About Robin Hood’s Bay
Robin Hood’s Bay is one of the most popular coastal locations in Yorkshire and the UK. Once it was home to the busiest smuggling trade on the Yorkshire coast, said to involve all the residents. The village is a maze of cobbled streets and houses, the majority dating from the 17th century. Wainwright’s famous Coast to Coast walk starts (or finishes!) just a few yards from the door. And the bay itself is just one of the locations on the coast which (depending on the tide) enables you to walk miles along the sandy beaches. Fossils are definitely a part of Robin Hood's Bay. Ammonites and various types of bivalves can be found along the beach, either north or south from the quayside.
For an evening meal there is the Bramblewick Bistro, or Smugglers opposite. There are also several good pubs in the village offering "pub grub". If you want to stay in; there is the well-stocked Muir Lea Stores and a fishmongers, selling the locally caught crab. There is a good fish & chip shop near the dock. While in the village, other locally run shops selling all manner of things, from antiques to clothes to secondhand books.
Robin Hood's Bay is a few miles from the gothic town of Whitby which is well worth a visit. Apart from the road, there are 2 paths to Whitby. A cinder cycle path (which also goes to Scarborough) and a clifftop coastal path which is part of the Cleaveland Way. Whitby is also the beginning of the North Yorkshire Moors steam railway, a fantastic and still working line.
Greenfield’s location is perfect. Set in the heart of Robin Hoods Bay, all of the village’s tea-rooms and shops and pubs are just a stone’s throw away, and you can be walking on the beach within 2 minutes from the front door. At low tide the sandy beach is extensive and you can walk south for several miles, to Ravenscar, where there is a wild seal colony living on the headland. Throughout the year there are no restrictions barring dogs from the beach . The village is dog friendly and they are allowed in all the local pubs.
