Three of our properties are suitable for Guests with various degrees of mobility impairment – please see the references to this ‘accessibility’ under each relevant property below.

Tastefully pine furnished two storey holiday cottage, the ground floor offers an open plan and spacious sitting room with a wood burning stove set in a stone fireplace.

Downstairs is a twin bedroom with fitted furniture and adjacent spacious, fully tiled bathroom with bath, shower, toilet, basin with shaver socket alongside, heated towel rail and humidity detecting extractor fan. Because the existing ground floor area of the cottage is open plan, this extension has been completed in such a way as to make the cottage suitable for an accompanied guest who is a full time wheelchair user. Both the downstairs bathroom and twin bedroom have 1.5 metre turning areas for a wheelchair, for example, the bathroom itself has appropriate grab rails, thermostatically controlled mixer taps, etc.

On the first floor, which has partial headroom due to low beams in the eaves, are two cosy bedrooms - one double (overlooking the village green) and one twin - a bathroom with handheld mixer-tap shower, toilet, basin with light/shaver socket above and humidity detecting extractor fan.

Visiting Newton-on-Rawcliffe & Exploring North Yorkshire

The four self catering holiday properties comprising Mel House Cottages are at the heart of our attractive North York Moors National Park village - so not worryingly 'remote' during the Winter Season! - roughly 30 miles north east of the city of York. We're 'away from it all' and yet on the doorstep of one of the UK's most attractive cities. Add to this the fact that we are pretty centrally located within the UK - so many of our guests choose to come here when 'gathering' friends and family together from various locations in England, Scotland and Wales - we think we offer an ideal holiday venue. The two beaches at Scarborough and the 4 mile beach at Filey are all about 40 minutes away by car – as is, in total contrast, the historic city of York just 30 miles away.

Of course, this special part of North Yorkshire is ‘home’ to so many castles, abbeys, historic houses, museums, attractions, etc. that – other than during off season months – a fortnight here wouldn’t be long enough to enable you to do all you’d like to!
