Last but not least, this property is situated at a fantastic location at the heart of Sandsend, one of the prettiest and most popular villages along the Yorkshire coast.

Tucked away in the side streets, up some steps and behind the main promenade, you will find this cottage's hiding place. Step inside to discover a light-filled, spacious seaside property. On the ground-floor level, you'll find an open-plan living area, home to the living room, dining area and kitchen, all blessed with a cheerful and lively ambience.

In the living room you'll find ample comfortable seating for you and your guests to sink into after a long satisfying day of touring including a leather sofa and chaise. A flame-effect electric fire keeps everything warm and cosy on those coastal nights, and there's a TV for your entertainment with several subscription channels available.

Set in the beautiful and very popular village of Sandsend near Whitby, you can be walking along the beach within minutes of leaving the house. Tucked away behind the main promenade in the side streets, this charming Yorkshire cottage is also just a few miles from some of the most stunning scenery in the North York Moors.

Sandsend is set on the beautiful North Yorkshire coastline; a heady mix of rugged cliff tops, peaceful bays and pretty fishing villages. With long sandy beaches and all the traditional seaside trimmings of yesteryear, you can indulge in a classic English seaside holiday. That's not to say it's stuck in the past, in fact the Yorkshire Coast's villages and towns combine the traditional with the contemporary effortlessly, with trinket shops and tea rooms sitting alongside up-market restaurants and champagne bars. A gorgeous little seaside village with its handsome promenade, long stretch of beach, several excellent eating options and world class day spa, you could happily spend your whole holiday without leaving Sandsend.

This charming holiday home is also just 3 miles from the beautiful town of Whitby. With its wonderful seaside heritage, excellent restaurants, independent shops and host of bars and cafes along its medieval streets, it has so much to offer the discerning holidaymaker. It's also well worth striking out to sample some of the other coastal villages nearby. The village is a maze of cobbled streets and ‘higgledy-piggledy’ houses which seem to tumble down towards the sea. Robin Hood's Bay (8 miles) is one of the most popular coastal locations in Yorkshire, or the UK for that matter. Also visit, Staithes (7.5 miles) and Runswick Bay (5.5 miles) are also all within easy driving distance, each with their own unique charm.

This property is personally managed by Phil.

An absolutely beautiful cottage in a lovely, quiet location. It's a 2 minute walk to the beach, a great cafe and a local store for basics all within the same walking distance. Further cafes and pubs / restaurants within easy walking distance. Internally the cottage is well furnished and appointed. Lovely kitchen with all the necessities. Massive TVRead more for a relaxed evening! Didn't really use the garden as we visited for the New Year but it would be lovely in summer. Beds really comfy and lovely ensuite shower in top floor bedroom. Recommended and we'll be back. Hide

We (6 adults and 2 babies) have just finished a wonderful Monday to Friday mini holiday at Appletree Cottage and rate it very highly. The location in Sandsend was perfect for us, being local to the fabulous fishing town of Whitby and having ready access to a perfect beach. The house is apparently part of an old hunting lodge and located in an elevaRead moreted position just off the Sandsend seafront. The house was spotlessly clean and the facilities were excellent, especially in the kitchen. Each of the 3 bedrooms were well appointed with very comfortable beds and cotton sheets.The owner met us on arrival and was very welcoming and keen for us to have a great holiday and make the most of the facilities in the house and locally within Sandsend and Whitby. All in all a very successful holiday made special by the lovely accommodation. Hide

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
