The Porthole is approached via a private lane (called The Lane) just off the A174 in Sandsend. Approaching from the Whitby end of the village, go over the first bridge and after about 40 metres there is a "Slow Concealed Entrance" sign on your left and Tides café on your right. The Lane is about another 40 metres round the bend in the main road, on your left hand side. It is a sharp 180 degree turn, and looks at first as if you are going to a garage. Follow The Lane up the hillside.
Come right to the top of the hill and stop by our back door (you cannot go any further!).
Please do not use a Sat Nav, it will send you into the woods where you will get stuck!
