    “We spent a week during October on the train with our 4 and 2 year olds.”

    The train was absolutely fantastic - it was so exciting just to be in the space that we had lots of fun just hanging out and playing in the garden. Each room (compartment) is decorated with really thoughtful touches. Keith was a wonderful host - super helpful and adept at fitting up families for cycle trips along the Cinder Train cycle path. It’s a great location - 10 mins drive to Whitby, 5 mins to shops. We would heartily recommend Keith and the train for a holiday and hope to come back ...

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.
