This manor house began life as a guesthouse for visitors to the Carthusian priory which was established in North Yorkshire in 1398. Monastic life at Mount Grace came to an abrupt end in 1539 when the priory was closed following the Dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII. The priory was sold and the religious buildings were partially dismantled. Much of the site remained in ruins, but the guesthouse was repaired and became a substantial manor house.

This manor house was originally Mount Grace Priory’s guest house. It was converted into a home in the 17th century and then extended and refurbished in the Arts and Crafts style at the end of the 19th century by Sir Lowthian Bell.

Thanks for English Heritage, visitors may wander through the rooms, hallways and attics of the Arts and Crafts manor house and enjoy eclectic interiors where William Morris’ designs complement original medieval and restored 17th century features.

Tucked away at the foot of the Cleveland Hills in North Yorkshire, Mount Grace Priory, House and Gardens is the perfect place to get away from it all.

Whitby’s old lighthouse and fog horns stand 240 feet above sea level on the cliff top near the North Yorkshire coastal town. The fog horns were decommissioned by Trinity House in 1988 with an electric hooter taking their place. The original lighthouse, opened in 1858, would have been run on paraffin but in 1976 it was electrified and then fully automated in 1992.

The lighthouse is located beside the Cleveland Way coastal footpath between Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay.
