Enjoy a unique retreat in the pretty town of Masham, perfect for couples and small families wanting to explore the picturesque countryside, dales and post-card pretty villages.
Nestled in rural splendour, this former coal bunker offers superb accommodation for couples and small families and is situated within the grounds of a seasonal campsite. Sleeping four guests across two bedrooms, you’ll have plenty of on-site facilities such as a friendly shop and cafe, and the bustling town of Masham is a short 1-mile walk away with its plethora of shops, galleries and curiosities including two well-known breweries. It is the ideal destination for those with a love of the outdoors and a thirst for adventure, but you’ll just as easily while away a few hours with gentle scenic strolls and hearty pub lunches.
Beneath the charming exterior is a marvellous sanctuary characterised by sloped ceilings and timber beams. This rustic appeal offers a surprising contrast to modern touches such as underfloor heating and ambient lighting that blend effortlessly together to create a homely atmosphere. Kick off your boots after navigating the surrounding landscape, pouring a soothing glass of red wine and curling up on the deep, plush sofas to watch TV. On chilly days, the open-plan living space is cosy and welcoming, inviting you to snuggle up with hot chocolate and treats galore.
Channel your inner celebrity chef and cook in the kitchen area, appreciating its stylish decor and wooden worktop space. You’ll have an electric oven and hob for preparing hearty meals plus a microwave for quick suppers, and there is no need to squabble over who does the washing up thanks to the dishwasher. Store your spoils in the fridge/freezer, stocking up on essentials from the various shops you’ll encounter on your travels as well as rummaging through your welcome pack of goodies too. Light candles and gather around the table for special dinners, lingering over delicious dishes and chatter that lasts well into the night. On the nights that you are simply too weary to consider cooking, why not bring home a tasty takeaway to give yourself a well-earned break?
Weary from a day of adventures, there is nothing nicer than a long shower in the contemporary bathroom, washing your worries away and indulging in your favourite toiletries. Both bedrooms are restful havens with a TV apiece when you are ready to retire for the night’s sleep. You can be as flexible as needed for your party, choosing to set the beds up as twins or a super-king-size bed. Large windows allow natural light to pour inside through the timber-framed glass, casting a warm glow throughout your sleeping quarters that benefit from high ceilings, original beams and useful storage.
Wake up to the glorious sound of birdsong, slipping outside into the dappled sunshine to perch at your bistro-style table on the patio. The surrounding grounds of the seasonal caravan site are a delight to explore, and a short 1-mile walk will bring you into the centre of Masham with its pretty shops and eateries. In terms of practicality, there is a handy on-site laundry block as well as a shop and a cafe for when you want to pick up some essentials and enjoy a coffee. Off-road parking is provided for one car, but there’s more space available in the main parking area.
