  • "This was our 4th holiday in beautiful Sandsend, and our 1st staying in Chine Cottage, the other places were not up to standard so I was very pleased with how modern and clean it was."

    We would not hesitate to return and hopefully will be back again in 2025.

  • "Chine Cottage is just perfect, obviously not for wheelchair users or people who struggle with stairs."

    We love it's position, the views and comfy beds, the under floor heating makes the cottage warm and inviting to return to after a day out. We have been twice before and wouldnt hesitate to return, dates allowing. Whitby is walkable and well worth the effort.

  • "We loved our stay at Chine Cottage and in Sandsend and would definitely stay again."

    Our only small complaint was that we found that the bedrooms were too warm for sleeping and the thermostat control was difficult to alter. Otherwise everything about the cottage was excellent.

  • "Disappointed there was no CHRISTMAS tree in,only one lamp in the lounge and ..."

    Disappointed there was no CHRISTMAS tree in,only one lamp in the lounge and didnt feel homely in there when staying in at night in winter's bad weather, kitchen dining table had plastic tablecloth which slummed down the area as the units and appliances were top of the range and fabulous, the back room to my mind was awful and not welcoming or cosy enough at all, lamps and cushions or even conservatory furniture to bring it up to date, rather old fashioned, wifi not powerful enough in fact couldn't make or receive calls at all on our mobiles which is good if we CHOOSE NOT TO RECEIVE OR MAKE PHONE CALLS as we're on holiday but we needed to make an emergency call and couldn't connect until travelling especially into Whitby, will stay again as the property ideally situated and immaculately clean just basically needs finishing touches to enhance it

  • "A well designed and well equipped holiday house with modern fittings."

    Beds were comfy and the two bedrooms at the back of the house were very quiet. The house is ideally situated for walks on the beach. Off road parking was a bonus as Sandsend was very busy. One minor issue was that there was no non slip mat in the bath of the main bedroom so for safety we used the shower of the third bedroom on the top floor. Unfortunately the local general shop had been closed for some months but was expected to be reopening late Autumn 2023.

    The kitchen was well equipped, it’s very modern and so clean (thank the cleaner !) loved the use of garage. Location is amazing! only grumble was the mattress being so soft ,that I felt I was at an angle inwards towards the centre. We didn’t sleep v.well because of this. All in all , a fabulous weeks stay! Thank you

    The frying pan provided was unusable all the non stick coating is coming off. Wi-Fi wasn't working as BT had let them down this was a disappointment but it was up to Sykes' to inform me which wasn't done. Apart from the above mentioned negatives: A great location opposite the beach and close to amenities could not be faulted. The kitchen area was under used as the lounge was more inviting. A well stocked kitchen with all crockery, utensils and cookware available.

    The situation, outlook and local facilities make it our ideal holiday stay. A couple of minor points. It should not be the job of the incoming guests to have empty the water reservoir and clean out the dispenser on the washing machine ( some one had tried to use a dishwasher tablet!!). The bottom shelf in the fridge was broken so when the milk and wine were placed in it, the shelf gave way and tipped the lot onto the kitchen floor. Fortunately nothing broke. The kitchen sink hot tap is still dripping.

    Decorated toca very high standard with high end furnishings....however, I felt I lacked that personal touch, with the feeling it was half finished on the interior styling. I’ve stayed in similar properties where it really felt like a home from home. We didn’t spend much time in the cottage due to the glorious weather, however when we did return, we felt unable to truly kick back and relax and with 2 teenagers, only one tv was an issue. However, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property and would love to return one day.

  • "This is a lovely cottage with amazing views."

    Bedrooms are well appointed and beds are comfy. The whole cottage was spotless. The only downside was minor in that there was not a roasting tin and being Christmas that proved difficult. Plus there weren’t serving dishes or gravy boats. The downstairs ‘ lounge’ is not a lounge, it has a sofa bed in it and is somewhere to take off shoes which is handy. The WiFi is in this room. Having stayed in other process comparable cottages I have come to expect these things. The driveway is exceptionally steep and could be a problem to some people. Despite all the negatives the cottage was warm and cosy, the location is excellent, I would certainly recommend to anyone.

  • "We would most definitely recommend this Cottage at Sandsend."

    Do be aware that there are steep stairs over three floors. But you will need to go up and down these to work off the delicious fish and chips from Whitby, the breakfasts over the road in the cafe, pork pie from the village store and the button popping meals from the (local - 2 minutes!) away pub. The Cottage is a perfect well equipped base for touring North Yorkshire, that is if you can bear to drag yourself away from the amazing views of the sea from every front window. And at night, if you leave your bedroom window open, you can be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. Beats the rumble of city traffic any day!

    The home was very comfortable, clean and furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Lovely views from kitchen-diner, first floor sitting room and top floor double. The main road through Sandsend runs in front of the house but the traffic is not that heavy and by mid-evening almost non-existent. Sandsend has minimal facilities, one shop, a couple of cafes and a restaurant so it’s not teeming with tourists, just people who appreciate a nice long beach to walk on. Would thoroughly recommend this holiday home!!

The sitting room is a comfortable place to relax and benefits from French doors which lead out to a patio area, perfect for getting some fresh air, after a lovely evening.

Take the stairs up to the next floor and a second lounge is elevated by beach views, which you can admire as the day goes by.

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!

Note: This property does not accept children or infants under 10 years old.

This property offers the following short breaks:
