  • "A very cosy comfortable cottage."

    Had everything we needed. It is very conveniently located in the old town area, a 5 minute walk from the harbour and town centre and near to the castle. It was very quiet and peaceful area of the town. Beds were very comfy. We would definitely return.

    Good quality furnishings throughout. Same comments as others re the sofa. Bedrooms were lovely. Kitchen fantastically well equipped. Some sugar would have helped otherwise it had all the necessities. We had a great time and thank you. We would return again.

  • "Lovely cottage in a convenient location."

    Very clean and tidy with nice extra touches such as toilet roll, kitchen roll and washing up liquid. Great to have a parking disc and scratch cards, always got a parking space. Very easy booking process with Sykes, confirmed straight away and kept updated throughout, will definitely book again.

  • "Stayed in High Tides cottage in Scarborough which was really lovely A very cosy warm cottage fully equipped with everything needed for a week away, was up a lot of steps (spreight lane steps) in Scarborough but was well worth its position as so peaceful and quiet A gem of a find."

  • "Great cottage in character location."

    Two niggly things that precluded an excellent review, sofa very uncomfortable, blind in double bedroom needs replaced did not block out street light and room occupants visible from outside

  • "The little house was very good well furnished and very clean ,the only drawback from our point of view was the stairway was very steep and the elderly may find that very daunting."

    Having said that the bedrooms were lovely and very comfortable beds,we have already booked with you for next May down in somerset

  • "The cottage was lovely and well presented on arrival."

    Having a 2 & 4 year old we felt the stairs were a little steep so would recommend taking a portable stair gate/net for night time. Also worth noting from a young kids point of view, the bathroom is downstairs and it doesn’t have a dish washer! ;-) We did have a lovely time and the location is right in middle with access to North or South Bay. Again worth noting they’re are several steps up to the cottage which aren’t really suitable for a pushchair (which I hadn’t really thought through!) but all in all a lovely little cottage and pleasant stay. :-)

  • "The kitchen was poorly equipped, the cooking utensils were very poor quality they bent when you tried to use them."

    The seating in the living room was not very comfortable. The bathroom was great and the location was good.

The property

Set on the famous Spreight Lane Steps which lead up to St Marys Church where you will find the grave of English novelist Anne Brontë and far-reaching views of the glorious coast is this contemporary, mid-terrace cottage.

High Tides oozes style and elegance from the moment you walk through the front door and is perfectly-equipped for a family holiday to this part of Yorkshire with both coast and the countryside of the North York Moors National Park to enjoy.

Step into the sitting room and look forward to snuggling up on the sofa and tuning into the TV, whilst the electric fire fills the room with a gentle warmth after an action-packed afternoon.

Beyond here is the contemporary kitchen which comes with all the essentials to cook up a storm for you and your loved ones, to be enjoyed at the dining table whilst you share your wonderful holiday moments and cheers to the next couple of days.

Concluding the ground floor is a utility and a gleaming family bathroom, boasting a shower over bath, basin and WC.

Head up the staircase to retire to one of the well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a king-size double and a twin, each designed with a refreshing ambiance to wake up to each morning and to prepare for your day in style.

The exterior boasts a small courtyard area, ideal for letting the dog stretch its legs or catching the final glimpses of sunshine with a glass of wine before heading to bed.

Scarborough is littered with culinary delights, catering to all palettes and budgets, whether it be sampling freshly-caught seafood in a fine-dining restaurant or enjoying fish and chips as your meander down to the seafront.

Brush up on the local history by discovering the Scarborough Castle and the Rotunda Museum of geology, or for something more leisurely enjoy the seaside traditions of South Bay or head to North Bay to admire the award-winning beach huts.

Alternatively, venture to the National Park where you will find a number of walking and cycling opportunities, or enjoy a day trip to the wonders of Whitby.

High Tides is an outstanding base for your next Yorkshire seaside escape.
