How to find us
According to a recent National Park survey:
- Over 90% of visitors come to the National Park by private car
- Such a volume of recreational traffic is putting strain on the environment of the Moors
- Surveys have identified that 31% of National Park residents thought that traffic posed the greatest single threat to the special qualities of the area.
In addition, parking in Robin Hood's Bay is limited and at peak times can be frustratingly busy. It is in everyone's best interest to explore alternative methods of transport where both possible and practical.
