It is simply impossible for us to say which one is our favourite, because they all offer something different. I think I’d have to say Sandsend is best for toddlers, Whitby for surfing teens, Robin Hood’s bay for dogs and rock pooling. The 5 wonderful beaches described below are all within easy reach of Seafern Cottage.
Which one will become your favourite? Come and stay with us, spend a day at each and see if you can decide.

Explore the fabulous rock pools at Robin Hood’s Bay and identify shoreline creatures using our rock pool guide. It's also great for fossil hunting or just people watching on the quarter deck with a coffee from the kiosk or fish and chips from Fish Box (down the side street between the sweet shop and smugglers).
