Description

This unique property is situated just around the corner from Pickering train station, home to the North York Moors steam railway. Originally a work house serving the local mill, Pickering Beckside is full of character and charm, and retains some of its original features. Despite being tucked away in a quiet and peaceful area, this terraced property is only a short walk to the high street, where there are plenty of pubs, shops and restaurants. Pickering is an ancient market town and sits at the foot of the North York Moors National Park. Why not take a ride on the North York Moors steam railway and travel through the stunning North York Moors National Park to Whitby. The property is situated close to Dalby Forest, where you will find great walking and cycling tracks.
This is a great place to stay for those who love the great outdoors. The fabulous Go Ape, a high wire tree top adventure, is situated in the forest, or if you prefer to be closer to the ground, try the forest segways and ride around the forest tracks. Take a day trip to Flamingo Land theme park, which is located just a few minutes drive from the house. Pickering is in the ideal location for visiting the east coast, the North York Moors and the Wolds, as well as lots of bustling market towns such as Beverley, Pocklington and Driffield. Pretty, quaint little villages such as Thornton-le-Dale and Helmsley are within a few minutes drive, as well as the big cities of York and Hull. The seaside resorts of Scarborough, Filey, Flamborough, Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay are all within a short drive. Beach 15 miles. Shop and pub 100 yards, restaurant 150 yards.

About the local area

To the north of York lies the North York Moors, a national park and one of the largest expanses of heather moorland in the UK. The area is bordered by the awe-inspiring North Sea coast cliffs and the Cleveland and Hambleton Hills.

Wild and windswept, the landscape of the North York Moors is breathtaking. Visitors will find miles of purple heather moorland, dense pine forests, hills and coastline. The space and solitude of the moors and its hidden valleys contrasts with the busy villages and towns found dotted in and around the area. They provide excellent opportunities to stop for a drink, a meal or for a taste of culture and tradition, from ancient castles to modern day attractions.

Many visit for the outdoor pursuits on offer. There are thousands of kilometres of paths and tracks to follow on the moors, from short strolls to days-long treks. For serious walkers, hikers and cyclists, the North York Moors are crossed by a number of long distance footpaths, including the Cleveland Way and the famed Coast to Coast walk. For a more leisurely but no less stunning experience, travel the 18 mile journey on the steam railway from Grosmont to Pickering, right through the Moors.

Visit popular destinations in and around the national park. Rievaulx Abbey and its landscape gardens are beautiful, while Helmsley and Pickering are both renowned for their ancient castles. For family-friendly options, try the grounds of Castle Howard or the Ryedale Miniature Railway, as well as the coastline dotted with rock pools and gentle waves.
