Things to do around Robin Hood's Bay, Whitby and the North Yorkshire Coastline

Local Area Attractions

Approximately two miles from Holly Cottage is the picturesque coastal village of Robin Hood’s Bay with it’s interesting maze of twisting streets famously renowned as a smuggler’s haunt. After a walk along the beach and exploring the rock pools and fossils, a welcome choice of Inns, a tea room, bistro or good old fish and chips are available to enjoy.

Victorian Weekend 2016 takes place at Robin Hood's Bay on 2nd 3rd & 4th of December - 'Welly Wanging' & 'Balls down the bank' fun, festive decorations & refreshments, offering everyone the opportunity to dress up traditional Victorian costumes.
