If you want to have the best cottage holiday possible in Sandsend, we suggest a few key items to take along. Definitely pack some waterproof clothing. There's no such thing as a guarantee against the rain and there's nothing worse than being stuck inside.

If your family and friends are anything like ours, you should have a good book ready to fill those times when everyone's getting ready, or waiting for them to come back from a long walk. 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. We're often asked which is the best place to stay, and it's so hard to answer, it really depends what you are looking for. 

Sandsend Accomodation

Throughout the North Yorkshire area rates will vary quite a bit throughout the year - clearly the winter is the cheapest time. The school summer holidays generally run from the middle of July to late August. 

Summer half-term usually appears in the first couple of weeks in June, although different types of schools have different dates. Last minute bookings are alway possible, though clearly your choices will be fewer. It really is worth booking early. 

Cottage agencies are growing in size as a greater number of independents sign up with them. As a consumer this has a positive impact - in theory the facilities and standards are kept to a pre-agreed level.

Holiday Cottages

Before you start to research your holiday accommodation, it's worth asking everyone what they are looking for. Do you need twin beds or double beds, can the kids share a room, will your friends all want separate bedrooms? 

Dogs need holidays too, so it can be fun to bring your favourite pooch to the Sandsend cottage. Many places will accept dogs, but it's always a good idea to double check in advance if it's not mentioned on the booking website. 

Have a great holiday, wherever you stay. Hopefully it will be in a North Yorkshire cottage found through us! 

Families, Friends and More

Self-catering holidays can be the most fun in Sandsend. No pressure from the owner to eat meals at specific times, when you are self-catering the food is ready when you want it to be ready. 

And if you have specific dietary needs, whether that's something relatively common like vegetarianism or a more unusual food allergy, cooking your own food allows you peace of mind. For many people the idea of a Sandsend cottage holiday allows them to relax, take long rambling walks and stop off at a country pub for a pint and a ploughman's lunch. 

For many, however, its a chance to really do something active, from running and mountain biking to swimming and climbing.
