Full Description


Bordering rich meadows where sheep and cows graze, our nine highly individual cottages provide a perfect base for those seeking a countryside setting whilst still being only a short walk to the lovely old market town. Pickering’s attractions include the famous North York Moors steam railway, a historic 12thcentury castle, Victorian museum and indoor swimming pool as well as excellent shops, market, pubs and restaurants selling superb local produce.

Our traditional stone cottages are set around a peaceful courtyard and fountain with large adjoining gardens that contains a Garden house and barbeque and play area. They retain much of their original rustic character with open beamed ceilings, traditional stone fireplaces and pan tile roofs so typical of the area. These spacious cottages have superbly equipped kitchens and are furnished to an extremely high standard with the emphasis on comfort and relaxation.

If you would like to take some of the “self” out of self-catering or would like to celebrate a special occasion we can prepare a gourmet meal for you and personally served in your cottage. Specialty catering can be arranged for birthdays, anniversaries, picnics and barbecues and we also have a range of locally produced frozen meals to suit most tastes.

Our Cottage are at the gateway to the North York Moors, so take time to discover their spectacular rolling hills, heather clad moorland, forests and pretty villages (Heartbeat & Harry Potter country). Within a short drive is Yorkshire’s heritage coastline with sandy beaches, towering cliffs, bird reserves and tiny fishing villages or the ancient city walls and narrow cobbled streets of the historic city of York. All around us the area has some of the finest stately homes, castles, museums, theme parks, zoo, working farms and breweries or be energetic – go rambling, cycling, mountain biking, horse riding, and quad biking, fishing or play golf.

Whatever you’re ideal holiday, a Keld Head Farm Cottage holiday will exceed your expectations and once experienced, will draw you back time and time again.
