The Beach House, Sandsend Self-Catering
Holiday home Ground Floor
From the covered porch, enter this lovely cottage into the reception hall, which has lovely artwork plus antique oars to celebrate its closeness to the sea.
There is a charming sitting room, with a very effective flame effect gas fire, TV/DVD and stunning views over the beach and out to sea plus a separate reading area - with a book and film library - so you can sink into the large leather chair and read to your heart's content.
An elegant dining room comfortable seats six people and has an original art nouveau fireplace (decorative), beams and an armoire of crystalware so you can enjoy your evening drinks in style!
The ground floor also has a cloaks/WC.
Lower Ground floor
To the lower ground floor is a second hallway with a door that leads to a small rear decked area.
There is a stylish kitchen, painted in Farrow & Ball's seaside-inspired Green Blue with beech wood worksurfaces. Well-equipped, the kitchen has a large gas range oven, fridge, dishwasher and microwave oven. The kitchen has a breakfast room area (so you can keep cook company!) with a farm house-style table plus a second television and sea views.
There is a large utility/laundry room, with a 3-drawer freezer, a Belfast sink, washing machine and separate tumble dryer plus an airer, ironing board/iron and equipment for the beach including chairs, rug, buckets and spades, etc., so you don't have to pack everything with you!
This floor also has a luxury shower room with limestone flooring and pebble feature trim, with a good-size shower and hand wash basin - it is perfect for a long, hot shower when you come off the beach!
To the first floor are three beautiful bedrooms. There is a double bedroom with 'Gothic' style king size bed, wardrobe and dressing table with high beamed ceiling and chandelier and fabulous sea views - what could be nicer after a good night's sleep on the deep, comfortable mattress (from And So to Bed) than to sit with a cup of tea and gaze out over the golden sands and deep blue sea?
A second double bedroom boasts a magnificent king size four poster bed plus wardrobe, full length cheval mirror and dressing table/chair, again with lovely high ceilings with a beautiful chandelier and with a view of the sea.
There is a charming twin bedroom in white with accents of blue, with two full size 3' single beds, an armoire and an easy chair.
The immaculate house bathroom is tiled in Italian marble and has a bath with shower attachment, WC and hand wash basin.
To the front of this lovely cottage is an enclosed decked garden with sea views; it has a bench and table and chairs and potted plants to give a splash of colour; it's a sun trap, enjoying sunshine from early morning until mid-afternoon, a perfect spot to enjoy the first cup of the day or al fresco meals - or even pre-dinner drinks, whilst watching the waves!
To the rear is a small enclosed decked area, also with sea views.
