This semi-detached cottage near Hawsker, close to Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay, can sleep two people in one bedroom.

The Hayshed is a semi-detached stone cottage a short drive from Hawsker on the North Yorkshire coastline. The cottage sleeps two people and has one double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. There is also an open plan living area with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area with a woodburning stove. Outside is off road parking and a meadow garden with outdoor furniture. Just short drives to the coastal towns of Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay make The Hayshed a fabulous base for exploring this beautiful area.


We had a fantastic stay at the Hayshed. Centrally located, a great base to start out from. Just a few miles drive into Whitby (or walk across the cliff tops) but far out enough to be considered rural. The cottage was lovely, clean, full of character and very welcoming. The decor was a little quirky but very much in keeping with the surroundings, it worked well and we loved it. The owners had thought of everything you might need during your stay. Plenty of cutlery & crockery and plenty of towels, including ones to wipe down the dog (we had brought our own but a nice touch all the same). The bedroom was also fab and the bed was very comfortable. The information pack was detailed and easily understood and even included a parking permit to save some of those expensive charges. The bonus of decent Broadband Wi-Fi was great, we played our music through the bluetooth speaker in the bedroom. All in all, we loved it, will definitely stay again and would highly recommend it to others wanting to stay in the area.

Ideal location for exploring that coastline. Lovely view from cottage, compact accommodation, satisfied our needs.
Mrs Gooding

A lovely setting with good views, it was quirky and unusual which we like and comfortable and cosy.
Mrs Wiles

It was fun to stay in a cottage with a slight quirky angle! It was perfect for two and a dog and was situated within easy reach of Whitby which has some marvellous beaches and eateries.
