Robin Hood's Bay Cottages

Just show me Robin Hood's Bay Cottages

For picturesque coastal surroundings, things don't come much better than a Robin Hood's Bay holiday cottage.

Robin Hood's Bay is a delightful fishing village hugging the rocky shores of the Heritage Coast. It's one of the most popular spots in the North York Moors National Park and features a huddle of coloured cottages with red-tiled roofs tumbling down to the sea.

Explore its hidden backwaters and teeny cobbled streets, once frequented by smugglers and today crammed with delightful eateries, olde-worlde pubs, attractive shops and stylish galleries. Watch local fishermen bringing in their catch and savour fish 'n chips out of paper - locals reckon they're the best for miles around!

At low tide, have fun on the award-winning sandy beach and enjoy a family fossil hunt, with lots of rock pools and fascinating marine-life to be found. The local Geology Trust also offers guided fossil walks and talks etc, and you can learn more about the Bay's natural landscape at the Old Coastguard Station, a visitor and education centre owned by the National Trust.

Stretch those legs and enjoy a section of the Cleveland Way National Trail, or admire the views from horse back with a hack along the coast. Don't miss the local museum, showcasing a replica of a smuggler's house, or Old St. Stephen's Church - austere from the outside but beautifully adorned inside with an exquisite three-decker pulpit. And when you fancy a day trip, the historic resort of Whitby lies just six miles up the coast.

All in all, a Robin Hood's Bay cottage holiday offers something for everyone. Enjoy!
