Grouped around and adjacent to the Low Costa Mill farmhouse, a collection of seven cottages have been skilfully and sympathetically adapted from former farm and mill buildings. Retaining many original features, such as exposed beams and brickwork, these cottages make an ideal base for families, small groups and couples, or for anyone who appreciates the peace and tranquillity of the countryside, but only 1 ½ miles away from the bustling town of Pickering.
Pickering’s attractions include the North York Moors steam railway, a historic 12th century castle, and local museum as well as excellent shops, market, pubs, restaurants and cafes selling superb local produce.
All cottages are well equipped with colour TV, DVD player, Digital Radio, fridge, oven, microwave, most have dishwashers, all have a washing machine, or access to the laundry area. Travel Cots, highchairs and stair-gates can all be provided at no additional cost. Children of all ages will love the large grassy play area, equipped with swings, a climbing frame, goal posts, a basketball hoop, and giant outdoor board games. Whatever the weather you can be guaranteed hours of fun in the indoor heated swimming pool, for the really little ones there is an adjacent children’s pool.
There is an extensive information area, with a large selection of games and jigsaws to borrow. For fly fishing fanatics, you will find the Costa Beck is well stocked with trout and grayling, you may even catch a glimpse of the resident kingfishers and the shy grey heron. Alternatively, why not take a stroll around the peaceful woodland walk, or wander around the duck pond to enjoy the wildlife.
There are ample outdoor seating areas, with BBQs available for guest use. We are open all year, with weekly breaks on a Friday-Friday basis, in the off season we specialise in short breaks, with a minimum of 3 nights. Each season has new delights to offer.
The resident owners, Dave and Tracy Goodfellow occupy the farmhouse, and are always on-hand for help and advice. We have a variety of accommodation, suiting parties from two to eight visitors.
