“A very pleasant property, situated in an ideal location.”
A short break for 2 adults (+ 1 small dog) so it was more than adequately sized for our needs.
Externally, the property is situated on busy road (by day) and has no useable garden, it offers parking for 1 vehicle (but you would struggle to accommodate a very large car) it sadly lacks ‘kerb appeal’, however, internally,, it is very stylishly furnished and decorated in a ‘shabby chic’ style, was warm and comfortable, and felt welcoming.
The kitchen is well equipped, with plenty of glasses, cutlery, crockery, has a dishwasher, washer/dryer (not used), and a good sized ‘fridge and freezer in the pantry area. A small supply of kitchen roll, refuse bags, and dishwasher tablets etc included.
The bathrooms offered both a shower, and a bath, with lots of towels provided. Hand soap, loo roll etc available.
We slept in the back ‘double’ bedroom as it was quieter (being away from the road), which was well furnished, altho the bed was not overly comfortable, and a bit on the small side (compared to what we are used to).
You can eat in the kitchen which would seat 4, or dining room (which would just about seat 10 at a push).
The lounge is light and airy with lovely views of the beach/sea, has a nice window seat, comfortable sofas, and additional chairs, and a large TV (Sky). The WIFI worked well during our stay. There was a small supply of logs for the stove, if you needed to use it (we did not).
The standard of cleanliness was ‘good’ but not ‘sparkling’ (some areas would have benefitted from a more thorough dust/vacuum).
There is a small local store very close by where you can purchase milk, bread etc, and restaurants/public house that serve food in Sandsend. There is also a regular bus into Whitby (and north), or you can opt for the 3 mile stroll along the coast road into the town itself.
We would return to ‘Quayside’ for another coastal break, which in itself is always the ‘proof of the pudding’.
Thank you for your feedback which is always welcome. We have taken on board your comments and the house has undergone a programme of improvements and renovation and is under new cleaning management from 2021. Property Owner
