High Hawsker - Coast to Coast Path (Cleveland Way) - Robin Hoods Bay - Bottom House - High Hawsker

Robin Hoods Bay
By Neil Haslewood
9th September 2009

A walk while on holiday in the North York Moors. It was a very early start from the village of High Hawsker south of Whitby. It was a fantastic sunny day with hardly a cloud in sight. I saw only two people until I arrived in Robin Hoods Bay. The costal path forms part of the Cleveland Way and the Coast to Coast path. Robin Hoods Bay is a lovely fishing village but today there were lots of tourists around. The costal path has great views to the fantastic cliff scenery around this area. It was a great walk in a great part of the North York Moors National Park.
