Robin Hood’s Bay

North York Moors

Route: Robin Hood’s Bay

Area: North York Moors

Date of walk: 10th April 2013

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 9.1 miles

Ascent: 400 feet

We parked near the Raven Hall Hotel in Ravenscar and went along a downhill track to join the Cleveland Way. The path runs along the cliff top with great views along the coast to Robin Hood’s Bay and beyond

Unfortunately the skies were overcast and it was slightly misty, so the photos don’t properly convey the beauty of the surroundings. Click here to see what it’s like in better weather

As we approached our destination we dropped down to the beach, and walked along the shore for a mile or so. We then wandered around the lovely narrow streets of Robin Hood’s Bay

It was an easy walk back to Ravenscar along the disused track of the Whitby to Scarborough Railway, which operated from 1885 until its closure in 1965

The weather was dull, unlike the walk, which we both enjoyed
