Wass is a village in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England within the North York Moors National Park. A short distance from the village lie the ruins of Byland Abbey. Despite the small size of the village (population c.100) there is a pub, the Wombwell Arms. It is nestled at the foot of Wass Bank and has beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.
Wass Grange lies to the east of Wass village. Monks stored their grain here when they occupied the nearby Byland Abbey before it was knocked down by Thomas Cromwell in the dissolution of the monasteries.
