The Moorings is a large stylish, comfortable holiday cottage offering self catering accommodation for up to 12 people in 6 double bedrooms (3 double and 3 twin rooms) in the heart of Whitby, North Yorkshire.

Northern England region
Whitby has become one of the most popular tourist destinations on the Yorkshire coast. With its busy harbour, quaint cobbled streets and long sandy beach it has something to offer everyone. The town is dominated by the cliff top ruins of its 13th century Abbey and famous for its connections with Captain Cook and Dracula. There are many good restaurants and numerous very good fish and chips shops including the celebrated Magpie Cafe.
A visit to the area would not be complete without a trip to the North Yorkshire Moors (the spectacular scenery was recently featured on Richard Wilson's 'Great British Drives' programme). The NYMR steam railway operates between Whitby and Pickering taking in some tremendous scenery which featured in the popular television series "Heartbeat" and the James Herriot books

"Fabulous house in a brilliant location."
We had an excellent holiday staying at ' The Moorings' for a week in July 2014. The superb accommodation is ideally situated for both the beach and Whitby itself. The house is extremely well appointed and very comfortable. Parking opposite the house is a definite plus as parking in and around Whitby is now either disc or pay and display. We managed to park 4 cars quite easily. There is a beautiful bakery very close and I can recommend Becketts on Skinner Street 2 mins away for coffee and cake! This was our first visit to ' The Moorings'. We have stayed in Whitby a number of times over the past few years but this is by far the best accommodation we have been in. We have already booked for next year!

"Extremely comfortable, stylish and well equipped house in great location"
Absolutely loved this house! It is a fantastic size and perfect layout for a large party and is beautifully presented, a lot of thought has clearly gone into making it a perfect holiday home.
The kitchen was stunning with its glossy units and granite worksurfaces and had everything you could possibly want away from home. Two stylish reception rooms with loads of seating meant there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax and the outdoor space with table, chairs and BBQ was well used even though the weather was not the best!
The bedrooms were all lovely - comfortable and spacious with plenty of storage and there were ample stylish bathrooms to go around.
The three parking spaces directly opposite were an absolute must as the house is right in the heart of Whitby although once parked the cars didn't see much action as everything is within walking distance.
This was our first visit to Whitby and we loved it and were really impressed with everything it had to offer. The Moorings is definitely the best holiday home we have stayed in and we will definitely be returning!

"Fantastic place to stay for a large family"
I stayed here with my children and grandchildren May 2014 The properly is decorated and furnished to a very high standard. There are plenty of sofas to sit back and relax in, and a large kitchen table we could all get round together. Everything feels very smart and spacious throughout the property. We had a fantastic long weekend here and everyone commented how they would like to come back again. Lovely place.

"Beautiful house in a wonderful location"
Just returned from a fantastic weekend at the Moorings. Our group consisted of 4 female friends in their forties and our 7 teenage children. The house was perfect for our group with 2 totally separate living rooms, one with video games, DVD player etc and the other which was perfect for the adults to retire with a glass of wine. The house had everything needed to self cater, with lovely large table that easily accommodated the 11 of us. House perfectly located a short walk from the centre of Whitby, and with some careful parking, you can actually get 4 cars into the parking area if one of them is small! We loved our stay here and would definitely return.

"Superb house in an ideal location!"
What a gorgeous 3 floor property in the heart of Whitby. A group of 8 of us booked in to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. It was pleasure from the minute we walked in, the entrance hall is huge which leads on to 2 large spacious living rooms and the large kitchen diner. It was immaculately clean with extremely comfortable beds. Even though the location is ideal for walking to the beach, pubs, bars and for fish & chips you also feel like you're a million miles away from anyone else. This is a compliment as there was no outside noise or nuisance from neighbours, us friends together could enjoy ourselves easily. Then as I said previously you head out and wander down past lovely little shops to the hustle and bustle of it all. Our cars were securely parked and we did not use them after we arrived. It is so easy to also go on a walk along the beach front.
We decided to hire a chef, www.nigelbrownchef.co.uk, to cook for us on the Saturday night. Perfection, would recommend without hesitation.
We are going to return with our young children.
Great communication from the owner, she telephoned prior to us going to explain final details and wish us a nice time. She was easy to email and responded quickly.
