  • "The cottage is in a good position relative to the beach and the few shops and the pub."

    It’s warm and comfortable with a plentiful supply of logs for the stove. The cottage is small , more suitable for one or two people. Wi-Fi and mobile reception were excellent throughout the week I stayed. The kitchen is very small but has most things you would need. However there is no freezer or freezer compartment/ice box, just a fridge. There’s also no microwave. There’s a lovely shower room (no bath) with underfloor heating. Note that if you’re looking for the washing machine it’s in the shower room under the sink in the cupboard. As noted with other reviews parking is a challenge. There is no parking at the cottage itself. The cottage could benefit from curtains or blinds at the lounge window to offer some privacy as it is easy to see in from the outside. I slept well despite the the two storms that hit the are. The main bedroom is nice and comfortable. There’s a second smaller bedroom with bunk beds. To the front of the cottage is a small enclosed garden, there’s a useful hosepipe for washing down dogs and boot cleaning. Overall I enjoyed my stay.

    The cottage has a cosy feel, and had everything we needed as a family,who brought a dog along. Will be back again. Only a short drive to whitby or for those willing a nice walk. Thank you for making our holiday perfect.

    The heaters were off and attempted a contact number to gain some knowledge on programing the heaters to warm up but got no responce.Finally got the stove going and managed to warm through.Found half a stale loaf in a cupboard.Kitchen shelf unit inside corner unit was broken and a window lock in bathroom was loose. Otherwise everything else was very good.

  • "The bed in the double room was very uncomfortable as you could feel the bed frame under the mattress."

    We also appreciate it is a tight space to put a double bed but it would’ve better without the frame at the end of the bed as you can’t stretch your legs without hurting your toes on the frame it would also be easier to get out of the bed by opening up the space at the bottom of the bed. The mirror in the bathroom was surrounded by cobwebs and spiders, the dining area could do with a lick of paint due to wear and tear and there needs to be a curtain in the lounge as the window faces the pub car park and you have to walk across the lounge to the downstairs bathroom in the night. The cottage is cute but much if the furniture is style over substance for practical use. Also four mugs for up to four guests? One mug had a huge crack in it, also no teapot.

  • "We enjoyed the location of the property."

    Parking can be a bit of a problem sometimes it was a little way from the property, we were lucky my husband was speaking to the lady next door and she kindly let us park on her drive as she wasnt using it but if you have mobility problems it might be a problem. It was quite tight to get to the property between two buildings as we have a larger vehicle. It would be useful to have a folder with how to use appliances and heating and useful local phone numbers for vets doctors , nearest hospital and places to eat also the door frames are quite low my husband caught his head twice smaller than i was expecting. Just across the road from the beach and cafe and also good pub next door which serves good food

  • "Lovely comfortable cottage in a perfect location for the beach."

    Nice welcome gift of cake and biscuits on arrival and everything we needed for our stay. Very clean and tidy and nicely decorated . Lovely having a log burner as the temperature dropped in the evenings. Property is ideal for families with older kids as there isn’t a bathtub, most younger children I know don’t like to shower but for older kids and adults there is a good wet room to wash off all that sand. Good Wi-Fi signal on ground floor but weaker signal upstairs which wasn’t a problem. Our dog loved having his own outdoor space which was a bonus for us and one of the reasons we booked this property. All in all we had a great stay and wouldn’t hesitate going back to Stonewall.

    Absolutely beautiful cottage very comfortable and really enjoyed staying perfect for the beach and a good base for the area the facilities around ie:- pubs, chip shops and cafes were all very good quality The only thing was the parking sometimes it was a bit away from the cottage and had to pay if you couldn't find a spot Also could do with some information on how to use some of the equipment in the cottage ie:- fire, washer, chocolate maker if there was I couldn't find it

We was originally going to stay in Whitby but so glad we didn't. The only downside was, we had to leave, we will definitely be coming back to Stonewall in the future.

About the location

SANDSEND

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. 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 offering something for everyone!
