Sunday Snapshots: Robin Hood’s Bay

Pin It

Tumbling down the Jurassic cliffs five miles south of Whitby, the traditional fishing village of Robin Hood’s Bay has long been a popular day-trip destination in the North East; and for good reason! This bygone settlement boasts a deluge of sense rousing sights and sounds, making it the perfect place to visit on an out-of-bed-early Sunday. Negotiate the steep, winding main street and treat yourself to a trinket in one of the village’s independent speciality stores. Amble out onto the cobbled beach, pooch in tow, to enjoy the fresh North Sea breeze and views of the rugged coastline. Explore the warren of narrow paths that criss-cross the village, recalling the devious comings and goings of smugglers that prospered in the village in the 18th century, before finishing the day with a sumptuous fish supper in the Ye Olde Dolphin pub- can you think of a better reason to give up your lie in on a prized Sunday morning?

If the answer’s no, why not take a look at our Robin Hood’s Bay holiday cottages? With its proximity to the popular towns of Whitby and Scarborough, you can really make the most out of your time on a cottage holiday in North Yorkshire.
