    It was well equipped and spotlessly clean. The only thing there was not a key for the front door.

    Hi, its great to hear from you and thank you so much for the wonderful feedback. We really are so pleased you liked the location of the cottage, and we try really hard to achieve high standards of cleanliness throughout. It is something that's very important to us, and we're so happy it's appreciated. We've just doubled checked now with the current guests, and the front door key is attached to the same key fob as the back door key that you would have collected from the key safe on arrival. It's maybe easily missed though, but both are definitely available to guests to use we promise. Take good care and we hope that you'll consider staying with us again in the future.

    Only reservation was that a lot of the furniture was in front of windows which made them very difficult to open and we had very hot weather so a through breeze would have been nice. Otherwise a lovely property

    Hi, and thank you so much for your feedback and comments. This is our first holiday cottage and we really want things to be perfect for our guests. The feedback we receive definitely helps us improve on the service we can offer going forward. Following your comments, we have moved some of the furniture enabling guests to get to the windows and open them much more easily. We have also purchased an upright oscillating fan, and hopefully this will also help with the airflow in the hot weather. Thank you again for your kind words and great comments on the property and we really hope you had a fantastic holiday in North Yorkshire and at Rye Cottage? Property Owner

The property

Kirkbymoorside 3.5 miles.

Tucked away in the rural surroundings of Marton near Pickering and Kirkbymoorside is this semi-detached, family-friendly cottage, Rye Cottage.

With the North York Moors and Howardian Hills AONB within easy reach, this cottage has been thoughtfully appointed for a family of four or walkers and cyclists keen to explore this spectacular region of England.

Two off-road parking spaces greet you on arrival, as well as a side patio with outdoor seating, ideal for relaxing with a cold beverage on summer evenings.

Step inside to find a homely sitting room with two cushioned sofas to sink into and watch the Smart TV, all by the warmth of the electric fire.

Moving through the cottage, farmhouse meets contemporary in the fully equipped kitchen, sure to please the family chef!

Rustle up hearty meals using the electric oven and hob, to be served at the table for four, while the washer/dryer and dishwasher are an added convenience for holidays with little ones.

Leading straight onto the side patio, it'll be an easy task to set up the outdoor table with tasty treats and dine alfresco.

Completing the ground floor is a sleek shower room with natural light pouring in from the Skylight, marble-effect tiling, and a large walk-in shower to freshen up, while the heated rail keeps your towel warm.

Suitable for those with limited mobility, Rye Cottage has a ground-floor double room with lovely touches such as feature wallpaper, ample storage, and crisp linen.

The second bedroom is a twin on the first floor, equally as well-appointed with bedside lamps for night owl readers.

There's plenty to do and see around Marton, with the market town of Kirkbymoorside a short drive away for convenience stores to stock up on essentials, traditional pubs, and Kirkbymoorside Golf Club.

Jump in the car and head south to Flamingo Land Resort in Kirby Misperton, sure to please the younger guests, or if that's not for you, spend the day in Pickering.

This historic market town sits on the doorstep to the North York Moors with Beck Isle Museum, the 13th-century Pickering Castle, and Pickering Millennium Wood being just some of the attractions!

Helmsley is another must visit where Helmsley Arts Centre, the 900 year-old Helmsley Castle with a fascinating sculpture garden, and The Vinehouse Cafe at Helmsley walled Garden offer something for all tastes.

Beadlam Grange Farmshop and Tea Room is on your way and an excellent stop off for local produce.

Venture further into the North York Moors for an abundance of historic attractions and unspoilt countryside to ramble through; the National Trust's Nunnington Hall, Duncombe Park, and the 11th-century ruins of Rievaulx Abbey are all within reach of your holiday home!

Further afield, you'll find Malton and the historic city of York with plenty of attractions to choose from.

Make memories with your loved ones at Rye Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
