Holiday home Set over the first and second floors of a semi-detached Victorian villa, this holiday accommodation is situated in an enviable position at the top of Robin Hood's Bay. With light and airy living areas that have been sympathetically renovated, the property retains traditional period features such as beautiful marble and cast iron fireplaces, high ceilings and stained glass windows. With four bedrooms – two double and two twin – as well as a large kitchen with dining area and cosy living room, the property is well suited to groups of both family and friends. Outside, the property boasts a well-established, south-facing garden.
Area With its narrow cobbled streets and quaint cottages, Robin Hood's Bay is one of the most picturesque villages on the English coastline. Set between Scarborough and Whitby, this charming settlement is located on a wide, sweeping bay backed by spectacular cliffs and dramatic moorland scenery. With numerous, relatively easy walks along the cliff top and more challenging routes such as the Cleveland Way, the Lyke Wake Walk and the Coast to Coast Walks, all levels of ramblers will be catered for. With superb village amenities, charming alleyways to explore and plenty of places to rest, this is perfect base from which to enjoy the Yorkshire Coast.
Region The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

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.

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.

Robin Hoods Bay is a fun place to be and the house is in an exception situation to make the most of the town and the surrounding area..
Stayed here with extended family for RHB Victorian Weekend. House is idea for large groups. It is clean and modern and very comfortable.
Those little extras supplied by the owners of tea and coffee and milk in the fridge - as well as all cleaning products much appreciated.
Only had two nights there but would gladly spend more time here - would book again.

Ms Braley, December 2019
Excellent accommodation very helpful owner..
Great house in a great place
Enjoyed staying at Sterling House with family for a weeks holiday exploring 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!
Lovely house.. 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.
The house had everything we needed for our stay and was in a great location.. The only thing we had a problem with was trying to find somewhere to park near the property.
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.
Very comfortable family house at the top of Robin Hoods bay next to Grosvenor hotel. Geat garden which is sunny in the morning and up to about 7 in the evening. Opposite the Station car park which is convenient because parking outside the property is a bit hit and miss. The Cinder cycle track between Whitby and Scarborough runs past the house and the X93 bus runs every 30 mins between Scarborough and Whitby
Very well equiped kitchen, Very nice and helpful owners, Very clean and comfortable 4 bedroom house. Hight recommended
Great place to stay.. Ideal locatioon for exploring Whitby and Scarbourough on foot, on bikes or by car. House was very comfortabal and well equiped. Very clean and I would highly recommend
Very well equipped, clean and spacious house - perfect for our group..
A fantastic house for entertaining with friends or family
House was absolutely perfect, warm, spotless and great location. Went fossil hunting, walking and went on Rose's ghost tour of the village. Was perfect for a group of 6 friends.
We recently stayed at the post house
Lovely comfortable place ideal to explore robin hoods bay.
A fantastic property, stunning inside with everything you need. Clean and beautifully furnished and a great location. Would definitely recommend.
Sterling House was a real home from home. There was everything we needed and plenty of room so that we weren't on top of each other. It was well situated with just a steady walk down to the beach.
Great location for Robin Hood's Bay, the coast and the moors. Spacious, well equipped and finished to a high standard. Bedrooms all a good size and the ability to choose how the beds were configured in two rooms was a real bonus when travelling with three generations. Warm and cosy, despite high ceilings. Stairs up to the flat and then up to the top floor for 3 of the 4 bedrooms should be considered if anyone is not so mobile. We didn't use the garden as it was October, but it had table, chairs and privacy.
Beautiful, clean and very well equipped house in a fantastic location. Already recommended to family and friends.
Lovely property and great area.
Lovely apartment in an ideal setting. Very good to have two full bathrooms. Very clean. Appreciated the stack of crockery, which meant we never ran out.
Beautiful property in great location
Great flat on the top two floors of the former sea captains house. Well converted, retaining original fireplaces and tiles throughout and well equipped. Has its own entrance at the side of the house, leading to hall on the ground floor and space to leave sandy walking boots! Good living space - living room with two 3 seater sofas, coffee table and TV with cable channels. Through kitchen dining room, with very well equipped kitchen, including dishwasher and washing machine. Two bedrooms face the front of the house, one on top floor at the back has views towards the bay over the rooftops of other houses.
Two full bathrooms, both with showed and separate bath. All well maintained and clean. Free on street parking - limited number of spaces - but close to main car park, reasonable charges 9-6 each day.
Only a couple of minor downsides. No lamp in living room and tall people are likely to bang heads on the low ceilings on the top floor.
Great walking from RHB on the Cleveland Way path and old railway cinder track. Great walks to Ravenscar and Whitby. We ate at the Wayfarer (excellent) one night. Pub has great bay views. Sainsbury's in Whitby isn't far to stock up on food. Would stay again and recommend highly.
The property was the biggest, most important part of our stay as we know the bay really well. We were not disappointed. I would highly recommend this property and hope to return. We were 6 adults and 2 children and we all thought we could quite easily live in this property.
The house is very warm and comfortable, nicely decorated and you can walk down into Robin Hood's Bay. We were here in winter and the house was excellent. Would definitely go again.
Immaculate accommodation in great location. Decorated and furnished to a very high standard, and cleanliness like I have never seen in a rented property. Very impressed.
A warm comfortable cottage with well equipped kitchen. Very clean. A good location to explore local area.
Accommodation was excellent throughout, modern, clean and well equipped.
This is a spacious house and it has been decorated and furnished to a very high and modern standard. This is by far the most clean and modern holiday cottage/house we have ever stayed in. The bed linen and towels were lovely. It is in a great location at the top of the village, and we had no real trouble parking. We would definitely like to come and stay here again.
The accommodation was excellent, in a prime location at the top of the bay and near to country walks.
The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels. All in all a great place to stay!
A lovely place at the edge of a lovely village. We felt very well and would any time come back.
Property was really really nice and if we return to the area we will definitely use again.
The property was tastefully decorated, very comfortable and very well situated for enjoying Robin Hoods Bay. Loved it.
An ideal location for walking the Cleveland Way.
This house was great - it had everything to make holidaying with 3 young children easy. It was bright, with plenty of space, with a well equipped kitchen. The location was also very good, with walks on your doorstep, and close to lots of things to see and do.
A very comfortable house with lots of space in a great location.
The house is very well equipped, especially the kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. The location is good, right at the top of the hill for walking to the bay with good natural light into the house. The house was exceptionally clean with very good central heating.
Nice large property suitable for a large party, excellent facilities and position in the village.
Very clean property, with all amenities we needed.

A three generation family: we all enjoyed our stay in Sterling House. Four bedrooms and two bathrooms fully utilised as well as excellent kitchen facilities. Parking was not a problem and the garden very useful. Also useful for local shop and pubs.
The property was light and spacious with some pleasant views. The flat was well located for walking to the old village and nearby paths (Cleveland Way and Cinder Track), and for driving to other towns and attractions. It was also close to pubs and restaurants for outside dining.
The place is great and the location great. Robin Hoods Bay is a fantastic location with lots to do for Adults and Children alike. The apartment is fantastic and well equipped. We had a problem with the fire alarm that was promptly delt with. Unfortunately the neighbors in the apartment bellow were noisy on a couple of nights and woke us up coming home, presumably from the pub, and arguing.
The decor was very nice and in keeping with the property. The bedrooms were clean and fitted the requirements and the bathrooms were lovely. It was a great house and I would go back again and again.
House was generally excellent and very clean. A great base for exploring the area.
The house, its position and the location.
Lovely modern property with fantastic access to Robin Hoods Bay as well as Whitby and the surrounding area.
Accomodation was good, clean and better than anticipated.
Situated at the top of the hill in Robin Hood's bay near restaurants and hotels, a great base for exploring the beautiful coastline of North Yorkshire.
Loved the accommodation as it was well equipped, comfortable and spacious. It was very convenient for visits to lots of different places in the area. Parking was easier than I expected despite having two cars.
Great location of property, newly renovated. Great quality accommodation.
The lovely character of the house and the quaint beauty of Robin Hoods Bay -
pictures do not do Sterling House justice!!
Comfortable and well equipped flat in a great location.
House much better than picture in brochure. Good location. Plenty of room for 8 adults. Kitchen well equipped.
The house was well equipped exactly what we needed. There were 8 of us the 2 bathrooms were ideal - particularly as they were separate not en-suite. This is a great house, lovingly restored the finish is lovely.
