Keld Head House is perhaps one of the most attractive and distinguished properties in Pickering, guaranteed to catch the eye when entering or leaving this lovely market town. Dating from the 17th Century and listed Grade II, the property is steeped in history and displays a wealth of period features including fine Oak panelling, beamed ceilings, elegant fireplaces and exposed stonework. Throughout the property there are rooms of good proportions (essential for growing families and/or entertaining) and likewise the bedrooms ….not a poky room in sight! For those with hobbies or the need to work from home, there are workshops and studio rooms above the garage; alternatively these would make a great ‘den’ for teenagers. The beautifully landscaped gardens surrounding the property are a joy and afford a good degree of privacy. They include a substantial Summer House providing a peaceful resting place at the end of a day in order to enjoy the fruits of one’s labour (or that of the paid gardener!!). Overall a great “must see” house …good looking, robust, and decidedly roomy.

Pickering lies at the foot of the North York Moors National Park where the A170 gives quick and easy access to Scarborough on the east coast and to nearby market towns of Kirkbymoorside and Helmsley to the west. To the south, the A169 leads to Malton and in turn onto the A64 to York. Visit for further information on community news, things to do, places of interest, business, shopping etc.
