    • “We stayed at this cottage over Easter weekend. It's compact but perfectly formed! It's situated in a very lovely village with a great pub which we can highly recommend. Its next to the small stream and it's very peaceful. It was equipped with everything that we needed, tastefully decorated and we had a lovely four days. My husband even left his coat in the cottage and the owners very kindly posted it back – so thank you! We would definitely recommend this property.”

    • “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.”

    • “another great stay”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “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.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “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.”

    • “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.”

    • “The perfect 'get away from it all' cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “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.”

    • “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.”

About the location


Pickering 7 miles; Yorkshire Coast 25 miles; York 30 miles.

The charming village of Lastingham engenders peace and relaxation and has much to offer today’s holidaymaker. It is a place of unique beauty and historic interest, nestling among the folds of hills at the southern edge of the North York Moors. This quiet haven, with less than 100 inhabitants, has a charming olde worlde pub, The Blacksmith’s Arms, but perhaps its most famous building is the splendid and historic Crypt Church of St Mary with its wonderful ancient crypt. The surrounding area has many and varied attractions - The North York Moors Steam Railway, Hutton-le-Hole Folk Museum, Eden Camp Modern History Museum and Flamingo Land Theme Park. There’s an abundance of castles, abbeys, churches and stately homes to visit, including the magnificent Castle Howard. Last, but not least, there’s the glorious countryside - woodland and heather moorland, hills, dales and coast.
