Blacksmith’s Cottage is a delightful, traditional cottage positioned in an ideal location in the quiet village of Hawsker, just a few miles outside of the hustle and bustle of Whitby but close enough to enjoy a leisurely walk, cycle or a 5 minute drive. Hawsker has a great family run pub that serves excellent home cooked meals and is only 50 yards from the cottage. The cottage was built in the 17th century and was part of the original blacksmith’s workshop that has been converted to a good standard of accommodation for couples and small families, looking to explore this beautiful coastline. The cottage is positioned in the grounds of the owners’ home, and has stunning gardens and pond at the rear with garden furniture, that are shared with Anvil Cottage, which can be booked together to accommodate two small families or a larger family of up to 8 people. A leather sofa bed in the lounge provides additional room for two extra guests.
For those wishing to take a break from driving, a frequent bus service runs to Whitby, Middlesborough, Robin Hood’s Bay and Scarborough. The North York Moors National Park offers something for everyone with varied landscape such as heather clad moorland, sweeping dales and quaint villages, not to mention the beautiful heritage coastline just waiting to be discovered. The area is also ideal for walkers and cyclists with numerous walks and cycle tracks right on your doorstep including a disused railway line only 200 yards from the cottage that runs from Whitby to Scarborough ideal for cyclists of all ages and abilities and there is a cycle hire centre at the edge of the village.

About the local area

Robin Hood’s Bay is only 3 miles away and has an abundance of character and charm with a mix of cobbled, narrow streets and alleyways with individual shops, pubs and tearooms, and a lovely beach where you can enjoy fossil hunting and rock pooling. The beautiful fishing port of Whitby is only 2 miles away and is a great day for all the family, with 3 miles of golden sandy beach, amusements and the kids can ride on a donkey. The tour bus is a great way to get around Whitby and will take you to some interesting sites including the stunning Abbey and St Mary’s Church situated on the cliff top. The yellow boats that leave the harbour regularly are a great way to appreciate the beauty of Whitby from the sea and are an experience not to forget.
