Hayburn Wyke Yorkshire – A True Smugglers’ Cove

A beautiful waterfall

With half term just about on us we are always looking for new ways to  entertain our children.  Well, I have found this magical little rocky cove – Hayburn Wyke, Yorkshire, between Scarborough and Whitby,

well away from all the amusement arcades and novelty shops.

A great starting point is the Hayburn Wyke Inn, a truly hidden gem nestled in the middle of a beautiful National Park.  If you eat or have a drink at the Inn you can use the pub car park. The inn has a great outside seating area and a separate children's adventure playground. Older children love the indoor pool table, but ensure you have some change.

From the car park it is a short walk to the cove.  Facing the pub head towards the left hand corner of the car park, go through the gate and follow the footpath round along the field and through a second  gate into the wooded area. Follow the woodland path, which may be steep in places, down and it will eventually emerge at the top of a tumbling water fall which flows directly onto the pebble beach below. The beach is a a true smugglers' cove, a mixture of pebbles and rocks, with several giant boulders, a true Famous Five adventure.  Kids of all ages will enjoy the experience, plus if you are lucky you may see some sea lions in the sea.

To find the inn take the Ravenscar road from Cloughton, a village on the A171 on the Scarborough to Whiby road.

Finish your day with fish and chips from North Bay Fisheries in Scarborough or the Magpie Cafe in Whitby.
