person found this review helpful

We stayed at the Sands for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The accommodation is beautiful, very homely and with plenty of room. The garden was great for kids to play in and the beach is a short stroll across the road. Everything you need is provided, including beach toys. Being the lower floor of a house you have lots of room and all great sized. I would highly recommend this accommodation.

“an amazingly peaceful, comfortable apartment with fantastic sea views”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We booked at short notice and had the most fantastic stay in Sands at Sandsend. WE couldnt have wished for a nicer place-well furnished and ketted out with everything fr relaxing break. The views and setting are wonderful and the comfort of the accomodation made the 2 night stay perfect. Plenty of places go for walks and to eat so the car didnt move from the parking space provided all weekend!
The weather meant we made the most of having the lovely outside seating area for bacon sandwiches and coffee-what more can I say, other than 'thank you' to the owners for taking such care to give your guests a welcome, restful place to stay in Sandsend!

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 13 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Clean,comfortable and well equipped. The owner lives upstairs and is very friendly and helpful. The view from the living area is lovely, with the village in front and looking sideways down to a small bridge and the sea beyond. It is a three mile walk along the beach to Whitby, but watch out for tide times! A perfect short break in a lovely setting.

“A Beautiful Apartment with Stunning Views”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

This apartment is the nicest we have ever stayed in. The decor is gorgeous and everything is spotlessly clean. The log burner in the lounge is so lovely and warm ideal on a winters day. Everything is provided for you including buckets and spades which our grandson loved. The sofa bed in the lounge is large enough to sleep two adults very comfortably. The views are amazing from every window. Stewart and June are lovely people and are always there if you need any thing. I would highly recommend this apartment.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 21 November 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.
