Set in a stunning location in a gorgeous seaside village on the magnificent North Yorkshire coast, this delightful cottage provides comfortable and cosy accommodation for families and couples alike.

This sweet little three-bedroom holiday cottage is set in the gorgeous seaside village of Sandsend, just a few miles North of Whitby. With its stunning location, sea views and charming interiors, it's the perfect coastal cottage for families and couples alike.

 

There is so much to love at this pretty stone cottage. Set in an elevated position looking down over the village, everything from the name to the fabulous view gives you a warm happy feeling! Step inside to discover interiors which have been given an understated elegant appeal.

 

At the heart of the home is the lovely sitting room which enjoys dual aspect windows: to the front, you have views out over the village and down to the sea and to the rear out onto the patio and cottage garden. Curl up on one of two large comfy sofas and warm your toes by the flame-effect gas fire, the perfect way to end a bracing walk along Sandsend Beach. The TV has an internet-based Sky Now TV box for your use along with a DVD player and some box sets to get you started. Wi-Fi is provided too.

 

Next door you'll find the open-plan kitchen and dining area, a cosy and intimate space, again enjoying glorious views. The kitchen is well equipped to provide you with everything you'll need on holiday including a dishwasher and washing machine. The dining table sits right by the window so you can look out to sea over breakfast. Heavenly! All three bedrooms in the cottage are set upstairs; two double rooms and a sweet twin room with full-size bunk beds. The property will sleep up to 6 adults, however for comfort the cottage is more suited to 4 adults and 2 children. The family bathroom is also upstairs. There's a bath to sink into each evening and a shower overhead too.

 

Outside, the cottage boasts front and rear gardens. Enjoy your morning coffee on the bench to the front of the cottage, looking down directly over the village and to the beach. And for those al fresco lunches, move around to the rear and settle down with a bottle of something lovely on one of two patios. It's a very pleasant sheltered little spot with a cottage-style garden and patio furniture. The shed is also home to deck-chairs with buckets and spades if you fancy a mooch down to the beach.

  • 1 bathroom with shower over bath and WC
  • Oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine
  • Sky Now TV, DVD
  • Garden with patio furniture

The cottage is 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 up some steps, in a quiet valley looking down towards the sea, 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 clifftops, 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 upmarket restaurants and champagne bars. Sandsend itself is 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 here.

The property is also just a few miles from the beautiful town of Whitby (3 miles). With its wonderful seaside heritage, excellent restaurants, independent shops and host of bars and cafes along 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. Robin Hood's Bay (8 miles) is one of the most popular coastal locations in Yorkshire - or the UK for that matter. The village is a maze of cobbled streets and higgledy-piggledy houses which seem to tumble down towards the sea. Staithes (7 miles) and Runswick Bay (6 miles) are also all within easy driving distance, each with their own unique charm.

Drive inland from the cottage and you can be in the heart of the North York Moors within minutes. Take a tour of the impossibly pretty towns and villages in the area and make sure you head up to the high moorland of Castleton Rigg (15 miles) - we guarantee on a clear day it will take your breath away.

We were a little concerned after reading a few reviews, there was no need, the cottage was lovely. The setting is absolutely beautiful and the cottage has everything you need for a beach/country holiday. The beds were really comfortable and big enough for our family of 4. The Wi-Fi is not great but only to be expected in its location.

The location of the property is excellent- superb views from front decking, beautiful back garden with handy covered eating area, easy access to the beach and local amenities.

Lounge is attractive and comfortable but kitchen needs to be better equipped. We had to buy a cafetiere and had 1 wine glass between us! Hide

Not the luxury cottage we expected. The property is very tired, poor shower, heating and lack of decent crockery, glasses and pans. Gas fire not working, 2nd bedroom double bed in a single room, very small. Couldn't use the front door as hallway packed with items. Potential fire hazard. Will not stay here again .

Nice cottage in a perfect location, but it really needs some better regular maintenance and TLC. It's listed as 'luxury' (and overpriced), but when we arrived we found a number of lamps not working (two were broken - others needed new bulbs), the outside covered seating area wasn't all that clean, and the washing machine was broken. Interior is finRead moree but not up to the 'luxury' price tag. The views from the seating area at the front are spectacular, though, and it's a lovely spot. Hide

A really lovely cottage. We are a family of 5 and visited Teapot Cottage in May 2021. The cottage is really close to Sandsend beach and only a very short drive from Whitby. The cottage itself is cosy, quiet, well set out and had everything we needed.

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.
