“This was our 3rd visit to Keep Cottage, it’s a fantastic property with excellent facilities.”
It is in the perfect location to enjoy Pickering and the surrounding areas. (Thornton-le-dale being one of our favourites!) Pickering castle is right on the doorstep and the North Yorkshire Moors Steam train station running to Whitby is just 5 minutes walk!
We visited the Beck Isle museum for the first time this year and it was great, much bigger than it looked from the outside, this was enjoyed by both the children and adults - definitely worth a visit, also you can return for free anytime within 12 months of your visit if you keep your receipt! Helmsley castle, Rievaulx Abbey and Kirkham Priory (all English heritage properties) are all relatively close by and worth taking the time to visit if you can!
We enjoyed breakfast in ‘Feast’ good quality food, friendly service. The White Swan next door is lovely for an evening meal, but make sure you book early! We can also recommend Capplemans fish and chip shop, which also has a dine in option!
Gary and Rachel were extremely helpful, keeping in touch throughout the stay and prior to arrival making sure everything was just right for us. The cottage was super clean as always and the enclosed garden as beautiful as ever! We enjoyed having the log fire burning on some of the colder/wetter evenings, making the cottage even cosier!
Our group consisted of 4 adults, 2 children and 1 dog and Keep Cottage met all of our needs perfectly.
