Thorpe Hall

Thorpe Hall

Locals call it Bay

I’ve had an idea for a film for a while – a rom com based about a couple who have a dream to up sticks and leave their big jobs in the city for a new life by the coast. The seaside setting would be the star of the show. The cast would be a mix of wealthy ex-Londoners, who have fled the smog for fresh air, and families who have been in the village for generations. The romance would revolve around a Manor House full of history and the comings and goings of friends, family and guests. The ending would be something very happy.

The setting… Thorpe Hall, Robin Hood’s Bay

Auditions being held now.

Life by the sea

Robin Hood’s Bay (or Bay as the locals refer to it) is the quintessential fishing village. There is a friendly vibe and a local feel. You feel like you are always on holiday. Thorpe Hall is tucked away in Fylingthorpe, which is a short walk from the beach. There is a great pub, well stocked store and lovely people.

The sea is on one side of the village and the North York Moor National Park on the other. Whitby is only 5 miles away, Scarborough 16.5 miles and York 58 miles from where you can whizz into the capital every now and then.

Fyling Hall School is a wonderful place to educate children and there are lots of things to keep young minds engaged locally.
