  • "Lovely house for all the family, everything you need in the kitchen lots of extras that were very good."

    Beds very comfortable, settees in the front room comfortable but low and very old fashioned with some wear. New downstairs bathroom very good and big but very cold and shower door does not close fully, basin in shower tilting away from plug so water collects. Could do with a toilet on the second floor. Needs carpet on stairs as very creaky especially when people have to come down to toilet in the night. Tap in kitchen was constantly running (son is a plumber and said the unit needed changing as it had gone inside) we had to have this all weekend and very annoying at times. Overall though a very good stay really enjoyed it. Thank you.

  • "Victorian house was beautiful."

    We were there 4 nights for New Year and the house was lovely and warm with the benefits of under floor heating downstairs. The beds were really comfortable and had lovely bed linen on them all. The kitchen had everything you need and a lovely big American fridge which came in very handy as there was 10 in our party. It was a short stroll to the town and seafront which we did everyday. We would definitely stay here again. We did try to re-book for this New Year unfortunately it was not available. The only negative comment IWW could make was there was a tear in the sitting room leather sofa which could do with either replacing or repairing.

  • "Hi, our first impressions when we entered the house were very good."

    Flowers in the kitchen, wine and cake as little extras. Every room was lovely and bedrooms were all a decent size with lots of wardrobe space. Kitchen was great with lots of glasses/cup/plates etc. once we got our bearings we discovered it was only a 20 minute walk to town but actually had lots of bars and restaurants just round the corner. Our only suggestions would be for a radio or something similar in kitchen and more utensils for cooking with….eg spatulars/tongs etc. and one other thing to note is that the floorboards are very creaky so theres no going to the loo quietly in the middle of the night. But as a whole it was a lovely house and would recommend. (Ps…we had the queen size room and bed was very comfortable) Thank you for a lovely stay. :-) x

  • "The property was wonderful for our party of 10 and a dog for New Year!"

    We just about squeezed into the lounge! The kitchen had all appliances and was fully equipped with everything. There were 3 toilets which were needed for 10 people. The dining room was great too to seat us all for meals and playing games. There was underfloor heating so no need to light the fires. There was a local pub nearby which let us take the dog in (Tap & Spile) and it was a nice walk to the beach which took about 20 mins. Would book the property again.

  • "A great place for meeting up with family/friends well equipped kitchen and fab social dining room."

    Super comfy beds and roomy bedrooms. Quick response from owners when we had a heating problem .(our error) close to shops, pubs and restaurants.Various walks down to the beach and seafront. Warm and welcoming, the option of using the woodburner made for a cosy Christmas break. On street parking not ideal but workable.

The property

Tucked away in the bustling town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire, is this large five-bedroom house, Victorian House.

Enjoying a fantastic location just paces away from the beach and local amenities, as well as easy access to the stunning surroundings of the North York Moors National Park, Victorian House is a superb dwelling for a family or group of 10 wanting to add a touch of grandeur to their escape.

Within the property, you will find a wealth of original features, as well as a spacious and well-equipped kitchen for rustling up culinary delights for your loved ones to savour around the dining table for 10.

Just off the kitchen is a ground-floor shower room with washing machine, perfect for freshening up after a day of exploring.

After dinner, relax in the sitting room where you can select a much-loved film from the wall-mounted TV as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

The property also benefits from having its own private yard.

On the first floor, you will find three double bedrooms, one with woodburning stove, each served by a bathroom and separate cloakroom for your convenience.

Continue up to the second floor, where the two final bedrooms await, a large super-king-size with woodburning stove and an additional double.

Explore the town, where you can spend a day on the golden sands of Scarborough Beach, visit the remarkable Scarborough Castle, enjoy the delights of Luna and Alpamare, catch a live performance at the Scarborough Open Air Theatre or sit back and relax as you take a coastal ride along the Scarborough North Way Railway.

There are plenty of pubs, restaurants, and cafes to choose from, including The Newlands Park and The Watermark Café.

For exceptional walking opportunities, you can join onto the Cleaveland Way trail which will take you to all the key towns and villages within the North York Moors National Park.

Within the park, you will find the coastal town of Whitby, well-known for its Gothic Whitby Abbey, 199 Steps, vibrant seafront, and Whitby Museum.

For a memorable day trip, why not head to the city of York, where you can tour the renowned York Dungeons, visit York Minster and the National Railway Museum?

All this and more awaits at Victorian House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.
