The Chalet is a cosy little hideaway for 1 or 2 adults, on the edge of Robin Hood's Bay. It has secure, free parking and is near Whitby, the North Yorkshire Moors and surrounding beautiful areas. It is about 15 minutes walk from the beach, with views over the countryside and a glimpse of the beach.
Easy walking distance to local pubs and some great restaurants, bistros and cafes. Nearest pub is about 5 minutes away, with live music most Tuesdays and Saturdays. Sorry no pets or children.
The Chalet is well equipped to self-cater with a 4 ring hob, microwave, kettle and toaster (no oven) and a range of pots and pans. It has an iron and ironing board. Plus if you find The Chalet needs something else, then just ask and I'll see if I can fulfil a request, within reason!
All bedding, towels and hot drink supplies are provided - tea coffee, decaf coffee, selection of fruit teas, drinking chocolate, small UHT milks, salt, pepper, vinegar. We also provide some basic cereals and porridge. Plus a hairdrier, shower gel, shampoo, soap etc.
There is a TV, DVD player, CD/tape player. The Chalet has a selection of DVDs, including some showing the local area. Plus some CDs, old tapes, books, Board games, playing cards and jigsaw if you fancy a night in.... Free wifi.
There is plenty of space to sit outside and enjoy the views.... with a glimpse of the sea and beach. As The Chalet is at the top of the hill, it enjoys having the evening sunshine for a longer time than lower down nearer the sea. The Grosvenor Hotel, just 5 minutes away, seems to capture even more evening sun!
Interested in a longer stay at a special offer? If you are interested in booking more than 3 nights, then please contact me to see if we can organise a special offer. We often have space of 5 nights from Sunday to Friday or 4 nights midweek - or how about a longer weekend?
N.B. The Chalet is in a large, open courtyard area. Our house is in the same courtyard, where we also park.
Robin Hood’s Bay is a delightful and unspoilt village on the North Yorkshire coast, just 6 miles south of Whitby, with pantiled cottages tumbling down the hillside towards the North Sea. The narrow winding streets and quaint cobbled pathways conceal many beautiful properties, some of which date back to the early 15th century.
It is a perfect year round holiday location, ideal for long weekends, short breaks in all seasons, summer holidays – or to stay at the end of the ‘Coast to Coast’ walk / bike ride.
Little has changed in ‘The Bay’ since the last century, with a history involving pirates, smugglers and press gangs. It is first mentioned in 1538 as a “fisher townlet of twenty boats” and fishing was the main livelihood here until the end of the 19th century. At its peak, Robin Hoods Bay's importance as a fishing centre surpassed that of Whitby! Despite the decline of the once thriving fishing industry you may still see local fishermen working on their nets and lobster pots before putting their boats out to sea.
The village is one of the most picturesque and charming fishing villages on the North Yorkshire 'Heritage Coast'. Located in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, it is the ideal place for just relaxing and also exploring this beautiful and historic area – a delightful mix of sand, sea, rockpools, coast, cliffs, moors, woodland and pretty villages.
There are many things to see and do right in the village – as well as so much in the area. You could park your car (if you bring one) and just walk or cycle… or drive to the stunning North York Moors, visit Whitby or the many other beautiful coastal and inland villages, like Sandsend, Staithes, Runswick, Grosmont, Goathland, Rosedale, Danby, Lealholm and Egton – to name just a few….
There is a regular local bus service (Arriva X93), as well as the beautiful North York Moors Railway, which runs a mix of steam and diesel trains right into Whitby. Scarborough and Whitby are the nearest train stations. Both have a bus service to Robin Hood’s Bay.
There is something to do in the area to suit all tastes and ages, including walking, rock pooling, fishing, horse riding, listening to live music, shopping, eating out and visiting ancient monuments like Whitby Abbey.
Robin Hood's Bay has lots of great eating and drinking places, from pubs and cafes to bistros and 2 fish and chip shops, plus a range of gift shops. There are 3, licensed local stores selling all you'd need to cook a meal, one just about 8 minutes from The Chalet. If that sounds too busy – it isn’t….
The village has a brilliant website for information on events, things to do, photo gallery, attractions, shopping, eating etc…
