Lowther House - build in 1843 - is a modestly proportioned stone building that is part of the Duchy of Lancaster Estate. Set at the end of a long drive in a clearing in Pickering Woods there is a real country feel about it yet it is just a fifteen minute walk down a tree-lined road into Pickering Town Centre.
Bordered on two sides by Pickering Beck and on the other two sides by a wood and Lowther Butts wild flower reserve, it is well placed for a relaxing holiday getaway in a picturesque setting with many attractions close by to keep you entertained. The North York Moors Railway station - Pickering's most popular destination - is just ten minutes walk away and the passing trains can be viewed from our garden.
You can walk into the North York Moors National Park from our gate and the Yorkshire Wolds are near by too. This makes Lowther House the perfect location for exploring this beautiful area. There are also excellent cycle tracks close by and in the near by Dalby Forest. The coast is not far so you can sample the delights of seaside towns like Scarborough, Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay - to name but a few! For those that enjoy history there are many historic sites to visit in this area.
We look forward to welcoming you soon - Elliot & Carole
Evening Meals are available to our B & B guests from mid October to the end of March. (pre-booking is required). Select 2 or 3 courses. If you would like to sample one of our delicious Afternoon Teas please pre-book by ringing us or sending us an email.

(you'll have to visit to see what these are!!!)

BOOKING - If you are planning to stay with us we would like to encourage you to book directly via this web site.

DINNING - Dinner can be booked by advance request only and is available from 1st November to mid March . We have found that quite a few of our B & B guests have taken this option especially during the more inclement months. This saves them having 'discussions' about who is designated driver!!
CHILDREN - We only accommodate children over 12 years old. We can not put an extra bed in any of the rooms - sorry.
DOGS - Your four legged friend is most welcome but only if he/she is a small sized dog. Please note that dogs are not allowed in the dinning room during breakfast service - sorry. and we prefer that they aren't left alone in your room. Please read our 'House Rules for Dogs' (click 'House Rules for Dogs' or there is a copy that can be accessed at the bottom of our Look and Book page in our Booking Policy section). For each stay there will be a £10 charge.
