Able to sleep four people in one double and one twin room, the property is mainly composed of an open-plan living area with cosy wood-burning stove.

This former coaching inn is now a quaint, compact Grade II listed building close to the centre of the pretty village of Wrelton. With flagged floors, beamed ceilings and an original cast iron range, this property is full of period character. Outside, the cottage comes with a sunny, south-facing patio which is an ideal place to relax on a warm summer’s night. Whether you’re planning on a summer vacation packed with al fresco dining, or a winter break by the fireside, this lovely little cottage will be able to accommodate your needs and is ideal for either a couple or a small family.


Situated in a very nice village, the cottage had everything that I needed and was very comfortable, with a lovely patio area to sit and relax in.

Enjoyed our stay in this well presented and located property
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.

Friendly owners and nice accommodation in a lovely village with a very good pub and meals.
Mr Curl

The location is excellent for touring the Moors and Wolds with easy access to the coast. Great for walking. The owners are readily available if needed, but leave you alone if not. The cottage is all you need for a holiday, with the log fire a wonderful bonus.
Mr Cotterill

The cottage was a perfect location for our break in Yorkshire. It was very close to everything that we wanted to do.
