Situated within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, this is an ideal location to enjoy walking, cycling or horse riding.

Located in the secluded hamlet of Littlebeck, within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, these prestigious detached holiday properties are set in 6 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens, home to an abundance of wildlife. Outside of the hamlet, the steep winding roads and hills open onto the moorland where breath taking scenery can be enjoyed from the many bridle and cycle tracks. Discover quaint little villages tucked away deep in valleys where friendly locals wait to greet you and where some of Yorkshire’s finest cuisine can be enjoyed from the inns and tea rooms dotted across the moors. Ideally located for exploring the Heritage coast of Yorkshire with the ancient seaport of Whitby just 5 miles, known for its connections with Captain James Cook, 3 miles of sandy beaches and a bustling harbour all overlooked by the Abbey ruins. The NYM steam train departs from Whitby throughout the season and takes a memorable journey through the glorious Esk valley into Heartbeat villages of Grosmont and Goathland. Smugglers coves of Robin Hoods Bay and Runswick bay are easily reached, where fossil hunting and rock pooling will entertain the children for hours. Market towns, such as Pickering, Malton and Helmsley are all easily reached. Visit some of the many historic homes, halls and castles that surround this area returning at the end of your day to the peace and tranquillity on offer in Littlebeck. Good pubs/restaurants locally. Shops 2 miles.

    The down rated review and reason behind that we feel unable to recommend a stay isn’t taken lightly as it should also be noted there are many good/excellent things, but safety during our stay we believe made it at times very unrelaxing experience also. The cause of our safety concerns was the stairs. The tread is small, banasters could be improved and a night light i’d stongly suggest given the need to use bathroom at night. During our stay with 4-adults one under 2 and a baby, two adults and the under 2 had incidents. 2nd consideration is access to Littlebeck requires traveling up/down 30 degree narrow twisting roads, which perhaps there are smother routes, but not by much and wouldn’t stop need for the final entry to the cottage, where we had a near collision pulling out from, there is a mirror placed but the strobe gradient means motorists are often challenged to stop. It’s these issues we believe due to not living with daily pose very challenging to a one week holiday maker. Yet to conclude, you would be hard pressed to find more accommodating owners or a location that offers the facilities on site with a location where you be able to fully enjoy what the area has to offer.

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are sorry that you felt you had issues with the stairs and the approach roads in and out of Littlebeck and this impacted on your stay. The cottage information clearly states that there are steep stairs. The bannister is secure and is a full bannister on the right hand side of the stairs. There are lights at the top of both staircases which could be switched on. We are disappointed that the guest didn’t approach us if a night light and safety gate was required as both are available and we are on site. The typical roads in and out of the North Yorkshire moors are steep and winding in places. Our cottage information states that there are steep hills on the surrounding roads. We would however like to thank you for the positive comments.

    Amazing cottage, very quiet/relaxing and private but also close to lots of attractions for days out. Everything you could want in the kitchen for cooking, unlike some cottages. Lovely big bath, very clean. Wi-fi great, freeview and plenty of DVDs to chose from. Cant fault it at all, 10/10. Great place to stay!!!! Oh yeah and saw a badger one night!!

    An amazing spot to spend a family holiday together. Despite being December we were out enjoying the garden or the local countryside every day. Beautifully decorated for Christmas and the Kitchen had everything we could have wanted to cook Christmas dinner.

    The only negative i have is the fact that the cottage is located in a valley with VERY steep hills. The cottage is really lovely and set in lovely landscaped gardens and is very peaceful. The hosts were very welcoming as were the wine,cake,biscuits and chocolate!

    Beautiful location with well equipped, comfortable accommodation. There's plenty for the children, including boating, games room and play area. For the more mature ones, there's fishing and the beautiful landscaped gardens to enjoy. The hosts are warm, friendly and very helpful. We always enjoy our stay at LIttlebeck and shall return. If you're looking for a relaxing, peaceful haven, then this is it.

    A beautiful location and lovely building but too remote for us. The long skinny lanes up and down hills were a worry and not many passing spaces along the way. No WiFi in the mill and no phone signal. Felt very cut off from the world. You had to pay extra to use the washing machine which I didn't like after paying over £1,000 for the week to stay here. The grounds were lovely and the play area for children was kept in good order.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. Since your stay we have now had wifi put into all our properties.
