One of the most famous walks in the UK, Wainwright’s Coast-to-Coast walk finishes in Robin Hood’s Bay and the village also lies on the Cleveland Way footpath as well as many local circular walks, the village lends itself as the perfect village bolthole for a walking holiday exploring some of the best walks in the country.
North Yorkshire Coast
Robin Hood’s Bay
Robin Hood’s Bay is a much-loved gravity-defying picture-postcard village. Once home to the smuggling trade on the Yorkshire coast, said to involve fisherman, clergy and gentry alike, today the village has adopted a much more sedate pace of life.
There are also several pubs in the village with great pub grub. If you want to dine in, take advantage of the well-stocked local stores there, including a fishmongers selling locally caught fish. There are independent shops and cafes dotted around the village and not forgetting the dinosaur museum!
If you fancy a weekend of folk music how about matching up your date with the Robin Hood’s Bay annual Folk Weekend in June, head to folkclub.rhbay.co.uk for more information. A popular gathering for Folk music enthusiasts celebrating the area’s rich heritage.
