Beckside Cottage description

Holiday home
This 18th Century stable conversion is in a secluded corner of Lastingham and has been lovingly restored to a high standard with all the accommodation on the ground floor. The sitting area is light and inviting and has an electric log-effect fire, making the room snug and welcoming. There is a compact fitted kitchen with a cosy dining area and the spacious double bedroom is well furnished and decorated with an en-suite bathroom, making it a relaxing room at the end of a day's sightseeing activities. Outside, the patio is next to a murmuring stream - a perfect spot to reflect and enjoy the peace. This property offers an idyllic retreat for a romantic holiday in this spectacular countryside at any time of year.

The tiny village of Lastingham is a quiet haven on the edge of the North York Moors with beautiful countryside all around it. The best known building in the village is the Crypt Church of St Mary with its ancient crypt. St Cedd founded a monastery in Lastingham in the 7th Century, but it was destroyed by the Danes in the 9th Century. Pickering is seven miles away and is home to The Beck Isle Museum, which is housed in a handsome Regency property near the centre of the town. Other attractions in the town include The North Yorks Moors Steam Railway. With many castles, historic houses, abbeys, churches and other heritage sites, along with the glorious surrounding countryside, this is a tremendous base for a memorable holiday.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

Electric storage heaters with electric fire in sitting area. Electric hob, dual oven (microwave and roaster), fridge, combi TV/DVD, radio, CD player, WiFi. All fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Ample off road parking in enclosed driveway with additional roadside parking within 10 yards. Streamside patio. Sorry, no pets and no smoking. Shop 4 miles, pub 2 mins walk. Note: Due to the close proximity of the stream the property is not suitable for children under 10.

The location is superb, it was away from the hustle and bustle of towns but close enough to be convenient. We were made welcome and felt at home straight away. There was plenty to do and still more to see, if we can we would like to visit again.

We loved the whole package. Soothing, relaxing, to go to sleep and wake up in the morning to the sound of the water lapping from the beck - brilliant. We certainly shall be back and we have already spread the word and told all of our friends. Plenty of things to do all within a short distance - who could ask for anything more. Loved the walks - even the ones on the doorstep on to the moors.
Mr Brennan

May 2015
Once again for our third visit standard is just as high. Thank you. Also a handy pub around the corner if you want a very good meal.
June 2014
No winding down needed here. As soon as I sat on the patio with a glass of wine listening to the sounds of the bubbling stream I started chilling! Although Beckside is quite a small property, it has been tastefully and cleverly planned to give it a spacious feel. It was spotlessly clean with quality furnishings. The only disadvantage we found was that the kitchen area was a little cramped for us, and whilst a microwave combination oven is adequate, we found it a little restrictive for our needs.
August 2013
A perfect cottage for two people to escape to. Great facilities in a perfect location and If you want to put on half a stone, visit the Blacksmiths Arms, a 5 minute walk away with great food and drink from very friendly hosts. Lastingham is a superb location to explore the Moors and this cottage is the place to do it from.

this was our 2nd stay in Beckside. we had 1 week last year but booked 3 weeks this time and it was just as great. we did loads of travelling but always felt at home once back in the cottage. the time went too quickly but we have a week next year to look forward to now. Cannot fault anything. as well as all the amenities in the cottage there is also the use of the owners washing machine & dryer. Robyn & Alan are the perfect hosts. Thank you so very much for everything. The village is small & unspolit with friendly residents and the most wonderful pub. No mobile phone signal though anywhere in the village. not a problem for us though.but there is wi fi in the cottage. look forward to our return.
June 2012
The cottage is clean, nicely decorated and well-equipped. I have fond memories of morning coffee sitting on the bench overlooking the stream listening to birdsong. The cottage is in a superb location with moorland walks on the doorstep and a friendly village pub serving fine food.

June 2012
We stayed here for a week and cannot fault the cottage. It is well equipped clean and comfortable. The owners are so accommodating and very welcoming. They have equipped it to a very high standard and obviously want to do the very best for their guests. We felt so at home there. In fact we really did not want to leave. The village and it's residents are very friendly. The location is good for travelling around the Moors and to York, Whitby, Scarborough and many more places of beauty and interest.
January 2012
From the moment we were welcomed by the owner to the moment we left this was the perfect get away from it all break. The cottage was very cosy for a winter break, we could also see it as ideal for those warmer evenings, sitting outside by the beck. Although Lastingham is in a lovely quiet valley the towns of Whitby, Scarborough and Malton are all within easy reach. Walking on the Moors is accessible from the door-step,wonderful countryside to explore in all seasons as long as you are fully prepared; walking boots,etc. are essential. We hope to return in the very near future.
December 2011
Welcomed by the owner who showed us round the cottage and explained where everything was and how to use the fire,water heater etc.It was lovely and warm and a very compact cottage with all we needed.Very small village with no shops and only one pub/restaurant.Had a meal there on two occasions,good food and friendly staff.We wanted a quiet and relaxing break and that's just what we had.Would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting same.
February 2010
The perfect vacation home .Clean warm and cosy cottage.The owners were friendly and welcoming but also not overpowering. we knew where they were if we needed anything .We would certainly recommend this property.
August 2011
Lovely welcome from the owner,plenty of information given about the pub meals across the road-didn't use it once-found all we wanted in lovely shops in Kirkbymoorside.Bedroom very comfortable and cozy,lovely little cottage for 2.Sheep round-up-was very amusing to watch.Very close to Whitby,Staithes and Scarborough,not to be missed on your tour of the area.
January 2010
I had a wonderful holiday. The cottage was in a beautiful and quiet spot - it was just a short walk from a top notch pub in what is a very pretty and peaceful village. The cottage was just the right size for my husband and I and the owner was very friendly and helpful. We found that the location was ideal as a base for exploring the moors - we found a number of very good walks, including to Rosedale Abbey and Hutton-le-Hole that started from Lastingham. I would love to go back again.
Mr Westbury
July 2016
A beautiful cottage in an idyllic, relaxing village. Quite simply, the nicest place we've ever stayed in the UK!

A beautiful cottage, clean & comfortable, a good place to explore the moors. Friendly owner and great food in the village pub.
December 2009
The cottage was small but nicely appointed in all respects except for the cooking facilities. There was no proper oven and we found the combination microwave difficult to use. [Had we stayed longer we would probably have come to terms with it!]. Location superb. A lovely little village on the edge of the moors. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would use the cottage again.
December 2009
We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks here and were very disappointed to discover that this property is about to be taken off the books as the owners are planning to reoccupy it.
December 2009

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything we needed was in the property. The surrounding area is great for walking and site seeing. Lovely to get away from it all. The village is a few miles from the nearest shops so transport is necessary.
