About the location
Whitby 2.5 miles; Robin Hood’s Bay 2.5 miles; Scarborough 17 miles.
The small village of Hawsker is situated half way between Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay, just two and a half miles from each, an ideal location from which to explore the area. The surrounding cottages and farms make up this pleasant village, with a local pub serving food, a tearoom, a village hall, primary school and children's playground. Close to the Cleveland Way and the former railway line, Hawsker provides a great base for walkers and cyclists. The superb coastline in this beautiful part of Yorkshire, and the spectacular North York Moors are well worth exploring, as is the ancient fishing port of Whitby. With its winding streets and hidden alleys, Whitby is a charming atmospheric town with a picturesque harbour, long, sandy beaches and the famous Abbey, reached by the 199 steps! Taste the freshly caught fish and chips, take a trip on a local boat or browse the individual shops. A fantastic location for exploring, Hawsker is ideal all year round.
