  • “The cottage a Mowbray Court was first class.”

    Comfortable modern accommodation for all. Dog loved the safe enclosed garden as we sat out as we were lucky with the weather. Extremely well equipped kitchen. Beds comfy and nicely decorated. We could easily live there, just superb!

The property

A lovely semi-detached, stone-built cottage situated in the centre of the picturesque village of West Tanfield, just four miles from Masham.

Furnished and decorated in a contemporary style, this West Tanfield cottage provides a superb base for a relaxing break in this beautiful corner of the Yorkshire Dales.

This West Tanfield cottage features a spacious sitting room with oak flooring and patio doors leading to a beautiful, well-stocked enclosed garden and patio area; in the winter you can cosy up in the sitting room with a good book, and in the summer, throw open the doors and let the sun stream in, or dine alfresco on the patio.

Upstairs, there are two delightful bedrooms, a master bedroom with king-size bed, and a good-sized twin bedroom.

Tasteful throughout, this Yorkshire holiday cottage provides ideal accommodation for a small family or couple to get away from it all.

With two excellent pubs just a short stroll, The Bruce Arms is a traditional country inn where you can enjoy sitting in front of real log fires tucking into a home-cooked meal and a hand-pulled local ale.

The Bull is a very old traditional country inn set on the banks of the river and was once the ferryman’s cottage and the artist JMW Turner drew scenes of the nearby ancient Marmion Tower on one of his many tours of Yorkshire.

The amenities of Masham, including the Black Sheep Visitors’ Centre and Bistro, and the twice-weekly markets are on hand, whilst excellent walking is on the doorstep.

Market towns such as Richmond, Leyburn and Hawes are also within easy reach.

This West Tanfield cottage is an excellent base to enjoy the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

About the location


Masham 4 miles; Ripon 6 miles.

This small picturesque village is situated on the banks of the River Ure, at the eastern end of Wensleydale in the midst of some of Yorkshire's most beautiful scenery. It comprises a scattering of dwellings and farmsteads, and also offers two excellent old pubs and a store/Post Office. West Tanfield 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. Nearby Ripon, dominated by its imposing cathedral, has a great deal to offer visitors - the cathedral with its 1300 year old crypt, the Yorkshire Law & Order Museums, various craft markets, an International Music Festival and Ripon Races; not to mention the many beautiful riverside and canal walks. Nearby Masham 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 famous Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden are within easy driving distance and it is just a few miles to the popular Lightwater Valley Theme Park with its Factory Shopping Village. Skipton, Harrogate and the historic cathedral city of York are close by, as are the great stately homes of Castle Howard and Harewood House, the Cistercian Abbeys of Fountains, Rievaulx and Jervaulx, and the castles of Middleham, Bolton and Richmond. A wonderful picturesque Dales village.
