  • "Fabulous property!"

    Excellent position in Sandsend. Stylish interior yet comfortable, with everything you need and a few personal touches thrown in which we appreciated. Would definitely recommend this holiday home and look forward to staying again.

  • "Very clean,comfortable house,smaller than it looks in the photos though."

    Great location.Only drawback for my party was the basement kitchen ,too many steps! ,perhaps not a good one for the elderly!.Lovely sea views and handy for all the amenities

  • "Four poster bed needs new mattress as I could feel the springs and had to put a duvet on top of the mattress."

    Insufficient candle lights to use in a power cut. Needs torches. Extra parking space was helpful. Cottage was chilly as heating didn't seem to come on much.

    Guest satisfaction is very important to us so it’s disheartening to get negative comments - especially based on inaccuracies; also we contact guests in advance with our 24/7 number to use if they need any assistance but we didn’t hear from this guest until this post-stay review. We invest in quality mattresses and our guest book has comments about the comfortable beds. We can only assume this happened during the guest’s stay and we will replace the mattress immediately. We understand the village had an electricity failure on the Thursday night before the guest departed the next morning; there are three large battery operated candles plus a torch and spare batteries. The central heating is incredibly effective - it can feel positively tropical - the guest simply had to increase the thermostat dial as per the clear instructions in the guest folder. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our family holiday in Sandsend and the Beach House was just lovely."

    The house is in a great position near the beach with sea views. We had no problem parking our three cars. The owners were really helpful and the Beach House is beautifully decorated, clean and had everything we needed. Sandsend has plenty to offer - beach, walks, gift shops, general store, cafes and a lovely friendly pub plus it is a great base for exploring the area. I would definitely return to The Beach House - highly recommended.

  • "The beach house lived up to and exceeded our expectations."

    Warm & cosy on arrival. Clean. We all loved the style chosen for the decor. The house worked so well for us. The property was packed with Everything you could need for a self catering holiday. A previous review nearly put me off booking, which would have been a shame to have missed such a lovely house in an amazing location.

    Thank you for your kind words; we are so pleased you liked the house, the decor and the location. We do hope you will return! Property Owner

  • "I wouldn’t call the house luxurious or gold star."

    It’s tired and needs a bit of TLC. To say that such a fuss is made about leaving the place as you found it, there were dead spiders and daddy long legs all over, hairs in the bath and we struggled to find a clean glass! Parking is a nightmare! Struggled to park on the street and came back to the cottage twice to find someone (from shore view house) had parked in the designated parking spot around the corner! I had to pay for parking on the coastal road. This is not acceptable. The outside seating area is dirty with dead plants and not welcoming on arrival or to sit in. I can what they’re trying to do with the place with the fixtures and fittings, and the sea view ( from three windows not every window) is beautiful. The beds are comfortable and bedding and towels are clean. We were just disappointed overall and would definitely not stay again.

    As the owners, we are surprised to read this comment as it is at odds with how the cottage was left, when we checked it. We take rigorous steps to ensure our cottage is beautifully presented so that our guests have a wonderful stay with us. Our housekeepers take great pride in cleaning the property to an exceptional standard, plus we personally check the property when they finish. All cutlery, china and glassware is put through the dishwasher when the housekeepers arrive, so it’s sparkling for the next guests. During lockdown, we invested heavily in the property with new carpets, new furnishings, etc., and had it redecorated throughout to ensure it is luxurious and maintains Five Star Gold standard. There is private parking for two cars and full details are advised in advance and in the guest folder. The designated parking spot the guest mentions is for the next door property our parking spaces are beyond those and were available. Parking shouldn’t therefore have been an issue. And there ARE sea views from most of the windows, especially the main ones - the two double bedrooms, the sitting room and breakfast room - which look out over the beach and out to sea.

    The only thing that is marginally annoying is there are no suitable glasses for small children - a few plastic glasses wouldn’t go amiss. Otherwise it’s a great location and easy to use

Ideally situated for exploring this beautiful part of Yorkshire, the local area hosts an abundance of activity so you can be sure to get the best out of both the countryside and the coast. From the nearby North York Moors to its Blue Flag beaches, there's something here for every interest and time of year. Amongst its many attractions, Whitby holds a charming atmosphere, home to winding streets and hidden alleys, where you can find a wide selection of eateries and shops scattered amongst them. Take a trip to the picturesque harbour and lighthouse to watch the sun set, or get involved in some whale watching or a coastal cruise to watch the creatures up close.
