This detached, stone built cottage near Hawsker, close to Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay, can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

The Cowshed, a delightful, detached stone cottage a short drive from Hawsker on the North Yorkshire coastline, can sleep four people in two bedrooms. The cottage offers two bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor, and each with the option of being a king-size double or a twin room. There is also a ground floor bathroom with a freestanding stone bath, a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a woodburning stove. Outside, the patio enjoys views of the surrounding countryside to the sea, furniture, a fire pit and a barbecue, a wonderful spot to spend warm summer evenings. There is also off road parking for one car, and a short drive down to the coastal towns of Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay make The Cowshed a fabulous base for exploring this beautiful area.


Great base for North Yorkshire Moors and coast
Super little cottage just outside Whitby. Not big but well equipped and very comfortable. Lovely field next to the cottage for the dog to run around in. Although next to the main road (A171) traffic noise was not an problem at all. We had a lovely, relaxing week.

fantastic family holiday
The Cowshed is an enchanting little barn conversion, which has been lovingly done with great imagination and style. Inside,it is like Heidi's little cabin in the mountains. The cottage is spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. The owners have used the available space very carefully and it is very well designed. Great base to visit the coast including Whitby, Scarborough, Filey, Robin Hood's Bay, Sandsend. All lovely places within easy reach. But when the hustle and bustle of these places becomes too much, the Cowshed offers a little retreat. We found ourselves eager to get back, get the kettle on and settle down for a relaxing evening. Great outside area with a bench and a little table, with amazing views over to the sea and the ruins of Whitby abbey, surrounded by farm land. Very comfortable beds, the second bedroom is like a little den up in the eaves, Great for kids. Some very unusual features including the bath which is like a stone trough, and lots of references to its former life as a barn(much of the d?cor is apparently made from salvaged items found on the land). Lovely place to stay, we returned with some very happy memories. A little haven of peace.

A true gem! Fantastic quirky d?cor, high quality accommodation and a great location for exploring Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and further afield. It is rare to find such a unique, quality, dog friendly place.

Amazing place to stay!
My partner and our two little dogs stayed at the Cowshed for a week in February. We arrived late at night to find a beautiful and quirky little cottage, log stove (with enough fuel to warm us up that evening), a hospitality tray and even slippers and dressing gowns! We felt so welcome! Our dogs loved the area, with a large field to run around in and some very friendly chickens and horses. You feel like it's very remote and peaceful but actually you're so close to Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and a local supermarket, a perfect combination. Luxurious and rustic - we will definitely be staying again :)

Wonderful quirky cottage
My sister and I have just returned from 3 night stay in this wonderful cottage. Although small, it was packed with everything we could possibly need, including a washing machine and dishwasher. It was cosy and warm, with comfortable beds and sofa .... just what we needed after a days walking with the dogs. The beds had crisp, brilliant white bedding and everything was very clean. Helen and Mark, the owners, were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating, going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. We could definitely recommend a stay here and we hope to pay another visit before too long.
