Robin Hood’s Bay is a picturesque and unspoilt fishing village situated on the stunning Yorkshire Heritage coast between Whitby (the landing place of Bram Stoker’s Dracula) and Scarborough.  ‘The Bay’ has had a colourful past, starting out as a fishing village and becoming one of the major smugglers villages of the East Coast in the 17th and 18th centuries, with many a tale about all the houses being linked by secret doorways and underground passages.  It is told that, whenever Customs Officers were in the area, a bolt of silk could be landed in the dock and passed from cottage to cottage without ever seeing the light of day – until it emerged at the top of the not insignificant bank!

The old village is a maze of narrow winding cobbled streets, with higgledy-piggledy stone cottages perched one on top of the other, many clinging to the sheer cliffs, which plummet to the sea below.  The vast beach (at low tide) has it all, good firm sand, rock pools and for the patient, fossils can be found in the soft cliffs. The village is popular all year round and is perfect for summer holidays or winter breaks. It forms a good base for the enthusiastic walker, with both the Cleveland Way and the Coast-to-Coast paths. The outstanding natural beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors, with its steam railway (featured in the popular Harry Potter films), Broxa and Dalby forests and many picture postcard villages to explore, is within easy reach.

There are some great old pubs in the village, we particularly like The Victoria for family friendly food, and The Laurel which is just the sort of place to drink good beer all afternoon on those wet days. There are also great restaurants such as Bramble’s Bistro, tearooms such as Elle Estelle’s and Tea Post & Post, and Muir Lee stores (our village shop) and we are incredibly lucky to have some amazing artisan shops, such as Jessica Hogarth (famous local artist) and Bertie’s of Bay.  Should you wish to venture to the top of the hill, there is an excellent Post Office cum newsagents cum general store – they sell car park passes for either of the council car parks at the top of the village, useful if you have two or more cars.
