Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have stayed in a few of the cottages over the years and would have no hesitation in recommending Eastgate cottages. They are spotless, comfy and have everything you need. Some even have a small private garden which is ideal for your pet(s). A good range of cottages suitable for couples or families. And there is also parking available so no stress trying to find a parking space when returning after a day out. Facilities like convenience stores, takeaways, pubs etc all located within a very short walking distance of the cottages.

The cottages at Eastgate are all really comfortable and clean. We keep going back and have stayed in quite a few different cottages. The beds are so comfortable we do not want to get up in the morning! The kitchens are well set up for cooking, everything you need. Every cottage is very clean and cosy. We like the ones with wood burners, logs supplied. Helen and John are always there if there is a problem. Elaine and Kevin the owners are also near by. We thoroughly recommend these cottages and cannot wait until we return next year. Try it but not when we want to go! Thank you.

We have been returning to Eastgate Cottages, with family and without, for many years now and have stayed in most of the cottages - all of which have their own character. To sum up our stays “you will not be disappointed” with the cottages or the surrounding area. 😃 Thank you again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Eastgate Cottages. The cottages are extremely well maintained, equipped, warm, comfortable and a real home from home. The whole set up is superbly run. Those working there are fantastic people. The ethos is one of nothing's too much trouble. Help and advice is there when it's needed but not 'in your face'. Pickering is also an excellent base from which to explore its surroundings. We will be back!

I anticipated beforehand that our stay would be a good one, but agree with so many others that Eastgate Cottages excels when it comes to ease of booking, advance information (the video tour of the cottage was so helpful), quality of the furnishings, ease of use of equipment and the very generous rooms which are so cleverly designed. From start to finish everything was so easy and enjoyable that we really didn't want to leave. Superb...think we're about to join the ranks of the repeat bookers!

Our fourth visit to Eastgate Cottages. Lovely cottages in a very convenient location. Furnished to a high standard and very clean, with really comfortable beds (so much so that we bought the same one for home). I’m sure we will be back before long!

This was our first visit to Eastgate Cottages and we can understand why there are so many repeat bookings and 5* reviews. The location is very convenient for local amenities in Pickering yet within a peaceful, attractive setting. We stayed in Thorgill which is excellently appointed, immaculately clean and a pleasure to stay in. Owner Elaine was very friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning in the future.

This place restores my faith in British accommodation!!! Clean, tidy, warm, everything you could want in a stay! Lovely staff, no wonder most people are repeat bookings!!! A little road noise in the front cottages, but wasn't a problem to us (our friends bought earplugs and had a good night's sleep!
