Cottage in Pickering, North Yorkshire Moors, England - Cosy 4-Star Cottage Ideally Situated In The Pretty Market Town Of Pickering, Close To York And Coast
About Ann Mathe
We fell in love with Pickering on our first visit and have returned so often that we felt like we were already living here. After spending many a weekend or longer when we could manage it, we finally decided to relocate and now live about 15 minutes from Pickering. We still love visiting Lavender but now that we are not booking it ourselves, we would like to encourage more people to visit this lovely part of the country. We have tried to provide a real home from home in the cottage and we have received lovely reviews from all of our guests. They have also provided a book of comments, recommending places to visit or sharing the highlight of their trips - please do come and stay and add your experiences - Yorkshire is definitely for sharing!
Ann Mathe purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Ann Mathe chose Pickering
We first came to Pickering a few years ago and stayed at the White Swan after a hectic Christmas and New year. We sat at the table in the window with the fire blazing and the coffee steaming, watching the snow settle outside and we were hooked! We have been coming back to this area year on year and we fell in love with Lavender cottage the minute we walked in and we hope that you will too.We love to wander round the Castle or the many Antique shops and a visit to the Flea Market is a must! Soak up the atmosphere over tea and cake in one of the many tea shops and just watch the world go by. If it's a special occasion, why not book dinner or afternoon tea on the Steam Train to Whitby or dine in the White Swan.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage has many original features (stone walls, beamed ceilings) and has been renovated to a high standard. We love spending time in the cottage and after a hectic week at work, there is nothing more welcoming than a bottle of wine in front of the cosy fire during the colder months or sat under the gazebo in the summer. You can escape the madness for a few days and enjoy the warm and friendly welcome that Pickering offers. The cottage is perfectly situated for restaurants and pubs. The deli provides freshly cooked meals which can be re-heated and enjoyed in the comforts of the cottage and the black pudding sausage rolls and scotch eggs must be tried !

Cosy cottage in Pickering
A lovely home from home in good location. Very comfortable and cosy. Low doorways need to be remembered by taller visitors! Downstairs bathroom might not suit everyone but wasn’t a problem for us. Everything you would need is provided and comprehensive information folders tell you everything you need to know . Lavender cottage is a credit to the owners who have clearly put a lot of love and thought into their lovely home.

Fab place to stay
The cottage is lovely. Clean, warm and works really well for our war weekend. Everything we need, from cooking to ironing. Really central to Pickering and any bus stop to go further afield. Its our favourite.
Walking distance of steam locomotives - perfect!
The cottage is well placed and comfortable. Parking on the road might seem a menace but it all worked really well - with care just needed when unpacking/packing up and frequent crossing required. To be within walking distance of the attractive town, the steam railway, walks around the castle etc never mind the CoOp, was a real positive. The town is charming and to be so near to facilities made for a very relaxing time. Malton is only a few miles away, with trains to York and on to Durham, and Goathland and the North York Moors are easily reached by car too. So, a charming cottage in a good spot. Low ceilings just need to be remembered. The lighting, flooring, bedding are all positives. The garden is nicely enclosed and dog friendly. A warm and welcoming property.
30 minutes drive to Scarborough. Filey, Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay are a little further but well worth the visit.
30 minute drive from York and many visitor attractions.
The Railway Station at Pickering is the base for the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway and travels to Whitby, Goathland, Grosmont.
The Great Dalby Forest is only 5 miles away and Flamingo Land only 4 miles away.
York is around 30 minutes away and the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Village is on your way!
You are within easy reach of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and there are lots of small market towns or coastal villages.
You will find a local supermarket, pubs, restaurants and many interesting shops in Pickering and make sure you visit the Market if you're here on a Monday.
