“Another lovely stay”
Reviewed 11 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Another lovely stay at the Longhouse with a group of old friends. The large kitchen and table easily seated us all for meals and chats, the fabulous main lounge was as before a great place to relax and continue the stories. Excellent house keeping meant everything was exceptionally clean and super quality.

Thanks again Gill

“Amazing property!”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Absolutely amazing place to stay.
Was just like staying in a National Trust property. The antique ornaments/furniture added to the old world charm. The original stove/oven was absolutely delightful. And the huge fireplace was stunning, and mesmerising when lit.
Spotlessly clean throughout.
Only thing we missed was a garden, which is a bit petty, considering we were out and about a lot, with so many places to visit nearby. We had a very, very good holiday in "Gods own county" :-)

“Lovely accommodation in a great location.”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The stay at the Longhouse was a very comfortable, with good kitchen and bathroom facilities, everything was there to aid a holiday break. The location close to the centre of Pickering was ideal and provided great access to shops and restaurants.

“Excellent let for 6 adults”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

We absolutely loved The Longhouse in Pickering. There were 6 of us there June 17-22, 2016.

It had all great points: Wonderful old architecture; very comfortable, lovely furnishings; the best equipped kitchen I've ever encountered in a holiday let; full-size washing machine and separate tumble dryer; very spacious rooms, including 3 lounges; huge kitchen with very large dining table, large refrigerator, dishwasher; comfortable beds, excellent showers en suite with each bedroom; parking in courtyard.

What's not to like? Lack of internet. There was none. Several reviewers said there was internet, others said not. It is not listed as an amenity, so I asked about it. I was told there was internet, but sketchy. None of us was ever able to get it. That's the only reason The Longhouse gets 4 stars from me instead of 5. I would do 4.5 stars if I could.

“Lovely acommodation, had a great week and well kitted out.”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Group of 3 adults and 4 children. Spacious accommodation and did not feel in each others pockets. Gill has kitted out the cottage and specifically the kitchen with all that one would need. A real home away from home. We would return if in the area again and also recommend the Longhouse to all of our friends and family.
