Town: Ebberston is a picturesque village that sits on the edge of the Forge Valley which hasbeen recognised as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village itself is small, comprising little more than a scattering of stone-built cottages and two pubs that serve good food and real ales to the locals and visitors alike. Adding to the chocolate-box effect, a stream runs through Ebberston and flows into the River Derwent. There are plenty of activities in the village, such as horse-riding, a children's play area and a nine-hole golf course. If you like a little more thrill to your relaxation, Ebberston also has a quad-biking facility. In an area of such spectacular scenery there are, of course, a number of walks and cycle-paths to explore. Slightly further afield, you will find attractions such as Dalby Forest, Pickering and Scampston Walled Garden. Railway-enthusiasts will enjoy the famous North Yorkshire Steam Railway and families will enjoy the amenities offered by the seaside towns of Scarborough and Filey.

St Mary's mission was a beautiful building to stay in and the wood burning stove soom heated up the house. If you enjoy cooking the kitchen is very well laid out and creates a sociable atmosphere in which to prepare a meal for your family. I would recommend this cottage for a great get away.

what a beautiful building. A lot of TLC has gone into
this restoration ensuring that it keeps all of its character and charm amongst modern fittings. the village of Ebberston is lovely and tranquil and it is ideal for all of the East Coast resorts as well as the moors and surrounding villages. The Kitchen and bathrooms are really high spec and have to be seen to be fully appreciated. All in all a great place to stay and we will definately be having a return visit. ps Laura (aged 5) thought that the bunkbeds were fantastic!!

The accomodation is cleverly designed and well appointed. Only down sides were general cleanliness on arrival and that in parts some finishing was still required. Otherwise a great location for touring the surrounding countryside, and for the local pub (there is only one)up on the main road (The Grape)where we were made to feel like locals as we took full advantage of the excellent food and ales! Will probably return in the future.

We were 6 adults staying for the Pickering War weekend and really enjoyed our stay at this very sympathetically converted Sunday School. The only reason it hasn't got 5 stars is the 3rd bedroom which is incredibly small. It does sleep 2 adults in bunk beds and has a wardrobe, but no room for anything else, and certainly not enough room for 2 people to get dressed at the same time!
We liked everything else about the property; it had plenty of room in the kitchen and living area for 6 adults. It has obviously only recently been converted and equiped, so everything is new and modern. We especially liked the wood burning stove!
Ebberston is a pleasant, quiet village, only about 15 minutes drive from Pickering, and close to lots of other places of interest in the area. We would certainly use this property again

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ebberston. A surprisingly spacious property, full of character with good quality fittings and well equipped kithen. We reported a couple of minor niggles that needed attention at end of our stay but nothing that spoiled our holiday and am convinced they would have been dealt with. The owners clearly love and take good care of the property.
We wanted somewhere the children could study for exams yet within easy reach of places to visit when they wanted a break. It was perfect! It was in a quiet village location yet within easy reach of shops for groceries and places to visit such as Scarborough and Flamingo Land. Due to the location a car is essential and although parking was on the road it was never a problem, even with two cars. We loved sitting in the deep window sills to read and the internet was a huge bonus. It took a while to sort out as the instructions weren't very clear but the owner was very helpful in getting us online.
Overall..... Brilliant! Would definitely recommend it and consider visiting again.
