Coast to Coast day 13: Littlebeck to Robin Hood’s Bay


The final day! An easy walk through a wood then across the moors, with an early lunch at the Arnciffe Arms in Hawsker before a nice walk along the coast and then a steep descent down the cobblestone streets of Robin Hood’s Bay.

The first section goes through Littlebeck Wood and down to Falling Foss waterfall. The path then follows May Beck before a bit of road walking and then across the final moors of the walk to Hawsker. From here the path drops down through a caravan park to join the Cleveland Way on the cliffs above the North Sea. An enjoyable walk along the cliffs south to Robin Hood’s Bay completes the walk.

As expected, arriving at Robin Hood’s Bay was a bit of an anti-climax. But still, a great feeling of accomplishment and a terrific walk. Following tradition we stuck our boots in the sea, and I tossed in the pebble I’d carried from St Bees. We then retired for a truly well-earned beer.

(Total distance approx. 12 miles)
