A 3 mile walk following a figure of eight routes through Twigmoor Woods in North Lincolnshire. Twigmoor is 130 acres of native woodland and introduced shrubs, conifers and ornamental species which creates a rich and varied habitat for wildlife. The woods are owned by the Scawby Estate with public access allowed in certain parts, giving nearly 3 miles of paths open to the public. There are extensive areas of rhododendrons (which give a stunning display of blooms in late spring) and also a number of large lakes.

Why you should do this walk…
A 6 mile circular walk from Robin Hood’s Bay on the North Yorkshire coast. Beginning with a wide easy to follow path, the walk offers a good steady climb opening up magnificent views of the North Sea, the coast and Ravenscar. The more strenuous return leg along the cliff tops eventually drops into historic Robin Hood’s Bay with its attractions, pubs and cafes. There’s plenty of opportunity for your dog to be let off the lead safely and they are allowed on this beach all year round too.
The outward leg is mainly on the track bed of the former railway line to Scarborough, the return leg along the cliff is more strenuous and includes two steep climbs using steps. There are some quiet roads to cross and the final section in Robin Hood’s Bay can be busy at holiday times or weekends. There are no stiles to negotiate but you will need to use several flights of steps. Including the beach, much of this walk allows your dog a great deal of freedom to have a run and a good sniff around. Dogs are allowed all year on this beach, but please clean up.
