Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Lovely family holiday.
Had a lovely family holiday at the Pavilion in lovely Sandsend. The Pavilion was the perfect venue for trips to the beach and a large enclosed garden which allowed the grandchildren to run about and play in safety. The house was very well equipped, was spotlessly clean and a delight to stay in. The owner (Anne) was very helpful and friendly and answered all of our queries. This was our first time at the Pavilion and we are bookex again for 2024 and would recommend tge Pavilion to anyone especially if you have young children.

Fabulous Property!!!
60TH DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS!!!!! We were a group of 8 and stayed at The Pavilion for a week late October to early November 2023 to celebrate our parents 60th Diamond Wedding Anniversary. The property is fantastic!! It was clean, comfortable, very spacious and was equipped with everything that we needed!! The Pavilion is in a great area, just a short walk to the beach and The Sandside Cafe, who did a mean bacon & egg roll!! It was a great base to visit surrounding sights including Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay, Staithes, Goathland and Grosmont. We highly recommend the property for a vacation in a beautiful part of North Yorkshire!!

Family holiday fantastic house and location
Stayed for a week with family, ages from 9 - 86. House was immaculate and layout suited everyone. Garden fantastic. House had all the amenities we needed and more than enough space for everyone. Views were great, with storm Barbet causing massive waves on the beach it was mesmerising. Location was perfect, 10mins drive to centre of Whitby and 2min walk to Sandsend beach. Driving range for attractions such as York and Flamingo Land. Communication with host was excellent and answered queries quickly. Would highly recommend and looking forward to hopefully going back again.

50th birthday celebrations
Stayed at the pavilion to celebrate our daughters 50th. The whole place is fantastic. I have never stayed in anywhere so well equipped. Everywhere very clean, good quality bedding and furnishings. The Pavilion is in a very upmarket residential area, just a short walk to the beach. We ate at the Hart Inn and the Fish Cottage , both in sandsend and both excellent meals. We will certainly be back.

Fantastic Home from Home
We booked The Pavilion for Christmas so our whole family could be together and make some special memories. The house was all set up for Christmas with Christmas Trees and decorations and we absolutely loved staying there. Five bedrooms with five bathrooms meant everyone had their own individual spaces and the lounge was a great catching up area with ample seating and a great tv with access to board games too. The kitchen was brilliant for our Christmas lunch and the table seated everyone comfortably. A quick walk down the hill and you are on the beach and you are able to walk into Whitby (tide allowing). A fantastic place to stay, great gardens overlooking the sea and we will definitely book again soon.

Great location
As a group of close friends who love walking we enjoy a stay here every year. It’s a great spot to catch up and enjoy walking the Yorkshire coast . The house is warm, comfortable, clean and well equipped . We have always found the owners very easy to communicate with before during and after our stay. Would highly recommend!

Delighted you enjoyed your stay at the house as much as ever. It does make a great base for some of the fabulous walks along the coast or on the North Yorkshire Moors. Look forward to welcoming you back next year.

Great for family gathering
We stayed at the Pavilion during October for a family get together. The house was clean, warm, well equipped and comfortable. The 2 bedrooms down stairs ideally suited the elderly and disabled members of the group and each bedroom had a bathroom which was great. The sky sports package on tv was very much appreciated. The large parking area was also a bonus. The owner was very helpful beforehand and gave us all the information we needed. Whilst there we enjoyed walking on the beach, with our dog. We also walked into Whitby and to Runswick Bay. The cafes in Sandsend were also good. We would recommend this house to others.

Really pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and it suited the needs of all your group so well. We also enjoy a walk to Whitby along the beach (when the tide's out of course!). It's about 40-45 minutes usually and you can always get the bus back if you don't fancy the return. I do hope you'll be able to visit us again in the future.

Highly Recommended
My 2nd stay at the Pavilion and just as brilliant as it was pre covid. Great sea views and by the beach. Spacious house with 5 bathrooms which are all of a high standard. The property has everything you need in terms of equipment and like last time was immaculate when our party arrived. The communication with the owner was great and quick as well. I would highly recommend this property for a large family or group stay.

Disappointed
A great location but the house smelled stale and wasn’t very clean. I took it up with the owner and was told it was because it was the end of a busy season. Unacceptable in my opinion.

I am very sorry you were disappointed in your stay at the house but I have to say a 2 star review is a disproportionate and unfair picture of our email correspondence. I always check with guests after their stay and you told me you'd had a 'lovely week' but mentioned 2 issues which were some stains on doors and paintwork and a smell of fried food which had lingered in the house probably as you yourself suggested from the guest leaving that morning having had a fried breakfast prior to departure (which is unfortunate but beyond our control). My actual reply to you was as follows and I quote: 'I’m pleased you enjoyed your stay but sincerely apologise that some aspects of the house were not up to scratch. Unfortunately your visit comes at the end of a long season of back to back visitors and from your photos and comments I can see that the doors and paintwork have been overlooked which shouldn’t happen but may explain why. I will take this up with our cleaners'. As you didn't contact me during your stay with any complaints to allow us to rectify any issues at the time it's surprising and disappointing to me that you feel the above justifies a 2 star review. We take any guest complaint or suggestion very seriously and try very hard to maintain the house to a high standard which is probably why so many of our guests choose to return.

Map
About the neighbourhood
Located at the foot of Lythe bank Sandsend is a picturesque village with cottages set against a backdrop of cliffs and two meandering streams which lead to the sandy beach. The beach featured as one of Britain's 20 best beaches by Telegraph Travel in July 2011, Sandsend beach is 'Set against a backdrop of grassy cliffs, where the wide sweep of beach from Whitby ends, this stretch is quieter and prettier than its famous neighbour. Children play in the little becks that flow across the sand and ducks waddle across the green in charming Sandsend village. This is a great place for fossil hunting at low tide.' Sandsend Beach is also a popular destination for surfers with the village having its own surf school for any aspiring beginners. The village is served by a local shop, Sandsend Stores, and Tides Beach Shop (with surf school) (email: sandsendsurfschool@hotmail.co.uk; ). There are also excellent restaurants (such as Estbek House with its award winning restaurant and extensive fine wine selection, www.estbekhouse.co.uk), The Hart Inn which is a traditional pub with good food, teashops and an art gallery. About 2 miles to the south is the historic fishing town of Whitby: dominated by the cliff top ruins of its 13th century Abbey and famous for its connections with Captain Cook and Dracula. There are many good restaurants there and numerous very good fish and chips shops including the celebrated Magpie Cafe. There is a good golf course on the cliffs between Sandsend and Whitby. Further to the south is Robin Hoods Bay and the lovely Victorian seaside town of Scarborough (home to the Stephen Joseph Theatre where Alan Ayckbourn premieres all his plays). A visit to the area would not be complete without a trip to the North Yorkshire Moors (the spectacular scenery was recently featured on Richard Wilson's 'Great British Drives' programme). The NYMR steam railway operates between Whitby and Pickering taking in some tremendous scenery which featured in the popular television series 'Heartbeat' and the James Herriot books.
