Robin Hood’s Bay

Enchanting fishing hamlet Robin Hood’s Bay nestles just South of Whitby on the Yorkshire Coast and offers an idyllic coastal village setting, with a choice of real ale inns, quirky craft shops and some great annual festivals. Offering a wide choice of character accommodation from elegant Victorian guest houses to a huge choice of budget caravan parks, Robin Hood’s Bay is a year round favourite for coastal walking breaks.

The landscapes of Robin Hood’s Bay were an inspiration to the artist Barbara Hepworth who spent holidays here as a child. Beautiful cliff top walking features along the stretch of the Cleveland Way National Trail between Robin Hood’s Bay and Whitby. This is one of England’s treasured Jurassic coastlines, and based in a Robin Hood’s Bay guest house, caravan park and B&B you’re within easy reach of Whitby’s many attractions and a range of outdoor activities and walking opportunities in the North York Moors National Park.

Don’t miss the annual June Folk Festival in Robin Hood’s Bay and enjoy charming craft shopping around the narrow cobbled streets of Robin Hood’s Bay, with many craft shops selling Jet jewellery.

Robin Hood’s Bay has a fine selection of its own attractions including arts and crafts shops, atmospheric real ale inns, fine dining restaurants and a small museum. Stay in Robin Hood’s Bay during the annual free Bay Folk Weekend in mid-June. Browse and book Robin Hood’s Bay accommodation now.
