This delightful cottage is set in a tranquil coastal village close to Whitby and is ideal for couples or small families looking for a cosy place to stay, just around the corner from a sandy beach.
This traditional seaside cottage is set in the heart of Sandsend near Whitby. With its cosy wood burner for the evenings, sheltered stone patio for al fresco lunch in the warmer months and a beautiful beach just seconds away, this is the perfect coastal cottage for couples and small families alike. The ambience here is elegant and peaceful, with lots of little touches giving it a nautical twist.
Like so many of the old fishermen's cottages on the Yorkshire Coast, the house is tucked away up a quiet alleyway with a handful of other period properties. This lovely little cottage sleeps four people and is perfectly suited for two adults and two children. There is an additional en-suite double bedroom housed within a separate annexe in the garden, so it will sleep more if you're happy to share the cosy living area.
Inside the property, you'll find an atmospheric open-plan living space home to the lounge, kitchen and dining area. The lounge has two comfy sofas to curl up on and the wood burner keeps everything nice and toasty. It's hard to beat coming home from a walk along the beach and settling down by a real fire with a glass of something indulgent. For your evening entertainment, there's a TV and Wi-Fi is also provided. Or you could just switch everything off, open the window and listen to the sound of the waves and gulls calling high overhead.
With its solid wood units and open aspect, the kitchen is a pleasant place to rustle up a hearty Yorkshire breakfast. For lunch or dinner, how about some locally caught fresh seafood from one of Whitby's fishmongers. Settle down around the generous dining table to enjoy. Seating up to six when pulled out from the wall, this table is made for making memories around. The kitchen facilities include a gas hob, oven, fridge with an ice-box and a washing machine too.
Make your way upstairs to find a double bedroom, twin room and family bathroom. The master bedroom is surprisingly spacious and features a king-size metal bed. Plenty of storage available too with a built-in wardrobe. Next door is a bunk room, perfect for younger kids. Please note, due to the compact nature of this little room there is limited storage. The family bathroom is bright and cheerful. There's a bath for those that love a hot soak every evening, and a shower over the bath.
The additional bedroom is set at the end of the patio garden in a separate annexe. It comes complete with a double metal bed as well as an en-suite shower room with WC. It's perfect for adults who want their own space. Please note, this bedroom is not suitable for children as its separate from the main house.
The patio garden sits directly opposite the house across the quiet footpath. It offers a generous stone patio and is enclosed with a stone wall and white picket gate. It's completely sheltered from the coastal breezes and offers a quiet spot for lunch.
Parking is available roadside nearby on a first come, first served basis and there's also a large carpark just a few hundred yards away. Please note, that the original old steps up to the cottage can be uneven in places where the sea has weathered them over the years.
