Local Area

St Mary's Cottage is set on a country estate in the North York Moors just inland from Sandsend.  Tucked away in a secluded spot in the hills sloping down to the coast, this luxury Yorkshire cottage is also just a few miles from some of the most stunning scenery in the North York Moors.

A few miles drive from this romantic holiday cottage takes you to 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.

Sandsend is a gorgeous little seaside village within easy reach of the cottage. With its handsome promenade, long stretch of beach, several excellent eating options and world class day Spa, you could happily spend a day there.

St Mary's Cottage is also just a few 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.  Robin Hood's Bay 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 and Runswick Bay are also all within easy driving distance, each with their own unique charm.

Head 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, Egton, Danby, Castleton, Rosedale?Or head up on the high moorland of Castleton Rigg, we guarantee on a clear day it will take your breath away.
