The Space

Neighborhood
The small fishing village of Sandsend sits at the end of almost 3 miles of sandy beach, west along the bay from Whitby. Perfect for relaxing stays, you can watch the surfers bob in the distance as you stretch your legs along the shores and soak up the sea air as you feel the sand beneath your toes. You’ll have a selection of restaurants, cafes and a local pub for you to enjoy during your stay.

Whitby is a short 10 minute drive from Sandsend where you can explore everything the seaside town has to offer. Visit the infamous Whitby Abbey which went on to inspire Bram Stoker’s gothic novel ‘Dracula’. Try the local catch of the day in one of the many fish restaurants, enjoy a drink in the cosy pubs and feel nostalgia in the arcades which line Pier Road. You can’t miss the beautiful Blue Flag West Cliff beach which is complete with colourful huts on the promenade.

Getting Around
You can explore Sandsend on foot with the beach right on your doorstep.

Hop on the X4 bus and you can visit beautiful villages like Runswick Bay, Staithes and Whitby.

Whitby train station is 10-minutes away via car so villages and towns along the North Yorkshire coast can easily be reached via rail. There’s also a taxi rank in close proximity to the train station.

Brilliant location, beautiful property and space<br/><br/>The bed was a bit too bouncy and a bit uncomfortable, however this may be due to working in bed sales myself

We made our own breakfast.. But lots of appliances to cook anything. We ate at the local pub. Beautiful location. Stroll along the beach, walk around the village. Excellent bus service too. The welcome pack was gorgeous surprise too.<br/><br/>Pretty much near perfect to be fair. One suggestion would be to have a, hand towel for the kitchen. But I'd be happy to take my own next time

Absolutely fantastic place. <br/>The view is amazing and the cottage itself is home from home. <br/>Really welcoming, literally a stone’s throw from the beach and fantastic restaurants right on the doorstep. <br/>The owners have thought of everything and the cottage is very well equipped. <br/>The very thoughtful and generous welcome hamper was delightful. <br/>We will certainly be returning. <br/>Thank you!

l stayed with my 93 year old mum and my Labrador. The location to the beach and good eateries was perfect. Probably Mum’s last holiday because of advanced Alzheimer’s. She just loves the sea.<br/><br/>Mum struggled with the stairs but we managed.

Perfect views and facilities. <br/>To arrive and it be dressed for Christmas was just lovely.<br/><br/>Parking. Although a garage is available, it's not easy if you have a large car. <br/>Details said TV in both rooms.
