  • "Had an absolutely fantastic holiday."

    The accommodation was perfect for our first holiday with our new puppy. I would highly recommend the cottage for anyone looking for an idyllic peaceful location within easy walking distance of Hawsker, and the dog friendly village pub, The Hare and Hounds. The walk to Whitby on the cinder trail, in the morning sunshine, has left us with very fond memories of this stunning location.

About the location


Whitby 6 miles; Scarborough 17 miles.

Robin Hood's Bay, with its narrow cobbled streets and quaint cottages, is one of the most picturesque villages on the English coastline. Situated between Scarborough and Whitby, this charming old fishing village is to be found nestling at the edge of a wide sweeping bay backed by spectacular cliffs and dramatic moorland scenery, and was once home to author Leo Walmsley. All holidaymakers will love the beach and its cliff-top walks, whilst more serious walkers will enjoy the many long distance trails that pass through the Cleveland Way, the Lyke Wake Walk and the Coast to Coast walks which all take in Robin Hood’s Bay. The village amenities are superb, with charming alleyways to explore and plenty of places to rest, relax and take refreshment. A perfect base for enjoying the Yorkshire Coast.
