Day 14 Glaisdale to Littlebeck

It was just a short 8 mile stroll this morning, rather than the 20 mile hike some do to make it to Robin Hood’s Bay in one day from Glaisdale – which is the traditional way of completing the walk.

Even starting gone 9am, stopping at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, and a walk via the Hermitage and Flowing Foss waterfall would not delay me too long.

The path out of Glaisdale went along the river and through some very nice woodland, which also offered some protection from the rain. Further shelter was found at Grosmont Station tea room. Here I summoned up the energy needed for the road out of Grosmont provided the greatest challenge of the day – it was a series of 1 in 3 hills up onto the moor.

Crossing over the moor I descended a short 1 in 3 hill into Littlebeck village, and saw the signpost to the B&B. It had only just gone noon so instead of heading directly there I continued on the Coast to Coast path along the valley, passing the Hermitage and Flowing Foss waterfall. At this point I left the Coast to Coast path and headed north, up the other side of the hill that formed the valley, to the B&B.

The B&B was fantastic and on a dreary Sunday afternoon I curled up in front of a fire with the papers.

  1. @Stephanie, I am pretty sure I stayed at Intake Farm in Littlebeck. It was a great welcome and a delicious evening meal.
