  • "We enjoyed the most fabulous family holiday, in a perfect setting, for good walking, access to shops, pubs etc The house comfortably worked for 6 adults, although the twin bedroom was more suited to children."

  • "We have just returned from an amazing 3 night stay at Crab Cottage."

    The Cottage is absolutely gorgeous. We were delighted to be welcomed by Christmas decorations and a beautiful welcome pack. The house was absolutely spotless. The decor is so tasteful and well thought out. We have 3 young children and a dog. There was plenty of space and the cottage felt so homely and cosy. The garden is breathtaking. So quaint with amazing views. The allocated parking area is perfect and easily enough space for 2 cats if needed. One minute walk from the gorgeous beach at Sandsend. We cannot rate this stunning cottage highly enough and we would certainly love to return. It’s a little haven on the gorgeous Yorkshire coast. Thank you for letting us enjoy this special place.

The property

Sitting amidst the beauty of the North York Moors National Park and benefitting from captivating coastal views, Crab Cottage makes a wondrous base for a getaway to this desirable destination of Yorkshire.

Be charmed by the stone-fronted exterior, with a front patio yard to bask in the sun on the bench as you soak in the quaint setting.

Step inside to discover the delightful décor, with a splash of sea blue to reflect your coastal setting, and brimming with character with its beamed ceilings and hardwood floors.

Locate the open-plan living space, where you can unwind on an armchair and enjoy meals together at the stylish dining table in the heart of the room.

Rustle up heart-warming dishes in the capacious kitchen area, boasting an AGA cooker and electric hob to cater to your culinary desires.

Escape to the intimate setting of the snug room, gently heated by a toasty woodburning stove; here you can lounge on the sumptuous corner sofa and perch your cup of tea on the quirky coffee table.

A self-catered stay has never been easier with the handy utility room hosting a washing machine to keep your holiday wardrobe fresh and a dishwasher to keep the place neat and tidy!

As the sun begins to set over the sea, retire upstairs to the first floor to rest and rejuvenate in the stunning bathroom, either indulge in a leisurely soak in the tub or enjoy a refreshing rinse in the shower.

When sleep calls, choose between three adorned bedrooms, white-washed with bold feature walls, including a double with en-suite shower room, a double and a lovely twin bedroom, all with matching furniture to house your belongings.

In the morning, enjoy a steaming cup of coffee in the large garden to wake-up with a salty-sea breeze and admire the scenery.

Sandsend is a pet-friendly holiday location with a glorious beach welcoming your canine companion, as well as plenty of amenities for your self-catering stay, including a local shop and eateries.

When you're not embarking on a journey into the natural beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, take a trip to Whitby where history-lovers can visit the gothic ruins of Whitby Abbey, whilst climbing the 199 Steps provides spectacular panoramic views, or take to the family-friendly sandy beach for picnics and sandcastle building.

Staithes is an unmissable seaside village resting on a hillside with picture-perfect coastal views; follow winding cobbled streets dotted with 18th-century cottages, trek paths along the Yorkshire cliff tops and go hunting through rock pools on the small sandy beach.

For a historic, postcard-perfect fishing village, travel to Robin Hood's Bay with narrow alleyways full of character, quaint shops and tasty tearooms, alongside the Bay's museum hosting local history and heritage.

Crab Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore the coast and countryside of Yorkshire with your loved ones.

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!
