Yes, MAS Northern does like to be beside the seaside too. This year’s North Yorkshire coast meet took us to High Straggleton Farm. Panoramic sea views, dramatic cliffs, sandy beaches, abbeys and national walking trails. High Straggleton Farm had it all.
Sitting in an elevated position between Whitby and Sandsend with panoramic views of the North Sea and surrounding countryside, it was perfect for dramatic cliff walking along the gorgeous Cleveland Way, for enjoying a sandy beach day and exploring the sights of Whitby.
The site provided access to the Cleveland Way coastal path that led right into Whitby and left towards Staithes and Saltburn. A 15 minute walk also takes you to the sandy beach stretching from Sandsend to Whitby. Buses ran into Whitby centre (about a mile away) as well as further up the Yorkshire North Coast, and many of our group walks made use of a bus return from our linear walks.
Unusually for MAS Northern, High Straggleton Farm also offered EHU (electric hook up) and there was a food van open daily too.
Many thanks to Chris and Colin for stewarding this Yorkshire coastal walking meet.
