A comprehensive guide to the best holiday cottages in Robin Hood's Bay.
Robin Hood’s Bay has a rich history. Yes, it used to be a fishing village but even more interesting is that is was formerly the centre of smuggling operations. Today, it is a lovely holiday village below the North York Moors National Park where visitors can enjoy the interesting coastline, walk breathing in the fresh sea air as well as exploring the National Park.
The narrow streets are evidence to its age and they existed in the late 18th Century when there was much more activity than there is today. Smugglers knew their way around, using hidden alleys and secret tunnels to ferry their contraband. Many of the villagers were involved but today’s inhabitants are purely law-abiding.
Children will love the beach and they may actually find some fossils while the Museum will tell you more about this lovely village.
If you are starting to think that this little village is a great place for a quiet holiday, here are some Robin Hood’s Bay Cottages to consider. There are properties that are suitable for couples, families and groups of friends, even places that can comfortably take up to 10 people. With such flexibility, Robin Hood’s Bay may be just the place for you.
