  • "Cottage in a good position with lots to do in the surrounding areas."

    Had to clean the fridge and oven before using. Tray in oven was filthy also. Very noisy from above. Up until around 2.30am and again from around 7. Was freezing on arrival. Took a couple of days to heat through. However!! Very comfy. Living room and bedroom very nice. Good bathroom but dripping shower and water went hot and cold whilst using. Washer and dryer were a help.

  • "Lovely apartment, clean & tidy, everything you need."

    Perfectly situated for visiting the local area. Rippon & Thirsk, within easy reach. Masham is a lovely village, locals very helpful, small market twice a week. The pub and brewery both do amazing food. Plenty of walks nearby to keep my dog happy too.

  • "Not a very comfortable place to stay."

    Bed was not comfortable and pillows need to be replaced, very small shower with damaged door and the cooker was very old by the looks of it. There is a kitchen bin inside but no dustbin or recycling boxes outside to put rubbish in when full, apparently down a hill through a gate behind the apartment building there was somewhere to put rubbish……. couldn’t find it and found it unacceptable for us to do both being in or 70s. Been visiting Masham for 40 years and this was the worst place we’ve stayed at. Booked for 2 weeks but left middle of second week due to becoming ill and desperate to get home to my own bed to rest and recover.

    But this time the TV did not work and there was no wifi. I called the owner 3 times but he never got back to me and one of the numbers he provides does not work. We won't be staying there again.

  • "Lovely little property tucked away but very close to village centre, ideal for two people which is why we book it ."

    Has everything you need although there were a couple of frying pans which could do with binning as didn’t look clean enough to use . We had a couple of nights where noise from the upstairs flat was annoying ,don’t know wether it was someone working locally in hospitality as they came in after closing time and were banging about a lot and had tv on till 2.30 in morning then their alarm was going off at 5.45 next morning . Might be nice to have a couple of fold up chairs to sit outside when the weather is lovely as was the case last week ,but overall it’s in an ideal spot ,is clean and tidy and we will book again

  • "Ideal location to walk around Masham with its lovely shops, pubs and breweries."

    Cottage is snug but a good size for 2 people and bathroom is nice, clean and shower works fine. We didnt use the kitchen really as only there a couple of days so ate out. Comfort wise, the sofa is ok but small to relax on. The bed is not very comfortable either, maybe time for a new mattress? Only other problem is there are no facilities to clean your dog after a long walk out. Ours is long haired and it was very hard to clean his hair after a rainy and muddy walk and as living room and kitchen are open plan, nowhere to keep him until he dried.

  • "The property is excellently positioned for Washam and the White Bear pub/hotel."

    Other pubs are available just a short distance. As a dog lover, I appreciated the local walks from one to three hours. My comments on the property itself are as follows: *it would be a good idea to let users know that they can use the Brewery car park before they get to the flat, *the ground outside the front door is littered with cigarette buts. There was no broom to deal with this, *the central heating is very efficient and the flat is warm and cosy, *the kitchen area was well equipped, but the cutlery and crockery were stained and generally in need of a good clean, which we did, *the carpets were deeply covered in dog hair, which was collecting in matted lumps. We gave the place a thoroughly good vacuum throughout, *previous users had complained about the mattress, we don't believe that anything has been done about it. I was OK, but my husband found it uncomfortable, *previous users had complained about the shower - the drain is continually blocked so that it is necessary to use the plunger (provided) but you still have to keep turning the shower off to let the water flow away. The tray is very shallow and there is a danger of it flooding the bathroom if you don't keep an eye on it, *it would be useful to have instructions on how to use the TV, *the instruction for dealing with the rubbish was inaccurate, we could not find any bins and left it in the flat. Obviously, previous users had not left the property as they would like to find it - but maybe that's how they live at home. We didn't expect to have to clean it when we unpacked our stuff. The changeover cleaning needs more attention to detail. We left it as we would have liked to have found it. It's such a shame that I have to make these complaints. It's an excellent flat for two people and a dog and we would go back.

    I did feel that one or 2 things could be improved - towels are too small so either tell quests to bring a towel or increase the size and the wall by the cooker had something splattered up the wall which you notice upon entering the property.

  • "The description of the flat is somewhat misleading."

    .. It is not a "ground floor" flat, it is more like a basement flat. Some of the steps leading down to the flat are coming loose and some are broken. The flat does not have a garden (listed as one of the amenities on your website). The shower in the flat needs some attention. The sealant around the tray needs replacing and the shower rail also needs fixing. The flat does have good equipment in the kitchen and plenty of entertainment. It is an adequate base for a week's holiday.

    Easy to park nearby. To be honest there is nothing really wrong with the apartment except that it is a bit old fashioned with a feel of the 1980’s. That in itself is not an issue - it’s just that the decor and styling don’t match up to the cost of the rental. You’d expect a higher spec for the price.

  • "When we arrived at the cottage another couple were already in it ."

    The hotel where we supposed to pick the keys up from had given them out to another couple who had booked it for the weekend after . When i went to pick the keys up from the hotel the staff told me they had already given them out . As we arrived at 4pm and the other couple had got there at 3pm they were already unpacked and sat in the cottage. We then had to knock on the door and the other couple realised it was their mistake . We then had to wait an hour and a half to get in the cottage we had rented from 3pm while they packed back up again . The owner was informed by the other couple that it was their mistake , but never called or offered any extra cleaning. Given the current climate with covid 19 we then had to clean the cottage ourselves on arrival which took another hour . This was not the relaxing break we imagined .

  • "1. First impressions weren't good."

    Your guide refers to 'off road parking' but doesn't say where this is (other guests have mentioned this previously). We couldn't find it so parked in the pub car park. There was a broken step leading down to the property, the window and front door were both filthy. The kitchen flooring is very badly laid and some of the planks move, there are also gaps in the flooring. 2. During the stay. Your guide says the property has been 'renovated to a good standard'. I disagree, it looks very tired and could do with a decent makeover. All the furnishings and fittings look tired and some look quite shabby (settee and carpets e.g.); the bed is also very uncomfortable (again mentioned by previous guests). Your guide also refers to a 'front seating area'. We couldn't find this either - unless you mean the communal bench opposite the pub car park. The kitchen area wasn't particularly clean (disappointing given the current situation with COVID-19) and the bin outside hadn't been emptied so we had nowhere to put our rubbish (hence not emptying the kitchen bin when we left). the property would benefit from having WiFi installed, especially as the mobile signal is very poor in the apartment. It must be said the shower was very good. 3. The overall location is great, North Yorkshire is beautiful and has a great deal to offer and there were some great dog walks nearby too. Masham itself is a delight with some great pubs and fantastic shops selling local produce. The White Bear Inn (right next door) is also highly recommended and the local Co-op is really handy and well stocked.

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 Peculiar fame and the Black Sheep Brewery, which now brews 11 million pints of beer a year!
