  • “Ammonite Cottage is the best dog ...”

    Ammonite Cottage is the best dog friendly holiday cottage we have been to. The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable. The view from the garden is lovely.

    Ammonite Cottage is the best dog friendly holiday cottage we have been to. The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable. The view from the garden is lovely. There are lots of places to visit around the area - Staithes being our favourite, closely followed by Sandsend.

The property

Ammonite Cottage is located in the quiet coastal hamlet of Port Mulgrave in the top NE corner of the North York Moors National Park.

With its far-reaching sea views, the Cleveland Way just a 2-minute walk away and private parking for two cars, Ammonite Cottage serves as an excellent base from which to explore North Yorkshire’s magnificent Heritage Coastline and the beautiful North York Moors countryside.

Whilst semi-rural and well tucked away from the coastal tourism hustle and bustle, the charming seaside fishing villages of Runswick Bay and Staithes are situated just 5 minutes away by car or less than an hour away on foot via a bracing cliff-top walk along the Cleveland Way.

The coastline between Staithes and Whitby is a beachcombers’ paradise world-renowned for its 175 million Jurassic era fossils including an abundance of ammonites and belemnites.

The kitchen is modern and spacious with a practical central island completing the layout.

Just off the kitchen you’ll find the family bathroom finished with stylish black tiles, a contemporary washbasin and a shower over the bath.

After a rewarding but tiring day of venturing along coastline and through countryside, you can relax in the spacious and luxuriously appointed lounge whilst warming yourself by a wood-burning stove.

The ground floor also houses a well-presented double bedroom.

The master bedroom on the first floor features a generous king-size bed and open sea views from a Velux roof window.

The large adjacent landing area off which the bedroom is accessed features a dressing table and chair lit by 2 more Velux roof windows with sea views providing the ideal place to get ready for the day ahead.

Immediately off the lounge you can venture outside and relax on your own private deck with a refreshing drink, or take a stroll down the garden all the time enjoying the far-reaching sea views out over the North Sea.

The close-by villages of Hinderwell and Staithes offer good local amenities including a co-op, butcher, several pubs and a petrol station.

A little further away 8 miles down the coast sits the historic fishing town of Whitby with its world-famous abbey and wide variety of shops, cafes and restaurants.

An ideally situated cottage with spectacular sea views from which to explore the fascinating and dramatic Heritage Coastline as well as the glorious North York Moors countryside.

About the location


Staithes 1.5 miles; Runswick Bay 1.6 miles; Whitby 9 miles.

Once a thriving port, Port Mulgrave now offers a quiet coastal retreat, with superb sea views and clifftop walks to the fishing village of Staithes or to pretty Runswick Bay. A few miles south is the popular holiday town of Whitby, famous for its fish and chips, which offers winding streets, hidden alleys, a picturesque harbour, safe sandy beaches and of course, the Abbey, reached by the famous 199 steps. The North York Moors National Park is practically on the doorstep, where you can watch the steam trains of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Alternatively visit the peaceful village of Goathland (Aidensfield in the TV programme ‘Heartbeat’), or, for thrills and spills, Flamingo Land near Malton. A truly family friendly destination.
