Just 200 yards from the centre of Pickering, ideally located for exploring both the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, the Heritage Coast of Yorkshire and the Yorkshire Wolds. The historic market town of Pickering is home to a 12th Century castle, a small theatre and the North Yorkshire Moors steam train. Board the train, sit back, relax and enjoy some of Yorkshire’s finest scenery as it chugs its way through the glorious Esk Valley. Take a stroll along the cobbled streets on market day, browse the antique curio shops then pop into one of the many inns for lunch, all offering a warm and friendly welcome. War Weekends in Pickering sees the streets packed with visitors from far and wide. Dressed in their vintage costumes, the town becomes alive with music from the 40’s and is a sight to behold. There are fishing and trout farms just 400 yards from Aconley Cottage, providing fun days for adults and children alike and you are guaranteed a catch for supper!
