Eastgate Cottages

Reviewed 31 December 2009

farndale cottage, we have used for the last 3 years and it hasn`t lost its charm. very well maintained to a high standard with the added benefit of a real log fire. The whole set up has been developed to give you all you need to relax and tour the area plus the benefit of local knowledge if required.
this cottages is for two adults but others are available. For the younger quest (adults as well} the steam railway is a must.

we stayed at Bransdale, our 2 spaniels loved it just as much as us, totally gorgeous cottage, private garden, open fire. Owners were super friendly, ideal location in the centre of Pickering, ideal for Dalby Forest. Our cottage had a decorated christmas tree, and we had mulled wine waiting for us -- simply a perfect relaxing break !! Can't find a single fault !!!

We have stayed twice at Eastgate cottages in the last 3 years and it is difficult to find such high quality, service and attention to detail anywhere else within the same price range. Lovely location for exploring North Yorkshire. We would highly recommend these cottages.

We stayed in the Farmhouse cottage within the Eastgate cottages in Pickering in July 09. We had a really great holiday and were very impressed with the cottage. The cottage itself was really beautiful conversion (exposed beams etc) and the rooms were very big. But the biggest plus for the cottage was the extraordinary generosity of the fittings / equipment / furnishings etc. Everything we wanted was provided for, from superb cooking equipment, to games and DVDs for the kids (which we did not use in the end), to a large high res TV with recording facility and WiFi.
We also did a lot of cooking at the cottage and found the kitchen really easy to use too.
The cottage is centrally located within Pickering so we could walk to the shops, restaurants if we had wanted to.

We have now stayed in 4 different Eastgate Cottages, 2 on more than one occasion, and have found each one to be just as superb as the rest. The staff are extremely helpful and do their utmost to ensure that you enjoy your stay in their accommodation, nothing is too much trouble. The cleanliness of the cottages is of very high standards as is the decoration. We have stayed during both summer season and at Christmas and found the area and accommodation to be ideal for both.
I highly recommend Eastgate Cottages - we couldn't fault them.

We have been visiting Pickering for many years and once we found Eastgate Cottages in 2003 we knew we'd never need to search for any other accommodation; it cannot be beaten on quality, attention to detail, comfort, cleanliness and a warm welcome from all the staff. Each cottage has its own special features, open log fires, beamed ceilings, luxurious bathrooms and beautiful furnishings. There are absolutely no hidden extras to the price; bed linen and towels are provided, coal and logs for the fire, central heating, a free library of dvd's, pets welcome pack with dog blankets and dog towels, basics such as dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, washing powder, condiments, cling film, foil and all the little things that cost a small fortune when on a self catering holiday are already there. There are lovely touches such as fresh flowers, slices of home made yorkshire tea loaf with wensleydale to welcome you on arrival and a starter pack so that you can have that much needed cup of tea or coffee as soon as you arrive. Elaine and Kevin have thought of everything and are constantly updating the cottages. The single storey cottages are ideal for anyone with a mobility problem, so Eastgate Cottages are accessible to everyone. Eastgate Cottages are also safe and welcoming for children with a small childrens play area in the garden. We have recommended the cottages to all our friends and relatives, many of whom are now regular visitors to Eastgate.

These are not just self-catering cottages, these are truly exceptional home from home properties,where a great deal of thought and attention to detail, has created interiors of quality furniture, luxurious bathrooms, including some nice surprises and the most comfortable beds imaginable, we should know we have stayed in nearly all the cottages and after over 35 years of self-catering far and wide ,without hestation can recommend them with confidence. Imagine a courtyard setting where a number of stone built cottages nestle sympathetically within the market town of Pickering, which boasts the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. At Levisham the owners offer 2 delightful cottages, set within the grounds of their own home and a stones throw from Levisham Station and breathtaking scenery. Also dotted around the Moors are several more cottages. A long weekend at Eastgate is not long enough. Kay and David
