Robin Hood’s Bay

North Yorkshire

Route: Robin Hood’s Bay

Area: North Yorkshire

Date of walk: 10th April 2016

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 7.7 miles

Ascent: 1,100 feet

Weather: Sun and blue skies

We parked in the public car park above Robin Hood’s Bay and in order to save the best until last we didn’t walk down to the village, but instead walked along a country lane heading north away from it. We then left the lane to follow a succession of paths (some of them exceptionally muddy) until we reached the road near High Hawkser

We turned right here to follow a track towards the coast which took us through a static caravan park where we refuelled at the excellent Coast Cafe Bar

Suitably refreshed we carried on towards the North Sea and it was a great moment when we arrived at the cliff top to join the Cleveland Way. This brought back happy memories of the climax of our Coast to Coast Walk some 15 years ago

We followed the cliff top path back to Robin Hood’s Bay, and then strolled round the village for a while before climbing back up to the car park to end a wonderful walk
