More about Fish Cottage

The pretty coastal village of Sandsend is a real ‘must visit’ if you’re staying in Whitby. Sandsend offers peace and tranquillity for those who are looking for calm and relaxation, but it’s also very popular with walkers and cyclists. The village is both coastal and rural, with its rows of charming cottages. Take a short drive from Whitby to Sandsend village, or better still, why not take a brisk, invigorating walk from the blue flag beach at Whitby which joins with the lovely Sandsend beach? When the tide is out the huge beach stretches out to sea, allowing plenty of space to enjoy the excellent views along the coastline, where you’ll be able to take in the spectacular views of Whitby Abbey and West Pier in the distance. As well as fossil collectors, Sandsend is well-known to fishing enthusiasts, and is a great place for rock-pooling, so be sure to bring a net and bucket and see what you could find. The little beck provides a safe haven for children to enjoy paddling, so there’s plenty to entertain all the family. Please remember to check the tide times if you wish to take the beach walk back to Whitby. Mulgrave Woods are close to Sandsend, where you can enjoy miles of peaceful woodland trails, seeing waterfalls and becks, and the ruins of Mulgrave Castle.

After all that walking mixed with the fresh salty air, you’ll no doubt have built up an appetite for a flavoursome lunch, a tasty tea or an atmospheric evening dinner.
