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.

Dog friendly?…

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.

    I did this walk on 17/07/12, with my two Jack Russell’s Jack & Millie. We had a fab day and the poochies loved the beach part of the walk. This site is fantastic and very helpful. We are doing another walk from this site on Thursday!

    Glad Jack and Millie had fun on the beach walk. Let us know how you got on with the Castle Howard Welburn walk when you’ve got a min.

    This was the first walk I took on September 30,2013 with 2 of our three labs. Pepo 12 years and a few months and Auriga just over a year had been stuck inside for several days – so this was the first walk to really stretch their and my legs after 12 nours drive from Cologen, Germany the day before. I found your website by chance on the internet and was very peased with the outcome. I did 3 of your walks before continuing on toScotland on October 3. Thank you.

      We did this walk 9 dec following the cleveland way signs after hundreds of steps up and down cliffs some ok some quite iffy the youngest of us age 72 we were on the cliff path all the way At one point we had to go on our hands knees up a very steep hill. (not very long)the ground was muddy and very slippy and was quite near the edge of the cliff , another point took us to a flight of steep spiral steps and at the bottom stepping stones over a stream then up another flight of steps this walk took approx 4hrs a nd brought us out at the lighthouse at Whitby ,which we were all very thankful to see. We would like to do the walk again only the easier version along the beach. Can anyone tell us where we went wrong

    This is a great walk, we found it really easy to follow however when we got to point 6 we got confused as there are 2 sign posts saying the same thing on the right hand side, you have to have carry on downhill which bears to the left to get to the steep steps onto the beach.
    Would definitely do this walk again!

      Two Cocker Spaniels just loved it
      The flights of steps up and down are challenging for the less fit
      Although taking the beach route should make it a doodle
      Excellent directions
      Thank you

    We loved this walk! The scenery changed throughout from village, to wooded cinder path, to rural farming, to beach and coastal path and finally back to the simply idyllic Robin Hood’s bay. If we did it again and the tide was out we would opt to complete the walk along the beach as the last down and up by Boggle Hole was quite tough (steep steps)! We would definitely do this walk again!
