Self-catering holiday accommodation in Sandsend
Seaside villages line this Heritage Coast, yet this holiday destination is one of the prettiest, with its sandy beach, two trickling streams, spectacular walking routes and boutique shops. Only 4 miles north of Dracula’s Whitby, this picture-postcard fishing village makes for a peaceful escape. Spend days exploring the local area, walking the hills and discovering ancient sites throughout the North York Moors National Park, then enjoy evenings dining in the old pub or stylish bistro in the heart of Sandsend.
Fossil hunting is a favourite pastime for those visiting the sand and shingle beach as is rock pooling, and there are views all the way across to the magnificent ruins of Whitby Abbey. If you enjoy exploring, you can make your way to Whitby by walking along this sandy shoreline, although it can take up to 1.5 hours depending on how often you stop to take in views and play in the waves. With plenty of luxury properties throughout this coastal destination, you could stay in a stylish family-sized holiday cottage, a large property for big groups or an elegant couples’ retreat. Find a secluded escape among the breathtaking countryside for your break or a seaside cottage in the centre of the village and walking distance down to the beach and eateries. Take a look at these gorgeous properties and pick out your favourite escape.
