  • "Lovely cottage as described ."

    Dish washer needed attention as it smelled and shower drain was blocked . But everything else was great

  • "Hi - I have been booking cottages with York’s coastal Cottages for years."

    For the first time, I found cottage slightly lacking. I was surprised at the lack of anti bac spray and hand soap. I don’t recall ever having to bring these items from home before and given the times we are now living in, would have expected these to be provided.

  • "The cottage was clean, cosy & well appointed to a very high standard."

    The beds were comfortable & the facilities were more than adequate for our party. It’s location is perfect, five minutes from the beach. The split level patio area is good but children will need supervision. Our only problem was that on arrival both wheelie bins, recycling & household waste were full. This should have been sorted by the pre- rental cleaning team. That being the only fault we would happily return to Appletree Cottage.

    The kitchen is very well equipped for those wishing to self cater. The icing on the cake is the tiered garden,with lovely views from the top. I would stay again in a heartbeat,

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 offering something for everyone!
