The village of High Hawsker is located roughly half-way between the seaside town of Whitby and the coastal village of Robin Hood’s Bay. In High Hawsker, you’ll find easy access to the Cinder Track walking and cycling path which runs from Whitby all the way through to Scarborough via Robin Hood’s Bay.

The popular Hare & Hounds pub can be found just a few doors down from Atlanta Cottage. Head here to enjoy a good pint or a delicious meal.

In Whitby you’ll be able to revel in the nostalgic seaside charm - head to the arcades or explore the beautiful, blue flag West Cliff Beach which is lined with idyllic beach huts.

Venture over the swing bridge and you’ll reach the East bank. This side of Whitby is full of narrow, medieval streets dotted with boutiques, pubs and fish restaurants. Climb the famous 199 steps up to the Church of Saint Mary. You can also discover the renowned ruined Whitby Abbey, which was the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s gothic novel ‘Dracula’.

Step outside of Whitby and you’ll uncover a haven of woodland and moorland. Whitby forms part of the North York Moors National Park so it’s the perfect place for long walks.

A truly wonderful place for adults and children alike, Robin Hood’s Bay has a beautiful beach full of fossils, cobbled streets full of shops to explore, characterful winding alleyways and a whole host of places to eat and drink, there really is something for everyone.

3 generations stayed here along with our 2 dogs. the oldest, 74, to the youngest, 12. The cottage had plenty of space for us to spread out and a roomy central lounge we could gather in the evenings around the log burner. The dogs loved zooming around the garden and their daily walk along the cinder path which can be accessed easily from the property. Excellent bus service every 30 min - could be in Whitby or Robinhoods Bay in minutes without having to drive and worry about parking. Aldi, Sainsbury and B&M an easy short drive away for convenience. Definitely recommend



A stones throw from both whitby and Robin Hoods Bay. With a fantastic pub two doors down, which serves brilliant food. The property was well equiped and tidy. People should however be made aware of the 'damage deposit' or compulsory insurance that wasn't made clear prior to booking.



This beautiful big house was a great place to host my birthday with 6 people. The dining room and lounge room had a lot of comfy and homey features. We all loved our beds especially the one in the loft with skylight. Lots of stuff provided dishwasher and laundry detergent, coal to burn, plates and beautiful glasses etc. next time I will bring firewood and toilet paper but really the host were so great and helpful. I can't wait to go there again. Nice dinner at the pub 2 doors up and 10 mins drive to Robin Hoods Bay Beach where we had good coffee, lunch and did beach fossicking.



really nice big house only down side there was no safety gates especially with the steep stairs.



We had a great few days at Atlanta cottage, lots of space for the 8 of us, nice big garden, great living room, comfy beds and a great location for exploring Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay which were both stunning. <br/>There was some maintenance issues with the cottage which wasn’t ideal including a metal hinge sticking out on the toilet seat which I had asked to be fixed due to it having the potential to cause injury to the children but unfortunately it wasn’t. The kitchen could have been cleaner, we had to rewash the crockery and dishes to use them and the dishwasher drawer did not have runners so was awkward to use. The communication with the host was good but unfortunately they still weren’t able to resolve our issues that were highlighted during our stay. Overall we had a great time as a family and would still recommend Atlanta Cottage for the size and location.



Really nice accommodation, lovely surroundings and really nice walks down to Whitby. Very spacious as well.



We loved our stay at Atlanta Cottage! Great spot for walks and it was so nice to have relaxed cosy time by the fire in the spacious lounge. The listing here describes quite a lot more beds in each room than there were so most of our guests were sharing beds when we had expected not to need to. But this wasn’t a big problem and overall we loved it! Would recommend bringing a couple of chopping boards if you intend to cook while you’re there. Very close to Aldi and Sainsbury’s for food shops!



Lovely home. Will definitely book again. Cosy cottage good location to Whitby and robin Hood’s bay. And a fab pub literally around the corner



Beautiful property, a few furnishings a bit old and showing signs of disrepair, but all in working order. There were 9 of us and we had plenty of room - lovely pub next door. Easy to walk to Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay along the cinder track.



Position to coast. Plenty of good walking in the area.<br/>No Parking. No downstairs toilet. Very creaky beds very low ceilings and light fittings. Rug in on suite bedroom dangerous needs removing and replacing as corner turned up. Stairs steep and loft stairs extremely steep even for young people.



Atlanta cottage is lovely we would stay here again it has a lovely feel. The kitchen could do with an update as the fridge was tiny and too small for a 9 person 4 night stay at Christmas there is enough room for a full fridge and I would suggest this is done and addition of blinds to the kitchen would make it more private as the window is roadside.<br/>A frosted window pane to ensuite would make going to the loo more private also as the gap there, means you can be seen by the neighbours across the road. All in all a beautiful character cottage which with a few tweaks could be perfect.



The house was everything we needed for the weekend. Big, comfortable bedrooms and living room. Garden for the dogs to enjoy and a wood burner for us to stay cosy.<br/>Kitchen wasn’t as well equipped as I usually find with Airbnb. No basics (salt/oil/tea) except a few coffee pods and could use a few more utensils etc if cooking for a large group. <br/>Overall good value for money.



Unlike so many other AirBNB stays, this felt very commercially orientated. <br/>Late check-ins (after 4) early checkouts (by 10am), no flexibility. Nothing whatsoever in the way of a welcome pack, one dishwasher tablet… everyone in the party commented on it being a bit stingy.<br/>The property management team were very responsive and we quite liked the location, and the pub two doors down, but I’m not sure we would choose this property again. <br/>It just felt a little bit unloved.



Comfortable and cosy feel<br/>Heating was hit and miss



Had a lovely weekend away here with friends. Plenty on room for us all & our 4 dogs , you had the best time. Secure safe garden. Fabulous pub next door , highly recommend as food was delicious & reasonably priced. Fell in love with Robin Hoods bay with was a matter of minutes away from the house by car. Parking on the street , directly out front of the house never any issues finding a parking spot. No noise from road or pub. Comfy property, child & dog friendly. Location was perfect for us to explore Robin Hoods Bay , Whitby & Scarborough.



Beautifully decorated and really comfy and unique bedrooms



excellent cottage exactly like the pictures. Mattresses possibly ready for replacement also fridge and freezer but otherwise really good. location ideal for bus into Scarborough or whitby



A lovely break with the family. Great accommodation. The Hare and Hounds serve delicious food and so close! We enjoyed a BBQ in the lovely garden too. We will definitely be recommending Atlanta cottage and visiting again.






Perfect location between Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay for a long weekend away. Property was generally good but a few things not so good - family bathroom shower door was hanging by one wheel, could have very easily fallen onto someone; smoke alarm batteries low so kept us awake one night beeping, seemed this was already known as was just lying on mantle rather than on its ceiling attachment. But, it was cheaper than most properties so guess you get what you pay for. Listing said there was no wifi but property did have wifi
