A Trip to Robin Hood's Bay, North Yorkshire


Growing up, I was very fortunate to spend most weekends of my childhood sailing around the coast of the UK. I love hearing the gushing sound of the waves, the smell of seaweed and sea salt and hearing all the sea birds gleefully chirping and because of all my favourite childhood memories, I'm always happiest when I'm by the coast. Last weekend when the sun was bright and the weather for once was on our side, my husband and I decided to take a road trip to North Yorkshire and called at one of my favourite coastal haunts, Robin Hood's Bay.


Robin Hood's Bay is a small fishing village nestled between two Whitby and Scarborough on North Yorkshire coastline. It is a quaint little village steeped in history from pirate smuggling to where dinosaurs roamed and it has the most beautiful little buildings and cobbled streets, full of independent boutiques. 

To access Robin Hood's Bay you need to park at the top of the hill and it is quite a steep descent down the road, accessed via stairs or the roadside, but the views are breathtaking and from the top of the hill you can see the bay in all of its glory. On the way down the hill there's a plethora of boutiques from chocolates to interior shops and all little shops selling all the usual tourist fare as well as a dinosaur and fossil museum. There's also several little restaurants, many of which serve seafood caught fresh from the bay.


Once you get to the bottom of the hill, there's a slip way leading straight on to the beach and into the sea and neighbouring pubs so that you can sit back, have a drink and admire the scenery. The view on a day where this is good visibility is beautiful and with it not being as busy as places like Scarborough or Whitby, it is a place you can genuinely feel relaxed.  Robin Hood's Bay is a hidden gem along the North East coast and if you ever have the opportunity to visit, I would definitely pop by.

Have you been to Robin Hood's Bay?
