Cottage owners expect you to leave the property in the same condition as you found it - clean and tidy - and will almost always provide cleaning materials for you. Dog owners favour cottage holidays because many properties will not just allow pets but provide a few basic supplies. We often have late availability cottages to rent in Pickering for all seasons - spring, summer, autumn and winter.

In Pickering, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. Mid-July til the end of August are the core weeks for the Pickering school summer holidays. 

Half term in the summer extends across the first half of June, as different schools break up at different times. Last minute bookings are alway possible, though clearly your choices will be fewer. It really is worth booking early. 

More and more cottages seem to be signing up with agencies to help with their bookings.

Holiday Cottages

As a reminder, we do not actually take the cottage bookings, we simply connect your with the agencies or owners. Some of the best cottages in Pickering are really excellent and so we encourage you to make your reservation as soon as possible to avoid availability disappointment. 

Although you may not be familiar with the Pickering area you'll usually find that the owners have left a welcome manual with details of local places to eat, drink and buy supplies. Pickering is a great locations for a cottage holiday due to their proximity to local facilities and amenities. 

Some people ask whether bed linens and towels are provide, and in our experience linen is yes, towels can be no - but you should check with the owner / agency. 

Families, Friends and More

Self-catering is an ideal way to holiday in Pickering. It's so much more relaxing when you can eat when it suits you - cooking exactly when you want (and whatever you want). 

And if you have specific dietary needs, whether that's something relatively common like vegetarianism or a more unusual food allergy, cooking your own food allows you peace of mind. Waking up without the alarm, cooking a nice hearty breakfast, perhaps sitting by the river for a spot of fishing or just reading a book. 

On the other hand, there's a growing proportion of visitors who use their time away from home to get fitter and try new things - such as mountain biking, horse riding or canoeing.
