This historic Yorkshire Dales market town still holds weekly markets on the central market square, reputably the largest in Yorkshire. Its popular annual Sheep Fair is held in September. Other events include the Midsummer Beer Festival, the Steam Engine and Fair Organ Rally and the biennial Masham Arts Festival.
The beautiful countryside around Masham can be explored on foot, mountain bike, or road bike as part of the National Cycle Route. Details of routes are provided in the cottage. The Yorkshire Dales is also a popular destination on motorbike with many scenic roads.

Just around the corner from the Market Square is the Recreation Ground, with its play park and tennis courts. On the edge of Masham is the beautiful Masham 9 Hole Golf Course.
Going out in Masham there is an enviable selection of thriving pubs which serve food and local brews from the town's two breweries, Theakston's and Black Sheep.

"The ideal cottage to explore the Dales"
The Snug is excellent. Furnished to a high standard. Impeccably clean and the bed so comfy. Masham is a lovely little market town with everything you need. Two amazing butchers, bakers and candle stick makers

"Delightful, well equipped cottage in a lovely village."
On arrival my wife instantly fell in love with the cottage and the village. The cottage was very well equipped and included useful information about the cottage itself and some of the attractions available in the area. With all shops, cafes & pubs within easy walking distance, the cottage is an ideal base for both exploring the village and the surrounding area. We found the people in the village to be very friendly and hospitable. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Masham and will be back.

"Beautiful cottage in an excellent location"
This is a beautiful, homely cottage which is very tastefully decorated and has everything you could need for a self-catering break. It is situated in an excellent position within Masham with walks from the door and pubs/eateries on the doorstep. I would highly recommend a stay at this cottage, excellent value for money.

"The Snug is very true"
We had a lovely long weekend in the snug. Spotlessly clean fantastic wood fire with everything there to make it. Very well equipped with everything you could thing of. Had a good dry couple of days so did some good walks from the village so the car left parked up. Lovely break will be back in the autumn.

"Lovely, and exactly what it says - snug :)"
Karen was very helpful and we had a lovely, comfortable stay in this pretty little cottage. Masham is lovely nd gave us a good base for exploring this area of Yorkshire.

"A Fabulous Cottage"
Whilst we have no doubt The Snug is a great place to stay in the warmer months, we’d say the very best time to visit is when the nights are long and cold. Then you can truly see that the property lives up to its name, making it a great base for exploring Nidderdale and The Yorkshire Dales. After a hearty breakfast cooked in the well equipped kitchen, you can head into the Dales or even walk from the front door of The Snug. For one walk, we followed the river south from Masham to the ancient woods of Hackfall. It’s a bit muddy in places so don’t forget the gaiters but it’s a lovely walk through some quiet, rolling countryside. Returning to Masham, you can drop your rucksacks at the cottage, before a slice of cake and cuppa at one of Masham’s tea rooms. Finish off with a good pint in front of the fire at the Theakstones Brewery Tap which is two minutes’ walk from The Snug. Back at the cottage, shut the curtains and get the log burner going. The Snug will soon be warm & cosy and you won’t want to go out again. If you don’t fancy cooking then Masham has no shortage of eating options – we had excellent meals at The Bruce Arms (twice) and the Blacksheep Brewery Bistro (once). Harry’s chip-shop also does great fish & chips. Once full of good food and ale, then you’ll get a great night’s sleep at the Snug (the odd bit of night traffic on the road past the house wasn’t a problem for us). The double bed in the main bedroom is huge and super comfy. Booking was very simple and easy. Karen was always quick to answer any questions and the lemon drizzle cake left for our arrival went down a treat with a cuppa. I also managed to lose some binoculars in the cottage which Karen managed to find (once we'd left) and kindly posted back to me - many thanks for that alone! Overall, we loved The Snug and Masham – no doubt we will return!

"Fabulous Christmas spent at 'The Snug'"
Our family of 3 (2 adults and an 8 year old) plus Archie the dog, spent a week including Christmas at The Snug. Arrived to find some lovely homemade mince pies, and a very clean and tidy cottage. The main bedroom is very big with an enormous bed, the second being "what could I say?".... snug! with a set of bunks. Kitchen was well equipped, with plenty of pots, pans and plates etc, plenty of things to be able to do a Christmas dinner. Found it a comfortable place to stay with the dog, it was easy to keep clean, having the odd dirty paw or four, with the wooden floors. We took a long lead which we attached to some loops in the back garden to let him have a wander and would recommend this as the gate at the back is quite open. It was a great location and Masham has lots to offer just on your doorstep. Two breweries, (Black Sheep roast beef - best ever), 2 butchers, green grocers, and Co-op just to mention a few. There were 2 aspects which is maybe something to consider. One is the on street parking, and the other is the traffic on the road outside. It was quite nice not to have lorries etc going passed the property on Christmas Day. Saying that we have recommended the cottage to our family and would certainly return. Communication with Karen was brilliant and would like to thank her for such a lovely place to stay.

"Home from home"
Stayed at The Snug for our annual Christmas break with a group of friends in Masham, it was lovely. Everything you need and every last detail has been thought of by Karen, the owner; she left us a delicious lemon drizzle cake and put up the Christmas decorations for us. The Snug is a two minute walk from the market square and all the pubs and restaurants Masham has to offer. We usually stay in one of the local hotels but decided to book a cottage this year; we would not hesitate to stay at The Snug again, although next year I think we might be fighting off some of our friends who said they loved it as well.

"Blissful escape for the city in frosty, festive Masham"
We booked The Snug for 3 nights much-needed R&R from city life at the start of December. Karen could not have made the process more straightforward, from helping us find a reliable taxi firm to collect us from Northallerton station to fool proof instructions for finding the location. The Snug itself delivers on everything promised and more, with a plethora of information on local attractions, a bed with enough room for 6, the toast wood burner and delicious cake on arrival. Couldn't recommend this highly enough for a short break or a longer stay; it's extremely accessible for a long weekend from London but equally there is so much to do locally you wouldn't be bored for a week or longer. Local walk to Hackfall was one of the most beautiful I've done in my life, food at the White Bear delicious (wonderfully festive atmosphere) and the Black Sheep brewery unmissable - not to mention brilliant for Christmas gifts.
