“We booked & stayed at this cottage ...”We booked & stayed at this cottage last year, and were happy to re-book for this year. The cottage is clean, warm, dry & comfortable (and believe me that hasn't always been the case with other companies!) Equipment-wise, it had everything we needed for the holiday, except a television with more than one channel! I'm not bothered about Sky and such-like, but more than BBC1 would have been nice?

About the location
Ripon 9 miles; Bedale 6 miles; Northallerton 14 miles.
The historic little market town of Masham is situated in the lower reaches of pretty Wensleydale alongside the River Ure. Set in gently rolling farmland, the town boasts a huge market square, where a Wednesday market has been joined by a popular Saturday market. There are lots of walks around the area, including a 10-mile walk along the Ure, arguably one of the best in the UK. The town boasts a good range of crafts, galleries, shops, restaurants and pubs and has become best known perhaps as the home of two breweries Theakstons of Old Peculiar fame and the Black Sheep Brewery, which now brews 11 million pints of beer a year! The popular towns of Ripon, Thirsk, Northallerton, Richmond and Harrogate are an easy drive away. With so much to see and do in the area, this is a great place for a holiday in all seasons.
