The Old Post Office was really lovely and very comfortable we will be back as soon as we can, we usually visit Sandsend two or three times a year, the view from the Post Office is second to none. I would just like to say how friendly and helpful the staff were at Yorkshire Coastal Cottages as I added the grandchildren after initial booking and booked an extra night just a couple of days before the start of the holiday, nothing was too much trouble we would not hesitate to book again or recommend you to family and friends.
