Lovely short break.

  • 5 of 5

Great property, and great welcome. Had a short break for new year, the property is easy to get to, good parking, and a lovely home from home feel. Comfortable lounge, spacious kitchen, everything you need, and really appreciated a very nice treat of home baked cream sponge cake (extremely good), bread (made top toast), and wine. Thanks so much to the owners.

Wonderful base

  • 5 of 5

The Mews Masham was the perfect base for our family's trip to Yorkshire from the US. The property's gardens are truly spectacular and the hosts were very accommodating - providing a loaf of fresh bread and bottle of wine upon our arrival. The property is quick drive to Masham and has lovely views of country side.

We had a fantastic time in this beautiful cottage. All of us were sad to leave especially our 3 year old. It had everything we needed and more, the home-made bread and cake and fresh flowers and wine were especially welcome. We will definitely be back, thank you so much
