearby towns.The caretaker was there to greet us on arrival and was on hand throughout our stay should we have had any problems. We certainly intend to revisit (very soon I hope). Feb 2008.
  14. This cottage was absolutely superb - both house and gardens are obviously very well looked after. Local managers very helpful and arranged for a hired wheelchair to be waiting for us in the house on our arrival. June 2006.
