A splendid Victorian town house with spectacular panoramic views, offering superb family accommodation over four floors. The house sleeps 12 guests with six bedrooms, fabulous décor and exceptional sea views – plus a charming beach hut is available! - located in a quiet residential sea-front area, a short stroll to the town centre. A perfect house for a superb seaside holiday.

The house is in an excellent location with fabulous views from the front windows

It is handy to walk down to the beach and North Bay seafront, as well as into town for pubs and restaurants. There is a One Stop shop and a decent pub within a couple of minutes walk. There is plenty of crockery, cutlery, glasses etc for a large group, everyone can sit round the dining table and there is seating for all in the large lounge. The parking needs to be clarified - yes, it isn’t always easy to find a spot immediately outside, but we never had any major problems and had four cars parked within a minute’s walk for most of the holiday. We ran out of parking permits but were able to purchase more at the hotel next door - they’re only £2 for 4 days so not expensive. There were a couple of temporary issues at the house which needed fixing - and Sykes were very quick to organise a plumber to fix the toilet which had broken. However, there were also several missing light bulbs, and a door handle had come off one of the bathroom doors, obviously a number of weeks previous to our visit, but nothing had been done to fix this, which meant it was possible to get stuck in the bathroom if you weren’t careful. I reported these issues to Sykes at the start of the week, but no action had been taken by the end of our week’s stay. However, these issues, whilst annoying, didn’t spoil the overall holiday experience. A previous reviewer mentioned that one of the bedrooms is very much larger and nicer than the others; this is true, but the other rooms are also en-suite and perfectly comfortable. Definitely a property worth considering if you want a seaside holiday in a well-equipped, comfortable house, with fantastic views and good access to a lovely sandy beach.

Mrs Schouten
The house is in a fantastic location . However the house needs a bit of maintenance to make the stay great. It’s a great shame as we paid a great amount of money for the week, :- First floor shower leaks considerably into the main hall on ground floor. When this was noticed we told everyone not to use it. Which caused a nuisance as the shower in the ensuite of the smaller room on second floor was very reluctant to produce enough water to actually shower adequately. The door handle in ensuite to large bedroom on second floor was not attached to door. This was noticed and all week was wedged open for safety. Back garden as mentioned in details was not used all week as very uninviting. Partly because the occupant of ground floor flat kept going in and out. Also the stairs down to the garden are not very nice and quite scary to use. The curtains in the back small bedroom on second floor we’re extremely stained. No handle on small fridge in kitchen,. This was difficult to open as we needed the extra fridge as there were a lot of us. The children could not open it neither could my wife who only has one hand that functions probably . All in all these things spoilt our week we would not come again. It’s a real shame that these faults were not addressed before. Someone had previously put on your feedback about the door handle to ensuite and a child was traumatised by being locked in. So clearly nobody reads these reviews. So would like it noted to the owners of your lack of reporting.
Mr Severs
Beautiful house, with excellent furniture and equipment making for a great holiday. The only problems were small issues such as the doorbell being on the floor when we arrived and some handles on the doors & cupboards being loose or have actually fallen off. However this did not prevent us having a wonderful holiday As the house is fabulous , beautifully furnished and in an excellent position .
Mrs Jones
A lovely house with plenty of room for everyone and we had a lovely week’s holiday. People should be aware that it is on 4 floors and is at the top of a steep hill/cliff.
Mrs Mccallum
The house was perfect for an extended family gathering (6 adults & 6 kids)with plenty of room for all of us. The living and sleeping areas were wonderful, especially the master bedroom! The views over the north bay from the living room were fantastic and the kids really enjoyed the play room. We hope to come back next year!
Mrs Greig
Accommodation is very tired. There were a number of issues with various showers and the toilets on the top floor, all of which had been advised previously and which had not been addressed. The check-in and out times are very limiting and effectively mean that although you pay for 7 days you are only in the accommodation for 6 days. Parking is a nightmare, although this can't be addressed.
Mr Rain
Where to start really? Firstly, the specific things. The door handle on the inside of the 'master bedroom' had been removed and left to one side - we found this out the hard way very early on; Our yougest (7) went to the loo in there - and because the doors are so heavy the door immediately closed behind him. Although he was in there no more than 5 minutes before we realised it was enough time for him to get into a genuine panic. I'll freely admit that that particular experience will probably inform the rest of this feedback. The Parking situation was awful - it's 'zoned' resident only parking, and on arrival every single zoned space was taken. This meant we had to park all 3 cars quite a way from the property - and then stress over making sure we'd got them all moved before 9am the next day before the wardens went on patrol. We had two (why only 2?) car 'discs' that would give us a two hour grace period, so we had to move 1 car by 9am and the other 2 by 11am. The Saturday was a lovely day weather wise, and we'd much rather have been out and about than parking space watching... Thankfully we did find spaces in the 'Zone', but then realised we'd not been given enough permits (they last for 4 days for some reason), so the Monday was spent trying to get hold of Sykes/House keepers etc to try and get more permits. My Parents found tablets under their bed, so this could have been very serious for families with toddlers or young children. The last particular issue we had is that (and this isn't particularly clear on the website) one bedroom in this property is vastly superior to the rest. This means for two or more families who have all paid equal shares, that there's a very difficult decision around who gets the 'nice' room. I'd suggest 'Heads or Tails' for two families and 'Rock, Paper, Scissors' for larger groups. The rooms themselves are quite tired looking and in need of redecoration by a professional decorator rather than the mismatched paint touch ups and the extremely dodgy wall paper job they have received! The aforementioned 'Master Bedroom' is the nicest -- Sea Views and large en-suite (without a toilet door handle on the inside) For the high price paid we expected at least the 'basics' to be in place. This was most certainly not the case. All in all, very disappointing and not a little bit stressful.
Mr O'brien
The house was exactly as expected but the first floor living room had not been cleaned and there was a bad leak in the roof. I would have like more of the windows to open, but the location was amazing
Mrs Ayres
We had a great stay here for the last week, great house. Legs are definitely more toned after all the stairs. Will be recommending the house to family and friends
The Culter Family
Once we got in we found the accommodation lived up to our expectations and more. Superb house for a large family which we all thoroughly enjoyed.
Mr Ludford
Victoria House was delightful, it was so well prepared for our visit we were very impressed. Everyone really enjoyed their holiday, we played golf, went to the theatre and even travelled on the steam train which broke down on the way back from Whitby. I would like to complement you and your company for making our holiday so memorable
Mr Alan Lucas & family - September 2018
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house, the whole family enjoyed it and the views were perfect. We will certainly book with you again Yorkshire Coastal Cottages.
The Thompsons.Weetons plus family - October 2017
A fantastic house, thank you for a wonderful holiday, we will book again.
The Heron family - August 2017
This was the best property we have stayed in in Scarborough, we loved it, it is perfect in every way.
Alan & Diane Peters & family - August 2017
I rented Victoria House in Scarborough last weekend for myself and an extended family party. I wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed staying in the house. It was beautifully presented and lived up to the photos on the website. It is spacious and light and was made even more pleasant by some kind touches from the owners such as milk and wine in the fridge and a range of local treats. The layout of the property with the living room on the first floor is ideal for elevated sea views. We were a group ranging in age from teenagers to Grandma and the house provided plenty of space for everyone to gather together but also have their own space when required! Thanks very much, a highly recommended property.
