Pott Hall Cottage Countryside Cottage description

Holiday home
This semi-detached, stone built farmhouse is situated on a working cattle and sheep farm in a peaceful hamlet, just four miles from the market town of Masham. Set in an elevated position and benefiting from spectacular views over Leighton Reservoir, this property has been renovated to a high standard and provides spacious, well-equipped accommodation with two bedrooms sleeping up to four people. With spacious and stylish accommodation, a cosy sitting room and a pretty garden with valley views, this cottage is a wonderful home from home for a family or two couples.

Situated in the lower reaches of Wensleydale alongside the River Ure is the picturesque Dales village of Masham. Set in gently rolling farmland, the town boasts a huge market square, which is host to a regular Wednesday and Saturday market. There are lots of walks available throughout the area, including a recently reopened 10-mile trail along the banks of the Ure, arguably one of the best of its kind in the country. The town boasts a good range of crafts, galleries, shops, restaurants and pubs though is perhaps best known as the home to the Black Sheep Brewery, now producing 11 million pints of beer a year! The popular towns of Ripon and Harrogate are an easy drive away and offer a wide range of facilities and things to do.

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?

I wanted to introduce my family to the delights of Yorkshire. "Why can't we stay in London?", my Russian wife said. I think she and the kids thought I was completely mad as we drove along ever-narrowing country lanes lined with dry stone walls, leaving the last vestige of civilisation behind in Masham and heading out to the end of Leighton Reservoir. But then my 14-year daughter cried out "Sheep!" She had never seen one in the flesh before! and she was sold on the location. As soon as he saw the trampoline in the field behind the cottage, my 11-year old son was similarly smitten. It took a few minutes longer for my wife to appreciate Potts Hall Cottage but as soon as she had inspected the interior and realised that it was clean, warm, and cosy AND the beds were firm AND the owners had left some welcome goodies for us, she too was convinced. This location is spectacular, with a fantastic view over Leighton Reservoir and hills rising above to the moors. Looking out of the window, we were intrigued to see a tower standing alone and proud on the opposite side of the valley. A very pleasant hike ensued through the fields of sheep, across the reservoir sluice gates, and then up through the bracken and heather, over the crags, to a windswept and isolated monument to some past inhabitant's folly. For anyone wanting to get away from it all and live a simple life for a few days in the knowledge that fish 'n' chips and Yorkshire ale are available a short distance away in Masham, this is an ideal location. But don't tell everyone!

I highly recommend Pott Hall Cottage. If you wish for peace and tranquility among some beautiful countryside this is the place for you. There was a warm welcome and the view of Leighton Reservoir from the garden was worth the journey alone! With many places of interest nearby we made an excellent choice.
December 2011
A very cosy cottage with spectacular views, and lots of space for the children to play. Welcoming touches from the owners. A great location from which to explore the Dales and other areas. We had a fantastic holiday

December 2009
Great, well-appointed cottage, full of character and great location with views from the garden of a lake, hills and sheep. What more do you want from the Dales? Drive over the moor to nearby beautiful Nidderdale. Lovely time here - even found myself talking to the hens!
December 2009
I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. Set on a working farm with all the fascination that brings for children, the cottage is superbly well-equipped with all that a family might need for a fantastic stay. Just far enough from the madding crowd and close enough to local ameneties, it provides an ideal base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. The owners really have thought of everything - from a welcoming loaf a freshly baked bread to a cupboard packed with board games for those evening's in. Perfect!
