Robin Hood’s Bay

Perched on the coast between the surrounding cliffs of Scarborough and Whitby sits a beautiful Bay. The backdrop of the Bay is the old Yorkshire fishing village Robin Hood’s Bay. Built on a steep hill the old 17th Century lower 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.

The upper village of Robin Hood’s Bay is predominantly Victorian, boasting large Victorian terraced, detached and semi detached houses.

The lower village of Robin Hood’s Bay doesn’t lend itself well to the storage and cleaning of bicycles. Although it isn’t impossible, properties with outside space are less common in the lower village.
