Whistle Stop Cottage, Newbridge, Nr. Pickering is a gem. I found it through Air BnB,

It was right by the Steam Railway line and at the time I was there there was always some activity to be seen whilst they were carrying out necessary maintenance.
The above picture was taken at the bottom of the garden.
The one below taken from my bedroom window.
The machine seemed to be levelling the gravel underneath and beside the tracks. There was much laughter and friendly banter going on for most of the day.
Walking to the end of the row of cottages brought you to a path
that went over the railway in front of another row of cottages
Following this path through the woods I could get to Pickering in about 15 minutes
Such a delightful walk
Then just before you got to the station you could cross the railway again and walk back along the path and see all the vintage carriages waiting to be of service.
Then along by the river
over a stone stile and pass by a row of dwellings where a lovely gazebo awaited
summer gatherings on balmy nights under the fairy lights, a few bottles of wine and warm conversation.
Then back along the path to the cottage,
What a delightful walk to the shops.
There was filming going on at the station
Lights, camera, action! I saw hustle and bustle but nothing very interesting except when the train was puffing by and helicopters swooped over head
look at these fabulous old wooden carriages
And after all that excitement, at the end of the day, I could cosy up, light the fire and carry on with my collage …… mmmmmmmm bliss!
I was so happy in that cottage and got to chat with a few of my neighbours there, a little hamlet of about 10 houses. I would have been happy to stay for much longer.
In the next post you wll be coming on a trip to Dalby Forest with me and Cathy, to see that Nissen Hut.
