Town: The tiny village of Lastingham is a quiet haven on the edge of the North York Moors with beautiful countryside all around it. The best known building in the village is the Crypt Church of St Mary with its ancient crypt. St Cedd founded a monastery in Lastingham in the 7th Century, but it was destroyed by the Danes in the 9th Century.

The cottage is clean, nicely decorated and well-equipped. I have fond memories of morning coffee sitting on the bench overlooking the stream listening to birdsong. The cottage is in a superb location with moorland walks on the doorstep and a friendly village pub serving fine food.

The perfect 'get away from it all' cottage
Left on 01/12/2012 for a stay in November 2011 | Mr. and Mrs. Booth
From the moment we were welcomed by the owner to the moment we left this was the perfect get away from it all break.
The cottage was very cosy for a winter break, we could also see it as ideal for those warmer evenings, sitting outside by the beck.
Although Lastingham is in a lovely quiet valley the towns of Whitby, Scarborough and Malton are all within easy reach.
Walking on the Moors is accessible from the door-step,wonderful countryside to explore in all seasons as long as you are fully prepared; walking boots,etc. are essential.
We hope to return in the very near future.
Lovely cosy cottage.

I had a wonderful holiday.
The cottage was in a beautiful and quiet spot - it was just a short walk from a top notch pub in what is a very pretty and peaceful village.
The cottage was just the right size for my husband and I and the owner was very friendly and helpful.
We found that the location was ideal as a base for exploring the moors - we found a number of very good walks, including to Rosedale Abbey and Hutton-le-Hole that started from Lastingham.
I would love to go back again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks here and were very disappointed to discover that this property is about to be taken off the books as the owners are planning to reoccupy it.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything we needed was in the property. The surrounding area is great for walking and site seeing. Lovely to get away from it all.
The village is a few miles from the nearest shops so transport is necessary.
Peace and quiet

The cottage was small but nicely appointed in all respects except for the cooking facilities. There was no proper oven and we found the combination microwave difficult to use. [Had we stayed longer we would probably have come to terms with it!]. Location superb. A lovely little village on the edge of the moors. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would use the cottage again.
