How to Find Us
It's easy. Typically, from south of here you'd take the A64 off the A1M, bypass the southern outskirts of the City of York, and the take the A169 from Malton to Pickering. If travelling here from the north, you'd probably travel via the A1M and Thirsk - taking the A170 to Pickering via Sutton Bank. You'll see that we've set out specific details below covering your last 5 miles of travel from Pickering, key collection, etc.

Malton Railway Station (with a regular service running between Scarborough and York Stations) is 25 minutes (14 miles) from Mel House Cottages. Leeds-Bradford Airport is 90 minutes (65 miles) away.

By Car from Pickering…
Please note that Sat Nav devices will no doubt handle your journey as far as Pickering perfectly satisfactorily - but see note below. We suggest that you should not necessarily rely upon them from that point onwards! Instead, just follow the following 'directions' which also include key collection details. Have a safe and trouble-free journey!

Directions from MALTON to Mel House Cottages, Newton-on-Rawcliffe, YO18 8QA
The route from Malton (about 20 miles north east of the City of York) to Pickering is straightforward. After taking the bypass around Malton, exit the A64 at the A169 for Pickering.

Directions from the centre of Pickering to Newton-on-Rawcliffe are as follows:-

Approximately ½ mile after entering the 30mph speed limit, turn left at the roundabout onto the A170 whick links Thirsk to Scarborough.
After approximately 600 yards, turn right at the traffic lights. [You will follow the road you have turned into for roughly 4½ miles to reach Newton-on-Rawcliffe.]
After 200 yards, a road enters from the left and another from the right. Keep straight ahead!
Pass the North York Moors Steam Railway Station on left, terraced housing on right.
Leave restricted 30mph speed limit and proceed to New Bridge Level Crossing (about ½ mile) under a canopy of trees, stream on left.
Road rises approx. 600 feet and then levels out, having a series of straight stretches with occasional bends.
Oon enetering Newton-on-Rawcliffe (30mph speed restriction) you will find us approx. 600 yards on right - facing the Village Green and immediately before the Pub.
You will see the ‘Let's Holiday - Mel House Cottages' sign on the end of 'Mallard' Cottage. Before this Cottage is our concrete drive and before that our 3-storey house.
