Coastguard cottage in Yorkshire

Positioned next to the sea, this house has a history to tell, having been used as an inn, coastguard lookout and marine life study centre. Now owned by the National Trust, it provides an opportunity to stay in Robin Hood’s Bay, a small coastal village in Yorkshire, resonant with legends of smugglers, pirates, and heroic shipwreck rescue. This stretch of the green and rugged Yorkshire coast has a fabulous variety of habitats: meadows and woodland reach the coastal heath and grassland, ensuring a diversity of birds and flowers. You can enjoy great cliff-top views walking the Cleveland Trail.  More information
