the 'Bay' is good safe bathing place, fine weather, but a bit cold today!

 

Robin Hoods Bay clings to the cliffside.

 

The slipway and the Bay Hotel - good pub for folk music.

The Raven Hotel - quite a setting.

 

? house again! To do with alum works originally?

 

Back up to the parked car in Ravenscar, but no departure until a cup of tea and piece of cake!

 

Ravenscar, North Sea Coast, North Yorkshire, England: The Ravenscar Tearooms is above the sea at Ravenscar and is a good parking location and starting point for some stunning coastal walking above Robin Hoods Bay and go fossil hunting below the Raven Hotel at Ravenscar.

The Raven Hall Country House Hotel is dramatically set above the cliffs and golf course at Ravenscar near Whitby, North Yorkshire. The sea views are wonderful and what a backdrop to play golf to!

The Tea rooms are one of the few houses built that was to be part of a great seaside spa town 'fed' by the railway - BUT it all never happened, so Ravenscar is the town that never was, and it s all explained on a visitor information board on the old railway station platform.

 

Robin Hoods Bay, Near Whitby, North Yorkshire, England: The Bay Hotel is right down on the sea-front and Wainwright's Bar signifies the official end of The Coast to Coast Walk from St Bees Head to Robin Heads Bay.

The Swell cafe-tearoom well up on the right of the main street. It has wonderful views from the back balcony in either direction i.e. you can sit and sup your tea or coffee looking up or down the wonderful North Yorkshire Coast and its beach and rinteresting rock formations.

Winding your way up the main street is the Ye Dolphin pub at the back of which are the traditional red-tiled houses clinging to the side of the cliff on the steep descent to the sea.

When you have finished a coastal walk from Whitby to Robin Hoods Bay and enter RHB itself you are confronted with a variety of places for refreshment before catching a bus or returning to your car in the nearby carpark.

The Station Road Stores (below left, includes picnic tables) and the Victoria Hotel (below right) which overlooks the Bay itself.
