  • "A very clean well equipped cottage in a rural, quiet location, which for us was perfect."

    The park and ride bus terminal located just down the road is a huge benefit, we used it every day. Our thoughts on the outdoor space allocated for visitors, this would benefit from some tlc, just a general tidy up with maybe some flower planters to provide a splash of colour and give the area a more appealing feel. We thoroughly enjoyed our short break at this cottage.

  • "We had a great stay."

    Mark was very welcoming and made sure we knew that he was around if we needed him. The cottage is lovely, very clean with everything you will need and very very comfy beds. Not to mention the view of the stars at night! We will be coming back very soon. If you’re wanting to visit Whitby this cottage is the way to do it!

  • "Instruction books for the appliances need leaving initially in a more prominent place (eg dining table) No instructions provided on how to get the heating working but figured it out (there is a loose/bad connection somewhere in/behind the the programmer)."

    No instructions for TV. Very confusing for someone not used to Sky, but did find out by trial and error. Shower head rail is a disaster - need replacing with the correct size. Very difficult to have a shower without getting water all over the bathroom floor. Needs a rail and a curtain. No wooden or non scratch spoons for stirring, when cooking or serving spoons for dishing up. Double glazed lounge window lower pane is 'blown' and needs replacing. Two clocks, neither worked! Battery replaced in lounge one which I suspect had been stopped for a while as the battery I took out was use by 2021! Kitchen one only fit for the bin. Outside area is untidy and uncared for giving an awful first impression when you arrive, which does not improve as you come and go. Better signage needed on the roadside and on the driveway as to where the property actually is. (There being two driveways very close together.) I feel it would be fair to point out the extreme low headroom in parts of this property in the initial description. I am only 5ft 10ins and found it rather trying in the bedrooms and on the stairs.

  • "A lovely comfortable cottage in a quiet secluded spot but only a few minutes drive from the centre of Whitby."

    Exactly what we needed. Well equipped. The owners were friendly and helpful.

  • "We found the cottage very homely."

    The upholstered dinner chairs and recliners on the sofa made it feel like home. Beds were very comfortable and warm, with views from the roof windows. The kitchen was very well resourced and we made several meals with ease. The shower room was more than adequate. A lovely cottage with lots of character - plenty of tranquility in the country setting. Thanks for very pleasant stay.

  • "The property was beautiful …."

    Seemed in the middle of nowhere in walking distance of a lovely pub further up the lane only about 1/2 a mile. And yet it was a short drive to free parking and a walk into Whitby! Sandsend beach is gorgeous with pub food and a couple of gorgeous cafes one surrounded by glass facing the beach! We loved the cottage and the owners too.

The property

Settled amongst the rural greenery of North Yorkshire, on the outskirts of Whitby, rests this charming stone-built holiday home, Hawthorn Dale Cottage.

Enjoying a characterful interior with exposed wooden beams and boasting far-reaching views towards the historic Whitby Abbey, Hawthorn Dale Cottage makes a wonderful base for a group of three looking to explore this sought-after area.

Stepping inside your new home-from-home, be charmed by the wooden beams that adorn the ceiling of the open-plan living/dining room, providing a snug space to settle down with a warming cup of tea following a day of adventure.

Albeit small in size, the contemporary kitchen is equipped with a range of essential amenities, sure to entice any budding chef to prepare delicious meals that can be enjoyed at the dining table, or amongst the scenic greenery of the garden.

Completing the ground floor of this delightful cottage is a stylish shower room, whilst a double and an intimate single can be found by ascending the stairs to the first floor, with the latter framing far-reaching views towards the historic abbey from its Velux window.

A short walk from your doorstep will bring you to the local pub, The Forge Inn, where you can fuel a day of excursions with a hearty breakfast, or treat your loved ones to an evening of traditional pub grub and a crisp pint of ale in the charming beer garden.

The heart of Whitby is set within easy reach, home to a wealth of must-see sights and attractions, including the fascinating displays of local history at Whitby Museum, the picture-perfect harbour and the iconic 199 steps leading to Whitby Abbey, famed as the inspiration behind Bram Stoker's novel Dracula.

Take advantage of your coastal location and board the Whitby Cliff Lift to reach the pristine sands of Whitby Beach, where vibrant huts line the front, offering a truly idyllic seaside setting, whilst the pint-sized village of Robin Hood's Bay offers a peaceful escape from Whitby's usual hustle and bustle.

For a change of scenery, the North York Moors National Park can be found further inland, stretching miles of towering woodland, rolling hills and vast open moorland waiting to be explored, perfect for those looking to immerse themselves in North Yorkshire's great outdoors.

Make unforgettable memories with a rural retreat to Hawthorn Dale Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
