The Old School House, managed by HD Adventure, welcomes schools, groups, walkers and families to the picturesque village of Robins Hood’s Bay, home to one of the most unique beaches on Yorkshire's east coast. At the end of Wainwright's Coast to Coast walk, on The Cleveland Way and just one mile from NCN 1, Robin Hood's Bay is an historic fishing village with cobbled streets, rock pools, pubs, cafes and restaurants. It is the perfect location to explore, discover and unwind.

Experienced in providing accommodation, catering and adventure for schools, the Old School House is also ideal for large groups of families and friends to book exclusively. Individual rooms can also be booked by those looking for an affordable holiday by the sea.

There are nine private bedrooms sleeping 4 and 6 people while bathrooms, showers and living spaces are shared. There is a lounge and a separate dining room. A small kitchen area equipped with a fridge, freezer, kettle, toaster and microwave is sufficient for families and individuals to self-cater and when the centre is hired for sole use a large fully equipped kitchen is also available. All catering packages including full board (with a packed lunch), Bed & Breakfast and self-catering are available.
