Crab Cottage, set within the natural grandeur of the North York Moors National Park and with stunning coastal views, is a wonderful base for a trip to this popular location. The stone-fronted facade will enchant you, with a front patio yard where you can relax on the bench and enjoy the lovely surroundings.

Step inside to find wonderful décor with a touch of marine blue to match your seaside location and beamed ceilings and hardwood floors bursting with character. Find the open-plan living area, where you can relax in the armchairs and savour home-cooked meals at the contemporary dining table sitting in the room's centre. Prepare hearty recipes in the spacious kitchen, which includes an AGA cooker and an electric hob to meet your culinary needs. Escape to the snug and sink into the luxurious corner sofa and perch your cup of tea on the unique coffee table, whilst the woodburning stove softly heats the room. With a washing machine to keep your holiday clothes fresh and a dishwasher to keep the house clean and tidy, a self-catered stay has never been more convenient! As the sun sets over the sea, head upstairs to the first floor to relax and revitalise in the stunning bathroom, where you may either enjoy a relaxing dip in the tub or a refreshing shower. Choose between three beautiful bedrooms to rest your head, all white-washed with striking feature walls, including a double with en-suite shower room, a double and a lovely twin, all with matching furniture to unpack your belongings.

Enjoy a steaming cup of coffee in the spacious garden in the morning to wake up to salty sea air and wonderful landscapes. Sandsend is a pet-friendly holiday destination with a beautiful beach, as well as plenty of services for your self-catering stay, such as a local shop and restaurants.

Take a trip to Whitby when you're not exploring the natural beauty of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park, where historians will relish the gothic ruins of Whitby Abbey, climb the 199 Steps for spectacular panoramic views, or visit the family-friendly sandy beach for picnics and sandcastle building. Follow winding cobbled alleyways filled with 18th-century cottages, stroll paths along the Yorkshire cliff tops, and go rock pooling on the little sandy beach in Staithes, an unmissable seaside community perched on a hillside with picture-perfect coastal vistas. Travel to Robin Hood's Bay for a historic, postcard-perfect fishing village with tiny alleyways full of character, quaint shops, and excellent tearooms, as well as the Bay's museum, which houses local history and tradition. Crab Cottage is an ideal base for exploring Yorkshire's coast and countryside with your loved ones.




This charming mid-terrace cottage enjoys a prime position on the edges of the North York Moors National Park, whilst also resting just 0.3 miles from the beach. This pet-friendly property enjoys a large rear garden where you can dine alfresco in the summer months, as well as off-road parking and a interior with Smart TV and crackling woodburning stove for those evenings spent in the comfort of Crab Cottage.

Fantastic property and location no problems will be booking again. Congratulations to the owners one of the best we have stopped in over the last 30 years.
Mr Rowley
This is a beautiful cottage with a quirky seaside decor. Very comfortable with a traditional feel but all mod cons. We loved it! The location is superb. Surrounded by other lovely little cottages in a pretty valley, just a minute’s walk to the beach. The parking spaces were a huge benefit. We hadn’t been to Sandsend before but we will definitely be back, hopefully to Crab Cottage if it’s not fully booked. Wonderful holiday!
Mrs Blakey
Absolutely beautiful cottage, very well placed with stunning views. Nice touch with the hamper on arrival. Very well equipped. We loved it so much we have booked again
Mrs Connelly
Crab Cottage was a beautiful place to stay. Very homely and an excellent location too. Would love to go back. Nice welcome hamper too thank you.
Mrs Caulfield
The cottage is fabulous. The facilities are great and the garden and summerhouse overlooking the beach was lovely. We loved the kitchen, using the aga, cooking whilst enjoying company of the family using the dining table to play board games until meals were served. The whirlpool bath was a big hit with some of us at the end of energetic days hiking the many footpaths from the house. There was so much to do and a good local shop,cafe and restaurant. We were surprised how good the bus service is too. Everyone wants to come back.
Mrs Greenhough
The cottage was clean and welcoming with a very good parking space which was absolutely necessary given the amount of other cars over the busy Easter period. There was a wonderful welcome pack. The boiler did stop working but was rectified very quickly by the engineer. Both the bench area at the front and the sea views from the garden at the back were great for relaxing. The cottage was well equipped and we really enjoyed our stay in this idyllic location.
Mrs Brundell
The rooms were wonderful but could do with blinds over the skylights as the rooms were very bright as soon as daylight came. Minor problems
Mrs Mitchell
Really lovely cottage in Sandsend. Very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We did have a problem with the hot water and heating stopping working which was promptly fixed within a day.
Mr Bateson
Did say a see view from the summer house but the trees we’re overgrown,otherwise everything was lovely
Mr Welch
Its the 3rd time we've stayed at that particular cottage and we couldn't be happier with everything. Excellent in every regard, in a great location. We hope to do it again very soon.
Mr Engstrom
A truly wonderful cottage in a great location. The only complaint is that it is so well insulated and with underfloor heating we daren’t try out the log burner - we would have literally roasted! We also had to turn off the AGA and open the windows even with outside temperatures of only 7.5 degrees. We had great weather so managed long walks on the beach with the dog and with a welcome coffee in the Sandside Cafe to finish. All in all a very relaxing week thank you
Mr Barton
We enjoyed the most fabulous family holiday, in a perfect setting, for good walking, access to shops, pubs etc The house comfortably worked for 6 adults, although the twin bedroom was more suited to children.
Mrs Porritt
We have just returned from an amazing 3 night stay at Crab Cottage. The Cottage is absolutely gorgeous. We were delighted to be welcomed by Christmas decorations and a beautiful welcome pack. The house was absolutely spotless. The decor is so tasteful and well thought out. We have 3 young children and a dog. There was plenty of space and the cottage felt so homely and cosy. The garden is breathtaking. So quaint with amazing views. The allocated parking area is perfect and easily enough space for 2 cats if needed. One minute walk from the gorgeous beach at Sandsend. We cannot rate this stunning cottage highly enough and we would certainly love to return. It’s a little haven on the gorgeous Yorkshire coast. Thank you for letting us enjoy this special place.
Mrs Worthington
Crab Cottage is a fantastic place to stay, packed with touches of luxury, particularly the bathrooms and the Summerhouse. The location could not be better and we have very much enjoyed our stay.
