Whitby has become the one of the most popular destinations on the North Yorkshire coast. It 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 locally and numerous very good fish and chips shops including the celebrated Magpie Cafe. There is a good golf course on the cliffs between Sandsend and Whitby. Further to the south is Robin Hoods Bay and the lovely Victorian seaside town of Scarborough (home to the Stephen Joseph Theatre where Alan Ayckbourn premieres all his plays).

A visit to the area would not be complete without a trip to the North Yorkshire Moors (the spectacular scenery was 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.

About Anne Goode

Though from Yorkshire I now live in London but get back to the area often as we now own 3 holiday properties on the North Yorkshire coast. The Moorings is our latest and we've taken great pleasure in renovating the house throughout to a standard we think our guests will appreciate.

Anne Goode purchased this house in 2013

Why Anne Goode chose Whitby

We had been searching for the right house to buy in Whitby for a while when we came across The Moorings. It's in a perfect position right in the heart of Whitby so you can step out of the house and be enjoying a coffee in one of the several delightful cafes within just a couple of minutes. The house also has its own small parking area which as regular visitors to Whitby will know is a major advantage. Despite its central location it's situated in a peaceful, square just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the town to give visitors the best of both worlds.

simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

Having reached (at last) a period of my life when I don't have to compromise - the "Moorings " hit the spot perfectly as a nostalgic return to holidays with my mam and dad in Whitby - but in much better accommodation - the house is clean, well appointed and is in the dead centre of town - all of us oldies thoroughly enjoyed it - and we're back next year

Impressive and Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

As a family we love Whitby - and for a family birthday celebration we needed a convenient and large house for the stay. The description was perfect and what made the stay more enjoyable was the dedicated parking directly outside of the Moorings.

Internally it's lovely and cosy with amble space for all, well-appointed and great communication with the owner.

It's central location six mins walk to the harbour so quiet street but in easy reach of the town centre....Ideal

Everyone (aged 12 to 80 ) really loved the stay and wholeheartedly recommend staying at the Moorings. Many thanks Anne.

As back ground we had 4 days there and visited Runswick Bay (just up the cost) the beach is wonderful. Couple of days in Whitby town/Abbey/pubs and last day in Scarborough...Friday night meal was at the Marine and that was fab. ENJOY !

Great location and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Great location only a 10 min walk to beach, amusements and eateries. No need to take the cars out which was a real bonus. Well equipped house with plenty of bathrooms for large parties overall child friendly with secure back yard and a fantastic bakery at the end of the road for essentials.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. We think the location of the house is perfect too - close enough to be only a short walk to the harbour, beach, town, bars, cafes and restaurants but in a quiet square where you don't get noise late at night either. Bothams Bakery being just a stone's throw away is an added bonus - can highly recommend the lemon iced buns!
