    “A very pleasant cottage”
    In Yorkshire at the beginning of July for the Grand Départ of the Tour de France and to explore the county and its many delightful market towns and cities.

The kitchen is well equipped with a good oven, hob, fridge, microwave, washer/dryer, etc. and in particular, it was a pleasure to open the cupboards and find complete matching sets of crockery, pans and cutlery and not the usual ...

About the location


Ripon 9 miles; Bedale 6 miles; Northallerton 14 miles.

Location: Masham Middleham 6 miles 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 recently been joined by a popular Saturday market. There are lots of walks around the area, including a recently reopened 10 mile walk along the Ure, arguably one of the best walks 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 to 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.
