Fabulous cottage with all the amenities you could ever need. The weather was unkind but the log burner was a godsend, even though the radiators were enough. A welcome cake awaits you which I must ask for the recipe. Highly recommended, pubs and eateries/brewery just...More

A lovely cottage which suited us well. Only disappointment was the shared back yard which wasn't secure so we couldn't let our dog out. Other than that it was ideal.

Pleased to hear you had a good holiday, lots of great walks from the cottage. The rear yard is just for the cottage. Guests often tie their dogs to the hooks fitted to the external wall.

Fabulous welcome with a lovely lemon cake. The Cottage is so lovely and has all the amenities. A true home from home and in the middle of everything in Masham you could need.
