Make Robin Hood's Bay Your Summer Holiday Destination

Do you love to holiday in the UK?

Do you love UK coastal destinations?

Read on to find out why Robin Hood’s Bay is such a great all year round Holiday Destination. 

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.

Robin Hood’s Bay harbors 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.

Now some of you have additional furry members of the family. We're sure it will please you and the pooch to know that Robin Hood's Bay is an all year-round dog friendly village. There are no beach restrictions, many of the Pubs, Restaurants, Cafes and shops are dog friendly. They are also very obliging with a bowl of water and you will also find doggy bar snacks. The pooches will also be overjoyed to know that they have their very own shop dedicated to them. So, you can treat them just as much as you would treat yourselves or the children when on holiday.

A cottage that sleeps up to 4, 5 or even 6 can be just as suitable for 2. You won't be left feeling like you are rattling around a huge house.
