“Lovely acommodation, had a great week and well kitted out.”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Group of 3 adults and 4 children. Spacious accommodation and did not feel in each others pockets. Gill has kitted out the cottage and specifically the kitchen with all that one would need. A real home away from home. We would return if in the area again and also recommend the Longhouse to all of our friends and family.

“Fantastic find”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Rented the Long House with 4 friends for a long weekend away to celebrate my 60th. As soon as Gill opened the door for us the WOW factor started.
It was a perfect set up, the location was excellent and the facilities were spot on. We were out & about in the daytime but it was so warm and welcoming to come home to, comfy beds, squashy comfortable sofas and a lovely log burner. Plenty of games, DVD's & books if you needed them, it was superb.
Thank-you Gill for the goodies on arrival very much appreciated by us all. And I think we will be back in the future.

“Lovely cottage”
Reviewed 5 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Had a really nice long weekend at the Longhouse.
A really spacious cottage with 3 good sized bedrooms with each having there own bathroom which was great as there were 6 of us.
A great size kitchen which was fully equipped with everything we needed.
Loved the log burner at night which made the cottage really cosy.
The owners were really friendly which lived directly behind the cottage and left us milk eggs, jam and biscuits which was much appreciated.
Easy to find and good parking at the property.
Pickering was lovely and we enjoyed a trip to Whitby on the steam train stopping off at some lovely places.
We found a lovely pub/ restaurant called the Grapes inn which was very accomadating and the food was superb about 10 min drive away.
Overall a lovely weekend despite the rain, would definitely return.

“Fantastic property for a family.”
Reviewed 28 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed for 3 days at short notice. The Longhouse exceeded our expectations, in fact the photos on the web site do not do it justice! Our family of 5 adults and 3 children fitted comfortably in the spacious property. The kitchen/diner was well equipped and Gil the owner very kindly had left us some eggs, milk, biscuits and jam for our arrival.

“Great new year break in The Longhouse Pickering”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My husband and I along with sister, brother in law and 2 friends have just returned from a fantastic 4 night break at The Longhouse in Pickering. We had never been to Yorkshire before so we're not sure what to expect. When we arrived we were delighted with the beautiful house very spacious and comfortable for the 6 of us, we all had our own en suite which is nice when your sharing accommodation with others. The house was lovely and warm with a great log burner in the lounge. The owner Gill and her husband were very helpful giving us lots of local info and even left us jam, eggs and biscuits which were appreciated.
The local town was lovely with several good pubs and restaurants all within easy walking distance, so all in all we had a great new year break and will definitely go back to see a bit more of the beautiful countryside in the area.
Thank you
