  • Mr Gannon

    “The cottage is equipped to a very high standard in every respect and is tastefully decorated.”

    A pleasant surprise was the welcome pack that included milk, biscuits and wine plus six newly laid eggs from the owner's hens. WIFI is good and reliable. I strongly recommend Fen Cottage.

The property

A charming end of terrace cottage, set in a most enviable location on the edge of the village green in the pretty village of Fearby, just two miles from Masham.

Boasting immense character and charm throughout, this is one of our premier Yorkshire Dales cottages and is perfect for a romantic break, or a small family wanting to spend quality time together in this popular, unspoilt area.

From the moment you enter the cottage there is real quality and warmth to the accommodation, creating the feeling that the owners have really gone out of their way to provide a first-class holiday home.

The main living space is a delight, with a warm and cosy woodburning stove set into a beautiful fire surround, quality furnishings and those little extra touches that create a lovely home-from-home atmosphere.

The pretty kitchen is well equipped, and leads out into a lovely cottage garden overlooking the attached meadow.

Upstairs, two delightful bedrooms with original character in the shape of old beams and original open fireplace are further complemented by a modern bathroom with a wonderful walk-in shower.

Nearby, the amenities of Masham include its wonderful twice-weekly market, the Theakston and Black Sheep Visitor Centres, Vennell’s award-winning restaurant, plus a great range of traditional old pubs with lots of warmth and good old fashioned Yorkshire welcome.

The market towns of Richmond, Leyburn, Skipton and Hawes are all within a short drive, as are the beautiful Fountains and Jervaulx Abbeys.

Spend a day shopping in nearby Ripon or bustling Harrogate, whilst a trip to York is surely not to be missed, with its famous York Minster and ‘Shambles’.

With lovely views of the surrounding countryside, good walks from the doorstep and a short walk to an excellent local pub, what more could you need for a relaxing break in the Yorkshire Dales?

About the location


Masham 2 miles; Ripon 7 miles; Leyburn 12 miles; Thirsk 17 miles.

This small, picturesque Dales village is situated just two miles from Masham in the midst of some of Yorkshire's most beautiful scenery. It comprises a scattering of dwellings and farmsteads, set round a spacious village green, offering an excellent local pub serving fine ales and excellent cuisine. Fearby is ideally situated for exploring all of Yorkshire's splendid countryside, with the Yorkshire Dales to the west and the North York Moors and Yorkshire Coast to the east. In and around the village are a good selection of walks along footpaths and bridleways. Nearby, the historic little market town of Masham is situated in the lower reaches of pretty Wensleydale, alongside the River Ure. Set in pretty, 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 re-opened ten 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 as the home of two breweries; Theakstons of Old Peculiar fame, and more recently 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.
