Description

A quaint, compact Grade II listed, semi-detached, former coaching inn, close to the centre of the pretty village of Wrelton. Full of character, the cottage has flagged floors, beamed ceilings and an original cast iron range. The open plan living area has a cosy woodburning stove, perfect for winter nights, whilst outside, the sunny south-facing patio is lovely for relaxing on a summer's evening. A perfect hideaway for a romantic week away! This small but very comfortable and charming property is surrounded by nearby market towns and the stunning countryside of the North York Moors. The historic minster city of York and the east coast are both within very easy reach and well worth a visit. A great base for touring round the whole area. Note: This property is next to Ref. 1577 and booked together they can accommodate 7 people.
Just three miles from the historic market town of Pickering is the small, pretty village of Wrelton. Clustered around two village greens where the annual summer fete is held every August, this charming settlement is composed of a variety of small shops and an excellent pub which serves meals. Wrelton offers great walking in the local countryside and is within easy distance of the North York Moors which provide a stunning backdrop to any rambling trip. The market towns of Helmsley and Malton are nearby whilst just three miles away visitors can enjoy the local steam railway and Pickering Castle. The historic city of York is within a reasonable distance and offers an array of historic attractions, including the medieval shopping street, the Shambles.

‘We arrived late after car trouble and were pleased to find that Wrelton is a beautiful little village with lots of character. The owner of the cottage was friendly / approachable and showed us to Croft Head Cottages only entrance which is a traditional low door (I am 6'1" and the top of the door met my eye brows) and so bobbing down was necessary for me and our teenage son but my wife managed to clear it with a bit to spare. On entering the cottage we found the compact kitchen/lounge/diner which includes an attractive fire place & log burner. The kitchen area of the room was equipped with a free standing cooker, washing machine, fridge and microwave oven but little available cupboard space. The sofa and accompanying chairs appeared to be a little ' tired ' and were not as comfortable as we are used to. When I opened the door to the stairs I was a little surprised at how steep and uneven they appeared to be (the wife had forgotten to mention that aspect) . I was able to ascend the stairs with a little effort but had to be more aware of my footing on the way down because some steps were higher than others (the properties only WC / BATHROOMS are upstairs) . Watch out for a couple of low beams upstairs. Our stay was relatively peaceful but punctuated by a few sessions of noisy aircraft manoeuvres from the local RAF air bases - I understand that this issue is totally out of the owners control and only mention it in the interest of an honest review of our stay. The cottage on the whole was clean and tidy with some attractive features but some of the furnishings were tired and in need of owner attention - not least the mattress on the double bed which was uncomfortable and seemed to have some kind of structure down its middle which at times made us feel like we were falling out of bed. Everything said this cottage offers value for money in an area where accommodation can be very costly but personally speaking l like a little more space and comfort and so l would not consider staying here again.... SORRY.’

‘Owner had vouchers ready for us when we arrived for local attractions we could snip from the local newspaper. Property is well located for trips to Flamingoland, Scarborough and Whitby via the steam train which the kids loved and was a great family day. At the same time their are plenty of historic abbeys or York is half hour drive with park and ride into the town. The local pub was very friendly, but a bit dowdy for my liking, only because I prefer a bit more life, some music and maybe sky sports on. For that you have to travel into Pickering where the only pub I can suggest is The Royal Oak or the Wine bar in the high street. Everywhere else was a bit pricey, I expect because they rely on the tourist season to a degree. Im used to paying £60-70 for a meal for two adults and two kids, but here it was nearer £90. The cottage itself though was clean and tidy and served our needs very well. I like to be left alone when Im on holiday to just get on with what I want and I have had stays at places before where I felt the owners were over friendly and wanted to chat every five minutes. The owners were friendly, let us know where we were if we needed them, but left us to it. Others have mentioned the stairs, and for very young kids it just wouldnt work, but we had a 10 and 8 year old and they had no problems and were happy to have a bedroom to themselves. The TV is small and could be made bigger, but I watched the Matrix on it ok, and just goes to prove that tvs have got maybe to crazy big! All in all a good home from home. I also found Sykes Cottages were a pleasure to deal with to make the booking.’

‘The cottage is really well presented and the en suite in the 2nd bedroom was a bonus for our teenage daughter! Everything we wanted to see and do was within an hours drive so the location really worked for us. Would definately recommend this cottage to others. The living, dining, kitchen is compact but has everything you need. I imagine it would be very cosy in winter with the log burner going!’

‘Lovely, well equiped little cottage in a gorgeous setting. Perectly located for travelling to nearby attractions. We appreciated all the little touches the owner set out for our arrival, esp the choc biccies! Very clean and this is the first holiday we've booked where we didn't need to buy lots of products and bits and bobs for cleaning etc. Our girls loved the fact there was a trampoline and table tennis to use in the barn outside and that they had their own en-suite! If you're looking for the tradition "cottage" feel holiday, this is the cottage to go for. 5's all the way! We will def be back sometime soon.’

‘Definitely a great place to stay if you want a quiet home, not too far from York. The kids (10 and 12) enjoyed being on their own floor. You have everything you need and more in the small but adequately furnished family room. The washing machine is a great plus. The area is fantastic for walking and taking a tour on a steam train. Maybe less suitable for a family with teenagers.’

‘Due to the worst August weather in 100 years, we cancelled the camping and called Sykes for a last minute booking of anything – they came up trumps! We were so lucky that the owner presented Croft Head Cottage for rental the day before we were looking. In the words of my nine-year old, 'this cottage is awesome!' Once the word gets around this is one property that will never again be available for a last minute booking! The beautiful cottage, idyllic village location and the family made this a special holiday - thank you.’
