“Home from home in an interesting area”
Reviewed October 30, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stayed at Primrose cottage for 2 nights in October 2015. The cottage is well placed near to shops pubs, restaurants etc and you can leave the car and take a short walk to all of these. You cannot park directly outside the property but we managed to get a place just down the road. It's probably best to drop your bags and then go and park. We located the key easily from instructions given and found the cottage to be very cosy and immaculate with everything you would need for a short break. I took a dish cloth but tea towels are provided.
We had a small problem getting heating on and I rang the owner who rang me straight back and said the thermostat may need turning up. This sorted it immediately!
My only criticism would be that the shower pressure is not great and there is no wifi but we got that in a local pub.
We ate out on both nights at The Black Swan in town. This is a cosy pub where the food was good quality and reasonable but there are plenty of places to choose from and the cottage is right opposite a chip shop. There is a Lidl round the corner.
We ventured out to Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay and both were busy even though the weather wasn't great. We also went to Pickering railway station a short walk from the cottage and although we didn't take the train it was good to see the old steam train on the platform. We stood and watched people getting on then the driver invited us to climb up into the engine to see inside! We watched as it puffed its way out of the station! After we left the cottage we stopped in York and wandered round the sights before heading back home.
The cottage is perfect for 2 or 3 people but is probably not great for very young children due to a winding wooden staircase and a very tiny back yard. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a short break with lots of places to explore not far away. It is a cosy little cottage and feels very homely. We enjoyed our stay here.
Another positive was that we had only been home a few hours and the owner emailed me for my bank details to return my £50 deposit. It was back in my bank that evening!

Thankyou so much for your positive comments. However, I would not describe the staircase as " winding"as it only has one turn in it.

“Lovely place to stay”

Primrose Cottage is a lovely place to stay - the cottage itself is very cosy and beautifully furnished - it has lots of character and charm! The location is great, too. Pickering is a small town with a number of delightful cafes, bakeries, pubs, restaurants and shops, and the cottage is very close to all of these amenities. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding area, taking a trip on the steam train to Whitby, a day trip to York and walking in the North York Moors, and Pickering was the perfect place to come back to in the evening and then cosy up in the cottage!

Had a very enjoyable stay at Primrose Cottage with the family. Brilliant location just a few minutes from the town centre but nice and quiet. Was great for train spotting as steam railway just down road.

“Perfect cottage, perfect location”

We stayed here at the beginning of July with our 2 year old daughter. We have fallen in love with the cottage and will definitely be returning. Pickering is the perfect central location. We wanted a holiday where we didn't have to do a lot of driving, so the location was ideal, within a short distance of a lot of beautiful places. The cottage itself was clean and cosy. We had everything that we needed, with many shops within walking distance. Parking wasn't a problem.

We are already planning our next stay.

We enjoyed our stay at Primrose Cottage. It was clean and felt recently decorated. It is a very good location for walks, the North Yorkshire Moors railway, shops, pubs and eating places in Pickering.
The property has all the facilities of home from home and suitable for any length of stay. It is always good to have towels, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets all provided, but it seemed odd that no washing powder was available for the washing machine.
