The Pavilion in Sandsend is a large detached holiday home with 5 double bedrooms (3 doubles and two twin rooms) sleeping 10 people. Each bedroom has its own shower or bathroom with two ground floor bedrooms (one of which with its own wheelchair friendly wet room) offering good disabled access. All front rooms have sea views and look out across a large lawn, perfect for children’s' games and barbecues. The house is in a quiet location away from the main road but only a 100 metres walk to the beach and a short walk to the village pub, cafés, restaurants and shop. There are 4 dedicated parking spaces and the property also has a Sky Sports/Entertainment package to keep all guests entertained. Sandsend is a very popular coastal village 2 miles North of the bustling town of Whitby, famous for its connections with Captain Cook and Dracula. The house makes a perfect base for walking holidays with its proximity to the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and the Cleveland Way and also a great place to celebrate a birthday or a reunion with friends and family. We welcome up to one dog (by prior arrangement for a small additional charge). Our changeover day is generally Saturday (and we cannot be flexible on this in school holidays) so unfortunately any request for a 7 night booking to start on a Friday for example is likely to be declined. Outside school holiday periods though we welcome short break bookings of 3 or 4 nights typically starting on a Friday or Monday. If you would like to book the house please provide some information on your group on your booking request e.g. family holiday/friends' reunion.

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."
The village is served by a local shop, Sandsend Stores, and Tides Beach Shop (with surf school) (email: firstname.lastname@example.org; ). 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 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.
