    • “Absolutely perfect for our 5-night stay. We, that is me, wife, son and dog, wanted a two bedroom hideaway close to the centre of Masham, and convenient for shooting off for days-out. Oh, and pet friendly, of course. Well, Gromit Cottage met all these criteria and more. The owner of the cottage lives in the adjoining property (Wallace Cottage!), so he is on hand should you need anything. OK, we found it a bit hard to find at first, despite comprehensive directions...maybe the best bet is to park up in the Market Square (honesty box parking), and find the place on foot, first. It is literally two minutes' walk from the Square, but you do have to navigate some narrow ginnels! Parking at the property is outside, but there is more than adequate room for two vehicles, and it is 'Private Parking'. All in all, it does exactly what it says on the tin, and more....and please read my review of the nearby 'Bruce Arms' for what we believed to be the best pub/eaterie.”

    • “This is the 5th rental we have used in Masham. It rates very highly when compared to the others. We particularly like the location which is ideal for us as all pubs, shops, breweries are easily accessed from the doorstep. The cottage is very comfortable and has all you need for a great stay. We will definitely return next year.”

    Mrs Tomlinson, Whitby, September 2015

    • “The Cottage was very comfortable and well equipped, making it a pleasure to be in. It had extremely comfortable beds and lovely clean, fresh sheets and towels. There was lots of hot water and a great bathroom. An excellent cottage and great location for exploring close to home as well as further afield.”

    Dr Richardson, Fraserburgh, July 2015

    • “Liked everything. The cottage was ideally located. The pubs all had great food and ales and the Co-op nearby was very handy. There were lots of lovely local walks and lots to do without having to travel far, when you do travel it's all in beautiful countryside. A brilliant holiday.”

    Miss Clarke, Alfreton, May 2015

    • “Clean, excellent beds, the lounge was fantastic and we loved getting the log burner going. Well done Sykes Cottages for getting Gromit Cottage on your books. We will return!!”

    Miss Gee, Swindon, March 2015

    • “The cottage was excellent, well equipped and very comfortable. It was in a quiet location two minutes' walk from the market place. Masham is a lovely village, there are plenty of walks and other things to do. This was our first holiday with our dog and it ticked all of our boxes - all of the pubs welcome dogs which is lovely.”

    Mr Dockerty, Pudsey, March 2015

    • “Lovely comfortable cottage, everything we could need for a cosy stay in Masham and in a very central location. Will definitely visit again and would not hesitate to recommend.”

    Mrs Fitzgeorge, Grimsby, January 2015

    • “The cottage or should I say house was much more than I expected - it is much bigger than the photographs show. The standards cannot be faulted, the standard of the TV and Wifi were particularly appreciated at this time of year. The location of the Theakston bar just down the road was also welcome.”

    Mr McLennan, Gateshead, December 2014

    • “We had good weather and the site of the cottage was convenient for all the places of interest.”

    Mr Asquith, Filey, November 2014

    • “It was a lovely relaxing holiday in a lovely cottage, very peaceful and homely. We enjoyed the area, it was so beautiful, everywhere was so clean. We would return to the cottage again when visiting the area. Came home really relaxed after such a good stay in the cottage.”

About the location


Ripon 9 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 Peculier fame and the Black Sheep Brewery, which now brews 11 million pints of beer a year! The popular towns of Ripon 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.
