We stayed at the Ammonite for a weekend of coastal walking in the area and it met our needs nicely.
Ammonite is a small friendly place and our host was very welcoming. Our room was a good size with plenty of storage and good ventilation. The bed and pillows were good and the curtains successfully kept out what little light was around at night. The morning breakfast was tasty, varied and very plentiful. leaving the house hungry did not appear to be an option.
Where the Ammonite really won us over was it's location. You are a five minute walk (ten minute amble) from the pubs and restaurants of the Village centre, but as compensation you are on the prettiest, quietest no-through road you can imagine (picture attached). Compared to East Street, which appeared to be manic with traffic all day and night, this was heaven and the short walk into the Village was a very small price to pay for the peace and quiet we enjoyed at Ammonite.
As a base for walking and enjoying the surrounding countryside, this worked very well for us, and would happily return.
