The Experience

Drive past heather-covered hills and unruffled sheep to reach this neat place in the Dales. Built in the 19th century, the cottage stands in a cluster of old farmworkers’ houses all spruced up with smart front doors and pretty gardens. Downstairs there’s a snug sitting room with a beamed ceiling, a stripped pine table and a wood-burner (logs are on the house). It’s all as neat-as-a-pin in the light-filled kitchen with its Belfast sink, all the stuff you need and checked blinds at the windows.  Head upstairs to sleep in a calming room with a white iron bedstead, soft feather pillows, exposed brick walls and a fireplace stacked with logs; help yourselves to Oakwood aromatics in the spruce little bathroom. In sunny weather you can sit in the garden or take a bottle of wine and stoke up the BBQ beside the restored summerhouse.  It’s a short stroll to the Black Swan at Fearby for good pub food and you can organise bikes (Yorkshire hasn’t been the same since the Tour de France) to explore this part of Yorkshire at a gentler pace. Ripon Cathedral, The Druid’s Temple and the brewery town of Masham are close.

Lovely hidden cottage in a sleepy Dales village, picture perfect scenery and comfortable cosy furnishings. We had a lovely weekend here, helped in no small part by the welcoming hosts and their useful information packs. Thank you, we will return soon

Peter, Newcastle upon Tyne

Beautiful cottage in peaceful surroundings but only one mile away from Masham which has every shop you will need. Stunning decor,super cosy,superbly equipped. Slept really well in the comfortable bed. Lovely welcome gifts and toiletries. Perfectly placed for drives and walks into the stunning Dales. Five stars.


Absolutely loved our stay this weekend, what a great cottage in a fantastic location, left feeling so relaxed and refreshed. From the moment we arrived we felt so at home, lovely welcoming touches, plentiful supply of logs, and some local toiletries. The cottage is in the perfect location to explore and there is plenty to do. We will definitely return!

Jodie, LEEDS

The 3 of us (dog included!) had a wonderful stay here over New Year. Lots of great walks on the doorstep as well as some excellent dog-friendly pubs nearby in Masham. The cottage itself was extremely comfortable, cosy and very well equipped. We will definitely return and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from John & Alison Marshall

  • You're a 20 minute stroll from the pretty market town of Masham; home to the Black Sheep and Theakstons Breweries. You'll find the best spot for breakfast and lunch is at Johnny Bagdad's on the Square.
  • Great local pub in the village of Fearby - The Black Swan with one of the best beer gardens with far reaching views in Yorkshire! Arriving late? Let me prepare some 'Yorkshire Tapas' for you or leave a breakfast platter with lots of lovely local goodies!
  • Druids Temple an hours' walk from the cottage door, fabulous views overlooking Leighton Reservoir then enjoy a visit to their Bivouac Café for delicious fodder.
  • Love cycling? Bring your bike or we can hire for you! Le Grand Depart paid a visit through Masham in 2014 as part of the 'Le Tour' - why not cycle it for yourself?
  • We are quite arty in Masham! Visit the Nolon Stacey Gallery along with the Little Gallery, The Gallery and the Blue Light Gallery!
  • You cannot leave until you've visited a brewery or two, enjoyed a local beer, tasted Brymor Ice Cream, Wensleydale Cheese and a Masham sausage or three!
