“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

You will not be disappointed with this accommodation it is lovely, clean and in a perfect location, the views from every window are stunning and the seating in the front room is so comfy to relax on after a days walking. The wood burner soon gets the room cosy but to be honest we were lucky with the weather! We ate at the local pub which was good and also at the Estbeck, then we ate in as the apartment was so homely and warm. June the owner is very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is due to the lack of instructions for the wood burner, the range cooker, CD player, washer/dryer it would help as worried about breaking items so I instruction books would have been good rather than having to trouble either Vanessa or June Also a little surprised by a lady knocking at the door for a card on the property and a couple just walking up the drive whilst we were sat outside, this could maybe be avoided by a dispenser at the bottom of the drive?. Don't let this put you off though it is lovely and the internet connection is excellent.

“Fabulous location, great accomodation, will definitely be back”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Just at the end of our second visit to the Sands and this trip was of the same high standards as our first (around 9 months ago). The layout of the apartment is very child-friendly and June and Stuart are incredibly accomodating, with buckets and spades left in the apartment for our short walk down to Sandsend beach. Views from the apartment are superb; a great sea view from the front, combined with a Hobbiton-esque village at the back make it feel like you're truly in wind-down mode (even with an excitable toddler!). Whitby is only a few minutes drive away and other villages such as Runswick Bay are also near by. We travel in this area a great deal and will definitely be back soon!

We all LOVED our week at The Sands & we were very sad to leave.
It's nestled in an idyllic little valley thats quiet & peaceful. Views of the sea from the living room bay windows & Mulgrave Estate & woods.
Log burning fire, bathrooms en suite, large modern kitchen over looking a garden & out to the woods.
Wonderful restaurants, & both modern & traditional cafes all within walking distance.
Sandsend beach is very pretty & offers a lovely walk to Whitby for some of the best Fish & Chips in the world!
Friendly locals, good beer, stunning scenery - we all want to move there !
