About this Holiday Cottage

All Sandsend Cottages properties (including the Porthole for 2 people) have sea views and are constantly updated and refurbished so kept to a very high standard. Craigmore is excellently positioned and provides first class accommodation. Set slightly on a hill, with spectacular views, it's close to the beach within the village of Sandsend and a short distance from shops, cafes & restaurants. Historic Whitby is a short bus/car journey or a 45 min walk along the beach (tide permitting). 


The charming sitting room has comfy sofas, a large flatscreen TV with Freeview Sky and a DVD player. You can look out on lovely views to sea or country or there are plenty of books and DVD's to enjoy

The garden room has double patio doors which lead onto the terrace and garden. Here too you will find a  TV with Sky Freeview and a DVD player.

Craigmore is ideal for a 3 generation or larger family holiday. The extra large (20ft x 16ft) kitchen / dining room has a refectory style table, dishwasher, range cooker, microwave combi grill and a large fridge freezer. Part of the kitchen has a glass roof which makes it a light and airy room to dine.  

The utility room has a sink, washer and separate tumble dryer.

Around and About

Two miles north of Whitby on the Yorkhshire Coast, Sandsend nestles under Lythe Bank and Mulgrave Woods. It boasts a wonderful sandy beach and visitors will enjoy the popular beach walk to Whitby, and some excellent countryside rambles. The village has several teashops, excellent restaurants, two pubs and a good shop. There is a regular bus service to Whitby and to Runswick Bay to the north


Both Craigmore and The Porthole are approached via a private lane (called The Lane) just off the A174 in Sandsend.  Approaching from the Whitby end of the village, go over the first bridge and after about 40 metres there is a "Slow Concealed Entrance" sign on your left. The Lane is about another 40 metres round the bend in the main road, on your left hand side. It is a sharp 180 degree turn, and looks at first as if you are going to a garage. Follow The Lane up the hillside.
