Great Yorkshire Show

The annual celebration of all things Yorkshire is fast approaching-10th -12th July. It is a wonderful day out and only an hours drive away-we are happy to suggest places to stop and eat on the way back(but you will probably be stuffed with show food and nibbles!!)

Pickering -a great base

We become increasingly aware of what a great base for a visit Pickering is as our guests seem to do more and more things from here. yes Scarborough,Whitby,York, Castle Howard, the Moors are still favourites but so many others as well. Bridligton, Bempton Cliffs and Flamborourgh Head, Burton Agnes and Sledmere and walking the Wolds in one direction.The Cleveland Way , Staithes ,Runswick Bay,Saltburn in the other are all growing in popularity. Many guests now go to Hovingham market and it seems the local Shows are also becoming more of a reason to be in the area. We are happy to advise,guide and help plan your visit

Changes afoot

There are ,as ever, a few changes going at at 17. A new KS bed arrives in room 14 this week and will replace the half -tester, yes it is lovely but guests do find the width and length restrictive. We are also going to develop the bathroom -details to be revealed but stand by to be amazed by the end of the year.

We have a new ,even better value,  pricing arrangement in room 15-only £75 for a one night stay for 2 people B and B-and even better for longer stays

End of my Mayoral term

My year as Mayor of Pickering comes to an end on Monday 20th. It has been a good time especially with the Jubilee and the Olympic Torch relay. We also went to twinning celebrations in Corbie France which was a nice finale. There has been good progress with the Community Park and Flood Defences during the year and we are now assured Lidl will start work in June. The year has made me realise what a super place Pickering is to live and do business
