Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Craigendale Cottage is situated on Park Street which is one of the small roads leading from the market place in Masham. It is situated amongst the rows of finely built terraced cottages within the conservation area of the old town.
At the front is a well equipped, modern kitchen with room for family dining. To the rear is a cosy lounge with exposed ceiling joists, dressed stone fireplace consisting of flagged hearth and 'living flame' stove. The rear door from the lounge leads out to the patio garden. Rising between the lounge and kitchen, stairs lead to a front double bedroom, rear twin bedroom and tiled bathroom with bath, shower, washbasin and toilet. Both bedrooms have exposed beams and the double front room still retains the original Victorian fireplace and surround. Behind the cottage is a graveled patio garden with table, chairs and flower pots which provide an enclosed space to sit and relax.
Craigendale Cottage has been lovingly restored with a balance of original features alongside modern appliances and lighting systems. The contrast of colour, furnishings and fittings all help to give warmth and comfort during a pleasant stay.

Why the Yorkshire Dales…?
Carved from the rugged Pennine hills by ancient glaciers, gently eroded by rushing streams and then softened by meandering rivers, the Yorkshire Dales form one of the most varied and spectacular landscapes in Britain. Scenery so breathtaking and unspoilt that some 680 square miles have been protected as a National Park since 1954 - the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are several "dales", these are Wensleydale, Swaledale, Bishopdale, Coverdale, Raydale, Arkengarthdale and Wharfedale.
If you are a keen walker, or merely an ambler, there are over 1200 miles of well-maintained footpaths from which to enjoy the countryside at first hand, but don't worry if you prefer to drive for here the roads can offer some of the most panoramic routes in England. Waterfalls abound more than anywhere else in Britain, stately peaks and heather moors, dry stone walls and tree lined meadows, abbeys, castles and stately homes, grey stone villages and of course the warm dales people are all to be enjoyed.
Pick any weekday and there's sure to be a market at a nearby town or visit the Lake District, York, the North York Moors, the Yorkshire Coast, Bronte Country or Hadrian's Wall - all less than 2 hours drive away. Visit the local craft centres or have family fun at the Lightwater Valley Amusement Park. In fact, whatever your pleasure it's almost sure to be found in the Yorkshire Dales.
Have fun, relax, breathe fresh clean air, be awed by the timeless beauty, feel moved and refreshed by the experience but most of all enjoy it!
Masham, found in Lower Wensleydale, has been an ancient market town since 1393. It boasts of one of the largest market places in the north of England and is faced by stylish Georgian buildings which surround the central market cross.
The once famed annual sheep sales, where over 80,000 head would be sold in just three days still continues to this day during September, albeit on a much smaller scale, as does one of the North’s largest steam rallies in July. Now most famous for the Theakston’s and Black Sheep breweries, both owned by the Theakston family who first started brewing in 1827 and warmly welcome visitors to watch them ply their crafts and sample the rewards of their labour.
The town is embraced by the River Ure and sits elevated, picturesquely with the tall spire of Saint Mary’s church visible from miles around. Pretty riverside walks with parkland and playing fields are on the doorstep. The nearby stately grounds of Swinton Castle with its delicious restaurant, the fun-park at Lightwater Valley and the not so distant attractions of Ripon, Harrogate and York offer enjoyment and excitement for all.

Thank you for your positive comments and we are pleased that you found everything needed for a comfortable stay. On parking, we suggest (in our welcome book) for visitors to run onto the kerb outside the cottage or alternatively on Park Square which is about 25 metres away on the corner. Masham is a real working farming/market town and tractors/farm vehicles are quiet a spectacle for visitors during the day!
