    “The Cowshed was PERFECT for our dogs!”

    The cottage comfortably fitted in a Great Dane and Doberman, and the field outside with a secure gate was fantastic to let them out to play safely. We couldn't recommend enough for dog owners to stay here. ...

    The cottage comfortably fitted in a Great Dane and Doberman, and the field outside with a secure gate was fantastic to let them out to play safely. We couldn't recommend enough for dog owners to stay here. Very cosy cottage and the fire was a great help during the cold evenings. The stairs up to the 2nd bedroom are a bit tricky but nothing unexpected from the description on the site. The location is amazing. We had a long wall into Robin's hood bay, but in a car this only takes 10 minutes if that.

The property

Hawsker 1 mile.

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.

From this Hawsker cottage, a few minutes’ drive brings you to the ancient fishing village of Robin Hood's Bay, with its steep, winding cobbled streets, lined with quaint cottages tumbling towards the sea.

Explore the rock pools, paddle in the sea, or take an exhilarating cliff top walk along the long distance Coast to Coast trail.

The popular seaside town of Whitby has long, sandy beaches, a beautiful historic harbour and a famous abbey.

Sample the numerous eateries, including the best of fish and chips, or meander around the cobbled market place with its array of interesting independent shops.

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.
