  • "High quality furnishing and a modern internal decoration that looked recently completed."

    A very pleasant, comfy lounge with easy access through french doors to garden and patio area. Some wall wood sleepers going rotten and would require maintenance in the future. Garden well kept and flat to walk on and sit with lovely views across the fields. For guests with mobility problems the stairs which are quite steep could be a problem. Perhaps this point should be mentioned in the Ryeby Garth details. Our holiday experience at Ryeby Garth was excellent and we would return in the future.

  • "Beautiful cottage in an even more beautiful place."

    My partner and I both have busy lifestyles and work gets pretty stressful, Ryeby Garth was the perfect place to unwind and relax. It truly was bliss. The gorgeous scenery and rural surroundings were lovely, the horses on the paddock at the back of the cottage were a lovely surprise! We even gave them nicknames whilst we were there! (Imogen and Jaxon) The cottage had everything you could need, the open fire and log burner give it that cosy cottage feel and we loved snuggling up on the comfy sofa watching movies with the fire roaring. The cottage is beautifully decorated and really gives a homely feel. Bed was comfy and it was nice to have space to hang up/put away our clothes. We took day trips to The surrounding seaside towns and took walks throughout the day through the lovely countryside. The welcome basket was a kind gesture and just added to the warm homely feel when we arrived. Off road parking in the garage was great and gave peace of mind. Really lovely stay and a lot of thought went in to the decor and little touches of the cottage, it was just like a home away from home. Lovely big kitchen with lots of space, I spend a lot of time baking and cooking and this kitchen was the perfect place to do so. Steve and Alison were really helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend staying at this little gem.
