  • "The house was absolutely stunning and comfortable and we particularly loved the sea views from every room."

    Whilst it took some time for the underfloor heating to reach the upper floor, it was sufficiently warm after a day or so. We will certainly return and look forward to enjoying those wonderful views. The deck also provided a great place for morning coffee and evening drinks!

  • "A fabulous, well positioned and well appointed house."

    It was spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly want. An excellent bus service runs from the bottom of the road providing easy access into Whitby and ensuring that none of us had to worry about who was driving and therefore not drinking! As three couples, we had three cars and there was plenty of space to park outside of the house. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week.

    Thank you for your feedback we hope you enjoyed your stay at Shore View. We are sorry you failed to find the cutlery drawer that is in the kitchen it does have a complete set of 20 of each item, it is a drawer within a drawer. helped you locate it straight away. Property Owner

  • "Shore View exceeded expectations!"

    A fantastic location, close to the beach but quiet and peaceful. Great facilities within the house and sea views from every room were such a treat. We sat out on the deck constantly and the car port it provided was a bonus. On street parking for the second car of our group was never a problem. A great holiday and would certainly stay here again.

  • "The property has been fitted out to a high standard, but unfortunately this was marred by the simple lack of someone checking it over to make sure all was in order before our arrival."

    To list some of the faults that we encountered: 1. on arrival, we found that 5 of the 8 downlighters in the kitchen had failed, meaning that I immediately had to go out and buy replacement bulbs so that we could see to eat. 2. the toilet seat in the master en-suite is loose, and slides to the side. 3. one shower had been left dripping, meaning that the bathmat (left in the shower) was soaking wet. 4. when I tried to dry the bathmat, I found that the tumble-dryer was not working because the condensed water tank was full and the fluff filter was blocked. So I had to spend precious holiday time carrying out basic maintenance on the dryer. 5. the gas fire does not work because the battery in the remote is flat, and it has no other controls. 6. one dining chair was missing. The replacement that was provided 2 days later was tatty and out of keeping with the property. 7. the towel rail radiators would appear to need bleeding, since they all have cold areas towards the top; also the one on the 1st floor drips at the valve. One point for the future safety of guests, especially the elderly or infirm, is that the shower bases are rather slippery. It would be a good idea to provide a non-slip finish and install grab handles. Also it would be a good idea if the bathroom vents had shutters, because the north wind whistles through them at present, making the bathrooms chilly. Finally, to describe the property as having a "small courtyard garden" is an exaggeration. It is merely a path about 1.5 metres long with a few flagstones at the side. No way can that be called a "garden"!

  • "Having contacted you over two weeks prior to our stay to request a cot and highchair be ready for us at the cottage, and you emailing me to guarantee they would be there, we arrived on the Friday to no cot set up."

    Contacted you immediately but you didn’t get back to us until Saturday afternoon. Had I not prior arranged this it wouldn’t have been such an issue. The cottage could do with a deep clean, especially in the kitchen. The inside of the draws, oven and fridge were all pretty dirty with food left behind. One of the toilets was also left dirty. And lots of dead insects behind the shutters. The cottage is in a wonderful location, great views from all windows and the balcony. The beds and sofas very comfortable. Facilities inside the cottage provided were also great (hairdryers, beach chairs etc). Please update the instructions for the oven as they don’t seem to correspond with the cooker. Feel like on this occasion we were let down by Sykes customer service/housekeeping which was a shame.

  • "As you are aware we did discuss some reservations as to the overall cleanliness at Shore View and we did send along a series of images to validate the points made."

    Didn't particularly spoil the holiday but I feel it is important that both your company and more importantly the owners of the property are aware of the situation Basically surfaces above eye level and anywhere that there was a void at ground level had not been touched (and for some considerable time) Nice convenient location but the above cleaning issues did impact upon our enjoyment of the holiday.

  • "Really enjoyable holiday, spacious and comfortable accommodation with wonderful sea views and perfect location in the heart of the village but set back from the road."

    Facilities excellent. Loved the window seat and balcony. The only minor issue was the cleanliness was a bit hit and miss e.g. the inside of the fridge didn't appeared to have been cleaned. However, appreciate it is a big property and all the bathrooms were spotless. Thank you.

  • "Parking was very difficult on the road."

    Yes, there Was a car port for one car but as the cottage slept six visitors, it is safe to assume the group will have two cars. We has problems on several occassions, certainly not the easy park you advocate. It would have been useful to have an area where washing could dry outdoors. The outside bin was 3/4 full on arrival and we struggled. An email to the office was unresponded to for 2 days and no solution offered.

  • "Shore view is a really great house for anyone wishing to spend a break by the sea."

    Sandsend is a relatively quiet little village with a couple of nice cafes, a pub and a general dealers, but its within easy striking distance of Whitby and other yorkshire coast resorts. The house is in a great location, only 1 minute from a really nice cafe which is open until around 16:00 every day for good coffees and excellent cakes and scones. Parking at the house is good, with one space under the carport and on street parking available right outside. Inside, the house has everything you could need for a self catering break. the kitchen equipment is first class, with everything you need to cook throughout your stay. The three bedrooms are great and all have lovely views out across the bay - the beds are comfortable and the bed linen was lovely. having 3 en-suite shower rooms is a definite advantage and the showers are really excellent with lots of hot water and good water pressure! The utility room is really well equipped with a good washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as iron and ironing board should you need them. The lounge is great and with a couple of nice armchairs its easy to watch the day and the shipping go by out across the bay - perfect way to spend lazy days. This is one of the nicest holiday rentals i've used, and its something i do quite a lot with my wife and our family, so we have plenty of places to compare with. I would definitely look to stay in this house again for a break on the Yorkshire coast, and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    Cooker hood dirty. All three beds had dust & fluff underneath them. Facilities: Ideally one of the bathrooms should have a bath. With regards Keith & Sharon Mitchell

About the location


Whitby 2.5 miles.

Lying on Yorkshire's spectacular Heritage Coastline, Sandsend is the ideal place for a family holiday with its award winning, wide sweeping beaches, rock pools and dramatic cliffs. Indeed this part of the coastline is known locally as the Dinosaur Coast because of the many fossils found here. In the season, beachside stalls offer everything from light snacks and drinks to boats, buckets and spades! Children will enjoy damming the little beck where it crosses the beach to form a freshwater lagoon - great (and safe) for paddling and boating! For the more energetic the village sits on the lovely long distance Cleveland Way Trail, which offers great off-road cycling along the disused coastal railway as well as breathtaking clifftop walks. The National Trust now own the nearby headland, Sandsend Ness, where there is a delightful nature trail in the old quarry pits. A special place with something for everyone!

Wi-Fi: Free Wi-Fi included. Note: There is underfloor heating throughout.
