    A brilliant location, great value for money and a cosy get away for 3 nights! We stayed here with 2 family members for the first night then it was just myself, my partner and our dog. We really loved using this as our base, with lots of local footpaths and attractions close by (Mash, Brimham rocks, Ripon etc). The lodge had everything you could need, including cutlery, jigsaws, TVs in bedrooms and books. There's a little sense of community feel to the lodge too if you get talking to others on the site. A couple of things to note - no DVD player in the central living room for those wanting to cuddle up and watch a film on tv/as a family. The dishwasher didn't seem to work, however could have been us not understanding how to use it! The rooms were clean but we found the main table sticky and the main living area could have done with a thorough hoover. There is no phone signal (which we loved!) but we were a little concerned with safety. Minimal contact was nice, with the use of a safe key box. We would absolutely recommend to others, especially if you want a little trip away with dogs!

About the location


Ripon 9 miles; Bedale 6 miles; Northallerton 14 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 Peculiar fame and the Black Sheep Brewery, which now brews 11 million pints of beer a year! The popular towns of Ripon, Thirsk, Northallerton, Richmond 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.
