Robin Hood's Bay
Visiting Robin Hood's Bay | From our Whitby Guest House
Robin Hood's Bay is one of the most charming and popular coastal villages in the North York Moors.
The pretty coloured cottages with their red till roofs are huddled around a slipway at the foot of a steep ravine. Packed with secret passages and alleyways, it is easy to imagine the days when smugglers would slip their contraband up the hill under the cover of darkness.
At low tide the characteristic rocky scars of the Peak Fault are visible just off the beach. It's a great place for fossil hunting and the rockpools left by the tide contain a myriad of fascinating marine life.
There is a good selection of shops and places to eat in amongst the houses and the village is a great place to walk a section of the Cleveland Way National Trail.
