Robin Hoods Bay
Robin Hoods Bay is within the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, the village dates back to the days of smugglers and fishing folk, its cobbled streets and pretty painted cottages nestle into the cliffs surrounded by some of the most beautiful coastline in the country.

The beach, of sand and rocks, has been regularly awarded the ENCAMS Seaside Award and will be flying the distinctive blue and yellow flag if appropriate.

The bay is one of the most appealing unspoilt villages on the East Coast. With excellent scenic coastal walks and cycle rides, The Coast to Coast walk finishes at the slipway at the Bay.

The village has several friendly shops, fish and chip shop, cafes, pubs (most serve meals and real ale) and Bistro which help make it an all year round pleasure.
