“Ideal family holiday destination”
Reviewed July 24, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The Moorings is a lovely large house which suited our family group of 9 plus our dog perfectly. The location of the house is superb with just a short walk to the beach, town centre and harbour etc. The 3 allocated parking spaces directly in front of the house are a massive bonus and make life so much easier.
The rooms are nice and spacious and include a huge table in the kitchen with room for everyone. The kitchen is very well equipped and leads out to the secluded rear courtyard where there is a good sized table and plenty of chairs for sitting out in the sunshine.
Anne the owner is a delight and made the whole booking and arrangement process so easy.
We would certainly recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Whitby.

“Brilliant Find”
Reviewed March 15, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed with a group of girls last weekend and what a lovely place this is. The house is large and comfortable with plenty of space for a group. The kitchen is fully kitted out including a wine cooler - vital for a girls weekend.

The rooms are all lovely with fantastic bathrooms and in a great location.

We will definitely look to go there again and can highly recommend this for a group holiday or families. It even comes with 3 car parking spaces adjacent to the property which is a rarety in Whitby.

It is only a short stroll to the centre of Whitby.

“Beautiful house; stunning location ”
Reviewed March 6, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

What a beautifully appointed house for a weekend away in Whitby. We celebrated a special birthday with friends- six couples in all. The owners have created a spacious, light and airy house and have thought of everything. Plenty of bathrooms and a large kitchen that could seat us all. We loved the two living areas- meaning men and women got some time apart too! But both spacious enough to seat us all. The owner dealt with us really efficiently and we found the arrival set up very easy indeed. Great to have parking spaces too, right on the doorstep of the shops, bars and beaches. Very handy and even a bit of a view of the abbey from the attic room. We loved every minute and are already planning a return. The Moorings would be brilliant for families too. Thanks Anne.

“Perfect house near centre of Whitby”
Reviewed February 29, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Stayed for a weekend in January. There were ten of us, extended family with ages ranging from 12 to 76. The house was perfect for us with 2 lounges, large kitchen, 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The house was well equipped with TVs, DVD player, games console, Wi-Fi and kitchen appliances. It was a short walk to the centre of Whitby and within 100 yards of the house there is a pub, bakers, off-license, newsagents & cafe. Everyone really enjoyed it and we look forward to returning.

“Perfect house for our excellent weekend !”

I just wanted to write and say that we have had a fantastic weekend in Whitby and The Moorings made it extra special.

The accommodation was exactly what we wished for and more ! What a beautiful house you have, so well laid out and beautifully appointed !

The two reception rooms were ideal , with space to spread out and not be on top of each other, and the kitchen was superb for our meals and as is usually the case, became the hub of the home !!

I would certainly recommend you to anyone who wants a house that size, and I could see us booking it again in the future !! In fact my daughter and niece were trying to plan another get together before we left !!
