Charming and comfortable with lovely special touches
Melrose Cottage was cosy, comfortable and well appointed with many thoughtful touches that made our stay just about perfect. Great home base for long rambles. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
Fantastic cottage and amazing location.
Lovely house very comfortable and enjoyed such a big garden - super for the children.
Good location, owners very helpful. Would visit again.
Very comfortable and cosy cottage, and lovely garden for our dog. Thank you for lovely weather pack and flowers! Enjoyed our stay in this friendly village. Great take away fish and chips from Stapylton Arms and superb Sunday lunch at Fairfax arms in Gilling - extremely dog friendly establishment. Lots of lovely dog walks from doorstep.
Lovely cottage, shame it rained all week but didn't spoil our stay!!! Thank you very much the dog loved it
We have enjoyed our stay at Melrose cottage. Lots of places of interest to visit. Unfortunately weather somewhat cold and grey. Thank you for welcome pack
We arrived here on Monday in need of a break. We will go home so happy on the wings of a dove
A lovely few days in Wass, we've crammed a lot in, long walks a meal at the Stapylton and White Swan, both delicious. Thank you for all the welcoming treats at Melrose Cottage!
Melrose cottage has been the perfect Christmas retreat. The cottage was beautifully decorated on our arrival. Fantastic pub just across the way and the snow was the icing on the cake. Thank you
Lovely time in the cottage, lots of medieval things to visit. Everything we could need in the cottage. Thank you
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.
