    “This is the second time of staying at Crab Cottage.”

    It is a gorgeous, comfortable, cosy & well equipped cottage. It is in such a peaceful location. Slept very well in the comfortable beds. Could I possibly suggest a bread bin which would come in very handy. I look forward very much to returning again

The property

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.

About the location


Whitby 2.5 miles.

Lying on Yorkshire's spectacular Heritage Coastline, Sandsend is the ideal place for a family holiday with its award winning, wide sweeping beaches, rock pools and dramatic cliffs. Indeed this part of the coastline is known locally as the Dinosaur Coast because of the many fossils found here. In the season, beachside stalls offer everything from light snacks and drinks to boats, buckets and spades! Children will enjoy damming the little beck where it crosses the beach to form a freshwater lagoon - great (and safe) for paddling and boating! For the more energetic the village sits on the lovely long distance Cleveland Way Trail, which offers great off-road cycling along the disused coastal railway as well as breathtaking clifftop walks. The National Trust now own the nearby headland, Sandsend Ness, where there is a delightful nature trail in the old quarry pits. A special place offering something for everyone!
