Location: Sandsend (NEW)

Turnstone Cottage is glorious - with stunning sea views and beautiful decor, it's a perfect holiday cottage for enjoying the delights of Sandsend - we love the balcony, where you can sit, enjoy breakfast or drinks, or just sunbathe, whilst enjoying the sea view.

There's been great attention to detail with its lovely beach/nautical-themed decor - even the skirting boards have a gentle curve as a homage to the waves which lap the golden beaches nearby; a lot of care has gone into creating a wonderful holiday cottage for a special, luxury holiday. 

This lovely cottage has two beautiful bedrooms, one is a double with a king size bed, TV and a stylish en-suite bathroom with bath, shower, WC and hand wash basin.  The second bedroom, with its bunting and beach-inspired accessories, is a twin room with two full size single beds, TV and an en-suite shower room with large walk-in shower, WC and hand wash basin. 

The first floor is dedicated to a wonderful, vast open-plan living space to take advantage of the amazing views; there's a sitting room area with TV/DVD, dining space for enjoying meals together and a stylish kitchen with granite work surfaces, integrated dishwasher, oven, induction hob, fridge freezer and microwave. 

French doors open onto a fabulous balcony, with table and chairs - it's a simply gorgeous place to sit and relax, whether from early morning whilst watching the sun rise over Whitby in the distance, or late in the evening - we'd light candles and snuggle up to gaze at the stars.  

The property also has a utility room with a washing machine and dryer plus a WC/cloakroom off the living area.

There's the advantage of a garage for private parking for added convenience.

All utilities, crisp bed linens and towels included.  Welcome pack.  Free Wi-Fi. 

One well-behaved pet welcome at a cost of £30.00 per stay.  (Would consider two small dogs.) 

A refundable security deposit of £150.00 is payable with all bookings.
