Dairy Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This is a thoughtfully restored traditional terraced cottage in a peaceful cul-de-sac in the heart of Masham. It has been renovated to a high standard and the cottage offers warm and comfortable accommodation with plenty of character. The spacious fitted kitchen is well designed and has a beautiful slate floor, there is a snug with an open fire and exposed beams, the main sitting dining room also has an open fire and a polished wooden floor and both rooms offer cosy and inviting spaces to relax in. The three bedrooms are light and elegant and the bathroom is of the same high standard as the rest of the property. This characterful cottage is a fabulous base offering quality accommodation in which to enjoy this glorious area.

The historic market town of Masham is situated in Wensleydale alongside the River Ure surrounded by gently rolling countryside. The town has a huge market place and was the site for annual sheep fairs with some of the animals coming from the Abbeys of Jervaulx and Fountains. The tradition still continues today in September but on a much smaller scale. The town has a good range of shops, restaurants and pubs and there is a market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There are many walks in the area including a 10-mile walk along the River Ure which is perhaps one of the best walks in the UK. With so much to see and do, this is a fabulous place for a holiday whatever the time of year.

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?

Gas central heating with open fires in living area and snug. Electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and dryer, dishwasher, TV, DVD, wireless broadband internet connection, stereo/CD player. Gas, electricity and initial supply of fuel for open fires inc. in rent. Bed linen inc. in rent. Cot and highchair available on request. Off road parking for two cars. Enclosed rear garden mainly flagged with raised beds and garden furniture. One well-behaved pet welcome. Shops, pubs and restaurants 2 mins walk.

I have been to Dairy Cottage before. I feel very at home in this cottage, and it is very comfortable throughout. It is also very close to all amenities which is essential for our party which is made up of 65-87 year olds.
Mrs Mcdonald

Mrs Foster
May 2013
Dairy Cottage was delightful, warm and Welcoming. It is comfortably furnished, and very well equipped. The garden was secure, so Russell the dog was able to wander in and out as he pleased. The village pubs served very good food, and allowed dogs, which was a bonus. Everyone was so friendly, and the scenery is magnificent.
Mrs Yufera
December 2012
The location is perfect, the cottage is very sweet and we really appreciated the Christmas tree and the welcome chocolates! The living area was great for the kids, lots of room to play and we had a great Christmas lunch at the table. The kitchen and laundry facilities were also very appreciated.

We rented this cottage for visiting family. Many thanks for such a beautiful house at such a reasonable price. It was the Canadian part of our family's first visit to the UK and the impression they received of the accommodation was excellent. It really made the week for them.
Mr Mrs Powers

A good central location in town yet still quiet and with good privacy.
Mrs Read
September 2012
The location was excellent, in the centre of the village within easy walking distance to all facilities but with safe parking available for 2 cars outside. The property was very well equipped. A lovely time was had by us all!

The second visit was as good as the first, fabulous!
Mrs Turner
September 2011
The proprietor was very helpful concerning a couple of questions we had prior to our holiday. A great location and plenty to do despite the bad weather; we were out every day with two very young boys. There are two local breweries within close proximity and it was nice to be able to walk to shops and not take the car. The cottage was in a lovely location and a friendly neighbour had rabbits!
Ms North
July 2011
Masham is a lovely village and Dairy cottage is charming. It has a sheltered courtyard and is situated up a quiet lane, safe for our dog! Masham has good choice of pubs/food and is not far from places such as Harrogate and Ripon. There are also opportunities for lovely walks.
Mrs Little
May 2011
We wanted a get away from it all cottage with easy access to a few shops and pubs and beautiful surrounding countryside. That is exactly what we got!
Mrs Coleman
May 2011
The cottage provided ample space, quiet location but near to pubs and shops. Everything you could need when on holiday.
Mr Oglesby
December 2010
Dairy Cottage felt like home the moment we walked in. It is well set out and very cosy. During our three day short break, there was four inches of snow on the ground and it snowed every day. The log fire was a bonus as were the local pubs for there friendliness and good food and Theakstons ales. We took our dog and the walks around Masham are very good even in the snow. I would recommend this cottage for it's location in the the very pretty village of Masham. We hope to book again in the new year.
Miss Curtis
October 2010
Cosy well equipped cottage in the heart of Masham although tucked away and quiet. The chocolates and welcoming card were nice touches and our request for an extra key was met in a friendly way. This was our second visit to the cottage. We love the walking in the area and the riding stables at Swinton. A new experience was clay pigeon shooting locally at Warren Gill - highly recommended, as is the coffee at Suncatchers in the market square (once you get past the quirky decor!)
Mr Ibbetson
October 2010
The proximity of the cottage is excellent and in the main it is comfortable and well planned. The local information available was very helpful and the welcome chocolates much appreciated.

Ms Hodgson
September 2010
The cottage was well appointed in a convenient location. It was very clean and tidy and generally well equipped. Masham is an excellent base for exploring the area. We will definitely return to this part of North Yorkshire and almost certainly to the same cottage. We even had decent weather...
Mr Mrs Simons
August 2010
On our arrival, we were greeted with a welcome card and a nice box of chocolates which was greatly appreciated after our long journey. The cottage was a good family size, and nice and cozy at night time. The property has very good facilities, washing machine, dishwasher etc, which we found very useful.
Ms Playford

This is the third visit to Dairy Cottage and once again it was home from home. Comfortable, clean and in such a brilliant location. And the weather was - for the third time - absolutely fabulous!!
Ms Harrison

Spending time with family and having a homely feel to our stay, Masham is a lovely place. We had a great time and there are lots to see around the area; nice shops, homemade foods in pub; handmade sausages. The people are so welcoming.
Ms Playford

Ms Reed

The Cottage had everything we could wish for; the kitchen was well equipped and spacious, and the washing machine was a godsend after a day out walking in the muddy fields. We loved how cosy the sitting room was on an evening, especially with the fire lit. We loved our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to come back again.
Miss Keating
April 2015
A homely cottage in a great location.
Mr Howard
October 2015
Beautiful cottage in the charming, welcoming village of Masham. The property was larger than expected and had loads of character. The central heating was more than sufficient but the open fire in the lounge gave it that something extra. The cottage had everything you could wish for including washing machine and dish washer. At the rear of the property is a small garden area which was a real suntrap when the sun was shining.
Miss Fletcher
September 2014

Miss Crookall
May 2007
Dairy Cottage is ideally situated in a lovely peaceful market town and just a few minutes walk from the shops and pubs. It is located on the outskirts of the Dales and not far from the Yorkshire Moors - so ideal to go out about. The cottage is very homely and has everything you could possibly need plus more! The kitchen is particularly well equipped and had a lot more than we could imagine. The cottage is very well decorated throughout and we had a thoroughly enjoyable week.
Mrs Wyllie
April 2007
A real home from home - only tidier! Very convenient for shops, pubs and buses. Recommend the white bear for excellent meals/service and Ureddle Glass for presents you won't want to give away.

Mr Ward
September 2005
The cottage was everything that the brochure said it was. It was very comfortable and well-supplied. It was also well-placed with the local shops, pubs (and breweries!) just around the corner. We spent the week hill-walking and were lucky that the weather held out for us.
Mr Bishop
July 2005
I can honestly say on behalf of all of my family that we were all very impressed with the cottage, its location is spot on for our needs and we found the local park was brilliant. We will be booking the cottage again.
Mrs Roughan
June 2005
The really important things were spot on - the most comfortable beds we have ever had in a cottage, super modern kitchen and a bathroom to die for. The cottage is very convenient for walking around Masham and with a bit of care we could park both cars. And, of course, North Yorkshire itself which is the star of the show.
Mr Littlewood
May 2005
One of the best hoilday cottages we have rented for a long time.
Mr Perkins
April 2005
We were greated by the owner upon arrival and presented with a bottle of wine. The owner gave us a quick tour of the cottage and then informed us of attractions in the village. The surronding area is fantastic with a great deal of activities. All round a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday, would recomend to all.
Mr Mooney
April 2005
Dairy cottage was welcoming and comfortable. Although we are regular visitors to Masham, the cottage made our stay very pleasant which was important as the weather was appalling!
Mrs Riley
March 2005
We had a very enjoyable holiday in Masham, Yorks. The cottage was cosy and warm and most aspects of it were very comfortable. The twin beds were very comfy.

Mr Thornton
December 2004
Masham is a delightful village well placed to access most of Yorkshire. The cottage is basic but well appointed and more than adequate accommodation. The White Bear across the road is a good location for eating out.
January 2015
Have stayed here twice.lovely to have dog friendly cottage in a village with shops/pub very near and no sheep! Lots of excellent days out catering for all interests/shops/old trains /walks on dales/ Cottage is clean well presented and has all amenities
December 2012
Overall we liked the cottage,great position-quiet,but within easy reach of every amenity.Masham is a great,little town.The cottage itself just could do with a little T.L.C,a lick of paint and the carpets upstairs,cleaned.(or maybe floorboards throughout.)Also,the cottage is described as having a garden,when in reality,it is just an enclosed,concrete,yard.Luckily,this wasn't a problem for our dog as lovely,riverside/country walks are a couple of minutes away. We were lucky with the" Great British Weather" and had a glorious week.We were also lucky enough to catch the annual Muker, agricultural show in beautiful Swaledale-the highlight of our holiday,a great day out.We would return as we loved the town and surrounding area.nothing nicer on a hot,sunny,day than sipping beer in the "Bull Inn In Paradise"!
January 2012
Dairy cottage in Masham is a very nicely presented cottage and very comfortable. Masham is a particularly friendly place. While we were ther we visited York, found a lovely kennels that took the dog for the day, and Harrogate, Betty's tea rooms should not be missed.
October 2011
We had a lovely stay in this cottage. It's well equiped and very homely. The masham area has so much to offer for a peaceful holiday
August 2011
ideal for amenities. plenty of places to eat & drink within walking distance . cottage spacious downstairs, unfortunately parking was a bit crushed as cottage at the end of a cul-de-sac.good to have wi-fi.
January 2010
This was our 2nd stay at the cottage, there were 4 adults and 1 child, but there is plenty of room. It's very handy for the village and the Bay Horse pub, which is brilliant. Also easy to get to York, Ripon and Harrogate.
November 2010
Cottage was very clean, well equipped and welcoming. Facilities were excellent (including free broadband) with a large, well equipped kitchen and cosy, comfortable living room. Tucked away from the road into Masham the cottage is conveniently placed for town amenities and access to the surrounding area of Wensleydale - which is stunning. A pet friendly home from home which we hope to re-visit. Would definitely recommend.
December 2009
We had booked a holiday week commencing 4 April 2009 at this lovely cottage but, unfortunately, due to my Mothers' death on that day we were unable to go. However, we fully intend to return to Dairy Cottage sometime in 2010 as we have always enjoyed our holidays in Masham
Mr Fisher
May 2016
We have stayed in this cottage several times. It has maintained the high standard of service and presentation. The town of Masham is convenient and has good facilities
