Just a stone’s throw from the beach and a few miles North of bustling Whitby, welcome to the fabulous School House in Sandsend. This 3-bedroom holiday cottage on the Yorkshire Coast has been completely refurbished into a stunning luxury retreat, perfect for those who love to feel the sand between their toes within minutes from the door.
The interior style is New York Loft apartment meets seaside chic. All of the character of this gorgeous building has been retained and given a 21st Century make-over. Elegant well-chosen furniture sits against a pale backdrop, with dramatic dashes of colour and brooding seascapes thrown in. It’s a peaceful, bright and comfortable look.
The heart of the house is the dramatic open-plan sitting room, dining area and kitchen with its double height ceiling and New England clapboard walls. This amazing space is divided up into separate areas; a cosy corner with soft sofas to chill and watch TV, a space by the wood-burner to enjoy a glass of wine and a chat and the dining / kitchen area where you can pop open a bottle of bubbly and enjoy everyone’s company while you cook up a storm. And for your entertainment, SKY TV, DVD Player and Wi-Fi all included.
There are 3 bedrooms in the cottage, two on ground level. The first is a grand double bedroom with a King Size bed and windows at either side. There’s also a stylish little sofa in here if you want to retreat to your room for a quiet read one afternoon. The second bedroom is a super-cute twin room, with one single bed on ground level and another on a mezzanine floor. Your kids will love this one! There is also a family bathroom on this floor with a bath and shower overhead. The third bedroom is upstairs – a generous sized double room with an en suite bathroom and bath. Those with reduced mobility should note that the stairs up to this room are quite steep and narrow.
Outside you’ll find a large lawned garden to enjoy, with the sound of the sea floating up the valley towards you. It’s the perfect spot for the kids to run around and blow off some steam.
Next door to this luxury Yorkshire Coast cottage you’ll find a lovely boutique bar and restaurant. So if you feel like letting someone else do the breakfast one morning just pop in. And in the evening you can mosey over to the bar and snug for a little pre-dinner aperitif or stop in the restaurant for a slap up meal – the best of both worlds!
