From your new build in Pickering, you can explore the fabulous outdoors with countless places to walk and bike, or take to its bustling streets for retail therapy in its independent shops and cafés.

Take a journey back in time on the North York Moors' railway from Pickering’s 1930s station. Explore Beck Isle Museum’s period traders’ shops or have a little bit of quiet contemplation in the medieval church with one of the country’s most complete sets of wall paintings. When you have enjoyed the sights, grab a glass of  award-winning ale from the Cropton Brewery - all so close to your beautiful new home in Pickering.
