Area Information

Wass

The village of Wass is located within the district of Ryedale in the North York Moors National Park. This small village is surrounded by breathtaking countryside, lying at the foot of Wass Bank with the beautiful ruins of Byland Abbey only a short walk away. The abbey was constructed in 1135 and is believed to be one of the best examples of 12th century churches in Europe, making it an ideal pitstop while you explore the area on bike or by foot. The village itself has a great sense of community with the local pub, the Wombwell Arms providing a welcome retreat at the end of a long day exploring.


There's always something happening in the area, with festivals and fairs are held throughout the year. For more information on Wass and the surrounding area and local events see our North York Moors Guide and the Festivals & Events Guide.
