Robin Hood’s Bay

Robin Hood’s Bay is a picturesque old fishing village on the Heritage Coast of the North York Moors. It is a fantastic place for adults and children alike with a beautiful family (and dog!) friendly sandy beach, as well as rock pools to explore and ancient fossils to discover. Wandering through its narrow, twisting cobbled streets and alleyways, you can easily imagine the sailors and fishermen, smugglers and press gangs that walked these streets hundreds of years ago.

Runswick Bay

Clinging to the cliff at the northern end of a beautiful sweep of sand, Runswick Bay is yet another of those North Yorkshire villages which seems impossibly pretty.

This bracing moorland village has attracted visitors since the 19th century, but numbers soared following its appearance (as ‘Aidensfield’) in the television series ‘Heartbeat’ and its role in the ‘Harry Potter’ films.


Ravenscar from above


Ravenscar is one of the most intriguing places on the Yorkshire coast for those interested in history. Its dramatic clifftop location made it ideal as a site for one of a string of Roman signal stations along this part of the Yorkshire coast. Also home to a large seal colony.




With its higgledy-piggledy cottages and winding streets, Staithes has the air of a place lost in time. Once one of the largest fishing ports on the North East coast.
