The cottage was full of charm and character, it was cosy, warm and was a wonderful place to come back to after a days walking or sightseeing. The cottage had everything you could possibly need and it was great to have parking right outside. It also has a wonderful and fully equipped kitchen with an amazing gas cooking range which we made full use of. There are also some lovely places to eat within a few minutes walk. We really enjoyed our week.

The cottage was in the ideal location looking onto the square. We found the people of Masham very warm and friendly. Eating out was very good and we also loved the range of craft shops and the specialist butchers and general shops. The history of Masham along with the Church and cemetery were fascinating. Masham is perfect for touring the rest of the Dales.

The location of the town is very good for sightseeing in any direction. The position of the property meant that it was possible to do all shopping, at some very good specialist shops, without getting into the car.

Very pleasing to the eye inside and outside. Ideally situated for shops, eateries and for surrounding places of interest. St Mary's Church is very welcoming and deserves a visit. Masham itself is very much alive and with it.

The cottage was ideally located, and the owners who met us at the property were very welcoming and left a lovely home made cake some milk for us. It was really nice to go to a property that is so clean and freshly decorated and with comfortable seating.

This was our first visit to Masham and we booked into The Square 17 Market Place and what a gem. Located at the church end of the village square this grade 2 listed cottage has everything.beamed ceilings,an excellent warm lounge and a fully fitted kitchen with a Stanley cooking range that all but talks. Wonderful walks from the front door and no problems with parking.There are lots of first rate dining options, we particularly liked Harrys Fish Shop and the White Bear. For a pleasant afternoon or evening try the local cricket club,it is in a lovely setting by the river and probably serves the best pint in Masham and that says something. .

The location was perfect. The cottage was really nice, but the beds were so uncomfortable that although we would love to rebook, really concerned about the beds. If they were renewed would gladly rebook

Just had a great week in this excellent cottage everything you could want to have a great stay in the Yorkshiredales. One of the best cottages we have stayed in masham is lovely village if you are looking to book stay here

17 Market Place is, unsurprisingly, located in the centre of Masham looking out on the market square which is used by local stallholders on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The property is excellent with a lounge, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We were met by the property owner who lives a stone's throw away and he showed us around the property and handed over the keys. We did not use the cooking facilities during our week's stay but the kitchen had all the required equipment. The cottage was clean, well presented and the provided towels and bed linens were new and fresh smelling. The only slight negative is, in a town with very little access to wi-fi in the local pubs and hotel, the property would benefit from the addition of internet access. Not a necessity for sure, but it is the only feature that we found lacking in the property. Nevertheless, we would recommend 17 Market Place and look forward to returning in the near future. Overall, the ideal spot to stay in Masham and you will not be disappointed.

This was a superbly furnished house.Plenty of information for local walks and activities and the surrounding Dales.With four pubs in the village there was no need to use the fantastic cooker range!! On arrival the homemade cake was very pleasing.We would reccommend this as a great vacation home.
