  • "Had a really fantastic time, and you was really good when our last holiday was cancelled, helping us to find the sheep shed and ensuring that we had a fab holiday like we planned."

  • "Stayed here on my own for a week & had a great time."

    Possibly a bit small for 2 people but it had everything you might need. Only criticism would be lighting in the evening wasn't great for reading but there was a torch provided. Great location for beaches & Whitby.

  • "So disappointed."

    Dingy and dirty accomodation. Stained cushions where we were supposed to sleep and once the bed was down the gas fire ended up under the bed! No electric inside the property (which was not advertised) Free wifi advertised but what is the point when no way of charging devices. Some road noise? Constant road noise as its right next to a busy road. Bird poo all over the outside furniture which cannot be controlled but can be cleaned prior to guest arrival. It had been there a while. Didnt stay an hour..booked elsewhere. No partial refund offered or anything. Disgraceful.

The property

Hawsker 1 mile.

An exceptionally unique and rustic shepherds hut just outside the village of Hawsker on the stunning Yorkshire coastline.

Full of character, the hut is the perfect romantic retreat for couples who wish to explore the dramatic coastline and the superb North York Moors.

With Wonderful sea views the Sheep Shed has been lovingly converted to provide quirky accommodation, with the use of exposed woodwork and delightful little features such as stained glass windows and a copper sink in the open plan living area.

After spending the day exploring, you can relax in front of the woodburner and have a romantic night in.

The sofa unfolds to provide a comfortable double bed to recharge before another busy day.

The kitchen is conveniently located on the veranda, next to the well-maintained gravelled area where you can dine al-fresco and enjoy the warm summer evenings.

A short drive brings you to Robin Hood’s Bay, a charming village of cobbled streets lined with cottages beside the sea.

Explore the hidden coves and take a long walk across the Coast to Coast trail.

A trip to the popular seaside town of Whitby is a must, visit the beautiful sandy beaches, explore the historic harbour and climb the famous 199 steps which lead to Whitby Abbey or simply amble around the narrow ginnels and enjoy the array of independent shops and cafes.
