“Ideal for International Travellors who want wonderful Yorkshire hospitality and home comforts”
Reviewed 7 October 2011

We stayed at Hungate Cottages (Farndale) whilst visiting from Perth Australia and where delighted how well equipped the cottage were, everything had been catered for. Excellent base for travelling around Yorkshire whilst the cottages, being a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Pickering, make it ideal for local shopping etc. We visited Goathland, Ryedale Folk Museum. Hutton le Hole, Castle Howard,Eden Camp, York, Scarborough, Beverley and even ventured on the North Yorkshire Railway (Train station 5 minutes walk from the cottages). Lovely village pubs for lunch where ideal and great fish and chips at Whitby.

We have stayed at Hungate Cottages (in 6 of the cottages) and every time we have a most enjoyable stay, unfortunatly qe have not been able to make our annual visit over the last couple of years however we do intend to go back next year. The cottages are all furnished to a high quality with all your needs and as the years have gone by they are updated to include the latest technology. Its true you are in a town but once you go through the big black doors you are in a different world. Pickering is a market town and although you have not got a large supermarket there are the smaller shops so you will find all the food and items you could need. The town has many pubs, restraunts, cafes and takeaways its even got a cinema!! And of course the lovely North Yorkshire Railway - so lovely to see and hear. Just sitting typing this is making me want to be back there now. Can recommend that you give Hungate Cottages, it may be a bit more expensive but worth every penny if you appreciate quality ...

We enjoyed a lovely family holiday in Hungate Cottage in July 2011. Our ages ranged from 2-64 years and there was something close by for us all. It was wonderfully close to centre of Pickering but was so quiet in the house and garden you would never know. We visited Scarborough, York, Flamingo Land, went on the steam train and enjoyed the pleasure of the very local 'The Tea Shop' - fabulous cream tea. Dad and grandpa even caught tea at the local trout lake!
Jerry and Barbara were very helpful and keen to assist wherever possible - including sorting out the dishwasher whilst we were out when it decided to be temporarily less than efficient.
The house is comfortable and well proportioned with a lovely garden and huge round dining table for family mealtimes. Plenty of room for us all and the garden felt like an extension to the house.
Definitaly recommend for big families or group of friends.

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.

We needed to escape and found the most wonderful place to stay here in Pickering. We got the fire roaring, cooked up some yummy food and settled in for a gloriously cosy night. The rest of the weekend was filled with walks on the moors and drinks in the pub; we really couldn't ask for more. The cottage felt very homely, but with added little luxuries like the roll top bath and radios with ipod docks. Bliss!
Now we just need to find another excuse to escape there...

We were recommended Hungate cottages by some friends and we couldn't have been happier. We had a great weekend with friends and family with all the essentials more than catered for - log fire, spotlessly clean cottages, comfy beds, a warm welcome and a lovely feeling of being hidden away whilst still being a 2 min walk from Pickering. It felt really secure for the children and there was even a little play area so something to keep restless people occupied! Just can't wait to go back.

Recently visted these cottages in Pickering - recommended by a friend and although my expectations weren't that high, as I have stayed in lots of self catering cottages in the North of England, I was stunned by the quality, location and service at Hungate cottages.
The decor was a great mix of old cottage with modern fixtures and fittings and I was even impressed by the shower (usually a piddling little thing) this was hot and strong!
The location couldn't be better - though I didn't even know it until someone pointed it out it was so quiet we backed on to the high street which has a great selection of shops, pubs and things to do.
The other thing that struck me that although the cottages seem quite close together the service was friendly but not interfering and the higgledy- piggledy nature of the cottages felt like a little village on it's own.
Highly recommended!!!
