Pickering is an historic market town located on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors. With a good old-fashioned friendliness and an unhurried pace of life, it has an excellent selection of shops and restaurants and is the starting point to the iconic North Yorkshire Moors Railway.  Here at Hungate we have the unique advantage of being located within easy walking distance of the town centre, while being tucked away in our own peaceful gardens and courtyards, away from the bustle of town life.
