Overview

About the property

House in Sandsend, Whitby, Yorkshire, England - 100 Metres From the beach

The Pavilion in Sandsend is a large detached holiday home with 5 double bedrooms (3 doubles and two twin rooms) sleeping 10 people. Each bedroom has its own shower or bathroom with two ground floor bedrooms (one of which with its own wheelchair friendly wet room) offering good disabled access. All front rooms have sea views and look out across a large lawn, perfect for children’s' games and barbecues. The house is in a quiet location away from the main road but only 100 metres walk to the beach and a short walk to the village pub, cafés, restaurants and shop. There are 4 dedicated parking spaces. Sandsend is a very popular coastal village 2 miles North of the bustling town of Whitby, famous for its connections with Captain Cook and Dracula. The house makes a perfect base for walking holidays with its proximity to the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and the Cleveland Way and also a great place to celebrate a birthday or a reunion with friends and family. We welcome up to one dog (by prior arrangement for a small additional charge). Our changeover day is generally Saturday (and we cannot be flexible on this in school holidays) so unfortunately any request for a 7 night booking to start on a Friday for example is likely to be declined. Outside school holiday periods though we welcome short break bookings of 3 or 4 nights typically starting on a Friday or Monday.

*Please note: 'Book now' is an optional payment feature of Owners Direct. We are more than happy for you to book directly with us. Please feel free to make an enquiry or phone us before you make your decision.*

Located at the foot of Lythe bank Sandsend is a picturesque village with cottages set against a backdrop of cliffs and two meandering streams which lead to the sandy beach.

The beach featured as one of Britain's 20 best beaches by Telegraph Travel in July 2011, Sandsend beach is "Set against a backdrop of grassy cliffs, where the wide sweep of beach from Whitby ends, this stretch is quieter and prettier than its famous neighbour. Children play in the little becks that flow across the sand and ducks waddle across the green in charming Sandsend village. This is a great place for fossil hunting at low tide."

The village is served by a local shop, Sandsend Stores, and Tides Beach Shop (with surf school) (email: sandsendsurfschool@hotmail.co.uk; ). There are also excellent restaurants (such as Estbek House with its award winning restaurant and extensive fine wine selection, www.estbekhouse.co.uk), The Hart Inn which is a traditional pub with good food, teashops and an art gallery.

About 2 miles to the south is the historic fishing town of Whitby: dominated by the cliff top ruins of its 13th century Abbey and famous for its connections with Captain Cook and Dracula. There are many good restaurants there and numerous very good fish and chips shops including the celebrated Magpie Cafe. There is a good golf course on the cliffs between Sandsend and Whitby. Further to the south is Robin Hoods Bay and the lovely Victorian seaside town of Scarborough (home to the Stephen Joseph Theatre where Alan Ayckbourn premieres all his plays).

A visit to the area would not be complete without a trip to the North Yorkshire Moors (the spectacular scenery was featured on Richard Wilson's 'Great British Drives' programme). The NYMR steam railway operates between Whitby and Pickering taking in some tremendous scenery which featured in the popular television series "Heartbeat" and the James Herriot books.

About Anne Goode

Though from Yorkshire I now live in London but get back to the area often as we now own 3 holiday properties on the North Yorkshire coast. It's always a pleasure coming back and enjoying the beautiful scenery and genuine friendliness of the locals.

Anne Goode purchased this house in 2012

Why Anne Goode chose Yorkshire Moors and Coast

Coming from Scarborough I have always loved the Yorkshire coast and was searching for a long time in the Whitby area for the right property to become available. When we found the Pavilion we realized this was perfect as it offered a quiet location with sea views, dedicated parking (which is a real asset in both Whitby and Sandsend) and the convenience of 5 shower/bathrooms which gives ourselves and our guests the luxury of private facilities to go with each room.

What makes this house unique

It's lovely to look out from any of the front rooms and see and hear the sea. We love taking a stroll down to the beach and when the tide is out having a leisurely walk along the strand to Whitby. Sandsend is a delightful village which retains an old fashioned charm that makes it hugely popular with visitors old and new.

Coast/Beach:

Distances:

Whitby: 3 miles

Scarborough: 20 miles

Further Details:

The house is walking distance from an excellent local pub, 3 great cafés and a village shop. Sandsend also has a highly rated restaurant and there are supermarkets, banks and numerous restaurants and cafés in Whitby which is a short drive away or can be visited by bus.

Whitby is dominated by the cliff top ruins of its 13th century Abbey and famous for its connections with Captain Cook and Dracula. There are many good restaurants there and numerous very good fish and chips shops including the celebrated Magpie Café. There is a good golf course on the cliffs between Sandsend and Whitby. Further to the south is Robin Hoods Bay and the lovely Victorian seaside town of Scarborough (home to the Stephen Joseph Theatre where Alan Ayckbourn premières all his plays).

The NYMR steam railway operates between Whitby and Pickering taking in some tremendous scenery which featured in the popular television series "Heartbeat" and the James Herriot books.

Sandsend is also a great base from which to walk along the Cleveland Way.

Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful property for a large extended family to enjoy some real peace and quiet whilst being close to a beautiful beach which was great for the kids. The house is very well equipped with everything you need, beds are very comfortable and property was generally clean. Quite a few minor breakages were noted on arrival, however a useful notebook provided for recording these. Some crockery needed washing. If we had to comment on one downside, it would be that this is the first property in over 25 years of renting holiday homes that hasn't had the making of at least a cup of tea on arrival, as most provide a small welcome pack.

Overall though were very happy with the accommodation, and would definitely consider booking it again at a future date. Anne, the owner provided really useful information and was very prompt in contacting us afterwards and the good housekeeping deposit was returned promptly.

Sandsend is a beautiful location, and it is well worth walking through the village, the beach is beautiful and visits to Runswick Bay and Saltwick Bay were enjoyed by everyone, with plenty of fossil finds. Falling Foss tea rooms just through Ruswarp is also well worth visiting and there are many woodland walks there to enjoy.

Comfy, spacious and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

The Pavilion is located in the idyllic village of Sandsend, which stands alone as a family holiday location, but the excellent public transport links make it an excellent base for seaside towns like Whitby, the North York Moors and many pretty villages.

The house is spacious and very well equipped, particularly for families with children. The owner is considerate and helpful and seems to have thought of everything to make your holiday as smooth running as possible.
