Robin Hood's Bay Travel Guide: 57 reviews and 109 photos


We love this place. It's the essence of a small fishing village - located on the North Yorkshire coast with houses of all shapes and sizes squashed into all manner of places cheek-by-jowl.

It's best to park up at the top at the pay and display car park - there is no parking at all further down - and don't even think about having a little drive down just to look or you may regret it!

The first time you visit you'll be amazed at the variety of tiny little houses, roof tops, ginnels and passage ways. It's not difficult to imagine smugglers disappearing into the mists in this place!

We have stayed here on previous occasions (Ingleby House, see accommodation), but it is also nice to visit for the day.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:picturesque old fishing village
  • Cons:No car parking in the old village, can get crowded
  • In a nutshell:If I were a smuggler, I would want to live here.

    Always well worth a visit. I walked here from St Bees Head on the West Coast on the famous Wainwrights Coast to Coast walk (2 weeks)
