Stayed for 3 nights midweek break. Couldn't fault the cottage, had everything you would need for a relaxing break, plenty of room and access to Masham village within a 2 minute walk. The village has great real ale pubs, 2 breweries worth visiting, local shops, a lovely church and offers access to plenty of nearby towns and villages. Lovely countryside and walks nearby, we didn't use the car all the time we were there. The owner had baked us a Victoria sponge cake which was a lovely touch and well received. The log burner was very cosy and nice to come back to when we had been out and about.
Would definitely visit again, for longer next time to make the most of the area.
