Find cottages in PickeringVisit Pickering

Pickering is the gateway to the North York Moors and well placed for exploring the rolling moors and enjoying days out at the Yorkshire coast.

It's also the southern terminus of the famous North Yorkshire Steam Railway, where you can travel in style through beautiful moors countryside, stopping at picturesque villages on the way, right to Whitby and the Yorkshire coast.

This characterful town has a fine selection of independent shops, fine art galleries and antique shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Local history can be found at the 12th century castle and Parish Church where 15th century wall paintings can be viewed or pop along to the Beck Isle Museum, which offers a fascinating insight into the area's past.

Take a short trip out of the town to the spectacular Hole of Horcum, a massive natural depression where paragliders and hang-gliders can be seen riding the air currents. Nearby too is the Dalby Forest, a popular destination for lovely walks, a drive or perhaps a picnic. Families will enjoy the Go Ape attraction in the forest and Flamingo Land theme park and Zoo a short distance away.

Pickering provides an excellent base for your cottage holiday in this beautiful part of Yorkshire; to see accommodation see our selection of Pickering Holiday Cottages.

"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."
