Description
Pickering is a thriving market town found at the foot of the North York Moors National Park, along the A170 Thirsk to Scarborough Road. As a result there are excellent links to the East Coast and City of York where the Intercity Service runs from London to Edinburgh. Pickering has a good range of shops, a Monday street market, well respected schools for all ages and amenities that include Doctors surgery, Dentist and library. There are also a wealth of recreational activities close to hand, such as Dalby Forest, The North York Moors Steam Train and Pickering Castle.

Willowgate is one of the older streets in the town. It's gentle slope being lined with mostly stone character cottages running right into the market place. Kings Head Cottage is a Grade II Listed, 'cruck' cottage, believed to date back to the late 1600's. It is a former coaching house that backs onto Pickering Church yard and has over the years been transformed to offer attractive and surprisingly spacious accommodation, with all the modern conveniences of a family home yet retaining much of its period charm. Over recent years the property has been used as a second home and holiday letting cottage. Its proximity to the town, smart appearance and ample parking ideally suit this purpose.

Kings Head Cottage has a good sized reception hall with cloak cupboard and an ornamental fireplace. This leads to both a ground floor shower room and the main sitting room with exposed ceiling beams and a log burning stove (currently covered). There is a fitted kitchen with a range of white goods and space enough for a breakfast table as well as a separate dining room that over looks the church yard. Upstairs there are three bedrooms (two doubles and a single) with
fitted furniture and a house bathroom.

The cottage has limited outside space in the form of garden but there is room to sit outside, two outhouses for storage and parking for at least two cars.
