  • "A wonderful stay overall, very quiet and peaceful."

    Just a few observations-inaccessible socket near the mirror and nowhere to put things whilst doing my hair. A hook in the bathroom/bedroom and possibly a bath mat (we had to use one of the towels) would add to the comfort. A cheese grater was the only thing missing in the kitchen, otherwise everything had been thought of. These are minor gripes, though, we had a lovely stay and the owners are friendly and helpful. Thoroughly recommend and we hope to return.

  • "The Old Stables is a gem!"

    Finished and fitted out to a high standard, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. It is set in a quiet, peaceful location in beautiful countryside but only a short drive from amenities. The owners are friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this property and will return in the future. Thank you Rachael and Jim for a wonderful holiday!

    The cottage was lovely, clean and comfortable with everything we needed including fresh bread, milk and Prosecco! The surrounding area was beautiful. On our first evening the owner told us they were combining the Wheat in one of their fields opposite so we went to watch and as advised had a really lovely walk through the field to the Beck. The owners were genuinely such warm, friendly and helpful people and cricket lovers as well!! We had a wonderful stay. Thank you.

Kelk Beck Cottages

Amidst the undulating countryside of East Yorkshire is a quaint working farm, home to Kelk Beck Cottages, three beautiful properties in the charming hamlet of Little Kelk benefiting from a peaceful rural location also very close to Fraisthorpe Beach. All three cottages were once former farm buildings and still retain their original features of high apex ceilings held up by rustic wooden beams as well as some original brick walls, adding a history and character to each home. Heated via Biomass powered underfloor heating throughout, as well as having solar panels to boost electricity, you will stay warm whatever the weather outside, enjoying the open-plan living spaces which have been decked out with quality furnishings and features. Plough Cottage and Kingfisher Corner both sleep two guests each, perfect for a romantic break with your other half, while The Stables sleeps four, ideal for a family or two couples, you can all come together in the shared patio garden seating to plan your activities or enjoy the individual patio areas and in the evenings return to your own space. The village of Kelk has a pub for you to enjoy, as well as St. Quintins pub in Harpham (2 miles) and The Old Star pub in Kilham (4 miles), while a further 7 miles away is the market town of Driffield, the Capital of the Wolds. The owner's land includes the most northerly chalk stream in the country, Kelk Beck, special for its rich and stable habitat for a diverse range of plants and fish, it is brimming with rainbow and brown trout; with maps and directions provided by the owner. Take your bikes to enjoy the National Bike Route 1 which is only 0.5 mile away from the cottages, and you can also choose from a variety of interlinking walks to marvel at this rare natural beauty, catch a glimpse of the trout, and take in the scenery of East Yorkshire and the Yorkshire Wolds. Spend a sunny day on the East Yorkshire coastline at Bridlington, a coastal town under 8 miles away - here you can enjoy sunbathing on the golden sands, taking a dip in the north sea, or simply taking a stroll along the coast, with the bay stretching on for miles all the way down to the Humber Estuary.
