Full Description

The holiday properties at ‘Mel House Cottages’ are set in the picturesque village of Newton-on-Rawcliffe in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.
The village is also close to the market town of Pickering.
Guests have exclusive access to their own private leisure facilities – an indoor heated swimming pool, spa, and sauna.
Children and dogs are welcome and there are paddocks plus stabling on a DIY livery basis for those wishing to bring their horses on holiday here.
Additionally, ‘Mallard’ and ‘Swift’ (both with wet rooms) are accessible to wheelchair users and ‘Owl’ is suitable for those with mobility impairment.
The holiday properties are located at the heart of our attractive and unspoilt village – overlooking the village green and its duck pond.
There’s a children’s play area nearby as well as the village pub which serves food.
Situated within the National Park, taking a holiday at ‘Mel House Cottages’ means that you have chosen a wonderful base for walking, cycling and horse-riding in this unspoilt and relatively unexplored part of the UK.
If your aim is to relax in the peace and quiet of the more remote areas of the North York Moors, just head due north from our village and in about 3 miles you’ll be passing through Cropton Forest – where you could wander all day and see just pheasants and deer (if you’re lucky!) – and soon be crossing a ford on a road which, whilst having a tarmac surface, doesn’t appear on some maps. It’s very special out there in England’s largest expanse of heather moorland!
When you’re ready to undertake a car journey, in less than 40 minutes you’ll to reach any one of the popular coastal towns of Whitby, Scarborough or Filey as well as the historic City of York.
