“Fantastic weekend break”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Our family of 16 have just thoroughly enjoyed a long weekend in the, Ellerbeck and the Hungate Garden Cotttage and we can say it was not a disappointment. The cottages were extremely well kitted out and were immaculate on arrival. The endless supply of wood kept us all warm and very cosy. Some of the family took an easy 20 minute drive to Whitby for the day while others enjoyed a stroll around Pickering village were a delicious meal was enjoyed at the White Swan pub, which comes highly recommended. This was our first visit but most certainly wont be our last.

Our family of 4 stayed for 2 weeks in the Levisham Cottage over Christmas 2013. Barbara & Jerry are wonderful hosts and made us very welcome. The cottage was well appointed with everything we needed. Easy access to town with all amenities. Will definitely be coming back again one day in the future. Christmas Carols and mulled wine were wonderful treats too :)

Thanks for your wonderful review. Glad you enjoyed your time with us, especially our annual Carols@Hungate event. It makes the effort worthwhile to see our guests singing carols around the Christmas Tree accompanied by the wonderful band. And of course the mulled wine and mince pies! Hope to see you again next time you're over here.

This is our 4th visit to Hungate and our second in Ellerbeck. Yet again we have been delighted with the cottage, it's facilities and the welcome we always get from Jerry and Barbara.

This was the first time here for my Mother in law, who has also fallen in love with the place.

Love the endless supply of logs, the gas poker that makes the lighting of the logs a doddle and the equipment levels generally.

As ever the place is immaculately clean and everything works. When a bulb went it was changed in minutes.

Rebooked for later in the year since we do have to go home in a day or two.................

We "discovered" Yorkshire about 10 years ago and the family have been coming to Hungate Cottages ever since. The cottages are quiet, peaceful, comfortable and very well equipped. Barbara and Jerry (the hosts) are extremely kind and welcoming.
The centre of Pickering is convenient ( five mins. walk) with more than enough shops, cafes and eateries to suit all ages. The N.Y.M.R. is based here too. If you want the coast, it is 30mins. by car and walking in the area is fantastic. Visiting York is easy. Use the park & ride. We have booked two more visits to Hungate Cottages for 2014 already and can't wait to get back. All in all, a superb place to stay in a great location.

Lovely, well specified cottages, all within a few yards walk of Pickering town, its interesting shops, the NY steam railway, an amazing Indian restaurant, free access to the municipal swimming pool, and more pubs and cafes than there are days in the week. Short drive to many other places.

Good for families or couples

The host is extremely welcoming, and helped with any request. We had unlimited free wood for the burner.

The cottages were also reasonably priced, and didn't inflate massively for half-terms unlike other holidays like Center Parcs etc.

Highly recommend

My sisters and I have booked Hungate Cottages for the past nine years for the WW11 weekend. We have stayed in several of the cottages over this period and never found anything wrong with them, they are just fantastic. Everything you could possibly need is contained in them, we just adore the log fire, my two brothers in law fight to see who gets to light and take care of it (sad). The welcome from Jerry and Barbara is second to none. It is like a second home now, the cottages are super clean, tea and coffee tray is laid out and a vase of fresh flowers awaits your arrival. Being placed in the heart of North Yorkshire is wonderful, you can visit so many beautiful towns and villages, great pubs and restaurants too numerous to mention, although if you want decadence try the Black Swan at Helmsley for afternoon tea (you need to book) and is not cheap. Yorkshire has just come 3rd in the world for areas to visit - says it all. You can get free passes to the local swimming pool, and to visit Eden Camp.

Room Tip: Every Cottage is delightful the only difference is how many bedrooms you require.

Our second trip to Hungate Cottages.

A different cottage this time(Danbydale) but as before everything was pretty much perfect. One thought I did have was that for tall people like me the over bath shower was not ideal, as I kept banging my head on the exposed roof beam which runs immediately above! However, I just used the other shower, so no problem!

We are returning again next year,as we think that the standard of the cottages, their location and the warm welcome, make Hungate pretty much unbeatable, if you want to stay in this part of the country.
