Everything was perfect. From the amazing location, to the wonderful owners and accommodation. No request was too big and we were made to feel very much at home. The walking routes are literally on the front door with many beautiful sights to see. We really couldn't fault the place.
I have stayed here bi yearly for some time now. Its a wonderful setting to 'get away from it all'. It is clean, comfortable and well presented with a real fire which really give the homely feel. The area the cottage is set in is really beautiful and there are many walks straight from the front door. Great local pub too!! The owners,Jean and Mal, are so welcoming and lovely people. Also very knowledgeable. I always look forward to staying here. See you soon. Sarah
We had high hopes for Beck Cottage, as it was the second most expensive of 10 holiday homes we booked on this trip overseas. The location is stunning, and a number of very good walks begin from the back door. It is also certainly cosy on a cold night with the curtains shut and the fire going. However, while there is evidence that this was once a great place to stay, it has sadly been neglected - inside and outside. As an example, the phone and books for visitors' use in an adjacent barn are covered with poo from the birds nesting overhead. The baking dishes and frying pan were rusty and the cupboards smelt so musty that we kept them open as much as possible. The water has been deemed by a local authority as unsafe to drink, and while some bottled water was provided, it is a nuisance when preparing food and brushing teeth, and prospective guests should be advised of this in advance. The owners were very understanding and tolerant when we lost track of the date and returned late from a walk when we should have checked out 5 hours earlier!
good area to explore north Yorkshire moors a wonderful base. owners very friendly, very clean accommodation, and a real log fire if required, also a small welcome pack which makes you feel very welcome. cannot recommend enough
