House in Sandsend, Near Whitby, North Yorkshire Moors, Yorkshire, England - Peaceful Location, In The Centre Of The Village With The Beach Just 50 Metres Away
About David Findlay
Originally from Yorkshire, I bought Jasmine House as a holiday home so as to be able to return for relaxing breaks from London. As these breaks are too infrequent, I decided to open up Jasmine House for the enjoyment of others needing a holiday in picturesque Sandsend, and so started doing holiday lets through Owners Direct
Why David Findlay chose Whitby
Jasmine house is about 50 metres from the Sandsend Beach and is centrally placed in the village. The house is traditionally yet comfortably furnished to fit in with its character. The kitchen is excellently equipped with for home cooking, as well as having a dishwasher and washing machine. The sitting room is a welcoming family space, fully equipped with TV and DVD, Bose speakers for iPad etc and a cupboard full of games and jigsaws. One of the few houses in the immediate vicinity with a garden, Jasmine House has a front terrace that, weather permitting, is a morning sun trap sheltered from the wind and an upper terrace with views over the sea.

Lovely property and a great experience
Our party of 7 (5 adults and 2 children) had a fantastic long weekend at this lovely property in Sandsend. Great location and we really appreciated all the facilities of the house, in particular how well stocked the kitchen was and being able to sit together and eat together at the kitchen table. David was helpful and extremely communicative throughout booking and our stay. Highly recommend and I'm sure we'll be back.

Perfect location and beautiful house for a break away
The house had everything we needed and was set in the most beautiful area. Checking in was simple and easy and we were very greatful for this after traveling up! The kitchen and lounge are fantastic social spaces... our only tiny nit pick was that we felt the bedrooms were just a little too small for 7 adults for any longer than we stayed. But it being such an amazing house in an amazing area meant thus compromise was easy! Thank you for such a wonderful break!
