    • “wonderful experience in a pretty town”

    • “the cottage is located in the centre of a picturesque town and only a few minutes walk to all the shops which have anything that you need. The cottage is very clean and is fully equipped with everything that you require, . I recommend having a meal at the Kings Head pub, we enjoyed a nice meal and friendly atmosphere. There is a weekly market and it is worth a visit as there are home made products and artists who sell pictures and cards. We used it as a base to travel around north yorkshire to do family history. I recommend also visiting surrounding towns such as Ripon. Hawes, Richmond and if you are a fan of the last of the summer wine go to Holmfirth. I would definitely stay there again.”

    • “An interesting break”

    • “We were 2 adults staying for some peace and quiet but within easy reach of amenities. That is exactly what we got. My friend smokes and was greeted by the old chap almost every time that people have mentioned negatively in reviews. Either he or his wife were in constant attendance. We however went along with it. The old chap was interested in where we were going and where we had been. You could set your clock by him and his tour of the village walking with his dog. The cottage is just off the village centre, so 3 pubs and 2 breweries were within crawling distance but away from any noise. The deli on the corner had some fab cheese, a bakery around the opposite direction for fresh bread. The place reminded me of a mini Oxford with huddled up terraces opening out onto the street. The centre has a parking honesty box of 50p. Steeped in history, cyclists and real ale drinkers following a country walk. Yes, the old chap is a talking point, but we are nurses and are used to long chats with older people, so it didn't bother us”

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.
