This charming town, known as the 'Gateway to the Moors' is nestled in between four major Yorkshire towns of Scarborough, Whitby, Helmsley and Malton. Ideally placed for a short break or a longer stay exploring this picturesque area, either by foot or bike. Packed with farm shops pick up some locally sourced produce and head back to your home away from home to enjoy some quality time with your loved ones. If you fancy someone else doing the cooking, there are plenty of cosy tearooms and pubs where you can sit back and relax. On the edge of the North York Moors, this enchanting region comprises 1400 miles of heather moorland, pine forests, rolling hills and a stunning coastline. Along the trails and routes, look out for historic abbeys, castles and priories, traditional villages and hamlets. Breathe out, kick back and enjoy creating memories in one of our Pickering cottages.
