The Little House

Robin Hood's Bay and the Local Area

Robin Hood's Bay is situated between Whitby and Scarborough on the picturesque North Yorkshire coast. Only a short distance from the North Yorkshire Moors and many local attractions, it's the perfect place from which to explore this beautiful part of the country.


Robin Hood's Bay has become a tourism hot spot in recent years, as the mixture of local history and culture, coastal and moorland countryside and everything else this area has to offer is perfect for families, groups and couples to enjoy.

The Little House is situated in the Dock area of the old part of Robin Hood's Bay, at the bottom of Bay Bank. It's close to many local ammenities including several excellent cafes and pubs, shops and other places of interest.

If you want to venture out of the village, the local bus service runs through the main village at the top of the Bank where you'll also find car parking (guest's vehicles cannot be parked at the bottom of the Bank). Whitby is only a short drive away (approximately 15 minutes) to the north, whilst Scarborough is approximately 30 minutes drive south. The Esk Valley (which includes many pretty villages such as Goathland, where 'Heartbeat' was filmed) is also only a short drive away and offers wonderful scenery, the North Yorkshire Moors Steam Railway, and many footpaths and trails suitable for walkers of all capabilities.

There are many other local beaches and coastal villages worth visiting if you're visiting during the warmer months, such as Whitby and Sandsend, Staithes and Rusnwick Bay.

A slightly longer journey away you'll find attractions such as Dalby Forest, offering miles of mountain bike trails as well as an excellent visitor centre and family friendly walking and other activities.
