    The Cleveland Way runs for 109 miles from Helmsley, around the edge of the North York Moors to Saltburn, then down the coast to Filey.

    We did the walk over 8 days - a 4 day holiday in October 2016 and another 4 day trip in March 2017. In both cases we started at Saltburn, so for the second section we were doing the walk 'backwards'.

    Day 0
    We met up at Malton (a relative lives there) and got the afternoon Coastliner bus to Whitby, where we stayed in the YHA overnight - a splendid position on top of the east cliff, next to the ruined abbey.

    Day 1 - Saltburn to Runswick Bay - 12 miles
    Bus from Whitby to Saltburn to start the walk.

    Another day with excellent weather, and some time to spend sitting on top of the cliffs near Filey, before heading for the Coastliner to return to Malton.
