  • "This is a lovely modern cottage, well equipped with all necessities and situated in a true market town, between York and Scarborough."

    Malton is well connected by both rail and road to both cities and only a short distance from Castle Howard, a beautiful lavender farm and Nunnington Hall. The long communal grass area at the front provides excellent play space for young children and the private rear garden was perfect on sunny evenings. We had a lovely holiday.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Cake House."

    House was lovely and clean with everything you need. Beds were comfy. House was warm. Neighbours lovely. My boys enjoyed playing football at front of the house and made friends with local kids. Meg the owner was lovely and contactable if we needed anything. We found a brilliant park nearby, in Rainbow Lane. There is a chip shop nearby, I would avoid, it isn’t the greatest. The town of Malton is beautiful and nice to dander about in. Ice-cream from Groovy Moo is an absolute must! Steak Pie from Food 2 Remember was delicious and fresh baked bread from Bluebird Bakery was Devine. We had Sunday lunch in Old Lodge in Malton, it was nice. A good Chinese was Gold Lion. Plenty to do and see around the area. We will definitely be back.

    A king or queen sized bed in master bedroom would be ideal and firmer mattress. A new couch would also enhance the property. Overall the cake house has everything you need , very clean, and in an ideal location.We have stayed there on a few occasions and would not hesitate to return again

  • "We stayed at the Cake House for 1 week."

    Meg the owner was in contact prior to our arrival, and again during our stay with clear instructions for key collection, and updates with all the extra covid 19 precautions taken etc., which made us feel safe and relaxed staying in the property. The house was immaculately clean in every area.  We found it spacious, comfortable and very well equipped, especially the kitchen. The provision of milk and cake on our arrival was a nice touch.  The location is great for travelling around north Yorkshire and the east coast.  We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend to anyone considering a visit.

    ..It was within easy reach of the town and railway which we used on our day out to York and short drive to Pickering where we picked up the steam train to Whitby. We would highly recommend this house to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday....!!!

  • "My family and I have just returned from a four night stay at the cake house."

    The house is so comfortable and spotlessly clean. The house contains everything you could possibly need during your stay plus a welcome tea and cake tray which was a lovely touch when you arrive. The key collection process runs perfectly and the owner of the house is very helpful if you need anything nothing is to much trouble. The cake house is ideally situated for exploring the countryside and beaches in the surrounding area. Malton has a good variety of supermarkets and local shops within walking distance of the house. We will definitely return when we re visit the area.

    ... Made easy with a washing machine & dishwasher. The neighbours are lovely and helpful too. We stayed for a lengthy stay and quite frankly could have stayed much longer. The host Meg has been fantastic and stayed in touch throughout our stay and offered extra bed sheets and fresh towels. The bracken cake & Yorkshire tea on arrival was a lovey touch and we will highly recommend to everyone. Thank you.

  • "The directions to the property need amending as follows:- after the phrase "After approx 0."

    35 mile" change to "the road bends right to a roundabout. Go straight across (2nd exit) into the Broughton Manor Estate. Take the second left into Damson Avenue." The Cake House is no 12 on the RIGHT not left! The manager, Carolyn, was very helpful when we had a problem with the shower, and organised a plumber to sort it out the same day. The house is very comfortable apart from all door hinges needing oiling. The shower room would benefit from a towel rail and a rack in the cubicle for gel/shampoo.

  • "The Cottage was extremely well presented, with excellent facilities."

    Comfortable, warm and with a lovely kitchen with an excellent cooker. Meg was extremely helpful and was insistent that we contact her direct with any problems, which was very re-assuring. I only have 1 small idea that would be very useful and that is a holder of some sort in the en-suite shower for soap and shampoo rather than have to put these items on the shower cubicle floor. Other than that 5*.

    The house was immaculate and had everything for a comfortable stay (1 week). Located in a new housing estate within walking distance to center of Malton with loads of small independent shops, bars inc local brewery and restaurants. Train station approx 15-20 min walk . York and coast can be reached within 25 minutes on the frequent train service. Moors, Dalby Forest , etc a short drive. If traveling back to the area we would have no hesitation to book the Cake House again.

    A real home from home, well equipped and decorated to high standard. Only stayed one night as had night out planned at Castle Howard, less than 15 mins away by taxi but wish could have stayed longer. House was perfect for our needs, spent afternoon relaxing in garden, enjoyed a great night out and then back to house for relaxing evening. 10 out of 10.

  • "I have booked several holidays with Sykes Cottages and they have never failed to meet expectations."

    The booking process, on-line or by telephone, has always been very straightforward and any personnel I have dealt with have been helpful and friendly. The Cake House is a lovely house; modern, yet very comfortable and homely. It has all the facilities that are needed with a much welcomed Welcome Pack ready for our arrival!! It is in a very quiet area just on the edge of Malton but with straightforward access into the town centre. The owner was very friendly and helpful when we spoke and the key pick up and drop off arrangements were very smooth. The Cake House was perfect for a week for our family and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. I would definitely recommend it and, if we return to Malton in the future (which I very much hope we will do!) we would hope to be able to stay at The Cake House.

There was a wide range of information about local services and tourist attractions available and the inclusion of wifi enabled us to research and make plans for the next day each evening. Although the property was on a brand new development it was a very quiet and peaceful location and has great views of the surrounding countryside from the master bedroom.

The market town of Malton has been the historic centre of Ryedale since Roman times, and has many interesting buildings including the old Corn Exchange and Assembly Rooms. A weekly general market is still held in the town, as well as livestock and farmers’ markets. The Yorkshire Moors are to the north, and the Yorkshire Wolds are to the south, making it excellent countryside for walkers and cyclists. The impressive coastline is just 24 miles away, whilst the historic city of York is an 18 mile journey. A perfect base for touring the attractions of North Yorkshire.
