One of the great hidden gems on the Yorkshire coast.

If you’re looking to escape the crowds at the busy seaside resort of Whitby, head north along the sandy beach and within two miles, you will reach the pretty fishing village of Sandsend.

Dissected by the towering presence of The Riggs, a great chunk of land that almost pushes the road into the sea, the village is sliced through again on either side by Estbek and Sandbeck

You will find a little more peace and tranquillity in Sandsend, it lies on the edge of the North York Moors, and if you’re staying there, it’s a good base to explore the national park or other locations on the coast.

The entire village is sandwiched snugly between the Cleveland Way and the National Park with a glorious, child-friendly beach at one edge and dense woodland – part of the extensive Mulgrave Estate. You can visit the ruined castle on the estate on Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday.

There are plenty of good places to stay if you’re looking to stay here, Raithwaite Hall has a range of accommodation and a reputation for fine dining. If you’re looking a holiday cottage, there are many options available in and around the village.

Why don’t you upload your photos of Sandsend to the Yorkshire Life reader photo gallery?
