My Favourite Dog Walks on the Yorkshire Coast

Hi I'm Emma, one of the Homeowner and Guest Service Advisor's here at Ingrid Flute's Yorkshire Holiday Cottages in Whitby.
In my spare time I love getting out and about on the Yorkshire Coast with my dog Ronnie, and there are two places which I absolutely love to walk him, one of them being Runswick Bay.
About 8 miles out of the seaside town of Whitby, this little gem of a village has a lovely beach you can walk for miles along the coast. It has old bomb shelters and coves in the rocks that you can explore while the sun shines down on you. As you can see Ronnie absolutely loves this beach because he can run around and play in the water.
The old railway line from Whitby to Sandsend is another one of our favourite places to walk. The line connected Whitby to Middlesbrough and Scarborough which also went through Staithes and was last in use in 1958.
There are plenty of little turn offs you can go down to make the walk more interesting and eventually you will get to 'the moon’. A big section of the land that looks like the wall of the moon, which makes a great story to tell the kids!
We feel very blessed to have these lovely parts of Yorkshire right on our doorstep for us to visit whenever we feel like we’re in need of a good blast of the fresh sea air! And not to mention the stunning views from the tops of the cliffs.
