Cottage Review:  

Hogwarts cottage is situated in a great position, central to town and steam railway, the cottage is spacious,and easy to locate,unfortunately thier are a few bad points, the shower and bath taps have a mind of thier own, the sofas are small and very tired, the quilts are paper thin, every radiator in the property was turned off apart

from one, the crockery needed washing, as their was food still on them and stains in the cups,,and bathroom mirror not been cleaned for a long time(I wrote clean me on it) all these issues are a bit of a let down,and I do think a little more care is needed in cleanliness before guests arrive, and the welcome pack was bizarre, buscuits, a bar of chocolate, and a pack of crisps,sorry to be so negative but it is a honest revue,,,,,

Cottage Review:  

Perfectly situated opposite the railway station virtually in the centre of Pickering this cottage was great. There are comfortable beds and it's well equipped. This was perfect for our week's stay. As a rail enthusiast I was delighted that you could actually see the trains and the engines from the front room window!

Cottage Review:  

A lovely little cottage just off the high street and right opposite the steam railway in Pickering but the cottage was advertised as having free parking (which is why we booked it) - and this was not the case. The parking on the road is limited to an hour after 8am. We found free parking elsewhere in the village but it wasn't ideal.

There was no welcome pack / information provided which I found strange - I don't think I've ever been anyway where information on the local amenities, local chemist, instructions on how the cooker worked etc weren't provided. The owner did kindly left us a pint of milk, crisps and some biscuits.

The cottage provided most of the basic things you might need but there was no hairdryer (which I would have expected) nor is there a freezer compartment in the fridge, and the bathroom lacked a toilet roll holder or towel rail . The sofas are a bit tired as is some of the decor around the cottage. It could be lovely - it just needs a bit of TLC.

On a positive note Pickering itself is lovely with plenty of places to eat (try the Bay Horse pub) and well served by supermarkets as well as independent shops. We loved watching the steam engine being 'stoked up' which we could see from the cottage and the trip by train to Whitby is well worth it.

Cottage Review:  

We absolutely loved the location of the house as opposite the train station and practically on the high street, this does however mean that parking is restricted. We have a 1 year old, so not being able to park for any length of time by the house was awkward and time consuming. We managed to find unrestricted parking 5-10 minute walk away on Middleton road. Being so central also means a lot of road noise, especially early morning with lorries driving past the house.

The house itself on first appearances seems good, however needs some TLC. One of the sofas i

Appalled how we found this property!

No sign as to what property it is, garden overgrown and sightly. Carpets stained and dirty. Living room door hanging on by one hinge. Tv unit and fireplace thick of dust. Bluray player not working. Table runner stained. Dining room window wall thick of damp and mould!

Only 3 glasses provided when there were 4 of us staying. Every plate chipped. Kettle leaked on every use. Vent above cooker extractor stuffed with towel/sheet, cobwebs present in every room! General decor scruffy and dated. Double bed noisy and terribly

We booked a week break at hog warts cottage. The location is excellent and the cottage is lovely and cosy, clean and welcoming. Everything you need is at hand in the cottage. Pickering itself is a quaint market town full of character. We will certainly be returning.

Had a Fantastic time here over the Easter weekend. The cottage was well equipped and had everything we needed. The location is superb and the cottage is very spacious for only two bedrooms. We are hoping to return for the next bank holiday.
