4 of The Best Walks from Robin Hoods Bay on the Yorkshire Coast
These are our favourite walks from Sea Fern Holiday Cottage..
1. EXPLORE THE AREA - It is always good to have a couple of walks that you can do without having to get in the car! This is our 2 mile, explore the area walk. From the back garden head through the allotment and pick up the foot path that takes you over the fields. Turn right onto the Cinder Path and pick up the foot path again that leads you all the way down to the beach. Head back through the town to make it circular.
2. CLEVELAND WAY BITE SIZED - You can't beat walking along the coast on the Cleveland Way. We love this circular 6 mile route from Fylingthorpe to Hawsker and back along the coastal path. Mud and Routes website provide a map and excellent directions. The route can be started at Sea Fern where you pick up the walking path from the cinder track and head up past Hooks House Farm Camp Site inland towards Hawkser Bottom before returning along the coastal path.
3. BEACH WALK TO RAVENSCAR When the tide is out it is possible to walk from Robin Hoods Bay to Ravenscar along the beach and back along the Cleveland Way or Cinder Path. This round trip is approximately 8-10 miles, so a packed lunch and hot drink or ice cream at the National Trust Cafe near Raven Hall is a welcome half way break. You will also get to see the seals at Ravenscar.
4. WHITBY TO FYL INGTHORPE This 7-mile stretch of the Cleveland Way between Whitby and Robin Hood's Bay takes in some of the best of the North York Moors heritage coastline with a cliff-top path that looks out over the beautiful bays and beaches below. Take the bus to Whitby bus station, head over the swing bridge into the old town and climb the 199 steps to the abbey. Pick up the cleveland way there. Or you can do the route in reverse and reward yourself with a stop at Whitby Brewery at the end. Be sure not to miss the last bus back to Sea Fern if you do it this way round!
