“Lovely traditional village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Well worth a visit . This pretty little fishing village really throws you back in time. Buy a tray of chips and stand on the lookout and admire the view.

“High tide times”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Unfortunately I had not taken into account the possibility of high tides preventing me from accessing the beach itself... If I were to be planning a future trip I would certainly make it a priority to check these, as when I arrived at Robin Hoods Bay there was no sand visible , and impossible to access the beach

“Victoriana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

First time here parked up top and walked down taking in the quaint streets and houses. The locals dress up for the pageant. which gave it a good atmosphere. Queen Vic and Mr Brown very impressive. Well worth a visit.

“Picturesque.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

Before descending into the quintessentially superb village, do take time to read the monument at the top of the hill which describes the endeavours of Whitby lifeboatmen dragging their lifeboat 6 miles from Whitby in snow and a storm in early 1881 to rescue the crew of a shipwreck off Robin Hood's Bay. This is a truly wonderful village - walk down, and return to the car park via the seafront. You'll not fail to be impressed. It's all there.

“Great beach for the dog”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Stayed in scarborough the other weekend and decided to go to Whitby but never got there as noticed Robin Hoods Bay on the map - parked in the carpark at the top which was free and walked down to the beach which was great for the dog as the tide was going out. It was a busy and quaint little village. Not for the faint hearted though if you have to walk back up the hill but if your a walker then why not.
