Gorgeous, romantic, magical… The Retreat near Sandsend is one of our flag-ship properties, a truly fabulous holiday cottage. With its elusive mix of chocolate-box good looks, beautiful interiors, award winning gardens and secluded location by the Yorkshire coast, The Retreat offers an idyllic luxury escape.
Dating back to the 17th Century, The Retreat is actually the oldest property in the area and it has a wonderfully glamorous past. Once home to the American Editor of Vogue, it also knows a thing or two about style. The owner has a passion for design and every room has been crafted to perfection with gorgeous furniture, sumptuous fabrics and elegant finishing touches throughout. And with contemporary comforts like Wi-Fi and Freeview available you can still stay connected to the world – if you want to that is! You’ll also find a Bose sound system, CDs, travel & interior books and DVDs to keep you entertained.
Sleeping up to four adults comfortably, this luxury cottage by the Yorkshire Coast is also perfect for two. Downstairs you’ll find a pretty kitchen with dining area, a lovely spot for breakfast or lunch. Next door is a beautiful formal dining room with double aspect views of the gardens. The generous sitting room features a wood burning stove and further views of the award-winning gardens. There is also a double bedroom on ground level and bathroom with shower.
Upstairs leads you to the master bedroom, an exquisite room complete with its own en suite. Again double aspect windows afford stunning views of the gardens and coastline beyond. With the sun streaming through in the morning and the only sound of birdsong to wake you, this is a heavenly bedroom for a lazy weekend lie-in. The en-suite comes complete with sea views and a roll-top bath to sink into. And to make it extra special you'll find complimentary toiletries in this luxury cottage by the Yorkshire Coast.
