    Although the apartment was clean and tidy, there were a few issues that we would like to make you aware of: - all of the windows are roof lights, therefore there no nice views to enjoy - it is situated next door to a cow shed, with 24/7 cow shed smells - the roof lights above the bed don't have black-out blinds, so when the sun gets up, so do you - the sofa is most uncomfortable, admittedly we are not as young as we used to be, but we took to sitting on the floor in an evening - so why didn't we go to the pub next door - it was closed until further notice - most disappointing All in all, not the best holiday we have ever had

    Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you felt your holiday was not up to expectations. We aim to provide an excellent service to our Customers and have received some very positive comments about the cottage. The cottage does meet the online description. The blackout blinds do serve their purpose but I will look at improving these in the coming months. Sofas and beds often provide a mixed reviews as they are very subjective depending on personal opinion. The pub next door was closed due to a fire so sadly this was unavoidable due to the building work that is going on I am happy to advise the pub is now open. We really appreciate your feedback and thank you for taking the time to complete this. - Sykes owner relations

The property

A charming stone and brick-built, detached barn conversion, set in the centre of the rural village of Carthorpe, just four miles from Bedale and seven miles from the ever-popular town of Masham.

This delightful cottage is ideal for those wishing to get away from it all, to enjoy a small taste of village life and a romantic break.

An unusual layout, with the main accommodation set out on the first floor, this lovely cottage has modern styling throughout, with the sitting room featuring two lovely settees, one for each guest, ideal after a long walk.

This charming cottage has a bright and cheery feel to it, with the liberal use of Velux windows in the sloping ceilings.

There is a small, well-equipped and modern kitchen, ideal for preparing lovely suppers, and the main bedroom has a super king-size bed which can be changed to two single beds on request, together with an en-suite shower room.

The ground floor entrance leads into a small hallway and stairs lead into the sitting room.

A double garage on the ground floor provides a good storage area for bikes and equipment and also houses the washing machine and a fridge/freezer.

Outside, there is a small patio area with furniture and barbecue, where you can relax and enjoy alfresco dining.

There is private off road parking and the village pub is just a one minute walk from the cottage.

Nearby there are many interesting attractions and places to see, including the market town of Masham, home of the Black Sheep Brewery, and the lovely old market town of Bedale.

Delightful Leyburn offers craft workshops, a chocolate maker, shops and pubs, and the High Parks Tea Room and Gallery, together with a children's adventure playground, mini golf course, gift shop and gallery tea room.

There are many walking routes and cycle trails in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, plus historic York is within driving distance, making this attractive cottage the perfect place for a romantic break.

About the location


Bedale 4 miles; Masham 7 miles.

The pretty village of Carthorpe lies east of Masham and south of Bedale at the entrance to Wensleydale and the glorious Yorkshire Dales National Park. A well laid out village with a lovely mixture of old and new dwellings built in the stylish red brick of the area, with at the centre being an award-winning pub, The Fox and Hounds. Close by is Aerial Extreme, which offers a high ropes course, and within reach is the historic, little market town of Masham, which is situated 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 10 mile walk along the Ure, arguably one of the best walks in the UK. Masham boasts a range of crafts, galleries, shops, restaurants and pubs, and is the home to the Black Sheep Brewery, which now brews 11 million pints of beer a year! The popular towns of Badale and Ripon are an easy drive away. Gardeners will enjoy the Thorp Perrow Arboretum and the gardens at Constable Burton, and don't miss the weird and wonderful "Forbidden Corner" near Middleham! Ideally placed for exploring all of Wensleydale, Swaledale and Wharfedale, and the city of York which is less than an hour away.
