Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Robin Hood's Bay

Robin Hood’s Bay is a fishing village on a wild stretch of the North Yorkshire coast within the North York Moors National Park. The village marks the eastern end of Alfred Wainwright’s renowned 190-mile Coast to Coast walk and is a stop on the Cleveland Way. Its cobbled streets were used by smugglers, who brought tea, gin and tobacco ashore in the 18th century. Today, self-catering holidays in Robin Hood’s Bay are popular among visitors who want to hike on the moors and coast, discover secluded beaches and enjoy days out at the classic resorts of Scarborough and Whitby.

Follow one of the steep paths towards the sea from your holiday cottage in Robin Hood’s Bay, and you will discover a stunning beach with vast stretches of sand, and rock pools, where you can hunt for crabs at low tide. Take a refreshing swim in the sea, build a sandcastle or hunt for ancient fossils along the shore.
