Love the cottage, love Masham. Without a doubt, one of the nicest places we have stayed in. This is our 3rd time! Mike & Sue.

Wonderful cottage and full of little touches that make it even more comfortable. Celine, Chris and family.

We have stayed in many cottages in Masham over the years and this is the best. See you again in May. Chris, Sandra & Mick.

What a fantastic place, so homely and warm. Very very clean and tidy. We will recommend this cottage to all our friends. Debbie, Michael & Family.

Wonderful cottage, we have been very happy here and the little touches made it more enjoyable. The Wyatt's.

What a lovely, lovely cottage. The website photos does not do it justice. My Parent's enjoyed especially the orangery. The Coaton's & Fell's.

Would definately recommend this cottage. We especially loved the remote controlled radios in the bathroom ceilings. The MacKenzie Family.

The cottage is beautiful and was perfect for our needs. The best in Masham. B Burnham.

This is a lovely house and a great location. We loved Masham and enjoyed the black sheep brewery tour and meal. The house is clean and well equipped. Communications from the owners spot on. We will be back.

Beautiful Cottage in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the cottage on arrival, decorated to a high standard, clean and well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. The orangery was a wonderful bonus. The views were amazing and we had lots of lovely walks down the nearby river and around Masham. Plenty of parking and a lovely garden space. We would certainly recommend this cottage and are hoping to go back ourselves later in the year.

Great cottage in a super location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Avenue Cottage for an end of half term short break with my husband and three children. The Cottage was modern, comfortable, spacious and well equipped. All mod-cons; particularly liked the music systems in the bathrooms and kitchen equipment was extensive. The location is fantastic with just a short walk into the lovely village of Masham which has some great shops and places to eat and drink; we particularly liked the White Bear (my husband recommends the Barista stout!). The only issue we had was a faulty bath tap which the owner dealt with very quickly, sending a plumber out immediately who resolved the problem. Highly recommend, sure we will be returning.

Perfect Cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

As we live abroad, we used the cottage as a break from family during our summer back and a chance for friends to visit. It was ideal for this. Loads of space and great extra touches like the wine fridge (which was well used). It was literally a 4 minute walk to a good sized co-op and a 5 minute walk into the centre of pretty Masham, with its great pubs and other amenities. Although the weather didn't allow it, we would definitely have used the bbq in the secluded decking area at the back. All in all a fabulous cottage with everything you could need for a great break in a gorgeous village and part of Yorkshire!!

From the Owner

Masham which is pronounced MASSAM is a beautiful village and only takes minutes to walk to from the cottage. It has a lovely square. 4 Great Pubs. 2 Breweries and Restaurants. Come and see for yourself and like us, you will fall in love with the area. Walkers, there are several walks that run along the River Ure. The cottage is the last house leaving the village so the walks are from the doorstep. Cyclists, the Tour de France passed by the cottage in 2014 so you can ride the same route yourself.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended


Both Whitby (approx 70 miles) and Scarborough (approx 60 miles) are an enjoyable drive from Masham, over the North Yorkshire Moors.
