The cottage adjacent to the owner’s home is a fine example of a cruck-framed Yorkshire longhouse which was traditionally built to accommodate both family and cattle under one roof. It is featured alongside similar longhouses in Ryedale in a book entitled ‘Houses of the North York Moors’ by the Royal Commission on Historical Monuments. The house is brimming with character having a host of original features such as the oak cruck beams stone flagged floors exposed stonework and a traditional cast iron Victorian range with a ‘smoke window’ in the dining room.\nInside this spacious cottage is decorated in a style to compliment the character of the cottage. Downstairs the central dining room has a seating area around the decorative Victorian range and a cottage dining table and chairs. The dining room leads into a spacious fully equipped kitchen with a large farmhouse table also into a cosy snug with its own decorative open fireplace and to a separate living room.

The master bedroom has an imposing timber frame exposed to the eaves and accommodates three people having a kingsize bed and a single bed. There is also a twin room and a double room. A small courtyard garden is accessed through patio doors from the living room.\nThe Long House is conveniently situated along the A170 just minutes from Pickering centre with its many fine inns cafés restaurants and attractions including a 12th-century castle and the famous North Yorkshire Moors Railway running through the heart of the National Park.

    out of 10

    We had a great week at the Long House with the cottage big enough for 6 adults, 1 toddler and 2 dogs. Pickering is a wonderful location for exploring the surrounding moors, with destinations like York, Whitby and Scarborough in easy reach. The owners were helpful but very respectful of our privacy. The local pub, The Sun was great and very dog friendly but does not serve food, however, there were plenty of pubs, restaurants and takeaways in Pickering to choose from. The cottage is very well equipped and the wifi was better than expected for the area. We would love to come back to Pickering again and we would definitely consider the Long House as our base, the pictures do not do this lovely old house justice.
