Many holiday cottages to discover!
To make the best of your trip in Sandsend, we recommend you bring some essential items. Start with something to keep the rain away. You can never really be sure of the weather. An umbrella and a raincoat are a good start!
We always make sure we take a good book. There's always plenty of downtime on a cottage holiday, and so it's a great time to catch up on a read. Although you can buy your essential food and drink items locally, it's great to have them with you so you can make a sandwich or a cup of coffee as soon as you arrive. Many people have favourite places they return to again and again, whereas we like to find new places to stay.
Children love to get out of the cottage (not because the cottages aren't great, but because its fun to play outside!) and this is a great benefit of staying in a country cottage. Trusting the sun to shine every day is rather optimistic in Sandsend regardless of the time of year.
Although its great to be outside in Sandsend, you can often have just as much fun with your friends or family if you stay in and play some games. Cottage owners sometimes leave a few distractions around the property, such as local magazines or guidebooks.
Or you can just embrace the weather and get out there in a raincoat, splash about, and pretend that you really are still young.
When you choose your Sandsend accommodation its worth bearing in mind the group of people staying with you. If you have young kids in the party you may want to think twice about open fires, and of course some of the oldest cottages may have lower ceilings than those you are used to.
Dogs need holidays too, so it can be fun to bring your favourite pooch to the Sandsend cottage. If the description of the Sandsend cottage does not indicate that its pet friendly, please contact the owner before confirming the booking.
Don't forget to make the most of your North Yorkshire holiday - none of us get enough of them!
Families, Friends and More
Self-catering holidays can be the most fun in Sandsend. No worrying about getting to the dining room in time, either before the hotel declares that breakfast is over, or trying to fit in with other b and b guests.
And it also gives the freedom of eating out without needing to reorganise any plans in your accomodation. You don't need to tell anyone, just sit down and order! Relaxing by the river, reading a great novel, perhaps a pint in the pub - these are some of the favourite ways to enjoy some quiet time in Sandsend.
On the other hand, there's a growing proportion of visitors who use their time away from home to get fitter and try new things - such as mountain biking, horse riding or canoeing.
