Things To Do in Pickering
With up to three dogs to consider, plus your human guests, you’ll be glad to know that Pickering and its surrounding area has plenty to occupy everyone. As the house sits in the heart of the town, everything you need is within a short walk, including all provisions, food, drink and all the charms of an ancient but thriving market town.
Having fortified yourselves, spend the morning in Pickering Castle, dating back to the 13th century and overlooking the surrounding countryside. The castle hosts a wide range of events throughout the year.
Pickering stands on Pickering Beck, and the Beck Isle Museum is a snapshot of Victorian life in the town, which is well worth a morning or afternoon. For the younger ones, Pickering Ghost Hunt sends shivers up the spine. From the museum, cross over to Pickering Station, and get on board the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.
This working steam service was made famous by Harry Potter, is dog friendly and passes through some spectacular scenery, including the Larpol Viaduct. The line goes all the way to the coast at Whitby and links with the national network at both Whitby and Grosmont.
Alight the train in (or take a short drive to) the North York Moors National Park. Enjoy fabulous scenery, hundreds of miles of walks and cycle paths, try canoeing, white water rafting, horse riding, adventure activities or maybe watch the wildlife. Don’t forget to stop at one of the many towns and villages and enjoy some truly excellent food and drink.
This is an exceptional holiday let for all sorts of reasons. To start with, you can enjoy the feel of a grade II listed, original terrace cottage complete with its own courtyard where they used to stable the horses. This is where you can enjoy a peaceful breakfast or supper away from prying eyes while never being far from the very heart of a thriving market town. The dogs will love exploring the old streets of the town and all the sights and smells of the fresh food and local produce on sale.
Both people and dogs will also enjoy the visitor attractions in and around Pickering, from the Castle to the Beck Isle Museum and the local parks. The train station shouldn’t be missed, and even better is a ride on the actual locomotives through the Moors, through places made famous by films and television series due to their picturesque beauty. The coast is not far away, and an easy drive or a very pleasant train journey.
Along the way, don’t miss the chance to visit the North York Moors, an extraordinary part of Yorkshire that is a bit more rugged than the Dales and home to lots of river valleys with attractions for sightseers energetic visitors alike.
