Situated in the lovely Yorkshire town of Pickering, Colourfield Cottage is a 200-year-old, stone-built, mid-terraced cottage with a rear lawned garden, 10 yards away. Renovated and tastefully decorated the two-bedroom property is a welcome retreat from hectic city life. Step out of the front door and hear the whistle of the steam trains calling from nearby Pickering station. There’s a lovely rear garden ideal for sitting out and sipping wine on a summer’s evening after a stroll on the moors. For keen cyclists who want to bring their own bikes, there is a lockable outbuilding available. Dalby Forest is a short cycle ride away with fantastic mountain bike trails to suit all abilities. You can even ’Go Ape’ for the day in the tops of the trees. Just 200 yards from the centre of Pickering, ideally located for exploring both the North York 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 York Moors steam train.
