Other walks that we would suggest would be from Boggle Hole to Robin Hood's Bay where you can enjoy a lovely walk along the Cleveland Way. Take in the beautiful sea views and enjoy scrumptious fish and chips before making your way back. 




2. Enjoy a Candle Lit Dinner

North Yorkshire is home to some fantastic restaurants that offer fine dining including some Michelin Stars amongst them. The Black Swan at Oldstead is a Michelin Star restaurant owned by Tommy Banks. The sensational tasting menu in a cosy setting is the great backdrop to a romantic night and perfect for those who want a culinary experience.
