Masham, Yorkshire

Masham is located in Lower Wensleydale 8 miles from the A1 and 9 miles northwest of the city of Ripon. 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.

The shops in Masham are predominately small independents offering a fantastic range of essential goods and gifts. The town has been visited by the Hairy Bikers, the Two Fat Ladies and has featured in the Dales Programme on ITV.


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. There are several cafes located around the Market Square offering homemade food. For something a little quicker and more informal, try a takeaway, Fish and Chips or Indian.

“The Snug , Wow, What can I say, it does what it says on the tin”

Reviewed 30 Mar 2016

Charming clean and warm cottage with the icing on the cake being a huge comfy bed with bedding smelling of washing powder , bliss ! Talking of cake we really appreciated the delicious lemon cake, chocolates and flowers waiting for us on arrival . Thankyou

“Lovely cottage perfectly located for the market square, pubs and walks”

Reviewed 21 Dec 2015

We enjoyed a 3 night stay which was perfect for experiencing the local sights. The log fire was soon blazing and the complimentary lemon drizzle cake was delicious. Black Sheep & Theakstons breweries are a short walk as was the large market square where we sampled a few ales in the Bruce Arms and a tasty lunch in the Kings Head. The White Bear next to the Black Sheep brewery also tempted us, Harry's chippie serves up fantastic fish n chips with batter too! Our 2 black labs had a great time walking to Hackfall Wood and swimming in the Ure, the recent flooding had receded unveiling stranded salmon 200 yrds inland! Altogether a wonderful few days (we were lucky with the weather) and we plan a return visit in the summer.. Mark & Judith

“Excellent location, warm and cosy”

Reviewed 28 Nov 2015

Perfect location for a short stay in Masham. The cottage was easy to book and as described. The home baking on our arrival was much appreciated! Would definitely recommend staying here.

“Great cottage”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2015

The Snug was a very well-presented cottage, comfortable enough to enjoy relaxing in if the weather means you don't feel like going out. Masham town has plenty of interest in terms of galleries, cafes (and breweries, obviously), and Ripon and Harrogate are both within comfortable range. Plenty of outdoors to explore, but maybe a damp November is not the best time for this. Would certainly consider returning at another time of year. Karen was very efficient and helpful dealing with all stages of the booking process and stay.

“Great location for visiting places of interest.”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2015

Quaint, cosy cottage within walking distance of local shops and eateries. The Snug was clean, well equipped and the lemon cake was delicious. We did have a minor problem (of our own making) which was sorted out without fuss quickly. We hope to return at a future date.

“The ideal cottage to explore the Dales”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2015

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.”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2015

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”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2015

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”

Reviewed 17 May 2015

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 :)”

Reviewed 10 May 2015

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.
