Haxby is a village in North Yorkshire, England, just outside York. It means a safe haven, the sort of place that's never going to get too exciting but it's nice to come home to - and then leave again. If you want an adventurous life you wouldn't want to live there, but you'd be glad if your mum/aunt/uncle did because then you could go back and visit when the big wide world gets too scary.
Wow - after being chased by those natives in Papua New Guinea, it was great to reach a real Haxby and get my breath back.

We hadn't exactly found a Haxby, because there were scorpions around, but the oasis made a nice change nevertheless.

He's so dull - he'll never even think to leave his Haxby.
