“All you could desire”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

Just stayed three nights at this luxury sparkling accommodation very close to centre of Pickering with the most hospitable owners plus a delightful Dudley the dog. Our room was extremely comfortable with plenty of space & many thoughtful extras provided including a duck & frog for the bath! Bed was so comfortable that we slept very soundly. Delicious breakfast with everything you could desire on offer together with extremely pleasant service. We do hope to return ASAP. Barbara & Dave.

Room Tip: We were in Room 16 which was very quiet & peaceful.

Good to receive your review and very pleased you enjoyed your stay. Always nice when people comment on details and specifics-we have shown Dudley his mention!!! As an aside we won the raffle for the Gillies Jones Glass Bowl at the Jazz Festival-didn't we do well. Hope to see you again in the not too distant future

Only stayed for one night unfortunately because could have made ourselves quite at home. Owners very helpful without being obstrusive as per past experiences in other b&bs. Lovely breakfast all locally sourced and care taken to describe where everything came from on breakfast menu. Room was lovely, private and quiet with spacious Bathroom much nicer than ours at home. Would love to have stayed longer and will definitely return.

We stayed 4 days in 17 burgate it is one off the best B&B we had in the last 5 years,
Will and his wife gave us a very warm welcom, and we feld at home on the first minut.
Everything is perfect, we stayed in room 11, clean, quiet and a good bed , a perfect breakfast in the morning.
In Pickering and Yorkshire is more then enough to do.
It is value for your money.

Just wanted a relaxing break away from work pressures, stayed two nights (Fri/Sat 20-21 July), rode the steam train to Whitby on the Saturday. !7 Burgate is a superb town house very close to Pickering market place, very clean and tidy, we stayed in room 14 which was outstanding, plenty of choice for breakfast, hosts were very friendly and welcoming, tea and home made cake on arrival, will definatley be returning and can highly recommend it to anyone.

My husband and i have recently returned from unfortunately a very brief stay at 17 Burgate. My husband booked one nights stay to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. We were greeted by Will and a very warm, friendly welcome. We stayed in room 12 which was outstanding..... It was light, spacious, spotlessly clean and had a fabulous king size bed.
17 Burgate is ideally located to explore Pickering and is in walking distance of prettty much everything (I'm 7 months pregnant so this was great). After having a stroll round we returned to 17 Burgate to enjoy tea and cake in the beautiful garden.
Breakfast was delicious and i only wished i had asked for 2 fried eggs, as they were perfect!

Overall we had a fantastic stay and wished we had booked to stay for longer..... So we'll see you again in 10 years or hopefully before if we can persuade the grandparents to care for the little one! :-)

So glad you enjoyed your brief visit and thanks for your generous comments. We do a lot of "babymoons"-that last spoil yourselves treat before the baby. Hope all goes well for next couple of months-see you soon ( sure your sister will want to give you a break on your own!!)

60 minutes before we were due to be attending an event in Dalby Forest our campsite was rained out and we were stuck door knocking in Pickering for accommodation. We had already spent days trawling the web for hotels and B&B's with no luck as it was an incredibly busy weekend for the area and we didn't hold much hope of finding accommodation at all. We saw a sign for 17 Burgate on the side of the road and made a quick call to them, found they had had a cancellation and therefore a vacancy and headed there with no idea what to expect. From the moment we pulled in to the car park and entered the garden we knew we were on to a winner! The garden was stunning and perfectly in keeping with the character of the building. The owners were incredibly friendly and welcoming and we were just bowled over by the high standard of the accommodation, beautiful bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms which would give any 5* hotel a run for their money. 17 Burgate was spotless from top to bottom and there are the most thoughtful little personal touches everywhere, the owners really have done everything they can to give their guests a comfortable and relaxing stay. Unfortunately we were so late arriving we didn't have opportunity to spend much time there, this has however, guaranteed we will be back in the future. Breakfast was a leisurely and relaxed affair in a tastefully decorated and comfortable dining room with plenty of smiles and personal touches. The only thing I will say about the food is that you must go and stay there and try it for yourself.

In summary, a B&B that is very obviously run with a great deal of care and consideration for guests comfort and clear commitment to providing the highest possible standards in every way.

Thank you for your hospitality, we will see you again I'm sure.

I booked this as a birthday suprise for my partner. All pre contact was done by email. I was offered, and took them up on, the offer of flowers, champagne waiting in the room. I found it a very efficient and reassuring service giving me nothing to worry about before our arrival. On the day we were greeted by Will and Pat and made very welcome. Our room was very nice with a simply amazing super king size bed with lots of nice touches such as jelly beans in a bowl.
On returning from a meal out we were told to just help ourselves at the bar and write down what we had. I found this trust very touching. As it was we were joined by Mein Hosts and their pet dog and cat and enjoyed their company greatly. A very charming couple.
Breakfast on the Saturday was great, with good quality ingredients. We shall definitely be back and commend it to anyone

Room Tip: There are only five rooms and all of a high standard
