Situated overlooking the beach and sea in the heart of Whitby's old town, this two bedroomed cottage is in the perfect location, tucked away just off the quaint cobbled part of Church Street, not far from the numerous cafes, pubs, bistros and shops. The cottage has the added benefit of a private parking space just a 10 minute walk away.
During a break at 1 Sandside you can enjoy relaxing on the balcony with a drink and nibbles whilst watching the boats coming and going through the piers into the harbour. Tate Hill beach, the market place and the famous 199 steps which lead up to Whitby Abbey are all just a stone's throw away. You can also enjoy some local ale in the nearby traditional pubs, The Board Inn and The Duke of York, both serving hearty delicious pub food. Abbey Wharf bar is also not far away and boasts lovely views over the harbour. If you want to dine al fresco, the cottage has its own terrace with picnic bench in its quiet courtyard to the rear. There's also numerous fish and chip restaurants and takeaways nearby which have to be tried whilst in Whitby.
After a busy day out and about seeing the sights, 1 Sandside offers a cost retreat with stunning sea views from the lounge and bedrooms and is suitable for couples and small families who want to be close to the beach, amenities and attractions of this wonderful seaside town.

Whitby is a popular choice for visitors all year round. It is well known for its long sandy beach and delicious seafood. The river Esk flows through the town to the sea and cottages are perched on the hills on each side, with cobbled streets and historic yards providing a maze of places to explore. The town has a fantastic mix of modern shops and services, traditional stores and boutique shops. Whitby jet continues to be made into beautiful jewellery and sold in a number of shops. There are plenty of excellent restaurants which serve local fish and seafood, as well as a wonderful choice of cafes and tearooms.
The ruins of Whitby Abbey stand dominantly on the clifftop and can be reached by climbing the 199 steps from the old town. The Abbey is said to have been the inspiration for Bram Stoker's novel Count Dracula, and its gothic splendour is the perfect place from which to take in some truly stunning views over the town, harbour and coastline. Whitby harbour is steeped in history and visitors can see where British explorer Captain James Cook first worked as an apprentice before setting sail and discovering Australia. A statue of this great explorer stands proudly above the town, along with some huge whalebones, a sign of the town's maritime history. The harbour is a buzz of activity and you can enjoy early mornings watching the fishing boats come ashore before getting first choice of their catch of the day.
There's always something happening throughout the town, with festivals and fairs are held throughout the year. These include Whitby Folk Week and the Whitby Regatta, and there are two popular Goth festivals each year.
