It was a relatively quiet trip of course, ideal for an older or recovering dog! Here's a list of things we did which I can recommend for dog friendliness!
1. Ladycross Plantation Caravan Park and Lodges
A wonderful site on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors a few miles from Whitby. We stayed in one of the lodges, which were stunning. The site has a strict dogs on leads policy, not least to safeguard their free range chickens, but is very welcoming and a woodland footpath of a mile or so skirts the edge of the site. A great location for a holiday base.
2. Fish and Chips and a stroll round Whitby
There were plenty of dogs in tow around Whitby. We weren't blessed with great weather but still enjoyed a few visits and sitting on the harbourside watching the world go by. Plenty of dog friendly pubs and cafes although we stuck with fish and chips - four times in the week. Trenchers were our favourite. Hadleys were good but a bit more greasy - good location for a walk up to the Abbey though. The famous Magpie was a bit of a disappointment given the hype.
3. Robin Hoods Bay
The steep hill is worth it. At the bottom you'll find the village and best of all a dog friendly beach. Sadly the beach was off limits to our recovering dog (he was just too excited) but the hill was perfect for some strength training!
A beautiful place. Less of a hike than Robin Hoods Bay. Although the tide was in when we visited there was still a small dog friendly beach to be found. A place I want to return to one day!
5. Falling Foss Waterfall and Tea Garden
A magical place. Heavenly walks in the woods and a great tea garden in a great setting. I'd say this is a must for anyone with a dog!
6. The Postgate Inn Egton Bridge
Fabulous pub. Dogs welcome in the bar. Booking advised. Amazing food!
