Robin Hood’s Bay

Perched on the coast between the surrounding cliffs of Scarborough and Whitby sits a Bay. The backdrop of the Bay is an old Yorkshire fishing village. This is Robin Hood’s Bay the gem on the picturesque coastal edge of the North York Moors National.

Built on a steep hill the old 17th Century village heads down to the Bay. Winding streets, steep steps and cobbled alleyways make up what was once called Baytown. A maze of a village it’s easy to get lost here in Robin Hood’s Bay. Just all part of the magic of what makes it so special. 

Smuggling in Robin Hood’s Bay

Robin Hood’s Bay harbours a deep rooted history of smuggling. The Kings Beck, cottage cellars, secret passages and snickets all helped with the illicit activities. Smuggling of Rum, Tea, Silk and Tobacco. There wasn't a person in the village that didn't participate in the illegal activities. Be it the smuggling, hiding, transporting or protecting of the secret goings on.

Legend has it that contraband could leave the Bay and reach the top of the village without ever seeing daylight.You can still see evidence of Robin Hood’s Bay’s smuggling past to this day and you can learn more at the local museum.

Robin Hood’s Bay Houses

Back in the days before the Victorian upper village was built Robin Hood’s Bay was home to many fishing families.

Red pantiled rooftops complete with smoking chimneys tumble down towards the sea. Each one towering above the streets and alleys much like Diagon Alley. It’s difficult to know sometimes where one sandstone cottage ends and another begins.

Many are built on four floors, occasionally less, occasionally more. Steep stairs, uneven floors, higgledy piggledy rooms and sometimes low ceilings and narrow doors. All this just further adds to the cosy feeling and magic of Bay houses. 

Modern Day Robin Hood’s Bay

Not so old inside these days many of the cottages have undergone makeovers. You’ll find a range of more traditional cottages, luxury cottages and everything in between.

The range of facilities across our collection of Holiday Cottages is varied. Each cottage is lovingly owned and cared for by a different owner. If there is a particular facility or feature you are looking for please contact us and we will advise of the best property for you.
