Croft Head Cottage Romantic Cottage description

Holiday home
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.

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.

The North York Moors National Park covers 554 square miles, with landscape ranging from heather-clad moorland and deep secluded dales, to the cliffs and coves of the magnificent coastline making it a haven for walkers.

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.

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.

Lovely little Victorian farm worker cottage and very well finished by the current friendly owners. Turned out to be a very good, central location for visiting local towns and walking in the North Yorks Moors. Everything was only 10s of minutes away!

A beautiful little cottage, I would move in there if possible. The tea and biscuits on arrival were great.

The welcome pack of food was a lovely touch and there was a very good provision of basic toiletries and cleaning equipment. The cottage was really clean and full of character. We very much enjoyed all aspects of our holiday.

The property is really lovely. So much individual space in a small cottage. The washing machine is a great plus!

We loved this cottage. Extremely clean and so beautifully decorated that I (being an architect and interior designer myself) was wondering if the landlords were interior designers. We loved Yorkshire - spectacular nature and old architecture!
Mrs Radford

A beautiful cottage in a very pretty village. A lovely place to relax - we were made very welcome by the owners - who were close at hand if we needed them. Thank you.
Mr Sharp
August 2011
The quality and standards achieved by the owners were very good. We found the location of Croft Head Cottage excellent, as it was central to all the places we wanted to visit. The pub in the village served quality food at very reasonable prices and it added to the enjoyment of our break. The owner greeted us on arrival and gave us the keys and any relevant information and left us to it, which is exactly as we like it, but also left contact numbers if there was any problems so top marks to him

It was a beautiful cottage, immaculately presented. It was just right for our little family. The owners were lovely too. Great for visiting the area - very central with lots around to visit and explore.

The cottage was lovely and the location was excellent for exploring the Coast, the Moors and the city of York. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The area was extremely attractive and there was a huge amount of things to do and see - we were never stuck for something to do.

December 2012
Yorkshire tea on arrival and yummy biscuits were great. Brilliant wood burner.
November 2012
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!
October 2011
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.
October 2011
lovely cottage situated in a quiet hamlet outside Pickering made it central to our explorations standards at the cottage were very good and the owners freindly and approachable would certainaly reccomend this property to friends and family

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.
June 2010
The owners were extremely welcoming and we appreciated the tea and biscuit tray on arrival. The cottage was exactly as we expected it to be and looked just like it did in the brochure.the location was perfect for exploring the coast, the Moors and the city of York. the village was pretty and had a good local pub and there were good restaurants near by. The whole holiday was fantastic and the cottage didn't disappoint. We had a great time.
December 2009
Wow; we received a warm welcome not just when we arrived but everytime we met our hosts during our stay. They offered advice on places to visit, where to eat and even how to get there. The cottage is beautifully decorated and located; we dont usually visit the same area twice, but if we where ever in the location there is only one place to stay - HERE!
December 2009
We really enjoyed our stay in Werlton North Yorkshire and would recommend the cottage and Sykes .However i think the lounge kittchen area could be improved and as a overall opinion as we have stayed in two of your cottages i think an investment in better TV entertainment ie freeveiw with at least a 28" screen
