  • "We had a lovely break in Sea Change."

    We’ve came to see Goth Festival but also to have some time to relax and this house is perfect for this. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and fantastic wi-fi. Garden is secured and dogs are safe to roam around. Very close to a beach and shops. Lots of sight seeing and places to visit. This house was just perfect for us.

  • "Lovely house in quiet location which was perfect for our week away."

    Kitchen was fully equipped, house was warm and comfortable. Garden was fully enclosed for our dog so didn't have to worry about letting him outside. Thank you to the owners who came round with battery powered lights after we contacted them when the village suffered a power cut which ended up lasting nearly 6 hours. Weather was lovely and we had some great walks from the house and surrounding areas. Overall a great week away

  • "Highly recommended."

    Quiet location. Very convenient for Sandsend, Whitby and access to the moors. The park-and-ride is a 1 minute drive away from the cottage and was still operating in October; it was an inexpensive way to get into Whitby and saved parking stress. Lovely walks in the area. The house is spacious, comfortable and well equipped with lovely garden areas. The garage was really useful too. Communication with the hosts was easy and there are good instructions in the house for all the appliances. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

  • "It was perfect for us."

    Just a short hop to the beach, nice and quiet. A handy walk just down the road for our dog. The neighbour did get our dog barking as he was in the front garden a lot, but we tried to keep her as quiet as possible. Handy for Whitby and the bays. Would highly recommend we had a great stay.

  • "Another excellent holiday at this quiet, well located property."

    We were also very lucky with the weather as the sun shone every day. It was lovely to be able to sit outside for breakfast and after dinner in the peace and quiet. Looking forward to another stay next year which will be our fourth at this wonderful cottage.

  • "A delightful cottage spacious and comfortable with plenty of room for our family."

    The kitchen had everything we needed and the garden was especially appreciated by our little dog who enjoyed wandering out of one door and in the other. The village is peaceful and well placed for getting to Sandsend and Whitby all in all an excellent holiday spot.

  • "Great house in an amazing location."

    We had everything we needed and our dog loved the enclosed garden. We were only about 15/20 minutes drive away from all the places we wanted to visit, including Staithes, Robin Hoods Bay and Whitby. The beach at Sandsend is only a 15 minute walk and you can take dogs. We definitely recommend eating at The Heart Inn, Sandsend, the food is amazing and the staff there are very welcoming

  • "Very comfortable stay in a small village."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean with great countryside views to the front and rear. It is a very light and airy house. Quiet area; slept soundly. Very well equipped. Nice touches like hand-made curtains/cushions. Dog-friendly garden filled with attractive foliage. Great to come back and relax in front of log burner after exploring local areas. Would definitely rebook.

  • "Most windows blown so view compromised."

    No blind in kitchen window making it unbearable when in their cooking evening meal as sun blazes in. Only 7 pegs for a family of 6. The rug in lounge is a trip hazard as so thin and has no sticky backing for laminate flooring. The vacuum cleaner was absolutely full of other people’s dirt and dust (not nice). Inside cupboards dirty. One saucepan needs replacing.

    We welcome feedback and any way we can improve the holiday experience for our guests. I sincerely hope this did not spoil your stay. While we cant immediately act on the comments with regards to the windows we certainly will keep this in mind for future planned developments. We will certainly address the other areas as soon as possible by adjusting our cleaning and checking regime. Thank you. Property Owner

    The village is very peaceful and an ideal base for exploring North Yorkshire. The property was perfect, well maintained, clean and very comfortable with plenty of entertainments (books, games, DVDs, smart TV & great wi-fi) in case of bad weather! The welcome pack was very much appreciated and it made a nice change to have a secure garden for the furry one to enjoy. Would definitely stay here again - thank you!!

    The home was spotless when we arrived and we had the perfect holiday here. We didn’t want to leave. There was everything we needed already in the home, making our lives so much easier. It’s close to the beach which is where we spent many of our days and not far from lots of other beautiful places. We are already planning our next stay!

    01miles away . after trying to go we found out that the pub had closed down in March this year & it was going to be a B&B . we then found out the nearest pub was2.5miles away with no public transport from the village i had to 1 get a taxi both ways or 2 take the car, What else is strange is that 2 this date Sykes still have this pub on its page. Apart from that the cottage was really nice .

    Thank you for your feedback. The pub has been opened on and off periodically . We have found it is closed completely, the description has now been amended. There is a park and ride just 1.5 miles from the property. We are glad you enjoyed the cottage. Property Owner

The property

This charming, semi-detached cottage of Sea Change rests in Newholm near Whitby, North Yorkshire.

It is within North York Moors National Park so a family of six can enjoy great walks and explore the countryside while also being within reach of the coast.

The first thing you will notice when you enter the home is the wonderful living room, with two sofas and a TV to keep everyone entertained; the woodburning stove adds a warm glow to the room.

After unwinding for a little bit, head to the kitchen/diner, a pleasant space offering stylish, white cabinets with wooden worktops which host a good selection of appliances to make tasty meals with.

Once the chef of the group has fixed up a delicious dinner, enjoy it at the kitchen's table, which seats four, or as a larger affair at the living/dining room's six-seater table.

As day turns to night, proceed upstairs to find three wonderful bedrooms; a double with a vanity area, another double with ample storage for your belongings, and a twin room.

The bedrooms all rest near a fabulous, family bathroom, which not only features slate tiling but offers a bath with shower over, where soothing soaks can be savoured.

One of the property's highlights is certainly its large, enclosed garden, where alfresco meals can be enjoyed under the trellis on the patio, whilst the kids play on the lawn!

Treat yourself with a visit to the local tea room, Penny Clare, where you can even indulge in a craft gin, however, you can embark on a short drive into the town of Whitby to come across a range of welcoming eateries and well-stocked shops settled in one handy location, too!

Whitby is also home to a beautiful harbour and an iconic abbey, both of which are waiting to be explored; venture down the 199 Steps from the abbey and tour the fascinating museum of Whitby, or unwind on the town's gorgeous beach, with Sandsend Beach being just a peaceful stroll away across fields via a footpath.

For even more coastal fun, be sure to travel to Scarborough, a Victorian resort with plenty to offer, from the sights of Scarbrough Castle and Peasholm Park to the breathtaking ride of the Scarborough North Bay Railway and the vibrant beaches the town backs onto.

Head inland to spend the day in Pickering, where the remains of Pickering Castle and tours around the Beck Isle Museum, along with access to the renowned amusement park of Flamingo Land Resort!

If the outdoors is more your thing, be sure to make the most of the North York Moors National Park's amazing sights, or embark on a hike along The Cleveland Way to find more of the coastal delights resting along North Yorkshire's shores.

A stay to remember awaits at Sea Change.
