    “A lovely little cottage in a perfect spot with lots to see and do close by.”

    Very rustic, imaginative and quirky but comfortable and with everything you need. The steps up to the second bedroom are interesting and aren’t for the faint hearted but do fit the style of the interior. The owners, who live on site, are friendly, helpful but discreet and want to do their best to help you enjoy your holiday. The honesty shop is a great idea too. The main road does run alongside and whilst it can be noisy through the day, was not an issue at night. We had a brilliant week ...

    Very rustic, imaginative and quirky but comfortable and with everything you need. The steps up to the second bedroom are interesting and aren’t for the faint hearted but do fit the style of the interior. The owners, who live on site, are friendly, helpful but discreet and want to do their best to help you enjoy your holiday. The honesty shop is a great idea too. The main road does run alongside and whilst it can be noisy through the day, was not an issue at night. We had a brilliant week exploring the area with our dog and wouldn’t hesitate to book The Cowshed again. The only downside was that there was no secured area outside for the dog so she had to stay on the lead even when nipping for a quick wee and also meant the outside door couldn’t be left open. Having said that there is a nice big field for an early morning stroll and an older, more reliable dog may not need such boundaries.

An enchanting, detached stone cottage set in the owners’ grounds with panoramic sea views, close to the small village of Hawsker, and just three miles from both Robin Hood's Bay and Whitby.

Oozing charm and character, this delightful Hawsker cottage is ideally placed for exploring the stunning countryside of the North York Moors National Park, and the spectacular heritage coastline.

Originally an old barn, this cottage near Whitby has been sympathetically restored to the highest of standards, retaining a beamed pitched roof, exposed stonework, and oak floors.

The rooms are beautifully presented, with an open plan living area incorporating a modern, well-equipped kitchen and a snug sitting area with a cosy woodburning stove, creating a warm and welcoming ambience.

The slightly quirky bathroom in this Hawsker cottage has a luxurious, freestanding stone bath, perfect for a long, relaxing soak after a hard day's sightseeing, and the two pretty bedrooms offer comfortable and quality beds.

Outside, this cottage near Whitby has a private rear patio with a fire pit and a barbecue, enabling guests to sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the lovely views towards the sea and Abbey, and watch the sun go down.
