The village is just a short stroll away on cobblestone streets where you can shop and try out some restaurants and pubs. The coast is just a stone’s throw away from the village, where you can go to the beach to relax and have fun. Various marine life gathers in rock pools during high tide and can be safely observed. You may also wish to walk the cliffs overlooking some breathtaking views of the North York Moors. The whole Yorkshire coast is available to you and your family, all from the luxury and comfort of Sterling House. Travelling to neighbouring Scarborough and Whitby is also quick and easy.

Lovely comfortable place ideal to explore robin hoods bay.

A TripAdvisor Member

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.

Mrs Briggs

House much better than picture in brochure. Good location. Plenty of room for 8 adults. Kitchen well equipped.

House was generally excellent and very clean. A great base for exploring the area.

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.

Nice large property suitable for a large party, excellent facilities and position in the village.

Mrs Whysall

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.

Mr Siegal

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.

Accommodation was excellent throughout, modern, clean and well equipped.

Mr Gilliver

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.

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.

Mrs Rushworth

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.

Mrs Noonan

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.

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 accomodation in good position with excellent amenities.

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.

Great place and great location

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.


ideal location and facilities.

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.

A warm and well equipped holiday home

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.

Great house at the top of the bay

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.


One of the best properties we have stayed in

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.
