    Spacious cottage and very convenient location. The only negative was the church bells ringing every fifteen minutes and on the hour chiming the hour. Other than that a quiet location and lots of interesting small shops. The cottage was very well equipt good bedrooms and plenty of room. One of the single beds does need a new mattress as the springs were sticking up, had to put a spare duvet over it to cushion it. Overall it was very good and we would recommend it.

    We found The Old Kings Head very spacious, clean and well equipt for our party of 5. We used the lower access road to and from the courtyard which is rather narrow initially but much closer to house. The gravel courtyard is shared with 3 other houses and spaces are allocated which worked well with careful manouvering. The town centre is a minute away and we loved the market (Sunday and Monday) local shops and Co-op. Excellent location for exploring North Yorkshire by car. Buses not frequent enough for a relaxed day trip sadly. We had a great steam ride up to Whitby from the local station. Tickets are rather costly but lovely experience. The house itself was a home from home. It is adjoining the church yard and personally I found the Church chimes ( every 15 mins) disturbed my sleep even with the thoughtfully provided earplugs! However others were not too bothered by them , especially in twin room at the front. The basement is full of toys for children although ceiling rather low for anyone over 5 feet . A great place overall for families but not so accessible for those with mobility issues. One of the nicer holiday homes we have rented.

    The Old Kings Head is a great place to stay and although the church is very close the bells are no problem at all. The only 'niggle' was that the loo cleaner had run out in the attic bedroom as had the shower spray also the vacuum cleaners desperately needed emptying which we did so they 'picked up' well. Some areas could have been cleaner in the kitchen especially the cooker. It appears that the cleaners do a very quick job!

    The Old King's Head cottage is beautiful and in an excellent location with parking spaces, it is so comfortable and well equipped with lots of thoughtful extras provided (thank you for the chocolate biscuits). The cottage is well maintained and generally very clean, we did however have a problem with some aspects of the cleaning in the kitchen. The sink and dish drainer were very dirty and stained, we had to spend time cleaning these before we could use them. The kitchen floor didn't look like it had been swept/cleaned properly either. There is a lot of mention of the church bells, they didn't keep us awake or wake us up. The bell ringing on Sunday morning and Wednesday evening was very loud but pleasant to listen to. We would definitely recommend staying here.

    Very spacious and perfect for three generations. Teenagers loved the attic suite and the basement games. Pickering is a great location with easy access to both the moors and coast. We hope to return.

    Lovely homely cottage in a great location in Pickering. Mid November but the whole cottage was lovely and warm even before we lit the log burner. We all want to stay at OKH again.

    Perfect house in the perfect location. Bed were comfy and the house very very well equipped! It feels like a home! Kids just loved all the stairs and of course the games room. Location is perfect for centre of Pickering and for accessing further a field. We would love to visit again. Many thanks!
