  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks family holiday here."

    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.

  • "An absolutely brilliant little place to stay."

    The only (very slight) downside was that the mattress on the bed was a little too stiff for our liking. It wouldn't stop us from coming back though.

  • "Our break was very much needed and the accommodation surpassed our high expectations."

    All of the furnishings and fittings are high end and the cottage is immaculate. It was probably the nicest accommodation we’ve stayed in for a long time. Very comfortable and in an ideal location for exploring the local area. Rachael and her family were so lovely and our daughter loved seeing the tractors and animals. We are looking forward to returning soon.

  • "Rachel and Jim were extremely hospitable and nothing was too much trouble."

    The Stables were immaculately clean and equipped with everything you could want. Kelk Beck cottages are in a quiet backwater but near to many attractions and the east coast's varied coastline, we were very sorry to leave.

    The grounds are very well kept with plenty of seating areas and easy parking. The cottage is a delightful property with high standard of furniture, equipment and amenities. All rooms are spacious and with being all on one level suited all age groups. It is ideally situated as it is only a short drive to many attractions, villages, towns and beaches. Impressed with communications from Sykes and the owners. Hope to stay again and will definitely be recommending to our friends and family.

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. Further north is the Flamborough Headland Heritage Coast with beautiful clifftop scenery, while a longer drive can bring you to the fascinating town of Scarborough, home to a castle, seaside amusements, and two beaches. For a wonderful holiday in the beautiful East Yorkshire countryside, choose Kelk Beck Cottages.
