The Hideaway is a delightful, semi-detached, cosy cottage tucked away in a tranquil, secluded area within the quiet village of Hawsker. The cottage has undergone major renovation that has been completed to a very good standard, with tasteful décor and furnishings throughout. There is an enclosed private garden area outside that is perfect for your dog to run around in while you relax and enjoy a glass of wine. There’s also a barbecue area for making the most of the warm weather with eating out al-fresco style. An outdoor sofa and seating area complete this private garden.

Secluded yet surprisingly close to town, the seaside resort of Whitby is just a few miles away, easily accessible by car or on foot. The town is home to a jam-packed calendar of events which take place all year round, and you can take a tour bus to see the fascinating sites, which include the stunning Abbey and St Mary’s Church high above the cliffs. There are also regular boat cruises that offer a different aspect of the beautiful town from the water. A day trip to Robin Hood’s Bay is a must during your stay at The Hideaway. Just 3 miles away, the bay is full of character and charm, thanks to its cobbled, narrow streets and alleyways lined with an ecleclic mix of individually-run shops, pubs and tearooms, all set before a lovely beach that’s ideal for rock pooling and fossil hunting.

A little closer to home, Hawsker has a warm and cosy local pub that serves local food, and for the outdoorsy types, there’s a disused railway line only a few hundred yards away that stretches some 21 miles from Whitby to Scarborough.

The North York Moors National Park lies just inland from the North Yorkshire coastal resorts of Whitby and Scarborough, with over 1,400 miles of trails, footpaths and bridleways that cobweb the rolling heather-clad moorland and meet in the pretty rural villages and historic country towns. Carving a pathway deep through the North York Moors is the famous North York Moors Steam Railway, which carries its passengers from Pickering in the south northward to Grosmont, and then along the lovely Esk Valley to Whitby on the coast. A little further afield are the rolling hills and picture-perfect river valleys of the Yorkshire Dales. Beach 2 miles. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 500 yards.


There is a BBQ and garden furniture in the garden. One well behaved dog is welcome. Private parking is available for one car

“A fantastic location to explore Whitby and the surrounding area. Easy access to the Cinder Track and to The Cleveland Way. Broxa and Dalby forests are nearby for walks away from the coast. The Hideaway itself is very cosy, spotlessly clean and your hosts are very helpful and friendly. The thoughtful welcome pack including treats for the dog was a lovely touch. I had a great holiday.”

“This is a beautiful, unusual little cottage full of character and in a surprisingly peaceful location. It is well stocked, comfortable, and even offers some thoughtful welcome gifts. The proprietor is friendly and helpful, parking space right outside the door, private fenced off garden with furniture perfect if you have a dog. Nestled just outside Whitby, it is just a few miles drive from civilisation and the coast. For us and our needs it was perfect.”

“We've had lovely few days in The Hideaway. Great location for exploring the North Yorkshire coast as well as the Moors. Monty is our 9 month old cockapoo and he had a marvellous time on his first holiday. Digging sandcastles, playing in the sea and enjoying his first train ride on the North Yorks Moors Railway. The Hideaway is perfect with the secure courtyard and cosy accommodation making it safe and dog friendly. Owners couldn't have been more helpful hope to return to this fabulous spot in the future.”

“The cottage is lovely small but very well designed with everything you need for a short stay. The welcome basket with dog treats was a very nice touch.The owner was very friendly and helpful.The location is quiet and only a short walk from the local pub and a slightly longer walk to the pub in the next village. There is no shop or other amenities in the village but there is a retail park with a Sainsburys and other shops about 2 miles down the road. Whitby is around 4 miles away.Overall, we had a lovely time in the cottage and would definitely book again if visiting the area.”

“Lovely cottage. They have everything you need to hand. Lovely secure garden for the dog. Owners live very close by and we're at hand if anything was needed. On arrival we received some essentials from them milk wine and cake and treats for the dog. Due to location however no local shops but if you have no car there is a bus service however we found these to be few and far between and a couple of times resorted to a taxi into whitby or back usually around £9.00. We did walk into whitby on occasion however this is approximately 7.5miles over the tops so if you're not great at walking stick to the roads however the scenery is beautiful on a nice day. We struck lucky with the weather for November but wouldn't recommend that walk in the winter for novices as it does get quite boggy in places.Overall a lovely cottage and would not hesitate to return in the future.”

“A lovely small place to stay for a short break. very clever conversion of an old cattle barn, all amenities good. Only one downside, the bath water runs so slowly would have to wait about an hour to fill it. That being said a brilliant accomodation.”

“Very clean everything you needs there and good pub not far”

“Excellent holiday if you want to hideaway from everyone and have a quiet holiday and rest then this is the place to go. But if you want to go to Whitby then it is only a short drive away or a nice walk on a sunny day, enjoyable week.”
— Stephen, 16 August 2021
“This is a fantastic little place and we spent 5 lovely days here. With just enough room for 2 and a dog, its all open plan, which might not suit some. Anyone over about 59 might struggle a bit, particularly in the shower. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped, and the welcome pack was a very nice touch.Really lovely outdoor area, fully enclosed and safe for dogs.Its in an excellent location very close to Whitby and Robbin Hoods Bay and only a 5 minute walk from the Cinder Track & Cleveland Way.”

“What a great place to stay and ideal base to explore the local area. We had a wonderful 60th birthday week. Many, many thanks to Rachel and Nigel”

“Stayed at the Hideaway for a four night stay at begining of July and could not find a fault with it. It's located between Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay, it's a five minute walk to bus stops going both ways and a further five minute walk to the local pub which does excellent food, highly recommended. The cottage is perfect for a couple and has everytghing you need. The owners left us a nice treat of a bottle of wine and a box of chocolates. We liked it that much that we are booking again for next year.”
