“A fabulous New Year getaway !!”

We stayed at The Sands with our friends for a week from 29th December to chill out after a hectic Xmas and see the New Year in and what a treat !! The bottom floor apartment is beautiful, homely and welcoming with an upmarket feel with all matching fittings and furniture and modern appliances with stunning views from the window seats of the sea and the woodland valley.With a lovely log burner in the lounge , a great outdoor seating area for sitting out with our drinks, yes even in Dec/Jan wrapped up well and the lovely touch of a bottle of champers and chocs on arrival - perfect.
We walked miles along the sands, in the woods and on the cliffs and found great foodie places nearby Woodlands Bistro and in Whitby - The MagpieCafe , Pie and Mash cafe, The Wheatsheaf a great pub in Egton etc . New. Years Eve was spent in Whitby and then back to the local pub The Hart in Sandsend - we were made so welcome by everyone despite not being locals and had a great night. Despite having stayed around this area previously this is a great escape bolt hole , so quiet and perfect with lovely hosts June and Stewart who take great pride in their apartment with all their special touches - thank you . We will be back in the future !

“One of the nicest places we've stayed”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have stayed in some great holiday cottages and hotels and our stay in Pebble was easily up there with the best of them.

From arrival, June the owner was lovely and made us feel very welcome. The flat is compact but has a nice flow and the living room and bedroom are good sizes. So the two of us and our baby didn't feel at all cramped, just cosy and comfortable.

I would say that if you see the photos online, which do make it look nice, it is even better when you actually walk around and stay there. The flat has nice furniture and paintings on the wall, a well equipped kitchen, luxury shower-room and good wifi. There is a short path down to a lovely small valley which you can walk down to the sea via.

The highlights of staying here for us were:

- The amazing sea views from the kitchen and having meals looking out at it
- The excellent position, close to the beach and not too far to walk to the village shop or further along to a nice bistro and cafe
- Being away from the business of Whitby but being able to get there quickly
- The small valley with it's ducks, goats and nice scenery
- The instant boiling water tap was a treat for my fiancee who loves tea!
- Being able to park by the flat and walk to the sea / sandsend (as parking can be quite difficult or chargeable in the area).

“FABULOUS!!”

We stayed here in January for a girlie weekend. Just 6 of us stayed in Sands and it was the most beautiful apartment in such a tranquil setting. Everything we needed was there for us. We were looked after so well by June and Stewart, nothing was too much trouble. We walked on to a lovely little restaurant round the other side of the village which served fabulous food and was great fun.
Definittely will be going back. Loved it. Thank you
