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.


It was lovely; relaxing, remote and quiet. The hosts were very friendly. We could come and go as we wanted.
Mr Harrison

If your looking for a relaxing peaceful holiday then look no further. Throstle Nest Cottage has it all, from the beautiful surroundings, fantastic gardens, birdsong and the sound of the beck running we could have stayed forever. And that's just the outside. The cottage caters for your every need with a small but perfect kitchen that has everything you could need to cook a 5* meal. A snug lounge and large bedroom leads into the bathroom which has further little items should you forget to take shampoo or shower gel Every thought has been given to ensure that you have a stress free holiday. Many thanks to Alison and George for the added extras of scones with butter and jam, milk, tea, coffee and chocolates on arrival, they were very much appreciated. Without doubt we will be back again for another holiday soon. This is the third time we have visited the cottage and the standard stays the same. Elaine & John Hayward West Yorkshire.
Mrs Hayward

A restful and quiet location with friendly and helpful hosts who were available if needed but did not intrude. A beautiful Cottage and garden with so many birds to see. Access to places we wanted to visit was easy too.
Mr Lee

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.
Mr Pyne

A lovely cottage, very clean.
