Ryedale lies between York and the Heritage Coastline of North Yorkshire. The North York Moors form the northern border of the District and the Yorkshire Wolds the southern limit. Ryedale is a diverse and beautiful area of spectacular scenery, bustling market towns, dale and hill farms and picturesque villages.

Ryedale takes its name from the River Rye which, together with the River Derwent, forms much of the geographical character of the District. Both rivers rise in the North York Moors and join near Malton and Norton, eventually draining into the Humber.

The District covers an area of 575 square miles (150,659 hectares) and is one of the seven Districts that make up North Yorkshire.
