  • "Beautiful holiday home, well maintained, finished to a very high standard and some very nice touches, welcome package thank you x Would definitely recommend, the location is fantastic an absolute stones throw to the main town and sea front."

    My only little comment on a negative side would be More oven cookware required, tins a little tired, Pyrex would be good. 5pm to gain entry to the property is a little late, when wanting to get settled in after a long drive, if this could be made earlier say 3pm - it would be perfect. Thank you to the owners for letting us stay in your beautiful holiday home we will definitely book again

    Thank you for your positive feedback, which is really useful. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay. We will look into providing more oven/cookware for future guests. With regards to the check in time, we have to accommodate the cleaning company that we use, but we will discuss this with them. Once again, many thanks for your comments on our property and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Property Owner

  • "It was a very comfortable holiday house."

    It was 5 minutes from seafront but in a peaceful residential area. For eight people there was plenty of room plus bathrooms. Excellent holiday accommodation.

    Thank you so much for your positive feedback. We hope you all had a lovely holiday! Property Owner

  • "The property was located conveniently close to the front."

    Parking was okay too and despite having two cars we could find roadside parking. We were three families holidaying together and chose the property after reading a previous review from April 2023 which praised the facilities. We arrived on the Saturday and on Sunday we noticed a patch on the living room ceiling. This was bigger on the Monday and so I rang Sykes and was told to leave my key in tbe key safe and it would get sorted. I heard nothing else. The patch was under the third floor bathroom so we stopped using it not wishing to damage the property. Nobody contacted us. Nobody came. We realised we hadn't been left enough parking tickets so rang Sykes back to ask what to do and to ask if we could use the bathroom or if it was getting fixed. We were told again they would be in touch and again heard nothing. I've not been reimbursed for two cars parking for a day each and I've not even had an apology for the lack of available facilities. I also only heard back when I received an email asking if I was pleased with how it was dealt with. It all spoilt our break. We had two young children with us who had to walk down a flight and half of steps in the night and the house we thought would give us plenty of space ended up not doing what we thought it would. I'm afraid I wouldn't recommend this property.

  • "Six of us, including two young children, had a lovely stay in this well-appointed house, well-equipped and ideally located close to the beach, shops and amusements."

    Having three bathrooms was excellent and we were very pleasantly surprised to find three televisions with Netflix and other streaming services. Our only niggle concerned the parking arrangements, which could have been made clearer.

    Thank you for your positive feedback, we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you back again sometime in the future. Property Owner

  • "A dishwasher and washing machine were quite a surprise as they weren’t listed."

    I’d suggest the website be updated. There was an awful smell coming from the en-suite sink which I reported, asking to be fixed when we vacated so we didn’t have to wait in for the plumber. Surprised this hadn’t been sorted prior to our arrival. Perfectly situated and beautifully clean and modern. I’d also suggest the book of what’s what etc have included “stripping the beds on departure” as not everyone checks their emails, as I didn’t until just before we were leaving. We had a fabulous 4 nights with amazing weather too. We hope to return!

  • "This property has clearly been given a recent high quality top to bottom refurbishment to a high standard."

    As such, just about everything is in near new condition. That made a big difference and put smiles on everyone’s face. It is also in a great location, literally steps from 2 pubs, a limited opening but fair priced convenience store and no more than a 2 minute walk to the central seafront. If like us, you prefer to walk, then the food market is a 5 minute walk away and the main shops about another 5 minutes. Be aware though that reaching these facilities means a steady walk uphill most of the way. There were however a couple of niggles. The kitchen is fully equipped but very small meaning that any significant food prep really has to be done in the dining room. That’s more an inconvenience than a negative. The first floor front bedroom needs blinds as the large windows are open to the street and are easily seen into. Curtains do the job but then you’re in darkness. The biggest issue was the bins. Despite clear instructions to put out, both bins were full on our arrival. In a property of that size it is conceivable that bins do fill over a 2 week period but from what we saw, previous visitors had barely used the kitchen so we suspect it had been quite a few weeks since the bins had been emptied. I can understand the reluctance of visitors to take bins through the adjoining dark alleyway but it is possible. It’s not clear to me how this can readily be resolved although I suspect a refurbishment to the adjoining building would help to encourage others. That may not be in the owners’ control. Finally, and as anyone who knows Old Town Scarborough is aware, parking is a lottery and you may have to leave your vehicle some distance away from the property.

    Thank you for this feedback, and please accept our apologies for the late reply. We're pleased that you liked the property and its location. With regards to the kitchen, we know that it there isn't much work space in the main part of the kitchen and that's why we installed some units and a worktop just around the corner in the dining room. Thank you for the feedback about the bins. Unfortunately we are aware that this is an issue. Guests are asked to put the bins out on a Friday, however some have forgotten to do so. We are in the process of trying to resolve this matter as soon as possible. Once again, thank you for your feedback, which is very much appreciated. We hope that you had a lovely holiday.

  • "Very clean."

    Suited 5 adults and a baby and a dog well, as there is plenty of room to spread out. The number of stairs to the top floors was a bit of a shock, although to be fair , it was clear in the information. Good location in the old town. All in all, a very enjoyable few days.

    So pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at 1 Princess Street and that the property was clean and suited your family. Thank you for your positive feedback. We hope to welcome you back again in the future! Property Owner

Nested in the thriving seaside town of Scarborough in North Yorkshire, is this fantastic four-storey property, 1 Princess Street.

Enjoying a superb location with easy access to an excellent selection of beautiful beaches and settled on the outskirts of the North York Moors National Park, 1 Princess Street makes for a wonderful dwelling for a group or family of eight who are looking for their next North Yorkshire escape.

Be welcomed into the well-equipped kitchen, where you can look forward to rustling up mouth-watering meals, ready to enjoy at the dining table for eight over a bottle of fizz.

Climb the stairs up to the first-floor where you can kick-back and relax on the plush seating in the sitting room, as you select a much-loved favourite from the TV.

On this floor you will find a well-appointed double bedroom, served by a shower room and separate WC.

Make your way up to the second floor, where you will discover two additional bedrooms, a double and a twin, both with access to a bathroom for those indulgent soaks after a day of exploring.

On the fourth floor, you will find the final bedroom, a spacious king size with its own kettle and en-suite shower room, so you will have all you need in one place!

In the morning, wake-up tired eyes with a steaming cup of coffee out on the rear patio as you ponder the day's adventures.

Explore the local town, where you will be well-catered for with a wide variety of pubs, restaurants and cafes, as well as convenience stores and supermarkets for stocking up on essentials.

Take your pick of glorious beaches to bathe on with the beaches of North Bay, South Bay and Scarborough right on your doorstep, or if that isn’t your thing, why not embark on a scenic walk along the renowned Cleveland Way, where you can expect some of the best coastal views in the area.

Enjoy the thrills of Luna Park and Alpamare, visit the medieval Scarborough Castle, settle down to enjoy a homemade picnic in Peasholm Park or catch a live performance at the unique Scarborough Open Air Theatre which rests in the middle of a lake.

Follow The Cinder Track over to Whitby, where you can climb the 199 Steps for panoramic views, explore the Gothic Whitby Abbey, try your hand at surfing or embark on a whale watching trip, what could be better?

For a memorable day trip, head to York, well-known for its magnificent York Minster, historic city walls and plethora of museums, fine dining and shopping opportunities.
