Keld Head Farm Cottages

Self Catering

Bordering meadows where sheep graze, these nine highly individual cottages provide a perfect base for those seeking a countryside setting whilst still being only a short walk to the lovely ancient market town. Pickering's attractions include the famous North York Moors steam railway, a historic 12th century castle, Victorian museum and indoor swimming pool as well as excellent shops, market, pubs and restaurants selling superb local produce. The traditional stone cottages are set around a peaceful courtyard and fountain with large adjoining gardens that contains a Garden house and barbecue 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.
