This cottage is a delightful, single storey semi-detached stone property offering a peaceful retreat for two people.

A charming, single storey semi-detached cottage next to the owner’s house in the peaceful village of Littlebeck, this picturesque cottage offers a serene haven full of character, with simple but tasteful accommodation all on the ground floor. The compact kitchen is well equipped and there is a spacious en-suite double bedroom with beams, creating a restful atmosphere to unwind in at the end of a day’s activities. The sitting room with its beamed ceiling is a relaxing, warm and inviting room. The cottage garden is a delight and visitors can while away happy hours listening to the beck as it gently babbles past the cottage. The property is a romantic hideaway and a fabulous base to discover all that this beautiful region has to offer.


Throstle Nest is situated in an idyllic spot close to a picturesque beck. The lovely cottage was well equipped and scrupulously clean. We received a warm and friendly welcome from the owners. Additionally, they thoughtfully provided a bird feeder just outside the kitchen window and seemed to have included everything that might be needed to ensure the perfect holiday. Littlebeck is well situated in a beautiful part of Yorkshire, just outside Whitby, and we found plenty to do and see.
