The property

The Chicken Shed is a delightful alternative to camping for those who want the full outdoors experience.

This property, situated on Manor Farm House in Whitby, is right in the heart of North York Moors National Park.

This reclaimed woodwork and timber, set up as an all in one accommodation, goes a long way to providing earth friendly living.

You can sit out on the veranda and enjoy spectacular views of rolling pastures and vivid coast line, stretching far into the distance or relax on the fold away sofa/bed with the doors open and absorb the rural atmosphere, cuddled up with a loved one.

The sitting room, which becomes the bedroom, has a fold away table and shutters on the windows, ensuring a simple transition between day and night, and leads through to the en-suite shower room complete with basin and WC, a real space saver.

The kitchen unit is out on the veranda with a wash up sink just inside.

You simply can’t escape nature here in this rustic, unique living space.

For things to do, you can head into the town and explore the many attractions, from the mining museum and open top bus tour to coastal cruises and surf school, not to mention the fascinating walking trails in the famous historic port of Whitby.

Spend some time in the National Park where history and nature combine to give an amazing vibrant landscape, an inspiring place to visit.

Discover towering cliffs, rocky shores and sandy beaches whilst the chicken shed waits to give you a warm welcome home.

About the location


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!
