‘Thank you so much for the use of your lovely cottage for a week - it is a magical place. We’ve had an amazing time and would love to come back again soon! We’ve been to York for some shopping, and the railway museum - well worth a visit! Most of all we’ve enjoyed the birds and wildlife at the cottage - we’ve seen the woodpecker, nuthatch & pheasants. Also, rabbits and a hedgehog came visiting too! Needless to say, the many steam trains were fab and there isn’t a better location!’
'This is our fourth year at the lovely cottage and hope to make it five next year. we come to Pickering for the diesel gala on the NYMR so this cottage is the perfect location. It is cosy & comfortable with everything you need for your stay. As always, the birds on the feeders are a joy to watch.'

'We have spent two wonderful weeks in Railway Cottage enjoying the trains, birds and various other wildlife in the surrounding countryside. The cottage has everything you need for a very comfortable stay and Lize’s scones and jam are very welcome. As a rail enthusiast, my husband never tires of the passing steam trains & has photographed them from every angle!”
‘Another lovely week at the cottage. Thanks again to Lize for the delicious welcoming tray. Fresh eggs for breakfast - a lovely treat. Enjoyed the trains as always and had the added bonus of seeing Sir Nigel Gresley carrying the Olympic torch. We’ve been lucky to have been visited by 2 Great Spotted Woodpeckers almost every day. We even had a pheasant sitting on the fence eating the bird seed. Hope to be back next year’
‘What a wonderful spot.! Many thanks to Lize for the welcome and the ‘goodies’. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the birds and the steam train! We felt like the ‘Railway Children’ - waving to the engine drivers and passengers - or should we say the ‘Railway Pensioners’! Lovely to wake up each morning to the views across the field and woods and the birds singing. Good food locally - best fish & chips ever in the ‘Magpie’ in Whitby! '
'Another fantastic week in the cottage. Loved watching the birds - we even saw the woodpecker! The cottage is so peaceful, a home from home. We will definitely be back ’
‘Lovely welcome, especially wine, scones etc (thanks Lize). Wonderful cottage - we all enjoyed the trains. Have had a busy week - Ryedale Folk Musem and lads paddling in the beck. Whitby & Sandsend, ride on the steam train. Eden Camp and Dalby Forest - all brilliant'
‘We have had a wonderful stay in Railway Cottage! Thankyou! The trains were every bit as exciting as we had hoped and the visitors to the bird feeders, a fantastic bonus. We saw all the usual suspects with the highlight being “Nutty” nuthatch most days and a momentary glance of “Woody”, just enough to know it was him. The cottage seems to have everything you could need, probably because the owners have stayed in it themselves. Whitby Abbey and Scarborough Castle were great. Will happily recommend this lovely little cottage and hope to return soon.’
‘The welcome pack set the tone for the whole stay. Everything was just right. A week wasn’t nearly enough to see everything we wanted to, & I’m sure we will come back’
