We stayed here for a weekend break. There was only one door, the front door, no back door. The kitchen only had a very high window which meant it could not really be opened to let smells out if you were cooking. The shower was in a very large bathroom with a wooden floor which became dangerously slippery if you had wet feet from taking a shower. The big bathroom did not seem to have a central heating radiator and was cold. The other bathroom was heated but I noticed small red incect type creatures crawling around the skirting boards! I do not know whether previous occupants dogs had been in there! I could also hear the next door occupants, particularily their children in the evening/night which did not make for a quiet sleep. Despite previously being told we could smoke on arrival we were told no smoking. The downstairs toilet was in a very bad position which meant one had to use it sideways on.
Yes the properties are in a central position but in my opinion are very expensive. Moreover although there is a very expensive supermarket in Pickering if you want a Tesco or Sainsbury it is either long trips to York or Scarborough.
