A favourite with families and pet lovers, cosy Harlow Cottage is in Sandsend, one of the most stunning Yorkshire coastline settings. Stay here to enjoy a quieter break, just three miles from bustling Whitby.Add to shortlist Share
We highly recommend 18th century Harlow Cottage if you’re travelling with a family or pet that loves the great outdoors. Sandsend is a small village on the heritage coastline, three miles north of Whitby. It promises panoramic seascapes, miles of countryside walks and acres of beach for playing and rockpooling.
Harlow Cottage is a two-bedroom holiday home, 40-metres back from the seafront and away from passing traffic, up a quiet pedestrian courtyard. The cottage is set over three levels and - as is typical in Whitby cottages - the staircases are rather steep. The effort is truly worth it as you’re rewarded with the most beautifully finished accommodation.
Enter through the picket fence into a warm and welcoming lounge with comfy sofas and electric stove. The galley kitchen is a visual delight, and the hard flooring downstairs is super practical for after days on the sand!
Climb staircase one to find the spacious twin room and family shower room. Climb higher still for a bedroom with King size bed, and its impressive pitched ceiling and glimpsing sea view.
At certain times of the year the southerly beach at Sandsend does not permit dogs, please observe the signs.

The Local Area
You’ll probably need a car if you want to travel down to Whitby. Parking is two minutes away in the public car park and there’s the village store close by, where you can pick up essentials. For a big shop head out to the Spar or Sainsbury’s nearer Whitby. There are several little beach front cafés or for eating out try The Hart Inn, around 20 minutes’ stroll round the bay.
Please note that the exact location of the property may differ slightly from the map.
Wonderful relaxing weekend. Cottage Fab, well equipped and super clean. Enjoyed walks on the beach at Sandsend and Runswick Bay. Fab fish and chips at the Magpie in Whitby. Will definitely book again. Perfect location, loved it !
We had a wonderful time at Harlow Cottage - the house was just what we needed. The beach, a fantastic retreat from a hectic life with 2 small children. Thank you so much !!!
Lovely to stay again after 3 years. Will be back again ASAP !
