  • "A brilliant week spent at Sterling House!"

    Great location & all amenities provided for a perfect family holiday. Good communication with owner too 're access & leaving property. Would definitely go back.

  • "Worked perfectly for us."

    Generous living space and the first floor bedroom with bathroom on this level was perfect for my elderly parents. Everything needed was in place at Sterling House. Lovely little garden protected from the wind supplied a small sun trap. On street parking was not an issue but maybe in school holidays? Hopefully will be back soon.

  • "A brilliant property, we stayed as two young families and there was plenty of space."

    House really well equipped, great kitchen area. This is a second and third floor property so the only frustration was cooking/drinking outside was a bit of a mission with plenty of trips up and down the stairs but the garden area itself is lovely with a lot more space than expected. We travelled with four children all under 10 and they are already asking when we can go back to their holiday house. Thanks for the perfect stay, just need the sunshine next time!

  • "A wonderful house in a good location."

    We were impressed by how well equipped, spacious, quiet and clean it was. And also that the owner rang us to check we had all the relevant information, as we booked just a couple of days before our stay. It was great being so close to the sea, good walks as well as being just a few minutes from a pub and shop, which had all that we needed for our 5 day stay. I’d like to add that we were keen to book with Sykes Cottages as they volunteered and arranged a full refund for a place we booked which had to be cancelled due to lockdown.

    Everything that we needed (and lots more besides) was provided and we'd happily stay again and recommend to others. We loved Robin Hood's Bay!

  • "Sterling House is an excellent base for exploring the N."

    Yorks coast. House is very well equipped (but bring own hairdryer). A bit of a squeeze for 8 adults sleeping, due to low sloping ceilings on top floor (particularly tight for far side of top floor double bed), but lower floor rooms good. We had no noise issues with ground floor or adjoining flats. Parking above average for RHB - often close to the property, or could always park just round the corner (about 200 yds), then nearer to property early evening or breakfast time. Very good communications with the owner. Overall, very well recomended.

  • "We had a great holiday and Sterling House was a perfect base."

    The information from the owner for check in made things very easy. There are a lot of stairs in the house, but that didn’t bother our holiday at all. Would definitely be back!

  • "Wonderful house, perfect for our 2 young families."

    Great location in RHB. The house was very clean, comfy beds and lovely bedding / towels. Garden really useful with 3 young children. House is actually more spacious than photos suggest. Would 100% recommend.

    The views out of the upstairs back bedroom are amazing and the location of the property worked well for us. The fishmonger in the village prepared some excellent treats too.

  • "We had a great stay at Sterling House."

    It's just the right size for 2 families of four, comfortable and well equipped. Communications with the owner good. Robin Hoods Bay itself is a great place for a holiday - it's a beautiful little village to explore, the beach is a 10 minute walk, there are plenty of places to eat and drink, and it never felt too crowded even in August. Recommend pizza at the Cove, beers at the Smugglers, the lovely view from the Victoria beer garden and oysters and prosecco at the Bramblewick. We managed to get free on street parking outside the house fairly often in the late afternoon. Only small gripe is that the tv stations available were very limited and certainly not sky as advertised, although we weren't too bothered by this.

  • "The house is lovely, well equipped and well located."

    We have stayed before. Just one niggle this time, the owner texted on our way up to say one of the showers wasn’t working and he was waiting for a plumber and would advise us when it was to be fixed. We heard nothing, and it was an inconvenience for a party of seven. I just wonder how long it has been out of action? A shame that a small but impactful detail was not attended to.

    Liked the 'welcome pack'. Kitchen/diner was good with the young children, better than a separate dining room. Good facilities and lots of crockery etc. Robin Hoods Bay nice to explore with big beach and rock pools when tide is out. Lots to do in the area.

    Clean, well equipped and lots of space - very helpful for our group which included 5 adults and a four year old and 11 month old! Lots of stairs and sloped ceilings in the upper floors. Nice spot in Robin Hoods Bay. A lovely little garden too which we enjoyed having lunch in. A mattress would have been useful for the travel cot! Many thanks

  • "Sterling House is a stunning holiday apartment."

    Overall the property is very light and airy and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was particularly well equipped which made for a very comfortable stay. We loved having a nice garden for BBQ's and eating our breakfast outside. Also, having the shops, beach and park all a short walk away really made the holiday for us.The older kids got to visit the village shops and park and explore by themselves which they loved. We dined in the Grosvenor Hotel which was very tasty and the portions were huge. We loved the Ghost Walk and would highly recommend this to any future guests. Our only disappointment was our day trips to Whitby where we encountered problems finding public toilets for our kids and Scarborough which seemed a little run down, with the shows and shops closed early. It's doesn't seem like the Scottish school holidays are catered for in these resorts. However, Robin Hoods Bay more than satisfied as a holiday destination and we would love to visit again.

The property

Set over the top two floors of a semi-detached Victorian villa, this property is in an enviable position at the top of Robin Hood's Bay.

Stairs lead up from a ground floor entrance hall to the light, airy living areas, which are superbly, sympathetically renovated, retaining traditional period features such as beautiful marble and cast iron fireplaces, high ceilings and stained glass windows.

Outside, the property boasts a well-established, rear south-facing garden, ideal for relaxing after a day at the beach.

A five minute stroll takes you down the steep, winding, cobbled streets to the coast, passing quaint cottages and a selection of eating houses and gift shops.

Stunning views over the magnificent cliffs can be enjoyed, with rock pooling and paddling on the beach, as well as superb walking, with the Cleveland Way and Coast to Coast long distance walks crossing here.

With the breathtaking North York Moors on the doorstep, this wonderful renovation is a fantastic alternative to traditional Yorkshire cottages, in an ideal family location.

About the location

ROBIN HOOD’S BAY

Whitby 6 miles; Scarborough 17 miles.

Robin Hood's Bay, with its narrow cobbled streets and quaint cottages, is one of the most picturesque villages on the English coastline. Situated between Scarborough and Whitby, this charming old fishing village is to be found nestling at the edge of a wide sweeping bay backed by spectacular cliffs and dramatic moorland scenery, and was once home to author Leo Walmsley. All holidaymakers will love the beach and its cliff-top walks, whilst more serious walkers will enjoy the many long distance trails that pass through the Cleveland Way, the Lyke Wake Walk and the Coast to Coast walks which all take in Robin Hood’s Bay. The village amenities are superb, with charming alleyways to explore and plenty of places to rest, relax and take refreshment. A perfect base for enjoying the Yorkshire Coast.
