This property is a Grade II listed building, brimming with character. Much of its original charm has been retained through exposed beams and wall-timbers, wooden floors and a galleried bedroom. There is a double bedroom beautifully decorated to create a peaceful haven at the end of the day and the airy, open plan living area has a very 'French Country' feel. A walled front garden offers ample opportunity for al fresco dining in the summer, while full central heating and a flame-effect electric fire keep the cold at bay in the winter months.
The village of Wrelton boasts a fascinating past. After the last Ice Age, when this entire area was submerged by floodwater, and the village was a simple settlement clinging to the edge of the lake of Pickering. Much later, during the Roman Occupation, Wrelton occupied a key position on the route between Malton and Wade's Causeway on Stape Moor, and during the Georgian era, coaches would have stopped here on their way to Scarborough and Whitby. Today, it is a delightful mish-mash of stone cottages, modern houses and dry-stone walls. Although there are no shops in Wrelton, the village is served by the Buck Inn, which is famous for its good food and a fine selection of real ales. Nearby attractions include the market town of Malton, Pickering Castle, Castle Howard and the historic City of York, which has attractions for visitors of all ages.
