ACCESS STATEMENT FOR THE COTTAGE, TEAPOT HILL, SANDSEND
The Cottage is located in The Valley, Sandsend accessed via a narrow lane off to the left of the road at the bottom of Lythe bank when travelling north, a few yards past Wits End Cafe.
The property is an end terrace period stone cottage under a pitched pantile roof, with Yorkshire sash windows and attractive part glazed and panelled entry door. The cottage retains a great deal of period charm, with low beamed ceilings, and a steep narrow staircase to the first floor.

To reach the property from the car park, there is a small wooden bridge over the stream and c. 15-18 steps up to the property. There is a large council Pay & Display car park to the rear of Wits End Café.
