    “Just returned from a weeks stay at ammonite, what a lovely place and couldn’t have asked for nicer accommodation.”

    Such a relaxing holiday and a perfect place to relax and unwind. ...

    Such a relaxing holiday and a perfect place to relax and unwind. The cottage is situated in an ideal location with lots of places to visit nearby. The cottage itself is immaculate with all essentials available. The furnishings and decor is high quality along with a beautiful garden over looking the sea. The owner had left us some thoughtful welcome presents including a bottle of Prosecco, ice, a lovely bunch of flowers and a bottle of milk. I thought this was a lovely touch and very greatly appreciated. The master bedroom is beautiful and spacious. The bed was comfortable even down to the pillows. The owner has definitely considered everything to ensure a homely feel. A welcome pack is left for the log fire which makes the cottages so warm and cosy after long walks. The living area is comfortable, a large corner settee, 4 seater dining table along with a smart tv. With the free WiFi a perfect place to watch Netflix or stream films if you have the personal accounts for these services. Perfect finishing touches to make it a home from home. I can see this is useful for anyone with kids if you have bad weather. The Cleveland way is on the doorstep and a lovely walk to nearby Staithes and Runswick Bay. There are so many places to explore nearby. I recommend the Cod and Lobster in Staithes and the Royal Hotel in Runswick. Both fantastic places to eat. I highly recommend a trip to the Badger Hounds which is the nearby pub definitely within walking distance. The food is outstanding especially the Sunday lunch along with a nice atmosphere. It is also dog friendly so you can take the pooch along for a lovely lunch or evening meal. Another recommendation is the hairdressers in the village, I had forgot my hairdryer and straighteners so booked in for a blow dry which was very reasonably priced. Just thought I would mention that in case anyone is forgetful like me and never packs the essentials! Overall this is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed and I would highly recommend to anyone. If you are like me and spend hours looking for accommodation, reading every review you can to ensure you make the right choice then this is definitely it! I will definitely be returning as soon as possible.

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.
