Cottages near Sandsend Beach

Marking the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, Sandsend beach is a gentle arching sweep of sand just a few miles North of the popular seaside town of Whitby.

Backed by the pretty village of Sandsend itself, this quiet bay is popular with couples and families looking for a less crowded beach where activities are beyond that of sun worshipping. Ideal for the fossil hunters, surfers, sailors and those who love a bracing walk with or without the dog.

This long beach whether raining, shining or snowing, is definitely one for those who love to have the cobwebs blown away and for a real leg stretching exercise you can walk to Whitby Abbey to confront Dracula and take in its famous commanding views. With such a mini adventure you're sure to need a pit-stop or two and there are plenty of places at the beginning, middle and end of your walk to get your tea and cake to refuel.

This area has a perfect blend of seaside and countryside with the green hills of the North Yorkshire Moors rising up behind Sandsend, a perfect entry point for exploring away from the waters and into this large, vast and beautiful National Park. If you prefer to stay coastal and the pretty myriad of fishing villages have worked their irresistible charm then weaving your way Northwards stopping at the various little hamlets and clusters of houses along this stunning coastline is definitely an experience you’ll relish.

We have cottages all along this stretch of coastline and all within easy access to the pretty beach at Sandsend. If you need help finding what you’re looking for then one of our fabulous team can’t wait to help. Just call us on 0333 2020 899.
