52 Ways to Enjoy Robin Hood's Bay: #2 Have a Paw-fect Dog Friendly Holiday
How many times have you been on holiday and been heartbroken that you have had to leave the furry member of the family at home or worse in the Kennels? You've searched and searched but just can't seem to find the paw-fect pooch paradise. In fact, you've even wondered if such a place really exists? Well we're here to tell you it does.
There's many a dog owner and Robin Hood's Bay lover that know how special this paw-fect paradise is. But for folks not in the know read on because we think you might just be surprised...
Let's start with the pièce de résistance, the show stopper, the Beach. What's so special about this Beach we here you ask? It's not only stunning, don't just take our word for it, see the picture evidence to prove it but it is always changing. No two days on Bay Beach are ever the same. You could say it's like a doggy adventure park, there's boulders to jump on, seaweed to roll in, sand to dig and pebbles to chase. We know there's many a pooch out there that just love to search for the perfect sandy pebble to walk round with. There's driftwood to play fetch with, rock pools to splash in, waves to dodge and dive in and many a critter to meet along the way like crabs and starfish. Oh, did we forget to mention this pooch haven of a beach has not a single restriction on it, it is dog friendly all year round. Yep you read that right, all year round.
So, you've had a blast on the beach, you've made friends with the critters and lots of other pooches but what about lunch or dinner (Tea in Yorkshire) or quenching that thirst? Would it surprise you to know that not only do we have the most exciting dog friendly Beach, Robin Hood's Bay is quite possibly the most dog friendly village. There is barely an establishment that won't accommodate your furry best mate or family member and humans are taken care off too, paw-fect. You'll find doggy-cinos, doggy bar-snacks and you'll be hard pushed to find a place that won't offer up that all important bowl of refreshing water.
Once you've refuelled pop along to Paws of Robin Hood's Bay. You've guessed it, it's a little shop devoted to the pooches that visit Robin Hood's Bay. Well we did tell you this was probably the most dog friendly village. It would be cruel to just walk on by, wouldn't it? You can treat your furry companion to treats, a new coat or bed, doggy Prosecco, well who doesn't love a tipple when on holiday? You can even pick up the forgotten items like the dog bowls and when pooch has rolled in a bit too much seaweed there's doggy shampoo and dog towels too.
You're probably wondering why do I need to holiday in Robin Hood's Bay with the pooch? Why not just come for the day? Dogs need holidays too you know. Sure, pooches are known to be able to sleep anywhere after an exciting adventure filled day. What doggy doesn't love a cosy cottage and a roaring fire to curl up in front of when the humans settle down to watch a film? There's the Cinder Track and the Cleveland Way for more walking adventures and if you remember no two days on Bay Beach will look or feel the same. Each tide that comes in and goes out brings new smells, textures and critters. You'll also meet new friends with each new day.
