Grade II listed stone farmhouse and adjoining stables set in the charming market town of Masham within the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, perfectly situated for exploring the picture-postcard area.

Enjoy a relaxing break in this beautiful Grade II listed stone farmhouse and adjoining stables, set just off the market square in Masham. The house has been decorated with a comfortable and elegant touch, without losing any of the charms of the original building. The property can sleep up to 14 people comfortably and a further two guests can be accommodated on roll-away beds.

 Inside the main house, you'll find stone floors, exposed wooden beams, roaring fires and many more charming features which give the property its character. The accommodation is set over three floors. Downstairs, there are two generously sized reception rooms, a formal sitting room with an open fire and a family room with SkyTV, PlayStation and a cosy wood burner. The large farmhouse-style kitchen and dining area is also a lovely place to relax with friends and family. A downstairs WC is available for your convenience.

 There are four charming bedrooms upstairs. One super king-size room, a double and a twin with the stunning master bedroom in the loft. The master bedroom comes complete with a king-size bed, wooden beams, an extra single day-bed and an en-suite with a bath. The twin bedroom also has an en-suite shower room and there is a further family bathroom with a shower over the bath giving you three bathrooms in total in the main property.

 Across a pretty walled garden to the rear of the house, you'll find The Stable Block property. Inside, there is a cottage-style kitchen, dining and lounge area complete with Sky TV and an X-Box. The lounge also features French doors leading out to the patio.

There is a bright and airy downstairs en-suite (shower) bedroom which also enjoys access to the garden via French doors. On sunny days the sunshine pours through the window onto the bed. Upstairs, a further two bedrooms (a king-size and a twin) are joined by a further shower room.

Both buildings are within a few yards of one another and a baby monitor will reach from the bedroom in The Stable Block to the main house. The garden is fully fenced, so perfect for little ones to run around in, and it catches the sun in the warmer months.

The cottage has a fantastic location, within a 5-minute walk to the town square. Masham is a handsome Yorkshire market town where elegant Georgian townhouses gather around a market square. With its picture-postcard good looks, quaint tearooms and country pubs, you could happily spend your entire holiday here. Masham also boasts two breweries (Black Sheep and Theakstons), a chocolate shop that counts Daniel Craig as a fan and a Michelin-star restaurant.

Beyond Masham, you have the exquisite joy of the Yorkshire Dales. Part of the enduring appeal here is the surprisingly varied landscape; you'll find lush green valleys, meandering meadows, dramatic moorlands, magnificent mountains, rocky crags and exquisite wilderness, all peppered with charming villages and cosy inns welcoming you back to civilisation.

Nidderdale, known as the civilised corner of the Dales, provides the perfect setting for a relaxed countryside jaunt, 10 miles away. Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it's makeup of broad green meadows and gently rolling hills are a serene introduction to the wilder, more remote dales to the north. Nidderdale is also home to the magnificent Fountains Abbey, a World Heritage Site just outside Ripon.

Location

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

With a varied landscape of windswept dales, heather-clad moors and dramatic coast, interspersed with picturesque towns and villages, vibrant cities and a rich historical heritage, Yorkshire is rightly considered one of Britain's premier holiday destinations. Known as 'God's Own County', Yorkshire has nearly one-third of England's National Parkland, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and three sections of coastline designated as Heritage Coast.

Offering infinite opportunities for lovers of the great outdoors, the wild expanse of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in North and West Yorkshire is a glorious mix of awe-inspiring scenery, imposing castles, characterful Dales' villages and drystone walls. While to the east, the North York Moors National Park offers atmospheric moorland, fragrant pine forests and charming towns tucked away within steep-sloped valleys. Extending all the way to the Yorkshire Coast, you can even experience a traditional day at the seaside at popular resorts including Whitby, Flamborough and Scarborough. It's a beautiful terrain to explore.

A visit to the historical city of York is a must. Renowned for its medieval architecture, the magnificent York Minster and a myriad of museums, independent shops and exceptional eateries, you will not be disappointed. Then there's the chalk landscape of the Yorkshire Wolds, known to have inspired David Hockney. And with a packed calendar of events and festivals each year, including the Malton Food Festival, the Tour de Yorkshire and the Great Yorkshire Show, there's always something exciting to enjoy.

Our holiday cottages in Yorkshire are handpicked to ensure a luxurious and uniquely memorable experience. From dog-friendly cottages in the country to large family houses by the sea and romantic retreats in the city, we have a holiday in Yorkshire to suit everyone.
