Grange Farm is in the village of High Hawsker, which is situated in between Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay, 2.5 miles from each, and is ideally situated to explore the area. A drink and a meal can be enjoyed in the Hare & Hounds Inn, which is about 50 yards from the house; there is also a games-room that can be used by the whole family. The village hall, which is situated about 100 yards from the property, has a playground.
Historic Whitby with its beautiful harbor 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. What you cannot 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.
Other places, which are certainly worth a visit are, Robin Hood's Bay, Runswick Bay, Scarborough, Danby Moors Center, Falling Foss 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 footpath and bridleways. A cycle hire center is just a short walk from the house. Other activities within a 5 miles radius are Rowing, Canoeing, Swimming, Golfing and Riding.
Whatever your interests, there will be something for you.
