WALKS FROM SEA FERN COTTAGE ROBIN HOODS BAY
These are perfect short walks from Sea Fern Holiday Cottage around Robin Hood's Bay, because it is always good to have a couple of walks that you can do without having to get in the car!
2 MILE EXPLORE THE AREA AND THE BEACH - 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. If the tide is in you can take in the sea views at the Quater Deck and grab a coffee and freshly made doughnuts at Galley in the Bay. Head back through the town and pick up a tasteful souvenir from the talented Robin Hood's Bay artist herself at Jessica Hogarth's Shop.
3 MILE BOGGLE HOLE LOOP - When the tide is out it is possible to walk from Robin Hoods Bay to Boggle Hole Youth Hostel along the beach and back along the Cleveland Way. If the tide is in you can still make this a circular walk along the Cleveland Way and Cinder Path. This rout is approximately 3 miles. The the beach at Boggle Hole is sandy and perfect for a paddle or wild swim. You can warm up with a hot chocolate in the youth hostel cafe.
3 MILE 'HIGH VIEWS' WALK - If you want the best views this short walk certainly delivers! From Sea Fern Cottage head up Church Lane past Old St Stephens Church. At the main road head straight across onto High Lane. At Bay Ness Farm turn right and drop back down into Smay Lane and along Elm Grove and onto Mount Pleasant. Head back through the old station car park stopping off for a tipple at the Fylingdales Inn. Then avoid the hill as you drop down Middlewood Land past the historic Thorp Hall and cut back up to Sea Fern Cottage through back garden via the allotments. This walk is mainly on quiet roads, so it can be welcome relief from all the mud at times of heavy rain.
All these walks are short and you can make them as leisurely as you like with our recommended pubs and cafes along the way.
