This charming, semi-detached stone cottage is nestled in an idyllic tranquil setting, locally known as The Valley, in Sandsend village.
Overlooking a most delightful, traditional village green, complete with ducks, the property is just perfect to enjoy a seaside holiday on the long, sweeping sandy beach in this quaint little village, just 2.5 miles from popular Whitby.
Offering warm and welcoming accommodation, there is a galley kitchen with a small dining area to one end.
The cosy sitting room has a gas stove and comfortable seating, with pleasant views over the valley, while upstairs there are three country-style bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside, is a small but sheltered rear terraced garden, a sunny spot for a morning coffee!
Access to the beach is a five minute walk down the steps and along a gravelled footpath, where there are delightful beach-side cafes, an art gallery, local inn and village shop.
At one end of the beach, a little beck meanders into the sea, where ducks congregate and children can paddle safely, while further along the headland are rock pools and fossil hunting opportunities.
A wonderful hour’s walk is to head along the sands to Whitby, with its famous abbey, historic harbour, cobbled streets and market square.
Explore the wide range of independent shops, excellent restaurants, tea rooms and pubs, or take a boat trip along the dramatic coastline.
With the stunning scenery of the North York Moors to discover and fabulous walking along the cliff tops on the Cleveland Way, this pretty little holiday home will appeal to all.
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!
