Originally from Yorkshire, I bought Jasmine House as a holiday home so as to be able to return for relaxing breaks from London. As these breaks are too infrequent, I decided to open up Jasmine House for the enjoyment of others needing a holiday in picturesque Sandsend, and so started doing holiday lets through Owners Direct
We had a lovely time at Jasmine House. Everything a
holiday house ought to be. Very comfy and relaxed , stylish
too ! So perfect to have the sea , good places to eat and the
village shop all in such easy access. Long may such places
remain so charming and unspoiled.
Thank you for sharing your lovely hideaway !
A lovely spot for exploring NYorks Moors and Coast. Everything you need in an interesting period property. Just need perfect weather to complete the experience....

The historic town of Whitby is famous for being Captain Cook's local port and the landing place of Dracula on his ill fated trip from Transylvania! It is also well known for the Abbey ruins above the town at the end of a challenging climb of 199 steps. Shortly beyond the foot of the steps is Fortunes smokehouse, well know locally and nationally for delicious home smoked kippers, salmon and bacon. Whitby is rightly famous for the quality and quantity of fish and chips on offer. Built around the harbour where the river Esk empties into the North Sea, the long tradition of fishing is still alive in Whitby. The stunning prints of Victorian photographer, Frank Meadows Sutcliffe are very popular around Whitby and a gallery of his work is in the centre of the town. Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes are well known and popular coastal villages with histories associated with the men who trawled the sea for fish as well as those who made their living through smuggling. The North York Moors National Park boarders Sandsend and Whitby, rising up from the sea to provide a vast landscape that offers a huge variety of walking and cycling opportunities. Low Dalby forrest between Whitby and Pickering has been commended for its excellent mountain bike trails and also offers beautiful surroundings for those who want to walk or visit by car.
