Morton House & Stables is a beautiful Grade II listed stone farmhouse and adjoining stables set just off the market square in Masham. The house has been completely refurbished with a comfortable and elegant touch, without losing any of the charm of the old building. The property can sleep up to 14 people comfortably and a further 2 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 Morton House its character. The accommodation is set over three floors. Downstairs there are two generous sized reception rooms, a formal sitting room with an open fire and a family room with SKY TV, Playstation and cosy wood burning stove. 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, dramatic wood beams, an extra single day-bed and a very pretty 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 3 bathrooms in total in the main property.
Across a sweet walled garden to the rear of the house you'll find The Stable Block property. Inside you'll find a very sweet cottage-style kitchen, dining and lounge area complete with SKY TV, an X-Box & LCD TV. The lounge also features lovely 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.
With all of the delights of Masham on your doorstep, its the perfect family retreat!
This property requires a payment of a £250 security deposit.
The cottage has a fantastic location, within easy walking distance to the town square. Masham is a very handsome Yorkshire market town where elegant Georgian townhouses gather round a market square. With its picture post card good looks, dainty tea-rooms and country pubs you could happily spend your entire holiday here. Masham also boasts two breweries (Black Sheep & Theakstons), a chocolate shop that counts Daniel Craig as a fan and a Michelin Bib Gourmand 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. Designated an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it's makeup of broad green meadows and gentle rolling hills are a serene introduction to the wilder, more remote Dales to the north. Nidderdale is also home to the stunning Fountains Abbey, a World Heritage Site just outside Ripon.
