This delightful cottage situated in the pretty village of Wass in the North York Moors National Park is ideal for families or friends looking for a relaxing and active holiday with walks available from your doorstep. This small village is surrounded by breathtaking countryside and lies at the foot of Wass Bank and the beautiful ruins of the 12th century Byland Abbey is less than a mile away. You can discover the walking, running, and cycling routes near Wass Moor and Wass Wood. There's always something happening in the area, with festivals and fairs held throughout the year.

A characterful two-storey cottage with lots of charm and character, which has all the home comforts you would expect to ensure a memorable stay. Enter through the hallway, which has stairs leading to the first floor. On the ground floor is a cosy lounge for you all to enjoy quality time together. The lounge boasts two leather sofas, a Smart TV, and a wood burner for staying toasty on cooler evenings. There is a door leading form the lounge to the patio. The contemporary kitchen has all the appliances for you to cook up a storm. Upstairs you'll find a gallery-style landing leading to two double bedrooms, a twin bedroom, and a bathroom. Outside is a large garden with a patio and furniture to enjoy relaxing outside on sunny afternoons and evenings.

Perfectly located, the property is 20 miles from York, and you catch the regular bus service. Sutton Bank National Park (5.5 miles) is great for walking with the famous White Horse and breathtaking views over The Vale of York.

Lovely cottage, very clean, well equipped and opposite a pub serving great food. Convenient for many attractions and interesting walks. The garden was particularly useful for late night dog tiddles rather than walk the streets (many without pavements). The owner was very responsive when there was a minor issue.

Delightful property and responsive helpful owner. Our family shared a wonderful week there. Beautiful countryside and local wildlife. Ideal for running, walking and cycling. The garden apples were the best I ve ever tasted too.

We had a very comfortable and happy stay at Melrose Cottage. We had everything we needed in the Cottage and thought the Welcome goodies were particularly good. We enjoyed exploring the area and the cottage gave easy access to lots of things to do.

The cottage was excellent in every respect, and included little touches such as the welcome basket, the board games and books, we had a lovely holiday.
