Gromit Cottage description

Holiday home
Gromit Cottage is a semi-detached cottage, a former cheese factory situated in the centre of the market town of Masham. This cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms, consisting of one king-size double and one twin (zip/link, can be super king-size double on request), as well as a bathroom. The cottage also has a kitchen with breakfast bar and a sitting room with dining area and woodburner. Outside there is off road parking for two cars and a patio with furniture. Gromit Cottage is an ideal base for a family with plenty to do in Masham, and further field are Ripon, Harrogate and York, all of which are well worth visiting.

The historic market town of Masham is situated in the lower reaches of pretty Wensleydale alongside the River Ure and boasts a market square, crafts, galleries, shops, restaurants and pubs, as well as being home to Theakstons and Black Sheep Breweries.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

What a great cottage, right where you need it; close to everything but away from the noise. An excellent cottage, will recommend to friends and family and use it again myself. Like a home from home.

Liked everything. The cottage was ideally located. The pubs all had great food and ales and the Co-op nearby was very handy. There were lots of lovely local walks and lots to do without having to travel far, when you do travel it's all in beautiful countryside. A brilliant holiday.

The Cottage was very comfortable and well equipped, making it a pleasure to be in. It had extremely comfortable beds and lovely clean, fresh sheets and towels. There was lots of hot water and a great bathroom. An excellent cottage and great location for exploring close to home as well as further afield.

Lovely comfortable cottage, everything we could need for a cosy stay in Masham and in a very central location. Will definitely visit again and would not hesitate to recommend.

The cottage was excellent, well equipped and very comfortable. It was in a quiet location two minutes' walk from the market place. Masham is a lovely village, there are plenty of walks and other things to do. This was our first holiday with our dog and it ticked all of our boxes - all of the pubs welcome dogs which is lovely.

The cottage or should I say house was much more than I expected - it is much bigger than the photographs show. The standards cannot be faulted, the standard of the TV and Wifi were particularly appreciated at this time of year. The location of the Theakston bar just down the road was also welcome.

It was a lovely relaxing holiday in a lovely cottage, very peaceful and homely. We enjoyed the area, it was so beautiful, everywhere was so clean. We would return to the cottage again when visiting the area. Came home really relaxed after such a good stay in the cottage.

This was the nicest cottage we have stayed in for the last 5 years. Very comfortable, everything you would need and a lovely feel to the place. Excellent, quiet location in the village.

I agree with much that has been said before. It was spacious, clean and the beds were very comfortable. Excellent base for touring Dales and shopping trips to Ripon and Harrogate. I have to disagree with the "quiet back lane" comments. On each week day morning the adjacent garage felt the need to rev its removal truck to facilitate the arrival of many cars some of which were later found in the cottage parking space. Please see attached picture of view out of lounge window one morning. The kitchen could of been a bit better equiped. No mop (muddy dog) and a kettle that stayed closed would have been nice. Other utensils very basic and tired. Only real grip with furnishings was dining table and chairs provided. They could at best be described as unstable and rickety. These minor issues aside we did enjoy our stay and short cut to Co-Op was invaluable. Good wi-fi for those that need it. Try the Bruce Arms for pleasant evening but did seem to run out of things alot. Then it was February. Would recommend Grommit Cottage

This is the 5th rental we have used in Masham. It rates very highly when compared to the others. We particularly like the location which is ideal for us as all pubs, shops, breweries are easily accessed from the doorstep. The cottage is very comfortable and has all you need for a great stay. We will definitely return next year.

Absolutely perfect for our 5-night stay. We, that is me, wife, son and dog, wanted a two bedroom hideaway close to the centre of Masham, and convenient for shooting off for days-out. Oh, and pet friendly, of course. Well, Gromit Cottage met all these criteria and more. The owner of the cottage lives in the adjoining property (Wallace Cottage!), so he is on hand should you need anything. OK, we found it a bit hard to find at first, despite comprehensive directions...maybe the best bet is to park up in the Market Square (honesty box parking), and find the place on foot, first. It is literally two minutes' walk from the Square, but you do have to navigate some narrow ginnels! Parking at the property is outside, but there is more than adequate room for two vehicles, and it is 'Private Parking'. All in all, it does exactly what it says on the tin, and more....and please read my review of the nearby 'Bruce Arms' for what we believed to be the best pub/eaterie.

Cottage is very comfortable and spacious. Everything you could need is in place. Two minutes to shops and parking outside cottage. Fantastic week in Masham to see the Grand Depart. Our friends are walkers and will probably revisit another year.
