Summer 2018

Thinking of where to spend your summer holidays? We think Pickering is the perfect base to explore North Yorkshire. Just a 30 minute drive to Scarborough and a little more to Whitby. Dalby Forest is just a 10 minute drive up the road where the children can let off some steam at Go Ape or go mountain biking around the forest. The new Alpamare swimming pool in Scarborough is in a fantastic location over-looking the North Sea and has 4 exciting slides and an indoor wave pool as well as 2 outdoor pools. Keep checking our website and Facebook page for more ideas and events in Pickering this year.

We always know Summer is on the way when Pickering Cricket Club start playing on a Saturday afternoon. Three of our cottages have the advantage of looking directly on to the cricket pitch and Bransdale is our latest cottage to receive a make-over. We have freshened the paint work up in the living room, kitchen, stairs and landing as well as the bathroom and entrance hall so why not book a Spring/ Summer break with us and enjoy the cricket whilst you are here?
