Sands & Pebble @ Marstalls
Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Marstalls, a seaside villa in the valley at Sandsend, some say one of the area's best kept secrets, is located just 2 minutes' walk from the lovely sandy beach, perfect for children and romantic couples! . The house has easy access to all amenities in the village including the local pubs, cafe bar, restaurants, cafes, gift shops and galleries as well as Sandsend Stores', our local Harrods!
Being on the Cleveland Way walk and one mile from Whitby Links Golf course, this is a perfect haven for walkers and golfers.
The outside terraces and covered dining areas, furnished with tables and chairs enable you to dine al fresco. With one ensuite double, one sofabed and two superking/ twin ensuite bedrooms, the house is ideal for families, with plenty to keep you busy and amused in the surrounding areas.
Quiet and peaceful, yet only 10 minutes away from Whitby, known especially for it's beatiful Abbey and also, of course, The Dracula Stories. There are many excellent fish and seafood restaurants in Whitby and the surrounding villages.
The beautiful Yorkshire Moors is a 10 minute drive away in any direction, perfect for romping around and lovely picnics. Enjoy

Both Sands and Pebble apartments are within Marstalls, which is a delightful Country House set in the beautiful little Valley in Sandsend. It has stunning views from all aspects. It has beautiful views of the Sea, The Valley, the Beck and Mulgrave Woods. The Beck runs down from Mulgrave Woods and into the sea. There are lots of lovely walks to be taken starting from Sandsend, which is on the Cleveland Way and the walk round the valley is really beautiful and very peaceful, with ducks, goats and pheasants and a lovely little Church. And of course the lovely sandy beach to walk or play on. There is private parking
The Yorkshire region
Sandsend is 2 miles north of Whitby at the far end of the beach on the Cleveland Way. Whitby is famous for The Abbey, Dracula and Bram Stoker, also Charles Dickens and Captain Cook. There are lots of restaurants and wine bars.
Sandsend is an idyllic village where everyone dreams of living! The Valley is lovely with ducks, goats, pheasants and deer. The walk round the valley and past the little church is stunning. As is the walk through Mulgrave Woods to the other side of the village. Surfers come from miles around to ride the waves. 2 minute stroll along the valley lane to Sandsend beach.
Woodlands Café/bar - a stylish, innovative café bar serving fabulous contemporary food and a wide range of very different dishes, prepared by chef/patron Alex Perkins (our son!) using fresh, locally sourced produce with a distinctly retro feel. Unbelievably fab homemade cakes and pastries. It is a short stroll along the seafront and along east row.(Opposite The Hart)
Wits End – Award winning café just at the end of the bottom lane with a sheltered walled garden.
Beach Hotel – serves a good pint, very grumpy landlord (we call him Rigsby!)! Tell him you are staying here and he may look after you!
Sandsend stores – At the heart of Sandsend and established for over 100 years, Sandsend Stores supply locally sourced produce and speciality foods, fine wines and ales made both locally and around the world, also newspapers and lovely coffee to drink in or take away. A good range of picnic food for the beach, also plastic glasses, plates, knives and forks etc. Buckets and spades. Very friendly staff and of course the lovely Fraser!
The Tides Cafe / Surf Shop – Surfing lessons and hire. Sells locally made Trillo's ice creams and lovely coffee. Lovely place to watch the world go by. Belongs to Fraser. Buckets and Spades and beach gear.It is being re-built to deal with high demand and now houses a lovely cafe with decked areas directly on the beach.
The Healing Touch - A holistic therapy shop with lovely soaps and gifts etc.
Wild Hart – Lovely gift shop next to The Woodlands Café bar
Estbek House - Award-winning restaurant with good food and and extensive wine list – quite pricy!
The Hart Inn – Lovely traditional village pub (with real locals!) serving good food and hand pulled beers. A South facing garden in Summer and a welcoming fire in the grate on chilly days. Friendly locals.
Turnstone Art Gallery - Overlooking the fine sandy bay of Sandsend, the Turnstone Gallery aims to bring you the best of art and craft work from the region. At the Turnstone you will always find a broad range of contemporary work - original paintings, etchings, ceramics, sculpture, photographs and enamels.
Sandside Café – Lovely café with new decked and glazed balcony area overlooking the beach, delicious homemade cakes and locally sourced pies and pastries, fresh crab sandwiches/salads. Far end of the village opposite the Turnstone Gallery. Summer or winter you are sure to receive a warm welcome as you sit and take in (more!) unrivalled views of the North Yorkshire Coast.
