    From the kerbside it looks very pretty with a well stocked garden and small patio. The lounge is pleasant and the kitchen is well stocked. Some instructions for the microwave would have been useful as we could work out how to use it, being unlike any other that we’d come across. Except for the oven and freezer, everywhere was spotlessly clean apart from a few stains on the living room carpet and main bedroom. Upstairs was lovely - a great bathroom and nicely decorated bedrooms. Bedding and towels appeared to be brand new. The main problem we had was with the mattress on the king sized bed. It was very uncomfortable due to the springs which could be felt on the surface and ‘pinged’ every time one of us moved! My husband’s back suffered each morning as a result. The only other complaint was that the description implied that the courtyard to the rear of the property would be a pleasant place to sit. However it was merely a dull empty yard with a shed and wheelie bins. There also appeared to be a numbered parking space to the rear which was not mentioned. Having said that, we had no problems parking on the road. The cottage is very well located , about a 5 min walk from Boroughbridge’s pretty centre. There are also three pubs close by. We enjoyed our break and the area but would not choose that particular house again.

    Thank you for your feedback, as a new property we welcome any comments you have. We will take on board your feedback and look into changing the mattress. The back courtyard is shared, The front area is private and the best place for sitting outside. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the location. - Sykes owner relations

The property

Resting in the small town of Boroughbridge is Roecliffe, a charming mid-terrace cottage offering four guests a lovely spot to call home when exploring North Yorkshire.

Set over three floors and benefiting from a fronat private outdoor area and a shared courtyard at the rear, Roecliffe makes an excellent touring base for visiting York, Ripon and Harrogate.

Be welcomed into the entrance hallway before entering into the attractive sitting room, where a gas fire adds extra warmth in the winter months, and two pink sofas provide somewhere to relax while you enjoy watching TV after a big day.

Make your way into the kitchen/diner when you're feeling peckish to rustle up a feast in the fitted kitchen, with further appliances in the adjoining utility area, including a washer/dryer.

Head upstairs to find the first bedroom, boasting a king-size bed with plenty of storage for your things, with a bathroom on this floor too, hosting a bath with an overhead shower.

Climb another set of stairs to the attic room beneath sloping ceilings, where a double bed sits below Velux windows.

Sip your morning coffee in the shared courtyard to start your day before you set off on your first adventures.

The cathedral city of York rests less than 20 miles away and is bursting with things to see and do; take a tour of the beautiful York Minster before a stroll around the York City Walls and a trip to Clifford's Tower and the York Castle Museum, or travel further back in time at JORVIK Viking Centre where a Viking village has been replicated including the sights, sounds and smells!

Yorkshire Museum is home to five galleries showcasing archaeological treasures, with beautiful museum gardens home to Roman ruins, whilst The York Dungeon, Shambles, and York's Chocolate Story are all well worth visiting too.

Head to the spa town of Harrogate for a delightful afternoon tea at the famous Bettys Café Tea Rooms, before exploring the scenic Valley Gardens and The Stray, Mercer Art Gallery and Royal Pump Room Museum.

Newby Hall & Gardens is a great day out for families with thanks to the kids' adventure playground here, part of the 25-acre grounds of this Georgian house with a café and shop too.

Walkers can delight in hiking through the Howardian Hills AONB and the Nidderdale AONB, with lots of lakes and rivers nearby for some excellent fishing, and of course lots of cycling opportunities along the scenic country lanes.

Make memories to last with your loved ones at Roecliffe.
