~More of the Summer Hols~

As promised a few more photos of mine and Laura's weekend away further up the Yorkshire Coast at Robin Hood's Bay. I found this B and B last year when we had a walk round RHB, it looked just my cup of tea and if I'm going to pay to stay anywhere I like it to exceed what I've got at home if you know what I mean, otherwise what's the point? So we stayed at Lynnfield B and B which is a beautifully renovated Victorian house at the top of the steep hill on the main street.  It was built in 1897 for the aptly named Captain Storm and it remained in the family until 2010 when the current owners bought it and renovated it - doing a fantastic job.

 We stayed in a twin room on the ground floor.  Look how lovely it was with crocheted throws and beautiful art deco lights...
 The view into the back yard...

 An original built-in cupboard housing some of a huge collection of Hornsea and mid 20th century pottery.  The breakfast room was also a showcase for more stunning pottery - have a look on their website for more pics.
 The matching art deco light fitting.  I would like to take this home!

 A pristine shower room with lovely toiletries...

 
Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice and local produce.
 
We didn't have the best weather - it was incredibly humid and grey at times with sun and showers thrown in...but we got out and about and visited Runswick Bay further up the coast which was very pretty and sort of like a Yorkshire Cornwall :)


I'd never been to Sandsend before either, which is 2 miles north of Whitby.  We loved it here with it's cafes on the beach, surf school, galleries and gift shops and fantastic beach.  I particularly liked Wild Hart gift and vintage gallery which also has a branch in York.  I fancy Sandsend as a few days away next Summer.
 

 
I like a beach with sand and pebbles as you know...
 

...and it was a fantastic place to find sea glass which passed an hour or two!
 
 
 
I hope you enjoyed that little trip to the Yorkshire coast again!

  1. Love this post, last Saturday me and hubby went to Staithes and then onto Runswick bay - I cant believe I'm about half an hour away (at the most!) and had never been there - I loved it!!!! Ideal for the kids so we'll be packing a picnic up and heading off there (as soon as the weather sorts itself out!!) Did you spot the little white cottage at RB to the far right at the edge - I want to live there!!!

  4. J walked coast to coast for charity in 1995, and we stayed in a B and B at the top of the hill in Robin Hood's Bay when he finished it. I do love the Yorkshire coast. We haven't been this year as we don't have a car anymore, so I'm very grateful to get a ' fix' through your photographs.

  9. Sally I have left 2 previous comments and I don't know what's happened to them. The B and B looks fab. We are going to RHB in October. Staying in a cottage close to there I think. So looking forward to it. Hope you have saved some sea glass for me!
    Thank you so much for the lovely card. The painting is lovely. I still have a jug and plate for you so we will have to meet up soon. Lots of love anne

    1. Hi Anne, I have had trouble with comments too lately, the security code thingy does not appear properly and my comments won't load. ?? not sure why. Sandsend was a trove of seaglass, the best of the beaches we thought. Sending you lots of love
