The delightful market town of Masham is situated in the breathtakingly beautiful region of Lower Wensleydale. The town itself boasts a large Georgian market square, said to be one of the largest in England. With a range of local shops, tearooms and great places to eat, Masham is a popular destination all year round. Masham is also famous for its family-run breweries, steam engines and annual sheep fair. Both the Black Sheep Brewery and Theakston Brewery offer tours from their visitor centre.

With a thriving creative community, you can enjoy watercolour paintings, screen prints, poetry and much more from local artists. Miles of stunning walks and bike trails can be enjoyed from the doorstep which allow you to explore the surroundings of the Yorkshire Dales from morning until night.

The holiday cottage was perfect for what we needed for a work event. Close to all the market square and the brewery. Beautiful house and location!



Very centrally located ideal for Masham centre. Lovely river walk straight from the door. Great property, everything you need particularly kitchen wise. Slightly quirky set over 4 floors with the bathroom on the lower ground floor. Lovely outdoor seating area. Fabulous place.



Excellent accommodation but a dressing table in the main bedroom would make it even better.



We stayed here for 4 nights while visiting family in Ripon . The cottage is over 4 floors , Kitchen and bathroom downstairs, sitting room on floor you enter off the street at , 2 bedrooms on the next floor and a small toilet and sink and then another bedroom at the top of the house . There is plenty of space in the house and as there were only 3 of us ( and not 5 as we first thought) we had lots of room ! The beds we used were extremely comfortable, the bathroom was spacious with excellent shower over the bath ( plenty of hot water !) but it does get very steamed up as no window to open and just a fan . The kitchen / dining area downstairs opens onto the cute back yard and is well equipped ( although we could have used an extra frying pan for the breakfast fry ups ?) Parking is across the street and we were always able to get a space , location is perfect for visiting the local pubs ( we managed 3 of them and had a great Sunday lunch at the White Bear ) and there’s a co- op just round the corner ! We are coming back in October for another wedding in Ripon and will definitely look at booking this property again ! Communication with host and stay was always quick and easy .



Beautiful house, just as described. Great location in a beautiful setting. Will definitely recommend to family and friends.






I like it



Fabulous house which is really well equipped. Everything you could ask for including a Nespresso coffee machine! Plenty of space and a lovely enclosed garden with seating area. The house was spotlessly clean and a great location within 5 mins of great pubs and cafés. Parking available on the road outside. We’ll definitely be back!



Great house with everything you need on 3 floors in the centre of Masham. Would definitely recommend for a place to explore Yorkshire.



A great stay at River View. The property was clean, great facilities and an amazing central location. We particularly loved the view from the living room whilst enjoying the warmth of the log burner. Would love to book again!



Lovely location, playground not far too. parking goes quickly but plenty in market square. Good size house, nice deco, coffee machine, all mod cons in kitchen. alot of stairs though. garden quite small. double beds could do with new mattresses. Great communication .



Fabulous stay for our daughters 30th birthday, we were a party of 5 adults and 3 pugs.
Everything we could have hoped for, very spacious and decorated/furnished to a high spec.
We booked into the Bay Horse for Saturday evening meal, which was a few doors up on the other side, limited menu but quality food from the local butchers nearby.
Everywhere was dog friendly



Great location and accommodation. Would be back.



Lovely house in Masham, so close to the market square. Excellent pub 5 mins up the road - The White Bear. Good walks. Well equipped. Slightly irritating automated ID checking onto top of Airbnb, which didn't work. Clean. Quiet. Warm.



Lovely and clean house, very welcoming, Host & Stay we’re great to deal with, with excellent service and speedy responses when I needed to get in touch with questions! Would definitely recommend



Great place! Comfy, clean and well presented. Would love to go back again in the future



Great central location, lovely little cottage with plenty of room for a family break
The loft room gets incredibly warm so be careful when heating the colder rooms below.



We were a group of five adults, one baby and a dog and found the property very spacious. The location is ideal and there is lots to do in the area, including nice walks straight from the door.



Great location in Masham.
Parking in the market square nearby. Can sometimes park opposite the property if spaces available, which is handy for loading and unloading.
Lots of lovely walks around Masham and along the river. Great pubs and everything you need in the local shops, including a good butchers opposite.



Lovely well equipped accommodation. Very private yet just off the market square. Nice enclosed back garden. Couldn’t ask for more.



A very homely, clean, well equipped accommodation, offering a central location within Masham making it great for exploring the town.
The special touch of Christmas decorations really added to our festive stay.
Would definitely choose again.



clean spacious and very convenient

the heating controls took a bit of working out as no instructions meant we had to ring agent for explanation. The name "river view" there is no river view at all!! so name is misleading



An excellent stay



Very clean, well kept house in great location



Great cottage in an excellent location with all you could wish for in terms of amenities. The cottage was clean and bright and fully equipped with everything you could need. Garden os great size and fully secure.



Great property in an excellent location.

Would highly recommend.



In the sleepy a village of Masham you won’t find a better Airb&b perfect in every way , great food near by and great pubs would definitely recommend for anyone from a family to a group of friends , very reasonable price and super clean and comfortable . Would love to go back sometime !



Everything else was great. Brilliant location in the heart of Masham, well equipped kitchen, plenty of sofas etc and comfortable beds too
The bin arrangements weren't clear.



Great accommodation
Great location for exploring Yorkshire
Black sheep brewery is lovely, great food and staff



great place, central in Masham. House had everything we needed



A beautiful character property across 4 floors in the heart of Masham. A lovely stay and perfect for a group of friends or family. A very easy check in/check out and communication was excellent. The house was in a central location with lots of pubs and walks in close proximity. We had a fantastic weekend and would definitely return/recommend to anyone.



Lovely house in a prime location. Thank you :)



Plenty of space here. Everything was spotless and the garden was a real bonus. Very good location, right in the centre of Masham. Didn’t notice any road noise and would recommend.



The house is perfectly located to explore the very beautiful town of Masham. The space was amazing, had everything we needed and more. Thank you



We stayed here as 5 adults and one baby and it was brilliant! Value for money is second to none. Unfortunately when we stayed the the town of Masham was very quiet with no places open for dinner/food and the brewery had a covid outbreak while our stay too. The fish and chip shop in the town was only open for a 2hr period so I'd make sure to pop down early to avoid disappointment. The place itself has a lot of stairs so if you're a little less agile on your feet I'd take this into consideration. Overall it was perfect and such a gorgeous home!



Beautiful central property in Masham, property is spacious and decorated to a really high standard. Felt a real home from home. Parking was a big tricky during our weekend in July because of lovely weather and number of people on staycations but once parked we didn’t want to leave anyway, Masham was such a lovely market town. Bike shed is fabulous addition and there are some great bike rides from the town into the local villages. A real find!



Excellent location and fantastic property. Highly recommended
