The Yorkshire region
The area around the holiday cottage is a mixture of Coast & Moors. There are many coastal villages that are worth a visit, and a walk along the cliffs is a must..
We are located in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, this beautiful area is a unique landscape which changes with each season. During the winter a white landscape is a pleasure to see and when the heather is in bloom in the summer, the scenery is simply breathtaking. Again there are many villages worth a visit all over the moors.
The village of High Hawsker is situated in between Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay, two and a half miles from each, and is ideally situated to explore the area. The village has a pleasant atmosphere, and the locals are very friendly people. A drink and a meal can be enjoyed in the Hare & Hounds Inn, which is about 50 yards from the house. The village hall which is situated about 100 yards from the property, has a playground.
Historic Whitby with its beautiful harbour and little alleys and streets is one of the most atmospheric towns in the area. The town is built on the mouth of the river Esk, the only salmon river in Yorkshire, and has strong connections with Captain Cook, Dracula, and the photographer Frank Meadow Sutcliffe. Whitby is also famous for its jet (a semi-precious stone, which is a pure and hard form of fossilised wood of the monkey puzzle tree). Jet has been collected and used in jewellery for thousands of years, but it really became fashionable in the Victorian area. Queen Victoria herself used jet mourning jewellery, which contributed to a greater public demand for this type of jewellery. Today there are still a few jet workshops in town and jet jewellery can be bought in several shops in Whitby.
Visitors to Whitby will find that it is a place they want to come back to. What you can not miss on your visit to Whitby is Whitby Abbey, which is a magnificent site on your entry into the area. If you like museums you will enjoy a visit to one of Whitby's many museums. Among others, the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, the Whitby Museum (a treasure throve of Whitby's past), and the lifeboat museum. Whitby also has a number of Galleries, which are worth a visit.
Other places to visit and things to do
Other places, which are certainly worth a visit are, Robin Hoods Bay, Runswick Bay, Scarborough, Danby Moors Centre, Falling Foss - a 30ft (9 meter) waterfall, Grosmont from which the steam train to Pickering runs, etc. etc.
The area around High Hawsker is ideal for cycling or walking. There are many public footpaths and bridleways. A cycle hire centre is just a short walk from Grange Farm.
Other activities within a 5 miles radius are Rowing, Canoeing, Swimming, Golfing, Riding, Fishing.

"Grange Farm Cottage was an excellent place to celebrate my 7Oth Birthday."
We very much enjoyed our stay at Grange Farm. The house is so spacious and warm and comfortable, and it was an ideal place for my family and friends to stay and help me celebrate my 70th birthday. Whitby is such a magical place and holds many happy memories, and this last holiday was no exception. Grange Farm is very well equipped and we lacked nothing, and is ideally placed for access to many lovely walks, including the Cleveland Way. I would certainly recommend it to anyone.
