|Robin Hood's Bay and Stoupe Brow|

|North Yorkshire, Robin Hood's Bay|
|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. |
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. Allow 3 hours.
From the A171 Whitby to Scarborough road, take the B1447 at High Hawsker, which runs down into the Robin Hood’s Bay. Alternatively, you could take the No.93 or X93 bus from Middlesbrough, Guisborough, Whitby and Scarborough, operated by Arriva Buses. There is a pay and display car park on Station Road. Approximate post code YO22 4RA. The walk starts by Fylingdales Hall at the edge of the Station Road car park.
|Start to Browside Farm|
Start point: 54.4356 lat, -0.538 long
From the Station car park, follow the access road to the right (away from the vehicle entrance), immediately passing the village hall and old railway station buildings. The road is quiet, and part of the Cinder Track – a cycle path along the old railway line from Scarborough to Whitby – and waymarked as part of the National Cycle Network. The track drops down to a road, cross it and turn right for a short way then follow the Cinder Track sign to the left to re-join the cycle track.
|Browside Farm to Boggle Hole|
Start point: 54.4091 lat, -0.5327 long
After the track bears right, pass under a stone bridge with a brick arch then turn left onto a short path which leads to a single-track road. With a fine sea view ahead, follow the road as it meanders downhill towards Stoupebrow Cottage Farm – keeping your dog under close control. As the road straightens, there are spectacular views of Robin Hood’s Bay and its cliffs in front.
|Boggle Hole to End|
Start point: 54.4228 lat, -0.5308 long
Once across Mill Beck, climb some more steep steps and follow the path up into the trees. Pass through a gate and continue ahead along an enclosed path with fine views of Robin Hood’s Bay straight ahead. After passing through the next gate, turn right while remaining on the waymarked coastal path, the Cleveland Way. Again there is some erosion here – so keep your dog under close control.

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
