    “We have just returned from a weekend in this converted railway carriage.”

    The location was great, only a short drive to both Whitby centre and also Robins Hood Bay. There is a Sainsburys only a mile away for your shopping, and we spotted an Aldi is in the process of being built. Set back from the road, the carriage was so peaceful! All bedding and towels are provided which makes packing lighter when there are 6 of you! We had trouble with the heating, but 20 minutes after texting Keith, he arrived with heaters to ensure we were comfortable. There are 2 toilets and ...

    The location was great, only a short drive to both Whitby centre and also Robins Hood Bay. There is a Sainsburys only a mile away for your shopping, and we spotted an Aldi is in the process of being built. Set back from the road, the carriage was so peaceful! All bedding and towels are provided which makes packing lighter when there are 6 of you! We had trouble with the heating, but 20 minutes after texting Keith, he arrived with heaters to ensure we were comfortable. There are 2 toilets and showers. We were pleased with the temperature and pressure in the shower. Our group consisted of "dad" who is the train fan, 3 grown up daughters plus 2 of their boyfriends. We are used to staying in caravans when we have weekends away, so this was a step up for us. All in all, we loved our stay here and would recommend, it was a fantastic family getaway. Thank you Keith!

About the location

HAWSKER

Whitby 2.5 miles; Robin Hood's Bay 2.5 miles; Scarborough 17 miles.

The pretty village of Hawsker is situated half way between Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay, just two and a half miles from each, making it an ideal base from which to explore the area.

Cottages and farms complete this pleasant village, with a local pub serving food, a tea room, a village hall, primary school and children's playground.

Set on the National Cycle Network and the Whitby/Scarborough Railtrail (Cinder Trail), Hawsker provides a great base for walkers, cyclists and lovers of the outdoors.

The superb coastline in this beautiful part of Yorkshire, and the spectacular North York Moors are well worth exploring, as is the fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay and the ancient 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 a great selection of unique and independent shops..

The bunk beds are suitable for adults or children
